The First Copies Ship to Our Kickstarter Backers and Pre-Orders

We spent most of Saturday packaging and boxing up the first group of games, loaded up the truck and then gave the employees at the Post Office a mountain of parcels.  If you’re a Kickstarter backer or a pre-order, we’ll be emailing you when your copy(ies) ship.  And we’ll be mailing more and more games out through the rest of the week.


Tower of Mob Ties

Lots and lots of copies of Mob Ties… why not build a tower?



Receiving the Games and Unboxing

A few photos from our receipt of the games over the weekend and the subsequent unboxing.







Mob Ties Available at Essen/Spiel 2011

Though we probably will not be able to attend the Internationale Spieltage SPIEL 2011 in Essen, Germany, Mob Ties will be available for purchase at the convention.  Our German distributor, Brave New World, will have copies in Hall 6, Booth 111.  If you would like to reserve a copy,  please send your name and info to Carsten at  He can make the necessary arrangements so that you can ensure a copy will be waiting for you at Essen.  If you will be attending Essen and plan to purchase or play Mob Ties, please contact us.  We’d love to have pictures/video of Mob Ties being played at Essen, and we’d love to know what you think about the game.  And, as always, thank you all so much for your support and interest.  Mob Ties is finally here…

Finally… The First Copies Arrive

Well, the first couple of copies arrived and we couldn’t be happier.  We’ve waited and waited and waited, and now they’re finally here.  I’ve posted numerous pcitures below (I apologize for the photo quality… we’ll be posting some more professional, higher quality photos later in the week).  The full first print run is being shipped and will arrive late next week prior to October 15th, and as soon as they are received we’ll begin shipping out games to our Kickstarter backers and pre-orders.
