I was interested in purchasing a few empty boxes, particularly ones for Ogre and Illuminati. If there is any overprinting, would they be purchase-able?

Yep. Once we've processed everything, then we'll do final counts and some items will find their way to Warehouse 23.

Hi,

I have a question on who's doing the shipping, i.e. if there is an issue should I contact SJG or backerkit?

On a related issue, when are international shippings going to happen?
(Backerkit showed my likely ship date as 2019/12, yet I've still yet to receive any notification of shipment).

BR,
Flaser

Even 3 weeks later I'm confident my situation is nothing but dumb luck of the draw. I locked in late and it won't be an easy order to pick, so hi ho hi ho to the back of the line I go. That's not SJG's fault, that's not the fulfillment partner's fault, it's the natural consequence of hemming and hawing until the last second.

It'll get here soon enough. :)

What is the best adhesive for adding a label spine to the plastic boxes?
Just adhesive label paper?
Thanks.

I received my shipment a few days ago, so it looks like they are going out again.

Kudos to the design and production teams on this, the games look great!

So, why is it so hard to find out anything about this?

Where are these games?

Why aren't they being sold here?

Is it all strictly kickstarter?

It is only a month or so since they were made and shipped out. Is this just some limited one and done print off?

Overall, I'm starting to develop a love hate relationship with the drive-by producing style of SJG. It's like some sort of insider cult, not a public sales merchant. "Sorry, you aren't following us ever day, so we produced a bunch of games you might want but only in limited quantities and you can't have any."

Welcome to modern marketing, wherein successful companies try to mitigate the effects of over-producing by making "just enough" to fill demand.

The latest Pocket Box Games campaign from Kickstarter is still being shipped out, and they've said any overage will be sold via W23 when they have completed fulfillment.

As for having to follow them, how hard is it to read an email or two a day as to what's going on with any company you might be interested in?
