your last chance for an address change
Laden with games and playmaps, the boats for the EU, US, and Australia have all left China. We've been told they should all arrive by late May, so we're eagerly putting together our shipping manifests for our fulfillment partners. As such, we're closing the PledgeManager on Sunday at noon Pacific time. If you have an address change you want to make, you need to make it now by logging into my.pledgemanager.com. After that, your address in our system will be locked and cannot be changed before we ship the games out.
Within a few weeks, we hope to begin our international shipments (that is, not US and Canada). We need to get promo cards to our fulfillment centers to meet the boats that are arriving in Sydney and Southampton, and then we can begin. Because heavy fog in Shanghai delayed the US shipment, those will get to our fulfillment center last. The US shipment is also far and away the largest set of orders, so we have a lot of work to do. We hope to be done with everything by the end of June, though that is just a goal. Until we have the games in-house and catalogued, we can't know exactly how long it will take. But we're now counting in weeks rather than months.
We're excited to begin this next stage in getting you the games you ordered. Thanks as always for your patience.
This likable group signed a whole bunch of playmaps last week.
After the creative team of Monte Cook, Shanna Germain, Paul Peterson, Bo Radakovich, and I signed the maps, we brought in some of the rest of the development team. If you got a signed playmap, it'll also be signed by the development team of Chad Brown, Liz Spain, Gaby Weidling, Aviva Schecterson, and Skylar Woodies. That's ten signatures for the price of five!
If you ordered a signed playmap and you're in the US or Canada, you'll be getting it with your base game. We sent them to our fulfiller in Florida this week to meet up with the games there. If you are in Europe, Asia, or Australia/Pacific, we are sending those on to our fulfillers there. It's possible they may come with your base game, but if they arrive there after the games are sent out, you might get it in a separate shipment.
Once again, you have until noon Pacific on Sunday to change your address. Then we're going to begin the process of getting The Ninth World to your doorstep. Thanks again!
