In all fairness... we are not. We are determined to try, but recent events related to COVID-19 as well as more structural increase in demand for board game production related to the overall gift season will likely have a negative impact on our plans.
As we cannot place a final order with the factory until we cross the campaign finish line on September 30, we cannot get any guarantees from the suppliers that they can handle our (relatively small, for their standards) order just before the Christmas craziness commences.
Worst case, production of our board game may have to wait for January of 2021 and delivery may not be possible until March of 2021.
If our campaign looks to succeed, once we hit the final week, we will inform all backers of the likely change in delivery times and provide everybody with the opportunity to change their mind about backing our project. So if you really need the game by Christmas, you can cancel your support and buy another gift in stead.
We hope you appreciate our transparency and efforts to keep you informed.
