A couple quick notes from the manufacturing side of things this week!
If you live in the U.S. and you pre-ordered a copy of Two Rooms and a Boom (2nd Edition), then there's about a 90% chance that your order has shipped (as I'm looking at the Seller Central back-end that Amazon provides, there's only about a dozen or so left that are in the "planning" stages, meaning that Amazon is slapping labels and boxes on the games before shipping them out). You should receive an e-mail from Amazon when your game ships. Some of you have even gotten yours already! Wee!
International Orders, Ideaspatcher tells me their games usually ship out on Wednesday, so tomorrow I'll be contacting them to see where we're at.
When Will Games Be Available Again?
That's a tough question. Because of quality control delays, we had Panda air-ship pre-orders to our warehouses so that you guys wouldn't be stuck holding the bag on a super late game. However, the bulk of our print-run is still being assembled in China. That means that if everything goes well, it should hit the boat in about a week or so, meaning that games will get here sometime in late October or possibly early November just in time for the holiday season.
However, we've decided to open up a second round of pre-orders for those of you who missed out on the first batch. These pre-orders will ship when the bulk of the games arrive at our warehouses (Amazon and Ideaspatcher), before the games go live on Amazon for sale. Look forward to that happening sometime next week!
As always, if you have any problems, questions, or concerns, feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
