Tooling Update!

Posted by Philip Reed (Collaborator)

Today, Sabrina reviewed the tooling samples of the Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius project. A tooling sample is a hand-crafted mockup and our last chance to make corrections before the factory moves into final production. The speed with which they prepared the tooling sample is incredible! 

The new box required a new die line; the peg hole is the wrong size and needs corrected.

Unfortunately, there were minor issues that need to be corrected and will act as a bit of a speed bump. These should have no impact on the estimated delivery; when we set our estimate, we planned some space in the schedule for "that isn't quite right" situations.

A small grommet error that will be fixed.

      @Lukas Buergi - "And they mean it with the dice and promos. Got a whole bunch of the latter in my Munchkin order. Not to mention a poster that really made my day and that of my gaming group, depicting an upcoming Munchkin version."

      And there are expansions on the way!

      @Tom - "Shipping within the US for the $20 tier is $10! Seems a bit high."

      This matches what has been in the estimated shipping costs since project launch. Postage and fulfillment costs continue to grow for everyone.

Not to mention a poster that really made my day and that of my gaming group, depicting an upcoming Munchkin version. A version that's going to be awesome, it just can't possibly go wrong. A version that in a way seems such a logical choice, it kinda came as a surprise it hadn't been long done yet in hindsight.

      Just took a look at the pledge manager. Shipping within the US for the $20 tier is $10! Seems a bit high.
