Typhoons but it's OK

Hi everyone,

The files have been proofed and submitted. 

The manufacturing plant was hit with a typhoon in early September and has caused a bit of a delay while they clean up the plant and get up and running. The current schedule is to manufacture games at the end of the month.  

And then... we will have to deal with shipping. Word is that the booking of container ships is backlogged for a variety of reasons. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.



Thank you everyone... next steps.

The campaign will end in a few minutes. I am out on the road visiting game stores and will be working on the follow-up survey through Backerkit during the next few days. At some point, you will receive an email from them about shipping and any add-on you wish to purchase.

Please note 

  • EU any add-on will significantly increase the shipping cost. From what I am being told, it will still be EU-friendly though.
  • Canada - any add-on will bring the customs cost over $20 and you will incur some Canadian taxes.
  • Local Pickup - contact us directly for any add-on because Backerkit will add shipping as soon as you order an add-on.

For those of you just keeping to your pledge level, shipping will be exactly as quoted :)

Thank you again for your support (and supporting your FNGS)

Thank you everyone for your support.

Here is what you need to know.

1.  We are including heat-transferred images onto wood tokens for the game.  Very pretty. Very sold.

The next step is the first stretch goal(at $5000), a nice linen finished box to make the game look all book-like.

I expect that we will be getting a little boost when a couple of interviews get published. They haven't yet, but they should be coming out later this week.

I've had a chance to get to some game stores and play Usurp with some folks. Very positive reviews and a few more backers jumped on after. 



67% with 21 days to go. Looking good.

We selected a member off of our email list to win a free copy of Usurp the King when it is available. 

And the winner is.... drumroll...

James Orr.

We used a random number generator and selected the name off our email list based on the number generated. 457 in case you're curious.

Were are moving closer to the goal every day.  

Thank you again for all of your support.
