It would be nice to see a bit of new about progress, especially about the game boards.

Tried the New Map several times and it is great, none on a board just yet though. Otherwise, lots of components at the various factories...

Game boards will be the final print. We'll work with the budget we have after the rest is built. We just didn't collect the best amount for those boards. Probably printing 500. Pre sales for boards is still up at our shopify address!

Any estimate yet on when things might start shipping?

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

I believe they'll be at Essen selling their other game for the year, plus this is the busy time of year for most manufacturers as they try and prep for the holidays...

Based on my experience with Kickstarter projects it's usually six to twelve months from funding to shipping (although the actual numbers can vary a lot). This makes me think it will ship early next year - but I have no special insights into this project and no basis for saying that other than experience with other crowdfunded games.

So it might be shipping tomorrow. laugh

I can safely say not next year, and not tomorrow! Sometime on this side of in between the two. Many factory workers have Cave Evil on their minds at the moment.

Ok, so probably not before Samhain. I tried getting Fury of Dracula for this time of year with no luck. Maybe I'll settle for Letters from White Chapel.

Alas, the hopeful Samhain deadline will not come to pass. But, do know November will be a dire month during which all pre-orders will ship!

"UPDATE! We were hoping all parts would be ready to pick up this week to be boxed but A few elements are still in limbo: as for the base game, Box and Rule Book. And those still stuck in the extras department: the board and bandanas.

Manufacturers gave us a date of "close to Dec 6" for box, but told us not to set that in stone. The bandana and rules will be finished well before that. These companies are doing a fantastic job, and at this stage we can't really rush them along.

In some cases they have never worked with board game elements. The die cut pieces on the first edition alone took 4 weeks to set up. They had never cut game pieces before and the pieces would scatter everywhere after each pop for several weeks. Eventually they wrangled the die.

As soon as we have games in our hands shipping will commence, starting with order #1001 and going up. If elements, such as the board are still not in our hands at this time we'll address every board-less order and return to those orders as soon as we have them.

Darkest apologies for delay!"

Thank you for the update and it sounds like things are going really well. The delays you're facing are pretty minor compared to things I've had happen on other crowdsourced campaigns, so take it in stride.

I had boards on my order and I'm fine with waiting until they're done. Again, thank you very, very much for going forward with the mounted boards. It will increase my ability to get this game to the table many times over. And that's a Good Thing.
