At GenCon Adam said the boat was "on the water", now I'm not sure if that's true or not, since it only takes 2 weeks for a cargo boat to make it from China to the US once it has actually left port. It takes several weeks to get cargo containers actually loaded onto the boat, so again I'm not sure if he meant that it had actually left or had simply been loaded. Let's say it was on the water, then it should have definitely arrived in the US by now, and the container should be making it's way through customs (that's a happy thought isn't it?). Which could mean they could start shipping to backers within the next 1-3 weeks, and then preorders after that, I'm sure after that the game will go to retail, but if you're planning on buying at retail you really should preorder.

I would not count on the 1-3 week estimate as Wave 1 rewards are to ship before the core game, and unless I am mistaken, no one has received any.

I had another project recently (Tiny Epic Galaxies) provide a tracking link for the container ship their game is on. It's been kinda fun watching the ship leave Singapore, pass Sri Lanka, and now it's headed up toward the Suez Canal.

I don't really think this is particularly useful information - it can take so long for customs and all that - but from a logistical information standpoint, it's pretty interesting.

Sometimes, boats stop in different ports along the way...

It's highly possible that whatever ship KDM containers are on stopped in the Philippines.
Then stopped in the Panama area. Then stopped again somewhere near Florida. And is still inbound to NYC.

Of course, we don't know where the distribution partner is located--or even who they are. But if the original plan was to boat it all to NYC ports, then it's highly possible that the fast boat from China to LA is not the speedometer anyone should be anticipating.
We also do not know an official departure date, so it's hard to approximate anymore exactly than what Adam said during Gencon.

October is the best picture we have.
If we're lucky, some of the first US backers should be getting core games in September!

Of course, the official and long awaited fulfillment update will be the most accurate information we can get...

Maybe for boats going to an east coast port, not hong kong to LA, which is where I believe it's going.

Yeppers. Unless it's stopping off at Atlantis for a quick drop off.

And at gencon Adam's exact words were "it's currently somewhere in the Pacific Ocean" which would lead me to believe it's actually on the way.

Yeah this to me also means that the pre-orders are in october so the KS backers should be getting theirs in Oct. as well but also by the end of september.

I think that's a worse case, slowest possible scenario. He said it could be anywhere between 3 and 8 weeks. So I think that's going off of the 8 weeks.

On another thread on here, somebody actually got tracking info for the Wave 1 items (pinups & promos) with some interesting tidbits in there that are a little annoying to read. Here's the text of the tracking email:

Quote:
Hello Bakcer,

Thank you so much for your patience and support. Your Kingdom Death: Monster kickstarter small reward box is on its way!

Your small reward box includes:
1 x White Speaker: Plastic
1 x Messenger of the Spiral Path (kss_6)

Your small reward box, does not include core games, survivor level rewards or expansions.
You will get a separate email notifying you when that ships.

It may take up to a week for the tracking number provided below to be live.
Your package will be delivered via FedEx SmartPost
Tracking Number: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Promo Rules
The challenge scenarios and associated cards will be provided via PDF November, 2015. Printed versions will be made available at a later date.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at support@kingdomdeath.zendesk.com

Make sure to be as descriptive as you can and to include your backer email or pledge ID # as it will help us help you faster.

Thank you,
- Adam Poots


So Wave 1 is getting fulfilled which must mean that the boats are close. It's about 2-6 weeks from China on boat, so hopefully it's close to getting into the US if they're sending out Wave 1 stuff now. However, it looks like the promos aren't coming with any game content and it's a little unclear how backers will get that stuff. Is that just PNP or are we getting printed cards/rules/etc?

Once the ship docks 3 days to a week to unload (I expect.) Then customs will probably sit on it for a week or two. Then the shipment will have "arrived."
