Hello from Reno! We are at the GAMA Trade Show showing off The Ninth World. Specifically, a 100% real copy of The Ninth World, which arrived in Reno from the factory yesterday. Charles, Tammie, and Darcy from Monte Cook Games were among the first to see it with me and Lone Shark's Paul, Elisa, Sean, and Shane. Every retailer and distributor that has seen it has raved about how it looks. Here's a video shot by Charles as we opened the box for the very first time.

We're still waiting for the all-clear from the factory on the thousands of other copies. When we get it, we'll tell you right away.

Enough words. The rest of this post will be filled with pictures of this gorgeous thing.

That is one fine looking game. When we get the info on when the rest of the copies are shipping to us, we'll let you know. Thanks for supporting The Ninth World!

      Any update on the shipping? Also any chance of having a detailed explanation of why this kickstarter was so delayed. I often forget about it as other board game kickstarters start, get delivered etc

      I sure hope everyone is getting that extra playmap in exchange for the terrible KS this has been. Wish I could get a refund honestly.
