Latest Updates from Our Project:

Fulfillment Update: The ships have sailed!
over 1 year ago – Fri, Jan 08, 2021 at 09:26:05 AM

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls,


I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and New Years. I am thrilled to say two boats with containers full of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure have finally sailed from China! A ship headed to the UK/Europe left port on 12/25 and is scheduled to arrive on 1/20. Another shipped headed to the USA/Canada left port on 12/31 and is scheduled to arrive in Miami on 2/8. 


The reason for the further delayed shipping is the same reason I mentioned in the last update: because of Covid-19 there is a massive supply/demand problem at the port in China. We would have a set date to sail and then receive an update that the date had been pushed back a week. This happened multiple times. 


The good news is that our games are finally on the high seas and our fulfillment partners Quartermaster Logistics (USA/Canada) and Spiral Galaxy (UK/EU) are ready and waiting. 


The new and hopefully final plan is to fulfill all orders in February/March 2021. This includes the rest of the world (Asia through AFI and Australia/New Zealand through Aetherworks).


I also received a final production copy of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure and it looks marvelous! I am going to create an unboxing video for you to take a look and share it in an update in the next few days. 


I greatly appreciate your patience during this long and complicated process. It has been quite the quest to fulfill this game, and while it took a bit longer than expected we are very happy with the results. 


A Quest Kids quest is never done!

We're locking orders on Tuesday, 11/10!

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls!


I hope all is well in your part of the kingdom. I know it has been a while since I have provided an updated to our Matching Adventure backers, so here is a lot of information about the status of our project.


Please note: if you are a backer of our original Quest Kids campaign some of this info has already been shared with you in our most recent update on that project. 


MASS PRODUCTION IS COMPLETE

All of the components for The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure have been produced! They are currently in the process of being compiled into their individual game boxes. I will share images as soon as I have them.


This completion date is quite a bit later than the completion date promises I received over the summer (and subsequently communicated to you). There have been varying reasons why the deadline has been continuously pushed by the manufacturer (National Holidays, slight printing problems, back log of projects, etc.). It has been very frustrating. However, the games are finally printed and we are on schedule to have them on a boat by mid-November.


I realize this time line puts us most likely past a Christmas fulfillment date for our backers. I know this is disappointing news and I am truly sorry (believe me - I want nothing more than to have these games as gifts under the tree). I will continue to do all I can to make this happen.


LOCKING ORDERS ON TUESDAY, 11/10/2020

The last day to make final updates to your The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure order is Tuesday, 11/10. After this date, we will lock your reward selections and charge cards for add-on item purchases, pledge upgrades, and shipping.


Don't worry - you can still update your shipping address up until the time we lock addresses for shipping in December.


If you need to review your information or pledge status (or wish to add additional items),  you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our  BackerKit project page at https://the-quest-kids-matching-adventure.backerkit.com.


If you haven't filled out your survey and you miss the deadline you can still submit your information, however your shipment may be delayed.


Thanks again for your support and remember, now more than ever, a Quest Kids quest is never done!

Matching Adventure Survey & Production Update!
over 1 year ago – Mon, Sep 14, 2020 at 11:16:19 PM

Greetings Citizens of Treasure Falls, 

I hope you had a great weekend!

BACKERKIT SURVEY UPDATE

Over 80% of backers have completed their surveys! Thank you so much for knocking this out - it helps us tremendously while planning the next steps of our project. At this point everyone should have received an email from BackerKit with a link to the survey. If you are yet to see one please let me know and I will send one over ASAP. We will be locking orders in early October, so please try and complete your survey soon. Thanks!

We have not had many support queries (which is great!), however if you do encounter any issues with the survey certainly let us know and we will be happy to help you.

PRODUCTION UPDATE

We received our first production sample of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure last week. We are very happy with 90% of it. Here are some pics:

Inside box art and outer box side art.
Back of box
Magnetic Treasure Box (used to draw treasure tokens)
Treasure Box opened.
Fronts of Adventure Tiles and Tree House Tiles.
Ally tiles featuring gold foil printing of "SPECIAL POWER".
Some backs of Adventure Tiles featuring silly bad guys from Treasure Falls.
Hero Tiles with gold foil printing.

The one major issue with the prototype is the manufacturer printed the treasure tokens as squares instead of as circles (see below). We are obviously correcting this error. 

Treasure tokens (printed as squares instead of circles).

We are happy with the quality and appearance of the components. The manufacturer is going to send us some photos of the updated circular treasure tokens and once we approve those mass production will commence! 

Thanks as always for your support! A Quest Kids quest is never done.

Thank you!!! Your Matching Adventure shall soon begin.

Greetings Adventurers of Treasure Falls,

Our quest has concluded and we ended our journey with 293 heroes in our party and achieved 159% of our goal! Also, yesterday I moved the goal down to $9,500 to unlock the gold foil background stretch goal for all Hero Tiles, and we unlocked this upgrade in the last minutes of the campaign! 

My job now is to create the best version of The Quest Kids: Matching Adventure that I  possibly can and to communicate important milestones openly and frequently during the production process. 

Speaking of the production process...it will begin very soon! I'll send an update next week focused on our pledge manager timing and plans. The pledge manager is the process that will allow you to finalize your order and potentially add items to your pledge. The pledge manager survey will most likely be sent next week!

Thank you again for supporting our matching game with a fantasy twist. 

A Quest Kids quest is never done.

Dustin
