      We know everyone is anxious to their hands on this one so we just wanted to pop in to let everyone know that we checked in with the manufacturer and they are still on track as specified in our last update. We'll send a full update once they're on a boat!

      @John: Thanks for the support! The rubes will be on a tan meeple so they’ll look just like they do in the pictures in the latest update. They look awesome!

      I don't mind a month's delay for a more sturdy Strongman Tower.
      With the. Will the Rubes be white or black? Cannot wait for this game.
      Thanks for the update!

      We received a new version of the tower base and standee and it works smashingly well so the manufacturer is making new ones now. When those finish, they will open up all the boxes, add the new base and standee, shrink wrap them, and get these games on a boat!

      Once we get an estimated completion date, we'll send an update with the adjusted timeline and of course some pictures of the final copy!

      We received the production copy of Barker's Row and everything looks FANTASTIC! Except for the stability of the tower. We could not approve that one in its current state. :( We've already met with the manufacturer and came up with some possible fixes so we're now waiting for samples so we can choose the best one.

      Once we have an approved solution, they'll move forward adding it to every copy and we'll send a full update with the details on how it affects the timeline. This will delay us a bit, but it will be worth it. Thanks for your understanding everyone! -Brian

      Tiny update: A final copy was shipped out to us for one more check before it leaves the factory. Since we're less than a week away from Christmas, our postal system is overflowing with packages, so it might take a week for it to arrive.

      @bigduff: I just wanted to follow-up that we received an update today and found out there was a small issue that the manufacturer caught on the varnish used on the chipboard. Some of the chipboard edges looked a little messy so they are re-printing all of the chipboard. We can't have messy edges, now can we?! It shouldn't cause much of a delay and we are still on schedule.

      @bigduff: We haven't gotten any updates from the manufacturer lately, but we've asked for one earlier this morning and should hear back overnight. We haven't been told of any problems but we also haven't gotten the "all done" notice or the final production copy.
      We're still on track for a February delivery for everyone and we'll let you know if that changes at all but there's no reason to think it will yet!

      @Stephen: It sounds like you're as excited as we are about getting this thing out there! It's still in manufacturing so we don't have anything new to share. We haven't been informed of any further delays so it appears to be going smoothly.

      @Chris: It's moving along and we're still ahead of the original schedule but we're still in the manufacturing phase. We tried to send an update this morning but we weren't able to get images to upload and what's an update without images, right? We'll get that sent out soon.

      So how goes production? Any new information?

    22. Wanghis Khan on October 7

      Thanks for the work @kirkstarter - I preordered a game on CSI and will probably not do it again as I'm waiting for it before the other games in my order could ship. If anyone did the same with CSI's barker's row preorder through them, any other games they added in for free shipping will be held up awhile.

      @Creator - thanks for chiming in. I can't wait to give this one a go. I think I'll let the good folks at CSI know they should change the expected date so as not to annoy their customers.

      @Kirkster: I wish! Yeah, it's still in manufacturing so it definitely won't be ready to start selling in 11 days! :) You all will be the first to get your hands on it too.

      I saw Barker's Row on pre-sale at Cool Stuff ($28.99) and it shows an expected arrival date of October 15. As they just listed it today I can only assume that they got some bad info on the release as it isn't even finished manufacturing in China yet!

      All the China manufacturing plants are shut down this week for National Day but we're hoping to have a juicy update for you soon after they return! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Day_of_the_People%27s_Republic_of_China

      @Steve: There have been a few delays with manufacturing that we're trying to get an understanding of but we're still ahead of schedule. We'll send an update before too long when we've gotten an estimated manufacturing completion date. That will really help us estimate the rest of the schedule.

      Getting it in your hands before the end of the year is looking less likely but it's still possible. For now, we're keeping the pledge manager open in case anyone needs to update their address or modify their pledge.

      @Jason: Ha! We'll all remember back to the great tower marker debate of '17. Rest assured, the final markers fit beautifully. We don't have one in each color but we have a model of one in white and it fits like a glove. We think you'll be quite happy with them.

      Thanks to everyone who gave us feedback on them during the campaign!

      The whole prototype looks really good (cept dem clips)!! But I won't say anything about them clips... Still so funny remembering back to the great marker debate of '17, those were good days.

      I Wasn't gonna bring up those wooden stands for a bit either, good to know those aren't happening now. I'd definitely be interested in the future though. Thanks again guys!!

      Wow that's epic! I didn't realize we were getting so many meeps. So how many are in the extra bag I bought? Not an additional 52 yea??

      @John: Yep, everyone will be getting 52 meeples.

    43. John Irwin on July 26, 2017

      So are we getting 52 meeples instead of the 48 so that all 4 players can have 13 unique meeples? If not, how will that be broken up?
