October Surprise

Knock on wood, it is very likely all our backers will have their copies of Hoard by the end of this month, about two months ahead of our original estimated delivery deadline.

A few days ago, Send From China completed sending games to about 400 Hoard backers in North America, Europe, and Asia. Most of these are coming via China Post, which takes 7-20 days to deliver. We have already had word that one UK backer has had their copy arrive in good condition. We can't wait to hear from some more of you; please let us know when your copy arrives.

Antipodeans, your games won't be too far behind. The container with Cheeky Parrot's share of the print run is waiting to be processed at Ports of Auckland. Blondi Logistics expects to deliver to us within the next three days. I have been pre-addressing mailer envelopes and cutting sheets of bubble wrap so that I can hit the ground running when the games arrive.

I will aim to get copies for Australian backers in the post by this Saturday. Our NZ Post International Air service should deliver them within 3-10 days.

Kiwis, I will aim to get your copies in the post next Monday so yours should arrive by Friday, October 21. Aucklanders, you have an opportunity to get yours a bit sooner and in person from me at a small launch party I am hosting this Friday evening. Please send me a message or an email if you'd like to stop by, so I can let you know the address and plan for refreshments.

      Absolutely cracking! This is unheard of in crowdfunding circles. Fantastic!

      Hi Darcy, I'll send you a private message as I'm wanting firm RSVPs to be able to plan for food.

      Hi, where in Auckland are you having your little event? :-) PSVR comes out Thursday, so we've got a demo at work Friday evening... but if it's in the same part of town that'd be convenient! :-) Thanks

      I can't wait, but I guess I'll have to for a bit longer.

      I must admit I was shocked to get mine in the UK on Saturday

      Looking great!

      But... two months ahead of time?? Is that even legal on Kickstarter? ;-)
