Don't hope, remind them. This game may sell out fast, so they need to make sure they pre-order with their distributor.

Thanks!

Missed the Kickstarter, but put in a pre-order with CoolStuff back in September (along with three other games). Hoping it arrives soon!

Too bad it's taking longer for people who backed premium items (i.e. signed copies) on KS to get their games than those who did not. A bit of a faux paus by Minion in running the fulfillment side of this campaign, IMHO.

Still hoping to get my copy in the next few days, however, although yet to receive a shipping notice from USPS.

I don't see how you honestly think that's a problem and expect 700 people to wait a week for them to get their games, just cause you want it that way. That just doesn't make sense and now you've posted in the KS comments and over here. I don't get what you're after. We're doing our best. All signed copies are going out Monday or Tuesday. You'll have it this week.

In response to the prior post: had I known that there would be a wait of about a week for the signed copies I probably would not have been among the 80 or so people to pay $10 extra for the signed copy. Next time I might be a bit more circumspect in signing up for these "extra" benefits.

On the other hand, this project didn't try to sell copies three months in advance at GenCon like some other recent KS campaigns that I've backed, plus they did make a PnP available, for which I am grateful.

Plus, just got the good news that my copy may be on his way, so hoping to get the game some time before the weekend.

I suppose we should maybe make it more clear in our campaigns that extras and signing takes a bit more time. I guess I thought that would be clear since the designer is in California and I ship from Wisconsin so we have to ship them out there and back again - which eats up a lot of that $10 you spent.

In fact, backers have their copies (or will shortly) at least 2 weeks before stores and online discounters as there was a delay in getting them there with the holiday and all. Official release date for stores at this point is Dec 6th. Chain Reaction was delivered right before GenCon so, agian, backers got theirs before others. We always try to do this.

As for your copy, I personally went to the warehouse today as the regular shipper called in sick and hand packed 67 signed copies myself and hauled them in my truck down to the post office to personally give them to the always annoying employees there. So yes, your copy is in the mail and you should have it hopefully before Thanksgiving.

Hope you enjoy the game.
James
