Have many waiting on rousselle's list so won't repeat. Was glad to get CPC's Vintage early. Both Honeybee's arrived last week as did Barclay Mountain's Divide of a Nation that was delayed at USPCC. Creature Comforts Red & Black came in on time. Brooklyn 101 Blue deck and Wind Up deck arrived from their selling sites.

Waiting on...
Realms (Red, Blue, Black) (July '17) - Black done. Red & Blue done just waiting to be sent to Hong Kong delivery. Should receive in Sept.
Runic Royalty (July '17) - On way to creator so he can ship them out.
The Right of Kings (July '17) - Delay at USPCC. Should have been done end of Aug. but no new update since July.
Arthurian(Sept. '17) - No idea when limited, yes I screwed myself thinking he would keep these at 50, is coming. Will PM him asking for something extra besides signed key card because he's signing shit and selling it like crazy so signature is worthless now. :roll:
Bharata (December '17) - Tracking number so just waiting for decks to arrive to me way early. Sunish was early with Divine Art decks so it's not like he puts a ton of buffer room on estimated delivery to be safe.
Inferno (Sept. '17) - Decks are done. Delay in tuck cases makes it look like Nov. delivery. I have faith as all extra stuff besides booklet are done.
Move on, nothing to see here.

Guys, SINS should arrive soon!

I am waiting the notification of delivery of the big shipment to Gamblers, hopefully this week, then we need some days to organize then we should be ready to ship - I'm doing everything is in my power to make it faster as possible.

Sorry for the delay and thank you for the patience!

I'll reach out to him again today; it's been quite a while, and I've been trying not to pester him too much, knowing that he's trying to get a bunch of projects out the door. I'll let you know what he says. :)

Lotrek responded right away, and the items we discussed will be on their way when he sends the next batch of backed decks, currently planned to go out in a week or two. So, good news, there. :)

September came and went, and I actually received a few of my KS-backed projects, and then I forgot to update this list at the end of the month, until here we are, five days into October, and another shipment arrived.

As with last month, I received one project months ahead of the original anticipated fulfillment date and before I could even add it to my list: the Bharata playing cards (anticipated December '17) arrived in September, three months ahead of expectations. Honeybee V2 (May '17) arrived in September, as did its sister project, Honeybee Special Edition with Metalluxe (July '17). Pipmen World (July '17) also brightened the month, along with the timely Dia de los Muertos Coloring Book & decks (September '17) and Metal Rider Back Blue edition (September '17). Finally, a few days into October (which is to say, today), I received the two Giovanni / Thirdway Industries projects: Sins (July '17) and Eva (September '17).

Thus, that's 7 projects that dropped off of my list in September (for large values of September), plus 1 arriving before it could be added to the list. I'm adding only one Kickstarter project that were anticipated to be fulfilled in October to my list. That's a net decrease of 6 projects on the list. Here's the list of playing card-related projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including October, 2017 for which I am awaiting fulfillment:

  • Venexiana Dark (February '15) -- As noted previously, I've received all of the items for this project except for two uncuts. Lotrek and I agreed to a substitute item, which should be included with the forthcoming shipment of other Halfmoon/Oath projects.
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order (also an uncut). Lotrek and I have agreed to a replacement item for this one, as well, to be shipped with the next batch of decks.
  • Grotesk Macabre Black Gold (July '16) -- Shipment should be taking place soon, if I understand correctly.
  • Grotesk Bronze (October '16) -- Same as above.
  • Liturgy Bronze Red/Green (November '16) -- See above.
  • Liturgy Red/Green misaligned (January '17) -- See above.
  • High Gloss Metallic Gold, Silver, and Bronze (July '17) -- As of August 30, shipping was supposed to begin in early September, but no word since then.
  • Origins Shadows of History (August '17) -- Decks have arrived at GW's fulfillment center and shipping should begin Very Soon Now.
  • Royal (August '17) -- Natalia posted that there's been a delay, and that fulfillment should likely occur in October. She has also said she will throw in an extra deck for each backer as a thanks for our patience. Classy.
  • Green Stamps (September '17) -- There's been a slight delay in order to make sure the stamp edges are correct, with production hopefully wrapping up this month (October).
  • Agenda (September '17) -- At last word, production anticipated to wrap up right about now, with fulfillment expected to begin mid-October-ish.
  • Arthurian (September '17) -- Fulfillment has apparently begun, as a few people have commented on the project that their decks have arrived from GW, so I assume mine will be arriving soon, as well.
  • HANA (September '17) -- Steve reported in early September that the art files have been submitted to EPCC and the manufacturing process is moving forward.
  • The Font Deck (October '17) -- Decks are being printed "as we speak," which is a little bit behind schedule, so fulfillment is currently estimated to happen in early November.

So, that's 14 projects, many of which show signs of arriving in October.

And you? What deliveries are you currently anticipating from non-traditional outlets?

Well, it's been just a little over a month since my last update, and a couple of projects get to be knocked off my eagerly-anticipating list, but more than a couple are being added to the list.

Kickstarter and self-funded projects that I backed which arrived in October include: High Gloss Metallic Gold, Silver, and Bronze (originally expected to arrive in July '17), from MPC. Very shiny. Arthurian (September '17) from King's Wild / Jackson Robinson also arrived. Lotrek's Ambassador's Collectors' Edition arrived before it even had a chance to get officially added to the list (it was expected to arrive in October, and it did!). Also arriving before it could be added to the list was the National Playing Card Collectors' Day Deck 2017 by Seasons.

Thus, that's 2 projects that dropped off of my list in October, plus 2 arriving before they could be added to the list. I'm adding four Kickstarter projects that were anticipated to be fulfilled in November to my list. That's a net increase of 2 projects. Here's the list of playing card-related projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including November, 2017 for which I am awaiting fulfillment:

  • Venexiana Dark (February '15) -- As noted previously, I've received all of the items for this project except for two uncuts. Lotrek and I agreed to a substitute item, which should be included with the forthcoming shipment of other Halfmoon/Oath projects.
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order (also an uncut). Lotrek and I have agreed to a replacement item for this one, as well, to be shipped with the next batch of decks.
  • Grotesk Macabre Black Gold (July '16) -- Shipment should be taking place this very week, if I understand correctly.
  • Grotesk Bronze (October '16) -- Same as above.
  • Liturgy Bronze Red/Green (November '16) -- See above.
  • Liturgy Red/Green misaligned (January '17) -- See above.
  • Origins Shadows of History (August '17) -- Shipping is said to have concluded last Wednesday (or was it the Wednesday before that?) and already, many project backers are reporting that they've received theirs. As of today, people are still reporting that their decks have just arrived, so it's reasonable to assume that mine will arrive any day now.
  • Royal (August '17) -- Natalia posted yesterday that the decks should reach her within about a week, and fulfillment will begin immediately thereafter. She has also reiterated that she will throw in an extra deck for each backer as a thanks for our patience. Classy.
  • Green Stamps (September '17) -- As of a couple days ago, printing is in progress and fulfillment should begin Real Soon Now.
  • Agenda (September '17) -- Production has just recently concluded according to a recent post, and now they are waiting for the decks to ship out to them so that they can begin fulfillment.
  • HANA (September '17) -- Steve reported in a comment on October 19th that the cards are in production.
  • The Font Deck (October '17) -- According to a recent update, fulfillment is to begin this week!
  • Magnificent & Hippos (November '17) -- "You'll be getting your decks really soon!"
  • NEO (November '17) -- The regular Neo decks are already printed and at the fulfillment center (GW); they are awaiting completion of the LTD deck before shipping out orders.
  • Jetsetter in Restricted Red (November '17) -- Physical proofs revealed the need for a couple of tweaks, which means production will be slightly delayed. Currently, fulfillment anticipated for December.
  • Iron Horse (November '17) -- A recent update indicates that the cards are already in production and should be ready "soon."

So, that's 16 projects, several of which show signs of arriving in November.

And you? What deliveries are you currently anticipating from non-traditional outlets?

Happy December!

November was a pretty good month for receiving KS and other alternative-funding decks. Highlights from my mailbox included: Grotesk Macabre Black Gold & Silver (originally anticipated to arrive July '16), Grotesk Macabre Bronze (October '16), Liturgy Bronze Red & Green (November '16), Liturgy Red & Green misaligned (January '17), Origins Shadows of History (August '17), Agenda (September '17), The Font Deck (October '17), and Magnificent & Hippos (November '17).

That's eight, count them eight projects that rolled in, and many of those projects included multiple designs or recolors. I mean, really, this was a good month.

That's 8 projects that dropped off of my list in November. I'm adding only one Kickstarter project that is anticipated to be fulfilled in December to my list. That's a net decrease of 7 projects. Here's the list of playing card-related projects that have had an anticipated delivery of up-to and including December, 2017 for which I am awaiting fulfillment:

  • Venexiana Dark (February '15) -- So, yeah... As noted previously, I've received all of the items for this project except for two uncuts. Lotrek and I agreed to a substitute item, which requires some special attention because it is outside the runs he already has scheduled. These should be included with the next shipment of other Halfmoon/Oath projects. :)
  • Icons Imperial Edition (May '15) -- I have a last remaining item from this complicated order (also an uncut). Lotrek and I have agreed to a replacement item for this one, as well, to be shipped with the next batch of decks.
  • Royal (August '17) -- Natalia posted a couple weeks ago that half of the decks have already shipped and the other half should ship out soon. A few individuals have posted that they haven't received their decks just yet, and I'm in the same boat, but I'm guessing it shouldn't be long now.
  • Green Stamps (September '17) -- As of November 4th, printing is in progress and fulfillment should begin soon.
  • HANA (September '17) -- A couple weeks ago, Steve shared photos of the production proofs of the cards (which he was very happy with) and the tucks (which required a little tweaking), as well as some other parts of the project. Everything looks exquisite; he's hoping that full production on the cards and tucks can begin soon.
  • NEO (November '17) -- Per a post to the project's comment section, there is hope that fulfillment will take place in December.
  • Jetsetter in Restricted Red (November '17) -- As of mid-November, the new proofs have been approved and the project was entering the production schedule queue.
  • Iron Horse (November '17) -- Apparently, there were some problems with the production files which had to be corrected, which has a cascading effect on the project schedule. Look for fulfillment from GW to commence near the end of February or early March.
  • Golden Age (December '17) -- As of yesterday, the cards and tucks are printed, and now it's time for cutting and assembly of the decks. Fulfillment should not be far behind.

So, that's 9 projects, several of which show signs of arriving in December.

And you? What deliveries are you currently anticipating from non-traditional outlets?
