August 18, 2020: Fall Schedule Changes
Despite our best efforts, the COVID-19 situation is playing havoc with some of our upcoming releases, and we have been forced to adjust our plans for the remainder of 2020. Our New Releases page has been updated to reflect our current manufacturing and shipping reality, and the result is a reduced release schedule for the final months of the year. (With luck, this will not have a significant negative impact on our cash flow.)
The biggest schedule change has been to our new dice bags and dice sets, several of which have now slid into 2021. There are many reasons for the delays, all outside of our hands, and we made the decision to spread out the releases over the next eight or so months rather than try to cram everything into November. (In addition to unavoidable troubles on the manufacturing front, freight times and costs are a bit of a mess at the moment, so we're focusing on keeping the evergreen titles in stock while new releases slide down on the priority list. Everything affected by the changes has been at print for months now, so please don't think that our creative team is in any way responsible for the delays. They have done an amazing job of adapting to a work-from-home approach to producing new titles.)
For the current (expected) schedule, please see this section of our website. Retailers, please feel free to email me directly if you would like to discuss our release schedule and if you're looking for information on any of the upcoming games, dice, and accessories.
