There have been some delays with the European distribution of the KS rewards. Last backers message on January 28th said the games were on the way to the European distributor, so I suspect this is still in progress.

Well, it's been more than 2 weeks now since the last message from Bashka Games, and the games don't show up. Besides, we got no detailed info about the delays, no tracking numbers... We still got nothing.

Even worse, the games are available at some distributors in Europe, at a cheaper price than that the backers paid for supporting the campaign.

It's becoming one of the worst KS I've backed: no detailed info, 8 months of delay, and the game is distributed worldwide before most of the backers can get their copy...

(p.s.: it's terrible to see this advert under the forum: "What's He Building in There? on Amazon.com $39.95". Want my money back!!! And get it thru Amazon! Not only I'd save nearly $25, I'd get it faster at my doorstep!)

Wow! It does seem that certain companies use Kickstarter to appropriate the necessary funds to publish their game and them seem to treat the backers like dirt. Very shoddy business practices should be highlighted and shamed energetically on the geek (and elsewhere for that matter). Sorry to read about how the game can now be purchased on Amazon for a sizable price difference and be delivered to your door while the original backers wait in silence. shake

The designer/publisher are terrible at responding as well. I have contacted them through KS as well as via Facebook with no response to either. I first contacted him BEFORE Christmas, when I first found the game "in stock" at an online retailer in the UK... still waiting.

No matter how good this game and others - I will never buy another of this companies games.
It's been 1 lie to another - and to put on the shelves before your backers get the game is utterly despicable.

For extra pain it is cheaper online than I paid to back it.

companies like this that put the BG business to shame, and make you double take any KS project.

So I'm assuming I'm still not the only person who hasn't gotten their copy?

Yeah, I expect I'll see lots of copies sitting around at Gencon in August as well... who wants to bet I won't have my copy by then? whistle
