I went to check on the website because I had it on my notes that it would be available in October, but now the site has it shipping in November. Was I mistaken the first time? Or has this game really been delayed by a month? I'm not that impatient; just ordered Paperback along with Hardback in June and had a hankering to play a word game the other day...cry

You probably weren't mistaken, the Kickstarter had an October 2017 delivery date. On September 7th there was a video posted of them unboxing the sample from the factory, it mentioned a few tweaks and a "Go" for printing and hopefully (if all goes well) they'd get it to us in November.

That's the last the Kickstarter backers have heard about it. If it's only a month late, and delivered this year, I'll be happy

Ah, thanks muchly. But I wasn't a backer; I was a preorder. Does this mean I'll get mine even later?

Shouldn't they ship you Paperback since they have that in stock?

I thought so too, but the website says anything else that accompanied the Hardback pre-order would be shipped when it shipped.

Typically any time you include other items in an order with a preorder item, the vendor will hold it until the preordered item comes in so that shipping is only paid once. And the preorders can't fulfill until the game is received from the factory (and shouldn't fulfill until backer shipments have gone out from the Kickstarter, in general).

Preordered my copy today, and the website still lists October 2017 for shipping.

We all know that kickstarter can ship later than the expected date. A month off, is nothing to be concerned about.

Tim Fowers is a veteran kickstarter, so I am not at all worried.

I am sure we all have plenty of other games we can play whilst we wait for Hardback

For those keeping track the estimated delivery is now January. For a "veteran kickstarter" this campaign has been rather disappointing.
Slow status updates are not great, but announcing a new kickstarter project while the current one is slipping 3 months is just poor etiquette.

Well then be glad you've never backed from Petersen Games, Tasty Minstrel, Awaken Realms, or pretty much most multiple-project creators.

It depends on what stage the current projects are at. If all the design is done and everything is down to the manufacturer then it doesn't make sense for the creator to sit idle for months waiting for the factory and shipping before starting a new project.

Did you get any conformation up front that the game was send?
I haven’t received any news yet...

I am a Kickstarter backer for that game, and I haven't received mine yet.
Last I heard delivery was delayed.

I am also a Kickstarter backer. I received a shipping notification from Ship Naked today. I'll update when I actually receive the package. This absurd icy weather may delay it more than normal, though.

I am a Kickstarter backer and have yet to receive any notifications. This is disappointing based on the number of gamers that have received copies (443 if you believe BGG entry) and the "few" games sold at Pax. I wouldn't blame the weather as I have received 2 Kickerstarter games in December/January with later release dates than this one.

A lot a people put games in their owned category as soon as they pledge for a Kickstarter. I don't believe anyone from the Kickstarter has received their games yet. (I generally agree games shouldn't be sold at conventions before their Kickstarter delivers, though.)

I am not blaming the shipping date on weather. I am saying that the length of time from "on a truck" to "on my doorstep" may be longer because of the unusual weather. I live in the deep South. We have ice. It is very strange.

I pre-ordered from the website and received mine today. Looks like Kickstarter backers have started receiving their copies as well, according to the comments on the campaign page.
