      Hey guys. If you have a 3d printer or access to one. I made some card trays and token dishes to help save on table space and allows you to move the game easier if needed.

      IF YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN YOUR GAME OR OTHER THINGS YET... we're terribly sorry. We hired Gamesquest UK to do international fulfillment & they stopped being responsive to our emails when problems started coming up with your kickstarter pledge fulfillment. So we canned them. So now we're handling everything. This stinks - but we're working hard to make sure you get what you deserve from us.


      EMAIL SLIMEY@GOBLINKO.COM & we'll get you sorted! We're on it!

      Thank you for your patience.

      x Sean, Katie & Eric.

      Thanks Johannes.

    4. Johannes on March 12

      Since Games Quest is out of the picture and Goblinko handles this from Portland everything worked out as smoothly as Mett on a Mettbrötchen! Delivery of parts and extras was great. Big thanks to Sean & friends & family!

      Got my copy yesterday. Hyper-gorgeous!

    6. Sean Äaberg Creator on February 20

      Well - Games Quest is fired. They're not doing their job correctly so we will be handling any issues with international orders from here on out. My apologies for selecting the wrong company for international fulfillment - we wouldn't have used them if we knew what a shitty job they were going to do. My apologies to everyone affected. We are also working with our printer to get new punch boards made to replace any damaged ones you have. Rest assured - we are working to get all of your orders correct. Thank you.

      Yeah, they were all the rage a few years ago but I have a feeling that the business hasn't been scaled in terms of operations and customer service and they are being overwhelmed with the amount of business they are getting at the moment.

      Gamesquest are sure stuffing up a LOT of kickstarter deliveries these days :(

      I finally receive the gamebox in London/UK... now waiting for the missing characters.

      Thanks for the update - I appreciate to know that you're working on it!

    11. Sean Äaberg Creator on February 6

      To international backers who haven't received their game yet. Thank you for backing Dungeon Degenerates Hand of Doom on Kickstarter. We are very sorry you do not have your game yet! As you know, we contracted with Gamesquest in the UK to handle our international fulfillment to save on shipping and taxes for our backers outside of the USA. Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, Gamesquest made some errors on a small number of our backers' fulfillments, and you are in that group. We are working with Gamesquest to get this error corrected and get your games (and extras) to you as soon as possible. We know you are excited to play the game and ask for your continued patience as we work with Gamesquest to make sure everything gets to you as soon as possible.

      Mantichor had sent emails, with no response. I would say that Sean hit a new low in KickStarter standards.

    13. Ron McIlroy
      on February 4

      Here's what Sean posted on the comments in the update, what a load of crap: Sean Äaberg Creator 1 day ago
      Hey Mantichor - fuck your passive aggressive bullshit. We've said a million times - if you have a problem with your order - email - each "missing shipment" is being dealt with.

    14. Mantichor
      on February 4

      You mean I should move forward to active aggressive posting like you did in the updates comment section?

      I contacted said email address three weeks ago and got no response. Any thoughts on that?

    15. Sean Äaberg Creator on February 3

      As repeatedly stated - the way to get information about your pledge & any questions you might have is directly to - that's the way you do it. Passive aggressively posting on this kickstarter wall is not going to get the goods.

    16. Mantichor
      on February 3

      No info on the missing shipments, but announcing new sales...just sad.

    17. Daniel Sieber

      Same here, also in Germany. No tracking number and no feedback from Goblinko. Got an E-Mail on the 4th of January stating that there was a fulfillment error (apparently they ran out of the 8 character additional adventurer pack) and that they'd send out the game immediately and the addon in February. Well it's almost February now... No game whatsoever arrived at my doorstep, yet.

      Same here, in Canada. I didn't get a tracking number either and the game hasn't arrived yet.

      Since January 12, no response from GamesQuest (and neither from Goblinko for that matter)...

    19. Mantichor
      on January 26

      Same here, also Germany. No reaction to a direct inquiry...

    20. Johannes on January 26

      So, I didn't get a tracking number and the game hasn't arrived yet to germany. Any news about international orders? I would really like to play...

      @EMILIANO I'm waiting news too from Italy... nothing yet :-(

    22. Tordai Barnabás
      on January 23

      @Pawel, thanks for your answer, it makes sense, so I guess its time to hit the order button :)

    23. Pawel Szwarc on January 21

      @Tordai Barnabás, since board is divided into four regions, and each of four world books cover one of said region, I suppose there won't be more world book coming anytime soon (until we'll see first board expansion that is). That said I think I remember a mention that there's a plan of releasing some sort of beats books / bestiaries in the future.

    24. Tordai Barnabás
      on January 19

      How many worldbooks there will be -the more , the better :D -? Since im living in EU, I would like to order them all together just to spare some precious gold on shipping.

      The cards in my adventurer pack are slightly different from those in the main decks - not enough to make it unusable, but they don't line up quite right.

    26. Grinzy
      on January 17

      Did anyone else get the adventurer pack with the cards cut wrong?

    27. EMILIANO CIOFFI on January 16

      Still waiting for news of the shipment. Any input from fellow Italian backers?

      This game is a instant classic. Fantastic work guys!

      I want more.

      Also more in white metall.
      Resin is perfect for more details and puting the minis on a shelf or in a showcase.
      But when it comes to playing with it, metall (or pvc) is the better, resistant option.

    29. Schmidt on January 10

      @Pawel read the Rule Book twice then get right into the adventure!

    30. Pawel Szwarc on January 10

      Ok, I've just received my parcel with D&D in Poland. It required an email to delivery company asking why I haven't heard about my parcels since December 21st, but at least I got both today morning :-D Now I just don't know whether to spend this evening playing game straight away or reading world books first for extra immersion ;-)

    31. Pablo Domínguez Castro
      on January 10

      @Pawel Thank you very much!! I double checked it and they are Ok. Now I'm relieved. Cat was very near them & you know, they are pesky burglars, those little bastards. He was giving me his typically "I did nothing" look while patting the cards so I got a little nervous. Sure was checking on his comrade Alley Cat. Confirmed your math skills. Get 1XP.

    32. Pawel Szwarc on January 9

      @Pablo, according to official list on BGG you're good (unless I failed my mathematics skill check). Check the link below for details:

      @Schmidt @Sean (or anyone with card wisdom) I've the Adventurer Expansion with 10 characters (Including Angel of Death and Infamous Butcher) & have 15 mini cards (Skills/Mastery) I dunno if there should've been 16 or if I'm OK... (I think my cat stole one card). Help please?

    34. Pawel Szwarc on January 9

      @Sergiu, I received two mails from PacketPort - on December 21st and December 27th - with
      tracking numbers and info that "my parcel from Games Quest is on the way". I believe one of those is Dungeon Degenerates and the other one is most likely for another KS I've backed some time ago. Sadly so far I haven't received any of those parcels.

    35. Last Knight
      on January 9

      I got a tracking number from dpd. Maybe its a question witch distributor is handleling it in the speciffic country.

    36. Sergiu V. Câmpeanu on January 9

      @backers in Europe, did you receive any tracking numbers for your package? I haven't received anything yet and just wondering how GameQuest is handling it.

    37. Pablo Domínguez Castro

      Arrived at Vigo -Galifornia- Spanish West Coast #HellYeah :D

      Greg - honestly, if you are thinking of sleeving the cards, I'd just chuck the insert - they ain't gonna fit back it.

      Always a shame when inserts don't really help after unshrinking / punching a game, but equally can't think of many inserts I HAVEN'T thrown away recently (usually the sleeved cards makes them useless, if nothing else) so I'm not judging Goblinko too harshly on this one.

    39. Greg
      on January 6

      Can someone please show me how exactly everything is meant to fit in the box after all the cardboard tokens have been punched out?
      The insert design is terrible. It looks like there's a void made just for the EMPTY ziplock bags, rather than a space made for when they're full.

      It very much looks like an insert that needs to be thrown away, which is just stupid.

    40. Last Knight
      on January 6

      By the way....there is a dungeon degenerates playlist on spotify and its just perfect. Fits like a fist on the eye - a perfect match.

    41. Last Knight
      on January 6

      Do the sleeved cards fit into the inlay of the box again? The card tray looking kind of close calculated.

    42. Last Knight
      on January 6

      Schmidt thank you for your list!

    43. Schmidt on January 6

      Reading all the "arrival comments" from adjacent locations, like Germany and Sweden, I really have high hopes that finally Hand of Joy will be placed on my location ;-)

    45. David Waller on January 6

      Arrived in Sweden. WOW what a magnificent game!!

    46. Last Knight
      on January 6

      What sleeves do you guys use?

    47. Last Knight
      on January 6

      Got it here in germany. Everything looking fantastic.

      The minis are a blast even though i prefer white metal over resin. Its just more resistant.

      @Sean and Eric
      Amazing job guys thank you so much for this game. It's a success on every level!

      Now what is next? Can we expect a Xpac? Also would love to buy the characters pack but they sold out :( Any reprint incoming?
