Hi Everyone,

Yes, it may all seem quiet on your end, but our elves have definitely been scrambling in their workshop. So, here's a quick catchup:

1. We have to lock in the final quantity of Deluxe Editions of The Great Chase by midday Thursday. So this is your last chance to order one of those.

2. It looks as if we haven't reached our Challenge Coin goal (great sadness). I'll be taking that away and you won't be charged for them.

3. The prototype has been delayed a few days as we fuss over details (like making sure the cards are rotated correctly front to back), but I hope to have images for you early next week. 

4. We'll know more about the final delivery timing once we've reviewed the prototype. There is one wild card that is completely out of our control: Customs. US Customs, we're told can take from 2-45 days to process a shipment like ours...and there is no way to predict what it will be. We've done everything we can to expedite that in how we've designed and labeled the product (I know someone who lost a month because they didn't put the country of manufacture on the box, we did, and someone else who lost weeks because there wasn't a product barcode, we have one.) We're still gunning for a late November/early December ship date but we'll keep you posted.


That's all for now! Except tell your favorite game retailer that pre-ordering the 6 or 12 game pack now is a great deal!

More soon,

Matt

CONTRACT

I just signed the contract for the actual production of the game. We've worked out all of the details and plan to deliver the finished art within the next 24 hours. We've already pre-tested several of the files with the manufacturer, so I expect that we'll get the proofs run pretty quickly after that.

I'll definitely post photos when those come through.

SURVEY

If you haven't yet completed your survey, please do so soon.  It should be in your inbox (or maybe your spam) from August 4th. Let me know if you can't find it (at ml@mlbuchman.com) and I'll resend it. Many great add-ons if you want, including extra copies.

NOT TOO LATE

It's still not too late to get friends aboard. Just send them here:

A Quick Check-in
2 months ago – Thu, Aug 12, 2021 at 08:31:46 AM

First, a Status Update:

  • The Surveys were sent and over 75% of you have answered. If you haven't, please do so soon!
  • The final design tweaks are being finished this week. (The cardboard box is 1/4" deeper, which takes a surprising amount of work to change.)
  • We've had a small stumble on the quote process involving the tin box for the Deluxe Edition (truly small and we already had a Plan B in place, so all it did was cause a 1-week delay in the process while it was requoted). We hope to go to contract and launch manufacturing in the next week.

Second, it's not too late:

For the next two weeks we're accepting late pledges. This means that you can still get the game, be a novel character, or buy the super-cool set of 6 Team Miranda diecast coins (if we get enough folks interested). Just follow this link: https://mlbuchman.com/tgc
