New Year’s Doggolutions: Animal Shelter Gift Basket, International Shipping, Custom Dogs, and Token Stands!
Happy new year, hoomans! Brian here.
We’re so happy to see your continued photos and play reports. It’s great to see so many people (and pups!) playing and enjoying the game. Keep tagging us @makebigthings or share using the #gooddogbadzombie hashtag. It really is a delight!
What’s left for the project
- Gift basket for the One Tail at a Time rescue shelter: This is in progress and close to being done! More info below!
- International Shipping: We are working incredibly hard to get EU and international games sent to you! We began the process well before the holidays, but because of all the back-and-forth involved in communicating with warehouses, VAT tax representatives, our manufacturer, and our shippers, we weren’t able to get all our representatives on the same page before they all left for their holiday breaks. Now that our representatives are all back, I am coordinating with them daily to get a clear sense of timelines.
- Custom Dogs: We have picked our work back up on making your custom dogs! We’ll be sharing an update soon detailing the process of their creation!
- 1 and 5 Player Variants: These are in development! We’re working on fine tuning mechanics and will post to our website and here when these play variants are ready.
One Tail at a Time gift basket!
We made a promise to use a portion of funds raised from the campaign to purchase a basket of gifts, treats, toys, and resources for the One Tail at a Time dog rescue shelter in Chicago. We talked with OTAT about what items would be most helpful for their shelter this year, and with that, supplies have been ordered and the gift basket will soon be on its way!
Here’s Lupin unboxing some of the shipments, only slightly sad he doesn’t get to eat all those treats, but mostly very happy to share them with doggos in need.
Thanks to all of your support, this was made pawsible! We’ll be sure to share pictures and a video after we’ve dropped off the basket!
Custom dog tool
We launched this tool right before the holidays, which means we know it’s possible folks missed it, so we just wanted to drop a reminder! The custom dog tool, which you can use to print out your own homemade version of the custom dogs, is available now. Give it a whirl! And share pictures of your cards with us on social media—we love seeing them!
Unlikely Ally stands
We’ve heard some of you that you’d like stands for Unlikely Allies! We designed the components expecting people to swap out tokens as needed, but we also understand the preference for keeping every dog in a stand.
We’re placing an order for extra card stands that we will ship out free of charge! If you’d like a set, please fill out this form by Friday, January 18th. (If you've already requested card stands from us - no need to fill out the form! You're all set.) The stands that we can supply will have a shorter height to make our shipping affordable, but have no trouble holding our tokens. (These shorter stands will also be the ones that we include with custom dogs.)
We expect it to around a month to receive and process these stands after we've placed the order. If you’d prefer stands that are available now, you can order these from Gamecrafter, which are similar to the taller model in the base game.
Hero dogs in action!
Again, thanks so much for your support. We’ve loved seeing your pictures of the game in action, and hearing about how you’ve enjoyed playing the game has meant the world! Feel free to tag us the next time you post the game (Twitter and Instagram: @makebigthings and Facebook: @Make Big Things) and use the hashtag #gooddogbadzombie
