Hello Java lovers,

We have a short update for all of you today, but it's a good one - according to recent news from Game Salute, all backer levels of VivaJava have been processed, packaged and were set for pickup by FedEx on their docks in New Hampshire as of yesterday afternoon. I'm not sure if they are sending out shipping confirmations or not, but FedEx should have them in hand and begin shipping and delivery next week. We may have a handful of orders still awaiting shipping changes or confirmations, but the majority of your games should be headed your way very, very soon!

We have received quite a few shipping updates in the past few days and hopefully the Game Salute warehouse has checked them and changed them before sending them out. Again, if any of you have shipping address changes or updates, please send them both to us at DHMG and to the Game Salute warehouse -

If you have the time and wherewithal, please check in here with comments for confirmation of the arrival of your VivaJava packages as you get them over the next few days. We would like to make sure that all those wonderful caffeinated packages are being received - and we're sure that many of you would like to check on those, as well!

If you've ordered extra Brewple sets or Coffee-to-Go packages, bear in mind that we are still processing and sending those extra bits here from DHMG HQ as soon as we can. Cherilyn has been working her fingers to the bone trying to get those finished up for you as soon as possible, so please bear with us. Most of you should receive your VivaJava games ahead of the extra Brewple packages.

We're excited that many of you will have VivaJava in your hands soon. Thanks again for the wonderful support and patience!

All the best,
Cherilyn & Chris

      Just received my Coffee-to-go package (Brazil), guys, nice job!

      Received mine last week (Thursday; I'm in Pennsylvania). Stupid Fed Ex left the package on the doorstep in a driving rainstorm, but fortunately the caffeinated goodness inside stayed dry. I unpacked the game, punched out and sorted all of the beautiful components and read through the rules. I'm hoping to get it to the table within the next couple of weeks. The game looks great and sounds really fun. I can't wait to play!

      Yay! I received my game today in Atlanta.

    5. ParkinT on October 17, 2012

      I can't believe it is finally here!!
      [I was told] my game arrived today (Florida).

      Unfortunately, I am traveling (Virginia) to be with my mother who will undergo some heart surgery. So, I will not see the game until I get back next week. :(

    6. Kevin E. Schlabach on October 17, 2012

      Mine arrived yesterday and got unpacked today!

    7. Neville Fogarty on October 16, 2012

      Mine came today here in Lexington, KY! Looking forward to playing! :)

      *sniff sniff sniff* What's that I smell? Why it's a freshly brewed board game right on my porch! Can't wait to play it! :)

    9. Brandon Carter on October 16, 2012

      Got mine today in the Chicago suburbs (no shipping confirmation, FWIW). The game looks great!

    10. Philip Fulcher on October 16, 2012

      Arrived here in central PA today. Looks great!
      @Sean I did not receive any shipping confirmation or tracking, so Hopefully yours will be there soon!

    11. Bill Grant III on October 16, 2012

      I'm also curious about this. I emailed an address change to Chris and Game Salute but I can still get to the old address if I need to. Would be good to hear back either to my email or just to know a tracking email will be sent so I know which address to look for it.

    12. Sean on October 16, 2012

      For those that received it/DHMG, are they using tracking? I have yet to receive any email about shipping, I'd like to know if I should just be hanging tight, or getting excited that it might appear soon :-).

    13. Craig Dapiran on October 16, 2012

      It has arrived! Very excited to try it in the near future.

      Got it today! Gonna bust it out later and teach myself how to play so I can explain it to my wife! ;) Now where are those brewples? They need to stop lolly-gagging in the mail and get to work!

      Got my game, and pretty excited! The components are of great quality. Very strong first impression :-).

    16. Kelley Callery on October 16, 2012

      Played last night, a five player game. Everyone really enjoyed it and it did not take long to get the hang of the game play. Game ended with me hitting the 21 mark first, and had enough bonus points to keep the lead by one point. Really enjoyable game. Can't wait to play it again.

    17. Dice Hate Me Games 19-time creator on October 15, 2012

      Yay, copies in the wild! Kelley, I hope you have a great time playing tonight. We're nervous, but excited! Let us know what you think.

      We're working on a basic video tutorial now for a quick overview for those who have yet to play. Stay tuned!

      My game came today (CT). Everything looks amazing! Thank you all for your hard work.

    20. Kelley Callery on October 15, 2012

      Just got mine delivered today, and what perfect timing as I have a group of gaming friends coming over tonight... this will be our first game of the night!
