Hey Everyone! I do not post nearly enough production blog updates, normally because I go home and I'm tired. That's no excuse for not keeping you guys in the loop. Here is a quick status update.
First of all, I now have OVER 15,000 PIECES!!! organized in sandwich bags. I am approaching 20,000 pieces.
I am finished all painted pieces (not boards) at this point:
~1,800 painted Farm demand tokens
~1,800 painted Mine demand tokens
~1,800 painted Lumber demand tokens
~1,800 painted Ranch demand tokens
~600 painted farm tiles
~600 painted mine tiles
~600 painted lumber tiles
~600 painted ranch tiles
~1,300 blue player stock tokens
~1,300 green player stock tokens
~1,300 salmon (it was supposed to be crimson) player stock tokens
~1,300 violet player stock tokens
~1,300 silver player stock tokens
~1,300 gold player stock tokens
100 each of 8 of the 16 Railroad company starter tiles are raster engraved and finished (The original copies companies).
600 currently unpainted game board pieces (That is about 30 copies worth of game boards)
Where is all this stuff? Sandwich bags all over my house and my TechShop locker. LOL.
So let's talk about whats not done yet:
Stock certificates aren't printed (I actually special ordered bond paper today)
No game boards are painted (I just made templates to start assembling water pieces onto land pieces)
There are still more game boards to be cut out (I'm having the Kerr family cut those)
There are still 100 each of 8 of the 16 company starter tiles left to engrave (I'm working on this)
There are still track pieces and city demand tiles (passenger demand) to be cut out (The Kerr family will be cutting these)
The cloth demand bags need to be made (My friend Matt Cassidy is making these for me)
The game boxes need to be made (Will have the Kerr family do these)
Dear December backers:
I know you don't hear from me often, but I am still trying to ship these in December. I apologize that I don't update you enough but I am usually too exhausted to post to social media (I'm also just not that big on social media). Please please please feel free to message me on KickStarter, I try to respond within a few days.
Much love, and thanks for your patience,
