At least that's the general opinion of my son whenever a big truck swings by the house and drops off a pallet.
We took in the poker chips on Tuesday, Jan. 8, and I've been meaning to post an update since then. Huge apologies for the delay on that, but it's mostly the chips themselves' fault. I immediately started digging into the boxes and filling up the cases.
You can't quite tell from the photo, but only the bottom two inches of that pallet have chip boxes on them. The rest have empty aluminum cases. So I've spent the last four days sorting, stacking and filling up those cases, then loading them into my van and dropping them off at the warehouse.
Overall, we ordered 2100 white, 2100 red, 1900 blue, 1800 black, 1500 green and 1500 purple chips.
So what are the next couple of dates to watch out for?
Well, the dice hit another snag. While waiting for the Scarab Red to come in, the Scarab Blue Bloods sold out. It would take until June to get the Blue Bloods back in stock enough to fill our order, so instead we'll be using Scarab Royal Blue as an alternate color. We're expecting the dice to now be done in five weeks.
The cards themselves are the big shipment that I'm worrying about. We're on target to get them in mid-February. I'd love to have a more specific date than "mid," and I'll try to get one next week. This is because Obsidian will actually be in the USA in mid-February. We're both guests at Katsucon in National Harbor, MD. If we get the cards in before February 14, we'll let you know immediately here. They will then be on sale at the convention, with two GIANT caveats - we'll allow all backers that come to the show to pick up their orders on the spot, and we'll also bring special gifts for those backers.
However, this is all very much up in the air. So what we do know is that O and I are going to be at Katsucon, you should join us there, and all backer rewards are on schedule to be shipped out in February.
