Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

So every one in the US should have recieved their rewards by now and almost everyone in Canada.

Please let me know if you do not recieve your shipment by the end of the week.

Australia & Asia, should be arriving next week.

UK orders will begin shipping early next week with the rest of the EU and Europe following into the following week.

Thank you All and let me know of any problems.


Tali on its way.

If you are in the US, you should have recieved your shipping notice.  Depending on your order, it may arrive via regular mail delivery at the last mile.  Or if your order is large enough, you may have recieved a FedEx message.  

For other regions it will take another few weeks for the last shipping leg to start as Tali is heading to all the international hubs.

Tali will start shipping next week.

After consulting the manufacturer, we have decided to do some reorganizing with some of the awards such that we can send all the orders out with the correct custom Tali bags.   Since the full game does come with the correct bag (and was packaged correctly), we will go ahead and retrieve enough from the extra stock to make all the rewards correct for everyone who have helped make Tali a reality. 

We will be completing that this week and then we will start picking, packing, and shipping next week.

The US orders will ship out next week as well as the CA and Asia orders.  The EU, UK, and Europe orders will be sent to Games Quest at the same time as the others are sent out.  That means the EU, UK, and Europe orders will be sent around 2 weeks later to backers.

We decided not to wait any longer as the manufacturer has pretty much told us they are unsure when factory production will be starting again as the Chinese government has closed most provinces for travel and business for at least a week and some provinces longer over the Corona virus.  Additional production would have taken 15 days with another couple of weeks for logistics and shipping, on top of when they are actually able to start production again, so a minimium of a month / 5 more weeks best case.


Tali: The Goods have arrived, well mostly

I would like to report that everything but the Custom Tali dice bags have safely arrived in the US at the Quarter Master Logistics warehouse.  On Monday the Chinese New Year will be over and I will see how quickly they can rush the missing dice bags to us, as the small size should not take very long for shipping.  If it is quick enough we will wait a few weeks at most before shipping all the awards out.  Otherwise, I will re-verify who would like a Swords & Sails bag and who would like to wait longer again and ship things out then.


TALI Update, its coming
3 months ago – Fri, Jan 17, 2020 at 01:05:30 AM

I have real good news and some more bad news.

The good news is that the TALI games and unique knuckle bone dice have started the journey by air freight to our US fulfillment partner, Quartermaster Logistics.

At the same time the factory screwed up again by not printing all the required TALI custom logo dice bags.

The bags are correct and included in the base game packaging but is missing in all the Knuckle Bone Only packages / rewards.

The bags are supposed to be included with each Knuckle Bone Dice Only Reward, as I decided to include one bag standard with each set, to help compensate everyone since we were so late.  The content labeling on the packaging will say 1 custom cloth draw string dice bag.

So, for everyone who should recieve these bags either from adding extra bags to thier order or from ordering the Knuckle Bone Only reward, or from extra compensation for backing over $50, I ask would you be willing to accept a Sword&Sails custom bag in its place to get your order probably 4 weeks sooner, or would you rather wait the 4 more weeks to allow the manufacturer to fix thier additional screw-up.   It will take most likely at least more 4 weeks since it is Chinese New Year in just a few days, which means nothing more will happen till Feb 1st, and they need to produce 1000 more bags yet.

The only other way to get the bags that were produced more quickly, would be to upgrade to the base game, which does include the TALI custom dice bag.  I would be more than willing to upgrade anyone who is receiving 1 or more dice only options to one copy of the base game for only $5 more (a $5 discount), which would replace one of your Knuckle Bone dice sets, but that would loose 1 of the red knuckle bones as the TALI game only comes with the 4 White ones (no 5th red die).

Alternatively, anyone with more than two sets of knucklebones can trade in two sets for a copy of the base game (the 4 white knucklebone dice,  bag, and full game) and I will throw in one of the Swords&Sails Logo'd bag as additional compensation (2 sets of knuclebones for $25 was a reward level).

Either any of the above or we can just wait longer.

Please comment and let me know what everyone would prefer.

Thank you,

Jason Williams.
