Mountaineers Pre-Production Copy! - Project Update 28 Sep 2018
I’m excited to finally have an update that has some more positive news in it: We just received our pre-production print copy from the manufacturer! And it is looking pretty sharp! Right now, we (aka my poor wife) are scrutinizing every single piece, card, and component, looking for anything that needs fixed, changed, or corrected.
There are a few things that will need adjusted, but overall, it is looking great. It is an incredible feeling, after 3 years of prototyping, to finally have a premium feeling copy in our hands! The wood pieces and the miniatures are especially great, I love how they look! And the box is looking pretty legit too!
Here is a video of me unboxing the pre-production copy and going through it. I’m sorry about the camera angle- I was livestreaming on another camera on the same time, so if you wonder why I’m not speaking straight to you the whole time, that’s why.
In other news:
Our timelines are still delivery around January, although LongPack is warning me that things might get delayed another few weeks, due to them messing up the wooden carabiners (which still need a little work). And apparently, we aren’t the only people getting delayed. I’ve seen some other publishers complaining about this in the forums.
Spiel’18 is only 1 month away! And I need to get ready! We will be in Hall 5, Booth 111 (5H111) and will have the pre-production copy of Mountaineers, our display stands for sale, and some other games we are testing, like Kartoffelkrieg and Candy Cane Wars. We plan on having daily prize drawings, as well as promo cards and other fun stuff to give away. Hope to see you there!
If you are wondering about changing your address, please follow the instructions in this link and login into your pledge on CrowdOx to update your shipping address. I still haven’t locked the shipping, so you are good for a few months.
Our mini mountaineer is doing well, getting strong and cute, and already over 1 month old. Crazy how time flies! And my job as a venture catalyst is going well. It’s been really fulfilling, going around several counties in Oregon and helping entrepreneurs and startups connect to resources. Just today I met with someone who has an awesome company dealing in blockchain and cryptocurrencies!
Anyways, thanks again for your support of this project. I really do hope to have an awesome product for you guys, and hope the wait will be worth it. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out in the comments, and I’ll answer as best I can.
Also, who’s looking forward to winter mountain sports? I want to do some back country snowboarding this year!
Keeping it real,
What do you guys think of the linen finish on the cardboard? Comment below!
