GripMat Update

Backers -

GripMats

For the 165 of you who backed to receive a GripMat, you will be happy to know that I have  a confirmed ship date for when these will be shipping form factory to BFR for packaging. December 18th.  Thus we should have the mats around 12/23.  During the week of Christmas the team will be out of town, until the 27th... thus we will begin shipping the GripMats upon our return on the 27th.

Connectors / Manuals

Many of you have received your revised manuals.  Many more of you will next week.  The balance should have them by the end of the month.  If you have not received a manual by the 4th of January - we missed you, or have a wrong address. Contact us at info@bfrgames.com

GripMats on Kickstarter & Contest on BGG

We are funded!  And we have unlocked a lot of art! GripMat Kickstarter  

We have also launched a contest on boardgamegeek.  Good luck for all those you participate: BGG Contest

Thank you all - and hopefully you are finding Disaster Looms! a much better game with a much better written manual.  We spent months working on getting the revised manual just right - we hope you think it was worth it.

Cheers ~Eric Salyers~

      1.) Just a bit, but yes. I apologize - it is just a lot of cost for me to do this - I am trying to save where I can.
      2.) You should get the mats the first week of January. It is my goal to make sure you have them in time to throw in your support if you like what you see. I do suggest seeing the video if you have not. You will be doubly excited that you have one coming soon!

      So to clarify a couple of points.
      1.) If we were waiting on the mat to get our manual, we will be waiting a bit longer.
      2.) given shipping times, it is highly unlikely we will see this mats now before the ending of your other kickstarter. which is a shame as I am withholding backing there and telling friends about it until I saw what the mats are like.

      @Bob - The Seafarers expansion will fit, but not 5-6 player. If you want a 5-6 player GripMat + Seafearers expansion - I suggest the 24" x 32" GripMat with Oceans background. I will fit PERFECTLY. I just tested to make sure.

      Team - thanks for the update. After watching your video and looking at all the advantages of the mat (and other uses for it,) I'm pretty excited to receive mine, and then potentially back the Kickstarter as well. This may seem silly, or may be answered elsewhere - but do you have a larger option for playing Seafarers (similar perhaps to the Eclipse one, or would it fit on a 24x24?
