They’re here and they’re beautiful! Two massive pallets of boxes with the words “‘VYE’ CARD GAME” printed on them have arrived to Sand Hat Games’ fulfillment center. At this point, and until we’ve finished fulfilment, I (Joe) am no longer able to park in my garage, nor is my wife. So yeah, shipping will commence immediately.
Currently, we’re inspecting the copies of the game, to make sure they’re in good condition and organizing them to start packaging. We’ve got shipping labels, packages, and bubble wrap for days. Once we’ve sorted through the games we’ll start stuffing packages and getting them out to you. If the minivan-sized mass of games is any estimation, I imagine this process will take a solid couple weeks. During the same time, we’ll be getting all the Collector’s Editions ready to ship out as well.
I can’t really describe the feeling of looking over all of the games that you guys helped make possible. What started as a “cool idea” between friends has grown into this beautiful, elegant game that will soon be in the hands of nearly 2,000 people from all over the world.
During the 18 month saga of bringing Vye to Kickstarter, there were always reasons to put it aside. Some were the small, constant demands of life, others where the massive fears and uncertainty of undertaking this new, risky venture. It could have easily stayed just another “cool idea.”
But Vye was something special, and now here we are with me standing in my garage looking at an actual ton of Vye. It’s a pretty awe inspiring and humbling feeling. Thank you all for giving us the chance to experience it.
