Canadian Backer Update
5 months ago – Sat, Oct 07, 2023 at 09:39:00 PM

Hello Backers!

We have an update for our patient backers in Canada. We had to switch fulfillment partners, and it took a while to redirect the inventory, but all of the games arrived safely with the partner, Pick & Pack Logistics, yesterday. 

They have all the needed info to get these shipped, and they will be starting to ship to backers in the next few weeks. Thank you all for your patience!

For everyone else who needs help with a missing, incorrect, or damaged shipment -- we are still working on getting these done in 1 batch! It has been hard to get the attention of the fulfillment company post-fulfillment but we are working hard to get everyone whole. 

Thanks again for the support, hope you enjoy the games!

July Update
8 months ago – Thu, Jul 06, 2023 at 08:14:03 PM

Hello Backers!

All of the copies have reached our fulfillment partners. The final shipment will depend a bit on the schedule of the partners but I would expect them to come this month. The US fulfillment will be coming first, followed by UK/EU/ROW. There will be a slight delay for our Canadian backers as those copies have one more short journey to our CA fulfillment partner. Thank you all for your support and patience, and we can't wait to see some photos once they arrive! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Thanks again,

Michael + Jeff

June Update / Quick Freight shipping update
8 months ago – Sun, Jun 25, 2023 at 10:39:08 PM

Hello Backers!

I wanted to wait until I had a more definitive update, but I see a lot of people were wanting a quick update on the shipping. The games and playmats were shipped from the factory in China on May 24th to our US/NA fulfillment partner and our EU/RoW fulfillment partner destination.  Our U.S. shipment is dealing with delays in the receiving port, which is causing many shipped items to have delays including several other Kickstarter shipments. The shipping company did not give us a definitive date but we are following up with them as often as we can. I have a call planned for another update on the EU/RoW shipment tomorrow as well.  When I have final confirmation that the shipment has arrived with our fulfillment partners, I will send out another update along with details about how the final shipping notice will be sent out. Thanks again for you patience everyone, and I hope to have these finally on their way soon!

May Update & Last call for address changes!
10 months ago – Sun, May 14, 2023 at 03:39:40 PM

Hello Backers! (And Happy Mother's Day!)

Manufacturing has finished for all products! The shipping plans for world wide fulfilment are in motion now and as a result, this will be the last change to give any shipping address updates. You can reach out here or update on BackerKit using your original link. The next step is to wait for the freight shipping to our distribution partners and hope there are no delays in imports. From there, we will be given a shipment date and we will have another update to lock in the final shipment days for each region. Thank you all for the support, it won't be long now. Looking forward to seeing pictures of people playing!

March Update + Expansion Sneak Peak!
11 months ago – Sat, Mar 25, 2023 at 08:27:06 PM

We hope you are doing well! We have some great images to share this time of proofs of the expansion, Inquisition! We are in the process of giving the final approval and details and these will go into production soon! There has been no change from the estimates from the last time, no news is good news on that front! Without further ado, here are some pictures of this gorgeous game. (All the credit goes to Jeff!!)

The box, still in the shrinkwrap

Comparison of the sizes of the boxes

First look when you open, packed very neatly.

The new decks, science tracks, and the religion card sleeves! The card sleeves look and feel great! It gives the exact feeling I was hoping for when playing -- opening up a booster pack of cards and getting to put them into play right away.

The next layer contains the religion board. Wonderful quality and nice finish on the curve.

The follower/heretic mini-card deck.

The stretch goal religion card holders, these look great and are a wonderful space saver!

Token sheet 1 of 2. These are a great thickness.

Token sheet 2 of 2, finally tokens for resource tracking!

Some close ups of the cards and the religion pack holder.

These new cards look great!!!

Dual resource stretch goals (my personal favorite land card art of Jeff's)

Thanks for taking the time to check out the sneak peek everyone. We will keep you updated on the progress of the manufacturing and fulfillment in the coming months. We will also share some more pictures of the expansion on the playmats for a full game, it's a beautiful spread. As always thanks for the support!
