Have a question?
I got my ones. Thanks. Can anyone let me know what the automobile-shaped figure is? It is sealed with German text on it.
I forgot to mention that in the future that since you printed on both sides of the board it may be better to put "the game" on both sides in the event of an accident on one side :-)
I finally got the chance to open my box up. The tiles feel great and will last a very long time. The player tokens are great too! Somehow my insert was a little torn on each of the edges though. I mainly use the insert to "hide" the instructions in other languages anyways. :-)
> My kids don't even respond to me that fast!
*Sigh* Guess we have to fix this one too. Apply two servings of Nutella, morning and afternoon. Repeat for a period of approximately 18 years, and call us in the morning.
Just wanted to jump in and say again how amazing these guys are! There was a small issue with my package, and it was handled so fast, that the missing part already arrived! That was like a three day turn around.
My kids don't even respond to me that fast!
Game arrived today, The bits are clearly good quality and all much large than I expected, glad to own a copy. Mine came almost pre punched as well, fortunately doesn't appear that any tiles got damaged, but I'll need to take inventory to make sure I have them all, at first glance it appears right.
USA backers: USPS tracking numbers are now available. Please send us a message through the KS system if you would like to have yours.
Thanks Patrick! For that tile, please take a picture, and we'll know which one it is. Just email it to kickstarter ,\ a /, ludicreations.com
Dividers and inserts are generally useless. I'd rather have more bits and have to track down my own storage solution any day. Some people don't appreciate the cost associated with as much cardboard as inserts take to make.
But for things like this you may want to consider shrinkwrapping the punchboards(or bagging them like Fantasy Flight Games has began doing). My game came mostly pre-punched for me. Only one tile got messed up(I'll be contacting you privately for that tonight once I figure out again which one it was) though so that's good. Thanks for such an awesome game.
And with my addon I can finally say that for once... The spanish Inquisition WAS expected! http://www.youtube.com/watch…
> I got my package in NY and it a heavy one. And you also send me candy? No one ever send me candy. :'-( So happy.
You might not be so happy after you've tasted it... best use a friend (or an enemy) as a test subject first.
I got my package in NY and it a heavy one. And you also send me candy? No one ever send me candy. :'-( So happy.
Sorry to cause you sadness, Gerald. Note that there was not going to be an insert at all - it was a "present" from the factory, albeit a somewhat costly one. Unfortunately dividers would not have been easy, or very easy, or feasible, especially at the price that you got the game for - we decided to allocate the budget to ensuring the quality of the bits that you play with.
I'm not eating my candy, got my copy in AZ yesterday. Everything is here and in great shape. It would have been VERY easy to put dividers in the box to sort the tiles. I guess we have to use baggies, very sad.
Oh..and the candy..its a slightly sweeted, but mostly bitter licorice gummy candy. Not quite my preference...but it was very high quality. I gave it to a friends kid who nommed it down happily.
I just got my copy today. I live in Oregon. Just for people who are wondering about general delays.
God this thing looks pretty. These pieces are beautiful and the quality and thickness is impressive.
Good Job guys. It was definitely worth the wait.
No idea - the USPS works in mysterious ways. We will attempt to get tracking numbers.
How long should we wait before reporting not received? I'm in Tennessee, and it looks like people as far as the West coast have gotten theirs, and states all around me as well. Thanks.
Last update was basically it.
I wish there was an update to say they were being shipped, had to come to comments to find info.
Can't wait to get home to see if mine is waiting!!
Mine arrived in central Illinois today. Everything looks good from the outside!
Yup, received & answered. Thing with comments is, we have to reply to them as well, because otherwise we wouldn't be doing our jobs as project creators.
I did the same time I posted here.
Please, if you are missing something, send us a message first - having to reply to comments just slows down the process.
Is anyone else missing the player aid tiles?
Surpriiiiiise! But... flavor? We never promised flavor! Man, you backers! We give, and we give, and we give...
I received mine yesterday. Package was in mint condition. There was a candy car of some sort inside, but I don't speak any of the languages on the package. Does anyone know what flavor this exotic treat is?
I just got mine in Florida. Thanks!
Arrived today in South Carolina. Box is in pretty good condition (something was sitting on part of it, looks like, push it in a bit), but everything seems to be here. Thanks for the hard work and great communication when it was needed most.
Those damn Nutella thieves strike again! Don't worry Tim, we'll get to the bottom of this this - wonder if Game Salute is busy these days...
At long last, the game arrived yesterday complete with add-on, but no Nutella :(. Looking forward to playing it for the first time with the family.
Mine arrived yesterday in California. Really excited to play it!
Mine came today in Ohio. I have not opened it yet, though the outside box is in great shape.
> Any specific address?
Yup, we posted it in our previous reply: kickstarter ,\ a /, ludicreations.com
> Just wish there was some way to organize them in the box instead of resorting to rubber bands.
We've seen foamboard and plastic baggies being used.
Will send a pic. Any specific address? Thanks for a great Kickstarter. This is the only one I can recall where the online retailers are selling the game for more than the pledge level.
Arrived in Seattle today. A dinged corner to Inquisitio and a couple tears on the insert for G&P but all the components are fine. Really good quality too. Just wish there was some way to organize them in the box instead of resorting to rubber bands.
> One corner of the game box was crushed a bit.
Could you send us a picture, so we can see if we can get some compensation for you? kickstarter ,\ a /, ludicreations.com.
Contents were fine as were additional kickstarter material. Awesome quality complements and an awesome game!
Received my copy today in Massachusetts. One corner of the game box was crushed a bit. Byzantio box was fine. Looks like the damage occurred prior to packing.
You are welcome, and thank you for your support and your patience. Keep pushing us to do better!
Got mine today in NYC. In perfect condition and all complete. Thanks so much for a truly excellent product!
looking forward to seeing a new listing or two on BGG
Same here! But "2014" can't properly start until we take care of of our "2013" backers!
thanks so much, box got a little dinged, but overall, looking forward to expansions, lots of room in my box for more. looking forward to what 2014 has in store for Ludi
> I have ZERO doubt that you would fix a little thing like this quite quickly, and anyone who has followed you guys at all should easily understand that your customer service is top notch, and know there is no need to worry!
Thanks for your kind words. Apologies if we were too quick with the reply to your comment - we've just seen things - man, terrible, terrible things.
Seriously though, we have experienced (as backers as well as consultants) that the most common cause of failure in campaigns is the lack of communication. Perhaps that causes a general urge to never let a backer wait for a response, and also a good (and healthy?) amount of paranoia about potential non-deliveries, and the perception thereof. That's all, keep calm and EAT NUTELLA!
I didn't think about causing panic from other backers, I just went to the first place I could think of. Sorry!

> I was just writing it. I know you guys are awesome and will take care of it!
Thanks - we can usually take care of something in the most efficient way if you message us - comments tend to create panic, and we get 5 more messages because of them.
I was just writing it. I know you guys are awesome and will take care of it!
> I got mine today.... But it was just the game. No metal gear, no bonus anything, just the game and nothing else!
Could you drop us a message so that we may take care of this for you?
