Deadwood is About to Ship

Posted by Cheapass Games (Creator)


Okay. The games are at the warehouse and now Phil and James need to sign 254 high-level backer copies. After that, we will be ready to box up the games and ship them, starting on Tuesday August 27.

Please Answer the Surveys!

There are a small few of you (less than 10%) who have not yet returned your backer surveys. If we don't have your shipping address by next Monday, your awards will ship late. Note that, obviously, the option to pick up your game at Gen Con has passed, unless you want to wait until Gen Con of 2014. 

About the Seattle Pickups:

For those who answered "yes" to picking up your copies of Deadwood at Card Kingdom, we will be holding a release party on an evening in September, most likely Thursday Sept. 12. If you can make it to that party, you can grab your games there. If not, we can have Card Kingdom hold your copy for pickup any time after that.

Gen Con Report:

We just got back from Gen Con, and boy did we have fun. We didn't stray far from the booth all day, mobbed as we were by fans who were glad to see Cheapass Games back in business. We sold lots of Deadwood, along with the other new games, and even sold completely out of Unexploded Cow.

Thanks to all the backers who picked up their copies at the show. For those who missed us, we'll be adding your names to the pack-out list.
