We have something to ask you

Hello Meeple Friends,

We were really blown away by the kind comments on our latest update. Even though shipping progress is not where we want it to be, your support for us has been incredible. And, we hear (thanks James!) that the Australian meeples have started to arrive at their forever homes, which is super pleasing.

We were struck by the number of comments which universally said (paraphrase incoming), "You should sell them at PAX AUS. We don't mind."

Well, we won't lie to you: getting some extra sales at the biggest event on the Australian gaming calendar would certainly help us. The US Dollar keeps going north against our currency, so everything helps.

But. we're also mindful that while anyone likely to *be* at PAX AUS has their meeples, the rest of the world does not.

So, this is us now asking formally:

Would you object if we shared the meeple joy and sold them on our PAX AUS stand?

Please let us know in the comments, or via direct message. We completely respect your opinion, as you are in effect the Executive Producers on this project.

This would just be for direct sales at this convention, we will not put them on our website for general mail order sale until all shipments are on the way to you. We wouldn't like a situation where Person A in the UK could order them, while Person B who backed it was still waiting.

Let us know, and either way: thanks for everything.

Best,

Mark, Andre, Penny & Jackson

      By all means, go right ahead and sell them. Your ability to increase your sales, and therefore your ability continue to make great products, is by far the best course of action for everyone. You do amazing work and I don't want that to stop.

      Sell away! More sales from PAX-AUS = healthier cashflow = Campaign Coins keeps on producing shiny things for years to come.

      Absolutely, not a problem. So long as prioritizing PAXAus sales doesn't increase my wait time anyways; looking forward to getting my grubby mitts on them!

    14. Alec Usticke on

      No problem. Sell away.

      @everyone: There are not enough emojis in the world to express how moved we are by your response. Thank you. The meeples will roam free at PAX AUS this weekend.

      (And, as soon as PAX AUS and Essen are over, we'll focus on getting those remaining shipments moving.)

      Grand sale, grand sale, grand sale!

      I'm waiting by my mailbox for delivery but more than happy for them to be at PAX Aus because we know you have all the product for the Kickstarter set aside.

      PS. See you tomorrow at PAX!

      So far as I'm concerned go ahead. I appreciate that you care about your backers but I think it should go both ways. Just keep making cool gaming stuff and I'm happy ☺

      I'm fine with you selling them, especially if you're also willing to sell the "defective" ones as well, because I'm frankly kind of disturbed by the possible waste of hundreds (thousands?) of perfectly serviceable meeples.

      Share the Meeple love as far and wide as you can. Heck, if I could, I'd order several additional batches myself right now just because I want more of my friends to have these wonderful little guys.

    27. Markus Enghardt on

      EU backer (Sweden). Please sell as many as possible at PAX AUS. You’ve created wonderful meeples, and they should be on sale and display at the convention.

      US Backer (and game designer, so maybe I'm biased...)

      Sell them guys. They're only running late because you are so dedicated to quality - that's a trait to be admired, not punished.

      I’m good with it as long as it doesn’t divert any meeples from KS fulfillment.

      I'm in the USA and I want you to sell them at PAX AUS. The more people who get to enjoy these, the better! Please do what is best for your business so that we'll have great meeples for years to come.

      As a UK citizen. I am happy for it to be sold at Pax, mirrored by other comments you have been up front, informative and responsive to feedback in regard to your product. I have absolutely zero problems with you guys continuing to do good business at your events, after all the tinkering you guys have done it's time to get something back!

    35. Nattakorn Vuttichaipornkul on

      I understand, go ahead and sell them at PAX.

      I posted on the other update, but here's my vote again: go ahead with sales at PAX AUS! International freight is always a headache, but you're clearly doing all you can to move things along.

      You have been one of the most vocal Kickstarter campaigns I have backed. I trust in the work you do, and know that you will use this opportunity in a good way.

      US Supporter, I say sell them. You have done everything you could to get these into our hands. The US/North America shipment is tied up by your distribution house having other commitments. Your Asian/Australian Distribution seems to be well underway. Your UK/EU distribution is tied up by events outside your control.
