      Hello. Still nothing. Am I the only one?

      @Tracey: We will look into it and get everything straightened out.

      If anyone else is missing their Kickstarter rewards, just send us a private Kickstarter message and we will respond directly.

      Still not arrived....

      Great game & fun artwork (and one can even learn a little history).
      My solution to the problem of how many points to assign to Trump has been to keep a die with the game and roll for a value, either whenever one of his cards is dealt, or (my preference) whenever his card reaches the front of the line. 45 as a random element seems fitting.

      @Tony Thanks for the info. I live in the middle of WA so it normally takes a week or two for stuff to arrive so just knowing it is coming is enough.

      @Cameron - I'm in Hobart and mine arrived on the 19th. It looks like local fulfillment is being handled by Unicorn Games, so you could try contacting them through their website ( and they'll hopefully give you a straight answer.

      Mine arrived today South East of the UK. Pretty happy with getting it. Personally any delays have meant nothing since I still need to play with the card from the last Kickstart.

      Got it - parcel service just delivered it today @ my address in Leipzig, Germany... Very nice, with the expansion packs, we will have a lot of fun. The 45th Co-President of the United States alone was worth getting the expansion ;)

    11. Scott Bradley on

      Any update of the UK items?

    12. Emil Dafinov on

      Well, minus the tracking number, but I guess that depends on the destination.

    13. Jarkeld on

      Got my tracking number as well. Yay!

      Today I have received an email from gamesquest with the tracking number.

    15. Emil Dafinov on

      Has anyone seen any international orders ship in the last week? I tried contacting GamesQuest a couple of days ago through their website, but I haven't had a reply...

      Ditto on the packaging comments.

      I received the game and played it for the first time- was quite fun. However, I literally can't imagine a worse packaging choice. How much more could it have cost to either A) make the main case larger to fit a couple expansion pack, or B) at least have a mini-deck pack for the expansions. Shrink wrapping the expansions with no package whatsoever is ludicrous IMO- clearly you guys understood the main game needed a package (why not just have simply shrinkwrapped the cards and make us put it in a shoebox?), so I can't understand how anyone thought it would be a good idea to essentially give us 100 loose cards that can't fit in the main box- I'm not a big gamer, but I have never heard of a card game being packaged like this (besides collector-type cards). This is likely going to result in most people never using the expansions because when they take out "the game" it will just be the main cards. You said there was no "prefect" solution, so you somehow went with the worst one (a "deck box" like a bicycle deck box) would have satisfied most people...............

    17. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      @Scott: I wish we knew. Here is what we DO know: The ship arrived about 26 days ago. It appears to have taken several weeks to get off the boat and be delivered to GamesQuest. GamesQuest received the shipment on January 19th, but the items weren't catalogued and ready to ship until January 22nd. We sent the order list as soon as we received confirmation. We added some tracking emails to help us monitor their progress, but we haven't received any confirmation emails yet. We followed up with GamesQuest yesterday since we hadn't seen anything ship or received any feedback from them. They responded today and apologized for the delay, and said that they will make our project a priority. We still haven't seen anything ship, but that doesn't mean that the orders without our tracking information haven't shipped. We've had great experiences with GamesQuest in the past, but lately it's been rather disappointing. Hopefully we will start seeing some orders ship soon.

    18. Scott Bradley on

      26 days after apparently arriving in UK is taking the mick a little bit, what are they doing with it?!

    19. Gal Niv

      I just got my copy today! Looking forward to playing the game — the cards look great.

      I have to mention the packaging, though... it feels like a really poor choice to make the box juuuuust too small to hold the expansions (even if the insert is removed, which I had to do to get it even close). Just a few extra millimeters in depth or length would have made all the difference. I get that you designed it for just the base game, but especially given the expansions are already out, you’re in essence penalizing people who like the game enough to buy the expansions in favor of those who don’t want to do that. This just means that the cards will wear down faster and/or be lost. I have many board/card games, and it’s always great to see one where the developers thought about how everything fits in the box, and always disappointing to see ones where that just wasn’t the case. Just a shame to see a new game fall into the latter category.

      @Scott: By now, the UK shipment has probably become part of a "spite wall" at a golf course somewhere near Aberdeen. ;)

    21. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      @Scott: You shouldn't be worried. I don't know what the delay is, but we recently wrote them to follow up again, and we are waiting for a response. The shipping list is ready to go, we just need to hear from GamesQuest. Fulfillment to the USA and Europe and entirely separate and done by different groups, so there's no prioritization involved, just import delays.

    22. Scott Bradley on

      Still waiting for mine in the UK. Considering they landed 17 days ago, should I be worried? I hope it's not that you prioritised the US backers first before sending off the UK ones

    23. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      @Emil: Hopefully they will ship very soon. They were unloaded from the ship in the UK about 2 weeks ago, so they *should* have arrived at GamesQuest by now. We've sent follow up emails, but we are waiting for a response.

      Are there any estimates regarding timeline for the shipments to Canada?

      le sigh. the so-called NSFW cards, aren't. I was really pleased at the notion of getting something NSFW by one of my favorite comic artists, and here I get some political stuff that isn't obscene, have any nudity, or would even make my mother blush -- I didn't expect CAH level obscene illustrations, but i did expect something more than some political satire, if you can call it that. le sigh.

    26. Ben Moyer on

      Maybe i'm missing the obvious somewhere, but do you have listing for the number of cards for each pack so that if we decide to look for an alternative card storage solution we know how many cards to make sure it can hold? I'm currently have my eye on this one on Amazon since it has separating slots where i could keep tokens/coin.

    27. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      Hi everyone! Thank you for the feedback! We are making excellent progress with shipping, and working to send everyone's backer rewards as quickly as possible.

      @Justin: You can contact us at, We'll get things sorted out for you.

      @Cesar: There are a lot of great options on Amazon. Just search for "plastic card sleeves". You will find examples like this:…

      @Ben: No, there shouldn't be anything with the card. Those were left over from a previous Kickstarter, and we used them to separate different items in the packages to prevent damage during shipment. We considered ordering some new protective materials, but using up the old cards seemed better for the environment.

      Yes, in retrospect, it would have been better to include a slot for the tokens. Including room in the box for expansion sets has some pros and cons. It would have been great for backers with both expansions, but bad for backers without expansions, and it would have increased shipping costs as well. I don't think there is a solution that would have worked perfectly for everyone, but these are great thoughts and we appreciate you sharing. We will take these notes into consideration for future projects. Thank you!

      Now... back to shipping!

    28. justin kraft

      Do you guys have a contact email? I had signed up to receive the base game, and all three expansions and was accidentally shipped a second copy of gamer's quest.

    29. Cesar Anton on

      Thank you! I got my cards yesterday and spent a good time admiring all the cards one by one. They are quite beautiful! and the quality is as good as it gets!

      The team did an amazing job. I just love this game.

      Is there any recommended protector for the cards? I would like to properly shield them, but I don't want to ruin its current shape and feel with an improper plastic. If all fails, I may laminate them at the office but that will take me a while 0=)

      About using the box to store the expansion packs, it would have been a great thing. Even removing the plastic, it misses a few millimeters to be able to fit 3 columns of cards. I'll look for some alternatives, but it's a shame, the box it's pretty and well made.

      I hope the team consider selling some larger boxes and official protecting plastics in the future.

    30. Padraic on

      I got my box a little while ago. I must say, I am very pleased with the game! The coins are just as hefty and beautiful as the Gamer's Quest coins were. Nice design and textures! They don't feel cheap by a long shot! The magnets are great, just waiting to be turned into their own little scenes! The box is extremely sturdy, has a beautiful texture and feel to it. Not going to break this box anytime soon! The tray inside is much thicker and heftier than the tray with Gamer's Quest, very pleased you guys changed that! The cards are just as beautiful as the Gamer's Quest cards were. I have looked at the cards, and I'm going to borrow from my review of Gamer's Quest: Oh, the cards! The Cards! Those Wonderful Cards! If you’ve ever opened a brand-new deck of Bicycle cards, then these will remind you of them! They have the same feel, texture, and rigidity as a deck of poker cards. I love it! It tells me that these cards aren’t only meant to be admired, but played with and used, but not abused! It does mean that they’ll get worn on the rounded corners, just like playing cards, but then that’s a badge of honor for a game like this! It means that you’re playing a great game! I recommend using a playing mat, like ones for MTG or some other CCG to protect your cards from scratching, and to keep them from slipping all over the place, as playing cards do! But, it’s down to the artwork! Tim Buckley has done it again! He's taken the Presidents, done his research, and created artwork and backgrounds that represent each President beautifully! The Influential Women Expansion cards are tastefully done. Each woman represented is done so that either mimics an historical picture of them, or represents their greatest accomplishment! Very pleased, very excited! History in a game, what a concept!

      Unfortunately, I do have some minor complaints. I’m going to agree with some of the previous… ahem… reviews. The tokens are a bit much. I get why you guys did it, it adds another layer to the game. GREAT! But, they are cardboard, and there’s no place in the box to safely store them. They’ll rattle around and get damaged. I think they should have been made of plastic, that would have been much better. Or, at the very least, you should have included some sort of slot in the tray for the tokens. I’m going to use a jewelry bag to hold the tokens, until I can find something that will match what you’ve created, but more durable to abuse. Also, the card expansions just came in a plastic wrapper. They should have come in their own separate boxes, or at the very least, had room for the them in the main box set. Thankfully, I have my own solution to that problem, so there’s that. I really loathe to say this, but the cards for the NSFW edition, really aren’t that NSFW. All politics aside, all they do is make fun of everything this current administration has done since the cards went to print. I was hoping for something along side of the bathtub from Taft, the dress from Clinton, a drug joke, something about Watergate, or even something about Marilyn Monroe! I’m disappointed, there were so many jokes you could have done, but you let those slip through your fingers…

      That being said, I look forward to your next game! I know you guys keep looking to improve each time you come up with a new game, and I look forward to getting that one too! You guys are great! I’m excited to play this version, my son and I love playing the Gamer’s Quest, I’m sure we’ll enjoy this one too!
      Great Job, Guys!

      Also, was there supposed to be something in the "compliments of killer robot games" card/envelope? The back says "legendary showdown collector cards" but the inside is blank with just a piece of Scotch tape inside as if something was supposed to have been affixed inside but maybe fell out.

    32. Ben Moyer on

      We need a deeper plastic insert for the expansions. This wouldn't let the lid fully slide down over the bottom but at least the cards wouldn't be loose. While you're at it add a recessed area to store the blue silver star chits ones removed from their packaged perforated card. I'd gladly pay a small amount for this although it really should have been this way on original packaging or at least as a automatic "uprade" to packaging when buying the expansion packs

    33. Ben Moyer on

      I got my package today which was a nice surprise, but I was disappointed to find out that you didn't design the box big enough to hold the NSFW and influential women expansion packs so I basically have loose cards waiting to be lost or damaged. This seems like a really stupid oversight.

      Is there a way for us to see a form of tracking of our package through the mail? I have not received the game or any emails confirming any form of shipment.

      Because reasons on my end, my address ended up being wrong and the package might be returned to sender. Who should I be in contact with about rectifying this situation?

      Random customs inspection be damned! This is all being orchestrated by the White House in order to replace the Trump cards with something more flattering! (That's my conspiracy theory rant for the day)

    44. Padraic on

      Hey, guys, if you have ever played any of the previous games, then you know this game is going to be good. The only thing I'm seeing as a change is the "yuk yuks" factor. Relax! They got their last game out on time. They'll get this one out too! They're now in the realm of "Things they have no control over!" I get it, a lot of people probably had this pegged for a Yule delivery. But if that's true, and you've backed a kickstarter before, then you should have realized that it was going to, either, not happen, or cut it really, really, close! I'm not going to lie, I was hoping for a pre-Yule delivery, but I wasn't going to hold my breath! These guys are cool! Let them work! They're probably more upset about this whole thing than any of us are! I've learned many lessons on here, and one of them is patience. So relax, there are many other things to worry about. Like if Great Aunt Edna is gonna force everyone to eat her fruitcake again this year.... (Cut to dramatic scene of screaming, choking, crying people superimposed over flames and the maniacal cackle of an insane woman) *whispers*

    45. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      @Shteven: We are still waiting to receive the official details. The ship has arrived and unloading began. This shipment was randomly flagged for a closer customs inspection, and we've made arrangements for this to happen as quickly as possible. The shipments will be forwarded as soon as the inspection is complete. We don't know how long the customs inspection will take, but I think it's safe to assume it will be several days. At this point, the most likely outcome is that rewards will start shipping after Christmas. We will let everyone know the official date once we get word from the freight forwarder. Your package may arrive in December, it might arrive in early January, but pre-Christmas is unlikely unless it gets through customs today and arrives at our warehouse tomorrow, in which case some backers may receive the package before Christmas, but the current shipping rush would still delay most packages until after.

      Shteven Miller on

      your last update seemed to imply there was a shot at Xmas delivery--- your comment implies that it should get to your warehouse today-ish (and that your last update is more or less on track).

      I think people (or at least I am) are curious what the timeline is:
      Arrive at warehouse 12/20
      Package and send to backers 12/21
      Arrival to backers across America??? (12/23, 12/26? 12/30? depending on shipment method?)

      That's probably a big oversimplification, but I honestly still don't have any clue if I can expect this in December or January (or before Xmas or after Xmas). Not saying it's your fault, but the only other kickstarters I backed were much clearer with this (once it gets to be 3+ months after initial target and near the holidays, I think people get particularly impatient for updates--- I'm sure I'll be very happy with the game once I get it though)

    47. Killer Robot Games 4-time creator on

      @Emil: thank you for supporting our Kickstarter! The ship carrying the games has landed in the United States. We are waiting for it to be unloaded, go through customs and have paid for overnight shipping from the port to our warehouse (our previous update has a few more details).

    48. Emil Dafinov on

      I was wondering if there are any shipping updates? It is past the December 17th date indicated in the previous one.

    49. Arthur Levesque
