      @portal dragon - just made my own copy of palm island from the print and play files - having a lot of fun playing! looking forward to taking this on summer vacation soon - and hopefully it'll result in a few extra pre-orders coming in from family and friends

      one question - will the final printed version also have the faint image of the palm trees behind the resource costs on the cards? it makes them slightly harder to read, and doesn't seem to add anything

    2. James M.

      @David: Same here. Fortunately, with the games going from the manufacturer by air instead of ground/sea, things should be quicker than usual, at least compared to most games I've backed.

      In terms of the timeline, let's see... The May 2 update said the manufacturer expected to complete production by mid-June. The May 23 update indicated deck sleeves were being made, but game production hadn't begun. The June 2 update noted that proofs were in and everything was ready for full production. The comment here on June 15 (it appears) suggests the game still hasn't gone to print yet though. So I could be wrong of course, but at this point, I think we're looking at production being finished in late June assuming it starts pretty soon and doesn't take long.

      What I'd be interested in knowing is the estimated time line post-production. What kind of time frames are we looking at to get games from the manufacturer to the distributor, and then from there to us? I'm not asking for dates -- we can't estimate those until we know more about production. I'm looking for something like "once the games leave the manufacturer, backers should have them in about X weeks". I know it'll get here when it gets here, and that shouldn't bee *too* much longer, but sometimes waiting is the hardest part.

      Also looking forward to the game! Hoping to get it before leaving on summer vacation!

      @Steve Larocque - I will let you know when I have more information.

      Cool, thx for the info, as I said, I’m just too excited to get my game ;)

    7. Portal Dragon 3-time creator on

      @François Lake - Not as of yet. I will let you know when I have more information. You will get a decent heads up so that I can make sure all address changes are made before I lock them down in backerkit.

      @PortalDragon. Any news on timing of shipment yet? Or at least an approximation? Can’t wait to get my game! Cheers :)

    9. Portal Dragon 3-time creator on

      @God-keizer - Yes. I will send you details.

      Thanks for the communication! I can't wait to get the game!

      Sorry for the delay in response. Pre-Orders can be found here:

      @BGR Karanaida: Sorry, didn't mean to be snarky. I am logged in on my laptop and i have a preorder button showing right above "Created by" on the upper half of this page. It just could have been that you didn't see it, so i wanted to point you to it. Sorry for trying to help. Didn't know that you can't see this button on the app as i'm surfing "old-stile".

    14. Karanaida

      @Unisus, the snark isn’t necessary, the preorder button doesn’t show - as already pointed out - on the app if you’ve backed it. Excuse the hell out of me for asking. Sorry to have bothered you.

    15. Adam Singer on

      Great to see some progress! keep it up! :)

    16. DaisyMonster on

      To see the preorder once you have already backed, you may need to log out of kickstarter. I couldn’t figure out why everyone was talking about a preorder button between the campaign and the pledge manager, and realized that because I had backed, I wasn’t presented with a preorder button on the app version. Once I logged out, there it was! Don’t know if that’s universal or not, though.

    17. Unisus

      @BGR Karanaida: did you try that blue "Pre-Order" button up there?

    18. Karanaida

      @Portal Dragon, is there a place to preorder this, since BackerKit has been locked down? I’m thinking my mom is going to want a copy. I maaaay have “accidentally” gotten her into gaming...oops lol XD

    19. Dan Parr

      Started to panic that mine was gonna take the slow road from China, then remembered I opted for EU friendly. Phew. I printed a basic copy in black and white (the works colour printer died last week, so had to settle) and have loved it! Can't wait for the real one now 😀

    20. Portal Dragon 3-time creator on

      @Andrew Phillips - The air shipping only has to do with the shipment to the distribution center. The shipments from China will be sent in a variety of ways so I cannot say how they will be sent to you from there.

      Andrew Phillips on

      Can I ask a question on shipping... There were two EU shipping options: the EU friendly one (presumably via an EU distributor) and the cheaper non-friendly one.

      If I went for the latter, does that mean the game will be coming via air to me direct from China? Or is the upgraded air transport only for the EU distributed option?

    22. Ryan Miller on

      Plus how often do we adults get to color with crayons? Lol

    23. Ryan Miller on

      @james M I actually just drew all of the cards lol the symbols are pretty simple and I just put my own spin on the art, saved me a lot of ink and I feel like I added my own touch. Some games like this one are pretty fun to just draw the pnp because there aren’t tht many components

    24. James M.

      Yes, the PnP looks easy enough to make, but I was hoping for a printer-friendly / low-ink version of it. The full color one is great and all, but I'm not keen on using that much ink for something that's going to be replaced by the printed version in a month or two. I'm stilling hanging in there for the physical copies right now.

      @Richard Stecher - The link was sent to all backers $5 and over once they confirm their pledge survey on BackerKit.

    26. Richard Stecher

      Where is the latest link for the PNP? I can't seem to find it in the updates or the campaign page

      DocZagreus on

      I know we expected the game earlier, but there is still the pnp, that for this game, is a no brainer to make!
      (just print the cards and cut ^^)

      I also think october is quite safe.
      I've pledged the game to play it during my vacation this summer in July and I'm quite disapointed that it won't be possible.
      I know that delays are quite normal on kickstarter but this is a typical summer holiday game and I was hoping it would be delivered on time.
      Well... that's the wayit is...

      I know that delays are standard, and there have been a couple with this one, but I think you'll safely have this before October

      Just got around to print out the pnp files. Amazing game ;) super simple yet different every time.
      I only hope i can bring the real deal to my vacation in July instead of those wobbly paper sheets

      @Daisymonster, buhaha I totally agree!

      No worries Jon.
      No one's life is on hold while this is being done.
      Thanks for keeping us in the loop. That is the most important. We don't mind waiting as long as communication is made.
      Relax. :-)

    37. DaisyMonster on

      The day there aren’t delays in a manufacturing process is the day this universe collapses in upon itself in astonishment and a new, weirder universe takes its place.

      @Puzzling Pixel Games - Liya International. They have done Star Trek Ascendancy, Super Dungeon Explore, Memoir 44, Cthulhu Wars, Dungeons & Dragons: Tyrants of the Underdark, Ghostbusters (1 and 2) and GKR Heavy Hitters. They do good work and I am still excited to work with them. The restructuring of their US office combined with the loss of labor returning from the holiday really threw in some delays though.

    39. Padraig on

      It's not a KS if it's not delayed 😊 No worries. As already said your communicating which makes it so much easier for me. I prefer to be told sooner that it'll be delayed than after it already has and having to chase you for information.

    40. Puzzling Pixel Games on

      Hey (re: delays), at least your communicating! By the way, I couldn't find it, who's the printer?

      Delay out of your hands. No worries from me.

    42. Skazz on

      I so hope that my copy arrive in July. Go to vacation at the end of July would so cool to play this at the beach

    43. Portal Dragon 3-time creator on

      @john coss jr - No. Sadly there have been many delays which has pushed production back as outlined in the updates I have posted. It is looking more like late June or early July at this point.

    44. john coss jr on

      Is shipping starting soon ?

    45. Portal Dragon 3-time creator on

      @Kickstarter Addict - Sorry for the delay but it looks like you figured it out. There are multiple resources on some cards so upgrade them to make more efficient use of each card.

    46. Kickstarter Addict

      Thanks Nathan. I figured that out just after I commented. I was so happy to get another viewing but so rushed and not thinking I wasn't making sense of things. They came out pretty nice. Kinda jealous, makes me want to print some but I know better than do to do that at this time when so busy. It will arrive soon enough.

    47. Missing avatar

      Nathan on

      @Kickstarter Addict - Some cards have more than one resource on it. So with the max of 4 resource cards you are able to have 6 (or more) resources.

    48. Kickstarter Addict

      DUH !!! Cards can have multiple resources. So sorry, think I'm being worked to hard. That's why having this game will be great, it's playable in bathroom, I'm going to getting a case of IBS, I may want to think up another excuse but lately those are my only breaks.

    49. Kickstarter Addict

      13:59 - 14:14 Housing card, no # in corner like others. Thought I see the card # so you know which one. Sorry.
