I just received an email supposedly from Isaac requesting me to confirm my subscription to a newsletter based on a request when supporting the kickstarter, with the confirmation list going to the aweber domain

This just seems a little odd to me, given that the kickstarter campaign ended about 8 months ago, and I had already been receiving email updates.

Plus I'm always a bit wary of emails that direct to third-party sites (though I have seen aweber mentioned in old Gloomhaven threads).

Has anyone else gotten a similar confirmation request recently?

yes, i did.
I accepted and got the following confirmation mail:

CEPHALOFAIR GAMES
WELCOME!

Thanks so much for deeming me worthy of your inbox. I'll try not to disappoint.
I typically send out a newsletter every month or so with all the big news and some personal insights. And if you ever have any questions about anything, don't hesitate to shoot me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
I hope you are excited about Gloomhaven and all the other cool stuff coming down the pipeline at Cephalofair Games. Stay tuned for lots of awesome news!

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Or do like I do and just interrupt Isaac when you see him playing games at Cons and ask for the latest and greatest. whistle

Thanks for posting this! My invite got sent to the Spam folder so I would have missed it otherwise.

Yeah, I am finally getting around to importing the lists from the last two Kickstarters. Like others have said, the invite could have ended up in your spam, so if you haven't received it and want it, look there, or, as Matt said, just sign up on the website: www.cephalofair.com

Thanks. Nothing in the email seemed TOO fishy (or "phishy"), especially after a forum search revealed mention of aweber in previous discussion, but I thought I'd at least ask.

Thanks for creating the great game, and for the continued involvement

Thanks Isaac! It was at the top of my Gmail spam inbox, one of the only legitimate emails that has been sent there in the last 10 years.

I had the same exact problem. Racked my brain trying to find the newsletter box.

Yeah, I thought it was spam, and forwarded it to Isaac, who confirmed it was real despite the mangled sentence in the email.
