Fulfillment

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.

If BackerKit won't let you change your address, please email ks@roxley.com immediately with the new one and any relevant details (such as moving dates).

Adjusting the Update Schedule

We're will continue regular updates every two weeks, until fulfillment is finished. These updates will be moving to Friday evening instead of Sunday. (Updates rarely change over the weekend, so it doesn't make sense to keep you waiting two additional days.)  So the next update is scheduled for Friday, July 13th.

First Shipments of Brass Sighted!

Steampunk Rally celebrates Canada Day!

Many of you recently saw on our social media a preview image for an Inventor Cockpit card for Steampunk Rally: Zhuge Liang & Lady Huang, legendary historical figures from the Chinese Three Kingdoms period, who will be included in Orin Bishop's upcoming Steampunk Rally: Fusion. We also promised to unveil a truly iconic Canadian inventor on July 1st to celebrate Canada Day, as well as a really big Steampunk Rally spoiler. Well the time has come to fulfill that promise!

New Canadian Inventor – Red Green!

Roxley Promos at MeepleSource & Dice Tower Con!

These and our other promo cards can be found at MeepleSource, who will be bringing a supply to Dice Tower Con this weekend for their first public release! (We'll still bring them to conventions we go to--visit us in 2018 at Gen Con, Essen Spiel, PAX Unplugged, and everywhere else we go, and we'll hook you up while we have some left!)

As always, if you have any comments or questions, please email ks@roxley.com. 

Keep rollin' sixes,

Gavan Brown & Team Roxley

      @Joshua, no problem, we appreciate you double checking. Would be easier to fix now rather than later if there was something wrong!

      Gotcha. Sorry, I'm still a KS newbie. Thanks for checking.

    3. Paul Saxberg of Roxley Games Collaborator on

      @Joshua, I see them here on my end. Anything you added in BackerKit won't be visible from Kickstarter - information flows only the other way.

      I did the chip add on, but I don't see that on my KS pledge view. Are add ons just not listed there?

    5. Eric F on

      One thing is for certain, feel sorry for all the delivery personnel over the next month delivering all of these heavy games that will only be heavier if you added any chip sets. Can't wait for my delivery.

    6. Paul Saxberg of Roxley Games Collaborator on

      @Darren, I checked your order, apparently your survey questions indicated 2xLancashire, rather than one of each. We apologize if the survey wasn't clear enough. I am following up on this for you and another person with a similar issue - if we aren't able to modify the order, we will definitely still help you out, but we'll follow up with some options about what to do with the extra game.

      @Harris - thank you so much - it means a lot to the team that you appreciate the efforts we go to. Absolute perfection is never possible, but we'll never stop trying to get closer, because we are gamers and customers too! So thank you for your support in helping to make it all both possible and awesome.

      @Bry Hearn, yes, all games come with their base Iron Clays, and if you ordered fillouts or separate sets, they will come with those too.

    7. Bry Hearn on

      are the extra gaming clays coming at the same time?

    8. Harris on

      Can I just go ahead and clap for you all at Roxley?! I mean seriously, you guys are THE BEST at communication and apparently logistics too! I'm almost to the point of not caring if the game is a total dud because you all made the entire KS interaction an easy and enjoyable experience! You guys communicate timely, always map out dates and now you're proving your expertise at packaging! I mean every other KS (and I've done 28 others now) has come NOWHERE CLOSE to communicating and managing logistics as professionally as you all have! I mean, I'm truly giving you a clap for your effort! Thank you! Having dealt with such abysmal communication, non-existent timelines, and child-level logistics from others, I'm grateful you have led the way. I'm inclined to continue backing your projects for a long time because of it! At the end of the day, you guys not only make a great game but make the entire anticipation of the game a real treat! Again, thank you!

      @Darren Smith. I would check that, it sounds like an error. My email says 1 x Lancashire and 1 x Birmingham

      Got a shipping notice for UK. It says 2x Brass Lancashire deluxe edition. I take it this means 1 copy of Lancashire and 1 copy of Birmingham?

      Extra padding. Respect

    12. Paul Saxberg of Roxley Games Collaborator on

      @SpicyRamen, yes, you will be fulfilled by VFI. Most backers should get tracking numbers in mid-July.

      @paul is japan part of “rest of the world”? Since it has arrived at fulfillment center, so you have a rough estimate when it will be dispatched out?

    14. Napinc on

      Well now I have to get Steam Punk Rally that promo needs to be mine!

      @Leto - note that those are *well* packaged.

      I would love to play a game of Radio Zork. I pick D: "Slip the box in under the door."

      @Colin, cross our fingers and knock on wood! Nothing so far.

      @Amarice, you'll hear more about it soon but I don't have specifics yet unfortunately.

      @ggralpy, one should be sent automatically to you when your box is packed.

      @James, Happy Canada Day, eh?

    21. James on

      Red Green! Brilliant! Love it! So Canadian! Happy Canada Day! Insta-order on that promo for me! More exclamation marks!
