Special Edition Box Update + Photos

I’ve been asked so many questions about the Special Edition Box since it was announced, and even more in the last few weeks.

As some of you already know, I’ve been stalling while trying to find away around a huge road block: The box is flipping huge. Regardless of how little it weighs, the physical dimensions makes it very expensive to ship. To make matters worse, COVID has jacked up prices everywhere.

I’ve exhausted every available avenue. At the volume we’re printing at, there is just no way we can get it to you at a reasonable price.

To give you an idea, the absolute cheapest price I’ve been able to find is $55 USD shipping to the USA (other countries are even higher). That is an insane amount of money to pay no matter how much you love Mothership (and that is in addition to the price of the box).

So that means…the Special Edition Box will have to be shelved…for now.

I’m sorry for dangling it in front of you for so long!

But, does that mean you will never have an opportunity ever again to get the entire game in one box with fancy trays? Well…not necessarily…

Production Update

Pre-production (the time spent finalising files and artwork) finished at the end of June. The next step is creating a sample. That’s what the manufacturer has been working on since July 1st.

The sample is basically exactly what the game will look like in the final copies sent out to everyone. I expected the sample to completed by now, but there has been a delay caused by…ME.

Currently, the games are sitting in a warehouse in China and are awaiting the fulfilment team’s instructions.
