About

Risks and challenges

We have delivered hundreds of thousands of individual products to tens of thousands of Kickstarter backers across several funded campaigns. We have a few still to fulfill, in particular three that are all shipping in a month or two, and should be in the hands of backers before the end of the 3rd quarter, 2018.

All projects that are physically manufactured in another country (in this case, China), by another company (or in this case, several companies: one for tooling, another for plastic production, another for printed components), are going to be subject to potential delays.

However, we are launching this Kickstarter completely "China Ready" - which is our term to mean we are ready to send all the files to begin the mass production process. In other words, the game (including all the stretch goals we are prepared to reveal and offer) have been developed and we have nothing more to do for them, except transmit to our partner factories and keep tabs on their progress!

Furthermore, we are taking some new, additional steps to ensure we'll deliver on time that we have never done before. Namely, we have already begun the tooling process during this Kickstarter! This means that our timeline as shown above is slightly inaccurate - it reads that "tooling" begins in August, which is not true, as it's underway now. This tooling factory has estimated the tooling process will be complete in less than 3 months. IF that turns out to be accurate, then we could be several months ahead of our posted schedule! But if that does not come to pass, then hopefully the buffer we've built into our timeline will suffice to create a delivery by next July 2019, as planned.
