"Project Update #37: Est Delivery Time
Posted by Minion Games
Given all the delays that have happened I asked for a specific delivery date from our manufacturer and they stated that the mass production should be done by the end of September. It will then take about 25 days by boat to get to the USA. At that time it takes a week or so to get to our warehouse."

doesnt sound too good?

I believe that James is having copies for Essen pickup for backers air mailed direct. Don't quote me on that though. Cheers,

Oliver

Correct. I will be doing EVERYTHING in my power and holding the manufacturer responsible to getting copies at Essen. At this point I fully expect 102 copies to be on hand for the show.

As a Essen-pickup backer myself I'd like to know if the scifi coins I've pledged for in your other Kickstarter campaign will be ready for pickup at the fair, too? That'd be great indeed.

But one thing is making me nervous: I pledged for a Essen-pickup spot but later changed that to International delivery via contacting you guys. The game's status never changed from 'Essen attendee' to 'International Delivery'. Now I'd love to pick up the game at Spiel 2013 and don't know if I'll be able to or not... how can I be certain where my game'll be?

Hi,

I also backed the game including international shipping because I thought that I get the game earlier then picking it up at the Spiel (and therefore I was willing to pay for shipping). Now it seems that the geeks choosing 'Essen pickup' will get the game earlier.

The earliest copies to hit the "Streets" will be at Essen. Again, I'm spending nearly $4,000 to attend that show and the only reason I'm going is to show and sell our newest products. So it will cost me very dearly if any of the products don't show up at the show - thus I'm pressing really hard.

At this point I'm expecting all our latest kickstarter stuff to be at the show and we'll set aside the inventory for all those backers that want to pickup at the show.

If you had paid shipping and want to change to ESSEN pick please change that in Backerkit which will then give you some extra money to spend on some more add-ons. If you need/want a refund of shipping you'll need to contact us directly at the show or after the show and we'll provide that.

I should have at the show:
- Hegemonic
- Metal Future Coins
- Giant Foam Dice
- Manhattan Project
- Manhattan Project: Second Stage
- Manhattan Project: Nations 1
- Tahiti
- Kingdom of Solomon

I should have supply of the stretch goals (bags, arbitor token, roman coins, etc) at the show, but small amounts.

We'll be in Hall 1 booth A-100 right up front this year.

James

I have checked both Backerkit accounts and Hegemonic's still set to 'Essen Spacer', while the SciFi coins don't seem to have such an option.

I'll print out both Backerkit Order Confirmations to take with me to Spiel, so there won't be any problems with me picking up my stuff from you guys.

EDIT: How will you guys handle us backers with a lot of different pledged-for coins? Will our orders be pre-sorted/bundled or will that be done while we're visiting your staff at the booth?

The SHIPPING option/addon at Backerkit should have a PULLDOWN menu that lists a PICKUP A ESSEN option.

Bringing printouts would be best, yes. We'll give you what you ordered when you stop by the booth as many people don't actually show up when they say they will and pre-sorting it all is something I won't have time for there.

The first time I'll have the games/coins in hand will be at Essen.

Hi James,

many thanks for the answer and the option that we can change to Essen pickup and will get back our money. Awesome as always. thumbsup

So I will change in Backerkit and I will bring the order confirmations with me.

I'm one who wants the money for shipping back instead of spending it for more stuff (but only because I own the majority of the Minion Games games) but this is something we can arrange after the fair. No problem for me because you are a guy/publisher one can trust!

As someone who didn't back the game (didn't see it!), will it be available to buy in Essen, and how much will it be?

102 copies are being shipped in to the show. About half of them are pickups from the campaign. The other half will be sold at 60 Euro to help pay for the air freight shipping getting them there.
