      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.

      Thanks everyone!

      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.

      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.

      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!

      @John GT, yes absolutely. Just type something like "1 pair, one of each color" or "split pair" in that part of the survey :)

      @D-Boy,
      Thanks!
      Yeah, Galen said as much.
      I'm not familiar with the process, and Galen explained.
      I understand, but was worth a shot to ask :)

    27. D-Boy

      on April 26, 2015

      @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...

      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!!!

      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!

    32. Galen Ihlenfeldt 4-time creator on April 24, 2015

      @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?

      @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.

    36. Joel Carson on April 17, 2015

      Are the other royalty cards going to be revealed before the campaign ends?

    37. Galen Ihlenfeldt 4-time creator on April 16, 2015

      @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!

    38. Maria Mc on April 16, 2015

      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?
