We have been on the verge of being able to share a progress report on the 7th Guest Board Game for quite a while, but kept coming up short of that ability. For weeks now, it has remained just out of reach. Why? Here is the short story.
We finished development of the game in late November and have been ready since December to get production underway. But for some reasons that remain inexplicable to us, our prospective manufacturer (who is otherwise probably the best in the business) could not manage to get their end of the process underway. Whatever was going on there, despite our best efforts to get things going, was entirely out of our hands.
So the latest development - which is slightly better than non-news - is that last week we finally managed to break though that first roadblock or bottleneck, or whatever it was, that had been causing the delay. We now have a signed agreement about moving forward. Yet we are still at the very beginning of the manufacturing process and are still unable to project a delivery date, although if things actually go as they should, we should be able to meet our original shipping date of July.
In the meantime, we are working on our next Kickstarter campaign for an 11th Hour expansion pack and two special editions for the original board game.
Here's hoping the next update will be a more substantial progress report.
