Wow, the response has been intense so far, and that is gratifying. We’ve had about an order every 90 minutes, and once we get some things worked out, we’ll be shipping a mess of copies to Europe wholesale. Our initial print run, happily, appears to have been way too conservative. We’ll be shipping a lot of games out Monday. If you still want an extra-fancy set, get on it.

Orders from France, Portugal, Sweden, the UK, Japan. International Roach love.

Things we’ve learned: We need to reduce unit costs for future production, and I know we can. Paypal – ouch! They sure get theirs. The hit we’re deliberately taking on international shipping is bigger than expected (but still worthwhile). Our wholesale price is a bit too low, but we can’t change it until we’ve honored our current commitments. Some other stuff I need to think about more. All told I feel really good about the game and our ability to share it.

    Dude, tell me about the Japan order. Is it Cameron Eeles, Mike Montesa, or someone else? (I’m still in JIGG, so I was curious so that I can encourage a Roach throw-down at the next meetup).

    Also, don’t ship mine, just bring it to the next gaming gathering.

    BTW, who was the first order filed after you announced it on Story Games? Just curious. :-)

    Way to wait ten minutes after we opened the store, dude. You are #1.
