      I've checked through my BGG inbox and there's nothing waiting for approval at the moment. I got the rules uploaded and will try to get the summary sheet uploaded this weekend.

      Hi Gareth,
      Any news about my missed orange set of employee discs???

      Justin Smith on February 6

      BGG refused to let me upload the quick set-up guide because Gareth never replied to my request for permission.

    4. Adam Ash on February 2

      Finally have the rules after my mess up, but Holy hell, these are some seriously bad rule. Nothing is clearly labeled, it took me forever to figure how to identify a specialist, these color choices are awful. I'm going to try and figure this game out, but I honestly hope Gareth re-writes these rules and just post them to bgg.

      This will never happen though as Gareth seems to forget that he even made a board game. I really really really want to like this game but my god it's difficult at this point......

      Still not received the game. No response to emails - check spam folder?

      I didn't get anything, but I wouldn't if we're not following each other. Maybe send a message on BGG? I'm the same user name as my Twitter.

    7. Adam Ash on January 24

      @Justin: well Gareth uploaded the rules despite that I asked for the setup too. I tweeted at you earlier too. Well I guess I'll just have to wait longer to play...

      It looks like BGG has a Ddos attack last week, so they're catching up. I need permission from Gareth to get the quick set-up guide uploaded.

      I uploaded the images to BGG, but they aren't showing on uploads. If you have Twitter you can send a message to @Onyersix and I'll be able to tweet it to you.

    10. Adam Ash on January 20

      @Gareth - Thanks for posting the rules but is the game set up that is post from 3 years ago the same as the current game set up?

    11. Adam Ash on January 15

      @Justin Smith - Board Game MVP of the year right here! You are awesome, thank you so much!

      I'm going to be out tomorrow, but I'll get it uploaded to BGG on Wednesday.

    13. Adam Ash on January 15

      @Justin Smith- You would be such an amazing person if you wouldn't mind doing that. Or even if you just posted it as a DL file on BGG. I'm going to figure out if there is a way to DM you here on KS and we can work it out there, Thanks!

      Justin Smith on January 14

      @Adam Ash - I can scan and email you the Set Up sheet if you'd like?

    15. Adam Ash on January 13

      @DougG: Yeah same here. I posted in the comments a week ago, I private messaged him through KS, I even sent him a message over skype (yes, I am sure this is his account) in an attempt to get a digital copy of the rules and the set up as I lost my setup sheet. We will see where this goes....

    16. DougG-in-MI on January 13

      still no response from Gareth to my emails or my KS messages.

      I got an email form the shipper saying they got my email for the correct address. They are waiting to hear from the creator on if I need to pay additional shipping for them to resend it or if the creator will pay for shipping.
      As I have emailed and messaged them multiple times I hope they don’t expect me to pay for shipping again.

    18. Adam Ash on January 7

      Hey so I seemed to have missed placed my "Game Set-up" rule sheet (I'm stupid and miss placed it over the holiday as I had planned on reading it but never got around to doing it). Does anyone know if the files on BGG are the most current and up-to-date version of the rules and the set up? I need to find a digital copy ASAP.

    19. DougG-in-MI on January 6

      No game yet and I still haven't had a response to my emails or KS messages.

      Hi. I've received my game and seem to have everything except the turn marker. Could I get a replacement shipped out?

    21. DougG-in-MI on December 29

      I haven't heard anything back yet.

      I got an email from Gamesquest. They didn’t get the updated address and are going to resend mine after the new year. I’m looking forward to finally playing it.

    23. DougG-in-MI on December 26

      Still haven't received the game. Just sent another email to Gareth. My survey has my correct address so I assume the game was lost en route.

      Need to get some review copies sent out. Would like to see some kind of buzz on YouTube that isn't two years old.

      Thank you, Gareth. It's greatly appreciated!

      Thanks for letting us know Aaron. We’ll get you sorted out.

      I sent an email but I haven't received my copy yet in the United States. Address is correct too and it would not have been stolen from where I live. Hoping to hear back soon.

    31. Gareth Newton-Williams 2-time creator on December 11

      Hi folks,
      Everyone, worldwide, should now have their copies of Periorbis. If you do not have your game(s) or if you have components missing from your set, Please send me a message through KickStarter or via email to gareth@periheliongames.com.

    32. DougG-in-MI on December 6

      The game has arrived! It is like a prophecy being fulfilled! :)

      Anyway... this was the oldest game waiting on my Kickstarter list. Very satisfying to check it off.
      Looking forward to playing the game!

      @Ross Thanks for the info, I haven't heard back from them yet. I received a shipping notification for Gloomhaven two days ago also, I bet I'll get the two games on the same day and won't know what do do with myself haha.

    47. Gareth Newton-Williams 2-time creator on November 9, 2017

      @Mariano José Barrio Fuentes: This is enough.

      Hi, I just received the game, all correct but it is missed the orange set of employee discs. Should I send an email to "contact@GamesQuest.co.uk or it is enough with this comment??
