Production well underway!!

Posted by Jondi Soper (Collaborator)

 Our communication wasn't great up through June, but we promised that we will keep you up to date from now on...and we will stick to that. Here is the first, of many updates we will give you, right up until the day Rescue Polar Bears arrives at your door. 

As you all know, there was a problem with the Fire Dice and, as such, that has set production back on the game and delivery. We are working to get the dice issue fixed. However, the production on the rest of the game components is well underway and we got some video and photos from the factory!! We wanted to share the pictures with you all because we were very excited to see Rescue Polar Bears coming together and we knew you would be too!

 We do not have an updated shipping estimate. We are working closely with the factory to get a more solid idea of when ALL the game components will be finished and the game will be completely assembled. Once everything is assembled, the game then have to make its way from China to our warehouse. However, we anticipate the production of the game to be finished VERY soon and then it will be on it's way to us! 

We will be sure to keep you all in the loop! Until next time...have a BEARY great day!

      The videos and photos from the factory are not completely new. They were taken when the game first hit the line. The factory asked for a shipping mark, so production is very close to complete at this point, including the clear dice. We have asked for pictures and and awaiting confirmation on when they will be shipping the product to us.

      As soon as I have more information, I will post another update! This is a completely new process for me! So I'm learning as I go and I am being very transparent with you all on that fact as well! But the game will be hitting the water very soon!

      Shouldn't production have been done, already? I thought we just needed the one dice fixed?
      I call shenanigans!!

      Those pictures do not look complete at all. It looks like the paper is printed, but it has yet to be glued to the chipboard, dried, climatized (or whatever the right word is to acclimate to the humidity without warping) and then die cut so the parts can be punched.

      I guess my wording in this update was strange. As you can see from the above pictures, the game components are finished. The factory has not sent us pictures of the bears, so I don't know if those are complete or not. But everything else is complete (with the exception of the dice). We have emailed them to find out about the bears and to request pictures. We will continue to keep the backers in the loop.

      From the previous update was given the impression everything was complete except the dice

      @Alexis - We sent an email to the factory yesterday and this is what they said:
      "Our supplier told us that it is "earth-friendly resins". But the resins isn't recycled material. it is similar to the stone and ceramic."
      I hope this helps.

      @Mohimmed Al-Mohanna - We don't have any photos of the bears at this time. As soon as we do, I will be sure to share them!

      @Alexis, I honestly don't have an answer to your question, and I didn't see it before. But I will see if I can get answer for you.

      Will this game be using recycled components or earth friendly resins? I asked several times during the campaign and never got a response.
