"Rest of the World" Shipping update
I just got news this morning that the Rest of the World shipment left on Saturday for VFI. I contacted VFI they have received the shipment, we confirmed all of our details and I hope the individual shipments get on their way very soon.
Many backers receiving delivery in the EU have commented or contacted me. Unless your pledge name says "EU Friendly" you should not have gotten an email notification or a package. This will be rectified soon.
I am very sorry for this as I know these will be some of the "longer" shipments as well. The original plan was to have these shipments on their way while the USA and EU were awaiting the air freight. This would have hopefully caused all shipments to arrive in roughly the similar timeframes. Factory delays and then a final reinspection of the shipment after reported damages in the EU and USA shipments delayed this further. Though they did find a couple hundred damaged units and kept them from being passed on to backers. All in all, I understand that it is very frustrating and I am very sorry for all the delays. I am very thankful for all the patience that has been shown by our backers and I am very excited that your games are one step closer to making it in your hands.
If you have been watching the comments or discussion on BGG you may have seen talk about card replacements. There are 5 cards that have minor errors. These mistakes do not hinder gameplay. The worst of these is the reference card. On the side that lists the Feats, there is one incorrect icon and another incorrect number. The other 4 card errors are missing icons that are only used during sorting. 2 feats are missing their unlock symbols and the chief cards are missing their villager icons. I am sorry for these unfortunate mistakes. As it stands we cannot afford a full replacement and shipment. The solution we came up with is a $1 replacement order. This is available through our website for those who are interested. For $1 we will ship the 5 replacement cards anywhere in the world. This does not cover the cost but will help with the shipping. This is available for Backers and Pre-Orders only. You must include your backer number or the email attached to your pledge as well as a paper or plastic card type in the order notes while checking out. You can order yours here: http://portaldragon.com/product/palm-island-replacment-cards/. I am working to produce these replacements now and the available quantity will be based on the initial response. In addition, I will bring these to cons to give to backers free of charge.
