So, what you're saying is that the Ogre has reached the CP? Great job defending it, guys....
I think I see my copy!
You guys don't own any handcarts? There isn't a Harbor Freight in Austin?
$200 will save you at least that much in massages alone, to say nothing of any chiropractic visits!
Yay! Everything is in! Now shipping begins, right? Would be interested to hear how many/day you're able to ship. I wonder what day the first copy will arrive at a backers....
What box will the Swag go into? Does the swag get its own box, or will you open up the boxes shown in the pix, drop in the swag, reseal and ship?
This is going to be awesome, can't wait to get mine in hand. Great job guys!
@John -- there are several handcarts in the full set of pictures. It looks like they carried the boxes to the end of the truck and then could put two at a time on the handcarts.
@Roncaster -- the Ogre boxes will be untouched. Swag ships separately.
I suddenly have this image in my head of a warehouse full of Ogres all quoting the same exact line from Independence Day, "Release me...". :)
Thanks, Kevin - I was just going by the pics in the update.
Two sets puts those handcarts at 50-60 lbs, right?
Inching closer. Just the import VAT to pay I hope (An extra 20%. According to dutycalculator.com, no other duty to pay on board games from the US)
Extras get their own box, as there is literally no room in the shipping carton. The pocket OGRE is all the room left, by design. At 28+ lbs you really wouldn't want to add to it.
Shipping will commence on the 22nd, the Monday after the release party, though with some luck, we will have a good portion all labeled and ready to go before then.
Looking forward to seeing s bunch of you next weekend for Launch, and a reminder if you want the discounted rate you have to call the local number for the extended stay directly. The central reservations line doesn't have the block or discount loaded.
Hmm ... 800 copies times six at 28+ lbs per box. Comes to at least 4800 games and over 67 tons. Good thing the offloading all goes on one floor.
What about retail copies, ordered through hobby channels (Alliance)-will it be in stores before Christmas?
@Edward Elder: It's even more than that, they got 6 MORE containers, so 7 total.
