Yesterday, we looked over the final files for the Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius expansion as well as everything for the Munchkin Steampunk Accessory Pack that is also being created thanks to your support. (Rumors that we also reviewed a special set of Munchkin Steampunk promo cards and bookmarks that will be available as an add-on in BackerKit may or may not be true.)
We will now make the final checks and then, maybe before Thanksgiving, place the order with the factory. That should drop the tooling sample into our hands before Christmas, all of which will make it more likely that we will deliver the project slightly ahead of schedule. We're not yet 100% ready to set a ship date, but finishing the work and placing the order earlier than we first planned gives us a fighting chance at early delivery.
Thank you for all of your suggestions for possible add-ons during the BackerKit stage of the project. While we cannot meet every request, your comments have helped guide us as we start to build the BackerKit page. At the moment, we expect to open the BackerKit pledge manager in early December.
As always, please check your favorite local game store or Warehouse 23 if you want to add more goodies to your Munchkin collection. And with the holidays coming up, we want to be sure that you're aware of the Shelf Improvement box. This is not available in stores and makes for a wonderful holiday gift . . . for yourself, of course. Your friends can buy their own presents.
