Hey guys, new deck drops on February 29th 2016!
Mine arrived (in Australia) yesterday. Beautiful cards and the dice are just stunning!
@Jeff I'm glad you like your stuff! Unfortunately I've had a small handful of people have to suffer that delay at the DFW sorting facility... I'm not sure what caused it, but I'm happy that things are arriving and moving now.
Got mine yesterday. Exceptionally well drawn and executed!
Mine had got caught up in Texas for an extra few days. No worries though, stuff like that happens.
Mine arrived today. Thank you very much.
Received my cards, print, dice, and bookmarks! Everything looks AWESOME, especially the print, I'm so glad I got one. Thanks Galen!
Hey Richard, I'm sorry it got delayed... can you message me your tracking number and I'll see what I can do?
Apparently, the shipment sent to me on the 17th has been delayed for some inexplicable reason in Texas. I'm still waiting for USPS to get their heads out of their backsides. Gahlen, you should tell them you want a refund on your shipping costs, since there's no reason sending something first class should be taking them this long.
My cards and dice arrived today here in Taranaki, New Zealand :)
Got my decks today!! Thanks, Galen, these are beautiful ^_^
I just got my deck and signed card. They are beautiful Galen Ihlenfeldt! Thank you!!
Just received my cards today in the UK, beautiful job, Thanks :)
Hey guys! I'm glad things are arriving! I genuinely wanted to be done with shipping by today, but it didn't quite happen. I did manage to send out about 150 or so packages yesterday though, which leaves me with only about 30 left to go until we're all done! As it stands right now, everything that's left will be in the mail on Monday morning!
I'll post a new update once I've dropped off the last package, and we'll talk about when to do a group hangout thingy, plus I can finally reveal my new idea!
Just received my prints and cards today as well. Everything looks wonderful!
My beautiful cards just arrived (18-July-2015) here in Fullerton, California!
Thank You for these treasures from The Deep!
First wave of shipping went out this morning! That's roughly 22% done!
@John GT, yes absolutely. Just type something like "1 pair, one of each color" or "split pair" in that part of the survey :)
Galen, is it possible to get 1 of each die color in a "pair" of dice?
@D-Boy, update incoming momentarily, ;)
Today marks two weeks since the end of the campaign. Any news yet, Galen? ::puppy dog eyes::
@Galen the Creator,
Congratulations on your Project's Funding, Galen!!!
I'm so excited and extremely happy to be a part of it's success!
Your artwork is just amazing, and now it can be shared with the world!!! :):):)
Congratulations on a job well done to us all! Soon we will reap the benefits of all our hard work on spreading the news, getting others involved, resulting in the successful funding of this project! :):):)
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I for one:
- a) Can't wait to see all this artwork in person, and
- b) Anxious to see what the next project will be! (*˘︶˘*)
Backer & Fan ;)
YAY! :D So excited! Thank you so much!
Congrats, Galen! You hosted a wonderful campaign. You deserve this!
Can't wait to start getting those updates as this idea becomes a reality. Best of luck, sir!
I knew we were going to do it, and now we’re there. Can’t wait to see the cards in person.
Yeah, Galen said as much.
I'm not familiar with the process, and Galen explained.
I understand, but was worth a shot to ask :)
@Tammy Jo - Obviously, only Galen can truly answer this. However, seeing as the stretch goal to unlock the coins is about $3,000, I would assume that means that there is a minimum batch order that would be required to make them. Just making a small handful seems like it might be out of the question. Of course, I defer to Galen once he responds.
@Galen the Creator:
Just upped my pledge to add an 'Unlimited Deck' along with my Original LE deck reward, poster and dice! :)
But I have to say, and I know I'm not the only one, that I am sooo truly intrigued with the "Deep Coins!" and extremely bummed at the possibility that they may not get unlocked! :c (major pout!)
Is there any possibility that you could find a way to get just a few of the coins made for those Backers who would really like to have at least one in order to complete the whole "Deep" collection???
Maybe as a special Add-On that's exclusive to Backers only?
Please, Please, Pretty Pleeeaaase!!! :):):)
Any information that you could provide would be absolutely fabulous!!! ;)
Regardless of the outcome, I will forever be...
Your Backer & Fan,
@Galen the Creator:
Is it too late to request art for the posters?
I just love how the final "LE Tuck Box" turned out, especially with the logo popping out now - that I would Love to get that as a poster! :)
Similar to #7 (the pic of the old LE Tuck wLogo)
I've already added to my pledge for a poster, would love to make it two?
Please let me know?
Thanks so much!!!

Your Backer & Fan,
Only 3 Very Short Dayss Left to Spread the Word!
Here's today's Twitter reminder from me:
Let's all post similar messages multiple times each day on Facebook and Twitter!
@D-Boy, the stretch goals were calculated to make the changes and upgrades affordable within the budget of that goal. Adding the limited deck with a new back is the same thing as ordering 2 separate decks, significantly increasing costs per deck, not only of the limited, but the unlimited as well. The stretch goals were calculated to allow for that price increase as well as to allow for the numbers ordered to rise, thus lowering the production cost... as much as I would love to produce it all, I just can't unless we hit those goals, because I really want to do everything too... I have to make sure there is enough in the budget to not only produce everything, but ship it out to everyone as well.
I'm sorry if that's a disappointment.
But, there will be an update today with some more art reveals! :)
@Galen - We are quickly coming down to the wire and, while the last 48 hours can sometimes bring in huge numbers, there is still a lot of ground to cover on these stretch goals. Unless this causes problems (or is vehemently opposed by my fellow backers), could we perhaps switch the two goals and have the Shane Tyree goal at $12,000 and the coin goal at $15,000? Personally, while I would totally get the coin, if I had to choose, I would much rather have the LE deck get a cosmetic upgrade instead. Thoughts?
Only 7 Very Short Days Left!
@Joel - 3 more will be revealed before the campaign is over. :) The last 2 are the likeness rewards, and they'll be completed/revealed immediately after the campaign closes.
Are the other royalty cards going to be revealed before the campaign ends?
@Maria Mc, yes if you want a pair of dice, just go into manage your pledge and add $3. (or more for more pairs) and then at the end of the campaign I will send out a survey and you can specify what add-ons you had, and in your case, what color dice you would like. :)
Hope that helps! Cheers!
I'm so confused! I want to add the dice, but I don't see an option for them. Do I just bump up my pledge and send you a message about it, or am I just missing it?
Sorry, that link should have been:
