Have a question?
@Geist – Wow, it looks like it got dropped in the mail but never arrived. We'll get to the bottom of it and get a new one on its way to you soon. Thanks for your patience!
I still haven't gotten mine either.
@Sascha – Sorry to hear that, it looks like your Blackbox survey never got filled out. I've resent the email that will contain a link to fill out your address. If you (or anyone else!) has any trouble, please drop Blackbox a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I didn‘t receive anything so far
@xav: Sorry about that! You can email email@example.com and they'll take care of you
I have not received the game yet. Who do I contact?
Amazing fun and gorgeous presentation, thanks so much to everyone involved!
Something nice for an expansion or such:
Blank Cards, as playing through, I could just imagine so many things to pitch about.
(Juicero, Raw Water, etc.)
@Eduard, I resent the survey, please message me if you haven't received it.
Hmm looks like I have never received a survey from you guys. Can you look into it? Thanks.
Amazing, glad you had fun and thanks for the kind feedback Luke!
Played the game the other day and was the best fun we've had in a long time, would definitely pay for an expansion pack if you guys make one
@trystan: Wow this made our day! That's a great note for a 2p variant—you've inspired us to cook one up. We'll let you know what we come up with.
If anyone has ideas for it, let us know! Our gut is that it could be fun to guess the order in which your partner rated each pitch…
Thanks for this!!! My wife and i suffer from chronic pain and the delivery of my Pitch Deck was completely unexpected and we played it for hours just her and I:) it kept our minds off of our pain and was the most amazing bonding experience, she’s really great at pitching! She sold S@& T&Ys to the Amish at Rumspringa, rofl! My question is this though @Creator, do you know of an amount of cards or perhaps different rules where just two people can play?
Recieved mine last week, tried it on Saturday as a group of 3. We kinda went round robin until one of us ran out of funds lol… then we played the proper way once through.
Got mine in Toronto on Thursday. Box and components look great.
@Fred Benenson: What set her off initially was pitching for The Catholic Church. I proposed a new Catholic Church, with the Pope replaced by My Junk. Apparently she started picturing her boyfriend's junk wearing a little pope hat.
She was still giggling about that when we started the next round ended up pitching for the next ISIS. I said, "These new kids don't know what they're doing, don't have enough flair, what we need for a new ISIS is to go back to some of the old masters", and played German. She lost the ability to breathe for a bit :)
Quick followup for EVERYONE with damaged goods (not the metaphysical kind, the Pitch Deck kind): please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will get you a new unit on its way.
@Robin! That's what we like to hear. Can you share the card combo with us? We're SO curious to hear what is resonating with folks the best.
@Nick / @Aaron So sorry to hear about these – we're going to be speaking with our manufacturer soon and come up with a plan to help out backers with damaged contents. You'd think this kind of thing would be a solved problem by now!
Managed to get a game last night, and initial impressions are that it's an absolute blast. One lady in the group was laughing so hard at one point she had to leave the room to calm down.
Mine arrived in Australia today! Box and insert all fine. Art is amazing.
Although, I think I have a production issue in mine. :(
5 of the 8 'Uniformity' funding tiles are damaged along their right-hand edge in a way that if you know where to look, it is totally possible to determine the funding level.
What's the best way to follow up on this? Thanks!
Canadian here, in Kitchener, just got mine today! Excited to look through it, although my box was damaged in transit :(
Was caught by total surprise when my parcel arrived today! I haven't had the chance to go through the cards individually yet but the investment tiles look nice and hefty. From a cursory glance, the cards are thinner than I'd like/expected--nice colours, though!
@Gersh – sent you a message re: your backer survey. Please fill it out and your copy will be on its way.
@Matthew and Patrice in Canada – unfortunately we are in the same boat as well, our international shippers don't have tracking numbers. My guess is that since it's making its way from the UK during the holidays it's taking a little more time than backers in Europe and Asia.
So, is there a way to get actual tracking information? What's being given is just a "on transit" icon. It's cute but it offers no details.
I'm in Canada, by the way.
i haven't gotten mine here n pittsburgh
Has anyone from Canada got the game yet? I'm still waiting for mine.
I hope there are expansions. This game is great.
Received it in Singapore today but oh my god this box is 4 times the size of what I expected
Just got my copy here in the UK, and it all looks great apart from the Unicode issue (which doesn't really have much impact) and the unnecessarily large box. Sorry, but that's one of my bugbears, it'll be going straight in the recycling to be replaced with something that doesn't take up 3 times the shelf space it actually needs.
Looking forward to introducing it to my weekly gaming night next week when we get together after the Christmas break.
Ahhhhhh thanks so much for the kind words everybody!!!! Really glad we were able to get a decent chunk delivered around the holiday.
Also: all international orders are out as of Dec 22!!
For anyone with delivery or tray issues, (1) ugh sorry that sucks, and (2) shoot an email to email@example.com and they get info/replacements to you! Might be a tad slower than usual with the break, but they’ll get those turned around.
I still haven’t received my tracking information and I’m in the US. I’ve also sent an e-mail and haven’t gotten a response about things. I was hoping I would get my copy before Christmas like a lot of other people have. I was looking forward to a new game to play with family and friends this holiday season. Just wish I could get a response about things.
Any idea how many cards are affected by the error [?] - be good to know how many
Arrived a couple of days ago. A long time coming, but definitely looks worth the wait. Wonderful quality. Can't wait to play! Thanks guys!
I received my copy 2 days ago but it appears to be damaged, the entire plastic shell inside is smashed. I have not yet taken a closer look at the cards to make sure they are alright.
I received my copy of the game and it looks AMAZING! Super excited to play it with some friends. I'm hoping to be able to setup a game night for NYE. Thank you for all of your hard work. I look forward to your next project. You have a backer for whatever you do for sure.
My copy came today. Very happy with the way everything looks. The Unicode issue doesn’t look like it will really affect the game. I’m really psyched for an opportunity to try it out.
Got mine today. Much bigger box than I expected, but I'm looking forward to playing!
Thanks Brandon! Yes, us too re: those cards. We're going to check with our printer in 2018 to see what is feasible. In the meantime, know that your edition with the Äô's is now a Certified Limited Edition copy because we sure as heck are going to fix that if we ever do another run!
Awesome quality, there's something really satisfying about the smooth edges on the investment tiles, I'm so used to the little bit like tears from punchboard pieces. A pleasant surprise.
I'll love you forever if you give us a reasonable cost method of replacing those erroneous cards. You know, once everything settles down.
@Martin Our non-US inventory has been successfully unloaded at the Blackbox warehouse in the UK and they will begin shipping soon. Once we have confirmation on those dates we'll send an update to backers more precise dates. Thanks for your patience!
So, what's going on with the outside-US shipping?
@Luis: thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you appreciate it. Please tell us what you think once you get the chance to play.
Just received my copy today! Wow! I'm really impressed by the quality of this game. Looks fantastic and I can't wait to play it.
Mike! Yep - of course of all people who make this mistake it's the guy who wrote a book in emoji and spent a year dealing with Unicode errors in 2009... Hope you get a chance to play the game with friends soon!
Was just coming to note the Unicode issue as well. Not a big deal, but definitely noticeable on those cards. Game looks great though.
Andrew! Aw – shucks those are some unicode errors introduced by the ole curly quote Unicode problem:
We're super bummed we didn't catch them until now. Sorry about that, hope you still enjoy the game – Alex and I will think on whether we can get these fixed :)
Got my copy today!
There does seem to be some exciting typos that slipped through, (Ask Jeeves, Roomba, La Croix, Farmers Only from the Company Cards so far) but doesn't really affect playability (much once you decipher them).
@Daragh – it looks like the EXPRESS ATHENS just made it through the strait of Gibraltar and is on its way to the GB with an ETA of December 6th.
@Nguyen – If you've filled out your Blackbox survey you'll be getting a shipping notification once it sends out.
Any further update for those of us in the UK?
