Well I'm about to pull out my hair as it's taken a whole week for the companies involved to get the shipment from Chicago to Milwaukee area (a 90 min drive) after it already cleared customs. I am always amazed at how America functions sometimes. So many incompetent middle-men...

Anyway, the good news is that a truck with the Coins, Bags, and Foam Dice will be at our warehouse this Friday between 12-3pm. I don't have the stuff in-hand at this moment so there is always a remote chance something else will delay things another day- but at this point we plan to start shipping Friday and work Saturday too. Hopefully the majority of our backers will have their rewards by the end of next week!

Thank you all again for your patience in all of this. Much of this has been out of our control, but at last it's here and we can all finally enjoy the products.

      @Amlloyd, please see the previous comment to yours. About 1 more week delay for backers to get their bags with the game/coins.

    2. Creator amlloyd on January 24, 2014

      any updates? Sill haven't received anything (USA)

    3. Creator Minion Games on January 20, 2014

      Ah just got this from the Germans... "Yes, the coins & bags have been shipped to Hamburg, we already sent the missing documents, translated the invoice and description into German and paid for customs and delivery company. The coins should be here very very soon..." -- so this week sometime they'll send the bags we're missing back to the USA via Air Mail. That's about a week delivery time.

    4. Creator Minion Games on January 20, 2014

      Still waiting on bags and coins to land in Germany. Anything more is just guesses.

      @minion Games any updates, does it look like it'll be more along 2 weeks or the 1 week?

    6. Creator Thuddelus on January 17, 2014

      Are there any news about the shipping and delivery to the backer within the EU?

    7. Creator Jason Speicher on January 14, 2014

      well, hopefully i'll get my package before the 1 year funding date Feb 04, it's worth the wait, and i don't think i'd get it to the table very quick, until i get my more serious gaming group together.

      Yes the velvet bags we had made are 5x7" which is much much larger then the others that went out and are brighter colored. If you'd like to opt for some similar sized but not so bright (and missing orange and yellow) bags to get your order shipped a bit sooner, you can email us directly with your request. But I suspect Hegemonic will start shipping in a 1-2 weeks.

    9. Creator Jason Speicher on January 13, 2014

      Oh well, are these velvet bags slightly larger than the others?

    10. Creator Minion Games on January 13, 2014

      Well after some more investigation, it seems that the China printing house shipped ALL the bags to Germany instead of just a portion for the EU deliveries. That delivery is due in port there on the 18th and then Attacke needs to get it and reship to the USA (hopefully I get the China factory to pay for over-night delivery). But in the end it looks like Hegemonics will be going out near the end of this month. Sorry. Keep in mind though that even if we had them this week, we wouldn't be shipping as we have SO many orders and even though I have 4-5 people working every day on it for 8-12 hours, we're only getting about 10% of the orders out each day. So I wouldn't even be able to address sending Hegemonic till next week anyway. So maybe this will only cause a true delay of a week more (and the lowering of the priority in the grouping of things we ship).

    11. Creator Jason Speicher on January 13, 2014

      :( so I wait yet again.

    12. Creator Minion Games on January 12, 2014

      The velvet bags (the bane of my existence these last few months) didn't show with the delivery we got - so I think they were sent to Indian by mistake. We'll get them routed back here and start shipping Hegemonics late this week. In the mean time we're working hard on the other kickstarter deliveries like the Coins and Foam dice.

    13. Creator Minion Games on January 9, 2014

      It's not the truckers that upset me - it's the logistics people in the middle screwing things up.

    14. Creator Micah Wilson on January 9, 2014

      I think we can give truckers some slack this week.

    15. Creator Minion Games on January 9, 2014

      Oh, if it's wrong, let me know if you update it as the final shipping worksheets are already exported.

    16. Creator Minion Games on January 9, 2014

      Everyone make sure Backerkit.com lists your current address! If a package comes back, you will be required to pay shipping a second time!
