My copy arrived yesterday in Brazil. I'm looking forward to playing the game this weekend.
Happy day! My copy just arrived at the office, up here in Canada.
Got mine today! Superb build quality, was worth the wait! Ludofact knows how to print games!
Glad I backed this great little game! Thanks!
I figure that allowing for the fourth dimension allows people to "hack" the game if they want for alternative placements. Like putting the Hawaii location as the bottom row. :)
Okay, thanks for the info.
Actually, in the base game there are 45 stamp tokens, so indeed I have more than enough stamps, because Atlantis is stamped with the prisoners.
I have another question, regarding the central Hawaii Century Club tile action. It states that, should I move there using the biplane during my turn, I get an additional movement up, down, left or right. Now, the Hawaii Century Club is supposed to be placed on top of the adventure locations.
Does this mean that bonus movement only allows me to go to the left and right Century Club tiles, as well as the tile underneath the central tile? What is the purpose of having a bonus upwards movement there?
Yeah, I don't think that "5 and 5" message ever got back to the guy laying out the boards (me). I don't think it creates much trouble at all, tho, there should be a surprlus of stamp tokens in the base game.
Consider the extra lundies to be "insurance" against losing a piece or two. :)
So, I have already played a few games of Race to Adventure! and wanted to try out the Hollow Earth / Dinocalypse now expansions. So, I downloaded the rules and checked the contents when putting them in the box.
There's one point where I'm confused: the Dinocalypse Now expansion rules mention that there's 5 Lundy Island flag tokens and 5 additional stamp tokens, but I can see 10 Lundy Island flag tokens. There are, however 3 extra flag tokens on the two Hollow Earth expansion cardboards...
Are these 5 extra stamp tokens needed? What should I do with the 5 extra Lundy Island flags?
Anyway, the game is quite fun, and perfect to play during our lunchtime breaks at work.
Well, the backer orders are part of a 5,000-unit printing of the games, right? And if the lack of labeling could have caused problems for us with customs, it'd affect all the games coming in -- research suggested it wouldn't, so we were clear for getting the delayed shipment moving again with our sticker-it-in-the-states strategy. The actual stickering process should run really fast, once the games make it here.
Okay I have a question. Is that sticker with the address really needed for the reward games? I mean this isn't a preorder. So it seams like it shouldn't apply. And I'm only asking cause I don't want you out any additional funds I don't care about the extra time I'm patient. That being said another option could be to just put the sticker in the box for us backers to apply when we unwrap the game ourselves. Just ideas cause I have no clue about all the legal ramifications. Whatever happens I'll be happy when it gets here.
Yes! You, too, can wave over at customs while the games sit there... and sit there... :)
March 13! Happy birthday to me!
Shouldn't take long to recieve my copy once they get sent out, live in Indianapolis, IN, so it's not too far away from Fort Wayne. Can hardly wait.
Oops, we were being too generous :oP
Thanks once again!
Yup, tower movement requires the appropriate item. :)
Thank you for including baggies! We had a couple of games over the weekend and it was ridiculously easy to pick up, even for my tipsy mother! The only question we had was do you need to have transport to travel up and down the tower?
Yup. There has to be an on-package way to locate/contact the manufacturer by mail, or something.
Really? A full mailing address? That's enough to make it fail testing. That's just stupid regulation.
Please drop by here and link us up when you do! :)
Well, mine arrived here in the UK last week - perfect timing as I needed a last-minute extra birthday present for my wife! First outing will be Friday this week. Expect bloggage at blog.filesandrecords.com with photos of the unboxing, setup, game play and victor.
Have to say that when it arrives, you've not wasted a cubic inch in that box! It's so packed the Hollow Earth expansion wouldn't fit in unless I started removing stuff from the cardboard mounts.
Can't wait to play!
Can't promise anything there, Joshua. Reality may dictate actual package arrivals in the April range.
It's going to be a race. I'm going on vacation the last week in March, and I'd love to be able to bring this along. Here's hoping for early-late March ;-).
I've reviewed some of the comments over there. Seems like they didn't do the crucial kibosh with their planning: "You don't get to sell this to anyone until all these orders are shipped." -- That's how we tend to specify things with Alliance handling our ship-outs. It seems... well, a little baffling, that the publisher allowed a situation where the games could be sold to be put into stores prior to having all the kickstarter commitments filled.
Alliance was only shipping about 200 units/day for Tammany Hall, which was a bit slow since there were about 2500 backers.
Alliance tends to ship our stuff within a matter of days. If we were shipping it ourselves, the shipping timeframe would be measured in months.
I know nothing about Tammany Hall.
I'm glad that things are getting sorted out, but I'm disappointed to hear that you're using Alliance for distribution given the snail's pace at which they've been shipping out Tammany Hall.
I don't know Panda. I do know LudoFact. So there's that. ;)
Given LudoFact's reputation, this is pretty disappointing. What do they bring to the table now that someone like Panda doesn't at a significant discount?
I think I may need to drive down to the harbor on the 13th and wave at all the incoming ships. One of them has to be full of happy adventure games! :)
Thanks for the update Fred, always good to hear about what's going on. Even if the news isn't so good, we at least know why. :)
