      They will of course be going out to backers before anyone else can get copies. We've been very clear about that.

      I guess. I wish you could ship them to people who paid instead of going out to those who didn’t....

      @Wesley: If you look at our updates, you can see where the game is. The tl;dr version: We have begun the process of sending it to the printer and are going back and forth with them on files. We think we may have some copies to show off at PAX East, and hope to begin fulfillment in a few months. I hope that helps.

      Mini-American sleeves should fit perfect. Thanks!

      @Dave: Thanks. We definitely want Thornwatch to be the best game it can be.

    9. Dave Brohman on January 19

      Bummed that the game is still many months away from being shipped but excited for it whenever it DOES arrive. Glad the creators are taking their time to make it the best game possible rather than rushing it out the door to meet a deadline.

      @Michael and @Jari: We checked. They're 41.5mm x 63mm. They should fit in all mini euro-size sleeves.

      We'll check on that with the printer. Thanks.

    14. Jari Avikainen on January 11

      So in order to sleeve the small cards I'll need mini euro size sleeves and need to trim ~5mm from the top?

    15. Lone Shark Games 5-time creator
      Superbacker
      on January 11

      Not all of them. Some are mini cards at 44x63mm.

    16. Michael Guidry on January 9

      Are all of the cards standard card size, 63.5 mm x 88 mm?

      Hey, is there any way of changing the address? I've tried the pledge manager and it's locked.

      I think we had our last playtest today, and changed almost nothing. So now it's a matter of getting it finished in file management, printed, and shipped. We'll let folks know when we know how long that will take.

    20. Andrew on December 4

      Sounds like some people have forgotten that Kickstarter isn't Amazon. If you wanted a game by next Friday, or any date for that matter, you should have bought one that was already made.

      I'm not thrilled with delays either, but at least they're not saying "It'll be done when it's done." Still very much looking forward to playing.

      @Michael: Much appreciated. We definitely don't want it to be a year longer, though.

    22. Michael Guidry on December 2

      I’d rather have an amazing game that takes a year longer than to have a game on time that falls short. As much as I want to play it, I know it’s worth the wait.

      @Brian: We get it. We're making a very big, very good game here. It's taking a while. But finishing the files in graphic design is a huge step. And we're going to get it to you as soon as we can.

    24. Lone Shark Games 5-time creator

      on December 1

      @Robert: In the November 14 update I directly said:

      Now, just to temper expectations, there is a giant gap between "We've finished in graphic design" and "We're printing the game." This is the point where we can start the process of getting the game into its printable file formats and into a printer's hands. It definitely takes months, but how many months is unknown at this point. So if you ask us at PAX Unplugged, "When is the game coming out?" we're still going to shrug and say we don't know. But next week, we'll be ready to start the process of finding out."

      Two weeks later, I'm saying the same thing. Your speculation on dates isn't based on anything, and neither is mine. When our printer tells us, we'll tell you. That's how this works. What I can say is that this week, we're ready to start on final file prep, as soon as we settle on the specifications of that preparation. We are doing exactly what @Brian is saying: not making promises without information. The end result is that the game will be in our hands when it gets here, and then you'll get it. Till then, I appreciate your patience.

      Mike

      In your last update you implied that the game would be out in a couple of months, in this update you say that "at the next panel we'll have a better idea of when it might be available", and that panel is a couple of months away!

      So, what? We're looking at the middle of next year now?!? In the original campaign you set a target date of September 2017 and here you are three months past it without ever having acknowledged it as well as tacking more months on to the project with every single update!

    26. Brian J. Blottie

      Based on the verbiage at the end of the last update, I'm guessing we're looking at a June, 2018 release.

      If this were a one-time, unforeseen delay, I'd understand. But The Ninth World isn't even close to shipping yet, either, and Apocrypha was also over a year late as well.

      All we ask is for you to be honest up front, and not set expectations that you can turn around a game in a certain time frame, only for them to consistently be more than a year late. Set the expectation up front that "this isn't even close to done, this is an idea, the art isn't done, the playtesting isn't done, so we're looking at shipping sometimes in 2019."

      I'd rather be told that it's going to take a longer than typical time due to issues with printing and art than be told that you'll have it pumped out in less than a year, when you've NEVER gotten a game out the door in that time.

      So... a month behind schedule which isn't a biggie but the lack of updates explaning why is a bit annoying. I mean even if you can't say when the printing is done... why not share some pictures of the printing process or behind the scenes or... anything!

      @Michael: We'll make an announcement about that when we finalize the game with a printer.

    31. Michael Guidry on November 29

      Is there a final card count for the core/expansion? And card size/sizes?

      Humula on November 26

      Are we still able to change shipping addresses? I tried to go into the pledge manager and change my shipping address since I have moved, but the pledge manager said it was locked and could not be edited. Thank you very much.

    34. Corey Mueller on November 9

      Sad to still be waiting, but waiting patiently none the less. I've backed all 4 Reaper Miniatures Bones kickstarters, so I'm more than accustomed to long lead times for the good stuff to finally show up on my doorstep.

      Just keep us updated.

    35. Lone Shark Games 5-time creator

      No. Our goal is to wrap it up on our side shortly, then see when our printers can get it done. That's a complex process, and we never speculate on the outcome until we hear a return date from our printer.

      Thank you very much for the open lines of communication, even when its just to say "nope, we still don't know yet". Having gone through a few campaigns that were totally silent, its really appreciated.

      We are waiting for Dark of the Wood to be completed before we ship the Core Set out.

      Nathaniel Beers on October 1

      I have a shipping question. Are you waiting for Dark of the Woods to be completed before you ship both items out, or are you planning on shipping the core first while you continue work on Dark of the Woods? I'm pretty sure I have not seen this answered anywhere, but I apologize if this is a repeat.
