Pocket Folders and Pocket Journals
7 days ago – Fri, Aug 16, 2019 at 03:03:27 AM

Today, we received another shipment of tooling samples: The dozen pocket folders that were unlocked as stretch goals during the campaign! All twelve look great, and getting our hands on these inspired us to pull the dozen pocket journals and take another look at them.

We're printing some extras of each, for sale on Warehouse 23 and at conventions, so everyone who finds that they want more of these will get a chance at them in the future.

If these had existed in the eighties, I would have used them constantly in school.

These look so cool that we should consider a Kickstarter project to just make folders and journals featuring classic SJGames art.

We should have made an Awful Green Things journal, right? Yeah, a future campaign for more folders and journals has to go on our list of ideas.

Car Wars Expansion Set 2 and Expansion Set 7 Tooling Samples
7 days ago – Fri, Aug 16, 2019 at 03:00:25 AM

Two more tooling samples knocked out and approved! Thank you to Jason (at GPI) and Sabrina (at our office) for keeping these moving forward.

The best news of all? We should see the last of the scanned items/tooling samples before the end of this month. Once those are approved, the entire project can officially move into manufacturing. (Some items are already in final production -- the plastic boxes, the dice -- but the project doesn't officially shift from the tooling stage to the manufacturing stage until all tooling samples are approved.)

Rough Delivery Estimate: This is not 100% certain and hinges on several variables. At the moment, we're looking at possible delivery of all items to our fulfillment warehouse in the second half of November. This could change; we will keep you updated.

Car Wars Expansion Sets 3, 4, and 8 Tooling Samples
8 days ago – Thu, Aug 15, 2019 at 01:20:21 AM

To make this as clear as possible, we are behind schedule. The tooling work should have been completed in June, and it's now August and we are still reviewing and approving factory scans. All of us, from the factory to the SJGames office, did not properly adjust our expectations to take into account the difference between scanning five or six test titles and 30+ finished works. We're running behind schedule . . . but look at the results!!!

Sabrina and I have a call with Jason later today and we will be running through the checklist to determine what remains. Once we finalize the last of the tooling samples, then we will move into final production and have an estimated completion date for the project.

Thank you for your support and patience as we tackle this over-sized and complicated project.
