I am extremely excited to announce the production has finished and the cartons have left the factory and have moved onto the shipping stage! Production took a little longer then I expected. I had baked in a month for production when I really should have baked in two months. It will take an estimated 30-40 days for the decks to arrive in California via shipping container. Meanwhile, as I'm sure you are all aware, there's been a huge delay in global fulfillment and shipping, so hopefully it doesn't affect us too much. That being said, I am sad to estimate...

Welcome back to the Goracle! I didn't think I'd have anything new for you to see until November, but I was wrong. I got some more production photos and they look great! Production is nearly done. I'm also inquiring on additional shipping charges to see if I can get 25% of the production shipped via air to bypass the crazy logistics delays troubling all boat cargo. Hopefully it won't break the bank and will it will be feasible.   Meanwhile, here's are the photos! Despite the fact that the Chinese factories always seem to send the worst photos, these still...

Yay! All elements of design are finished! Now I'm just reviewing everything 3x before I send the approval for production off to the manufacturer. Meanwhile, the mats and the postcards are currently In Production. Regarding the box, I am really happy with how it came out. It's much simpler than the design I had in the kickstarter video, but still shows off the violence and dread of the cards within. I think it is enticing enough without giving anything away. Let me know your thoughts on the digital mockup: To see the full print file that the manufacturer will be...

Hello Goracle fans! I've basically finished the manual. All that's left to do is: Replace the digital mockup of the coin with a photo of the coin sample Replace the digital mockup of the die with a photo of the die sample Wait for the backers who purchased the Acknowledgements add-on to tell me exactly how they'd like their name to appear Otherwise, it's good to go! I've proofread it twice already, but I would love your feedback. Please review it and let me know if you have any questions about it. You can download/view the pdf here. Meanwhile, the reading...
