by Jeff Gracia: Greenbrier Games
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. :)
@Andrew - We did get the game for much much cheaper (and with all the extra expansions) than a retail copy, right?
I haven't gotten anything yet.
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...
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?
@Eric. I can assemble it, either.
I shouldn't msg before coffee. *can't. I can't assemble it, either.
@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.
@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.
@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?
