Do you see the boat? They say it is close!

The mini-games, prints, and t-shirts are at the fulfillment company.  Just waiting for two extremely important pieces, the Game and KickStarter Promo Cards.

The shipping company said the Dragon Valley copies should be in the US and unloaded on January 23.  Then I get to find out if Customs inspections will delay it or not.  Oh the stress!

I won't have a good ETA on the games until the copies arrive at Game Salute. 

Please get the word out that Dragon Valley pre-orders can be made at

Take a moment to give a thumb to the box cover art on BGG!

The upcoming conventions I will be at are here.  Come say hi if you are there!:

Thanks for your patience!  When starting the project I knew board game publishing was time consuming and did everything I could to speed up the process.  I did things like having the art files and rule book (other than backer names) ready to go.  I am still amazed at the length of time but, we are getting so close.

      Did the boat arrive? Did customs confiscate the clearly-dangerous Dragon Valley cargo? [sarcasm]

      Too funny. I was just wondering last night how the boat was doing. Looks like there is still a (small) chance I'll have the game in my hands by Feb 10.
