I am thinking this should be getting pretty close to shipping. Any news from anywhere?

Really glad to hear this. The pre-orders were suppose to get the ship minatures. Do all the games have the minatures then?

Originally that was an incentive to pre-order. It sounds like all the copies may have them.

The benifits of our stretch goals were applied to all copies of the game, so yes, all of them now contain the miniatures.

Thanks for the outstanding support!

It has been 30 days. Are the elves at Game Salute busy unpacking containers?

Yes, we would like an update. It has been two weeks since they should have arrived. A lot of us are very eager to play this!

I really hyped this game during it's kickstarter campaign because I'm convinced this is a great game.

But not hearing anything for such a long time is disapointing!

I can understand that there haven't been many updates during the waiting/manufacturing process ... because nothing could have been said despite "still waiting"...

But now is a time the game actually should SHIP to US under normal cirumstances...
Since they aren't it would have been nice to hear something about the current status.

Ah, just found this as a comment on the kickstarter page from yesterday!

Thanks for the questions (...), I'm sorry for the delay in news. I have been out of town since last week and am just now getting back to catch up on the campaign emails. I can confirm that the container has made it through customs and been received by the game salute warehouse. I will have a more detailed shipping update and fulfillment forecast for you this week.

Thanks

Eric

I also saw this on kickstarter:
Our wait is almost over! Once the games have been sent out you will notified of the expected delivery date through the Kickstarter updates system.
I pre-ordered mine through Game Salute. I wonder if I will get a notice?

I know the preorders will ship out right after the Kickstarter orders, and I can't imagine that Game Salute wouldn't send out a standardized shipping confirmation to their preorder customers, but I can't say for absolute certain.

It will be a separate notification though, not delivered through the Kickstarter system.

Any news on the kick starter shipments. I have not received any notifications on shipping. Hopefully my copy is not being played by a Somalian pirate...

I, too, echo this sentiment I have placed a pre-order with Game Salute and I was under the impression, from one of the Kickstarter updates, that the games had arrived---sometime ago, now.

Does anyone have a better idea of when the games will likely be released? This month, hopefully?

cheers
John

The games have arrived and are being prepared for individual shipment.

Game Salute was hesitant to give me an estimate on the exact date the games would make it out their doors, and I imagine that it's simply because there are so many variables and unknowns to consider. But I can confirm we are very close to shipping out. I would estimate in days not weeks.

Sorry I cant give you a more concrete answer, but the second I have more news I'll pass it along.

Hi Eric,

thank you for the update. I understand that it is very difficult to give a concrete answer, but knowing that it's "days, not weeks" is all that I, at least, needed to know. =)

I look forward to playing your game!

cheers,
John

I do not understand how a company can operate its business without a solid forecast of its shipping plans. You know how long it takes to get a box out the door and you know how many are ahead of you. Simple math tells you when the next set of orders can be filled. How many "variables" can there be. It seems to me that Game Salute just does not want to say how far behind they are.

Something else to consider is that not only did they get three kickstarter titles in, but each of those may have limited edition items, additional expansions, or additional games.

I do think game salute should have a better answer than "not sure" but kickstarter packages do complicate the "throw x in a box and slap a label on it" process.

I had a boss like you once.
He used to say to me and co-workers -
"They order it, we make it then we ship it, whats the fu**ing problem!!"
At the time I used to say to myself, he's right, I'm doing it all wrong!
But now I just think he was an ignorant twat that had no grasp on what it took to accomplish things.
Sometimes people are working as hard as they can to get things done, you just don't see or understand the processes involved and the nuances that appear to trip them up.

However there should always be communication, this is easy, quick and a given in all cases. It has been thin on the ground....
