Hi guys

The big box is now live... $7 though! Let me know if you want one and I will change the pledge

Paying for boxes - kickstarter gone (even more) mad!

There's no way I'm going to get all the new cards and bits to fit into the old box even without it's insert - I've checked. :cry:
So, it's a BigBox for me as well, please.

For comparison purposes, Lagoon Games/Lagoon Group produced some party games a while back, including this one:

Another was Hidden Agenda (not the one on BGG). They came in cubic boxes, about 10cm/side, which is almost the height of the Fleet BB.
Not your average box height.

EDIT-Also, the original Alhambra box appears to be about the same size as the BigBox, at least the same height.

Dan, I spoke to Rachel about the BB a few days ago and she was interested; if you haven't already heard from her I think you can order a box for her as well. If she changes her mind I'll get it from her and use it as a planter box or something. ;)

Hey everybody,
In case you haven't seen, during the last 24 hours the campaign achieved (sorry, unanchored) the final stretch goal, the salmon bits. Woohoo, that's a lot of extras coming our way! :D
If you're interested you can follow the final countdown here: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/147883 ... ansion-to/

Hi guys - just as an FYI - you might see in the Googledocs some adjusted pricing as 4 additional boxes have been added. This drove the per box price up by $1 but the postage down by $1.10. So net saving of 10c! Just to make sure you know why things look a bit different if you check!

Seems this game could be another couple of months to get here. Some sort of shipping issue from the US to the EU, from where it should come here. Or it might be sooner (or longer)

All too hard for me to track.

It's alright, all the kickstarters that got badly delayed a few months before Fleet are all finally arriving... as long as you prime the pipeline with a game every few months, then they all start arriving every few months. Not in the order you'd expect though...

Email from Eagle today

"Hi Daniel,

Unfortunately Matt overlooked our Australian backers when he sent out that update. We're still consolidating the Australian shipment, but my best estimate is that we will send it from China in 2 weeks, and it will be at your door in 5 weeks. We will be putting out another update with full information.

Sorry for the delay and for the false hopes!"


Lord only knows why Australian stock is so hard to stick in a box and it has taken 6-8 weeks longer to box than US games!

Hey, Dan, I'm passing through Quangzhou tomorrow, with a two-hour layover. Maybe I can collect them on the way. :D
Would save about 3 wks, if only I could. And it will still have taken less time than the Lost Valley KS.
