So for context, If they only sent out 1000 sets of encounters 1-6 at 29lbs per box, that is 29,000lbs of dwarvenite or close to 15 tons of material!!! That is a LOT of product. With close to 3000 backers, the number of TONS of this stuff is staggering.

Next waves will start in late June, some of the containers are already on the water. Priority is getting North America Encounters 1-6 clear of the warehouse first, later orders will be grouped to ship as efficiently as possible.

I know, this last bit of waiting is the hardest part.

Hopefully we'll see an International shipping update soon. Somewhat ironic thing is since those orders are being held until production is complete but will ship from China (and don't have to go to US East coast first) some of you will probably be seeing later Encounters and addons before US backers do.

Much to unpack here, well apart from any actual dwarvenite!

I will say this - trying to comfort myself- waiting for DoD is MARGINALLY easier than waiting for Cities and Castles. With those, until I had them in hand I wasn't entirely sure how they worked and what it would be like to work with them.
Looked to us like you worked out castles pretty quick, your builds helped us get through the wait of getting our castle at the backend of fulfilment, so many thanks for that :).

DoD is so much easier to see how it can be used - big advantage over Cities and Castles.

NO WAY!!!

KS V is WAAAAYYYYY more exciting than cities or castles
YES WAY

To be fair castles are so much more our thing than dungeons, totally love everyones enthusiasm for DoD, DF got it right to go back underground.

Got my shipping notice finally! Or at least the notice that they're packing it up in the next few days. Can't wait.

No notifications yet. Wondering if they're working through orders with painted first...

HAHAHHAHAHA! To be clear, this one isn't less EXCITING -- it's just less of an unknown mechanic. I know exactly how I can use these and how the sets work. I had a lot more questions about how the Cities and Castles worked, and needed to see them in hand to work it all out.

Waaaaah! Nothing for me yet.

I will say this - trying to comfort myself- waiting for DoD is MARGINALLY easier than waiting for Cities and Castles. With those, until I had them in hand I wasn't entirely sure how they worked and what it would be like to work with them. DF explained it all well enough, but until you do it yourself it's still a bit ambiguous. I was just barely able to breathe waiting for the opportunity to sort through it all and see what I could do.

With DoD, it's different. It looks super amazing, but the basic mechanic is old school DF. I have the same excitement over it, but not the same need for answers. So I can be a SMIDGE more patient.
