      Weeks later. Yet neither of my 2 mats have arrived. Games Quest have single handedly soured this otherwise excellent Kickstarter campaign. Really hope we can get stuff sorted. They weren't exactly cheap either!

      Giancarlo just reviewed MA, if anyone’s interested:

      7.5/10. A bit lower than what I would have given, but hey...

      @all - update. yesss... a play mat arrived today, @ Mike - The mat looks great, I cant wait to open the full game now. Though a slight snag. There should have been two play mats. ..... I'll raise yet another ticket.

      @Bálint: Good idea, perhaps I should give it a try.

      I got my game after 2 month delay(yaaay) on my old address,luckily mom get it. based on pictures no damage, but I will see when I go home next weekend.

      My tactic was that I harassed GQ heavily on fb chat, and they were more responsive there than on their stupid ticket system.

      I have to say that the quality of Games Quest is really lacking. I wrote them weeks ago and received this mail:

      Thank you for contacting us regarding Maximum Apocalypse.

      If you have already received your game but not your playmat then please do not worry - this is being shipped to you separately due to its awkward size and the shape.

      Having spoken to our fulfilment team I understand that the playmats are due to be shipped within the next week, so you should receive yours very soon. Once it has been dispatched from our UK warehouse you will be sent a shipping notification email, which will include a delivery estimate and any available tracking information for this.

      Please let us know if you have any further queries concerning your order and we will be more than happy to help!

      Kind regards,

      But I haven’t received the mat yet. Still missing. I would be glad if Mike could intervene with them and kindly remind them to fulfill their service.

      @ All - Ok. Interesting news receive, did I (yoda?) I got an email from Gamesquest, saying it was my fault for the delay in the missing mats. Not sure if that is BS or not. But here is what they said.

      Every time I raised an email it generate a new ticket, thus my query kept moving down the pile, whilst the newer queries got sorted. So they recommended that refrain from emailing once I had raised the original ticket. Although that was over 4 weeks ago. So I find that hard to believe.

      anyway, Gamesquest advised me to raise one query in future rather than keep chasing it.

      Anyone else got / had a similar experience?

      Still waiting for my playmats from gamesquest. No chance for a while now, as 7th continent and a couple of other huge games have arrived at gamesquest for distribution. Poor service.

      Can't believe people are still waiting for play mats. Appalling service from GamesQuest.

      Hi. I just noticed the rulebook contents says the game comes with 13 Mission Cards, but mine only came with 12 (0-11). Am I missing one or is the rulebook wrong?

      I know i'm very late in asking this, but where are the final PnP files? Thanks.

    15. Flo1983 on March 15

      @Balint..... thx are missing your game...thats worse than the playmat.....did GQ never reply to your ticket? But i am sure the day will come you finally get it....and its worth the wait :)
      My ticket for the playmat is now open for nearly 40 days without reply.......but that happened to me with Vampire Hunters, Green Horde and Rising sun (all delivered by GQ)......and after 2 month of emails and tickets and horror thoughts.....they finally arrived......but the Playmat was my FISRT and ONLY still open issue with Gamesquest........

      I received an email 9 days ago stating ticket had been opened, and would be viewed by a support rep asap, but due to an unusual large volume of queries and staff problems I should have a response in 13 working days, so hopefully I should hear something around end of next week.

      Anyone had any luck with gamesquest replying to missing mat tickets? My ticket was opened 13 days ago and still no update even though their SLA is supposedly 7

      I notice that in 4.scenario.

      The set up said total of antidote is 6 but the cards have only

      No card is missing total counting is 60 scavenging card.

      Do I got one swap card or i got misprint ?

    22. Andy Quiles on March 10

      Well im sold on the new KS already. The more expansions the better! I would love to see a werewolf boss and some additional content for the current expansions too (maybe another kaiju/robot :)...

    23. Ryan Miller on March 9

      @Mike Sir, you already have my money. I just read through every bit of the new campaign and I am so excited. I absolutely love this game. The day and night cycle I think is a fantastic idea. And both of the new monster decks look amazing as well as dinosaurs, which I voted for in the last campaign. Overall I can’t wait for this game. I will probably pick up the playmate this time as well. I’m excited for all the stretch goals to come!

      @Mike Gnade: can you show us the kickstarter preview link for the future expansion Gothic Horrors? You posted a link on but it only send us on the kickstarter main page...

      Thanks! And can’t wait to back that expansion later this month!

    26. Flo1983 on March 8

      still no gamemats....ticket open now for 34 days without reply from GQ.......

      Correct Olly, Mike is the project manager. But you’re suggesting that he has control over GamesQuest and that’s just ludicrous. Don’t punish the wrong people for someone else’s screw up and shortcomings.

      You will get your mats, it’s not game breaking without it. I’ve played the game almost 40 times already and haven’t missed the mat one bit. I understand it’s frustrating but your anger is pointed at that wrong person.

      @all - I know its not a shop, but still annoys me that some have got both their mats and games, some have got games only, whilst others *according to the comments) have received nothing.

      @Rich - Unfortunately, @Mike is the creator and project manager. as such he is my focal point. I want to back his Gothic Cards, but if he can't control this project, how can I be sure the next one will go well?

    29. Olly - Please Expect Delays
      on March 7

      Still no mats. No email, no GamesQuest response. I'm gonna open the KS box and check the cards at weekend. I cant keep waiting for @Mike's delivery to complete

      The playmats will come guys. Don’t blame the creator for the terrible job of the distribution company. The game is still 100% playable without them. Just play the game, enjoy it, and the mats will get there when they get there.

    32. Olly - Please Expect Delays
      on March 6

      @ Mike - I am happy to support your next kickstarter, but you haven't finished delivering this one yet. I am still outstanding 2x play-mats. I have raised the tickets as you suggested but still nothing.

      I will not consider supporting the Gothic cards if you continue to use GamesQuest. Sorry but I haven't even opened the box yet, as this game is for my Son and I because it is his present and we are still awaiting the playmats.

      Am i the only one who wants to see additional content for the current apocalypses in the new KS?

    37. Ricardo Oliveira on March 5

      Finally got to try the game. Probably the most polished games I've got from Kickstarter, love the feeling of the cards and everything else. The game plays great, can't wait to try more scenarios, specially the Kaiju expansion. Probably the most fun co-op game I've played since Pandemic.

      Hey! For future expansions I think it'd be really cool if you included dividers for the new characters and cards :-) Also were we supposed to get a bandit divider in our game? Really enjoying the game so far

      Finally got mine in Australian (because I didn't complete the pledge manager properly). Game looks great. Thanks Mike.
