Status Report - 2018.05.19 - Tile samples approved. Freight to begin May 23! You may still change your shipping address.
TL;DR - I'm breaking our usually 2-week update timing to let you all know that the tile sheet samples look fantastic and have been approved. The tiles are now being die cut. Final assembly will be completed on May 23, ready for freight to begin! Finally! Thank you all for your patience.
The real test of a manufacturer is not whether or not they ever run into a problem during production. On a long enough timeline, all manufacturers that have the courage to take on innovative projects with a very high expectation of quality will experience challenges or problems. The real test of a manufacturer is how they respond to these challenges.
I am happy to say that immediately after we discovered this problem, GPI immediately brought to bear, without hesitation, all of their resources to resolve the problem with great speed and true professionalism. They even went as far as to send multiple representatives from their office to go China to oversee the factory during the reprint of the affected tiles.
We absolutely appreciate the work from the amazing Jack Scheurich, Mike Fisher and the rest of the GPI team to resolve this problem. I recommend game and gift market creators interested in a manufacturer that will stand behind their work contact them for a quote.
Thank you for your patience
We are in the manufacturing home stretch now. Final assembly for the games will this week, at which point freight will begin. We are extremely happy to have you receive your games and have done as much preparation as possible to ensure the probability for further delays is absolutely minimized. Thank you again to everyone for your patience and unending support. It means a lot to our team.
Will the games hit stores before backers receive them?
A few people have asked this now, so I thought I'd address this in a post. The answer is absolutely not. Backers will ALWAYS receive their Roxley Games before they are available in retail.
I've moved! Can I still change my address?
Yes. If you have moved, please go to your original BackerKit email and click the link. Even if you've submitted your survey, you should be able to manage your address. If you cannot find your survey, you can retrieve it here.
