905% of the art is done, and enough is complete to put the project up on Kickstarter...which didn't exist when pre-production actually started.

The project should 'go live' next week, finish in early January, and then be available by March at the latest for shipment.

For those who preordered--I have the info and if there are KS "benefits" for the level you paid, you'll get those, too. If you want to upgrade, contact me and that will be taken care of as well.

I absolutely, positively do not want to hose over anyone who patiently provided pre-order money to me. (And likewise, if you want a refund because of the delay--I understand completely)

I will post the link when it goes live--my goal is to raise enough to do the production with the full bells+whistles!

All - This has taken a long time to get the artwork done, but the game looks great and I think it is one that many of you will enjoy. Hopefully you will give it a look when the KickStarter project goes live next week.

Thanks - Richard

The Kickstarter campaign hasn't started yet and it's already available for preorder on Coolstuffinc?

Actually, its been available at Cool Stuff via preorder since early this year (2012) - at least that's when I first noticed it. I preordered then (March), then after waiting a while canceled as I decided I wanted to get the other games I had ordered at the time. Then in August I preordered again - along with several other games as before. I really would like to see this game sooner rather than later as once again I'd really like to get ALL of the games. I appreciate that we will be getting any Kickstarter bonuses if we keep our preorder, but I hope this won't make more delays with new components, cards, etc. I have confidence, however, that this will be a great game so I will hang in there.

I'd like to thank Jim Dietz for getting back to me via Geekmail on my request for an update.

There shouldn't be any added delays because of Kickstarter bonuses.
Then again, with this project, I've said that for a little while, right? :gulp

The video has been uploaded and I expect to submit it for KS approval on Monday.

And now in the world of high comedy...

There's a delay on the Kickstarter due to an Amazon Payments snag--related to a software change due to new IRS tracking requirements. You know you're in trouble when their I.T. staff say, "Whoa--we have no idea. We'll call you back."

It'll be fixed--just may be another 24 hrs before that gets rolling...

Me too!

Amazon is taken care of--and frankly, their IT/customer service was -outstanding-.

Now a glitch with Kickstarter and my address. I say I'm in one town--and their system insists I am in a different one. Go figure. That WAS fixed today, so KS is now in the process of approving the project!
