Hey There Fellow Thieves!!
This is it. This is the update we have been wanting to send for two years. You have been with us through all sorts of shenanigans. Now it all pays off.
Are You Ready?
We just got word. The Game. Has. SHIPPED! It’s headed out of the warehouses and to locations around the world! We’ve heard already it’s been received in the United Kingdom and Denmark! Feel free to send us a picture when you receive it. We can’t wait to see them!
If you have any trouble receiving your game, or it is damaged in any way please reach out by email: Sparrgames@blackbox.support
Blackbox guarantees shipment within 10 days. That means that everyone should have their games no later than the 23rd!
We’re finally bringing the Museum to you!

Backer Export / Shipment Update

– Mon, Oct 09, 2017 at 10:28:48 PM
Hey There Fellow Thieves!
It’s about to happen. Long time coming to this point, but here we are! This is the final stretch! So let’s get right to it:
Thank you for all who reached out for corrections and changes. It’s been a while since this whole thing started and a lot of life has happened in the interim, that means a lot of people got to update their addresses. We were able to update your Backerkit surveys and get everything organized.
Due to the number of changes, we did allow a few extra days to ensure everyone had time to get to us. Thus, it took a bit longer than we had expected to get the shipping information out to Blackbox. That said, everything is all set. Blackbox guarantees shipment within 10 days from this point.
They will let us know the moment the games start going out. You'll hear it here first! We're not expecting it to take the full 10 days as all of our product has already been checked in.
Thanks again, everyone.
HERE WE GO!

We’ve made it! Hooray! After everything we’ve been through we are finally stateside. The shipments have arrived at the warehouses and look great! We are going to export all backer into quickly following this update, and then shipment can start!
Where we’ve been
We want to thank you all for sticking with us as long as you have! We are deeply grateful for your unending support. Our backers, you have been white knuckling the roller coaster right along with us.
Where we are
Blackbox has the games. They’ve opened the crates and started sorting them. We got a few pictures from them to get an inside look at that process. But mostly as proof. Let’s not be disingenuous, you want photographic evidence.
Where we’re headed
** Last call for address changes **
We want to take one last moment to make sure everyone has their correct shipping info. This is the last call for changes, so drop us an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). We want to get backer info to Blackbox by Oct. 3rd.
The timeline has since shifted a few weeks, and here is our update as of right now.
BlackBox fulfillment: October 6–13
We're double checking these dates with Blackbox currently. Depending on the shipment times, we are confident everything will be on your doorstep shortly after. All backer tiers should be completely fulfilled by the end of Oct.
October is Master Thief month for us!
THANK YOU ALL.

Quick update / reminder today.
In the last update we relayed that the completed games should have left shore somewhere between July 14-17. However, it looks like the schedules didn't work out in our favor this time around. We've been assured that the shipments will go out this week, and we should know for certain by Wednesday.
This being said, the prospective timeline from the last update has been changed.
- Product departure from China: August 1 – 4
- BackerKit survey lockdown: August 1
- Product delivery to BlackBox: Late August – Early September
- BlackBox fulfillment: Early – Mid September
Backer Kit Surveys
We were relieved to see a lot of you digging back into your surveys to make corrections. Like we said, we want to be sure no one is left behind or taken by surprise here. Our plan to lock down surveys on August 1 is still active.
There is still ONE more day to make changes to your shipping and billing info. For those who decided to add-on to their pledge, we want to repeat our message from the last update.
If you decided to add-on any additional items (poster, t-shirts, etc.) BackerKit has NOT charged your cards yet. We want to emphasize this, as some billing info may need to be changed in order to complete your requests.
Cards will be charged on the date of survey lockdown (August 1)
Surveys will be locked and loaded at 11:59PM EST tomorrow.
We hope to come back to you this week with the news that the games are on the way to their respective warehouses. Any questions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
