Travelling Board Games, Recording and More

Hello backers!

This is one of the most exciting updates I’ve written so far. That’s because we are shipping the board game! That is correct - squeezing an articulated lorry into a narrow parking space, carting board games back and forth in vans, planning out the minimal amount of walking space we’d need in the London office to stuff maximum games in… it’s definitely been a hell of a ride.

We’ve sent an email to everyone that we’ve shipped to (which includes all of you foremost) but just wanted to repeat - the board game requires the companion app in order to play it. The app will launch around Christmas, and we’ll email you when it does! We wanted to avoid your board game getting mixed up in Christmas shipping delays, which is why we’ve sent it early.

We expect you will receive your copy within the following timeframe:

UK: 2 weeks
EU: 2 weeks
Rest of the World: 1-6 weeks

It’s going to be hard waiting to open the secrets in the box… but it’ll be worth it.

In other news, we were at Spiel 2017 in Essen last month - which was an overwhelming but incredibly fun and educational experience.

We were at the Kickstarter booth every morning for a couple of hours as well, so we got to meet some great people, see some great games and have a good time in the middle of all that chaos!

We’re also hard at work recording the final part of the game audio. Matt’s finished writing all the scripts and has seamlessly moved onto directing the actors!

It’s been pretty fun times lugging board games around the office while hearing the muffled screams and zombie groans coming from the sound booth corner. We’re very close to the finish line now - so just stash the board game box away safely until you hear from us again!

Until next time,
Ranjani

      Wow! Arrived so fast! Got mine here in Seattle today (Saturday the 2nd). Thanks! Looking forward to playing this game. Can't wait for the app. This looks great.

      I don't seem to have received any email. Should I be concerned?

      I got mine two days ago! I was confused when I first saw the international shipping package (I live in the USA) but immediately excited when I realized what it was. I can't wait to play :)

      @Tom: You could always play versus mode if you have that. Just forget about the app telling you when to pick versus cards and make plans for them.

      Just got mine today, which is impressively quick... but now I can't do anything with it until I get the app! Gah! I know the zombies are coming, but I can't run yet!

      Got mine this past Friday. Was surprised to see it so quick after your announcement. Can't wait for the app so I can start playing with the family.

      Mine landed yesterday - super exciting. I can't wait to play it over Christmas. I got very excited when I saw the zombies run post mark on the box, I wasn't expecting it for awhile yet!

      Got mine a couple of days ago here in the US. I was shocked to find it in my post.

      I actually received the game today in Belgium before this update was sent out! I never got any warning or tracking. But yay :)
