      Were the additional exploits always intended to be printed out by the backers? I didn't see info on same uploaded to campaign unless i missed it. Tbh a little disappointed that we have to create our own pieces i would have rather paid extra for actual content versus a printout.

      Great Thanks for the Exploits PnP
      you just send to me :-)

    3. Supermaño on

      @Burnt Island Games Oh, I like the new exploits. When will you hang the rules and exploits in other languages as you said during the kickstarter, like Spanish? Thank you

      Hello @Tamara! I did reply to you in a PM, but I can say it here as well. Unfortunately the Commodore was closed a while ago. Once we put in an order with the manufacturer, we closed it up. BUT you can still get the Captain at a much lower price than you would in retail.

    5. Tamara Mena on

      I had not been able to answer the survey and now, I want to do it, but the page don't let me pay for Comodore version, just for Captain. What can I do to get Comodore?

    6. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      @Robert, that's no problem. You have until July to change your delivery address. I will PM you to send you the link. Thanks!

      I have moved - what would the easiest way be to switch up my delivery address?

      It is summer here in Europe... and I love summer... but still I want it to be finished quickly so I can play this game :)

    9. Kalack99 on

      Looking amazing!

      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.

    11. John Irwin on

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

    12. Joseph Edgar Parris

      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?

    15. Aron Stegenga on

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

    16. Kalack99 on

      We'll "remember dancing in September"!!

    17. Aron Stegenga on

      Thanks for the quick reply.

    18. Grand Gamers Guild Collaborator

      @Aron Still on track for Sep 2018!

    19. Aron Stegenga on

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

    20. Mr. Q on

      @Brian, you would need to share it with Einstein

    21. Richard Stecher

      Awesome Thanks!

    22. Brian on

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

    23. 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 ;)

    24. Richard Stecher

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

    25. Burnt Island Games Creator on

      Hahahaha @Tagapayo!

    26. 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!

    27. 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?

    29. 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 ;)

    30. 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.

    31. Shaun Giller on

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

    32. 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.

    33. 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.

    35. Grand Gamers Guild Collaborator

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

    36. Aron Stegenga on

      Ah, thanks for clearing it up!

      Move along and enjoy the news :)

    37. Grand Gamers Guild Collaborator

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

    38. Aron Stegenga on

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

    39. Aron Stegenga on

      Just got an e-mail from:

      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.

    41. Aron Stegenga on

      A game made with love! Looking forward to it.

    42. 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.

    43. Keith O'Day on

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

    44. 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!

    45. Monsters & Mazes on

      Game looks great! Bummed I missed out on getting tix to play at GenCon. The event sold out in 1 second:(

      @ 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 !

    47. 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?
