Hello Everyone!

Since our last update, we've finalized assets, art and texts for production. It has been crazy busy, but we did it! We now have the final prototypes for Centauri Saga Core, Upgrade Pack v1.5, 6-Player Expansion, Special Ops Expansion, and the Legacy Game Expansion.

During the original Centauri Saga Kickstarter campaign, the 6-Player expansion was placed inside the Core box. This time, because of the Upgrade Pack and the multiple combinations of backer choices, we could not package in the same way. So, we decided to create a separate box for this add-on.

Here are photos of all the game's paper components... all except for Legacy. Sorry! No Spoilers! BUT we are trying to come up with a creative way to show you content without giving away too much. Be ready for another update soon!

Timeline

As of now, all paper components are in production. All miniatures except the two new Bosses have been produced and packaged in zip-lock bags. We are still waiting for the mold of the two new Bosses (Damocles and Star Ripper) to finish. Our current projection is that it will be done by the end of this month.

Once the mold is done, it takes about 1 week for the new miniatures to be produced. By that time everything else will be ready, so only packaging will be left.

Our goal is to have the games on the boats from China by mid-October. It takes about 25 days for them to reach Europe, Canada and US, and then about a week for the hubs to process the orders and start shipping out packages.

The first wave of backers should start receiving their games by the end of November. Asian backers will be first, then backers in Germany, the UK, Toronto (Canada) and Illinois (US). These are the locations of our hubs. Everyone else will follow about a week later. Please note, remote locations or countries with more complicated postal services will take longer (e.g. Australia, Brazil, Russia, Mexico).

We will do our best to keep you informed every step of the way!

Pledge Manager

With the prototypes in our hands, we now have the exact sizes and weights for each package, and we can finish shipping costs calculations. Our goal is to send you invitations for our Pledge Manager by the end of this week.

In our Pledge Manager you will be able to:

Adjust your add-ons
Declare your shipping address
Add extra accessories or products you may have missed

Hello Uncivil,
Basically we changed some of them that were not working as they should and correct also typo or art mistakes . People who owned the older version of cards and got the upgrade pack may use them as they want . Looking forward for your scenario. When ready please send it to boardgames(at)vesuviusmedia.com
