Proofs and White Box Approval and A Plastic Insert Tray Video for Fun!
Progress Continues on the Manufacturing Front!
All samples were approved and ready for manufacture as of last week. A few additional corrections were found and made and we continue to move forward. Our rep at Whatz has told us they expect manufacturing to be completed by the end of December, at which point all the games will be loaded into containers and on to boats for the dangerous journey over pirate ridden seas (ok, maybe not exactly dangerous and not particularly pirate ridden) to the US, Canada and the UK (for EU and Rest of World fulfillment)!
Plastic Insert Tray
When making the plastic insert tray Whatz discovered that in order to properly fit everything it would push the top of the box up approximately 6mm. So, new box files were made and the box depth increased from 55mm to 61mm.
For funsies, here's a video that they sent us of the plastic insert tray with all of the white box samples, meeples and dice included!
Pledge Manager Updates
There are still approximately 20 backers who have NOT completed their pledge manager (including 16 who have not even logged in to the pledge manager at all).
I would strongly urge you to complete your pledge manager before the end of the year if you have not yet done so.
If you have not logged in to or completed your Pledge Manager you will be sent a re-invite soon. If you are not sent a re-invite by November 20th, you may assume you've logged in AND completed your pledge manager, barring any corrections of course;
What if I don't see the email by November 21st?
- Check your spam folder. If you use Gmail, sometimes your invite will go to your "Promotions" tab. If you still can't find it, search your inbox for "PledgeManager" If that doesn't work:
- 1. Click - https://iwillnevergrowup.pledgemanager.com/projects/into-the-black-boarding-party-0/
- 2. Click "Request New Invite"
- 3. Enter your email address (the one you pledged with)
- 4. Wait at least 10 minutes - then go to your email, open the invite, and click the giant button to confirm all your goodies
- And if that doesn't work submit a support request.
There's something wrong with my pledge!
That's not impossible. If you notice something is awry, you can send us a message directly to email@example.com and we'll look at it for you.
What if I need to change my address?
As long as your items have not been shipped, you can always change your address. Just simply log back in to PledgeManager at https://iwillnevergrowup.pledgemanager.com/projects/into-the-black-boarding-party-0/ and make the appropriate change.
However, please note that if you change your country, additional shipping costs may apply.
That's all for now!
Until next time, Cheers!
