Hello Epic Upzone Backers,
Upzone is out of the shipping queue! Upzone is loading or has already been loaded onto Ships and is hitting the seas to continue its journey to your door to our fulfillment centers worldwide! (Miniature Market in USA and Green Fulfillment in Poland. It will be shipping from VFI for asia/pacific as well.)
Freight and Shipping Timeline:
Early August ---> Arrive at the port. From here transportation will be secured and then loaded to make its way to Fulfillment.
Late August ---> Arrive at Fulfilment center for inventory and prep.
Early September---> Arrive at your door. (Worldwide!)
This is the timeline for ALL Fulfillment Centers.
Once Upzone arrives at port, and then arrives at our Fulfillment Centers we will update again and let everyone know keeping you informed at every major checkpoint!
Gen Con and Essen Game Conventions
We are hoping to have Upzone in hand for Gen Con, however, freight delays made that impossible. However, we will have samples to show off! So definitely come visit us! :D
We will have Upzone in hand for sale at Essen Spiel! All backers should have theirs in hand before then as well!
A Little Help from Backers with Freight Costs (Optional)
We at Everything Epic are a small company with a Big Heart. We have worked hard in doing what is best for our backers and for Upzone as a product.
Such as: better printing quality, shipping materials, foam in boxes to protect your product, and longer sampling and testing times, again to get you the best possible quality product we can!
While this results in some delays and higher costs, and with horrible freight costs worldwide, unlike some Kickstarter Campaigns, we made the decision as a company to pay these costs ourselves, and NOT Require an Upcharge to all backers for the higher than normal shipping costs. As a small company, this is a hard burden to bear, but we're doing our best to do that, even though it really hurts our much needed profits, which pay our amazing design team, and support our company and future products as well!
We're not requiring, but we are humbly asking you Backers for any assistance towards shipping you'd like to give. If anyone would like to help us offset the shipping cost, we would really appreciate it.
It is not required and you are not obligated if you're unable or uninterested.
We will get you your amazing Upzone Terrain ASAP no matter what you choose!
However, if you would like to help you can send any amount to us via Paypal below.

A donation of $10-20 dollars or more offsets the actual cost per zone it's costing us to freight these items overseas from China to USA, EU, AU and around the world.
Normal Shipping Containers are about 10k, Current Shipping Containers about 18-26k each (And we have 4 Containers of Upzone Going Worldwide!)
Any help you'd like to give is much appreciated. If every backer sent 10-20 dollars, it would cover the overage on 3 containers to offset our costs. Again, thank you so much for all of your support and we can't wait to get Upzone into your hands!
