Shipping Updates

We wanted to provide you an update on shipping of your Munchkin Unicorns and Friends pledges. We apologize for this update taking longer than we would have liked. We expected to have concrete information to share long before now.

UK, EU, NZ, and AU

After spending the last few weeks sending messages and voicemail back and forth, we finally have an ETA from our carrier. The current ETA for the product to arrive is just before the end of February. To speed up delivery, each pledge has been pre-packed, allowing the team to ship immediately once the games arrive at the warehouse. We hope to have all pledges well into their shipping process before the end of March.

We know that this process has taken longer than initially expected. We made a promise that we would not pass along VAT and duties fees to our EU customers, but in making that commitment, we entered a whole new world of regulations and complications. 

US and Canada 

If you are in the United States or Canada and HAVE completed your survey, but HAVE NOT received your Unicorns pledge items, please email me directly (darryll@SJGames.com). Include your full name on the order, shipping address, and email address. 

We thank all of you for remaining so patient while we work through this process.

Thank you, gang, for sharing pics of your rewards on social media! We're seeing more and more reports of Munchkin Unicorns and Friends reaching your home, and every post makes us smile and reminds us of why we get to have so much fun making games: Because of your support!!!

How did we do?

Now that the project is coming to a close, this is a good time for us to ask you: How did we do with the Munchkin Unicorns and Friends campaign. We plan to bring more projects to Kickstarter (this is where I remind you that the Girl Genius campaign closes today), and we want to learn from this experience and improve our communications and project management. If you have any likes, dislikes, or suggestions, please let us know! We can only get better with your help.

Holiday Sale!!!

One last bit of Munchkin news that we want to share with all of you today. We're holding a holiday sale at our online store, Warehouse 23, and you're all invited! We've got an assortment of Munchkin games and expansions available, as well as bonus items for spending $25, $50, $75, or more! Please check out the sale today.

Retailers! You're also welcome to take advantage of the sale. If you do not have a retailer account on Warehouse 23, please contact retailers@sjgames.com today, and we'll help you get a retailer account up and running.

And that's all for today, team. Again, thank you for making Unicorns such a great success, and please let us know what you liked and disliked about this campaign. We can only get better if you help guide us and let us know what you want to see in future projects.

Unicorns Shipping Update

Our fulfillment partner continues to pick, pack, and ship rewards, working as quickly as they can to complete the shipping process. This morning, this photo from the warehouse landed in my hands, and I knew that many of you would enjoy a peek at the fulfillment process.

By using BackerKit, we were able to allow you to customize your rewards, making the fulfillment process slightly more complicated (but nothing that the warehouse cannot handle; they ship thousands of packages every week). 

If all goes well, the last of the rewards will leave the fulfillment center before December. International rewards will have to take the long journey and may require another month or two to wind themselves through the system and reach your door; we will post an update when we have more info on the international rewards.

Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius Final Days

At the moment, we're down to the last few days for the Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius campaign on Kickstarter. All stretch goals have been unlocked, the project has completed all internal checks, and we're on track to deliver the game as estimated (maybe, if we get lucky, a little ahead of the estimated date).

If you're a steampunk fan, you'll want to check this one out before the project closes.

Unicorns Mailing!

Darryll has been working closely with our fulfillment warehouse in an attempt to ship all of the rewards as quickly as possible. Boxes are being packed and mailed, and there's a chance that some of you in the U.S. will see your rewards before the end of this month (which would put delivery at slightly ahead of our original estimate). Please post here and let us know when you receive your package!

Munchkin 9 – Jurassic Snark

In other Munchkin news, we can happily report that Steve and John's work on Munchkin 9 – Jurassic Snark is now in stores. This 112-card expansion brings dinosaurs into the dungeon . . . because we could. And as a part of the classic Munchkin line, the card backs match those found in Munchkin Unicorns and Friends; what happens when a unicorn meets a dinosaur? Add Munchkin 9 – Jurassic Snark to your next Munchkin session and you can tell us what happens!

The Unicorns Have Landed!

Great news! We received notice that the Munchkin Unicorns and Friends container reached the fulfillment warehouse yesterday afternoon, and now the team will start packing and mailing your rewards. It may take two or three weeks to process everything (the holidays next week slow things down a tad), but we'll be back here and post an update once the last of the rewards have shipped.

International backers. Please note that the Michigan warehouse will pack your rewards and then ship them to consolidators for the larger journey. Your rewards will go to a different destination in the U.S., and then, on a schedule we do not control, will forward to our fulfillment partners in the UK and Canada. When we have more details on the delivery schedule, we will post an update.

Munchkin Steampunk: Girl Genius

The Girl Genius expansion closes on Kickstarter next week and has almost unlocked all of the stretch goals. There are still about 50 slots of the $80 reward level (which includes the Munchkin Steampunk Deluxe game) available, so even if you do not already have Munchkin Steampunk, there's a chance to get the core game as well as this new expansion.

Join us, please, and help unlock the final goals!
