For anyone who wants to see what the ABWCS looks like we have a picture up now on the facebook page.
@Adan- Charlie still hasn't gotten ahold of the guy that made our dice bags, as soon as we get some more in we will ship them, not sure when that will be right now.
@Y.K. Luk- Yes, I believe I shipped out your order last week, but if I recall correctly you live overseas so its probably going to be a few weeks before you see it.
Still waiting for my Kauri. Is it shipped?
Still the same for non-Kauri or Bog wood backers?
yay!! and the dice bag too?
Remember that while the new Kickstarter has started, it is going to run another 6 weeks then be several more before they see the funds, then a bit more time for surveys once everyone's pledges are settled. At that point real work will begin on any new orders and by then we will all have our dice.
The only thing going into the new KS is some typing time on the part of the AD crew and brainstorming. It'll be two months conservatively before they are actually making dice for the new KS backers and if they are almost done all of ours it makes sense to line up more guaranteed work by then.
--Fellow ABWCS "Survivor" :D
@Carroll- Ya I'll try to throw in something extra for you
@Douglas- We have shipped out part of it, still working on some Kauri boxes and ABWCS boxes, you can see pictures on our facebook page.
@danjensen- Sadly we have had to throw away some of the Kauri we got in, it wasn't the type we ordered :-/ takes a lot more time and effort to do Kauri than any other type of dice, mostly due to the boxes.
@Dan/Becky- Anyone who pledges on the next Kickstarter is going to be waiting several months to get their dice. We have shipped out 99.75% of our orders for this Kickstarter, and we really just couldn't wait any longer to start the new one. MOST Kickstarters take much longer than their projected dates to get filled, and considering that unlike nearly all other game Kickstarters our project involves dice that are made entirely by hand one piece at a time instead of being mass produced in a factory, and considering that the project received about 100x more orders than we ever anticipated making, I don't think 9 extra months to reach 100% completion is entirely unreasonable. It's certainly much longer than we had hoped it would take, and we have apologized numerous times for the delays.
It's been almost a year. You start a new Kickstarter and I STILL don't have my Ancient Bog Wood collectors set yet? Not cool.
We're in the home stretch lads and ladies, keep the faith. :)
Allow me to get my Pulp Fiction on...
I don't wanna hear about no metal dice. All I wanna hear from you is, You ain't got no problem, Kauri backers. I'm on the motherf'r. Go back in there, chill them backers out and wait for the Kauri dice which should be coming directly.
The special community you speak of is, went in big... waited a year... and watched as another Kickstarter was created and we still don't have our dice. Well hopefully, as the update says, everything is being sent today.
I am starting to feel like part of a special community... the "Kauri Survivors".. we went in big and aren't leaving until the rest of the platoon is far gone.
Any update on the final shipping?
Thanks for the update.
*laughing* My kind of luck, I guess. The wenge looks gorgeous. Can't wait to begin crushing PCs with them!
Thanks for getting back to me.
@Josh Rensch- none of the ABWCS have been sent out yet.
@Bryan Campbell- your dice were sent out August 1st, USPS is still showing it as in transit, so it probably got lost in the mail. I'll send you out another set.
@Sean Poynter- Thanks for your patience!
Hell yea, I'm excited to get my dice! And I can't wait for the metal dice kickstarter!
Same. I thought I've seen my name in the past, but the initials are pretty common. Plus, I haven't gotten anything yet.
I have never seen my name on any of the updates. I went with the Ancient Bog Woods Collector's Set and the one thing that has kept me quiet is a friend got his set so I know they are shipping. I really hope that I get my soon.
According to Charlie, we will be done with all of the Kickstarter orders by the end of next week.
Ditto the below comment
I do not see my name there... when can I expect my dice?
