I will have new stuffs for the Non Essen fair:
Clinic Deluxe Extension #4: I have skipped Clinic Deluxe Extension #2 and Clinic Deluxe Extension #3 because the Covid19 has disrupted our play testings and are requiring more games to be balances.
That's why I have decided to release the last Deluxe Extension in the series!
Tramways Tile Expansion Packs: I add a new expansion that will add more variety to the building of your city during the setting phase with this release of 46 New Tiles! I have added nice big Clinic Tile with special abilities...
I have asked Sampo Sikiö, the graphic designer of Clinic 1st Edition to design the missing components to have a 4th Medical Dossier for the fans of the first hour who did not want to purchase Clinic Deluxe Edition, who DO not want to purchase Clinic Deluxe Extension #4, but HAVE NOT all the components now. So Medical Dossier #4 will contain ALL SGs unlocked during the big KS Campaign in 2019 and ALL components of Clinic Deluxe Extension #4, all cut and handled with scissors and hands like in 2014-2016!
And I think that should be enough for 2020 !
Thank you for your support
As you know, since the opening of the website, I have paid a particular attention to the shipping costs, and most, for not saying all items, have inexpensive shipping costs.
Since 2016, I have never increased any shipping fees. With the new Trump Administration policies and the Covid19 pandemic, my shipping fees have increased by 120% since 2016. I am now not able to maintain the 2016 shipping costs. I would like to apologize on this but I will increase few shipping costs to cover 50-80% of my real costs. Customers and fans won't be charged 100% of my real shipping costs because they are supporting my work when you are directly ordering the games and extension on my site.
Hope you will understand that the pandemic has put everyone in a very bad position... Hope new year would be a better one for the shipping costs...
Few more news during the Summer and the pandemic:
- the shop is still open and you can freely order as there is no pandemic on the Earth. Some delays have been increased a lot, but all orders arrive if the shipping address is correct. The most difficult area to reach it South America now, but we cross the fingers and we really hope the situation will become smoother very very soon.
- we just get in our warehouse the Covid19 extension and we are now in the fulfillment phase. I have imported the excel files from most of the rewards of the KS campaign, but I will start with the Vaccins, the Pasteur and the Jonas levels. Some backers in Europe should also get their Hospital levels, but they will be very few and lucky. The time delivery is September for this campaign. I am adding a flyer with a 10% discount, so be careful when you open the cardboard envelope !!!
- we also get all stuffs for Pulp Detective 3, the player mats and the crazy Collector box that we have called slip cases. They all look good and perfect. We plan to start the shipping of these items Mid September, when you have finished the Covid19 extension fulfillment.
- About Pulp Invasion, our second game in the Pulps Series, all files have been sent to the manufacturer (64 files!), I would like to thank Todd Sanders who made a crazy job. He is very efficient and very flexible. I know him for 7 years now and I have never been disappointed by his job, always ready to help. He will run a great campaign to publish new books and I will share the link with you when it will be public very soon.
- We are thinking to release some stuffs for the Virtual Essen fair, more news when we know more. May be a Clinic Extension 4, that would be fun to do because we do not have any Clinic Extension 2 neither 3...
