  • 3. Store Front Area: Players may assign dice here to purchase Items from the Store or gain a new Ambition (Secret Goal).

Shipping and our Retailers

The shipping table is below, while our Retailer FAQ is below that!

Risks and challenges

We recognize that there is always a risk when backing a new-ish publisher.
We also recognize our first two games took longer than we would have liked, but rest assured that we will handle everything with the highest level of professionalism. From our previous projects, we have learned so much about designing and publishing board games, as well as what we needed to do to improve, ensuring our backers and customers get the best experience possible. You can see a breakdown of our lessons here.

Before we pushed the launch button on Kickstarter, we made sure that every single detail had been addressed twice. And that our work on all of our other games past and present was caught up or done with enough time to give us a good deal of space for this great game.

In terms of worldwide shipping and fulfillment, we have done extensive research and spent a good deal of time discussing the pros and cons of every service we know to be used with other such designers/publishers like Mike Strickland of Outer Limit Games and Eugene Shenderov from This and That Games and feel confident now that moving forward our timetables for delivery and shipping will be more efficient and faster.

We are aware that there are some factors that are outside of our control, things that can delay the project, but we have given ourselves extra time to deliver the project in case of unforeseen issues and will be doing more regular updates post campaign to keep you involved in the process with us.

Having said that, we'll be transparent with you for every issue that might occur and how we are resolving them. Thank you all so much!
