IMPORTANT UPDATE: Manufacturing is Complete!
Happy Friday everyone!
Manufacturing was completed earlier in the month and we have ship departure dates from China. I don't quite have the ship names yet but will post them for you when I do. Here is our current ship/freight estimate:
- USA: Depart China on 2018-11-05 | Arrive USA Port Early December
- EU: Depart China on 2018-11-07 | Arrive EU Port Early December
- AU: Depart China on 2018-11-02 | Arrive AU Port Mid-November
Based on these arrivals and the hectic Christmas season, I think everyone should expect to receive their games in January.
Now this part is very important: Shipping & Fulfillment
I will lock down addresses in Pledge Manager in 2 weeks on Friday, November 9th around midnight.
To be clear, everything should be done in Pledge Manager at this point. Changing your address in Kickstarter does absolutely nothing!
If you've lost track of the information you've provided us, you can always login and check everything here: https://rock-manor-games.pledgemanager.com/projects/maximum-apocalypse-gothic-horrors-expansion/ .
If you need to change your address, please do so in Pledge Manager before November 9th. If you know you will be moving soon, please update your address to your new address now. If you don't know your new address or if you will be moving or end up moving early next year or if you need to hold your shipment for any reason, please message me directly on Kickstarter. I can manually update the addresses or shipping instructions in Pledge Manager for ShipNaked after their export. The most important thing is to make sure your address is correct now and make sure you notify me if anything changes.
Solo Expansion: Allies
I had some backers ask for more information on the new solitaire mode for Maximum Apocalypse. If you're a solo gamer, this mode doesn't change any fundamental rules form the game but it does introduce a new card type: The Ally
Basically, at the beginning of a mission you will choose to shuffle 3-6 allies into the monster deck. You can give these fine folks some of the resources you've scavenged for them to join you (giving you more storage and a new ability/action on their card). If your main survivor ever dies, you can switch to any currently alive Ally that you've recruited to continue the game. You can read more about the rules for the Allies Expansion in the rulebook if you're so inclined.
The Few and Cursed
We should finish up Art Production on the game based on the Few and Cursed comics (the 5th comic is on Kickstarter now) by the end of the year. I'm headed to Metatopia next weekend to give it some more testing but am very excited about the game and look forward to demoing it to the public at PAX Unplugged. It's definitely going to be our biggest and most ambitious title to date. Anyways, hopefully these images and concepts start getting you excited for the game in 2019.
