Hi all,

Ok - we are getting there ! Spellbound is a large game so the logistics of getting the game to you required a bit more work than usual ! Although sending out pre-orders is a lot more work for us than just selling the games at Essen we really appreciate the support from those who cannot attend Essen and for the kind comments over the years.

We should be in a position to start asking for money from the weekend onwards You will recall we do not take payment until the game is nearly with you.

A brief update :-

UK pre-orders - a pallet is on its way from Germany to Scotland - we expect it to arrive any day now. Once here, we will ascertain final postage and packing and send you the final details (ignoring our Essen purchases which are on the pallet !).

Europe pre-orders - the games are on their way to a distributor in central Germany. We will have final postage for German orders shortly. For other countries, we will have other postage on an individual basis some time next week. We will be in touch directly shortly.

USA pre-orders - the games are on their way to the US and should arrive in the US almost exactly around Christmas. It will likely take a week or so to get them through customs and to our distributor. Most likely they will be sent out from the distributor at the beginning of January (we are receiving costs re this very shortly which is the final piece of the jigsaw). On the plus side, we have got the games to the US much cheaper than if we had done the same way last year. Details to follow shortly.

Rest of the World - sorry to lump all your countries into one big group! We love the fact that our games go all across the globe so it will bring a smile to our face to send it to your country. Your games are on the pallet to the UK (see above). As soon as they arrive here we will finalise the best way (cheapest and fastest) of getting the games to you. For instance, we have people set up to help in Canada and Australia. Details soon.

Cheers meantime,

Gordon and Fraser

Getting very excited...

I have to admit Christmas will be a little less wonderful without a new Fragor game to try out this month, but I appreciate all of the hard work you guys are doing! On the plus side, January is usually a real bummer, so this will be a nice, bright spot.

Yay! Lance asked already. Now I don't have to look super-impatient.

I want to make sure that I did not miss anything. Do inhabitants of Europe outside EU wait still?

I don't think people are worried the games aren't going to *ever* arrive, but it's the middle of January and (IMO) we were dying to play this in, um, October or November.

I bet there's a good Behind the Scenes story about what-all's been happening, well, behind the scenes.

I'm betting it involves sinister meetings in dark back rooms to find the source of bizarrely over-sized figurines, a tragic romance taking place amidst a secret battle waged among the Essen vendor halls, epic sea voyages through hurricane weather and hair raising escapes from evil customs agents.

I fully expect it will be the subject of next year's Fragor game.

Just got this update when I emailed them:

Quote:
Gordon's busy at work finding out where the games actually are - there seems to be discrepancy whether they are still in customs (where they spent a lovely christmas holiday) or at the forwarders warehouse. Will be sorted shortly (hopefully by end of today). Fred have all your details and are ready to send them out as soon as they find / receive them

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

That's good to hear! I'm trying my best to be patient, but I didn't even receive a confirmation that my payment was received on their end. Paypal says it was, so I assume that it must be so. Hopefully we all receive an update soon!
