24 Hours Left for Address Corrections, Cards Charging this Weekend, and other info

So as not to bury the lede: If you need to correct your address in BackerKit you've got about 24 hours to do so. I'll be moving all responses that are complete over to "ready to ship" status and charging cards where necessary this weekend.

As mentioned before, the BackerKit is found at https://the-dresden-files-cooperative-card-game.backerkit.com/ and if you have trouble getting in there to make your corrections you should waste no time leaving me a private message here on Kickstarter so I can get that sorted for you.

Overall status is as follows:

  • USA's shipment is due at our shipping warehouse (Alliance Games Distributors) by the beginning of February, or just past it. So we'll be trying to get as many of those packages out in February as we can.
  • Canada's shippables will be sourced out of the USA's, so we'll have a window between the arrival in the USA and getting the items up North to Starlit Citadel to get shipped out. I'm hopeful this can all happen within a timeframe that makes it work for our March shipping commitment.
  • Australia's shipment has arrived at their port in Sydney but it may take a few weeks to percolate through Customs and get to our shipping partners at Aetherworks. While that's happening I'll be working on getting any non-DFCO add-on items shipped over to them so that the shipments Down Under can commence by our March commitment at the latest.
  • UK's shipment (which serves most other international locations for us) is expected to arrive at port around the end of the month, so it may take much of February to percolate through customs and make it to our shipping partners at GamesQuest. During that timeframe I'll be working on getting any non-DFCO add-on items shipped over to them as well. If that happens to get us an early March commencement for shipping I'll be delighted; could be a little later into March depending on how the variables sort out.

So that's where we're at! Thanks as always for your support. :)

Now, I must go back to the wilds of tax preparation and year-end financials! Awayyyy!

      In previous KS (and generally getting stuff shipped over to the UK), I've found that UK customs has generally taken about a week to let stuff through (although it could vary depending on how it comes in and where - dropping into London isn't necessarily the same as, say, Folkestone).

      Yaaaaaaay!

      That is all.

      As mentioned, the UK will cover other countries, so that status = their status.

      Any news about international shipping to other countries besides Canada, uk and Australia?

      Thanks for the reply Fred Hicks / Evil Hat Production. Australian Customs is usually pretty quick from my experience with them usually about a week turn around (we let anything in :P ) but yes it could take longer if there is some sort of hold up. And Aetherworks are very prompt as well I have dealt with them many time. I guess we backers as usual are just super excited and keen to get our hands on this games as soon as possible and once again delve into the world of Harry Dresden.

      No, what it sounds like is that Australia is gonna have to clear customs first before anything happens at all.

      Please folks — assume the best here, not the worst. I strive for the best.

      @Grant, Unfortunately that's what is sounds like, but hopefully he just means DFCO only will ship as soon as they can and the Non-DFCO add-ons will ship as soon as they have all the parts.

      Please tell me that you're not holding back pledges with zero non-DFCO add-ons from delivery in Australia, because that would be ridiculous.
