Hi there! Everything arrived and it looks great! So excited to play! I noticed the rulebook references a non-lethal mode competitor sheet but I don't see it in my digital or printed materials. Did I just miss it mixed in amongst all the awesome? Is it coming later?

Hello! Really enjoying reading through the digital version of the game, pumped for running it soon. Can't wait till my physical copy arrives. I know we missed the last stretch goal that would have included NPC cards. There was chat at the time of maybe releasing them as a PDF at some point. Has any more thought been given to that?

Got the physical book, when are we getting the final PDFs? (will the Survival Kit be available somewhere?)

The game just arrived—wow did you all deliver in quality! Probably the best quality hardcover I've recieved in an rpg, bravo. Congrats to the team, just a fantastic job on print quality, page quality, paperstock, etc. I am going through my checklist, I've backed the Survival Kit pledge, and I am actually missing the 'Survival Kit upgrade' package, here is what I am missing: • "Survival Kit Upgrade" Color Catalog • Deathmatch Island Sticker • Deck of 20+ NPC Cards • Leader/Pause cards I *think* that is all I am missing and will go back over everything. Thanks for any help on this, can't stress how cool this game looks/feels. Great job! ~ seth

Just so you know, the first 13 pages have subtle bumps in them, like it was slightly pushed in a bit. I don't need a replacement copy but I thought you should know of the defect.

PROJECT UPDATE

Project Update: Time to update addresses: Shipping about to begin!

A quick update today: Book production is finished and fulfillment will begin shipping late next week.

If you need to update your address, do it now. Head to https://deathmatch-island.backerkit.com/

We will be sending all the backer data to our fulfillment house on Monday morning. Make sure your book goes to the right home by doublechecking your address.

We've locked orders and shipping has been charged. Our fulfillment partner usually takes a couple of days to spin up their process, so our best estimate is that games will start heading out the door late next week.

Depending on the complexity of your order and your proximity to Duluth, MN, rewards could arrive as early as the first week of April. If that changes, we'll be sure to let you know here.

We're pleased to announce that we're well ahead of our estimated delivery date and we can't wait for you to get Deathmatch Island to your table.

PROJECT UPDATE

Project Update: Progress Update, plus: Preview of the Full Survival Kit!

Greetings Contestants, nothing but good news in this update. We'll start with a production update.

Printing of the books (both the standard and limited edition) is nearly complete. We expect to transfer them to our fulfillment house next week and begin prepping for fulfillment shortly thereafter.

That means if you have any updates to your order, payment info, or address, now is a great time to make them!

Head to https://deathmatch-island.backerkit.com/ and you can manage all of that info.

If you have friends who missed the campaign, there is still time for them to pledge and have their order included with our crowdfunding fulfillment. Send them to https://deathmatch-island.backerkit.com/survey_stores

Besides the progress on the books, we've now taken delivery of the final Survival Kit materials. This set of play aids is based off material you'll find in the game but bundled up and printed separately for you to share more easily at your game table.

If you are located in the US or one of the other countries where we are shipping physical rewards, you still have time to add them on to your pledge.

Let's take a look!

The Official Dossier of extras, Production Guidance booklet, Competitor Induction booklet, and three Island booklets


The full contents of the Official Dossier laid out: Cast Pages, Island maps, Deathmatch Island Beans label, Play to Win tear-off pad, Phase Two diagram, Welcome letter, Intimate Conversation Prompts page, Content Risk Assessment form, Motivation cards, Competitor Registration forms (character sheets) plus the Competitor Induction booklet, Production Guidance booklet, and three Island booklets.


These materials are packaged in a 6" x 9" format to fit neatly alongside your book and will be shipped as a shrink-wrapped bundle so none of the components go missing. Play to Win© even harder with the Deathmatch Island Survival Kit!

Production is winding down and fulfillment will be gearing up soon. If all the estimates hold, we'll begin sending out books in April rather than our original targeted delivery of June.

Stay tuned, Competitors. The next Phase will begin shortly.
