Darn you people-we-have-no-control-over! :)
*hit them with a Presidential Attack card!*
If you guys get this out by Yule, I'll be happy! Something to play with my son while waiting for dinner to cook! If not, well, something to play with my son while waiting for the Ball to drop! The last Legendary Showdown with Ctrl-Alt-Del characters was awesome! Can't wait to see this one! I'm really curious about the NSFW set!
@Shteven: I suppose nothing is ever guaranteed when working with overseas manufacturing and freight since it depends on the actions of a lot of people across the world, but I definitely expect delivery before Christmas.
thanks for the update! I'm not sure if I speak for others when I say this, but I would not consider info like that "Spamming", and would be more than happy to get updates like that-- sounds like a Christmas delivery is not a guarantee?
@Shteven: Unfortunately not. Ocean shipping usually takes around 25-35 days (sometimes longer if the ship has unexpected delays), so it still wouldn't have arrived by now. Air freight, on the other hand, only takes about 3 days, but is considerably more expensive. The extra couple of days was well worth the possibility of cutting several weeks off the schedule, but it just didn't pan out.
We were happy to pay for air freight at our own expense if we could find a freight forwarder that was somewhat affordable ('cause you guys deserve good things), but it turns out that air freight rates are incredibly high all around due to the holiday freight rush.
We will keep you updated as we get more information. We try to have one update every month so everyone feels like they are in the loop without anyone feeling like they are getting spammed. We will, of course, have extra updates if big events occur. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the delay! We are doing everything we can to get things moving quickly, but a lot of the schedule depends on other people over whom we have no control.
I'm just curious re: the ocean freight-- if you guys jumped straight on that on Oct 27 (rather than shop around for quicker cheaper options), it would probably already have arrived in the states by now and be ready for shipment?
I don't mean to be impatient- I'm sure you guys are doing whatever you can to expedite, but it would be nice just to get some periodic status updates (since it's been almost 3 weeks since the games were apparently printed, boxed and ready to go). I suspect there may be people who ordered this as a Christmas present who would understandably be getting worried
any update on this at all? Was hoping to bring this to play at Thanksgiving with game/politics-loving family members :(
Right on, Robert. You nailed it. This is my second backing from them, the first was when they went with CAD and I got more from them this time around.
They even partially shipped my order this time from stuff in stock on amazon to partially fulfil my reward.
If you’re getting impatient, please remember Roberts points and give these guys more time.
Heya all, I either misplaced or never received my CrowdOx link. Can I get a new one/the one that was sent to me (if one was)?
OK couple things:
1 those of you who are getting antsy, impatient, or 'losing hope' rest easy. You'll get your game....KRG is legit. This is my 4th time backing them and there's a reason for that.....see #2.
2. The quality that KRG goes to lengths to get put into the games they send to us backers is right up there with others like Exploding Kittens and Cards Against Humanity....everything is always combed over with a fine tooth comb, crisp graphics and text, high quality card stock and ink, etc. I've never been disappointed.
3. Patience is a virtue.
4. I've backed things that literally delivered over 2 years late while lacking meaningful updates, or spamming useless updates, etc. Don't lose hope over 1.5 months.....the jokes are there...the art is there (I know of Tim Buckley and Jeph Jacques...) the jokes are there....just takes time to put it all together.
@Shteven: Thank you for supporting our Kickstarter! We are currently organizing freight shipping and will publish an official update as soon as we have a target arrival date.
any update at all? last one said that the games were expected "to leave port" in early October.. We're getting very close to Christmas time :/
@John: Sure! Please send us your updated address at email@example.com and we will take care of it.
Hey guys, I'm really looking forward to playing this game! I have moved and I'm not sure if you have the right shipping address. How can I make sure you guys ship it to the right location?
@ M Reeves: Thanks for supporting our Kickstarter! And don't lose hope- we are organizing freight at the moment and should have everything finalized very soon. We will publish an official update as soon as the information is confirmed with the printer and freight companies. This should happen in the next day or two. We just want to make sure the information published in the update is accurate so we don't have to spam our backers with a lot of updates to correct or clarify details.
Any news? (since it's been over a month since the last update and I'm starting to lose hope)
@ J. Brian and Padraic- Thanks for supporting our Kickstarter! We'll publish an update as soon as we get an exact date from our printer. We're getting excited and think that you're going to love the game!
Still looking forward to battling some Prez's!!!
Just curious, any updates from your printers? My son has been bugging me about this game ever since he found out about my backing it. He and I have fun playing Gamer's Quest, so he wants to see another edition. That, and he's got a fantastic history teacher who he told about this game, and he wants to see it! Thanks guys for making such a great game!
@Antonio, thank you for supporting our Kickstarter! We didn't reach the stretch goal, but I think you're going to be very happy with the other extras available.
I know we didn't make the $100k.. but those oversized collector's cards would be sweet. *sigh* I still love you KRG. *sniff*
Yes, I will resend your survey.
Hi, I've moved since the survey came out - could you resend please?
We will send out a final notice immediately before shipping starts to ensure that everyone has one last chance to add products.
@KRG: When is the last chance to add anything to the pledge via Crowdox? If its passed (as you seem to be talking about printing), I'll look for it at retail. If not, I'd quite like to add a couple things when I have the money.
@Shteven: We are *expecting* an update with a estimated date from the printer today. When we hear back, we will post an update for everyone. Until then, any guesses we might make would be completely unreliable. This printer has been tried and tested. They produce excellent quality games (perhaps the best we've seen), but their communication isn't always as prompt as we'd like. If we don't hear back from them today, we will follow up with them and request a date again. We should hopefully have an update ready in the next day or so.
It would be nice to have a ballpark estimate of you could?
Are we talking a couple weeks, a couple months, 2018?
Thanks for backing us! We're still working with the printer on an exact date but we will write an update as soon as we have one. Happy Labor Day!
Any chance of an update on when our new target delivery date will be since we've passed August?
I show that you completed your Crowdox survey on July 10th. I resent it just in case you wanted to updated any information.
I don't think I ever got my Crowdox survey. Can it be re-sent?
Hi David- I will resend your link to the Crowdox survey.
I don't believe I got my Crowdox
I may need more cards of a certain President...
Members of my gaming group are not going to be kind to that play piece.
Yes, I will send an email for you to reset your address.
Would you please help me update my shipping address?
@Kim Marshall- I will resend your Crowdox pledge manager and you can update your address there.
Good morning, my address has changed since I filled out the CrowdOx survey. How can I update it?
I would like, please, an update from the team: status of the game, and when I might expect to receive shipment.
Knowing nothing is always an order of magnitude worse than knowing, no matter what the answer is.
Thank you most kindly.
Can someone tell me what exactly is the "Kickstarter-Exclusive Legendary Showdown: Machines and Magic Expansion". If I have all the previous versions of the game do i need this?
Any updates on production? The delivery date via Kickstarter says August. I'm painfully aware that in Kickstarter terms that could mean December. I'd just love some idea of when/where you guys are
Gotta say, charging an extra 10$ for a small booster of 25 cards is pretty criminal... considering the weight compared to the main game is almost negligible... You should have made it so that extra shipping is charged after 3 or more items are added, as repeat backers are less likely to add on, and only will do so for content that they couldnt get previously.
Really hope I'm not seeing complaints about the bonus for being a previous backer.....
I've backed all 3 previous games, and dropped $91 in the 1st 24 hrs of this campaign and am thankful to get the $5 which paid for half of the mcninja magnets I wanted...
Thanks KRG for the bonus, and I hope production goes swift and painless!
Filled out the PM...can't wait to share this game with others!
I know people have already mentioned this, but I just wanted to get on the list. I backed the project within the first hour or 2 after it went live. I had backed the previous gamers set (which I totally love BTW!) I didn't see a bonus for me either. Either way, still bought another set of Ctrl-Alt-Del magnets! Just let us know when you get it figured out! You guys are awesome!
Guys, it's trying to charge me extra for shipping the magnets as an add-on to the KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE SET - the updates suggest this is wrong (i pledged an extra $10) at the time like it said to. suggestions?
Hi guys! How on track are you for August delivery?
