Some shipping news

I wanted to report in before now, but I was waiting until I had some concrete timeline information to pass along. 

The Hoard production proof arrived on August 25. It looks gorgeous! I brought it to my usual studio (a cafe with nice dark wood tables) and took lots of photos, some of which have been shared in our quarterly newsletter and on social media, some of which appear for the first time in this update.

Our precious!

I am advised that the games will leave the Whatz factory on September 19. Cheeky Parrot's supply will come by ship and I hope to have them by late October to post to our Kiwi and Australian backers. Meanwhile, the shipment to fulfil non-Australasian backer pledges will be trucked to the Send From China warehouse in Guangdong, and I'm told they should arrive there by September 23. I will do all I can to make sure copies can be posted promptly after they arrive, hopefully before workers depart for their week-long National Day Golden Week holidays on October 1. Since we have a bit of breathing room, I have reopened address changes for the next week only.

By the way, I did follow through on my intention to write a reflection about our Kickstarter experience, I just neglected to share it here. It's on the Cheeky website if you're interested.
