Update #39

Shipping is starting in North America

Hello all,

We hope this message finds many of you knee deep in zombie guts! For those of you still sharpening your machetes and adding nails to your Louisville Sluggers, we have good news:

Shipping is underway in North America. Our fulfillment team has received all of the inventory (we basically had to pry it out of US custom’s hands with a crowbar) and they are currently packing up product to be shipped out. We have been told that all orders will have left the warehouse by next Wednesday. We can’t thank you guys enough for your extended patience and support throughout this shipping ordeal.

In addition, we wanted to address a few concerns posted recently, primarily revolving around the amount of content in the Wasteland expansion. We’ve heard a few people complain that the Wasteland box is big and shiny, but the actual physical components inside are on the light side. To begin, the size of the box was set by the punch boards for tiles and tokens, and intended to hold additional content down the road. It is true that when you open up the Wasteland expansion, at first glance there are only a few components. There is, however, quite a bit of content inside.

Let’s look at what was promised in the Kickstarter campaign, versus how the Wasteland box evolved based on game design changes:

Armory cards - The KS promised 6 new weapons, the box contains 9.

Survivor cards - The KS promised 3 new survivors, the box contains 14.

Tiles - The KS promised eight new doubled-sided map tiles. We delivered four double sided tiles, and one double sided base tile (which is the size of four smaller tiles).

Something’s Happening Cards - This component was removed from the design in the new systems of Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs. Their function was roped into the Story Booklet. The Story Booklet in the Wasteland expansion contains a new campaign with four chapters, each of which take a more narrative and scenario based feel than the Zpoc2 core game. It also includes Road Events (a new mechanic), Special Events, truck-based combat/exploration, and 24 new scavenging locations.

Skill cards - The KS promised that you would get 7 new skill cards. These are unfortunately not in the Wasteland box. The KS campaign stated that the expansion would come with mutations, a new type of powerful skill cards which would require a negative in-game trade off. During design, we loved the mutations cards so much that we wanted them to become a major part of the Zpoc2 experience, so we moved them into the core game.

Yay Beans - The KS promised that everyone’s favorite promo card, Yay Beans, would be in the expansion. With all the work being done to overhaul the art and design, it ended up not making it in. We apologize to anyone disappointed by the lack of beans, and will do our best to make it up to you by including Yay Beans as a part of the first batch of downloadable content.

I want to end by directing your attention to a running Q & A we’ve put together for rules clarifications: http://www.greenbriergames.com/gne/featured_item/zpocalypse-2-defend-the-burbs/#FAQ

We really appreciate all the excellent feedback we’ve received thus far on the rule book, and will be putting out a v1.1 revision with (or before) the aforementioned first DLC pdf.

Thank you all for being part of this community with us. We look forward to continuing to work with you to make Defend the Burbs the best it can be.

Best wishes,

Walter

Update #38

Quick update on shipping.

Today we found out the US cargo has passed inspection. That means next week the cargo will hopefully be trucked over to our shipping warehouse. It's getting closer.

Meanwhile, stop by for a demo of Defend the Burbs at PAX East! We're at booth 3013.

Enjoy your weekend,

Update #37

Shipping Update and New Video

Hey guys

Thank you for being patient with us as we sort out the recent shipping debacle. We have good new and bad news in this update.

Bad news first: Zpocalypse 2: Defend the Burbs is currently being kept in US custom's equivalent of jail. The shipment is still being held for intensive scan. To add insult to injury, not only are they not telling us when the games will be released, but they're charging us a hefty fee for holding on to them. It is an extremely unfortunate circumstance, and we're praying for a swift resolve. We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience. We don't have any more info to share at the moment, but we'll keep you posted as soon as we do.

Good news: EU shipping as officially begun. We just got word from out new EU fulfillment partners that packages have begun going out the door as of today. Huzzah! We'll do our best to share tracking information directly to you as soon as it becomes available to us.

We're still waiting to hear back on the status of the AU shipments leaving the facility, but we'll post another brief update when we get word.

Also, check out this new promo trailer for Defend the Burbs:

 

That's all for today. We'll be in touch soon! Until then, happy gaming.

Best wishes,

Greenbrier Games.

Update #35

2017 Coming In Hot!

Hey guys

Thanks for all the patience on the update hiatus; once all the proofs for Defend the Burbs were officially approved and in the hands of our manufacturer, we've had our heads down and our fingers glued to the keyboard on Folklore: The Affliction. We're making awesome progress in that battle, but we want to quickly touch base with you guys and give you an update on the status of Defend the Burbs.

As of just the other day, we have received a tentative sailing schedule from China. Barring any unforeseen boat trouble (an ill timed iceberg, for instance) we are still on target to deliver Defend the Burbs to you guys in Q1 this next year. We don't want to celebrate prematurely, but as of now it looks like we beat the clock on completing production before Chinese New Year!

Also, here is a new picture of the squad minis - one color for each player at the table.



  

As 2016 comes to a close, we are now just a few short months from getting this game in your hands, and we couldn't be more excited. We'll post another update in January when we have more shipping info to share with you all.

Happy New Year everyone!

Best wishes,

Greenbrier Games
