Holiday Card and progress

Hello backers! Its been a couple of weeks since an update so we wanted to share for the holidays. Above is the link to a holiday card you can print out and give to that extra special person. We understand Zpocalypse may have been a gift so feel free to print it so they know what's coming to them.

Don't think we've been hitting the 'nog early- we've been quite busy the past couple of weeks. For one, we started shooting our production tutorial videos. We setup our very own studio in Jeff's basement. It's all very Hollywood. Working on stop motion video is pain staking but still allot of fun. We also have started looking at what comes after Zpocalypse. (Yes besides certain doom.) More on that later...

Each week Jeff talks to GPI and each week we hear the same response "We are still on schedule". This means they are now looking into which boats are will leave China the beginning of January. I wish there was more to report but that is all we've been told.

Ho ho ho!

      @Jeff, Perhaps we are talking at cross purposes. I don't think the time "between the ship leaving China and us unboxing the game" is dependant on the games being on the boat. I'm not asking when we'll get it, I'm asking how much longer after the ship leaves will it take to get to us?

      @Erik and AGN1964. The card front has been updated both links above have the new flipped front for correct card for assembly: Thank you for you help in pointing out the error!

      @AGN1964 I wish I could give you an estimate but until the games are are on the boat everything is really up in the air. However I just heard this morning that final production samples are en route which means we are getting close to shipping.

      Thank you to all those who have spoken kindly about us despite the delays in production. We are doing our very best to get a quality game to you all.

      @Andrew Martin . All of that equipment you see in the shot there is personally owned. Every single cent we got from Kickstarter went to making the game and shipping it to our Backers.

      the studio there, is actually Jeff's basement, who also happens to be a mediaphile, thus the professional looking gear.

      I shouldn't msg before coffee. *can't. I can't assemble it, either.

      @Eric. I can assemble it, either.

      Thanks for the update. Glad hear it's all on track.

      "I wish there was more to report" - there is! I have no idea how long it takes to ship from China, clear customs, organise in your warehouse, ship out to us backers, etc. I'm not sure I even know all the steps. Can you give us an estimate of the time between the ship leaving China and us unboxing the game? Say for US, Canadian and UK backers?

      I think the outside of the card is flipped. If you want it to double sided and fold properly, you want the front image to be the right half. Yeah? I think I have that correct...

      I haven't gotten anything yet.

      @Andrew - We did get the game for much much cheaper (and with all the extra expansions) than a retail copy, right?

      This is probably a bit more mean spirited that I intend, but I somewhat innocently think of Kickstarter as a place where I fund projects that wouldn't be published otherwise and normally have to be on a shoestring budget even after donations. So I kind of get the heebie jeebies when I see something that suggests that the money went to 'luxury items' like fancy studio equipment for filming tutorial videos. I suppose I'll be proud if Greenbrier Games becomes the next Fantasy Flight and I helped make it happen but otherwise it seems a bit excessive IMO. Maybe I'm just prickly because ALL my Kickstarters are late and it's a week from Christmas. Or maybe I have a point. :)
