Can the folded space insert hold premium sleeves ?
Are you TMG going to do some testing with the rule book and components before final printing? I ask this because Steam Works had components that where not even listed or mentioned in the rules, The Flow of History had a card that was written very awkwardly, and the rule book for Dungeon Roll Card game is useless, it doesn't even say what to do with half the cards! I like your games, but you need help with rules. Maybe you could find a way to use your kickstarter community for help.
Spiele Offensive offers the standard game for 39,99 € in germany. Delivery November 2018, No shipping costs for germany...
TMG hasn't pre-sold to any retailers or distributors. I cant say if Game Brewer has or hasn't for the European edition.
You don't back Kickstarters to save money. If you only backed the standard reprint there really wasn't any point, just check Orleans. This campaign was all about the Deluxified version which isn't going to retail.
That is a darned cheek against us backers, if you will pardon the expression.
The preorder price is now 40 € (incl. shipping to Germany) but still too cheap! We paid for the retail version 45 $ + shipping (6 $ for Germany)!
And the offer is not a clearence, it's long before fulfillment.
Does it mean that you sold Spiele Offensive the retail version for 10 €?
One can preorder the standard version of Gentes on the internet already. For 20 €.
@blackholexan: That's par-for-the-course for TMG. They do great development and have an excellent production quality, but they are abysmal when it comes to communication.
Either they don't value customer service very much or they don't believe that open and effective communication is a part of it.
For me the biggest disappointment is their lack of honesty regarding it. They are well past the bounds that they set for themselves and promised us at the bottom of the Kickstarter page as well as two weeks after they promised "very soon". Just be upfront with your intentions. Red Raven tells us that they are just going to ignore the page and not really update and most are satisfied with that. Don't promise what you can't deliver.
...nearly 50 days withou ANY sort of updates....that's underwhelming
No updates in a while... that's sad :(
TMG constantly has other In S's going on. Right now Guong so when that happens old project hit the backburner while they push and respond to questions and issues for their games needing pledges.
Got my return slip a couple days ago. Shipped back yesterday.
Decided to ask them directly about the update. Reply: "There will be one very soon - just waiting on a couple of things from our manufacturer!"
I also have not received a return slip despite being told 11 days ago that I would receive one.
“All is well” is the least TMG should do as described...
Any info about the exact date for the update?
@Austin Lin: I'm in the same boat. I contacted them and they told me the whole mailing slip situation. I contacted 5 days later, no response. Contact two days after that on Friday and still no response. Not a good sign.
@Austin Lin: I’m in the same situation — no return slip yet. I expect we’ll get the return labels soon...
I ordered the deluxified Chimera Station full game and they sent me a regular one. They were supposed to send me a return mailing slip to return it and they will send me the deluxe version. Well, its been a weekand I still have not received the mailing slip and I am stuck with this regular copy. What is the deal TMG? Why the delay on your mistake.
One week untill the new update, hopefully no delays so they can use some of those buffer days to ship it sooner :-)
Just got my add on Chimera Station in the mail. Can’t wait to play it!
@Helder: The shipping cost is their actual cost to ship from their US warehouse. It’s expensive to mail things overseas. I got Chimera Station ad an add on here in the US and shipping wasn’t bad.
@Helder Look literally 4 comments below you...
Are you sure that want to sell add on's? Really? I add 289usd of add on's and you add 410usd for postage to Europe (pledge was 59usd with 15usd for postage). Really? Are you nuts? Are this true, pay more for postage that for games? I began to feel that wanna give up of this pledge... The are more backers with same problem. No answer find. Can you give some information about postage please?
Can you tell me please what is the end's date of pledge manager?
There are some download buttons at the end of the main page , but the german rules file, for example, ist damaged. Can anybody fix it, please?
@Heath It's on the main campaign page, right underneath the Gaming Rules video.
Has the rule book been posted anywhere yet?
Plus if you did buy the add on with the exorbitant international shipping, you'd also be paying for customs fees when it arrives.
The add ons should really have been advertised as for the US only.
@Crispin: The exorbitant shipping was addressed before - it’s their actual shipping cost. I ordered something extra in the US and the shipping wasn’t bad. Unfortunately, it’s expensive to ship to other countries from the products’ current location in their US warehouse.
Well, I just did the Pledge manager and as expected there were no real issues, the project looks fine.
I added some Extras, Amun-Re and Eminent Domain, total cost $105. Well why not?
The additional postage was $200!!!
How is that sane, what are you guys doing?
As I said, the KS is fine, but the additional postage for extras just lost you that sale.
Sorry for my english :P
Need a favor. Could you check if my pledge is complete? In Kickstarter it appears to be a $10 pledge but i totally paid $139. Thanks!
Lol. Yeah, no kidding. Relax, people!
Guess everyone can chill out now.
Their communication may be a bit lacking, but they’ve deliver on every project I’ve backed and the games have always been well made....
Glad I dodged a bullet on this one. Only pledged $1, and didn't upgrade. The lack of communication is downright unacceptable.
While TMG generally releases good games, their ability to communicate after a campaign is some of the worst in the industry. Keep trying their support email, and someone should respond. You may have to head over to BGG as well. Sadly, you have to track them down by multiple means.
oh-sorry! I thought I did not received, but I got the mail and already finished.
I did Not Received the pledge manager
I got an answer on BGG that they will provide an update soon.
Same question I posed at Downfall: do we know whether TMG is still in business? Because it sure doesn’t appear like it.
Yeah, sorry Lance and Michael, but this is a pretty pathetic way to run a Kickstarter, especially since you are professionals in the industry!
There is absolutely no excuse for your complete absence from Gentes and Downfall for 3 weeks, as the announced deadline for Gentes passed, and to my knowledge, you have not even confirmed a PM deadline for Downfall (some believe it closed on 4/15 as well, but with no word from you guys, who knows?)
It hurts me to see so many people with questions that remain unanswered or need help with their pledge. TMG really dropped the ball.
and yet for the last day still no respond from any of TMG.
Same over at Downfall. It’s been almost 3 weeks since they posted a comment and they have not responded to any questions since then. No one even knows when the Downfall PM will end, and complete silence from TMG. WTF?
I get that a sort of radio-silence is quite normal right after a campaign ends but the PM is closing in 2 days e we have still questions about that without answers. It is a bit annoying, frankly.
We are almost at the deadline of the pledge manager and the multilingual edition mistery is still unsolved?
Is it possible to have an update on this issue so those who would like to edit their pledge could do that on time?
