The white box (white sample) has arrived. I have not seen it yet myself, but will later today. I'm told that it looks great, so the quality check should go quickly and easily. This quality check involves an examination of an exact duplicate of the game itself in terms of all the specifications (except that nothing is printed on the box/cards/board/etc). This will confirm the quality of the product in terms of the tangible components of the game.

I do not expect there to be any issues, but I will update if we see any problems.

Stay tuned!

Yes, Tobias...
You are right that it would be very exciting to have the game at Essen.

We still hold out a hope that we might be able to get 7 advance copies sent over. 7 is the magic number in this case, because there were 6 Kickstarter backers who selected Essen pick-up, and then it would be great to have an extra copy for demo at the show.

If it turns out that it is possible to do this, we could potentially up that number a bit by asking all of the other backers to let us know if any of them will be at the show.

If this happens, maybe the number will be a few cases total.

This certainly would be very exciting!!!

If this is going to be possible, an announcement will be made VERY soon. If it is not going to be possible, we will be working with the 6 individuals on a one-on-one basis to make sure that they are able to get the game delivered to them in a manner that suites them. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to satisfy these folks (in fact, we are already in communication with them about all this).

Please keep your fingers crossed, and stay tuned!

Here is a little update...

I took a few pictures when I was in our design studio today.

Some were of the "White Box" and others of the proofs.

The white box is not too exciting to see because (of course) it has no printing on it.

The photos of the proofs are not too exciting either, because they have traveled far to be here, and have been folded and unfolded many times, so the nice thick paper is quite crinkled. This makes it hard to photograph well.

The white box is a bit dinged itself (too) due to the long journey.

These things are not meant for the public to see, but...

Let's take a behind the scenes gimps anyway!

I will upload a couple pictures here in a minute which should be available for viewing soon.

I'll tell you what blew me away the most by all this, was seeing first-hand how HUGE the board really is.

2 feet x 3 feet, and when folded shut, it's the better part of an inch thick!

The character cards are very thick too (about the same thickness as the board).

The cards are nice.

Everything is quite nice.

We are giving the factory the big green light!

Make Police Precinct!!!!

Well...

I tried to upload two pictures.

One got declined (The white box), but I have tried again using a different gallery, so it might be available soon.

The other one has been added to the Police Precinct gallery.

Here it is...



Sorry again for the crinkly paper which is hard to photograph well.

Just though you-all might want to get a gimps of a proof from the factory.

Stay tuned...

OK...

The latest attempt to upload the White Box has been foiled.

3rd and last attempt to accomplish this is in progress now.

This time it's an image of the box... AND all of it's contents.

If this doesn't work out, well...

Maybe you-all just weren't meant to see it.

Fingers crossed please...

Drum roll please...

As did I. Been a while since I geek modded. Forgot about all the crap that people try and upload. Blurry. Check. Poorly Rotated. Check. Badly Cropped. Check. Wrong Gallery. Check. Then there are some that I just think look bad, I skip those since I don't have a good reason to decline them. Yes. I'm heartless. With that said, I still approved more than I declined.
