Ahoy Mateys!

Happy happy days as, after sitting staring out the window awaiting the arrival of the FedEx truck like a kid waiting for the Ice Cream Truck, the Into the Black: Boarding Party, Epic Encounters and Increased Crew White Samples and Print Proofs have arrived from Whatz Games!

There are a couple of very small tweaks to make but I'm so very happy with how everything looks. The colors are bold, the text is clear and legible (and I do believe free of typos) and the components are all fantastic!

Speaking of components, to keep costs down we had intended to have screen printed dice. Well, Whatz has surprised us and sent us engraved, painted dice! Bonus upgrade!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here's a few thousand pictures (ok, maybe just a dozen pictures)! Enjoy!

 I'm SO PLEASED and happy to say we're still on track for an on time delivery of Into the Black: Boarding Party!

Once we've double and triple checked everything we sign off on the samples and go into production. Then comes the agonizing wait for these pirates to cross the seas on their way to your tables!

      Yeah, not really expecting any of those upgrades, to be honest. But whatever you *can* get is definitely welcome.

      Hahah. All of those would be awesome, though a couple (*cough cough* miniatures) obviously not in the cards (ba dum tss).

      More free upgrades? Higher quality cards? Thicker tiles? Free playmat? Minis instead of standees? Just say yes to whatever you can get... you won't hear me complain! ;-)

      @Freddy - They just got back from Essen so I anxiously await their response but; yes, an included upgrade (or perhaps they thought that's what I wanted in the first place?) would be fantastic!

      I wonder if I can get any other free upgrades ... hmmmmmmm. ;)

      (I have to admit, though... those etched dice look incredible... so I hope that it really *is* a free upgrade)

      Oh, I'm not worried in the slightest. Worst case I will get what I backed, best case I will get more/better quality... so I'm fine either way :-)

      @Freddy - No worries. This is certainly not my first time dealing with manufacturing in China. I've sent quite a slew of questions to my rep regarding the samples. Just awaiting responses.

      Might be a good idea to double-check if the engraved dice are indeed supposed to be in here... otherwise you could either have them send us silk screened dice that you never saw, or you could end up with a higher bill than originally agreed...

      Haha, I won't complain either! Etched/Engraved > Printed! I'm going to have to assume that was not a mistake as this is supposed to be the approval copy - WYSIWYG!

      So happy with the meeples!

      If that wasn't a mistake and all the dice will be etched, I won't complain!

      And the meeples look awesome.

      Quick notes: Missing standee bases, cloth bag, a few missing white/grey/black meeples and the molded plastic tray for the base game.

      On the whole this is not a big issue but I've brought it up with my rep as those things are absolutely meant to be included (as on the quote we have).
