Shipping update

posted Oct 11, 2017 00:11:23 by SteveHanson
From Chris Birch


We're emailing all outstanding customers with an update - the factory has had some delays due to the frankfurt book fair (which is the equivalent of GenCon for gaming but on a gigantic worldwide scale) so production times have been shifting more than planned (some items went in to production later as previously explained due to approvals and that's caused us to get stuck in some of the chaos around the book fair). Anyway here's what we're emailing out so it's clear. This could still change - shipments are planned but there can still be delays (trucks are at a premium due to the fair) out of our control but we're emailing customers if anything changes to let them know.


BORG CUBES
Our factory has just notified us that they will be shipping the first batch of 90 Borg cubes to us this week. This means they’ll be ready to ship the week beginning Monday 16th October. After those first 90, the factory will send us the following 350 or so preorders in waves so that we can fulfil them as they come in over two weeks from Monday 16th. Orders will be fulfilled in order of purchase, so the first 90 orders will be sent out first, then the remaining cubes after that. Customers in the United States should be aware that delivery of these items can take 10 days. Tracking details are provided at the point of dispatching them in the UK, but the actual information will not be live until the packages are ready to go out of the country, around 48 hours later. These are limited, expensive items, and we’ve taken every effort to make sure they arrive in a timely manner and in perfect condition.

BORG DRONES
Borg drone bundles have been completed by our factory and are being shipped to our warehouse, meaning we can fulfil orders. These are due to be shipped from our warehouse at the beginning of next week, from Monday 16th October. Customers in the United States should be aware that delivery of these orders can take around 10 days. Tracking details are provided at the point of dispatching them in the UK, but the actual information will not be live until the packages are ready to go out of the country, around 48 hours later. These are limited, expensive items, and we’ve taken every effort to make sure they arrive in a timely manner and in perfect condition.

STARTER BUNDLES AND TILE SETS
Gamemaster Screens have been printed by our factory and are being shipped to our warehouse. They are due in, by the end of this week and so we can begin fulfilment of these items from Monday 16th October. Customers in the United States should be aware that delivery of these items can take 10 days. Tracking details are provided at the point of dispatching them in the UK, but the actual information will not be live until the packages are ready to go out of the country, around 48 hours later.

THESE ARE THE VOYAGES
These Are The Voyages: Mission Compendium Volume 1 are being finished off by our factory in about a week and will be shipped to our warehouse the week of the 16th October, which means with shipment from Europe, stock will be checked in and prepared for dispatch from Monday 23rd October. Customers in the United States should be aware that delivery of these items can take 10 days. Tracking details are provided at the point of dispatching them in the UK, but the actual information will not be live until the packages are ready to go out of the country, around 48 hours later. Any order that also contains These Are The Voyages, alongside Borg cubes, drones, and bundles, will be processed and dispatched from 23rd October as noted above.

Good to know. So, the people who ordered the Borg cubes will be the last to get them. Hopefully all the errors I am seeing in the pdfs will not be present in the final product.

Good to finally know what's going on. Is the number of the preorder going to be true to what we recieve? I was #52 on the counter when I bought mine.

@David Trott first edition RPG books are always like that.

Looks like I'm waiting for Cube wave 2 :( Thanks for the update. Any news is better than none, even if it's not the news we hoped for.

Oh, thank the Stars, I getting angry looks from my people, because I ordered a game masters screen and not only Corebook and Dice like the Rest of us.

I for one can't wait for my stuff to come. I hope for no more delays.

Unfortunate that the all-in Cubes will be coming last compared to people who ordered the cheaper drones... (like me).
Nice. So I can expect it in two weeks or so. Okay... probably three given the slow rate these will likely leave the UK and Canada Post...

Thinking on this.
Why are the Borg Cubes delayed? Especially when the Drones have not. The books have been printed. The dice and tokens are out. Can't be the Cubes themselves or the drones would also be delayed.
The minis? Assembling everything?

I do wonder if the delay is getting new printings of the core books out for the premium Cubes...

I believe the Cubes included the GM Screen, which was one of the last individual items to be approved/printed, though I could be misremembering.

But the drones also have the same screen. Which is different from the "regular" screen.

I *really* hope the Borg bundles have been delayed so they could make sure the included reference cards don't all misspell the word "Summary" like the PDFs do. :)

And I'll be in the last wave since I preordered from the FLGS.

I'm still waiting on my GM screen. Bought it August 7th. Don't see mention of the status of it in the OP.

It's mentioned under Starter Bundles & Tile Sets that the GM Screens shall start shipping from Monday 16th.
