Hey all,

Just a quick update to let you know that we had a few delays getting the final items together but that orders have started shipping and they should all be sent out by tomorrow, which means that USA orders should still arrive before Christmas (international orders will take longer, unfortunately). You should receive an email confirmation with tracking info once your order is shipped.

Thanks so much and happy holidays!


One more thing: Neptune launch date + FREE 8-deck set!
9 months ago – Tue, Aug 28, 2018 at 09:26:50 PM

I know I said the previous update was the final one but I wanted to make sure that nobody misses the final campaign of this series. Neptune will launch this coming Sunday, September 2nd at 3pm PST. There will be some very exciting announcements made throughout the campaign so be sure to come check it out! In the meantime, you can check out the campaign preview.

Also, make sure to enter the Vanda contest to win a FREE set of all 8 decks (SE)!

Note: If you backed a tier that includes a complete set of planets decks, you will be able to add on any of the extra goodies through BackerKit after the Neptune campaign ends.

See you on Sunday!

Thanks! -David

Good news: LE decks now shipping!

Hello my patient friends,

I'm happy to announce that the Mercury LE decks are finally shipping! They will be en route either today or tomorrow and USA backers should receive an email with tracking information. The decks for international backers have been sent to Keen Hong where they will then be dispersed to all of you even-more-patient people.

Again, I apologize for the extended delay and hope that you'll find the results to be worth the wait.

In other news, the Venus decks are being assembled currently (including LE decks) and I expect them to be shipping in a couple weeks and the Earth decks won't be far behind!

Thank you all for your support and enjoy these wonderful Mercury decks! -David

Update: LE decks
about 1 year ago – Wed, Apr 18, 2018 at 12:54:36 AM

Hey guys,

Please don't shoot me—there's one more delay on getting the LE deck orders shipped out. I just heard that the LE decks were inadvertently cello wrapped without their seals so they're carefully unwrapping, sealing, and rewrapping right now.

Fortunately, Mercury's retrograde just ended so I'm hoping there won't be any further communication problems from this point forward. As of now, the rewrapped decks should be completed later this week and fulfillment will commence next week. I'll post any new information as soon as I have it.

Thank you once again for your ongoing patience...this entire process has been as frustrating for me as for you and I promise you won't be disappointed with the final results.

The good news is that now that we've tackled a number of issues with the Mercury deck, the rest of the series should go much smoother. In fact, I already have tuckboxes printed for Venus, Earth, and Mars, and the other 4 planet boxes will be done soon. And the Venus and Earth decks have already been completed by USPC and Mars is on the production schedule so we're way ahead of timeline for the future!
