Joseph, I just emailed you about this too! I hope you got this resolved but if not Nichole will take care of it!
Tstommel, We haven't heard anything about this before but we haven't tested it for months and months before releasing the board, I would assume this is a natural result of the interaction between the rubber material the clock is made of and the lacquer/wood/finish of the board. I would suggest everyone pull the clock out just a bit so it isn't touching the surface of the board for now just to be safe though.
Of course if it was/is in the sunlight then the sun will fade the part not on the clock over time too, so that could be it. Even normal lights will fade things over time, especially the newer high lumen lights.
Of course it won't effect game play but having a two-toned board like that could be very cool or very annoying depending on your point of view. Please let us know what you find out, re-staining the board is probably a good idea if it is annoying.
Is anyone else having issues with discoloration of your board? I just got mine down off the wall to play last night and the area behind the clock is distinctively lighter than the rest of the board.
Everybody but me got a board - how sad.
Another week..Still no board..Getting impatient.
Still waiting on my board. Someday.
Tatiana, we have just emailed you about this, Jeremy will email you about your board, he either forgot about it or was having trouble getting it mailed to you in Brazil. Sorry about that!
Eric, thanks for your feedback and sorry the board, we do hope you get a lot of use out of it!
@Seth - Another week without my board or a reply from you. Please do something.
I've received my custom Celtic Knots board this past Saturday. Looks good though there's a few things I didn't expect.
1) From the photo it looks a bit more of a gray tone. The board is a heavy/dark green hue.
2) You don't quite notice on the photo but there's water drop like blutches. They show up more on the actual board. I'm guessing this is to mimic stone? maybe?
3) I thought the red pegs and center hole were actually part of the designed. I actually like it. But it's not. I guess I'll might be going to Home Depot for some fire red paint! :D
4) I kind of agree with Ben Bruckart that the pegs do seem a bit tilted. They don't quite seem to affect play though theoretically, applying physics, it would impact play. But I'm not planning on playing in tournaments so that's fine with me. And the accessory clock does fit on it.
5) Speaking of clock... love it. though I expected the face plastic to be glued of something.
Small things. I do love it though!
Got my custom Crokinole board today. It's in good shape. Only thing is the holes for the pegs are at an angle, so the pegs lean at a tilt. I'm wondering if I should drill more direct holes in the same spots but straight down. The angle of the pegs isn't sever but looks bad
Got my board yesterday. It looks great. Really glad I went for the custom print now.
Just got my custom today, box was marked correct, a different board in the box though. Emailed about an exchange today.
I just wanted to say that who ever does get this board, the art looks gorgeous. They won't be disappointed.
Did you already shipped my Crokinole Board? If so, could you please let me know the tracking number?
Any update on when these will be shipped out?
It's already 4 months past when these were supposed to be delivered, with almost no communication during that time (at least three emails that went completely unanswered).
Very poorly run campaign in my opinion.
The container is coming in early next week and we will get them right out! We are excited too!
So close, I can picture my board coming in soon. Hopefully...
I've e-mailed you twice and have not received a reply. I've not received my bag or clock yet.
Please let me know what is happening with them.
@Seth - Another week without my board or a reply from you (or Jeremy). Please do something.
Hey, Seth, seven more days have passed with no reply from you. Get in touch with me please!
@Seth - Jeremy did not contacted me until now. Could you please do something?
Seth, please take a look at my comment left on June 19, about not having received my board yet. I had also sent you a PM through Kickstarter concerning the same issue a week earlier. I have not heard back from you through email or PM, nor seen a response to my comment here. Thank you.
@ Tatiana - We have emailed you directly about your shipment to Brazil, Jeremy will communicate with you about it, I thought it had already gone out but I don't see the tracking # on your reward yet so perhaps not.
@ Joseph, the custom boards are completed and being loaded into the container for shipment this week, we will get them out in about 30 days as soon as the container arrives.
Anyone else needing anything send us a message here and we will get you helped ASAP.
I pledge the $95 tier but I didn't yet received the game, so I sent you a private message but until now I didn't received any answers. So could you please let me know when should I expect to receive it.
Any updates on the custom boards yet. Patiently waiting for any news, of course.
Received the second bag and extra discs I ordered through the Walk the Plank kickstarter. Thanks again!
Has there been any word on when the rest of the sapele boards will be shipping? I have already received the clock and the bag, but I'm still waiting on the board, extra discs, and the metal pegs and plastic tubing. I sent an message to Seth through KS last week, but I have not heard back from him yet.
I'm quite happy with the bag, but I'd like to echo Clark's comment. In my head, I was scoring box pouch to be on the outside of the bag (on the other side of the padding), but I understand that would probably increase the price a good bit.
My case arrived a few days ago, but it looks nice and works well. I might add a bit of padding in the interior pocket so the disc box doesn't hit the deck too hard.
Any news on the custom print boards yet?
Received the bag today! Looks great! The extra four discs are in the bottom of the shipping bag loose so keep an eye out for them!
Received my bag today. It works great and is so much better than the box I used to transport it in. Thank you!
Just delivered a bag to my parent's home for their board and they were very happy with it. It's much better than the box they had been keeping the board in. Thanks again for a great product.
@Seth just wanted to write a quick message letting you know my bag arrived a little while ago. Thank you for looking into the matter for me though. BTW, bag looks great.
Got my bags today and they look good. It fit my custom board perfectly and the shoulder strap makes it very easy to carry. If it holds up half as well as it looks, I will be VERY happy. I have a party to go to this weekend and this will make it much easier to take my board with me.
@James, just emailed you directly, we will get to the bottom of it!
Should I be concerned that I have not received my bag or even a tracking number? If so who should I contact?
@Tstommel, your tracking # shows those delivered on May 13 per USPS #9400110200883778114864.
@ Everyone else, we're glad you are getting your bags and we hope they will work for you. They are intended to have a little extra space in them so you can get your board in easily and it will fit all makes/models of premium boards. If you are feeling so inclined please consider posting a review of the bag at: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/327/crokinole/reviews
Got my bags today as well... Very Impressed. Thank you.
Received my bag today. Was very nicely made.
Thanks Andrew, I got one as well.
@Jeff, I received a FedEx delivery notice today for my bags.
Any updates on if the bags have started shipping?
Yeah, sure... you will send them out right away. I'm sure I heard that about 3 times already. It has been almost two weeks since you most recently said you would... Nope, I still don't have them.
@Anthony, your replacement board is Sapele so while we've made the label we cannot ship it out until we get the restock of the new boards. Another shipment is coming with the custom print boards. They are in production now and should be finished and shipping to us in a few weeks, then we will get it right out to you as soon as we receive it.
@Tstommel, we are sending out the missing and one damaged disc replacements (3Black+2Natural+1RedDisc) right away, sorry about that, I thought it had already gone out!
Any word on the replacement board that was supposed to be shipped to me?
Is anyone else struggling to get their missing and bad pieces replaced? I have even had a direct reply from Seth and still no pieces in my mailbox.
I am glad to hear all of the kinks are working out before my custom board is printed. :)
The bags are in port and we will be shipping them out probably early next week. The other boards (custom print boards and more Sapele) are in production now but won't be ready to ship for a few more weeks yet. It looks like late May or early June for final delivery of those. Sorry for the delay!
I had hoped to get the bag this week as well, as I have a small gaming "convention" in Delaware April 26-29.
