Paperbacks, Book Signings and a Digital Surprise!

Posted by Vaughn Reynolds (Collaborator)


Hey everybody!

All the paperbacks are shipping across the world! Some folks across the U.S. have received theirs already! Miniature Market did a fantastic job packing and shipping them. Photos have already started popping up around social media!

Feel free to drop yours in the official For the Love of Board Games Group! And if you use #FLBG it'll be even easier for us to find and check out. :D

Book Signings!

Also, Erin is doing 2 paperback book signings this month in St. Louis! 

Her first book signing will be at Miniature Market this Saturday, December 15th from 10am to 2pm. To RSVP to this event and get all the information including the address, click here.

Her second book signing will be at Pieces: The St. Louis Board Game Bar & Cafe on Tuesday, December 18th from 4pm to 10pm. You can RSVP to the event and get all the information by clicking here.

Surprise, surprise... Digital backgrounds!

We've made Desktop and Mobile (Android & iPhone) backgrounds of the 9 illustrated designers! :D

You can download any and all of them here: DropBox

We hope you enjoy using these portraits for your phone and computer!

Lastly, and importantly, if you have ANY issues with your paperback or hardcover books, please message Erin directly through Kickstarter and we will get a replacement out to you! 

Until next time,

~ Erin & Vaughn

      Do we have an estimated ETA for international delivery of the softcovers?

      Thank you Erin, this is great news. I can't wait to read it. Thank you again for making this book project. It is now a historical document on the gaming annals of time.

      Hi, everyone. Thank you for bringing this up. The hardcovers are still being printed. We are estimating that they will start to ship out around Christmas.

      We wanted to get proof copies of the hardcovers, which have now been approved, before getting a big batch printed. We want to give you the highest quality hardcovers we can.

      Inquiring minds want to know. I was also going to ask about the Hardcovers.

      I am also wondering the same. ETA for hardcovers? Assumed it would be before Christmas from campaign. I hope this is still the case!!!

      What is the ETA for the hardcovers?
