Greetings! This will be a brief update as we're slammed getting ready to leave for Germany (or already in the air for some of us). 

If you will be there please stop by [Hall 5, Booth 5E118] and say hi! 

Expect a normal update after we get back from what should be an epic convention!

Status Report - 2018.10.09 - Freight begins Oct 17! Cursed Pirate VS Artificer Unboxing!
3 months ago – Wed, Oct 10, 2018 at 02:52:59 AM

Late to the party? Season Two Champion Edition can still be preordered here!

TL;DR - Manufacturing is on track. Freight is scheduled to begin Oct 17! Selfie Contest is still rocking! Artificer VS Cursed Pirate Unboxing video below!

Manufacturing

The manufacturer is still on track to finish Oct 15. The games will then be loaded on to vessels ready to depart Oct 17! We are very thankful to our manufacturer for pulling through for us in such a quick time, even while dealing with a natural disaster.

Freight

Freight begins Oct 17! The shipments will arrive at various ports around the world between November 6 and November 18th depending on location. From the ports, it will take ~1 week to get to the fulfillment centers and unloaded. This means fulfillment should start in most / all areas by November 26th. Of course, this is dependent upon us not receiving inspections, or any of the other million things that can cause delays during freight.  

Fulfillment

In previous campaigns, we have tried to structure fulfillment such that everyone receives their games at the same time. We have since discovered that is simply too hard to execute, because of the many variables affecting fulfillment in each region. For example, during the Brass campaign, we held back fulfillment in South East Asia so people in this zone received their game at around the same time as people in Europe, USA and Canada. This actually ended up backfiring because fulfillment was then delayed in Europe and USA, and by the time we asked the fulfillment center in China to start sending orders, they were now backed up with other projects. The end result was many South East Asia backers actually receiving their games last, even though they are the closest to the factory.

As such, it is now our policy to perform fulfillment in each region as soon as the games are received by the fulfillment center in that region. So know that when you receive your order, it is the absolute earliest we could have delivered it within your region.

Because we need more of this in today's world:

PAX Unplugged 2018

PAX U 2017 was amazing for us and we have even bigger plans for 2018! This convention cannot happen without the ability to sell product, which is why we waited until the freight and fulfillment schedule were verified before we finalized our huge and expensive booth. We have confirmed that the majority of backers will receive their product by this time. Unfortunately, due to the typhoon delay, it is possible that a small number of backers will not yet have it in hand. We will not be doing pickup this year at PAX Unplugged, as most / all of USA packages will be delivered to US backers by then anyway. We don't want to spoil what we have in store quite yet, but PAX U 2018 will be our biggest con presence ever!

Status Report - 2018.09.24 - Typhoon Delay • Battle Chest Unboxing • Selfie Contest!
4 months ago – Tue, Sep 25, 2018 at 02:07:47 AM

 Late to the party? Season Two Champion Edition can still be preordered here!

TL;DR - Last week, Typhoon Mangkhut hit our manufacturer. There were no injuries, but some product was damaged (photos below). This will delay production completion by 12 days. Freight now set to begin Oct 17. Selfie Contest - Take a photo of you and Dice Throne at your local Barnes & Noble store for a chance to win some awesome prizes!  Battle Chest Unboxing - We received a final Battle Chest box and unboxed it with Rodney Smith of Watch It Played, check out the video below!

Manufacturing Update

Our manufacturer (located in Shenzhen, China) was hit last week by Typhoon Mangkhut.  There were no injuries, but some product was damaged by flooding.

Some components were damaged and had to be destroyed. These components will need to be remade. We have ordered a full inspection of all components to ensure that nothing else was exposed to moisture.

What is the result? There will be a 12-day delay to complete manufacturing. We are obviously saddened by this delay and apologize to our backers. However, we actually consider ourselves lucky that we will only suffer a 12-day delay, as things could have been a lot worse.  

The result is that freight now begins Oct 17, 2018. We have asked the factory to be extremely realistic with this projection, and they have re-enforced that Oct 17 is an absolutely realistic date for completion.

Below are images of the flooding damage sustained at the factory. 

Our chosen manufacturer for Dice Throne Season Two is one of the best in the world.  They have over 1000 staff, manufacture games for Hasbro, Asmodee, and many other publishers. We have confidence that they will meet their new set deadline.

Again, we are sorry this happened, and thank everyone for your patience and understanding with this delay. Mostly, we are grateful there were no injuries in their factory!

Battle Chest Unboxing!

A few weeks ago, Rodney Smith from Watch It Played joined Gavan Brown at Roxley's Fowl Play event in Calgary to unbox the final Battle Chest preproduction sample. It is beautiful!

PAX West

The show was amazing! We had the privilege of meeting many old fans and creating many new ones. We sold out of all inventory completely and had some exciting business meetings about some potential future collaborations (#staytuned). None of this would have been possible without our amazing convention crew--big shout outs to Daniel Tolczyk, Landon Rawson, Tim DeWolf, Josh Miller, Rob Paine, Ellecia Paine, & C. Eleri Hamilton. We couldn’t have done it without you!!!
