Hey everyone,  

How’s your November going? I’ve had a busy couple of weeks managing the logistics involved with shipping 40,000 boxes to over 60 countries and I’m pleased to confirm everything is now on boats, trucks and planes and heading towards our fulfilment partners! I’ve also being trying to play some of the amazing games that came out of Essen, have you guys got a favourite Essen game yet?

Speaking of Essen, thank you to everyone who came and said hello! I was overwhelmed by how many people came to our meetup and got in touch to say hello at the show. It was amazing, thank you for taking the time out of your show to come and see me!  

Please confirm your address

We will begin shipping your items directly to your home in less than 7 weeks, so it’s time to make sure your address is completely up-to-date.  

You can confirm your address by looking in BackerKit, if you have forgotten your login details for BackerKit then you can get a reminder here:

Warning

It is your responsibility to make sure your address is correct in BackerKit! If we do not have the correct address when we ship your game, then we may have to charge you again to reship your items, or worse, they may get lost entirely. To avoid this, please please please check your address is correct in BackerKit!

Just one more time, please check your address is correct in BackerKit!  

Pax Unplugged  

Next week I’m getting on a plane and heading back to the US for Pax Unplugged, as with Essen I won’t have a booth there but I would love to say hello to any of you who are going, perhaps we can even play a game?

I will have our 3 promo cards with me along with Vadoran Gardens and some samples from The City of Kings expansions which I’ll be happy to show you.

Omegathon – Watch me live!  

For those of you not familiar with Pax, each show they randomly select a few people to compete in the Omegathon, a gaming tournament split over the weekend. Some how I managed to get selected and that means I’ll be competing at a selection of games on stage, live streamed across the globe. This is one of the main events at Pax and I'm incredibly excited to have been selected!

You’re welcome to tune in and watch on Twitch, or if you’re at the show please come and watch, I have a feeling it’s going to be a lot of fun! You can find the schedule here:

What’s next

I will be in America for 2 weeks (21st November – 4th December), when I return I will start processing your addresses and get them ready for the fulfilment centres. I plan to get all your shipping details finalised and sent to the centres before Christmas so when they return in January they can start shipping straight away.

When I return I’ll send out another update which will talk through the final stages, and until then, I hope you all have a fantastic few weeks and I look forward to seeing some of you in Philadelphia!

      Hi Ryan, this print run includes The City of Kings, expansions and Vadoran Gardens so there are several different boxes included in the 40,000 count. With that said, we have received some very large distribution orders thanks to the success of this campaign and hope to see both our games in stores around the world next year. I'm very excited about this as the games will be available to many more people which will allow me to work on more expansions and games in the world moving forward.

      40,000 boxes? With just 4000+ backers, were you able to sell that many more units to retailers?

      Hey Jason, we'll be release the rest of the cards via our online store in the near future.

      @Frank West If we aren't going to PAX Unplugged is there any way we can purchase that 3 card promo pack from you??? I picked up the card you had at GenCon but I want them all :)

      Let me know

      I'll look for you at Pax Unplugged! Never seen the game before backing and would love to play or see some of the components up close.

      Thanks for the update! I want very badly to go to Pax Unplugged, but will have to pass this year (I've not been to that one and I really want to). Enjoy your stay!

      @Frank: Thanks for the update, but even more so for doing everything you can on your side to have this campaign arrive on time! With prep and now 20 ships in the mix, it sounds like a Herculean task!

      @realag

      All the items shown when you login to BackerKit are available, as soon as we sell out we remove them from the store. So if you can see it, then you will be able to buy it now and it will ship. There's no order cancelling :)

      I'm just looking to get the CoK Deluxe Pledge. If anything is not available, will you cancel the whole order or just ship it at a later date? Hope I'm not pestering you with these questions :)

      Yikes! 20 ships!... Here's hoping it all comes together :-)

      It's my pleasure realag!

      Any items which are still available will go out with the shipments in January.

      Hi Richard Reid Gregg,

      We will be working with Unicorn Games for Australian fulfilment, they managed the first print run perfectly and I'm looking forward to them managing the next shipments.

      Whilst I did share the boat details on the first Kickstarter, I'm afraid I wont be able to share them this time around.

      Unfortunately when we started shipping the games we encountered a couple of small problems with some packaging. This resulted in us holding them back and only shipping some of the items. The packaging problems got resolved fairly quickly but it's resulted in us having to split the cargo over a lot of different boats, planes, and trucks. In fact there are around 20 boats now containing different combinations of items travelling all over the place. None of this will cause delays in us shipping your items out, but it does mean it's a little hard to put together tracking information as we're not working with a single boat per destination.

      Thanks for the response Frank. I just might do that. And if I receive it at a later date, then it's okay. Got a few backlog games I'm looking to play anyways.

      Hi realag,

      Unfortunately BackerKit doesn't offer me an option to stop the emails until I close the project, which is why you keep getting the emails - I apologise about that!

      At this point we are past the deadline where I can guarantee the items you wanted are still available. However, if you login to BackerKit you can still complete your survey (and upgrade) and hopefully the items you wanted are still available.

      Hey Frank, any names of boats? And are you using an Australian fulfillment partner?

      Hey Frank. I've never filled and completed my backerkit survey (was a 1$ pledge) as other financial obligations came up. But I still receive emails from backerkit asking me to complete it. Can we still complete it and receive it in January?
