US Shipping Update!

Posted by BlankMediaGames (Creator)

Hey Townies!



We got a few updates to send out for you all!

We finally got an email today from Amazon saying that due to the volume of the orders they should start shipping in a week. We wanted to thank all of our backers for being so patient during this entire process. 

We also just got confirmation from GamesQuest our fulfillment center in the UK taking care of everywhere but Australia, New Zealand, the US, Mexico, and Canada that they have shipped all the orders out. This doesn't mean they are necessarily at your door yet, but they have all been sent out. They expect every order to reach everyone's door in 3 weeks. At that point we will make an update saying those orders should have arrived, and will give anyone who didn't get their order the information they need to fix any problems.

We don't have an update for Canadian orders yet, but we will post an update as soon as we have any information like we have been.

      Hi, I'm Canadian and I still haven't got mine. Did all Canadians got that problem or is it still with no news at the moment?

      I appreciate how frustrating this is on all parts, but I find it difficult to believe that you are not able to get concrete information from Amazon... I am also shocked that a company that specializes in shipping items worldwide in 48 hours or less is being accused of being the problem. I can't believe that Amazon cannot figure out how to put a box in the mail and ship it to me since that is EXACTLY their business model and they are great at it. Your Kickstarter raised a huge amount of cash and I feel like that should be motivating you to get this done. If Amazon is the problem, why are you not calling them every 30 minutes and demanding to be moved up the chain of command until this gets resolved? And then update us with something other than, "It's not our fault." I gave you my money... that makes this your fault, so solve it!

      We are working on getting as much information from Amazon as possible currently. We will make an update as soon as we have any information! We are sorry for the problems everyone.

    4. Zachary Rosch on

      I have to admit I'm beginning to feel like it wont ever ship. say Amazon is going to ship them all at the same time and all this waiting from the 24th was just prepping the massive amount of orders. They would be able to update that it was in progress right? the total white out is very suspicious to me.

      As of 11:40am EST I still have not received word on when my copy of the game will be delivered. What's up with that?

      As terrible as it sounds, I'm honestly glad to see all the comments about people not getting their games so I know it's not just me. I'm sure that BlankMedia is just trying to work around Amazon's crappy service timing, but it's definitely frustrating because I just want to be in the loop. I'm fine with waiting but I wanna know I'm still waiting rather than it was missent or something like that.

    7. Zachary Rosch on

      And another month goes by wothout an email. What the heck is goong on? I'm starting to worry that amazon lost orders. And one party or the other is too afraid to let us now.

    8. John Woods on

      Originally we were told orders should ship at the end at January. It's a few hours away from March. What the heck is going on? Should we be contacting Amazon, or what? Apparently it's asking a lot to just want to play.

    9. Starfrog on

      How will we receive word from Amazon? I got an Email from BMG almost 2 weeks ago (Feb 17th) that the game would be shipping out in a week. I haven't been contacted by Amazon OR BMG about this, anyone in the USA gotten their copy yet?

      Maybe we should be contacting Amazon and telling them how crappy they are. They've screwed over BMG and the backers.

    12. Elizabeth on

      11 days ago.
      A week consists of 7 days, it's been closer to two weeks and no updates.

      ��� they played us good.

      ok this was posted on the 17 and its the 28th now. im sure they are just working on it but when should we expect a tracking email? will it be from amazon then..... i still havnt gotten anything and im in the midwest US. i know BMG wasnt at fault with this it was just crazy at all the delays....amazon shouldnt be this bad esp this time of year...they ship stuff so they are the ones goofing.

    14. Rowen Foster on

      I previously criticized BMG for the delays, and I want to amend what I said. A part of the delay is on BMG, which is unfortunate but definitely excusable since this is their first time doing something like this. I now see that the other part of the delay is on Amazon, which is definitely not excusable. This is supposedly Amazon's specialty, but they're leaving so many people in the dark.
      Sorry for my impatience with you earlier, BMG. I appreciate your communication on the shipping.

    15. Smoke Rulz on

      Amazon really droping the ball for North America. It's been 10 days since this update and I haven't gotten an email or a shipment at all. Sorry you have to feel all this stress, BMG, we really want to play your game!

    16. BlankMediaGames 5-time creator on

      Really sorry for all of the delays everyone. The games have been at Amazon for a few weeks now and they are really dropping the ball on getting them fulfilled. The EU fulfillment centers had them sent out within a few days but for some reason Amazon is taking much longer. We are basically stuck waiting for their updates.

      I really hope it comes, this is the most hype for a card game I had in a while. (besides smashup)

    19. Kristian Italianchigipirate Kinder on

      Hey just wanted to let you know amazon has yet to contact me and I'm getting worried there's a distributor really close to my house...

    20. Dr Civilization on

      May I just say that I can sympathize with @BlankMediaGames in the fact that this is just totally out of their control. They spent an enormous amount of time and effort designing the game and hyping it up, and even throwing a party with rooms that were literally given away!!! (I won one but ended up not being able to go in the end) This is probably one of the best and most thought out kickstarter projects out there that ported an electronic game to IRL, and I just want them to know that even though there were some bumps that at least SOMEONE can understand that it is out of their control and appreciate what they are doing.

      It's pretty sad when one of the backers gets more info from Amazon than the actual creators. Are you guys even calling Amazon? Emails are obviously not working, you guys need to CALL Amazon and see what's going on. You need to stop giving us empty promises, We're all getting pretty frustrated now :/

      Hmm November > December > End of January > Beginning of February > One more week > and it's now been over a week with no email from Amazon? Any update here BMG? It'd be nice if on the day you say it's going to start shipping that you actually update and let us now.

      No email yet. This has been the most frustrating waiting process I've ever experienced. I have told my friends countless times that I want to try a game with them only to have deadlines missed over, and over, and over again. I've tried to be understanding with pushing deadlines back but this is just ridiculous. :(

    28. Zachary Rosch on

      Anyone have an email yet? Im expecting one between now and the 27th

      Do you have any idea how long the shipping process is going to take? Even a range would be nice.

      @christine wang

      this is not a scam. BMG's is an actual company and has a product known as town of salem. it's not in their interest to agitate their customers. but yes they did not do as much research as they should have.

      @ jared Brown

      Yes and No. yes some people are jumping guns and saying this is a scam when it's not. and yes it is the nature of kickstarter, and yes this is their first physical item. I understand.

      However their is room for actual complaint. shipment is 4 months delayed. thats almost half a year. It's not like some disaster happened that no one could have predicted. BMG went with the lowest bidder, (they did not care to keep up their end and delayed) tried to ship during the busiest time of year, (again, delays) and did not do enough research on importing into countries. Us orders are only now about to ship. And as many Canadians have said they don't even have a date.

      I don't doubt BMG's intentions, I really don't. they have done well and I know they are doing their best to keep things going. However intentions are not always everything. And as a company they have failed in regards.

      Jared Brown on

      As I read some of these comments I'm starting to think that some people aren't aware of the fact stuff happens or just don't care about it I get that your upset that the game didn't come when it was projected but through out this entire process BMG has done their best to keep us as backers posted so don't just sit their playing the blame game when you don't even want to understand the situation you constantly put them in because you want to throw a fit because your stuff hasn't come in on time. Also like they've said before this is their first PHYSICAL product that they've tried putting out so of course some snags are bound to surface because it's something new and different from what they've done before. So chill people???

      Christine Wang on

      This entire project is starting to feel like a scam. The people beind it take forever to make a single update, and when they do, it's for useless and pointless info that we don't care about. As a Canadian resident, it's ridiculous to hear that there's problems importing into Canada. What kind of BS is that? It's been almost two months since the problem arised, and there's still no progression? Did you even SHIP our games? Besides, why would you EVER have trouble importing a card game into a country that is huge on trade? I will NEVER support your company ever again, and I will make sure to dedicate time in order to ensure that nobody that I know of will support you and your illegitimate company ever again. Terrible waste of a 35 dollars.

    40. BlankMediaGames 5-time creator on

      @Riley @Zachary The Amazon orders haven't started shipping yet, they will start shipping out the 24th.

    41. Zachary Rosch on

      well at least now we know...

      Is that in a week all orders should be shipped, or in a week they will start to ship?

    42. Derek Brown on

      It's a little funny going through the comments posted by people poisoned by the instant gratification of the internet but anyways that BMG even bothered to do this in the first place should make the people who backed them happy

    43. Ben Peet on

      Thank you very much. My NSFW cards arrived a few weeks ago, I'm in the UK. The cards look great and I hope people don't give you too much of a hard time over the delays.

      Seriously, other backers. Have you never had to wait for a bus, train or plane that didn't turn up? Sometimes things happen, give BMG a break. I mean, they could be giving out far less updates than they are, but they're keeping people informed.

      Riley McCandless on

      Hello! I was wondering, am I supposed to be checking Amazon for my order? Or what's going on? I put in my address here on the kickstarter. I finalized my address. So is there a place where I can check, or was I supposed to do something with Amazon back in November. Please answer my question. I need to know if I screwed up or not and wasted money.

    46. BlankMediaGames 5-time creator on

      @Krista I understand your frustration and you would think it would be that easy. When we found out Amazon didn't start immediately sending out orders we sent them an email asking when they would be sent out, several, we just got an answer back when we posted the last update. We are doing everything to keep you all in the loop as much as possible. We do have some optimistic expectations in hindsight for a November delivery, our research said that it was possible, but we now know that the estimates we looked up must have been everything runs perfect without any delay what so ever. We are doing everything we can to keep you all informed on the status of everything. We don't get anything out of sitting on the games or creating delays, so we wouldn't want to do that.
