“Confusion” Preorder, plus “Survive: 5-6 Player Mini-Expansion” Sales to Begin on Saturday, May 7!

Friday, April 29th, 2011
The preorder window for “Confusion: Espionage and Deception in the Cold War” will begin on Saturday, May 7, 2011 at noon (EDT).  This was delayed by 1 week, so that we could get official confirmation of the game being ready for shipment to our warehouse.

Also, at this same time, we will begin taking orders for the “Survive: 5-6 Player Mini-Expansion” and the restock of the “Survive: The Giant Squid Mini-Expansion” as well.

Please note that shipping for Confusion will occur in early/mid-June when this new game arrives in our warehouse.  Therefore, those who place an order for either of the 2 Survive Mini-Expansions in the same order as Confusion will have their complete order shipped in early/mid-June.  Those who place a separate order for either of these 2 Survive Mini-Expansions can expect them to ship within 2 or so weeks, as we’ll have these in stock around May 21, 2011.

With regard to the date change for starting the Confusion preorder, while we don’t take moving the preorder date lightly, we also don’t take lightly our mission to only offer a game for preorder once it is ready for shipping to our warehouse. That way, our customers are preordering a real game with a real delivery date, and not some “hope-for-the-best” arrangement.

The extra delay isn’t the greatest news, but we do hope that our desire to treat our customers the way we’d want to be treated ourselves is clearly demonstrated.

The good news here is that we are thrilled after seeing some production units that we flew in for the Gathering of Friends. The production quality has lived up to our high expectations (those who have been following our production of this game can attest to our pickiness!). From what we heard from those who tried the game at the Gathering of Friends, the game both looks and plays great!

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 7, 2011 at noon EDT. Remember, we have a limit of 500 preorders at a 35% discount before we stop accepting them, so order early to avoid disappointment.
