General update

Hi everyone, it’s been a while!

We’re back from our trip to the US and what an amazing time we had, thank you to everyone who came by whilst we were at Gen Con – It was fantastic. I really do enjoy getting to know you, and meeting people at conventions is one of my favourite parts of this adventure.

On that note, I’m super excited to confirm I will be attending Essen, and I can also now announce I will be at Pax Unplugged (the US was too much fun to not go back!). Currently, I don’t have plans to be exhibiting, but closer to the time I will look to organise a meetup of some sort.

Manufacturing update  

There isn’t too much to update you on with the manufacturing side of things right now. Everything is progressing as planned and we’re currently still working with our manufacturers to get the miniature inserts made. It has taken a little longer than I had originally hoped, but I don’t believe this will impact our delivery dates yet.

Everything else is still on track, I’m starting to confirm shipping details with our fulfilment partners and I hope to receive full production samples within the next month. I will keep you updated and hope to have more things to share in the next update!

Have a fantastic week.

Progress update & come say hi at Gen Con next week!

Hi everyone,

I thought it was about time we did a progress update to let everyone know where we are at!

Proofs

For the past few weeks I have been going back and forth with our manufacturers checking over countless proofs for the game. We've now signed off the digital proofs and received printed proofs for about 90% of the game components. In total there are 73 different items across the games and expansions, so there is a lot to sign off, but we are very pleased with everything so far.

All the printed items, such as punchboards, character sheets and cards have been signed off. Most of the non-printed items including the custom meeples for Vadoran Gardens have also been signed off.

The remaining items we're finalising are the inserts for the miniatures and the boxes. We wanted to make sure we had everything else done first, so we could make sure these fitted correctly. I will be meeting with our manufacturers at Gen Con next week to go through these outstanding items and hope by the middle of August everything will be signed off.

At this point I am happy to say we are still on track for our January shipping date.

Gen Con

On Monday I will be heading to America for Gen Con, we will be exhibiting at booth 2765 and hope to see many of you there. Sara and I will be running demos of The City of Kings and Vadoran Gardens and invite you to come and try them out.

We will also have our Okol Costume Promo Card on sale, along with some accessories, art books and limited edition prints.

Please note. Once the convention season ends this promo card will be made available via our website, alongside our other promo cards.

July 30th - August 15th

After Gen Con finishes, Sara and I will be travelling to New York and taking some time to look around America. As such, I won't be posting another update until after I return on August 15th. This won't cause any delays in manufacturing as we will continue to work with our manufacturers whilst travelling, but it does mean we might be slightly slower to respond to messages than normal.

I hope you all have a fantastic few weeks.

Pledge Manager closing in 24 hours

50 likes
Hi everyone,

I wanted to send out a short message to remind you all the Pledge Manager will be closing tomorrow at 00:00 BST, you have just over 24 hours to complete your survey if you haven’t already.

What happens if I miss the deadline?

If you miss the deadline you will be moved into a “first come, first serve” group.

You will still have access to BackerKit, and you will still be able to complete your survey, however, your game, expansions, and accessories will no longer be reserved.

This means:

1) If we run out of stock, you will no longer be able to complete your order. This may happen at any time without notice.

2) We may not ship your order with the other backers, and you will receive it at later shipping date.

If you wish to avoid this, please make sure your survey has been completed.

You can check your surveys by logging into BackerKit.  

I will be sending out another update in the next few day focussing on the project, progress (everything is going great so far) and Gen Con.

Progress Update & Pledge Manager Closing

68 likes
Expected Delivery: January 2019

Hey everyone,

It has been a few weeks since the last update and a lot has happened, I’ve been working around the clock to get everything ready for the manufacturers and can happily confirm I managed to meet all the deadlines I set myself! As such, we’re still on track for our January delivery date and I will keep you posted should anything look to change this.

Pledge Manager Closing Date  

The pledge manager will be closing on Friday 20th July.

There are still 600 people who haven’t completed their surveys, if you are one of them then you have just over 2 weeks to do it. If this will cause any problems for you, please message me and we can see if we can work something out.

Progress

Since the Kickstarter finished a lot has been going on, I have had to prepare all the files for the World Packs, Vadoran Gardens and The City of Kings whilst preparing our manufacturing team.

As of now, all files have been sent to the manufacturers and they are busy creating the first round of digital proofs to confirm everything has been received correctly and looks ok. They are also working on prototypes for the custom meeples for Vadoran Gardens which I hope to see soon and will share once they arrive. Alongside this the tooling for the miniatures is now nearly complete and in a few weeks’ time I should receive the first samples of these as well.

All in all, we’re in a good place right now, January is looking very realistic and I’m really excited to start getting proofs and production samples in the coming months.

I’ll be sure to share photos when things start arriving.  

Have a fantastic July!

Pledge Manager: Card charging & The Big Box

60 likes

Hi Everyone,

I hope you're having a great week? It has been crazy hot in England these last few days and it feels like summer is finally here.

Pledge Manager Closing Date

Thank you to everyone who has filled in their surveys, so far 80% of you have completed the survey and this has allowed us to send our final numbers to our manufacturers.

We will be keeping the Pledge Manager open for as long as possible, and I will continue to update you on the closing date. Currently I can confirm the Pledge Manager will be open until at least July 13th and I will send out another update in a few weeks to let you know if this date will be extended.

The Big Box Stock Levels

With the Pledge Manager being open for an extended period I want to raise awareness about the Big Box and our stock levels.

The Big Box was offered during this Kickstarter campaign to allow our original backers to upgrade should they wish. However, it is important to note that we will not continue to print additional big boxes outside of this Kickstarter.

We lose money on each box we print and are only printing the amount requested through BackerKit with a very small quantity of extras to try and cover those who have not yet filled in their surveys.

This means that we could potentially run out before the Pledge Manager closes, so if this is an item that you would like please make sure you complete your survey as soon as possible.

We are printing a large quantity of extras for all other items and do not anticipate running out of anything other than the box during the next few months.

BackerKit Card Charging: Friday

I want to confirm the first card charging for BackerKit will take place on Friday, this means if you have purchased any extra items and did not pay for them in Kickstarter, your card will be charged on Friday.

Progress Update

As a general update, things are going well and we have now confirmed our final numbers with our manufacturers and provided all the non-printed files for sample production to start. The printed materials are due within the next couple of weeks and I'm confident we will get these delivered on time as well.

Once all the materials have been supplied to our manufacturer (the end of June) I will put together a timeline showing the next 6 months and keep it updated with our progress.
