Surveys Close September 30!
First off if you have time, here is a video of the pre-production copy I received 2 days ago.
Here's a written overview for those that can't watch the video. If you did, you can skip to the next header :)
- I only received samples of some of the printed components, not everything, but I am really happy with what I have.
- The colour, clarity and material quality are great!
- The metal foil and spot UV turned out perfect.
- The PVC tuck box is nice, durable and closes well. (It will have artwork on it!)
- I have added a KS Exclusive metal sword to the premium version as a thank you to each of you that supported me! It can be used as the Preferred School tracker, or to defend yourself from very small attackers!
Surveys are closing. Addresses are getting locked in!
This may be the most important information from any update: The 6% of you that have not completed your survey - If I don't have your address, I cannot send you your reward! You have until September 30th to complete your CrowdOx survey. If you can't find the emails use this link: CROWDOX
For anyone needing to change their address you can use the link from your completed surveys or this link: CROWDOX You have until September 30th to lock in an address. If you are unsure where you will be use a trusted address from a family member, friend or work.
If you don't understand either of these options and/or need help please contact me through KS messages.
If you were supposed to get a PnP file and haven't let me know. There was a glitch in CrowdOx's software which they have since fixed and re-sent to backers, but if you think you were missed I can look into it!
Please confirm that you have completed your survey. If not we cannot arrange details and I will not be able to send you rewards.
As of right now I am still waiting on a solid confirmation for a completion date from the manufacturer besides "early October." It appears that we are still on schedule to begin fulfilment by mid to end of October. Meaning you should be receiving your games from the end of October to mid-Nov. (Provided there aren't any customs or last minute manufacturing hiccups.)
I don't have an exact timeline as I am waiting on their confirmation, but I will be air-shipping units to Essen for pick-up, EU fulfilment and sales (as it is the official release) so that should cut down on the long freight times.
*The those interested in the manufacturing/publishing side - we are slightly behind as I wanted to fulfil early but this is my first time working with PVC cards, and they forgot to mention the lead time for paper to PVC jumps from 28-54 days!! Lessons learned, and luckily not much of a delay!*
Gorus Maximus Hype?
If you have a few seconds, and are interested in helping us out, BGG has a Essen Preview list which Gorus is listed on. If you click this LINK you can add your thumb which will raise us in the rankings and help bring it to other attendees attention. Even if you aren't attending the support helps, and feel free to share it with gamers you think would be interested.
If you have a few more seconds consider Following, Rating, Commenting or listing Gorus in your collection as "pre-ordered." Any attention you can give it will help it pop onto other's radars :) LINK
For those of you going to Essen Spiel, whether or not you are doing an "Essen Pick up," we would love to see you! Please stop by and say hello in Hall 4 Booth F102. Remember I hug all my backers, so warn me first if you DON'T want a hug before announcing you are a backer! :)
Unless I am misremembering... there haven't been any "real" injuries... We had a really busy end to summer with a lot of fun!
