August Update: Back from GenCon

Posted by Mike Gnade (Creator)

Greeting and Happy Friday everyone!  We got back from GenCon late on Monday this week (10 hour drive) and have been recovering and catching up on things. GenCon was fantastic and we got a lot of good feedback on the games we're working on and had a blast demoing Set a Watch and Gothic Horrors.

My favorite thing that I saw at GenCon was a 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse loss.  The group spent a lot of time stunning the horsemen but then when they got to 3 in play they didn't have enough time to kill any of them.

Manufacturing Proofs

Right before I left for GenCon, I received manufacturing proofs for the core set, Kaiju Rising, Jurassic Perils, and Gothic Horrors.  I shot a quick unboxing video for Gothic Horrors below:

Maximum Apocalypse and Kaiju Rising have both been approved so that production will start by the end of this month.  I'm working through Gothic Horrors and Jurassic Perils.  I've found a few changes but for the most part they should be approved by early next week.  Our estimated timeline is still approximately:

  • August 2018: Approve all manufacturing proofs, Start Production Run
  • August - September 2018: Manufacturing 
  • October - November 2018: Freight Shipping  
  • January - February 2019: Fulfillment

Wave 1 Shipping

We've gotten a lot of emails about backing only at the base game level and not getting your game because our estimated reward delivery for that was August 2018. We only shipped games to people that selected WAVE 1 Shipping (it will say Wave 1 in parenthesis on your Pledge Manager receipt if you selected this).  If you didn't select Wave 1, then we assumed that you wanted to the newer printing in the taller box, new bullet tokens etc.  I thought we covered all of these issues and questions in this update.  Some people have accused us of charging more for shipping early as well.  WAVE 1 Shipping only cost more if you were splitting up shipments (i.e. you backed at the completionist level and are getting expansions along with the core set).  If you ordered only the core set and are in the USA (the EU stock is gone), we still have some original kickstarter editions that we can ship to you. Just message us on Kickstarter and note that we will not be sending you any of the corrected cards (antidote and laser drones as seen in the video above). Otherwise, please be patient as we work to get the new version printed and shipped to our fulfillment centers.

      Gothic Horrors backers will be getting new bullet tokens

      @Jared Smith: yes it is. The picture in the update are all the components for gothic horrors.

      And when was a taller box mentioned? I don't remember that information being available before the pledge manager, as I definitely would've wanted to get a taller box for the base game.

      @Mike: You've said previously that Gothic Horrors backers will be getting the new bullet tokens as well though. Is that not correct?

      Thanks for the update!

      @Robert L. Yates: content wise the only difference is the older bullet tokens and taller box. If you are getting gothic horrors, you will receive corrected cards as seen in the unboxing video.

      Great news! Can't wait to play with Maximum Apocalypse !

      Now it makes it feel like it was more about clearing your unsold old stock rather than providing something to backers.

      It really wasn't clear, I know I had plenty of questions - one was if I would be missing out on anything or if anything was different. I was told no. I had no idea I was going to miss out on the bigger box and newer tokens that I pledged for - otherwise I would have declined and saved on shipping. Again, I asked, but was told nothing would be different/missing.
