      I got an e-mail last week with my tracking #. It said delivery would be 7/31 by the end of the day. I checked it again yesterday, it still said it would be here 7/31 by the end of the day. Today I check it, and it just left Florida, and the new date is 8/3/

      @Atarilynx, that's correct. We have been transparent about the delays and the reasons for them, and we have apologized for them... we wanted this on your gaming table six months ago.

      But we do stand by our decisions to bring you a quality product instead of a rushed one. We understand if individual customers are unhappy with this.

      So best estimate is a fulfill date 6 months later than the original projected date...right?

    4. Paul Saxberg of Roxley Games Collaborator on

      @Nguyen, these are estimated dates, but we can't promise it will be earlier for Asia. The earliest batches are sent to the most distant destinations in an attempt to have all backers treated fairly and unify retail release dates.

      @Rocco, I'm told I will not be have ship names to release, sorry!

      What about Asean region? Is it included in the [rest of the world]

    9. Paul Saxberg of Roxley Games Collaborator on

      @Michael Ma, fulfillment in China is centralized, yours will not be going to Australia, that was a typo.

      ...as am I Joseph. Meet you back here with popcorn for the truck animation. I’m hoping for speed lines and spinning wheels!

      Here just to see how the freight picture animates.

      Hi, I am a back from China. I know the products are printed in China. Can you just send it from the factory directly from the factory to China, in my case, Beijing, Instead of load all of them onto the vessel?

      Great campaign! It's a nice change from a lot of the "hacks" you see around here anymore.

      You're so professional in your communications. This whole Kickstarter experience with Brass is lots of joy! Happy to receive the game in just a short while.

      Any chance of listing the vessels names? It's kinda fun to track them on marinetraffic.com 😀

      @BBHouseRodent - To be safe you can change your shipping address to that of a friend or relative! :)

      Of my many Kickstarters this is one I have been eagerly anticipating. Looking forward to getting it into my hands. Any stats you can give us for fun: Like how many freight containers did you fill, total tonnage or any other fun info you care to share. Thanks for taking the time to do everything right.

      Ugh... I'm excited to receive the game but this likely puts delivery smack in the middle of vacation.

      Noticed the mistake in the e-mail, came here to say something and you already fixed :)

      Looking forward to July.

      Apologies, I messed up pasting in China / Rest of World zone date and put the word "Australia" in there. Fixed in the update.
