We have a few exciting updates we wanted to share with you all.  We're happy to report that all the Sideshow Swap! Producer Editions have been mailed, and hopefully we'll be seeing some pictures on social media soon.

We also have the First Tour playmats in.  They really help speed you through game setup and explain the rules as you're first getting accustomed to Sideshow Swap! Those pictured here are truly limited edition--once they're gone, they're gone.

I know you all were eagerly waiting for that special character that you unlocked, so I think it's time we introduced this fella... 

And our biggest piece of news, as far as this update goes, is that we have signed the paperwork to have our game manufactured by Panda Game Manufacturer (Feudum, Scythe, Trogdor!!, Pandemic, and other great games!) If you aren't familiar with them, they make stunning components. Nothing but the best for fans of the 'Show!

We will continue to share with you all the milestones as we achieve them, but the we are happy that there have been some really big accomplishments the past few weeks.

Hello Producers!

I'm happy to report that (almost) all of the Producer Editions of Sideshow Swap! are on their way to your doorsteps.  

There have been some exciting moments throughout the process of building a game, but putting the shipping labels on the boxes and watching them go to states such as Arizona, Texas, Connecticut, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and they even went as far away as Norway, was chief among them so far.  We can't wait to share our game with you.  

There are two blank fronts of Performer cards in the package.  This is intentional--feel free to use them as you see fit.  We had such a great time creating this game, we wanted to give you an opportunity to sketch up a new character. But don't worry, the game that you received has the full cast, so you can play it right away.

We're continuing along as expected with the retail version of the game, which you will also receive when it's ready.  Stay posted, we will have an update to all backers with plenty of pictures shortly!

Thanks again,

Adam and Phil

Hey everyone - we have some exciting updates.  The final components of the Producer Editions will be here this week.  They look amazing.  We've been working on getting the final files prepped for our main first run.  Some of you have been asking about the survey, and we're all signed up with BackerKit, so you will be getting that sometime in July.  We want to accommodate any address changes as easily as possible.

Our schedule looks as predicted, and we're excited to get all of our backers their copy of Sideshow Swap! as soon as possible.  Keep an eye on our Facebook this week, as we will post some pictures of the components.

As we enter our final 24 hours, we want to thank you for your support and pledges - you continue to amaze us! Since we wouldn't have been able to make Sideshow Swap! without you all, we are going to have some fun and ensure that all first printings of the game are going to be special. Speaking of which, and did you notice that you've just unlocked the $13k goal with some exclusive First Tour tickets? How about for $14k, we add a special pair of Now Playing! tickets as well? Let's make sure this campaign goes out in a blaze of glory!

With all the Sideshow Swap! love,
