STATUS REPORT – 2018.07.20 – Fulfillment Has BEGUN! PDF rulebooks released. We Want Your Action Shots!
TL;DR – All product through customs. EU, Australia/NZ, Worldwide shipping has begun. North America has product and backerlists; first tracking numbers expected Wednesday. Majority of backers still on track to receive pledges prior to Gen Con.
All fulfillment centres have been authorized to proceed. Some delays may still apply in the EU and Canada, as detailed below.
USA: All stock is received. Prior fulfillment projects finishing up. QML remains committed to their stated target of getting the majority of US backers their games prior to Gen Con. US backers will start getting tracking numbers on Wednesday the 25th.
Canada: We’re told that the truck carrying our Canadian freight BROKE DOWN (because that’s just our luck, apparently). Fortunately the delay is minor, and we are expecting the Snakes & Lattes shipment to arrive at their warehouse on Monday the 23rd. Note that this warehouse is still on American soil, so the games are still subject to customs and bureaucratic processing. We are expecting the first Canadian tracking numbers to be going out before the end of July.
Customs was apparently very interested in the Iron Clays, but have now released all of the shipping containers. HappyShops has already packed and shipped over 1300 pledges as of last night, and will continue shipping the rest as they arrive. We expect the majority of EU backers to have tracking over the next several days, although the last container to arrive may be as late as August 3rd. Customers have been reporting very fast arrival after receiving tracking and excellent packaging of the games.
Australia / NZ Fulfillment
No delays to report. Gameology is now packing and shipping all orders and predicts all customers will have tracking by Wednesday the 25th.
China / Rest Of World Fulfillment
VFI has already sent games to their most remote backers. All remaining customers will be sent by the end of next week.
