Subject: [wifplaytest] Final update on ks
The Last supper
Edit (25 minutes)
Gidday Collector’s edition members,
Today is another red-letter day passing the $150,000 mark, thank you all for your fabulous support. To mark this and with two days to go now is a good time for the final update before the end of this incredible ks campaign.
First, the bad news. Although the join the immortals and kickstarter campaign have been a great experience and have both improved the quality of game we are about to publish, in the enhancements in counters, maps and rules, it has taken around 7 weeks in total off the time I need to spend to finish the game and we will not now have complete games at Essen.
At best we will have 200 copies of the maps, counters and charts, which will allow you to play straight away. But we will have to ship the rest after the con (expected to be sent out mid to late November 2-4 weeks after Essen). If these components are ready in time, members who pick them up will get a partial refund of the freight.
All components we do get to Essen will be available to advance order customers (both here on ks and via our website) in purchase date order. If we do get 200 copies there that should be enough for all advance order customers depending on how many want to pick their games up there.
But to ensure your game is saved for you, when I send out the survey next week to all ks advance order customers, I will include a question asking whether you intend to pick up at Essen. If you do not say you will, your game (or part thereof) won’t be reserved. All advance order components must be picked up by Sunday 29th October by 1pm. From that time on we will open them for general advance order sale and will ship your game complete after the show when it is finished.
I apologise for this. Much of the game is being done by others but certain jobs only I can do and even working 16-18 hours a day 7 days a week, there is only so much I can do each day. Please also note for there to be any chance of even getting the counters and the maps to Essen I need to spend every available moment from now on getting the game out.
We will however have all the other components of the suerdeluxe available for Essen pickup by our First class members.
