Shipping Update #1
I know everyone has been waiting for this update. Sorry for the delay but we were at PAX South and I was waiting on a few emails back from fulfillment partners so that I could have as much information for everyone as possible. I know many of your are getting impatient, but please keep in mind that many of these things are out of my control at this point. Furthermore, keep in mind we are months ahead of schedule and that you will all be playing well before April/May of this year.
USA/CANADA and South America
As many of you have been commenting, USA and Canadian Shipments are going out every day and many have started receiving their games. I know some people have received their games because videos like this one have started cropping up:
Ship Naked has indicated that they expect everyone in this region should receive their tracking email by the end of this week (January 19th). Their email note follows:
"As of January 11,2018 , we are preparing to pick, pack, and ship Maximum Apocalypse reward packages out to you. We expect to begin shipping this coming week, January 19 2018. If we run into any snags, we'll provide an update to Mike Gnade and Rock Manor Games so they can let you know here. We’ll also provide them with another update once all picking, packing and shipping is complete. You should receive a shipping notification to the email you included in your survey or pledge manager when your package label is printed or scanned through the local facility.
Thank you for your support of Maximum Apocalypse and Rock Manor Games.
- Ship Naked"
I will post another update when I get confirmation that all packing and shipping is complete by Ship Naked. Please DO NOT message me about not receiving a shipping label yet.
I do not have direct contact with Unicorn Games, but I have seen in the comments that Ship Naked coordinated shipping with them so Aussie backers should start receiving labels and games throughout the next week or so as well.
UK, EU and Rest of World
When I last heard from Games Quest, they were waiting on Maximum Apocalypse play mats to start fulfillment. I sent them an email before I left for PAX South telling them that they had my authority to start fulfilling to everyone that didn't order a play mat, but my guess is that they want to do everything at once since I never got a response to that idea. I do have the tracking info for the play mats. The freight forwarder sent me a message stating: "The shipment arrived, in process of customs release, delivery is scheduled for Wednesday."
Assuming that the mats are received tomorrow, I would expect packing and shipping to start for everyone else some time next week depending on GQ's workload and backlog. If I hear anything significant on this front I will post another shipping update for this region.
Problems with your Shipment
If you've received your game and believe something is amiss, please message me on Kickstarter. I'm using it as my helpdesk since it is an easy way to track my responses. I've already gotten a few messages there and will get to them all, please just be patient as I work through them. It is very important to me that all of our Kickstarter backers are taken care of. Thanks again for supporting us on this platform!
