Hello Loyal Agents,
We received some inconclusive photos from the factory of the latest round of dice, but they looked close enough to accurate to warrant seeing the dice in person. Now that we have the dice in hand, we feel confident the factory can get the colors right on the next go around. The biggest time sink between iterations to date has been the necessity of re-creating the die mold for the Warehouse dice to correct the mirrored 1.
These are the two most recent iterations of the Warehouse dice. While they have fixed the mold, the overall quality of the die has taken a big step backward. We have been going back and forth with the factory to determine the cause and hopefully rectify it quickly.
Because the mold is done, we anticipate having meaningful news sooner rather than later. As before, they are unwilling to give us an updated timeline until we give final approval on the dice. We can't give final approval until the dice are in compliance with the color and quality that NBC/Universal dictates.
As always, once we have more meaningful information to pass on, we will do so.
Thanks for your patience and support!

Hey loyal Agents,
As you know, we are in a holding pattern, waiting for the dice supplier to reopen in a couple weeks. In the meantime, we've just learned that Eddie McClintock will be interviewed tomorrow at 1pm PST on the BoardgameCorner channel on Caffeine.tv. Not only are we certain that Warehouse 13: The Board Game will come up as one of many topics in their conversation, but our own Shawn Smith will be present in the chat to field any game specific questions that may arise. Eddie has been an instrumental supporter of our project for years, and we hope you can listen in to his interview with Mark tomorrow.
Happy Chinese New Year

Hey loyal Agents,
The most recent round of dice samples is closer on several colors, but still not quite right. The 1 is still mirrored on the Warehouse die. Plus, our factory's dice supplier shuts down for 3 weeks due to CNY. We won't hear anything new from them until at least 2/17.
Not having the game out yet is frustrating on many levels. To name a few... It's eating away at our licensing time with NBC/Universal. It's keeping us from selling copies at conventions and directly to customers. There are tax implications. The delay has tied up our finances, prohibiting us from moving on to other projects. The cost of shipping has not gone down during the delay. And finally, it's professionally embarrassing and just plain rude to you Backers who've patiently waited so long already.
We understand and share your frustration. We will continue to push for speed and quality. We will let you know as soon as we know something new.

Hey Loyal Agents,
Word out of the factory is that the next round of dice samples will ship out Jan 19th, which will put them in our hands a few days later. They remain silent regarding our production timeline until the samples are approved.
Over the weekend of Jan 25th, we will be attending Rocket City Gamefest in Huntsville, AL (https://www.rocketcitygamefest.com). We will bring the newest version of the game we have at the time we leave, which will in all likelihood be the copy mentioned above. Hope you can join us for a chat, a demo, or a full playthrough. Just look for someone wearing a Warehouse13: The Board Game t-shirt.
If you want to brush up on the rules ahead of time, here's our 11-minute video manual, so you can be like Pete and skip reading it (http://tiny.cc/w13rules).
We'll let you know more as soon as we know more.
The Greatest Gift

Greetings Loyal Agents!
"The Greatest Gift" is one of our all time favorite episodes. Pete, erased from everyone's memory, has to rebuild the Warehouse family in a pressure cooker situation that sort of distills the entire TV show into a single episode. This year, as an early gift, Santa brought us the newest pre-production copy of the game. Have a close look, because these samples more or less distill our entire production process into a single photo!
You are looking at final production versions of the Warehouse dice covers, which look great and function perfectly with the dice made from the final production molds. The worst of the dice problems have been resolved! Unfortunately, new problems have been introduced with those odd colors and that mirrored 1.
We pinged the factory immediately on December 14th asking what kind of delay this represents, but have not heard back from them with any substantive information. We continue to go back and forth with them, but they are unwilling to give a firm schedule.
When we know more, you will hear from us ASAP. Thank you for your continued support and patience. We wish you and your personal team of Agents the very warmest of holiday greetings!
