Product UPDATES

Here is a list of all our products (crowdfunding and pre-orders) and their statuses, including the completed ones.

Note: if you are a backer of a project, you should be getting all updates via email; if you are not, please ensure your related crowdfunding account is assigned to your correct email address. Also, ensure the related crowdfunding platform's domain is whitelisted in your email inbox.

Pre-Orders

Buddy Cop

Current Status (Oct 2023)

All games have been produced and are in the factory's warehouse in Ningbo, China. Currently, the orders are on pause and have not continued being sent out since mid-December. To be clear, this is not EasyShip's issue, rather orders are shipped through their third party partner in Hong Kong.

At long last, we have come up with a reasonable plan of action with a publisher and are currently working with them to freight our inventory back to Ningbo, China (the previous solution to Guangzhou, China didn't work because of import/export restrictions) where the publisher will pick up and boat freight the our products with their own, then to their warehouses for fulfillment. 

We will begin moving our inventory from Hong Kong to Ningbo, China the middle of this month. Once there the publisher will give us a pickup schedule to update you with, which should be the same month unless they tell us differently. (Note: This publisher will also be shipping/fulfilling Contra: The Board Game).

In the meantime, if there are address changes to anyone who has not yet received this order, please send us an e-mail to:

addresschange@blacklistgamesllc.com

Please make sure that your subject line says "BUDDY COP ADDRESS CHANGE". Keep in mind that this e-mail will only provide customer service to address changes, in order to ensure that all of these are made. Any other questions/comments will be deleted from this e-mail at the end of the day.

Because this delay has been frustrating experience and an issue on our part, besides a solution, we are offering a small token of thanks with these pre-orders that have not yet been fulfilled (what this is, will be announced soon). This will be something that is not available for mass retail purchase and exclusive to you.

Crowdfunding
DireAlliance.png

Dire Alliance Campaign

Current Status (Oct 2023)

All the items from the campaign have been produced, manufactured, and palletized. They have been ready for pick up at our factory overseas but we have been unsuccessful at arranging freight pick up and a boat schedule.​

Entering > Freight Phase

We have established a complete quote from our new fulfillment partner and are now raising funds needed to take care of freight and global fulfillment. While we are doing so, we have reached out to other publishers who we are in talks with to help or to offer options that can get us closer to that goal but all of them for different reasons, completely backed out.

We have one more publisher available who is interested, though we are currently negotiating terms. 

In the meantime, since we have no sales/income I am seeking other solutions to raise the funds necessary for fullifllment. For example, an idea I started planning for in August, was to create a campaign to sell over 50+ unused STL files we have and already created from various projects. Since they were digital rewards, upon the conclusion of the short campaign, all pledges would be fulfilled right away and 100% of all proceeds would go towards the fulfillment of Dire Alliance. Unfortunately Gamefound rejected our pre-approval submission in September so that option is out.

 

I am also presenting a couple of deals with logistic companies and will see if that gives us any options as well.

Fantasy Minis: Series 2 / Lasting Tales

Current Status (Oct 2023)

All of the miniature sculpts have been created and files have been submitted to the factory. The Lasting Tales book has already been released as a PDF to backers who pledged for the tier that applies. During the release we opened to backers the opportunity to help us with any minor and final proofreading edits we missed. Now that it's closed, all printed material is finalized and has been submitted to the factory. 

Entering > Miniatures Engineering/Red Wax/PU Phases

We have just received the final PU samples from the factory, meaning that all Red Wax and PU samples of the miniatures are now complete. 

 

Printed items (Lasting Tales book and accessories) will begin digital and physical proofing in September while T1 samples will begin works as well.

Note: The new update for Lasting Tales/FS2 is delayed as we are waiting for the digital proofs of all the printed material from the factory. The factory has left for their National Holiday (for one week) and will return on October 8th/9th. We will have an update following the receiving of those digital proofs.

Street Masters/Street Masters: Tide of the Dragon

Current Status (Oct 2023)

All the items from the campaign have been produced, manufactured, and palletized. They have been ready for pick up at our factory overseas but we have been unsuccessful at arranging freight pick up and a boat schedule.​

Entering > Freight Phase

We have just secured a deal with a large publisher to enter fulfillment. They are determining their internal plans on how to schedule fulfillment and will follow with an official press statement for us to release as our own update, to be posted simultaneously with them.

 

Per their request, we will be awaiting those details before posting anything on Indiegogo or in the comments, to ensure their message is clear and there is no confusion with this process. The publisher is aware that backers are anxiously awaiting news and it is very apparent that the longer it takes them to write it, the worse the optics are. However, they know this update is extremely important and they want to have an exact fulfillment plan ready for once that update is posted so there isn't incubation or additional waiting time to fulfill the games. 

Right now, all address changes have been submitted to the publisher and they are working with their chosen fulfillment hub to format all backer data. That is all I know thus far.

 

It is important to note that BLG is not able to post any update until then as it might not be the message or correct information the publisher wants to announce.

(Note: this is a different publisher than the one who will be assisting with the shipping/fulfillment of Buddy Cop and Contra: The Board Game).
