Illimat is Real
Hello Backers & Friends!
It’s an incredible feeling after two years to see Illimat as a real thing.
In the last week we’ve gone from a few of you receiving your games to now over 90% of you with games in hand or in active transit. By the end of the week we’ll be close to having all of our backers who confirmed their address by the deadline having games in their hands or in transit.
From Tasmania to Tennessee we’re hearing such great feedback on the art, components, and game play. We all put our heart into make this and we’re so glad it shows. The village that made this game happen couldn't be more proud and thankful to you for supporting us.

Ok, here’s some information to share:
We’re here to help, along with your fellow Society of Luminaries members. The Illimat Players group on Facebook just started and they’re already sharing pictures of their personal Okus tokens and Radish recipes.
Wednesday -- the day before Thanksgiving here in the US -- Keith Baker will be doing a livestream to answer any rules questions you might have and give you a rules refresh. You know you need to look like you are working at your desk tomorrow when all you want to do is be home playing games -- so just put this on your calendar as “Important Meeting.“
Grow The Society of Luminaries
People have been asking us what they can do to help spread the word about Illimat. Here are some options if you are so inclined:
- Play the game with friends!
- Share about it on social media
- Review or like it on Amazon. We're not selling on there yet, but we will soon and have a listing for it so you can post a review
- Review, like or log it as owned on Board Game Geek
Long story short, we ran into some scheduling problems with getting the Victory books for the fulfillment times and didn't want them to hold up getting the games to you. These will be printed in January. We’ll be sending you a code so that you can order it from our site free of charge and will keep you updated.
We’ve started to send out 812 cards and will send them in batches each week with all of them out by the end of the year. Keep an eye out on social media for the #812challenge! It’s going to be good, but we’re keeping all of the details mysterious, according to SoL code.
If you live in the US and you have not received your order yet:
There was a kerfuffle with Initiate Pins that kept some rewards from being shipped. The kerfuffle has been resolved and all of the remaining US orders are now being processed with the expectation that they will shipped out by EOD Wednesday. If you’d like to confirm you are part of these shipments please contact blackbox at email@example.com
You are amazingly patient! Your rewards are on track to start shipping out this week.
If you are missing an item in your shipment:
please contact Blackbox: firstname.lastname@example.org and they will address it for you.
