What's a "standard box?" Do you mean something like a shoe box? An emptied cereal box? A refrigerator box?

I mean the standard NorthStar game box with dancing party people on it. See the icon on top of this page.
We backers were promised to receive our games in special edition game boxes WITHOUT the party crowd.

He's talking about this:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1923120194/the-evolutio...
Quote:
Unlocked - $200k - A set of 7 promo cards called "Sharp Teeth" created by Kickstarter backer "Jeremy Kaemmer", a giant Bird Meeple start player token, and a special limited edition box cover for your game(s) instead of the normal retail box cover. These limited edition art covers (shown above) do not have the North Star Games branding logo at the bottom of box.




Pete (helps?)

Maybe you should ask North Star directly instead of going straight to BGG.

My Flight expansion was the standard (retail?) box, but the main game was the promised KS version without the silhouettes.

Didn't particularly bother me. Perhaps they ran out of the good stuff. I was advised to contact customerservice@northstargames.com if I wanted replacements. Not sure if that applied to wrong boxes, or just bent promos and broken start markers. It probably should apply to all though.

I did send them a message via Kickstarter.

It's just odd..I mean, I've backed 307 projects on KS (a bit over the top I guess) and I've never NOT received any promised rewards..

Really odd. I got the games yesterday. My main game has the silhouettes, while the Flight expansion does not.

Not that it matters, I am perfectly fine with both of them.

Edit: typo.

First there was Hearts, then there was Spades, and now we bring you Clubs. The suit of clubs finally gets some respect!

Go to the NorthStarGames.com website and click on the "contact Us" tab. That's the best way to reach Jonathan. He manages our customer service and he will take good care of you!

Hmmm, I didn't even realize that was a "backer perk"! I do appear to have the special non-branded boxes for both Evolution & Flight though. Nifty!

Have a similar error. My fligth box is also the regular retail one.
Haven't heard back from Northstar so far, but I guess they are fully occupied with Essen right now.

Some of us are fully occupied at Essen, but Jonathan is at the office, and he's managing our customer service. The best way to reach him is to click on the "Contact Us" tab on the NorthStarGames.com website. Nick is the person running the Kickstarter campaign, and he is in Essen setting up the booth right now (I need to hurry up and join him!), so it's better not to use the Kickstarter messaging system.

Jonathan sent me a message saying

"I'm unsure what went wrong in this case, but I'm very sorry for the mix-up. I'm forwarding your information to our European distributor so that we can see about getting you a replacement box. If you're going to be at Spiel Essen we can also take care of you there if you let me know before it begins."

Nothing else since then.

I also got the retail box but it was swiftly dealt with after I sent an email to their customer support.

The game has been a smash hit in my group and with Mr Fabulous Lizard on the cover it can rightfully claim the spotlight in my games cabinet.
