Ahoy Captains,

Your games have been unloaded and delivered safely into our warehouse in Rotterdam. Your pledges are assembled and boxes are being labeled as we speak, and they will be sent out to you this Friday. Thank you again for your patience. We are very happy that despite some delays we are able to ship in time for christmas! 

This will be one of our last Kickstarter updates, but keep following our progress and all future updates on our FB page: This is very exciting for us and we are very curious to your reaction when you get the game so it would be very nice if you post a picture of it on our FB page or like, share, comment, etc!

If you have any questions about the shipment, the game, the rules, or just want to let us know what you think of the game, please do not hesitate to contact us on

Best regards,

Captain Nick and Captain Dick

Ahoy captains!

This is it! We’re finally getting ready to ship! We will lock down shipping addresses in 48 hours. That means you have two days to update your shipping address in your BackerKit survey. If you need to recover your survey, go to and enter your email address to have your survey sent to you again.

For backers that have not answered surveys yet, you will still be able to get your rewards if you answer your surveys after the lockdown date but they may ship out later than the backers that have responded on time. We’re currently aiming to ship rewards this month. If you need to change your shipping address please make the changes in your BackerKit survey in the next two days. Thanks!

The container with your copies is only 150 miles away from the Rotterdam harbour as you can see in the picture below! 

Thank you all for your patience!


Captain Niek and Captain Dick

Ahoy captains!

Your game is underway to Rotterdam in the Thalassa Doxa (follow the ship on vessel tracker), it is planned to arrive there the 19th of November (if it is not attacked by the notorious pirate). We expect the games at our fulfillment partner on the 24th of November (this is the guy who packs and sends the game to you). Your game will arrive at your doorstep end of November, beginning of December (depending on your location).

Thanks for you patience, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us!

Kind regards,

The Captains!
