I wonder who they're shipping to first? Several of us were very early backers.

It appears to be completely random. Some Crowdox late pledge says he got a notice.

I was cleaning out one of my email accounts the other day and I came across my initial pledge email which was dated 2/6/19. So we're coming up on a year now. I'm not complaining. I know I'll get my game it will be well worth it. I'm just not sure I would have backed it if I knew it would be a year.


Guess it's best that I didn't know :P

Why does it matter how long it takes?
A) Still the best deal on a great game ever.
B) It’s not like you don’t a have tons of other games to play.

Just impatience on my part. I've never liked tying up money on games for long periods like this. Inevitably there will be delays and it always frustrates me a little. A quirk of my personality really, but it is why I stay away from most pre-orders and KS.

At the same time, I try not to freak out about it on social media ;)

I'm not particularly fussed. The only thing that gets my anxiety up is forgetfulness. I once returned an item on eBay and every now and again I'd remember I needed to chase my refund...but I'd only remember when I wasn't near a piece of hardware that I could do that on.

I got my refund almost a year later

I've got plenty of games. It's almost here. I suppose it's also the buildup for some...something being so close and yet still so far away.

This.

From LnL's posts, the games were in a warehouse in Ohio, which means when they went to Colorado, they passed with an hour of me.  I would have been more than happy to buy the truck drive a meal if I could have gotten then :)

I'm not too concerned either.  MMP has been publishing ASL modules lately, and that has been keeping me busy.

When this game arrives, it will probably sit on my shelf for a while.  It will be a great value for the money spent.  It's only the second kickstarter I've backed, and I'll always be highly skeptical of any promised delivery timelines.

I’ve spent half my life’s earning on wargames, women, and drink. The rest I wasted.
