Progress update & come say hi at Gen Con next week!
I thought it was about time we did a progress update to let everyone know where we are at!
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.
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.
