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?

Here's what I'm waiting for so far:

UnTied States "Crown" & "Libertas" v2 (November 2017) Last update was Dec 15 stating they were coming.....hopeful (Ember Waves)
HorROAR! (December 2016) Last update was Jan 18 saying they were sent to printing....fingers crossed
ANCHOR (January 2017) No update since October 2016 (another Ember Waves)
Bicycle Prism Gilded Deck Limited Edition (February 2017) not late but no update since September 2016......worried (CPC)
Bicycle Imperium Unbranded and Branded (February 2017) not late...last update December 2016

I've been pretty lucky with KS so far. Only decks I didn't receive were the Vintage Vampires Limited and Unlimited decks from June 2015. Creator refunded my money so no complaints there. Have a few backed for later in the year so I'll keep my list updated.

Thanks for your update, rookiecrdnut!

January was a relatively quiet month both with regard to pledging and receiving KS projects. Dedalo (originally anticipated this past November) arrived in all it's glory, as did Moirai (also originally expected in November). The Wood Rider Back from Max and CPC was anticipated in January, and arrived right on time. Haere Mai (am I the only one who reads this phonetically as "Here am I?") arrived a month *early*, insofar as it was originally expected to be fulfilled in February. So, that one never even made my list.

So, three 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 are expected to ship this month. Here's a list of KS projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including February, 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 hasn't been sent yet.
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order (plus some replacement cards). Last I heard, the replacement cards should be heading my way 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.
  • Legal Tender (December '16) -- Recent update indicates that these are currently in production. Once finished, they'll take a month or so to reach the fulfillment house (GW, I think). So... fulfillment anticipated in March, at this point.
  • Skateboard (January '17) -- As of mid-January, production expected to wrap up mid-February at USPCC, with fulfillment likely to happen early March.
  • Impressions Cardinal Edition (January '17) -- According to a comment posted just a few hours ago as I write this, production is being wrapped up and fulfillment is likely to begin next week.
  • Eros Erotic Tarot (February '17) -- As of early January, production is moving right along, but boy are things busy at Casa Uusi.
  • Imperium (February '17) -- In late December, they announced that all of the decks would be printed by USPCC, in part to speed up the production process.
  • Prism Day and Dusk (February '17) -- Production is in full swing, and should be completed within a few weeks.

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

My wait list (stolen from rookiecrdnut and roussele) :

Grotesk Macabre (January '16) -- Awaiting Black Mass (Hopefully ships Feb. 20).
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.
Legal Tender (December '16) -- Recent update indicates that these are currently in production. Guessing April earliest.
Imperium (February '17) -- In late December, they announced that all of the decks would be printed by USPCC, in part to speed up the production process.
ICONS Trial deck (Date ?) -- Lotrek via PM has uncut sheets, owes to 7-8 people. Hopes to ship with Black Mass if he can find time since Black Mass priority. Not worried.
HorROAR! (December 2016) Last update was Jan 18 saying they were sent to printing....fingers crossed
Bicycle Prism Gilded Deck Limited Edition (February 2017) Waiting on 2 from UC member's brick buy. CPC not updating is concerning since the deck was printed once already.
World War II Battleships (November '16) -- Nothing since December update. Hope it's not dead in water, not like him to go so silent.

I had held out hope that with the sudden increase in Kickstarter activity that February was going to be a hopping month for *receiving* previous KS project rewards, as well. It didn't quite turn out that way, however. While the non-KS project Celestial by Encarded arrived, as did a couple of Kickstarter decks, it turned out to be a relatively slow month at the ol' Rousselle mailbox. Still, everything that arrived was awesome. A few replacement cards came in for the ICONS Imperial deck, which served to remind me of why I love that project so much. Impressions Cardinal Edition from MPC (originally anticipated for January fulfillment) arrived with the look and feel (and that "new car smell" aroma) that we've come to expect from MPC, and Randy Butterfield's Rome decks (originally anticipated in April of this year) arrived two months earlier than expected. These decks really showed off what an expert designer can do when the card manufacturer offers perfect printing registration.

So, one deck drops 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 originally expected to ship this month. Here's a list of KS projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including March, 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 should arrive when other projects are fulfilled.
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order. Replacement cards have been received.
  • 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.
  • Legal Tender (December '16) -- Jackson posted photos of final production samples a couple weeks ago, and they're looking good. Hopefully this means production is completed or very near completed, and that shipping to the fulfillment center will happen soon. Given what has been posted thus far, I'd guess that if shipment happens very soon, decks will arrive stateside by late March/early April, and fulfillment would commence in April.
  • Skateboard (January '17) -- As of mid-February, production was wrapping up and decks were expected to ship to fulfillment center last week or thereabouts, with backer survey to verify addresses at around the same time, with fulfillment expected to commence early March.
  • Eros Erotic Tarot (February '17) -- As of January 4th, production is moving right along. They did indicate the fulfillment would likely be delayed to April.
  • Imperium (February '17) -- Mid-February update indicated a change in design to the foil backs is delaying fulfillment likely to April.
  • Prism Day and Dusk (February '17) -- As of a couple days ago, Day and Dusk decks are expected to reach fulfillment center in about a week. Spectrum and other MPC-printed decks are being delayed, which will also delay fulfillment.
  • Spirit II (March '17) -- An update from mid-February gave a breakdown on the production status of each component. Production is well underway.
  • Gemini (March '17) -- Production is completed, and items should soon be on their way to fulfillment center. Fulfillment anticipated late March/early April.
  • Calaveras de Azucar (March '17) -- As of February 24th, production is underway and fulfillment is expected to be completed sometime in April.

So yeah. For the first time in a while, I have over ten Kickstarter projects on my list of "should have real soon now." And, in many cases, it looks like I'll still have to wait until April. Alas.

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

Have held off writing in this thread until now but I believe the time has come mainly so I can just remember what I'm due.

To date I'm waiting on:
Gemini (Lorenzo / Stockholm 17)
Legal Tender (JR / Kings Wild)

And the rest are all Lotrek's:

Icons Imperial: Decks received, waiting on add on items
Grotesk Macabre: Decks received, waiting on Black Mass
Grotesk Black Gold: Awaiting Decks
Grotesk Bronze: Awaiting Decks
Liturgy Treasure: Decks received, waiting on uncut (from Oath website)
Liturgy Red / Green: Awaiting standard decks, misaligned decks & uncuts (from Oath website)

I think that's all. Not worried, I know they will come eventually, Hopefully all at once :lol:
