      Thanks everyone for your support! @Matthew everything is set to fit into one box. So many components! @Joseph, we hope this game will last a century! @John, @Joshua, @Epic, the teal was a colour just for the mock-up of the tray to show detail. We have mentioned a few times that the tray was going to be a dark grey. I know, it looked really cool in teal. But the cost of changing the colour didn't make sense.

      Nice update, but I thought the inserts were going to be a nice teal color?

      Quality is top priority for me. Take as long as it calls for. That’s the problem with the young people of this age... they want everything quick, easy and cheap. In our family we keep quality items for ever. Example I have my grandfathers victrola in my living room which we purchased new in 1917. It still works great! Send me game that will last a century!

      Honestly don't worry (too much) about the timing!
      This ain't Amazon Prime: I'm not here for lightning fast delivery, I just want the best game possible, and the one you're most proud of.
      Keep up the good work folks!

      @big, thanks for the update and the honesty re the possibility of a delay. Personally i find your attention to detail reassuring.

      I have a question.. apologies if this has already been asked/answered. Will the contents of the commodore pledge fit in the normal game box or come in a separate one?

    6. Aron Stegenga on

      Great update. Good to read that you go for quality.

      We'll "remember dancing in September"!!

      Thanks for the quick reply.

      @Aron Still on track for Sep 2018!

      Hi there,
      Any news? Whats the current ETA?
      Have difficulty in waiting for this game :)

    11. Mr. Q on

      @Brian, you would need to share it with Einstein

      Awesome Thanks!

    13. Brian on

      @Tagapayo Do you have room in your Delorean for one more?

    14. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @Richard we should have them by the end of this week or the beginning of next week. They are in transit. I cannot wait! I guess you can't either ;)

      did the trays and rest of the mini's come in to peek at?

    16. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      Hahahaha @Tagapayo!

    17. Mr. Q on

      @BIG, just saw a Delorean for sale on Craigs list. Now, if I can find some way to produce 1.21 gigawatts, I should be able to travel into the future! I believe that’s about 10 jet engines.... September here I come!

    18. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @Dov it looks like the Commodore is going to be around 10lbs.

      Dov on

      What's the shipping weight going to be for the Commodore version?

    20. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      Haha @Shaun! Thank so much @Todd! We're sorry we sucked you back in, but we couldn't help it ;)

    21. Todd Fancher on

      I just wanted to mention, I had quit backing stuff on Kickstarter until this project came along. I’m really looking forward to this.
      That’s all, you can go back to what you were doing.

    22. Shaun Giller on

      Whoa 80 days!?!? Sounds like some Phileas Fogg nonsense. you can't get around the world in 80 days! :D

    23. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @PlanBee, that is unfortunately not the way it is going to work. It will take about 80 days. You'll still have your game in September. We timed everything according to the manufacturer and ocean freight schedules. As @Vondodo has mentioned, we will be using HappyShops. We listened to what you wanted and made our choice accordingly.

    24. Vondodo on

      PlanBee they said they would change logistic company. GQ at the time they said it, was piling huge delays (in order of monthS) with another famous company. SInce then things got even worse. They said the name of the new company but i forgot :|

      So perhaps manufacturing and disbursement to port can be finished by end of May

      A month on the water gives end of June.

      A month from dock to my door (plus 2 weeks if you are using Games Quest in the UK😐)

      So end July a possibility. September looks very likely.

      @All The box is 295 x 400 x 90mm.

    27. Aron Stegenga on

      Move along and enjoy the news :)

      @Aron It’s real! Many of my website subscribers are not Backers, so I wanted to update them with the progress. 😁

    29. Aron Stegenga on

      If its not spam and normal true mail... sorry.
      But better to be safe then viruses or something.

    30. Aron Stegenga on

      Just got an e-mail from: team@grandgamersguild.com

      Looks spam, not normal start of message and suspicious links...
      And info i already got in the update.

      Seems like Some things may be at risk. Carefull when you got mail and dont just look at the links unless you know its safe!

      This is my first time backing anything on kickstarter and I'm so thrilled to be a part of this.

    32. Aron Stegenga on

      A game made with love! Looking forward to it.

    33. Skazz on

      This really is a beauty. Cannot wait to play this with my family. Hope this will really arrive a couple of weeks before Essen so that we could really focus on this one.

    34. Keith O'Day on

      I need control of time and space to make it September already ! That game is downright gorgeous !

    35. Kalack99 on

      Once again, you guys knock it out of the park! This game looks beautiful! Very excited to play and very glad I Backed this KS!

    36. Monsters & Mazes on

      @ creator: AWESOME production, I LOVE it !!!
      (could you show some MORE pictures >>
      the WOODEN TRADE tokens & ASSET cards :-)
      I just can't wait to hold my copy !

    38. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      Thanks everybody for your kind words about the game! We are so excited to bring it to you. @Kim, going to mass production soon only means it is going to be delivered on time. Mass production is going to be between 60 and 75 days (including weekends), and then there is the matter of freight to different regions (30 days). So, it looks like we're working right within our timelines. I wish I could say that we could bring this masterpiece to you sooner.

      If you are going into mass production soon, does it mean we will get it sooner?

      Holy shit!. Thats one gorgeous piece of game,,,

      I am salivating over here lol. Probably a good thing to get it out of my system because I do not want to drool over that beautiful box lol!

      Oh my god. Those pictures are gorgeous. I’m ridiculously excited for this game.

      @Tommy, you're going to want to wash your hands when you do get ahold of it ;)

    44. Tommy on

      The game is looking amazing, cannot wait till I get my dirty paws on it...

    45. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @Hugues!! That's amazing! So happy to hear this. We are also excited for September to arrive. It's worth the wait! I promise :)

    46. Hugues Lamy on

      I backed the game before having any idea or played the game before. One of my friend has the Ystari version of it, and I had the chance to try Endeavor for the first time. For me, this was an instant hit. Not too long, not too short, many options but not to the point were you are in an analysis paralysis, no luck involved except the game setup and just enough attacks that you slightly shake you opponents without destroying an hour of play. So happy to have back this game at the Commander level and September/October could't arrive soon enough for me to play this new version.

    47. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @Deecu we should have it in our hands this week :) We'll send out an update with photos. We are incredibly excited too!

    48. Deecu on

      Have you allready received the pre-production copy? Can't wait to have a look at that, and hear your comments about it!
