      @somonflex: It does have to be strictly fewer. You're right that it is challenging to make that happen, but at least the payoff is pretty big. 1 free rube for doing "nothing" is a nice reward.

      Hello, concerning the Giant Leech attraction (have fewer attraction on stage than other players to gain 1 rube), if everybody have the same number of attraction on stage, can I play this power ? Is it fewer or equal or strictly fewer ? Because in a 4 players game, it's impossible to have strictly fewer.

      @Krit: What's special is you score the attraction without having to pay for it. :)

      @overworld
      Yes it was the ring master pledge. Very unfortunately and just for a few meeples. I wished I never pledged for those, and get into this mess :(
      This was the game I actually was very invested in, wheb you were looking for ideas, so would be great to see it alive.

      @Dorte: Oh yeah, it looks like when we requested that the PledgeManager refund just your meeple item, they cancelled the entire order instead. We'll definitely get you your reward ASAP. Sorry Dorte. :(

      This was the message in october from you:

      Hi Dorte,

      Sorry again that you don't like the latest version of the meeples. :( I have requested the refund for you through PledgeManager so we'll have to wait for them to execute that. You should get an email from them but I'll also follow-up here when they inform me that it is complete.

      Thanks for your support on the campaign and we can't wait for you to get your copy of the game!

      @overworld you refunded the extra meeples (a few bucks) I bought but I still have a big pledge for the game - so I would very much appriciate getting the game - thanks!

      Was very much looking forward to this, one of th efirst ones I backed, so very sad to hear you just decided to not send me the reward. I really hope you clear this up

      @Dorte: I know of a couple folks in Denmark who have received their copies so I'd be surprised if any are still pending delivery. But for you, we refunded you per your request in October of last year so that's why we didn't send you a reward. :)

      Super if it is postnord that has the parcel. Then i can sort it out. I will contact them on monday.
      Thank you.

      Ladies and Gentlerubes, please bear witness to the never before seen "Unbelievable, flawless, magnificent, L-Legendary packing of this game!" It is an attraction on its own. Bravo Overworld games. I am impressed.

      @Lau: Oh sorry, Lau, the email you sent didn't have a question in it so I didn't know you were looking for a response. I'll ask the fulfillment company if they have any suggestions, but they will likely just advise you to call the post office. It looks like the number for Postnord is 0771-33 33 10. Have you tried calling them and asking them about it? What does this "packing slip" look like? I can give you some kind of receipt if the post office is looking for that. Let me know how I can help! -Brian

      Just unpacked my game. First of all I want say that this was not the parcel I paid customs for. It didn't have the associated paperwork attached to the box. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
      Now to the fun stuff. Great packaging! I loved that you used protective covers on the corners of the game box to keep it from getting squashed. That's attention to detail I have never seen before!
      Most importantly, what a beautiful game! The colours, the artwork, the meeples. Everything is wonderful!
      In short I'm incredibly impressed with the campaign. Count on me for the next one!

      @Overworld Games thank you for clearing that up I just got worried when I looked at the bottom of the box and saw that there are 48 barker cards

      @Jack: A list doesn't exist that I know of, but there are 36 Barker cards and 50 sleeves so you should have 14 extra sleeves.

    27. Jack Reyes Mad Gear Gang 4 Life on

      Is there a list of all the cards that come in the game i still have 14 cards sleeves for the normal cards not the attraction

      @Peter: Thanks for the update! We checked with the fulfillment company about your package and they said it'was waiting for you at your local post office. We sent you a Kickstarter message with the details so hopefully that is enough info to grab it.

      I have yet to receive my game. So perhaps the customs invoice was for another package.
      @Overworld Games, I'll let you know what happened once I receive the game.

      Just got mine in Australia - excellently packaged; only one other game was packaged with corner protectors.

      I've gone through the box and everything looks in order.

      Now to organise a get together with the gaming group.

    31. Steve Cotter on

      Recived my copy today in Brisbane Australia the way it was packaged was great. The tracking number stopped working at customs but Australia post messaged me yesterday with a different tracking number for it.

      @ThomasDN: Well I'm glad you asked! It will be an expansion and 2nd Edition of New Salem, which has been out of print for a little while and many folks have been begging us to make an expansion and re-print it. It's the same artist as Barker's Row but he's creating a world of witches and puritans. As you might have guessed by the style of illustrations in Barker's Row, he likes drawing spooky witches. :) You can sign up to be alerted of the launch at newsalemconstable.com but it's still quite a few months away. We'll let you know when we launch as an update to this campaign as well.

      @PH: Glad ya got it! I think we'll bump up Denmark, Sweden, Australia, and New Zealand to an earlier phase in the process for the next campaign since delivery in those countries is taking longer than expected. Yeah, we asked Peter in a PM about that customs fee. It was shipped from within the EU so he shouldn't have had to pay anything. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of that mystery.

      Picked up my game from the local post office this morning and it looks fantastic. Im do pleased that I chose the Felix version with the sleeves and playermat. Im gonna try and get this on the table this evening.
      @Peter I also live in Sweden and did not have to pay the new import fee from postnord. My package slip said its sent from the netherlands.

      @Jason: I have seen quite a few Australian tracking numbers that are hung up in customs. They say "customs completed" but then it takes a while before they are scanned at their next stop. I just checked for another Australian backer near Canberra and theirs was delivered today.

    41. Jason Cleal on

      Has anyone in Australia received their copy yet? Tracking hasn’t moved in over a week. I’m getting worried.

      Thank you for such a quick answer! :)
      It seems like a fancy way to say that there was something wrong when assembling this copy of the game :P
      Is there any posibility to get the missing meeple?

      About the color, I prefered them to be black, but I perfectly understand the reason they're white, so it's ok, they're very cool anyway

      @Esther: Ooh, you have a unique copy! Most have 4 of each of the 13 styles of meeples. Update 16 from back in October talks about the color change in detail but at a high level, the illustrations disappeared into the black meeples so we changed them to a lighter color so you could see Andrea's beautiful art on them.

      @Andrew: HAHA. We'll keep that in mind as a future variant edition. =) Actually, I think you should make that one! We'll back it and I'll let Clayton submit his picture for it.
