Update #7: Expedition Zetta: Day 12 - The Planetary System Board

Quote:
Today we reached the 70% mark. The campaign moves a little slower now but it's quite usual with a mid kickstarter slump. We're still moving forward but at a slower pace. So with 18 days left it looks like we can still fuel up and put in higher warp before the campaign is over. And get some stretch goals before it's over.

In today's update our designer Jon Manker will go through his process in designing the Planetary System Board.

In today's update we will announce the results of the votes on which countries to add to the game. But first we want to present you with another thing we have been working on: a new How-to-play video for Expedition Zetta!

We hope you will enjoy it and that it will be easier to understand how the game works. And also something that we can share to more potential backers.

Update #12: Expedition Zetta: Day 24 - Components Part II + Almost there!

Quote:
It's exciting times!

Hi alla backers! We are at the moment very close to 100% funding, at 97% it's so near it's intense. The distant galaxies and planetary systems are not just a dream anymore, they are so close we can almost touch them. And all because of you.

In today's update our designer Jon will continue going through the components in Expedition Zetta. As usual that text is last in the update. A short passage with a reminder on the naming of four exoproducts we need your help with, and finally a little thought on the last couple of days and stretch goals.

We are really racing through the stretch goals now! When I woke up two more stretch goals had been unlocked. That makes it a total of 7 stretch goals, one is a new ship card and unique figurine (!). As well as 19 cards (Exo product, Country and Crew) and 51 flag markers added to each copy of Expedition Zetta through pledge levels.

With around 32 hours left it looks like we could reach some more. Wow!

Quote:
It's less than 20 hours left of the campaign, and our progress is amazing! Since the last update yesterday we have literally blown through 5, no 6 (got the 6th when I wrote this update), new stretch goals. It's almost like we have achieved maximum warp

Update #16: A big thank you!

Quote:
Wow! Just wow!

Together we did it... we aimed for the stars and got there in our mothership Thank you so much all of you, we are so happy right now!

This has been a truly nerve wracking campaign! One day we could get a lot of new backers while the next as many dropped out. But finally we got of the ground and shot off in awe inspiring speed, and the last couple days before the end of campaign we just rushed through the stretch goals. And to end it all in the last minute of the last day we unlocked one more stretch goal at $29,500. We didn't even have time updating the campaign page before editing was closed when kickstarter ended. But don't worry, that stretch goal is unlocked even if it doesn't show in the kickstarter page.

SPIEL 2017

As mentioned previously update Ion Game Design was at SPIEL 2017 in Essen and had the fun task to arrange play test sessions We had a steady stream of people interested in playing Expedition Zetta. Some of them were backers. It was really nice to meet those of you who came to our booth, to try out Expedition Zetta or just to say hello.

Update #23 - Chinese new year, production and finally...

Quote:
Hi backers,

This will be just a short update from a cold and snowy Sweden

Production and fulfilment plan
Since the Chinese New Year has started now we do not have much news about production. Ningbo Eastar will complete the sample and have it sent to us as soon as they are back in office. As mentioned in previous update the new estimated delivery is end of April/ May. Once we start the fulfilment we will also start sending out the portraits made by our artist Johanna Westerlund for those of you who backed the pledged level "Zetta Pioneer".

In regards to fulfilment we have still not made the final decisions who to use. We are at the moment still having discussions with three fulfilment centers and will be making the final decision soon and will of course then be updating you.

Update #24 - Sample production

Quote:
The process of producing Expedition Zetta is moving forward, slowly but steady.

Sample production

The manufacturer Ningbo Eastar has after returning from Chinese New Year now continued with the sample production. They are at the moment reviewing the artwork for pre-press and have contact with our art director to fix some details with the rules booklet, the cards and the boards so they are in a correct format to start printing. As we are writing this the third revision have just been submitted to their experts and it seems like this will pass on all factors. At the same time Ningbo Eastar has also started producing samples of the 3D ship miniatures and have had Skype calls with Jon regarding possible modifications. There may have to be tweaks to the models when it comes to gaps and grooves in order to make it look its best when mass produces.

The images below are from Ningbo Eastar's factory in China, showing test samples of the 3D models.

Update #25 - Production process and fulfilment centers

Quote:
Production process

We are currently bouncing test sample feedback with our new contact person at the manufacturer Ningbo Eastar. Our focus is on quality and to make Expedition Zetta as good and as beautiful as it can be. Expedition Zetta is a game with well over 1000 components so it is a hard, but fun job to do

The Cards, box, space ship tests, cloth bags, wooden tokens and the and rulebook are more or less finalized. The boards and plastic tokens have been approved in all ways but we still wait for images of the final test samples. The punch board is being revised but should be done in the beginning of next week. The plastic inlay is being manufactured.

Update #26 - Sample production continues

Quote:
Spring has arrived to Sweden, better weather and sun We would have liked to have the mass production started for Expedition Zetta by now, but unfortunately we are still working with the sample, This means that the date when the games will arrive is going to be pushed back another couple of weeks.

The good news is that the sample production is going well and the different parts are looking good. Ningbo Eastar is extremely careful in their preparation of the components, which cause this step to take much longer time than expected. But at the same time this commitment will only improve the end result so we see it as something positive.
