Latest Updates from Our Project:

Urgent Shipping Update from Quartermaster Logistics
4 days ago – Mon, Aug 13, 2018 at 08:40:57 PM

I typically wait until certain shipping milestones are reached before providing an update, but I feel you deserve to know now. Like you, I have been exceedingly patient with Panda, OTX and now Quartermaster and I am eager to get everything into your hands! 

Vice President of Quartermaster Logistics, Seth Grier spoke with me this morning regarding the shipping status of all orders. He humbly acknowledged that there has been an unexpected delay in receiving and checking-in the order from the port, but that Quartermaster is now on top of it and he is doing everything within his power to expedite this. 

Here is the breakdown for all shipping lanes: 

US LANE (QM Logistics) 

  • Seth explained that it typically takes 7-10 days to arrive to the warehouse from the port in Florida, so this is on the longer end of that range. 
  • Now that Quartermaster has received everything in their warehouse for “check-in,” there is 1 week minimum of pre-fulfillment that includes: Receiving stock, checking for damages, verifying quantity, verifying all address updates, and "test-packs."
  • Once the order is packed and shipped, tracking will be sent out to the customer 

EU LANE (Spiral Galaxy) 

  • Seth confirmed that the shipment has arrived in the U.K., however they are air-shipping a few items from the U.S. as they are a few items short. 
  •  Once, Spiral Galaxy receives, they will send out an email to their customers for a final address verification, and then ship. 

AUSTRALIA LANE (Aetherworks) 

  • Port arrival confirmed 
  • Logistics Coordinator Chris Obremski has reached out for a status report 

CHINA LANE 

  • Port arrival confirmed 
  • Logistics Coordinator Chris Obremski has reached out for a status report

Gen Con Panel + Board Game Closet + BoardgameShot + Tabletopia Livestream!
21 days ago – Fri, Jul 27, 2018 at 08:48:16 PM

Hey Folks,

Before we ship off to Gen Con (Booth 271), I wanted to share a smorgasbord of Feudum-related happenings:

Gen Con Panel 

This Gen Con, I'm excited to be part of crowdfunding panel hosted by BackerKit called "Engaging Your True Fans Between Projects." The fun begins Saturday, August 4th at 5pm at Lucas Oil Meeting Room 10. I'll be joined by a line up of guests including Isaac Childres (Gloomhaven), Tammie Webb Ryan (Numenera, The Strange), James Hudson (The Grimm Forest, Sorcerer City) and Maya Coleman (Secret Hitler and Trogdor!!). Get your tickets here: https://www.gencon.com/events/142458

Board Game Closet 

Jimmy Hudson from Board Game Closet weighs in wonderfully on Feudum here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwjX3Kr5E8E

BoardgameShot 

Mateusz Zajda from BoardgameShot recently took these spectacular photos of Feudum! https://www.facebook.com/boardgameshot/posts/945057155694165 (Viewable on Instagram on Monday here: https://www.instagram.com/boardgameshot/)

Jon Gets Games + Alter Ego Conquer Card + Feudum App
about 1 month ago – Tue, Jul 10, 2018 at 10:44:01 PM

Hey folks,

Allow me to kill a few birds* with one stone in this update.

1. Some of you who own the Alter Ego Expansion may have a set of misprinted Conquer Action Cards. The correct cards should include the "No x2", "Not Playable as Last Card", and the "Saltpeter + 1" symbols. The cards are STILL playable and many have deemed this misprint insignificant. However, if you must correct this, you have two options:

  • You may create some Print and Play stickers using the correct card available on BoardGameGeek. Simply cutout and overlay the stickers on the six conquer cards.
  • You may email me at mark@oddbirdgames.com with your address + phone to receive a set of replacement cards while supplies last. (Please let me know if you are part of the Queen's Army Campaign, and I'll try to include this in your upcoming shipment).


2. Jon from Jon Gets Games has put together a rather impressive and articulate four player playthough of Feudum.


3. Feudum App development in 2019 is a real possibility. I am in talks with a major app development firm that would make Feudum playable on any iOS, Android, PC, Mac or Linux device across every platform. Stay tuned!

Estimated Time of Port Arrivals
about 1 month ago – Wed, Jul 04, 2018 at 10:53:39 PM

Hey folks, 

I finally got the freight details from Panda. David told me that Panda always tries to get the fastest/earliest bookings they can get, but sometimes this is hit or miss depending on traffic. 

Earlier, Panda and I were certain that ETA to most ports would fall squarely in July, so I'm a little surprised (and frustrated) by these ETA times. All I can say at this point, is thank you for your patience and for your continued support and encouragement.

AUSTRALIA LANE 
V/V: OOCL ITALY v082S
ETD Shenzhen: JUL-2
ETA Sydney: JUL-14

CHINA LANE
PANDA is arranging the shipment to VFI / CN directly
ETA VFI: JUL 17

USA LANE CARRIER: ONE
V/V: OSAKA EXPRESS / 073E
ETD SZX: JUL-3
ETA JACKSONVILLE, FL: AUG-1

UNITED KINGDOM LANE
 V/V: BARZAN 005W
ETD SHENZHEN:JULY-8
ETA SOUTHAMPTON: AUG-2

CANADA LANE
Canadian fulfillment is generally 2-3 weeks behind US. i.e. 3-4 (business days) transit to New York, and then Snakes & Lattes moves it across the Canadian border (5-7 days). And then they queue it and ship it, depending on what other projects they have queued.

Finalize your shipping address!
3 months ago – Sat, May 26, 2018 at 01:04:01 AM

This is it! We’re finally getting READY to ship!

We will lock down shipping addresses soon. That means you have a three days to update your shipping address in your BackerKit survey.

If you need to review your shipping address, 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://feudum-the-queens-army.backerkit.com.

If you haven’t answered your survey yet, you can still fill it out to get your rewards, but your shipment may be delayed.

We are aiming to be READY to ship rewards beginning June 9th to various fulfillment centers around the world, which means some some will receive rewards by the end of June and others into July.  If you need to change your shipping address, please make the changes in your BackerKit survey in the next three days.

Thanks!
