Time for another Dead of Winter production update!

After the last problem with the plastics, production got back underway until... there was another problem of some sort. But there were 3000 games worth produced with good plastics, so Plaid Hat Games is doing everything possible to get the products to our customers, since those games are done and are in tip-top shape. Those 3000 games are currently being assembled and will be on a boat to their destinations ASAP. That includes everyone who has pre-ordered at PlaidHatGames.com, European, Canadian, American, or otherwise. Hooray!

Since those games are now headed to their shipping locations in England, etc., the European shipping discounts have now ended, since only enough games to fulfill those orders have been shipped to their distribution locations.

IF there are any of these games left at the Plaid Hat Games office by GenCon (that are not sold out at the PlaidHatGames.com store), they will be for sale in Indy at GenCon.

Meanwhile, the other 7000 copies of the game will be produced in due time and brought over here ASAP to go through normal distribution to local stores, online retailers, etc.

The dawn of the dead is coming, people. Prepare yourselves.

Click here to order Dead of Winter from the PlaidHatGames.com store.

So do these 3000 copies have the "other" problem mentioned? CAN'T WAIT TO GET IT,...

Maybe it will be delayed long enough to release in the dead of winter.

No, they don't have the problem. AFAIK they printed 3000 worth of plastics and then had another problem. Sorry I don't know specifics. For all I know they just ran out of something.

So the 3000 are good to go.

So what is this problem? I would be interested in seeing pictures or hearing more about it, just for the purpose of learning what kinds of issues arise in the game production process.

Does this initial shipment include pre-order copies from alternate retail websites like coolstuffinc.com?

If I preorder from Plaid Hat today will I be a part of the initial 3,000?

Can't speak for the company, but in my experience PHG Store direct preorders usually get here long before preorders from other retail outlets like coolstuffinc. I know the Cloaks and Jungle Elves second summoners came to preorder customers a couple months before they became available elsewhere. I assume, therefore, that the 3,000 copies are only for direct customers and the coolstuff and other store orders will come out of the 7,000 -- I could be wrong, though!

Can someone clarify for me: I pre-ordered Dead of Winter, and I live in the US.

Is it now en route to my house?

Or is it en route to Plaid Hat Games, in turn to be shipped to my house?

It's most helpful to arrange updates with the most important information in the first sentence or two, written as clearly as possible.

So are we looking at end of July delivery? End of August? September? What is the revised estimate for the 3,000?

Is it possible to check where the boat is at the moment?

Is there a cut-off date of pre-orders to be in the first 3,000? I ordered it on June 29th still thinking it would be part of the first 3,000 copies as there was nothing posted telling people otherwise. Since it was mentioned that if any of those 3,000 games were left at the PH store by GenCon, they'd be sold there at GenCon, I figured that all of the first 3,000 copies hadn't been sold out yet. Hope this is the case, as it's why I bothered to pre-order it.
