Journey - Wrath of Demons
« am: April 30, 2015, 15:17:43 Nachmittag »
Vor gut 1 3/4 Jahren habe ich es gekickstartert, auf der Spiel '14 erstmals live gesehen und mit André Demo gespielt (bzw. nen Walkthrough). Jetzt steht es tatsächlich kurz vor der Auslieferung, und ich denke, das sollte man sich als Brettspiel und Minaturenspielfreund genauer ansehen (es ist die Grafik Whore unter den Board-Games derzeit - und das Spiel ist auch gut ;) ):

Es ist soweit....
Journey wird in Bälde ausgeliefert werden, das Spiel und einige zus. Sachen (Gelände zB) sind fertig(!), es gibt ein fertiges Exemplar im Büro von Marrow, und Lieferung wird die nächsten Tage starten.

Hello Backers!

We have good news to share, but you must read the new paragraph carefully. Printing, packaging, shipping, etc, is on track, with printing being complete. We have a true production sample. So now is the time we need your correct address.

We have good news to share, but you must read the new paragraph carefully. Printing, packaging, shipping, etc, is on track, with printing being complete. We have a true production sample. So now is the time we need your correct address.

This is the important part: We must have your correct address before Sunday May 3rd (Hong Kong time). You have been able to change your addresses in the pledge manager for some time now and we hope most (all!!!) of you have given us a correct address. But we know this project has taken a long time and you may have moved and forgotten, etc, so this is your last change reminder. Send an e-mail to the address below with the subject set to “Shipping Address”. Include your name, Kickstarter username, the full address you want us to ship the core game to and a daytime contact phone number.

If you are moving or on vacation at the estimated delivery time, we suggest you use a friend’s or relative’s fixed address.

This is the fun part: We finally have a production copy of Journey in the office!!! You cannot imagine how nervous we were to open the box. If we saw a problem, it would have been too late to fix. But it was beautiful, much better than we expected.

We have seen many samples, but this box had two important differences from anything we saw before. First, this is the first time we have seen many of the finished items. For example the cards: we saw samples printed with the correct ink and we saw white cards embossed and coated. This was the first time we have seen our finished cards. Second and more importantly, this is the first time we have received all the items together, packaged correctly. In the past, we were shipped an empty box or a manual in an envelope, or bags of minis, etc. To unpack the box and see all the parts in their glory was eye opening. Here are some details and photos.

We have to start with some minis, even though you’ve seen them before. These come protected in a molded plastic tray, housed inside a Kraft paper box. They are extremely well protected. With luck, we expect to have the minimum amount of shipping damage.

We were really pleased with the printed material. As we told you before, we were at the last hurdle with our first printing company and the arrangement fell through over some final issues. We are sorry for the delay, but those last two problems were a stroke of luck: switching companies was the best thing we could have done. The new printed material is much brighter and more vibrant and the details are much sharper, especially in the manual. It’s like switching from DVDs to Blu-Rays; we were perfectly happy with DVDs and did not know things could be better.

The texture and finish on the cards is perfect.

The heavy card stock is impressive. The compression step at the end takes the thick cardstock and makes it thinner and harder, but just as heavy, of course. It is really solid. When you get your box, we want you to hold up a map tile and tap it with your knuckle. It makes a great ringing noise and feels really hard. We have never handled card like this before. And the rule book was compressed too, it feels slimmer and the fold is well creased.

The tokens got the same treatment, so they are hard, vibrant and have a linen texture embossed on them. But the thing that impresses us the most is how they press out of the sheet. They are firmly in place and won’t slip during shipping, but pop out cleanly, with no damage.

We were up late making the obligatory “Unboxing Video” and we’ll edit and post it as soon as we can. It shows a few more details.

Hey! Do we have your correct shipping address? If not, stop looking at the eye candy and send us an e-mail or message in Kickstarter.
