      Hi Gino, mine arrived yesterday and it's just AWESOOOOOOOOME. Cant thank you guys enough for a classic game, you all did so much to keep us up to date and made sure we all got our games as soon as humanly possible, so follow these instructions.....
      1. get everyone involved and all stand in a circle facing the back of the next person
      2. reach out and pat the back of the person in front of you and say "well done for doing such an awesome job"
      3.smile knowing that you all contributed to making Ghostel the Great game it is.

      Many thanks to all at Tinkerbot Games.

      Received mine, looks great, and it even survived MyHerpes dumping the parcel at the rear of the house, and not telling us! I found it before much of the snow arrived though..

      The combination of the unboxing video and hearing that people are getting them already is getting me so pumped! I can't wait to get this on the table and have some ghostly fun.

      Hi folks, just popping my head above the parapet of backing boxes and bubble wrap to say a huge thank you for your comments, the excitement in them has me all giddy!

    9. Terence Burnett on January 10

      Just received mine. Components are great. Thick linen cardstock.
      Ghost meeples are fantastic, paperweights almost. Box size was a pleasant surprise. With shelf space at a premium it was refreshing to have a practical size box instead of today's fad of selling boxes of air.
      Receiving ahead of schedule for a first time KS shows you guys did your homework.

      Would be glad to back future games from the "Bots"

      Just a quick note: on the address confirmation form, the letter è in my street name was all mangled up, so I entered a new address with the right character in it. You might want to double-check this in the final address list though - I've had issues with delivery on two occasions because of this. Thanks!

      Hi Ramsey, easiest way is to send us a direct message in Kickstarter, we can then update our shipping spreadsheet.

      Put this in the wrong comments thread! The cards will be standard 'Magic' size so will fit any 2.5" by 3.5" sleeve. Just double checked and fits snug without any muscling.

      Sorry if this has been asked already but can the cards be sleeved? And if so, what size sleeves?

    29. Devon Zoccole on August 16, 2016

      I have to say that I am super excited to have won the pun-thom contest! I was very surprised when I read that because there were so many excellent contenders. Thanks to everyone who voted for me and thanks to the Tinkerbots for doing this for the fans and for all your hard work. Can't wait to finally get the game in hand.

      @Dave Morrison:
      Hi Dave! You can do this by going back into the campaign, clicking on "View your pledge" and in on of the tabs you can update your address. However, it's probably a lot easier just to send us a direct message with your new address on it and we'll update it on our end! Thanks!

      Hi Eileen, apologies for the delay. The Cultist expansion is being included as part of the print run being used to fulfil the Kickstarter pledges. We're including the Cultist expansion in the box to simplify the fulfilment process and make sure no mistakes happen during the postage process.

      If we later go on to produce further copies of Ghostel as 'retail copies' in a second print run, we'll have to consider the most sensible course of action regarding keeping the expansion in the main box or separating it out as a standalone.

      For BGG purposes it should be considered a true expansion. The base game plays perfectly well without it, and in all aspects it fulfils the role of an add-on you include to change up the base game.

      Hope that makes sense!

      @Creator - regarding Cultist - "This expansion will in fact be included in every copy of Ghostel printed by us at Tinkerbot Games, and not as a separate set of cards sent later."

      Are you talking about Kickstarter or also about Retail? What I'm trying to parse out of this is, should Cultist be listed as an actual Expansion at BGG or not?

    43. Nigel Belmont on April 2, 2016
