      Have to say I'm a little worried too. Whilst I'm used to kickstarters being delayed, usually this is accompanied by regular communication.

      I'm also concerned about the lack of clarity on the pdf versions and why we have to wait for these to be 'shipped'.

      Would really appreciate regular updates, even if they were short.

      Yup I’m also wondering too...

      It's official, I'm getting worried about how this projects going. I've backed a few over the years & when a creator goes silent it's never a good sign.

      When should PDF backers expect to receive their product? Are you waiting until you send the packages or is it as soon as you have the files ready?

      In October i was quite pleased to note that the KS delivery was in December. This i thot would be a good time to spend some time with my 6 y.o nephew to try and get into him chess again. Then it became January 2018. Then it was announced shipping by March! 3 days in and yet no updates since January and i begin to wonder. So if there aren't any new updates i might be tempted to take up the offer to email them directly and pull the plug. 3 months isn't that long really but on the other KS that i backed which were delayed i could afford to wait but this is one that i really wanted in my hands last December.

      Hi, I need to change my delivery address due to the delays. How do I do that ?

      Yep as per comment on the update - delays happen, extra content is awesome. Thanks for the update Kyle

      Only a small delay, I can live with that. Thanks.

    16. Kyle Sellers Collaborator on December 11

      Tim, Keith and Nicole, I apologize for not answering sooner. Unfortunately, due to hitting our stretch goal, we've added a significant amount of content... and have had a delay in getting some of our new art (and the new layouts that are dependent upon this art). Because of these delays, we confirmed this weekend that we won't have a printing window until January, so we won't make it in time for Christmas.

      Please read our latest update and feel free to email us and I'll see if there's anything we can do to accommodate you.

      Congratulations! I think this is a very worthy project. Great work!

      Michael, the first stretch goal (which we expect to make!) is for additional lessons and puzzles added to the books. We’re going to stream some lessons from this additional content tomorrow, so you’ll get a sneak peek!

    22. Lisa Galligan on October 14, 2017

      Michael I am sure they will get back to you shortly but the first stretch goal at 25k is additional content in the puzzle book.

      This looks soooo good and we are over 90% to that goal. I hope we make it!

      Jay, congratulations on progress so far, well-deserved. What is your first stretch goal?

    24. Martin Euredjian on September 26, 2017

      Absolutely thrilled to see Coach Jay on Kickstarter. We are fortunate enough to have him teaching at our local schools. He has been teaching my kids for the last twelve years or so, in fact, they have class with him tomorrow afternoon. This is probably the first non-tech project on Kickstarter I've supported in years. Chess can be great for kids if learned in the proper context. This is a fantastic method.

      Congrat's Coach Jay on a successful campaign!

      Whoops, I replied on my phone and it autocorrected, STEPHEN!

    26. Coach Jay Creator on September 15, 2017

      Stephanie, it absolutely does include them!

      Does the White through Black Belt DIGITAL PACK come with pdfs of the Parent/Coach’s Guide and
      Answer Key? If not is it possible to get them as add ons?

    28. Coach Jay Creator on September 15, 2017

      Wow, we just broke $15k. So humbled, but also excited for a whole bunch of kids who'll soon be learning to play chess!

      Thank you everyone so much!
