Mistborn Adventure Game: All Direct Orders have Shipped
« on: July 26, 2012, 09:41:16 AM »
As of this past Tuesday (July 24), all copies of the Mistborn Adventure Game ordered directly from Crafty Games have shipped and are on their way to their new homes. This includes all orders placed through Monday, July 23. Orders placed since then will be shipped next week, and we will be fulfilling all future orders within one week of their receipt (with Monday usually the cut-off for same-week shipments).

Some important details for direct order customers watching for their products...

  • Most domestic orders are placed via Media Mail, which USPS only guarantees within 8 business days. That said we frequently see much faster turnaround times, especially the closer you get to the U.S. west coast (from which the books were shipped).
  • Nearly all international orders are placed via First Class International, which on average takes about 2 weeks (though some areas are a little faster and some are a lot slower).

Of course, several shipping methods are available through our online store but we want to stress that these only speed your shipment up from the time it's put into the post (and again, we only ship once weekly).

Anyone with any questions regarding their direct orders should feel free to drop us a line at service@crafty-games.com but please consider the shipping dates and windows listed above before you do. Contacting us sooner than 8 business days for domestic orders, or sooner than 3-4 weeks for intenrational orders, will probably result in us asking you to contact us again if you don't see your products by the end of that time.

We also want to take this opportunity to remind everyone about our festivities at the upcoming Gen Con Indy, the Best Four Days in Gaming. Beyond having our entire catalog available for sale at our booth (#419, in the Studio 2 block), we're also hosting several special events throughout the weekend...

  • Brandon Sanderson Celebrity Roleplaying Event (Sunday 11am to 4pm at the JW Marriott, Room 304): Win a spot at a private RPG event in which Brandon Sanderson himself will be part of your crew! Every purchase at the Crafty Games booth through the show counts toward one or more raffle tickets, and we'll be announcing winners throughout the weekend.
  • Brandon Sanderson / Ben McSweeney Signing (Saturday 4:30pm to 6pm at the Crafty Games booth - #419 in the Studio 2 block): Come pick up a copy of the Mistborn Adventure Game and get it signed by the novel series author himself, along with the Mistborn concept artist and RPG cover and interior artist!
  • Ben McSweeney Signing (Friday 12pm to 1pm at the Crafty Games booth - #419 in the Studio 2 block): Ben has his own signing session as well, and there's talk of him bringing a little something special for those Mistborn and Fantasy Craft fans out there.
  • Crafty Games Declassified Seminar (Thursday, 3pm to 5pm at the Crowne Plaza, Pennsylvania Stn B): Join Alex Flagg and Patrick Kapera for this no-holds barred, town hall-style roundtable on all things Crafty, including the Mistborn Adventure Game and the forthcoming Spycraft Third Edition and Ten Thousand Bullets.
  • Ambush Product! That's right - we can't yet reveal just what we have waiting in the wings but we can confirm that we'll have a little something new at the show - something that you've never had the chance to purchase before, and which we think you'll all really dig.

Stay tuned to this site and/or our other feeds (shown at the end of this post) for more details as we lead up to the Best Four Days in Gaming!

Again, to those of you who've already supported us in this wondrous new endeavor, we thank you! Anyone who's been waiting for concrete news before ordering, or who's now intrigued enough to jump on board, can place an order at the following link...


There are three editions of the Mistborn Adventure Game...

  • The Deluxe Hardcover Edition is is available exclusively through Crafty Games. It features all the same contents as the softcover edition plus full-color endsheets displaying the Allomantic and (brand new) Feruchemical tables of metals, a stamped spine, and a beautiful, full-color dust jacket. It's the perfect addition to any Sanderson fan's bookshelf.
  • The Softcover Retail Edition will be available in book and hobby retailers worldwide, but you're also welcome to purchase it here. It features the same contents as the deluxe hardcover edition in a compact, easy-to-carry and use format. It's perfect for that gamer on the go!
  • The Digital Edition is currently available in PDF, with an EPUB version in the works. For one low cost you get the game in both formats, each with the same content as the softcover edition. You can also bundle the Digital Edition with either the Hardcover or Softcover Edition for just $5 more than the print book!

Based on the bestselling novels by Brandon Sanderson and powered by an all new story-driven rules system, the Mistborn Adventure Game lets you explore, command, or liberate the oppressed world of Scadrial, battle the Lord Rulerís Inquisitors, and master the primal forces of Allomancy, Feruchemy, and Hemalurgy. Itís the ultimate resource for fans of the novels and those who want to experience the Final Empire firsthand.

Just for future reference, what day of the week do you guys (usually) ship? Not to hold you to a specific day, but it might influence which day I place my future orders. ;)

We plan to ship on Tuesdays (next week will be the first weekly shipment now that we have the system down), and this is why we place the cut-off for same-week shipments on Mondays.  That said, we intentionally didn't include that information in the announcement and won't be including any similar information in future announcements because we expect that the day will have to move around based on travel, conventions, priority deadlines, and other factors.

Nice! I wasn't expecting them to arrive over there this soon, but I'm really glad at least one has.

Hopefully Skywalker's (and everyone else's) will arrive shortly as well.

Well maybe not stands out like a sore thumb but that is more due to the size of the collection and it still looks good to me ;)
