Recently, we were scheduling a container of games that was planned to leave the factory in late April. As of today, the container still hasn't been loaded on a ship and the soonest possible shipping date is late this month. Worse still, that container will cost us over 1.5x as much to ship as it did before the pandemic. As I said, "driven costs up." Unfortunately, that particular container was only the tip of an unwanted iceberg.
This week, while working on yet another container, we were given a sailing choice that has no guarantees as to when it will ship – for over 2x what we used to pay for a container. Of course, that container hasn't expanded by over 2x in size, so we simply are paying more per unit for ocean freight than we once did. We can handle the expense better than we can the delays, but the current freight costs and times are not sustainable and we need to examine our retail prices as well as build even more time into our production and shipping schedules.
And now it is almost time to review the costs and estimated delivery schedule for yet another container . . .

Warehouse 23 News: Munchkin Dice Bag!
Only a munchkin would bring more than a couple sets of dice to a game day. Fortunately, we cater to munchkins! This fancy, satin-lined, 7-inch square Munchkin Dice Bag will hold all the dice you need for every possible situation: good dice, bad dice, or even probationary dice! Order now on Warehouse 23!
In other April news, mailing the Hexagram #6 Kickstarter rewards officially moved that project onto the sales reports, and two of the new titles for The Fantasy Trip made it into our top ten for April. Another Kickstarter project, the Illuminated Manuscript, also managed to climb into the top ten, as if to demonstrate the importance of maintaining both a traditional release model and creating titles specifically for a crowdfunding channel.
- Munchkin Deluxe
- Zombie Dice
- Munchkin 6 - Double Dungeons
- Munchkin Enhancers
- Dice Bag: Munchkin
- Hexagram #6
- Munchkin 4 - The Need For Steed
- Illuminated Manuscript
- The Fantasy Trip Old School Monsters

The bundle includes Illuminati, the first two expansions each in a plastic Pocket Box, a ziplock bag expansion, and two 9" x 12" pocket folders featuring classic Illuminati artwork.
We're not sure how long the remaining copies will last, but we do know that it's basically now or never to add the bundle to your collection. When they're gone, they're gone for . . . years? Decades? We don't know for sure!

Sean, Steven, and Nikki have been pulling the strings and coordinating our efforts behind-the-scenes, getting another dozen short GURPS PDFs prepared so that later this year we can launch a new project where as little as $3 secures you up to 12 PDFs. (As with last year's campaign, the exact count will depend entirely on how many stretch goals are unlocked.)
If you don't want to miss out on the upcoming campaign, please follow the Warehouse 23 Kickstarter account today. You'll receive email notification when we launch the campaign under that account later this year.

Warehouse 23 News: So Many Minis!
With Ogre Miniatures Set 1 and Set 2, our warehouse is overflowing with miniatures! And if those aren't enough for you, check out the Ogre Battle Box. Head over to Warehouse 23 to pick up some miniatures today!
My first contact with the hobby game industry was falling hard for the Illuminati: New World Order CCG (although I had also played a lot of Illuminati before then). Through INWO, I met the team at Steve Jackson Games, worked my first convention booth with the staff (showing off this new game called Munchkin), and even got playtest credits on a few things before I joined Mayfair Games for a 13-year career.
After that adventure, Steve Jackson Games offered me a job handling their events, and we got to see our first company-specific convention (FnordCon), our first independent sales booths at Origins and Gen Con in over 20 years, and one of the industry's first virtual conventions last April. I've shown a lot of people the new Car Wars, played a few games that have yet to see the light of day, and even contributed an article to the recently-released Illuminated Manuscript.
Now, I'm moving on to become the Chief of Operations at AMIGO Games here in the US, but part of my heart will always be with Steve and the team in Austin, who have kept the eye in the pyramid glowing brightly for over 40 years. Thanks for the opportunity, and I'm still up for a game of Car Wars when next we meet at a convention!
