I'm waiting on:

-"Dantes inferno bicycle playing card deck" (Sep '13) - This deck is sadly never going to happen, got scammed there...
-"Grotesk" - All foil editions, also Liturgy, but I have no worries about the delivery and quality of these ones ;)
-"World War II Warships" by sishou (Nov '16) - I was on the fence about this set and finally backed it, which I now regret as there has been no communication with backers and surveys haven't been sent out yet. I fear a Dante inferno situation again :(

Not repeating any that I have in common with rousselle...
Teliad (Oct-16) Update today said shipping to start end of week;
Memento Mori + Bone + Ebon (Aug-16) I have tracking number, all in NY;
Chernobyl (Oct-16) Nov. 1st update said customs delay, they're hoping for this month to get all decks;
Papilio (Oct-16) Delivery company won't commit to ETA in Switzerland so he can ship. Hoping this week. And he has school exams to add to his stress.
WW II Battleships (Nov-16) Messaged SiShou through Facebook, his response on Oct. 21st:

"Hey rich sorry for the lack of updates I had to travel to china for three weeks hence lack of Internet and china won't let me get on Kickstarter easily. I'm in hk now so I can give an update. Rest assured all the funds have not been touched and I'll be sending the designs to lpcc for them to print soon. But I'll only head back to uk in December just some timing issues but the project will carry on.
It's just a timing issue since it overlapped my wedding banquet in HK. Don't worry I'll post and update soon on Kickstarter. Just need to plan it out how to put it nicely for all the backers"

No KS updates though so I'm concerned. His Diamonds deck went well so hoping this will.

Following the trend of the past few months, a couple KS projects arrived in November and a couple decks get added as being anticipated in/by December, so the list stays pretty flat.

November saw the arrival of the VHS deck from CPC (anticipated in October, so not particularly late), which is likely their most original outing in some time. Another October-anticipated deck also arrived right at th beginning of November, Sisterhood of the Blood. And... that's it.

Only two more projects are being added to my list that are anticipated for December arrival. So, here's a list of KS projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including December, 2016 for which I am awaiting fulfillment:

  • Venexiana Dark (February '15) -- As noted previously, I've received all of the items for this project except the uncuts. Lotrek and I agreed to a substitute item, which he will ship out with...
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order. Lotrek will be taking care of this shortly. We have been in touch on the subject.
  • Grotesk Macabre (January '16) -- Awaiting Black Mass (everything else has long since been received), which is currently wrapping up production.
  • Grotesk Macabre Black Gold (July '16) -- Shipping of this project is expected to be combined with Black Mass (see above), and is likewise anticipated soon.
  • Dedalo (November '16) -- As of November 24th, decks had landed in the US and would soon be trucking to GW for distribution. So, fulfillment should begin soon.
  • Moirai (November '16) -- According to an update posted yesterday, USPCC anticipates having tucks printed today and the cards printed next week, and then they hope to ship out to Moirai HQ before the holiday shutdown. Fingers crossed.
  • Coloring (November '16) -- A December 1st update to the project says that shipping has been completed, so cards should be arriving Any Day Now.
  • Don Quixote (December '16) -- As of October 11th, the Backerkit was going to be locked down... no news since. A comment posted by the project creators on October 2nd said it looked like they were a bit ahead of schedule. Not sure what has happened since.
  • Legal Tender (December '16) -- An update yesterday indicates that an issue with the holographic foiling has led to a slight production delay; cards will likely not ship out this month.

And you? What deliveries are you still anticipating from Kickstarter projects?

December saw the arrival of the Denim deck from CPC (anticipated in January, so it arrived one month early). The Coloring Deck, originally anticipated in November, also arrived in December, for a rather quick turn-around from this first-time card creator. Granted, this was an unusual deck from an unusual printer, but still... a quick turn, even if it was a couple weeks later than originally anticipated. The Don Quixote deck was anticipated in December, and it arrived in December.

Thus, two decks drop off my list from last month, one doesn't even get a chance to be added because it arrived early, and three more are added because they were expected to ship this month. So, here's a list of KS projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including December, 2016 for which I am awaiting fulfillment:

  • Venexiana Dark (February '15) -- Yeahhh. So, as noted previously, I've received all of the items for this project except the uncuts. Lotrek and I agreed to a substitute item, which hasn't been sent yet, but I'm hoping it'll come my way when the Liturgy decks are shipped this month.
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order (plus some replacement cards). Hoping these will also be taken care of soon.
  • Grotesk Macabre (January '16) -- Awaiting Black Mass (everything else has long since been received), which is still in progress.
  • Grotesk Macabre Black Gold (July '16) -- Shipping of this project is expected to be combined with Black Mass (see above), and is likewise in progress.
  • Dedalo (November '16) -- Decks arrived at GW as of mid-December, and fulfillment for the US began a few days ago, according to a recent comment posted on the project page. These should be heading my way soon!
  • Moirai (November '16) -- Stewart says that he should receive the decks this Friday, and if so, he'll prep them for shipping over the weekend. Either way, look for fulfillment to begin this coming week.
  • Legal Tender (December '16) -- Per December 8's update, an issue with the holographic foiling has led to a slight production delay; card production is on hold while Jackson evaluates the best alternative to his original plans.
  • Wood Rider Back (January '17) -- As of an update posted today, shipping has already been completed. I've received my tracking information, so mine should arrive by sometime next week!
  • Skateboard (January '17) -- Production expected to be wrapped up this month.
  • Impressions Cardinal Edition (January '17) -- Production is about to begin, and fulfillment is expected to begin end of January or in February.

And you? What deliveries are you currently anticipating from Kickstarter projects?
