Update on fixing first print issues: (8)

Hi Monster Lover,

I've run into some financial issues due to a family crisis. Financially it's going to cost me ~12k. That's not the main issue. Right now I just want to sincerely apologize in advance for upcoming delays. I know that shipping and logistics have been a major pain for you during this campaign. I know that the print issues have held many back from being able to enjoy the game. You have every right to be angry and I don't blame you. However, regardless of everything I will work to make everything right, and never give up on completing this project. Please bear with me. We're looking at an end of year delivery for the Vampyre, Zombie, Alien collector deck replacement cards. I understand you will be angry and I apologize for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Payton

      I wanted to give you a positive shout out Payton for doing a great job on this.

      As a fellow game Kickstarter, my heart goes out to you for this. I can only begin to imagine the logistical challenges this is giving you (let alone the massive financial ones - ugh on the shipping costs). I found it 100% taxing just to do normal fulfillment, to come back and do these corrections would break me.

      I haven't kept a close eye on this but are PnP cards an option? If you have not done that, I know that most game peeps would find that awesome (because most game peeps are awesome themselves). =)

      My hats off to you for being open and honest, and I have absolutely no doubt things will get better (both for the few impatient backers and for you).

      Good luck Payton and thank you. =)

      Beyond the misprinted cards I cannot play all of my game. You sent me two mummy sets and no vampire.

      So I am not keen to wait until possibly never to receive corrected prints.

      Please send me a vampire set even though it is misprinted.

      @Payton
      How much is the shipping of my replacement cards to London UK please?

      I am willing to cover the cost. I know it isn't ideal but would very much like the corrected cards. There is no point you having the corrected cards but not financially able to send it to me, so I am willing to pay for that cost, just let me know how much please

      Considering I got my missing cards yesterday, and can finally play the game. I'm fine with waiting on the misprinted back cards.

      @Eric Arsenault - drawing from the bottom will hide the misprinted symbol on the back of the cards.

      @John Berry - I think we have to assume that Payton was issued bad product for review and missed the issues, which would make him responsible. I'm guessing it was more of a novice mistake since this is his first experience with producing a game.

      @Payton - For a while I thought you were a dead beat. I no longer think so. I feel bad for you and all the troubles you've had on this campaign. The game you produced is really fun, and got around 20 plays from my 'serious' gamer group, simply because it was enjoyable (even though it's not deep). I wish you the best of luck in navigating through your personal issues. I sincerely hope that you're able to make some profits off the future sales of Monster Mansion.

      No worries - it's all fun and games for us. Good luck with family! =)

      No worries. What I got is very playable. Deal with your family first. I hope it is not serious and solvable. Maybe when that's cleared you can send out another survey because some of us probably change address by then.

    9. Jerónimo VC on

      Misprints are play-able, don't care too much. I filled in the survey, but if the wait for replacement cards exceeds 6 months, I'll have to let it send to another adres, since the building I'm living in will be demolished, and I'll move to another city..... Any ideas how we should handle this?

      I just bought myself coloured-back card sleeves - one colour for each deck (as I pledged for the lot). No problems whatsoever; no advanced warnings, and my cards are protected from red wine stains! I'm not in the least bothered by delays.

      I've been playing my copy for weeks now. My friends love it. (admittedly ours was printed fine). I'm sorry to hear you are stretched too thin to devote time to the reprints, that is definitely unfortunate, but I would hope that everyone on here understands that this A) Isn't your full time job and B) in order to fix the problems with a quality product, it will take more time, which like you said, you don't have. Best of luck. I hope everyone who does get to play enjoys the game as much as my friends and I do.

    12. Michael Tighe on

      It's cool. Deal with your family stuff.

      I was bummed my stuff was misprinted when I first got it, then I remembered it was just a game and everything was ok.

    13. P@rick on

      LOL! Thanks Dude. Every one of your posts puts a smile on my face. I called the September 2016 delivery in your last update but you just confirmed it.

      I agree with John. This is beyond ridiculous, unprofessional, and unacceptable. I'd still like to know how you are going to address the backers, like myself, that have pieces missing and unplayable games?

      I'm sorry if you actually are in the middle of a family crisis but based on your history of delays, and history of excuses, i find it really hard to believe anything you say.......

      This is kinda ridiculous. And unacceptable. Why if it was their printing mistake are you having to pay the bill. Like, I understand that it's not their responsibility usually to cover the shipping... but like if you fuck something up, shouldn't you be responsible for unfucking it?

      I understand about the misprints. I'm able to enjoy the game even with them, and am looking forward to getting the reprints whenever they arrive. I'm more concerned with the Medieval monsters and hero that were supposed to be in my game and weren't.

    16. Ken Konyshak on

      No worries bra... we've been playing WITH misprints WITHOUT issues so I don't understand why some of these knuckleheads are complaining. Family first. I'm trusting you'll fix the issues but regardless... It's a great game.

    17. Eric Arsenault on

      Best of luck, family first =)

      Have not played the game yet, what will drawing from the bottom instead of the top do exactly ?

      Payton, I agree with the people saying you are really trying and it is appreciated. When you say the replacement cards are coming end of year, you mean December 2016?

      I know you're a trustworthy guy, Payton, so I also know you're doing your best. I have no doubt you put a lot of your personaly finances into this to deliver everything to this point. Thanks for all the transparency -- your backers are here for ya.

      Hey Peyton, the game still works and thanks for always being open and honest with this whole thing. As another creator and small business owner I super sympathize with you and it's very commendable that you've always done the right thing and want to make things right by the backers.

      Ignore the haters and thanks for being awesome. Hope all is well with your family and best of luck! Will patiently wait the replacement decks and will enjoy the game until then.

      Just draw from the bottom of the deck instead of the top and there is no issue at all

    22. Dylan Grozdanich

      The game is still playable, just have some advanced warnings on what's coming for the collector's decks unfortunetly.

      Will be nice to have the proper decks, but the game still works, so no issues there.

      Just curious, but how much are the replacement decks if you break them down by the number of backers requesting them?

      Wow. So, I'm gonna guess that this is it. I've been holding off playing the game until I had non-misprinted cards. But, it's sounding like that will never happen. Sorry this went bad for you Payton, and all the backers. I kind of just want to throw the game away at this point.

      Delays happen, issues pop up, and family comes first. Thank you for the update and we look forward to replacement cards. The game is great and the misprints are playable.

      No worries Payton, it's admirable that you want to make things right.
