Spirit Boards Ready to Ship and Cards Charged
about 2 months ago – Sun, Sep 03, 2017 at 08:16:19 PM

Hi Backers!  

A heads up to let you know that we have been busy preparing the spirit board and Infection game add-ons. The former is ready to roll and the latter will follow, probably end of month.

Sanded, stained, oiled, varnished and waxed.

All boards and planchettes are handmade, one of a kind and signed.

So on Wednesday the 6th, we plan to charge cards for all add-on items you may have purchased or any additional funds you may owe through BackerKit. Make sure that you have the correct card information on file. If any issues arise with your payment you’ll receive an email letting you know to correct your payment information. If you need to review payment information, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://the-7th-guest-board-game.backerkit.com/

With you in spirit,

Dead Line Dead

We summoned the spirit of Ozymandias (Ozzie to his friends) and asked if we would be shipping the Sphinx boards this week.
We summoned the spirit of Ozymandias (Ozzie to his friends) and asked if we would be shipping the Sphinx boards this week.

Whelp, we had hoped to have the Sphinx spirit boards and Infection games finished and ready to ship by this date, but we encountered a problem with finding a good supply of wood of consistent quality for the boards, and that threw us off schedule. Otherwise, things are going swimmingly in all other regards and these items are turning out as well or better than even we had anticipated.

So we are now projecting September 5 as the date when we will be charging cards and starting to ship those first two add-on/pre-orders.

On the brighter side, those of you who pledged at the Special Guest level and above have probably received an email from Darkstone Entertainment, the production company responsible for The 7th Guest TV Series, regarding the live video stream and raffle event that is taking place this evening. That should be fun!

Lockdown
4 months ago – Tue, Jun 13, 2017 at 12:24:20 AM

  

Well, the image and the term sound a lot more ominous than is really necessary. This brief update is just to let you know that we will be "locking down" our survey on Friday. So if you have any changes to make to your survey, or have yet to respond to it, now would be a good time to do it.

Other than that little bit of business, I am pleased to report that things are going swimmingly. We are still looking at August 5 at which time your cards will be charged and we will begin to ship Infection games and Sphinx spirit boards.

Spirits Can You Tell Me? Is There Life After Kickstarter?
5 months ago – Sat, May 27, 2017 at 05:52:26 PM

 

At the beginning of the campaign, the Trilobyte team pondered the question, “what sort of add-on items should we offer our supporters"? After days of indecision, we pulled out the prototype of our Sphinx Spirit Board, gathered round a small table in a darkened parlor illuminated only by candlelight to invoke and consult with the spirit of Osiris.

“Oh great spirit, hear us! Should we offer mass-produced things like coffee mugs, t-shirts and baseball caps?", we implored. The spirit quickly moved the Eye of Providence over “NO”.

“Should we offer a line of exclusive hand-crafted, signed and numbered limited editions of premium products that are directly related to the 7th Guest brand?”, we beseeched. A powerful force that was beyond our control pushed the solid wood planchette decisively over “YES”.

As it turned out, the ancient Egyptian god of the underworld and the afterlife proved to be right... once again... as usual. What a know-it-all.

Disclaimer: We do not guarantee powerful ancient spirits will be summoned with your own hand-crafted spirit board. It all depends on the sincerity of the supplicants. But we can guarantee that we are pleased with the performance of our board and are definitely pleased that our add-on items have been so well received by our backers.

We even got a surprising number of pre-orders for the game based on the 7th Guest's infamous microbe puzzle. It's almost as if it were infectious and went viral.

DDO Players took notice, and was kind enough to write up a comprehensive report on the post-campaign phase.

The bottom line here is that we are humbly grateful for your extended support.

Some semi-boring, but essential housekeeping notes

You will be able to make changes to your survey for another couple of weeks at which time we will be locking down orders so that we will have a good idea about how many of each item we need to plan for in terms of production and manufacturing. This is not a permanent lock on your survey, but it is a semi-hard deadline.  

Your cards will not be charged by BackerKit until we are ready to ship our first add-on items. Those are likely to be the spirit board and the Infection game. We have set that target date for August 5, 2017. We will ship as many products together as possible. Stauf & Tad and personalized miniatures will only be shipped with the 7th Guest board game.
