Latest Updates from Our Project:

Fulfillment to begin soon! (Also- I need info from Japan and S. Korea backers!)
7 days ago – Wed, Aug 03, 2022 at 12:09:50 PM

Greetings friends,

Twin Palms is nearly ready to fulfill. It looks like international backers may receive their copies a week or two before US backers since our service Send From China already has the units in stock and ready to ship. The bulk of the units have landed in the US port, and are now being unloaded and sent to our warehouse.

I was informed by our international shipping service that some additional information is needed from our Japanese and S. Korean backers. I’ve already reached out to you all individually, but just in case those messages slipped by, I’ll repeat it here.

BACKERS FROM KOREA - Please provide me with:

  • Your personal customs clearance code (Format: P+12 digital numbers). For more information, see here.
     
  • Your NAME and ADDRESS written in Korean characters.
     

BACKERS FROM JAPAN - Please provide me with:

  • Your NAME written in Japanese characters

Not long now folks! Stay tuned for more fulfillment updates.

Manufacturing Underway
about 1 month ago – Fri, Jul 08, 2022 at 12:02:51 AM

Summer is here! Hope everyone is able to soak in some sun and spend a day at the beach!

Manufacturing for Twin Palms is nearly complete, and we’ve been sent a mass production prototype to review. Below are some photos we took while reviewing the prototype. Overall, we are quite pleased with how everything came out, and we are excited to get it into your hands!

Our original plan was to start fulfilling the games in October. However, it looks like things are actually moving faster than we anticipated, so we are now expecting fulfillment to start much earlier than that! We’ll post an update when we know exactly how much earlier, but needless to say this is great news.

If you can’t wait to start playing Twin Palms, then feel free to jump into a game on Board Game Arena. We were recently featured on July 3rd as part of their Summer Games of 2022!

That's all for now, but look forward to more updates soon!

Pledge Manager closing May 20
3 months ago – Tue, May 17, 2022 at 11:40:11 PM

Hello friends,

By now, all of you should have received your survey emails. Most of you have completed it (thank you!), but we still have a few stragglers. As a reminder: these surveys allow us to collect your shipping fee and lock in your shipping address. If you don't complete it, we can't fulfill your order! 

We will be closing the Pledge Manager on May 20th. 

If you want to make any last minute adjustments (additional copies for gifting, adding or subtracting add-ons, change of address), do so now: https://twinpalms.backerkit.com/

Our factory recently sent us proofs of the print files, and everything checked out! We are right on schedule and expect mass production to start in June.

All the best,

Charlie Bink

Surveys Are Coming!
4 months ago – Mon, Apr 11, 2022 at 03:48:24 AM

Soon, you’ll receive an email from us with a special link to your BackerKit survey. It’s important to respond to your survey as quickly as you can since we need this information to fulfill your rewards.

You don’t need to create a BackerKit account to fill out your survey. When you receive the email with the survey, click the survey link to respond. Provide your shipping information. You'll then be prompted to pay your shipping fees for all items (remember folks, we did not collect shipping during the campaign).

This example of a BackerKit survey shows a USA customer who pledged for a single copy of Twin Palms. Notice that their balance is $5, which is the USA shipping fee.

 You don’t have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email. After you respond to your survey, you can go back later and change your responses at any time before we close the surveys and get our final counts.

"What if I need to change my address later?" - If you need to review your information, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at https://twinpalms.backerkit.com

If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you prefer to use, please contact support at https://twinpalms.backerkit.com/faq

All the best,

Charlie Bink

A Big Thanks To All!
5 months ago – Tue, Mar 22, 2022 at 01:10:23 AM

That's a wrap folks! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 28 days since we pushed the launch button on the Twin Palms Kickstarter. I never could have imagined how much stress and energy would go into running a campaign! It's been an amazing learning experience and I’m so thankful to all the wonderful people I’ve met along the way who helped make this a reality! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

What’s next?
We will be preparing our backer survey using BackerKit and expect to send it out once all the Kickstarter funds clear (in roughly two weeks). What is a backer survey you ask? This is an email that will direct you to a kind of “check out” window on the BackerKit website. Here, you will confirm your shipping address and pay your final shipping fees. We will send another update beforehand to give everyone a heads up so the survey isn't lost in your inbox.

Thanks again to each and every one of you!!!
