Keep track of the ships!

Hi everyone, how's everyone doing?

We bet all of you will be better after reading this update! We know for sure all vessels have left their port: yay!!!

We know how eager our supporters are to follow the vessels' status, so without further ado here are the names:

  • Asia: we reached our Asian partner VFI and they haven't got back at us about the games' shipment, yet. Though we need to take into consideration the terrible circumstances of this awful disease which is affecting all the Chinese territory lately. When we know more we will be sharing the information with you. In the meantime we all hope that the Coronavirus will be erased once and for all.
  • Australia+New Zealand: vessel's name is XIN FU ZHOU with final destination in Melbourne (AU).
Australia: Follow you games!
  • USA+Canada: vessel's name is MIRAMARIN with final destination in Tacoma (Washington state in the US).
US and Canada: track the ship!
  •  Europe: for convenience the games were split into two vessels instead of just one and their names are MSC DEILA and YM WELLBING. The destination port is Genoa and from there the games will be divided into 3 groups. One will be headed to Strasbourg (France) by our European partners Meeple Logistics, while another one will be handled by our partner Ecourier for the Italian Fulfillment.
First part of European games: follow the ship here!
Second part of the European games: track the vessel here!
  • Rest of the world: the games on this category were split between the European and Asian fulfillment centers. We will keep you posted.

Now you can finally have fun and track the ship that contains your games: enjoy!

Stay tuned and take a constant look at our Facebook Page, soon we will have a real juicy surprise for our Icaion supporters 😉

Latest on production and first shipping step!

Hi guys, how is everyone doing?

Here's a quick update to stay in the know. We are thrilled to announce that the production of Icaion is officially over and went as expected: aka great! See all photos below as reference!

Icaion mania!
All Mysthea Essential games wrapped up!

Tons of boxes!

The cargoes are almost ready!

Our Chinese factory and our forwarders are very close to arrange the booking of the ships for the cargoes' transportation. As soon as they give us further updates we will share them with you!

Additionally the Asian cargo, whose transportation will be handled by ground instead, will leave the factory after the oncoming Chinese New Year. In fact the Asian manufacturers will return fully operative after February 4th, when they will take care of the cargo.

As soon as we know more about the ships estimates and about the next phases we will let you know through an update, so stick with us ;)

Lockdown next week: Time to update your address

Hello, everyone!

Here's a quick update to keep you posted!

As we stated, recently we took care of locking all the orders. Now the next step ahead of us is to lock all the addresses. Next week we are going to export the whole information and we will hand it over to our fulfillment partners. This means that, if you need to change your shipping information, this is your last chance to update it.

The deadline to lock the addresses will be on December 6th at 6:00 pm cet. Please take into consideration that, after this date, we will hand the addresses to our fulfillment partners and this means we won't be able to change them anymore since they will no longer be under our control.

In order to change your shipping information you just need to go to your Icaion's survey on Backerkit, click "Edit Your Address" in the top right corner of the page and there you can type in your new address.

Here you will be able to change your address!

If, for any reason at all, you do believe that you are going to move in the upcoming months, we suggest to insert the address of a relative or a friend of yours just to be sure. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact our support team at support@tabula.games and they will help you out.

Pre-production samples are here!

We recently received the pre-production samples and we are very happy with how they turned out to be! Game Board, Player Boards, Event Board, tiles, all cardboard components look neat as expected!

Moreover, what we were also eager to unwrap, were the minis! They surely met our expectations and we absolutely love their details! 

As soon as we have more news we will of course keep you posted! In the meantime, a special treat: some photos of the components, so you can see with your eyes what we are referring to and how the components will look on your table! Enjoy and let us know what you think in the comments :)

We received the Miniatures samples, guys!!!

Pre-production minis!

Hello everyone!

Our factory just sent us the first pre-production miniature samples, and we couldn't wait to share them with you all, check them out!

We are using these to check on the detail preservation and any possible issues with the undercuts on the molds, allowing us to adjust some models in order to prevent any problem with the final miniatures.

All the miniatures are looking good, but some of these little fellas needed a couple of adjustments that are being done right now. We expect to receive new samples as soon as we update the models!

Everything is going smoothly and we are right on time with our initial estimates, actually we are a bit early that what we expected! ;)

The 2nd Edition of Barbarians: The Invasion is live on KS!

As some of you may already know, earlier this week we went live on Kickstarter with the Second Edition of our first big game "Barbarians: The Invasion". This campaign was born with the objective of upgrading and improving our first Kickstarter success, basing it on all the feedback we collected during these years from our backers. 

Discover the unique worker placement mechanic on the 3D rotating volcano!

To celebrate our first "second edition", we decided to offer to all our Returning Backers the new Mystic Set add-on entirely for free, and this includes all of you!

Check out the new campaign here if you are interested!

See you soon,


Last call for the Pledge Manager, a juicy work in progress and a surprise!
5 months ago – Thu, Sep 05, 2019 at 03:20:03 AM

Here's a preview of the trays design!

Hello everyone, how is everything going?

It has been a while now, but we have been working really hard on Icaion development.

With regards to this, we wanted to share with you a juicy work in progress of the two trays our 3D modeler has worked on! All your minis will have their own spot, allowing you to store them safely and neatly inside the box. We still need the factory's confirmation for the slots' shapes and dimensions, but we thought you would appreciate to see a preview!

We hope you like them, tell us what you think in the comments.

Have a look at this mockup of the trays!

On October 9th we will close the Pledge Manager!

Soon we will take care of the first phase of our post-campaign management: we will lock all the orders on Backerkit and charge the credit cards.

So, if you need to change your add-ons, switch your pledge level or adjust your payment information in the survey, we suggest to do it as soon as possible. The deadline for any modification of your order is October 9th at 13:00 CET. Please take into consideration that, after this date, it will no longer be possible to upgrade your pledge nor edit your add-ons. Passed that deadline, it will only possible to modify your shipping information.

If you have any issue or doubts about the survey, don’t hesitate to contact our support team at support@tabula.games and they will be happy to help you out!

The English deck has been unlocked really fast! 

Speaking of add-ons, we are really happy to say that you managed to unlock the Additional English decks with written text add-on in no time! 

For those who don't remember this, we stated that if we received at least 200 requests for this add-on, we would have reprinted it. Well, so far we counted more than 550 backers who added this to their order, so, as promised, we will reprint the Mysthea English decks: are you happy? :)

Remember that, as stated in our last update, if you are among those who have a €1 pledge, you won't have the chance to add any add-ons at all if you don't upgrade your pledge first. By choosing a pledge that contains at least one copy of Icaion you will then have access to all sorts of add-ons.

A special thanks to a special backer: Pawel Stróżyk! 

We don't know if you followed the comments section during the campaign, but we sure did!

When the campaign was live, your fellow backer Pawel Stróżyk showed us his passion for the Mysthea Universe by posting every once in a while parts of a story he came up with set in the world of Icaion.

We appreciated his creative spirit so much that we thought the least we could do was to release his work by giving it more of an Icaion look and allowing everyone to read his words!

Thus, give a round of applause to Pawel Stróżyk and enjoy "The Symbiote Seeker"

We will be in touch soon, so stay tuned!
