Risks and challenges

This is our 4th Kickstarter project and we are excited to be working with Strom Game Manufacturing. Because of our prior experience from our previous campaigns, we know what it takes to produce and deliver a high quality product. Our last game was delivered to backers one month earlier than promised!

We already have a final production quote in hand, the files are already print-ready, and we are very familiar with the manufacturing and fulfillment processes. We will be using a US-based fulfillment company to ensure games are packed and shipped exactly to our specifications.

There are many other challenges that impact the project that lie outside of our control. Unpredictable circumstances such as weather conditions, customs delays, and port congestion make it common for board game production to be delayed. We've done all we can to ensure that this game will be delivered on time if funded.

We've already paid for the costs of licensing, art, and graphic design, and with your help, we can have the funds to print the game, overcome the various obstacles that are in the way, and make sure you are delivered a quality product. We ensure you will be kept informed at every step in the development, printing, and delivery processes.

Thanks for your support!
Justin & Robert, Terra Nova Games
