Shipping Update #1

Posted by Mike Gnade (Creator)

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. 

Australian/New Zealand

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!

      In case anybody doesn't know: the Kaiju expansion comes packed with the main game. It's just in its own small box. And the way the game is packed you might miss it so pull out the wads of paper used for cushioning if you don't see it because I almost missed mine.

      @Ryan, my tracking notice stated 2 boxes.... base game and KS expansion pack...
      My tracking shows the package at DHL office in Raleigh for 5 days on it's way to USPS in Raleigh..... I could have crawled the box over faster...hehe....

      woo that video looked great...I also cant wait for the shipment..=^_^=

      Damn that looks super amazing, cant wait for my copy.

    5. Sunny Neuroshima on

      @Mike Gnade, so going from your comments, can we expect the Kaiju expansion to be packed separately from the base game?

      That unboxing video is 26 minutes long and he doesn't actually open the box until over 7 minutes in. Epic.

      @mike : I had a question about the rules :
      In the scenario you showed in your last update, the point was to reveal all tiles (+fuel the van).
      Is it possible to win this scenario without facing the boss by using the recon ability to reveal the tile without triggering the boss himself?

    7. Ryan Miller on

      Thanks for clarifying! I think that’s the monsters I’m most excited about!

      @Scott: It's only Games Quest (UK, EU, ROW) whose play mats were routed incorrectly (that I know of).

    9. Scott D

      So regarding the playmates. Is it only certain countries that didn’t get them or is it all playmats?

    10. Mike Gnade 6-time creator on

      @Ryan/Graham - yes KS backers should get that expansion. After you receive your shipment, please check your order in Pledge Manager and let us know if anything is missing. My guess is that for that video he just opened the base box.

    11. Graham on

      @Ryan Miller - Good spot. I don't remember seeing anything Kaiju related either.

    12. Ryan Miller on

      Super excited for this to finally show up. I have one question tho. I watched the whole unboxing and he never got to the kaiju expansion? I thought I recall that being part of the Kickstarter as an expansion ? Or am I wrong and it is just a planed expansion ?

    13. Apocalypse Nerd on

      And let me add excellent job getting the project shipped ahead of schedule, it’s a rare thing on KS.

    14. René Schultze

      Moin. Ah, now only a little while longer and I can play the game! :)
      Hoping that there will be news of the expansion Gothic Horrors and Set Up A Watch soon.

      DaveMann812: Jealous;)

      I got my notice from Ship Naked about a week ago I and patiently waiting for my package. But one side note, I’ve had many KS projects use Ship Naked and they are terribly slow and they use DHL and DHL from my experience sucks.

      @Marc Burrage: I’m not upset about people being excited for their games. I totally get it. Not everyone scrolls through or sees all of the comments, so I like to save important info for updates.

      Hi Mike, in response to " 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." It's just lack of comms - it had been nearly 3 weeks since you last updated people, and as some people were starting to get their games, it's unsurprising we might be a bit needy :) Even if you don't have an update, just posting a comment once a week shouldn't be too much to ask.

      Ship Naked sent me a tracking number. I'll get my goodies in 2 days.
