End to an awesome campaign, now the work begins.
First of all, a huge thank to everyone who supported this project, from the smallest pledge to the largest, from our backers from our last campaign and our newest supporters. Welcome if you are new, brought before, come from Kickstarter, the UKGames Expo, or heard from a friend, you all now have yourself a beautiful looking calendar that you can solve and enjoy during the countdown to Christmas.
Thank you to all the backers who spread the word, the last 2 days have been a boom, we have now had the most backers that we have ever had! That’s awesome!
It is the end of a campaign and now starts the manufacturing. It's all hands on deck to get these into production now. We aim to ship these at the end of October to get to you by the beginning of December, we will be in touch with further updates on production.
Now, we will be sending out surveys to all our backers to collect addresses to be delivered too. This will happen in the next two weeks and we will send an update for when we send them so you can check your email addresses.
We are with Backerkit again this year to handle our pledge manager add ons and new pre order page coming soon.
So if you didn't manage to get one in the campaign you can get them from our pre order store.
We have also added another Add-on to our store. The Puzzle-A-Day calendar from DragonFjord, ( It was a popular request) where you must try to make today's date using all the pieces of the puzzle. A great gift for someone if you enjoy our Escape calendars already. We offered to our Backers last year and it was a huge hit so we are offering it to you again.( Now in wooden and acrylic design.)
In the next two weeks, BackerKit will begin collecting funds from you. Now is a great time to check and make sure your payment details are all up-to-date. If payments fail, it could cancel your pledge and you won't get your yummy calendars, so please check before it becomes an issue, we don't want you to be disappointed.
Email addresses that go to ‘icloud’ or an apple account, always seem to have trouble with Kickstarter emails and messages. If your Kickstarter account is under this type of email please check spam folders.
We will be in touch shortly.
Thank you again for your support, keep puzzling.
Would these interest you?

Only a couple of days left of the campaign. We hope you are as excited as we are.
Since we produce advent calendars and we like puzzles, we have coordinated with DragonFjord who produce Puzzle A Day calendars. We usually sell these on our website nearer Christmas, however is this something that would interest our backers. Would you like these as an add-on to your order? They would be £15 with very little shipping as they weigh hardly a thing and can be applied to inside your mailer packaging when we ship your rewards. If you would like to see these added to BackerKit at the end of the campaign, let us know in the comments below.
UK Games Expo
While at the UK Gaming Expo, We noticed the Escape Room / Puzzle Games genre is starting to appear more and more in the gaming world. We would just like to mention a few we saw (and may have purchased) at the expo that might interest our backers. We are not getting anything for this, we just feel that we should spread the love. Here are some links that might be of interest.
The Detective Society
If you enjoy puzzles and you enjoy narrative storytelling, then check out the Detective Society’s new campaign too.
Using some new technology and great props, Detective Society has created an immersive world of intrigue and discovery. They have about one week left on their new storyline, ‘Murder on the Moon,’ and you can pledge for any of their previous adventures including their new family style game.
Smart Games - Small, travel size games for improving strategy and thinking skill.
Thank you again for your support.

Thanks to all of our backers for your incredible support, we have surpassed all expectations for this project and achieved something truly remarkable.
We welcome our new backers from the UK Games Expo. Thank you to everyone, previous backers and newcomers who chatted with us and played our demos. It was an awesome time.
There is only a week to go till the end of the campaign. We are overwhelmed by all of your support and messages of encouragement. We now kindly request to like and share about the calendars as much as possible. Please spread the word to your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues and encourage them to join the community. Backers are getting the best value by pledging now.
We are immensely grateful for your support in this project.
Thank you again.

Thank you so much!!!
Holy moly, it has been 24 hours and we have surpassed our funding goal, thank you so much for backing this project!
We are overjoyed to see so many people who have played our calendars returning to buy our new themes. This has been the largest number of backers we have ever had in 24 hours. That is incredible! We will be in touch with every backer personally in the next couple of days.
We are seeing previous backers return and seeing new backers finding us for the first time. We are so pleased that the word is spreading. Your support not only helps us make this project possible but also gives us the motivation to push further and make new designs that hopefully you will love for the future.
Your enthusiasm in this project helps us reach more people who may be interested in joining our community. Every mention, share, and recommendation from you helps us gain visibility and creates more opportunities for success.
Please like and share your interest with these calendars wherever you can, tell your friends, tell your neighbours, it all helps. If you keep liking them, we will keep making them.
Thank you again to everyone who has backed us already and got us over (and above) the funding line.
Funded and Stretch goal?
We didn't expect it to be that fast! Within 3 hours and we were funded. That's incredible! The early birds went by very fast.
We have some requests for extended Early Birds and we will have to look into putting a 24-hour early bird next time.
For the stretch goals, as mentioned in the campaign, we do not want to stretch ourselves too. We have a few ideas for an extra flat calendar; however, this one is only partially finished. It could be added to the rewards without any extra cost to shipping, (as it is flat.) We will get back to you on this as we are working out timings and logistics as we do not want to offer something we won’t be able to finish.
We will be in touch soon with updates on news, events and surveys.
