August Container Update! 8 Years, 4 Months ago  
Whew!

The container has shipped on time, and it should hit our warehouse about July 29th -- barring any quality control problems, typhons, or random custom inspections like last time!

That should put orders on track to start shipping August 1st! Awesome. After the problems with the last container I was very keen to make the August 1st projected date. It looks like we are going to do it.

BTW, the Mystery Set will go on sale Aug. 10th online AND at our booth at Gen Con. We will send out a newsletter at that time to give you all the juicy details. Or...stop by the Gen Con booth and see a huge display of the Mystery Set and a Cavernous River/Wall/Lake set up that will make you drool. The sets will be $99 each and we will have some at Gen Con.

BTW, keep your fingers crossed about clearing customs.

Jeff,

Good news about the container being 'feet wet', and on schedule!!!
Is there some reason why we should be concerned about Customs, or are you just hoping things continue well at the Inbound Inspection center? I know the ICE troopies are being much more thorough these days, but are they really fine-toothing stuff out of China now?

See ya in August at Indy!

Oh, baby, baby, come to papa! I have three Lake Sets on order, and I can't wait! I'll be at GenCon, and hopefully will have the funds to grab some Mystery Sets while I'm there.

Okay, I'm an addict, but I don't want to be cured! Gimme more!

Latest Update!

The container ship that has our container with a bunch of goodies (including the Cavernous Lake Set and the Mystery Set) is now in the middle of the Pacific. The have been no typhoons, pirate ships or Krakens spotted. All still looks good for an Aug. 1st ship date. Keep your fingers crossed.

Don't even kid about that! I hope we got all the bad luck out of the way on the last go around.

(I did hear reports of an 18th century sailing ship (with black sails) in the area, however.)

That is wonderful news. Good luck to DF (and their customers) on this one. May you have fewer headaches.

Hm...You know what else is awesome (for me at least), is that:
1) Perhaps due to a cobwebbed mind or the delay of the CR&W sets, I keep thinking 2-3 months for the Cavernous Lake sets. Almost like thinking October when I hear August. In any case, now that I really think about it, the CL sets are almost freaking here! Some of us may really get our sets within 30-45 days or so (the universe willing).
2) Despite the delay on the CR&W sets, it'll be nice to have the CR&W and CL sets arrive so close together. I was expecting a larger time period between receiving both sets. I'll be nie to have them close together.

My only worries now are that I'll be at Gen Con when my CL sets arrive! Unfortunately my wife (and children) weren't able to go with me go Gen Con this year, BUT, that means I WILL have someone at home to bring my sets in the house for me. :)

Hip, Hip, Hurray! Wow, less than 30 days and I should have the CL and Mystery sets! WOw! Yippie!

Well in fact that is good news.
The bad thing for me is that I will be on vacation when my package will probably arrive in germany :( . So my neighbours, which will be authorized to get the package for me and to do the customs stuff, will be able to play around with it before me ;)
