Shipping Update

Hi backers!

Just a quick update on the progress of our shipments:

Asia - Shipping now! 

The depot has been processing the orders and we expect them to go out this week. Backers should receive tracking soon! 

Australia and New Zealand - About to Ship! 

The shipment has arrived on schedule and we sent out our address reminders last week. We’re finalizing addresses today and will be shipping out orders as soon as we can. If you have any last-minute changes to your address, let us know immediately at info@wiggles3d.com

USA - On Schedule - Finalize Addresses! 

Our container has arrived at the port on schedule! Now we are waiting for it to clear customs and be shipped out to our depot for processing… which might happen quickly or might take a while. Either way, we’ll be sending out address reminder emails shortly so that we have everything in place when the shipment arrives. Please make sure that your survey is complete and your address is correct! You can go to https://curses-foiled-again.backerkit.com/ and enter your e-mail address to see the information we have on file for you. If you need help, email us at info@wiggles3d.com or send us a message through Kickstarter or BackerKit. 

Canada - Delayed :( 

Unfortunately, our shipment to Canada has been delayed. We had a booking in place, but the freight line cancelled the voyage and we had to re-book on a different ship. As a result, the earliest date that we expect to be able to start sending shipments to Canadian backers is December 18, which is uncomfortably close to Christmas (and customs or port delays could push it back even further). 

Unfortunately, this means that it is very unlikely that Canadian backers will have their games by Christmas. As Canadians ourselves, we really wish we had better news for our Canadian backers, but rest assured that we will do everything we can to improve upon this date and will keep you advised of any new information. 

We still plan to host a pickup event here in London, Ontario, but we are now thinking that it will need to take place in the new year. We’ll send out an email soon to get a sense of how many Canadian backers are interested in participating in this event. 

Europe - On Schedule! 

The shipment for our European depot is on schedule, and we expect it to arrive in England on December 6. We will send out address confirmation emails as that date approaches.

Ready to Ship Asia!

Greetings backers!

We have some updates to share about the shipments traveling to our fulfillment depots.

Asia

The first shipment has already arrived by truck to our depot in China. This depot handles shipments to our backers in Asia, as well as a few other countries not handled by our other depots. We have already sent out address reminder e-mails to those of you who will receive your games from the China depot. If you received a reminder, please make sure that your survey has been completed and your address finalized. You can go to https://curses-foiled-again.backerkit.com/ and enter your e-mail address to see the information we have on file for you. If you need help, e-mail us at info@wiggles3d.com or send us a message through Kickstarter or BackerKit.

Australia and New Zealand

The next depot to receive games will be the one that handles Australia and New Zealand. We expect to send out address reminders for those countries around November 19, then hopefully start shipping a week or so later.

Europe, US and Canada

If you live in Europe, US or Canada, then the ocean freight will take a little longer to arrive. We plan to send out address reminders for these regions at the end of November, then ship on the first or second week of December.

However, please keep in mind that while these dates are based on the best information we have now, they could change based on factors out of our control, such as port congestion or customs inspections. We are monitoring the shipments every day and will let backers know as soon as we receive any new information.

Production Progress and Spooky Timer App Update

Hi Backers,

Exciting news! The factory has completed production of the games!

With production complete, we’ve booked the shipments from the factory to our five fulfillment depots and all of these should all be sailing out in the next week or so. Travel time varies by depot, of course, but we’re optimistic that we’ll be able to ship out all backer rewards in December as we promised during our campaign. Of course, there are still some factors that could cause delays out of our control, such as port congestion and customs inspections, but we will notify you by update if those should arise.

In the meantime, please make sure that your survey has been completed and your address is accurate. If you need to check your survey, you can go to https://curses-foiled-again.backerkit.com/ and enter your e-mail address to see the information we have on file for you. And, as always, if you need help with the process, don’t hesitate to e-mail us at info@wiggles3d.com or send us a message through Kickstarter or BackerKit.

London, Ontario Pick-Up Event

We’re planning to host a pick-up event sometime in December for backers local to our hometown of London, Ontario. We have not yet decided on a location or time for the event, but we will keep you posted with an update closer to the date. At that time, we’ll provide details and start making a list of backers who would like to pick up their games.

We look forward to hosting the event and meeting those of you who can make it here!

Spooky Timer App Update

To celebrate both the Halloween season and the upcoming release of the Curses expansion, we’ve released a spooky update for the 5-Minute Dungeon timer app. The update features a new, deliciously creepy narrator who comes with his very own Curses-themed background and music score. The dungeon just got a whole lot spookier!

If you don’t have the app yet, you should download it! It’s the perfect companion to any 5-Minute Dungeon game, it’s free, and it’s available for Apple, Android and Windows devices.

Thanks again for all your support!

Production Underway!

Hi Backers,

You’ll be excited to hear that we’ve approved the print proofs for the games and production is now in progress at the factory! We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the production and shipping schedule.

In the meantime, here’s a little glimpse at the final packaging for the box covers:

Pretty sweet, huh?

A Project to Watch

Congratulations to our friends at Rabbiteer, LLC for their successful launch of Dungeon Derby on Kickstarter!

Dungeon Derby is an easy-to-learn, push-your-luck racing game where players represent clans whose “Champion” is racing through a dungeon. The game sports a great mix of strategy and luck as cards are played to help or harm racers and spells are cast to change the flow of each race. In the end everyone leaves the races as winners, but only the player with the most wealth can claim he has mastered the dungeon!

Sound like your kind of fun? Check it out on Kickstarter.

Sneak Peek At The New Tray

Posted by Wiggles 3D (Creator)

Hello Backers!

One of the commitments we made to you at the start of this project was that we would redesign the game tray that comes with the larger box. Why? Well, although the original Kickstarter edition game tray did a great job of holding everything, and even had extra slots for future expansions, it didn’t have enough space to hold a full game plus expansion if you put your cards in sleeves.

We knew that many of our backers like to use sleeves, so we put our thinking caps on and got to work on a new tray design. It turned out to be a challenge, since the full game comes with 365 cards and they take up a lot of space when sleeved. At the same time, we didn’t want unsleeved cards to be too loose in the slots either! But after a lot of measurement and design work, some discussion with the factory, and several prototypes, we came up with a tray that we think is perfect. And today, we’re excited to share it with you!

The New Tray

 

So what's new in this tray? Well, we added a new vertical card slot in the middle to hold the Boss Cards and Artifacts, and we reduced the number of horizontal card slots from 10 down to 8 so we could make each of them bigger. We also made the card slots a little deeper to secure the cards better, and wider so they could accommodate sleeves.

Here’s a photo of a complete set of unsleeved cards arranged in the tray:

 

If you decide to sleeve your cards, you'll need to store some of your Door Cards in with your Challenge Cards, but otherwise the layout is the same. Here’s what a sleeved set would look like (Player Mats left out to show Boss Mats underneath):
