Dear Friends, Fans, and Supporters,
For all of you in the United States, and you American ex-pats out there, I would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Whether you will be feasting on a big turkey dinner, a tur-duck-en, or a hearty vegan meal, I hope you will be doing so in the company of loved ones with much to be thankful for.
We have an update on the production status and delivery estimate for Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! A physical proof (basically, a sample copy) of GDFR products arrived from our printing company last week. This includes sample cards, uncut card sheets, the rulebook, and the puzzle. And they’re looking good! Game Salute has already reviewed and double-checked the proof for quality and accuracy, and they have sent it along to my office in Las Vegas for triple-checking and final approval. I should be getting the package in the mail sometime this week.
Our printer also forwarded a digital proof, which shows how the cards are laid out for printing. Here are all the goblins, ready to be printed, cut-up, sorted, and shrink-wrapped (a typical goblin day, really…) The fairies are on the other side of the card sheet, naturally.
The sample copy of the collector’s tin is still in progress, because our printing company is making a custom mold for it. We’re hoping to receive this sample within the next few weeks so we can review and approve it. So, GDFR production is moving forward, slowly but surely. Once everything gets final approval, production will begin. The latest estimate we have from our printing company is 45-50 days for production. Adding the time it will take to ship those copies overseas and fulfill orders, we are estimating the delivery of all games and rewards for everyone who has pre-ordered the game through Kickstarter or the Game Salute store to happen by March, 2013.
I am really looking forward to the day when this game gets played by gamers and families around the world. It’s so close, I can almost smell it. And it smells like roast turkey with all the trimmings. Wait, that’s… Okay, gotta go! Once again, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
