      @Dennis - Please remember that Kickstarter is not a store. Delays can and will happen and we just need to have faith in the people doing the project that they will deliver in the end. Check out the last update (#17) for a look at recent progress.

      Doing my best every day to make it happen, Dennis. Thanks for your support.

      I don't want a refund. I just want the game for my daughter. Six months late. Just make it happen.

    4. Ruwen Liu Collaborator 7 days ago

      whoops. I did the standard writing 2017 instead of 2018 at the beginning of the year.

    5. Ruwen Liu Collaborator 7 days ago

      Sorry for the delays, Dennis.

      We are doing exactly what we have written: we are waiting on our manufacturer for the last pieces of cake duel: the bags (well, and now the tokens).

      To clarify the comment thread: the initial intent is to showcase the bag and the tokens in our last update before sending everything off: the bag would come right after the tokens, and we'd have a nice update to send before the holidays.

      The 2 things we did not anticipate:
      1) The tokens that came would be completely incorrect.
      2) It's 01/14/17 and we are still waiting for the bag.

      We don't make updates about this stuff, because, well, the goal of our updates is not to throw our manufacturers under the bus, and it will certainly sound like that if we started writing about it. (We have learned quite a lot along the way)

      To be honest, I'm a boardgame addict; I'm not a great PR person. Forgive me if the opinions expressed here seem overly optimistic: it's only because I just really want to meet Sheepie soon, not because I am trying to lie.

      Again, we apologize for the delays. I'm right here monitoring this thread every day, so please feel free to ask me any questions concerning production.

      Thanks for your patience. I really appreciate it.

      Gee, we want to start production right away. We only need bags. Bags are great. Oops, we lied again. WTF is going on? How about am honest to goodness truthful update? Remember, we are your backers (investors). You owe your existence to us & we are owed the truth.

    7. Sizigi Studios Creator on January 9

      @Night1505, unfortunately, no update yet. There apparently was another problem with the plastics token molds which we thought was more or less a done deal.

      On the bright side, the new samples for the bags were shipped this week so we'll post those up once we receive them.

      Thanks so much for your patience!

      I'm normally faster with these: Sorry! we've been working ourselves to the bone at Gen Con 17 (can you say 14 hours of non-stop smiling for 4 days?). I see that things have gotten a bit messy while I was gone ;)

      Hello Curtis. We’re sorry that you are leaving the campaign. We will refund you your 1 dollar.

      As I've said in that reply, and every reply: I am aware that our backers would like a full art PnP. I did not give it because I use these square sheep with my own terrible inkjet printer, and they look great to me. I might do the full art pnp after things settle down, since people have been asking.

      Currently, we're working at max capacity to get real Sheepies made. I respect and value the time and money that our backers have put in us, and I'm doing my best every day to make sure that Cake Duel will be the best damn 20 dollars they've ever spent. The PnP is on my mind, just not at the top of the list at the moment.

      As for everyone else: Thanks for being patient with us. Sorry for the delays. Let’s continue the grand Sheepie adventure together! :D

      @Roy P - This is their response:

      "Honestly, we weren't planning to give the full art version pnp when we started the campaign.

      For now, we're putting all our efforts to getting the real game out for manufacturing. Since there's been a lot of interest, we might do a full art pnp once things wind down."

      It is also fully possible they are just waiting until the games ship to send out the full print and play?

      @Curtis - I totally must agree with your very valid points. Seems like all of the disappointment comes from a lack of descriptive information, and I agree that you were not being unreasonable to assume an actual card art PnP. Until your comment, that is what I had assumed as well. The only thing I was trying to point out is that, on second look only, I didn't see any specifics listed, meaning they did technically have room to put forth what they did. But, if I were in your shoes, I wouldn't actually be happy about it either, so I'm actually very understanding of your disappointment. :(

      @Night1505 - My point was, is that although they don't say "full art", they say "THE print-and-play version of Cake Duel". That's kind of what I was complaining about; they don't specify the level of quality of this PnP version is, but I assumed it would have at least been complete (I would have even been happy with a low quality, low res version, but they only have squares instead of sheep? wtf?). Maybe this is also an assumption, but I figure most people would also assume the same as me if given the lack of detail. I shouldn't have to message all creators separately just to understand their rewards.

      To use your logic, I didn't see anywhere that the PnP was to be a "prototype" or otherwise "Incomplete" version either, nor did they say it was going to be "low quality" or "low res". Do you think we should have to ask them whether their physical copies would have full art because we can't assume they would ship a complete version? Would you be happy if your copy came printed with the art in the PnP just because they didn't technically say it would have the full art?

      Anyone is free to disagree, but I personally believe it is reasonable to assume that any reward offered should be a complete version of whatever product they are offering unless otherwise specified, which they hadn't. I'm just posting my 2 cents in so that my voice can be heard, and to see if I'm the only one who feels this way.
