Happy Monday! Just a quick update to start off your week. We hope everyone is staying healthy and happy and...patient!
AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND: Aetherworks has sent everything out, and it should already be there or will be soon. For those of you that went all-in, you either received or will receive the order in two shipments. So if you didn't get everything you expected yet, it should soon follow.
EUROPE & AFRICA: Well, after my last update where I was telling you the exciting news that your game would be there soon, we got word GamesQuest was locked down. The good news is they got all the orders out that consisted of just the Deluxe game with no additional items, so those should be received soon. The bad news is that's all they got out before the service was suspended. If you got the all-in pledge or even just the base game, you are unfortunately having to wait. I'm incredibly sorry about this. Nothing we could do at this point, but still a very painful message to deliver. Fingers crossed it's a shorter wait than not.
NORTH & SOUTH AMERICA: The first of three containers has been checked and inventoried and I had hoped sent by now. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the exact date of fulfillment to start. Everything is moving a little more slowly than normal due to health concerns, but they know I'm anxious and I hope it is moving next week. As demanding as I want to be so we can get the game in your hands, I am also choosing a less obnoxious and more understanding route. The good news is after calculating exactly how far that first container will take us once it has started moving, we will be able to complete 95% of Canada and 32% of the US. We will be able to get all but 2 of the South and Central America and ROW shipments out as well. Again, I truly hope it's sooner than later. The other two containers should set sail this week and should arrive in 35 to 45 days. I will provide more details when I have them.
ASIA: The truck should start moving to VFI-Asis by early next week. I am not communicating directly with them, but I anticipate the fulfillment process should begin within a week or so thereafter. As soon as I get confirmation from my logistics team, I will let you know what to expect.
ANTARCTICA: Paul and Rob, you'll get yours eventually. Maybe.
For those of you interested in the amazing book cover upgrade, the character sheet or the much happier book insert, here ya go!

P.S. We forgot to mention one concern about the Dragon Shield sleeves aren't fitting, but they really do. That's what we use. :)

It's been a busy few weeks since our last update, but we are finally starting to see some good results in moving towards getting D6 in your hands! Especially in this troubling time that everyone is dealing with, we're really excited to finally bring some joy to your table. But we still need to ask for more patience for the most part.
AUSTRALIA&NEW ZEALAND: Aetherworks has started and we are seeing evidence of D6 arriving with some backers. This will continue over the next week so, therefore I'm hopeful it finds you soon. The Deluxe game is so big they opted to ship it in separate boxes from the add-ons. If you receive one box and feel you are missing items, it's likely to come the next day or so. Please bear with us.
EUROPE: GamesQuest has started fulfilling as of today. It took a little while to finalize the customs process, organize the shipments and for me to get it all paid for based on their estimates, but it's now starting. For the record, any delay getting started is on me. The game has proven to be extremely expensive to ship, and I simply needed to scrutinize it prior to sending payment in hopes to reduce it as much as possible. That said, I failed to save money and lost a little time, but we are now moving. The problem now is they are short staffed due to certain employees being quarantined. This is going to mean it could take up to two weeks to get the entire order out the door. They apologized for the longer than normal anticipated turnaround, but I feel this is reasonable considering the circumstances. I hope you agree.
NORTH & SOUTH AMERICA: The first container arrived a few weeks ago. Quartermaster Logistics has been putting the final shipping quotes together based on actual pick and pack fees, packaging, and customs fun that I sent them as late as possible for accuracy. That has now been completed and approved. Based on their current schedule, they anticipate starting the first week of April with the current inventory in hand.
Our manufacturer in China has reported some great news regarding the rest of the games. They are now back to 100% capacity and have now finished everything. We are now getting the containers ready to ship and hope to reach the US in 35 to 40 days. This will represent the bulk of the US shipments. Thank you for continuing to be patient.
ASIA: Now that the final manufacturing push has been completed, we will be sending a truck to VFI Asia for fulfillment. I don't have a definitive schedule, but hope to have the games on their way to your door in the coming weeks.
THANK YOU! As some of you begin to enjoy the game, while others wait a little longer, we want to say thank you for all your support and to send the very best wishes to each of you. In the meantime, we have just over a week left on our current campaign for Who Goes there 2nd Edition. If you have interest in a cooperative (until it's not) game of growing paranoia, please check it out. www.whogoesthere2.com
Have a great week!

GETTING READY TO LOCK AND LOAD
about 1 month ago
– Thu, Feb 27, 2020 at 02:08:20 AM
Where we are...
Hey everyone! After all these months, we are getting really close to fulfilling the beast of a game known as D6. At least for some of you. The ships appear to have arrived in Australia, Europe and the United States, but we are still going to be dealing with customs and initial fulfillment prep in the next week or so. As a reminder, we only got 1 of the 3 containers on board for the US portion, so we are still waiting on the rest. I spoke to the manufacturer to get an update, and they have asked for an additional week before they will give me a definitive update on the rest of the games. Due to the health concerns, they are working split shifts which is slowing everything down, but we are remaining 100% supportive of their health first attitude while keeping our eye on quality. Additionally, there is a back log of shipments that are slowly starting to move out which has caused delays from CNY anyway. Everything in the Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South America and Central America will be fulfilled with the initial shipments, and we will get as much of the US and Canada as we can. Asia and the rest of the US will be updated as soon as I hear from the manufacturer next week.
Where you are...
In the meantime, it's time to lock down addresses in anticipation of things moving quickly from here. Shortly after I send this update, I will be sending notice to each of you for any final address changes. If you haven't moved recently or have already changed your address, nothing for you to do. If you need to change, however, please be on the lookout for the e-mail.
Coming even sooner...
Outside the D6 world, you may have heard about one of our other games, Who Goes There?, based on the novella that inspired John Carpenter's THE THING. We are excited to launch our next Kickstarter for the Who Goes There? Second Edition on Monday, March 2nd. We'll also be introducing two expansions with 4 new characters along with some fun game play updates. For those of you that already own Who Goes There?, we have upgrade packs available so you won't have to buy the whole game again. We hope you'll check it out. Go to www.whogoesthere2.com and select NOTIFY ME AT LAUNCH if interested.
Have a great rest of the week!

YESTERDAY WAS GROUNDKEY DAY!
2 months ago
– Tue, Feb 04, 2020 at 01:08:25 AM
Well, it took a lot longer than I had hoped to get some information, but this is what we finally know...
KEY DIDN'T (COULDN'T) SEE HIS SHADOW!
So...from the info available, this appears to have loaded and departed as planned.
US BOUND: We got our one container on the boat (waiting until after Lunar New Year to fix the issues with some of the games for the remaining 2 containers). Vessel: CMA CGM BOUGAINVILLE with an estimated port arrival of February 26th. As a reminder, we will be fulfilling games outside the US with this initial shipment first due to longer shipping times.
EUROPE BOUND: Again, our container made the boat! Vessel: CMA CGM Bougainville with an estimated port arrival of February 24th.
AUSTRALIA BOUND: This one made it, too! Vessel: COSCO THAILAND V.070S with an estimated port arrival of February 7th.
ASIA BOUND: This is traveling by land and will depart after the factory is back up and running, the printing issues are resolved, and the final games are completed. Will update as soon as I have the information.
I will be sending out final requests for any address changes soon. Please keep in mind that it still takes time once the cargo ports to go though customs and for the fulfillment houses to organize and start the fulfillment process. Please continue to be patient with us as we start moving inventory. I will update you once we have more information on actual shipping dates.

A QUALITY UPDATE?
3 months ago
– Tue, Jan 21, 2020 at 02:12:39 AM
In other words...
Even though the manufacturer gave us the thumbs up for all deliverable items being ready in time, the quality control they put in place red flagged a significant batch due to some printing not being up to our standards. The error was not caught in time to finish everything without feeling rushed before the workers left for Chinese New Year, so they are set to finish as soon as they return. In the meantime, we have a complete container ready for Europe, Australia, and one of the three containers for the United States. The portion designated for Asia is being held with the remaining inventory for the US.
Our schedule now (hopefully) looks like this:
AUSTRALIA: Container to Australia should depart today, but we have not received confirmation. We truly hope you are all managing with everything that is going on with the fires. Sending our very best wishes.
UNITED STATES: 1 of the 3 containers for the US is scheduled for the 23rd. Still keeping our fingers crossed it won't get bumped. If it makes it, we expect to start fulfilling early March. Due to the limited first batch of inventory (if it makes it), we will prioritize packages that tend to take the longest for delivery such as South America. The other two containers will depart a week or so after workers return from the CNY holiday.
EUROPE: The container for Europe is scheduled to depart on the 26th, but we are being warned it could get rolled to a shipment the following week.
ASIA: These games will be trucked to VFI after Chinese New Year is over and the misprints are corrected.
Thank you for your continued patience! Have a great week!
