Happy New Year - Are you ready to play?

Shipping Status: Shipping has started, estimated completion date 21st January

Hey everyone!

Happy New Year to you all, I hope you've all had a fantastic holiday season and are ready to start 2019 with The City of Kings and Vadoran Gardens!

I have some good news, fulfilment has started!

The Goal

The goal is simple: To ship every game within the next 17 days.

Right now all of our fulfilment centres have everything they need and are working on making this happen, they have all confirmed they will have shipped everything by the 21st January.

When will I get my game?

To be clear, the games will leave the fulfilment centres by the 21st, this means some of you will get your game as early as next week, and some of you might not receive them until the end of the month. This really depends on where you live in the world and how long the game takes to travel to you. You will get a notification when your game has been processed by your fulfilment centre.

Who is shipping my game?

America - Quartermaster Logistics
QML will begin shipping later today and should process the bulk of the orders next week.

Once your game has been shipped, you will receive a tracking code from QML and it should take up to 6 working days (typically 2 - 3) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

Asia - VFI
VFI have already started processing orders for those of you who live in the more distant regions and will continue shipping games now until fulfilment is completed.

Once your game has been shipped, you will receive a tracking code from VFI and it should take up to 7 working days (typically 4 - 5) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

Australia/New Zealand - Unicorn Games
 Unicorn Games will begin shipping games early next week.

Once your game has been shipped, you will receive a tracking code from Unicorn Games and it should take up to 10 working days (typically 2 - 3) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

Canada - Starlit
Starlit will be starting shortly and will process all orders fairly quickly once they begin.

Once your game has been shipped, you will receive a tracking code from Starlit and it should take up to 10 working days (typically 4 - 5) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

Europe and everyone else - Gamesquest
Gamesquest will begin processing orders next week and will send out the first games on the 11th.

Once your game has been shipped, you will receive a tracking code from Gamesquest.

Europe: It should take up to 10 working days (typically 3 - 4) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

Rest of the world: It should take up to 12 working days (typically 7 - 8) for your game to arrive from the moment it has been dispatched.

What about the damages mentioned in the last update?

There's no need to worry about those, I have put them to one side and will deal with them alongside fulfilment.

Everyone will be shipped a game in perfect condition.

Thank you to everyone who offered your support in the last update, it was truly appreciated and as always I am greatful for all of you helping to make this happen.

What's next?

I'll be sending out more updates in the coming weeks keeping you all posted of the shipping progress.

I hope you all have a fantastic 2019 and look forward to seeing your photos of the games as they arrive.

      I received an email at 7:01am (CST Southern USA) today when I was asleep (I work overnight) that my box was shipped!

      Then at 2:04pm a knock at the door and a GIANT BOX OF GREATNESS was left sitting. That is SOME fast shipping time! (or a really slow notification email) either way it all looks so completely fantastic and I cannot wait to dig in, thank you and great campaign!!

      I didn't get any email from Quartermaster Logistics, but I got a Fedex Delivery Manager tracking email indicating pickup from Quartermaster Logistics, and City of Kings is the only game that meets the timing.
      I don't know if my email just got lost or delayed - I checked my spam folder and it didn't end up there.
      Regardless, looking forward to playing City of Kings!

      Frank I had one question . I love the new fold out boards . Will the base game character boards be updated with this new fold out style so they all match ? My ocd will be driving me crazy if they don’t match ! Lol

      Hi there - A couple of days back I got a mail titled "SF Shipping Problem" from office@vfi.asia
      The mail reads: Hi,
      We found that there was something wrong with your SF express delivery.
      Can you please provide your correct shipping information,such as phone number,address and so on?
      Thank you for your cooperation.
      Regards
      Heart
      Shipping Manager
      VFI Asia
      I've lived in this area for 25+ years and realise we'll get non-perfect English mails but I'm wary to reply to this since 1) It doesn't have my name, 2) It doesn't list the address they have on file and 3) it doesn't mention CoK at all ... I sent them a reply with these concerns but have yet to hear from them. Anyone else get a strange mail like this?

      Hi Noah, I'm sorry you feel this way.

      Over the past few months I have been moving house and currently don't have the facilities to do videos like I normally do. I've tried to keep people updated about this in updates but I apologise if you missed it.

      While I don't have my usual video options, I have been trying to do live streams via Facebook using my laptop camera and have mentioned these in a few updates - In fact at the bottom of the update with the photos I mentioned I'd be doing a stream later that day.

      During these streams I have shown all of the components, samples and been through everything as it has arrived as much as possible. Unfortunately however due to my current situation and limited setup I've not been able to create content in other ways.

      You can find these videos here:

      https://www.facebook.com/pg/CityofGamesHQ/videos/

      I believe the following 2 videos had me walking through a lot of the content, but some items were mentioned on other streams instead.

      I hope this helps!

      Wow that’s disappointing one pic of the minis in a box and a pic of the expansion box . After spending around 200$ it would have been nice to see a video of minis . The update didn’t even show the minis for the expansions .

      Is "Starlit" the same as Starlit Citadel, out of Vancouver, BC? Just curious.

      +1@Adam Wickham. This has been an excellently run KS and delivering pretty much on time. Others should take note as an example. Well done Frank.

      Why was there no unboxing video showing off the game miniatures or anything ? Maybe I missed it ?

      I'm in the middle of a GQ fulfilment mess right now. Thanks for the heads up so that I can brace myself for the next desaster shipping...

      Nice update! QML normally does a great job so confident that should go well. I really hope for our European friends that Gamesquest runs this smooth (they need some good press these days).

      @Frank, I'll join you in the finger crossing! I'lll even go as far as to put my faith in your powers of second sight! ;-)
      Nothing would make me happer than getting proven wrong!

    25. Adam Wickham on

      Amazing update. Also wanted to add, Frank, you have made a fan for life with the way you have run your kickstarters. You can expect me to be there for any project you do in the future. The amount of effort you put into your work is inspiring and other companies should seriously take notes. Bravo.

      Hey Peter "Apple Head" Andersson. Let's keep our fingers crossed as I have a feeling things will go smoother with this campaign than many others. I know there's a lot of doubt but I have confidence in Gamesquest this time around and believe they might end up surprising a few people.

      Let's see what happens.

      Thanks for the update!
      If gamesquest is involved then I'd be very happy if the first game leaves their storage by the end of the month. I'm still waiting on games that should have been sent from their warehouse at the end of november.
      I'm not saying that any of this is your fault Frank. You have done a great job on the two campaigns! Gamesquest on the other hand...
