Packing Progress

All components are in. Packing progresses. As of the writing of this update, Sunday at noon, we've got 750 games packed and stuffed into envelopes. That puts us over halfway done.

My goal is to have everything packed and ready to go by the time the deposit hits the bank on Tuesday. At that point, we'll download the final backer report, print out shipping labels, and get everything in the mail on Wednesday & Thursday. The first backers should get theirs by this coming weekend, which will put it about a month earlier than I anticipated, and about 17 days after the project funded.

Realistically, that's as early as it can go, without shipping things before the deposit hits the bank. As it is, we're playing fast and loose with the funding, driving up debt to get this out early, and using the deposit to pay that off.

I applied every lesson I've learned from every Kickstarter project that I've screwed up, and this is the result. I'd call this a success, and will endeavor to repeat this kind of performance on future projects.

      @David. I'm pretty sure it is. The plastic bags in the top pic are the packages (outside the envelope they'll be shipped in). The bottom picture shows the piles of components (before assembly).

      Could you post the picture of the final package? It seems to me too big for a microgame, I'm afraid about customs problems... I though it was one envelope shipment.

      Amazing job, and amazing planning.

      Mr. Ferguson, you are one crazy guy!

      Having said that... Black Sheep! I want my space piratey ninja goodness! (OK, no ninja).

      Congrats! Don't put yourself too far out in getting things quickly- don't want you to get into trouble, just want you to keep delivering good games!

      I'll probably get it before weekend since I'm right up the street in Bothell, WA. Quick turn around! Good work.

      Wow. You're making a lot of other Kickstarter project creators look bad. I recommend you take a few months off before delivering, stop posting any updates, occasionally write 1-line comments like, "still working on it," and start 6 more Kickstarter projects before delivering.

      Otherwise, you might get lynched by the other creators...

      Just kidding, of course, and thank you for your integrity, professionalism, and high quality standards! You're exactly the kind of project creator I like to support. I hope this new career path takes you farther than you dreamed!

      Sweet baby Jesus!
      That's what I call a well oiled machine! I'm impressed!
      Can't wait to get the game, and for the next kickstarter (of course)!

      WUT. You're insane. This will be the fastest I've ever gotten something on Kickstarter, by FAR. ��

      The only real mistake in life comes from not learning from mistakes. Way to go, Mr. Ferguson!
