I am confused about on what we get from the kickstarter. I pledged at $99 for all chapters, and received "Box One" so far. They talk about box two and three in the updates, but are these equal "all chapters" OR boxes released after KS with no ties whatsoever. I dont understand how my pledge differs from the $66 one.

There were originally going to be two boxes of cards from the KickStarter. At the request of the distributor, those two sets were broken into three boxes instead to make it easier to sell.

Sources:

* https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/loneshark/the-apocrypha...

So these three boxes (The World, The Flesh, The Devil) represent "all chapters" as promised in the KickStarter, and you should expect to get all three.

I'm not sure about the timing of delivery. Last I was following, the two expansion boxes (Flesh/Devil) were supposed to be delivered at the same time - sometime in the future.

The latest update (#54, Jan 31st): "Apocrypha: The Flesh is at the printer and we've cleared them to begin printing. We expect that to start in the next few weeks, while we wrap up The Devil and get it to them as they finish production on The Flesh. It's a complex process that we'll get updates on as it goes along, and we'll share them with you when we have details. For now, we're just approving what we get back and letting the printing professionals do what they do."

Having witnessed unintended printer delays [of tabletop games] first-hand over the past 20+ years, I'm estimating to-backer shipping of boxes two and three sometime in May. My basis is that they wrap work on The Devil by the end of February*, get its files to the printer, go through proofing, then printing, shipping, customs, individual packing, and then individual shipping.

*Note: Not based on insider knowledge of the state of The Devil -- just based on 'reading the tea leaves'.

Hmm... And my previous experience suggests adding (at least) 2 months to any date that seems reasonable. If it arrives earlier, great! If not, my expectations won't be hurt.

May would be nice. I'm hoping to see the extra boxes arrive sometime mid- or late-summer.


Edit: Just to be clear, I have no inside knowledge or idea when things will ship. The May guess sounds totally possible if everything goes well. But KickStarter has conditioned me to expect the worst case scenario as a starting point, and go from there.

Still no shipping dates, but there's more general information.
