Hello hoomans!

We want to start by saying how cool it’s been to see your games arriving all throughout the US and Canada. It means so much to see your photos and to hear about your experiences playing for the first time!

Thanks for letting us know it arrived safely, Sadie Boos!

For folks in the US who haven’t received their games yet, you should have received a tracking email from Blackbox. We’ve gotten a number of reports of games arriving early, but for those who haven't received them, they should be arriving within Fedex's shipping window. If you’re not sure what your tracking number is, please send us a Kickstarter message and we can look up your info!

Can't find an email with tracking info? Just drop us a line!

Now, down to business!

Domestic Shipping and Shipping Goofs

We’re so happy to hear that the games have arrived and people have started to play! We put so much love into this game, and you all are the ones who made it real. We’re glad to be sharing it with you.

With 2,000 games being shipped out for the holidays, there are bound to be goofs. If something was missing from or damaged in your shipment, reach out to us via Kickstarter messages or email (makebigthings@gmail.com). We’re here to help!

International Shipping

We’ve been working with our manufacturer and fulfillers daily coordinating international shipping. Know that we haven’t rested in our efforts to move international shipping forward as quickly as possible. There are a number of extra steps involved when dealing with getting the games safely to our UK warehouse, including working with a customs broker, navigating international freight shipping, and import taxes. Some of the companies we're working with are being impacted by holiday delays and closures, so we know the process may seem like it's moving along slowly, but we’re getting all of the ducks in a row to get you updated shipping information as soon as we possibly can.

Custom Dog Uploader

We’re doing final testing on our custom dog upload tool before sharing that tool on our website! We hope to release the uploader in our next backer update and we aim to have it live by Friday. Our programmer Jason Woofenden did an amazing job and we can't wait to share it!

The custom dog uploader is nearly complete and ready to be added to our website!

How to Play Video

Finally, we’ve uploaded a how to play video to YouTube. This video walks you through setting up the game, flow of play, and includes some gameplay tips for your first time!

It’s so amazing to see these games arriving in your hands. As always, if you have any questions or need help tracking down a shipment we’re here to assist! We'll have more updates soon, including information about our gift basket headed to the One Tail at a Time shelter in Chicago!

Now, here’s a few more of your pups posing next to their games!

      Hello Brian, Evan, and Hannah,

      Could you upload a PDF of the instruction booklet? My game arrived today and did not include an instruction booklet. Everything else seems to be there, however. Just missing the rules.

      @Steven Yay, glad you got it!

      Ah, no, the online custom dog tool is *in addition* to us getting you the custom dogs. But it's so you can play with your dogs in the mean time while you wait, due to the production delay on the custom dog. It won't have all the customization and bells/whistles of the custom dogs we will be sending you, but it also means you can get going right away playing as your dog! So, you will still be getting your custom dog!

      Let me know if that makes sense or you have questions :)

      Best,
      Brian

      @Stacey So glad the game got to you on your birthday, and that you enjoyed it!! Thanks for the kind words, they really mean a lot.

      @Patrick Really glad you like the video! Lupin's pretty great. But we may need to make Excessive Slobber a power for a future card. :) Excited for the game to get to you soon. Paws crossed!

      Loved the How To Play video. And Lupin. He's slobbery, but a good doggo.

      Waiting patiently for my game to arrive. :-)

      The game arrived yesterday on my birthday! Played it through a few times on my own so I know what's happening before my friends come to play. So much fun! Looking forward to my custom card, and love the prospect of making cards for more of my pack. Great job, everyone!
