      Thanks Darren for getting that all straightened out for me.
      I'm glad we were able to get this squared away, and I appreciate the extra effort you took in unraveling the mystery.

      I sent a message through the "Contact Me" button on this site. I also have not received my deck and dice. I will resend a message just in case. Thank you for your time.

    4. Steven Ivan Walk on

      Still waiting. All subsequent Kickstarter, Gmail, and Facebook emails have been read, but garnered no response.

      As I suspect this entire matter could have been cleared up easily had he actually responded to communication. Now I need to get Pay Pal involved, which will most likely affect Darren's ability to use them moving forward.

    5. Steven Ivan Walk on

      Still. Waiting. No response to emails.

      STILL waiting on the uncut sheet. I know your probably busy with the convention circuit Darrin. USPS says they got notification, but its not actually ever been dropped off.

      I got my package (Germany) a while ago and after an additional 45€ in import fees I finally have it.

      Two downsides: The Joker is crumbled (but not that bad) and the chip box is broken (still working but the silver color is ripped in some places).

      But still nice though. Now I have enough cards to give some away as gifts.

    8. Farnaby on

      I've left a message under the last update and also sent you an email at the contact me link on the right.
      I still haven't received my decks, let alone got a message that they were sent.

      Please get back to me and tell me the current status.


    9. Steven Ivan Walk on

      Still havent gotten my uncut sheet .. I'll try your gmail.

    10. Clara Bush on

      Got the cards today in Brisbane =) Cards and Dice are great. A bit sad though that my Joker giant card game through all crushed and bashed and looking pretty worse for wear. The whole package was screwed up in a ball when I got it =(

      Just received my double trifecta in Adelaide. The cards look and feel great, very pleased! At least I've got something to play with while waiting for 3v3 now :-)

      Got my trifecta with dice! It looks amazing - love the 13 card! And i'm one of the lucky ones whose giant joker came thru in perfect shape - all in all well worth the wait!

    13. James Williams on

      Yay! My decks dice and chips finally arrived.

    14. Jen the Viking

      Just got mine yesterday. And like everyone else, nicely done. I like the feel of the cards.

    15. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      Right now, there's only three types of backers that haven't gotten their decks yet: Some of those that ordered 300 chips or more, those that got their surveys in after March 23, and those that had small shipping errors on them.
      For those getting 300 chips or more, they're all labeled and loaded for a run to the post office tomorrow. I'll also be packing all the lates and errors tonight, and later this week we'll have the uncut sheets and prints on the move.

    16. David Garrison on

      Received my cards and they're great. Very high quality. I especially like the 13 card in each deck. Nice touch. Dice are great too.

    17. Nekator

      got mine last week, very nicely done! Thank you.

      Martin Appleton on

      My cards just arrived and look great - but the large sized card didn't survive the journey so well and has a rip through one side. It's a shame it wasn't wrapped with some cardboard (or similar) to protect it in the envelope. Never mind - still looks good :-)

      Hi Darren. Wondering why I have not received confirmation of shipment for my trifecta with dice?

      Dave Drouin on

      Received my decks today. Super happy with it. A big thumbs up for Dern's managing skills and a big toe up for O's artistic talent. Everything is better than expected, you guys make a great team.

    28. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      Heyo everybody! I'm absolutely ecstatic to find out that I was a bit too crazy perfectionist on the silver backs, everyone seems to be enjoying those. Also, on the packaging - I'm really sorry about that, there was a material change on one of the envelopes that ordered. Initially, they were made of a stiffer, tighter material. We're always running into problems with the prints, and may need to retire them as stretch rewards from future campaigns.

    29. Eagle Archambeault

      Yay! My paclage arrived and the cards, dice and chips look fabulous! I'll echo the others here and mention the card print was bent all out of shape due to the shipping. Since everything was free floating in the bubble bag instead of in something stiffer, it was likely to damage. Not a huge deal, but worth mentioning for future shipments to people

    30. Andy The Sane on

      Well, the zombie invasion of the UK has started!

      Got my decks this morning. I must admit, I opened the silver backs with a little trepidation after what Darren had said in the earlier update but there was no need to worry! The backs are all fine - Darren must have superhuman eyes as I can't see any variations on the silver... maybe that laser eye treatment wasn't worth the money I paid...

      Cards look and feel fantastic in the hand and O's artwork is phenomenal (as usual!)

      Can't wait to bust this deck out soon :)

      International packaging was good - oversized card print was a bit bent but nothing that couldn't be flattened out with a heavy book.

      Thanks Darren and Obsidian :)

    31. Ed Mayhall on

      My decks and dice arrived today. Great job! The dice are going to go great in my Zombies!!! game.

    32. Chris on

      All three decks arrived. Wonderful! They really are beautiful.

      Once constructive comment... shipping on the cards was fine, but the Joker card was pretty ruined. I know that is not the point of this effort... it is the cards, but still. Perhaps a cardboard stiffener?

    33. Flynn Leek on

      Got mine today! They probably arrived earlier, but I'm crap at checking my mail.

      Red & Black decks, with a King of Spades print! yay!

      I am amused by the Jokers. One would have to know O and Dern to get the joke, but I giggled muchly.
      Also notable: The two Extra cards - a double-backed card (good for magic tricks) and a 13 of Brains.

      I am quite pleased. The cards feel fantastic and shuffle well.

    34. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      @Benjamin anything with dice or chips in it is wave 3 (stuff I'm working on tonight). Notices should start going out in the next 24 hours, so long as I don't collapse.

    35. B3N-F172G on

      THE DOUBLE BOOT AND DICE are green decks right? I haven't received any tracking info yet... (should I have?)

    36. Sam Byrd on

      My pledge was part of the "FIRST SHUFFLE" One deck.
      I assume it is just the basic card back.
      Hopefully I'll see some change in the tracking soon...

    37. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      I got back in from the WonderCon trip late last night. I had to do a few webcomic things and take care of some other kickstarters, and I'm back to hitting the envelop packing now.

    38. Andreas Ziegler on

      Got mine today. Simply beautiful!

    39. KLAWLOR on

      @sam does your order include silver backs because Darren said they had some problems with the silver decks and we need to wait a bit longer so they can be fixed.

    40. Sam Byrd on

      I've had my tracking information since Mar 26th, but it hasn't progressed past "Electronic Notification".

    41. Colt Nay on

      Just got my cards today! They are great!

    42. Andy The Sane on

      Whoop! just got email confirmation of postage :)

      Darren, does this mean it's actually been posted, or just that you've printed the postage from

    43. Evil Mushroom Games on

      Looking forward to this set to be ready. One Trifecta with chips and dice: get those bad boys in the post . (UK) England

    44. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      @Bryce yes, the first deck is by default a green deck. Don't forget to paypal over the extra for the red deck.

    45. Bryce on

      So if I backed the " DECK AND DICE" option and also submitted to order one red deck. Will I get one green deck (from backing) and a red deck (as an extra)?

      Cheers. Cant wait to play with these!

    46. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      @Alexis since the add-ons are a special mea culpa deal, I'm totally OK not adding extra shipping charges to this offer. So it's just 12/8/8/5 per silver/red/green/dice.

    47. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      @Kevin yeah, it looks like all UK backers are just "UK." I'll let Kickstarter know that this messes things up for those of us using a certain postage program.

      Alexis Darbon on

      I'd like to add 5 decks and three dice sets to my trifecta pledge (some friends manifested themselves a little bit late last time).

      Since I live in France, how much do I have to add to the shipping costs?

    49. KLAWLOR on

      When i fill in the survey it lets me select wales as an option but then it changes it to UK on the next page when i have to confirm my address.

    50. Darren J. Gendron 6-time creator on

      @jennifer you'll need a paypal account. Then sign in, choose to send money, and send it to (in this case, $8)
