I am not an original backer so I cannot post on the Kickstarter page, but last I heard they were planning on releasing their second wave of the game in October, which I am sure will be pushed off. I do not know what they are intending to include in this second wave though, is it the stretch goals, some stretch goals, the retailer expansions, some of the other expansions, etc? Has anyone seen any word on this, or have any suggestions how to sift through all the posts to find this myself?

Only the base game shipped without stretch goals for backers so in October stretch goals add ons an expansions and retailer expansions are supposed to ship

IIRC everything left will be shipped in wave 2. So all stretch goals and add-ons. They won't want to split shipping again or risk cutting into their margins due to additional shipping costs.

I'd also bet that wave 2 shipping will be delayed from October considering wave 1 shipping is still happening in Asia, Australia/NZ, South America, Italy and Spain. Also it's a lot more work coordinating shipping the mixed packages (add-ons) than just base games by language.

While I love the game I have to agree that they really dropped the ball when it came to fulfillment and I'm very worried about wave 2, as it is going to be much more complex logistically. As you've stated, there will be a lot of variation as to what goes into each package.

My guess is that they'll start with the "all-in" pledges as they will be the easiest to sort out and go from there. That is how ship naked handled the Conan fulfillment. Speaking of which, they really should consider engaging ship naked for the remainder of this campaign, as well as future ones.
