Greetings, crafters!

If you missed the Kickstarter campaign for Glassworks, good news! You can still get all of the contents that make Glassworks "deluxe" by picking up the bundle that includes Glassworks and the Glassworks Plus Pack, which is available only through our online store at GamesWorthPlaying.com or by visiting us at conventions.

The Glassworks Plus Pack includes 2 Gather cards (Farm and Dungeon), 2 Brown "Farm" dice, 12 "Escape the Dungeon" cards, 6 Apprentice cards, and 24 Queen's Jubilee cards.

Happy crafting!

Sorry if I'm just confused, but is the Plus Pack something included in the KS?

I am confused about why reviewers in the U.S. have had copies of this long enough to post a review and kickstarter supporters still don't have the product.

Printers typically send us a few copies of the game while mass production is going on. These first-off-the-line copies are air-shipped to us so we can check for any major errors right away. Afterwards, those copies are used as review copies and for other promotional purposes. Think of them like Advance Reader Copies of books that are printed and distributed to proofers and reviewers before they go on sale to the public.

The bulk shipment of games will be delivered on-time to backers in November, in line with the Estimated Release time that was listed on the campaign page.

No worries! I understand the confusion.

There's only one version of the game ("standard"). The deluxe-only components were packaged and bagged separately. So, when deluxe backers receive their shipment, they'll get a copy of Glassworks and a small bag containing all of the deluxe-only components that they can add to their games.

We've decided to offer these packages with the additional components as a direct-only product, but we wanted to make it clear to retail customers that these were additional materials to use in the game, not the exact same game just with upgraded components, hence the "Plus Pack" instead of "Deluxe". We're moving away from the Standard/Deluxe naming convention for future titles to make this absolutely clear.

So, if you backed for the Deluxe Edition on Kickstarter, you already have everything and don't need to buy the Plus Pack. If you're buying it at retail, you can choose to buy just Glassworks or buy Glassworks with the Plus Pack for the additional components.

Here’s an unboxing video that better shows the separation:

Game Salute hasn't updated the kickstarter since August 30th.
Funny how they post here on Oct 8th while leaving the backers that made the expansion possible hanging.
Well, actually, not funny at all.

EDIT: Voila! Within hours of my post, an update appears promising the games by the end of November. This is not the first time this has happened. I suggest not holding your breath.

EDIT 11/15/16: Games arrived. Cool.

Hi there--

Any idea when the preorders are expected to ship, now that the backer copies have gone out?
