Are things on track?

When should we expect games to be shipped?

You should probably write directly to Don, not sure he checks BGG forums so often. In the september update, he wrote about some delays, and said late january / early february release would be realistic. Then add the shipping time, so I hope to play the game in march.

Ah, take your time and do it right. By the time I'm done digesting the Speil games, I'll be ready for this

Paul-Henri is right. I have had a few personal delays, as well as issues with art delays, and obtaining photos for Forged in Steel.

With that being said, I am happy to announce that manufacturing is under way. The December/January time frame is usually quite slow for most game manufacturers. This gives us a chance to make up some ground for an early Spring fulfillment!

I just recently posted a new Kickstarter update for Hands in the Sea here:

Can one join the ks project at this point or should we just wait for a general release date, hopefully announced here?

The Kickstarter campaign is closed, but you can pre-order games off our site here:

http://www.knightworksgames.com/store/

We will post updates on BGG when the games arrive, but the pre-order pricing will have closed by then.

We use USPS to avoid any problems. I have heard of issues with other carriers, such as FedEx and UPS.

I am looking for international distributors, but I currently do not have one at this time. I do plan on using a warehouse in either London or France, though.

Thanks Don, that is indeed good news! So if i order the game from the website will i be receiving it from within Europe?

The shipping costs are still $30 maybe it is not setup yet.

You are very welcome. Yes, orders for EU customers will ship within the EU and avoid the VAT. The costs for me to ship the pallets to the warehouses, paying the VAT myself, and shipping/storage fees are still keeping me in the $30 range unfortunately.

I will leave a note for myself to recalculate my costs again. The last time I looked into it was earlier this year during the KS campaign.

That's awesome... I'll be waiting on that.

Again, thank you!

I missed the KS campaign but preordered on the website back in April. Since then the addons have been added to the preorder page. Is there a way to purchase the addons still and get them added to my current order? I also sent this question through the website itself.

We are finishing up the final touches on the Pledge Manager this weekend. Hopefully, by the middle of this coming week, we will be able to send out the invites to both backers and preorder folks. Once you have access to the Pledge Manager you will be able to add any additional items and also update your address.

Really? You have access to the pledge manager? Is it still open? I didn't get my invite. I guess I should contact them.

That sounds more like the Kickstarter survey than the pledge manager.

I apologize for not seeing this sooner. The Kickstarter surveys were sent out a few weeks ago; however, we ran into a delay in setting up the products and shipping settings for the Pledge Manager. I have been trying to find a solid block of time to knock out the last few items necessary before sending out invites. I am currently at a local convention in Denver, but hopefully I will have everything ready to go soon.
