Just wanted to give you a little heads up that we plan to charge cards for add-on items you purchased or any additional funds you may owe through BackerKit on 07/12/2018. Make sure that you have the correct card information on file. If any issues arise with your payment you’ll receive an email letting you know to correct your payment information.
If you need to review payment information, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://nwmhouserivalry.backerkit.com.
We're almost there!

Hello, Magical Backers!
At long last, after Chinese New Year factory shutdowns, problems with reproducing the DuBois blue vs. the Laveau purple, and fun with molds for die, the games are boxed, cartoned, palletted, and in a cargo hold. HUZZAH!!
They are on their way to our awesome fulfilment and distribution partners, Gamesquest! Gamesquest is in the UK and will handle all the VAT and customs clearance, and then ship out individual orders from there.
I will update with a more approximate delivery time to you once they arrive in port in the UK and we hear from Gamesquest. Until then, we don't know for sure how long they will take -- it could be from 3 weeks to 8 weeks depending on the weather and number of stops the ship makes between Shanghai and UK.
That means we likely are looking at a late August/early September date for the game to be in your hands, personally. I wish it were sooner, but when we saw the production problem with the colors, we had to ask them to change it. It is important that we produce the high-quality game that you're expecting and that we're proud to publish. I know we had initially said May for fulfilment, but as you've been hearing from our frequent updates, that has been delayed some due to the reasons above. For the next game we fund we will "pad" the schedule a bit more for the unpredictability that results from producing items in China. I hope you'll agree though, that a 3-month delay is preferable to a game that has incorrect printing and colors. This is why we get production proofs!
It really is a BEAUTIFUL game. Dagmara's art on the box looks amazing, and the cards and components are sharp! I know you're going to proud to add this to your collection and to play it often!
We'll let you know more when we have more info. For now, keep your fingers crossed that we are not on the "slow boat to China" but rather on an "express."
