STATUS REPORT – 2018.07.27 – All Zones Fulfilling. Australia/NZ/Rest of World Finished! Gen Con is Next Week!
TL;DR – Fulfillment in progress in EU, USA, Canada. All orders fulfilled in Australia/NZ/Rest of World. New Santorini Characters at Gen Con.
All freight has arrived except in the EU, Happyshops has received about 1/3 of expected stock and we are working on confirming arrival dates for the rest.
North American Fulfillment
USA: Confirmation numbers are arriving for US backers and more are expected tonight and early next week. QML are working in order from the most distant backers to the nearest (they are located in Florida) with the goal of having as many people as possible receive the game early next week. Some backers have reported being able to get their tracking faster by downloading the FedEx app.
Canada: Snakes & Lattes was scheduled to ship all Canadian backers next week but they are ahead of schedule – Canadian backers are receiving tracking already, and some in Ontario & Quebec have already received their games!
HappyShops has been shipping the stock they’ve received, but are still awaiting the majority of the games delayed by customs. It is hard to get a guaranteed arrival date for this stock. The first Iron Clays have arrived and are shipping out, but now there is a shortage of copies of Birmingham until the next container arrives. HappyShops is continuing to ship what they can in the meantime.
If you’re an EU backer going on holiday, your original email from HappyShops has a link in it you can use to confirm your address--but that link can also be used to delay your shipment until you get back (if it is a long holiday, you may need to use it more than once).
Australia / NZ
All regular pledges have been sent. If you have a notification from “Jenny Q”, that’s from Gameology. They have sent us a copy of the tracking information, so if you have not received it, we can now look it up (although be warned we have a high volume of messages coming in right now so we might not be able to answer immediately).
China / Rest of World
All regular pledges have been sent. We’re hearing that some people have received tracking and some have not – we’ve messaged VFI asking for tracking for everyone, but as it is the weekend there already, we may not get this back right away.
GEN CON IS NEXT WEEK!
Communications will be slow next week, as Team Roxley is in Indianapolis. Please come visit us if you are too! We’re at booth #531 in Hall J, and if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Wallace will be signing copies of Brass at 12:30 PM Thursday, and 11:30 AM Friday. Joining us again this year will be Nate & Manny, the creators of Dice Throne, who just might be bringing some sneak previews from Dice Throne Season Two...!
If you requested Gen Con pickup of your pledge, you should have received a confirmation email already. (It is unfortunately too late to join this if you missed it). Reminder: we have a very limited supply at Gen Con, and are expecting to sell out quickly. We promise we will reserve your pledge until the end of the day Saturday. If you have not picked it up by Sunday morning, we reserve the right to sell it and ship your pledge to you instead.
Promos! Promos! Promos!
In addition to the new Steampunk Rally promos, we'll have some new faces joining us from the world of Santorini! We're going to have a limited quantity of these at the Roxley and Spin Master booths, or you can buy them separately at MeepleSource. (These characters will later be included in a limited quantity Deluxe Edition, not available in stores; more details about that are coming later in the year).
