We have a new Kickstarter project coming on July 31st: the Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule, Cool For School Coloring Book!
You can watch the trailers for Mike Maihack's new graphic novel, Cleopatra In Space, on YouTube. The book is available now on Amazon! https://www.youtube.com/watch… https://www.youtube.com/watch…
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
So happy to hear it, Octavio. Enjoy!
so I had forgotten to post this, but I got my book a while back.
And its GORGEOUS :D
Thanks Marilyn - hopefully we'll get you sorted out nice and quickly!
email sent...I haven't received my pledge gifts
Thank you for the link... I've filled out the form & hope to hear back soon.
Hey Mark - can I ask you to head on over to this page and fill out the form you'll find there?
I'll see if I can chase it up from my end once that's been sent over. We'll get you sorted!
It's October 15th now & Ive Still not received my copy of the Book????
Any kind of update would be nice.... Thanks
The hard cover art books have shipped! Most of you who ordered them should receive them by sometime next week! (International orders might take a little longer to deliver.) We'll get a more detailed Update posted soon.
Hi Mark, I haven't been given an update yet, unfortunately. I do know that orders for the books are underway, so hopefully that news will come soon. Thank you for being extremely patient. :)
any news on the hard cover book shipping date please???
Hello Aaron, let us hope that neither the Goblins, nor their cousins the Gremlins, have put their grubby little hands onto your rewards package!
Update #38 has information for what to do if you have not yet received shipping confirmation for your order. You can also contact Game Salute directly at KickStarter@GameSalute.com and Service@GameSalute.com
Well, another day, and still no product. Where oh where have my fairies gone? I bet it is those darn Goblins keeping it from being shipped to my house.
@Derek, :) Which fairy was it?
Got my copy last week, and I love it! Art is great, the game is fun to play with my kids. The first night we had it, my daughter snuck out and took one of the fairy cards with her to her room caused she thought it was so pretty. So that's a pretty ringing endorsement. ;)
Good news! For those of you who ordered the limited edition hardcover Art Books, you should be seeing them soon. Game Salute will post a new update when they ship out. :)
@Camey, sorry it took so long to get them to you. I hope the wait was worth it, and thank you for spreading the good word about GDFR!
@Terry, enjoy! :)
Finally received my games. Played with a friend and now she is going to buy one for her family. Thanks.
I just received a delivery confirmation. Thanks guys!
My shipping charge was processed through PayPal July 3rd. Is there a timetable for delivery?
Hi James, you can email KickStarter@GameSalute.com directly with questions about your rewards. More contact info is in the latest update (#38) on the Updates page.
I have not received mine either.
@Martin - glad you enjoy the game! The cards were indeed upgraded to a stiffer, more expensive cardstock. However, like any other game, it's recommended to sleeve the cards to keep them in the best condition. Tarot sleeves should fit perfectly.
@Ritchie - Thanks! I'm not sure which are the best brand of sleeves out there, but the GDFR cards are indeed tarot-proportioned, so that's the size to look for.
What's the best kind of sleeve to buy for these cards? They seem tarot-proportioned, so would Mayday Games' Magnum Platinum Sleeves be the right choice?
I have to say that the card art is absolutely magnificent. They looked good on screen but they're even better-looking on the actual cards. Need to get some tarot sleeves pronto.
The game is fantastic to play and I am sure my boys will love it when they get a bit older. However I cannot believe that the last stretch goal was for 'even more durable and awesome cards'. Only two games with two careful adults later and one of the cards already has a noticeable kink in the cardboard. I bought a couple of copies for gifts, but I am going to keep one of the others for when I get some tarot sleeves. Very poor.
In response to your latest email, I'm dropping you a line to let you know that I have not yet received my Cringe & Cower package.
Okay, thanks for letting us know.
Looking forward to getting an Email from you. I also have not received my package. =)
To elaborate, I will be working strictly and solely on resolving any missing packages for Goblins Drool this week.
Thank you for your patience,
There seems to have been a significant processing error with the pledge manager system. Between this, and the combination of other things, the response time has been poor to say the least regarding Goblins Drool. We are working on resolving this as effectively as we can, but the nature of the processing error has created a tremendous amount of complexity.
I sent an e-mail a week ago and nothing. First Kickstarter I'd backed with such a bad response time.
At the same time I sent a message to another project that I hadn't received the reward on and I got a message back with-in the day.
I also have not received my pledge reward. I emailed SpringBoard on June 7th and another on June 13. I just sent them another email this morning. I realize they were at Origins during part of that time but noticed others are also having this issue. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
Still haven't got my game, emailed you guys days ago, called you company and left voice mail about a week ago. Filled out all my info, haven't even got a response back.
I have contacted them at that address and this is prior to Origins - and I have heard nothing...
Hi Julie, Pete, and Geoff. Emailing Springboard@GameSalute.com with your shipping questions is the best way to get them answered. However, as Frank's away message states, he may not be able to respond until after June 19th.
Still waiting on my game and puzzle.
I still haven't' received my game, nor have I been contacted after sending out an email as requested here...
I also have not received any notice or product, or anything. I pledged at the $100. I've emailed Springboard@GameSalute.com, and I've sent a Kickstarter private message.
I just got an out-of-office message from Kickstarter@gamesalute.com:
Thank you for contacting me. I will be out of the office until June 19th due to the Origins Game Fair. I will be responding to as many emails as possible while on the road, but please expect a longer response time than normal. If you would like to contact me directly, please call 603-475-6944.
@Octavio - It's great to hear that she will enjoy the cards and the puzzle. :)
About the change of address, maybe. Please email Springboard@GameSalute.com as soon as possible with your Kickstarter name and the address change request, and they should be able to change it if the shipping isn't already being processed.
I see! By the way, the art in the cards is very nice, and the puzzle is now in the hands of a girl that will enjoy the heck out of it.
Would is be possible to change the address to where the book is to be sent?
Hi Octavio, the books did not ship yet, but will soon. Probably after the Origins Game Fair (which is this week - so another week or two most likely.) A new update will be posted when the books go out.
... unless it ships later? o_o
Got my package! Card game and puzzles and stickers and... its missing the book :< Pledged at the 75 level... I guess I'll have to message them :/
@Mercedes - Yay! Can't wait to see it!
@Musictwig - Enjoy! :)
@James - I'm sorry to hear that. Have you emailed Springboard@GameSalute.com ?
@Jodez4 - Glad to hear it! Hopefully GDFR can become a bridge for them into other tabletop games.
@Riccardo - You're welcome, and Thank YOU. :)
@Chris - Tarot-sized sleeves will fit the cards. Awesome pic!
@Mark - Thank you, Mark, I'm glad you appreciate the time and attention that went into this project.
I am very proud to have had you all on board as part of this project, and hope that the good word will continue to spread.
On a totally unrelated note, today's Google Doodle (June 10th) is probably my favorite one ever: https://www.google.com/webhp…
Mine just arrived in Japan :) I'll do a little video when I get the chance.
Mine arrived yesterday!
