Important shipping update: Do we have your current address??

Games are on the move! Do we have your address?
Our games are sailing the high seas on the way to the U.S.A.! This means we are about to lock in your orders on BackerKit, so consider this your last chance to change your order. About 30 of you have paid us for games but not updated their address in BackerKit! This means we cannot ship to you. If you received a notification from BackerKit in your email today, it's critical you click the link to give us your address. Your orders will lock on Friday, so make sure your information is up to date and correct.
Shipping Date Update
There was a very short delay due to a backup of shipping vessels at the port, so some of you will not receive your game in June. We're really sorry about this, but it was beyond our control. The games are en route and will be arriving on the west coast on or about 6/25. However, our distributor needs to intake, process, and ship it out to all of you, and all this takes time. This means the very first games may arrive by our original June deadline, but others will certainly receive it in early July. Please accept our apologies for the delay, but rest assured your games are on the way.

Major A.S.S. News!
In this update:
- Printing is now complete. What comes next?
- Shipping update: We're still on track for June
- New Hosted Experience dates added
Read on for more.
We have a printed game
Today we're incredibly excited to tell all you dedicated A.S.S. fans: the game is printed! We have fresh copies of Anti-Social Skills games, Even More NSFW Editions, and 2020: Year of the A.S.S. limited edition expansions for all of our backers.
So what comes next?
Our games are now being loaded onto pallets and prepared for an overseas transit where they will arrive at our distribution partner's warehouse in California. This should take 30-40 days. From there, your rewards will be mailed out to you and come right to your door. This should get you your completed games within the June timeframe we expected, barring any unforeseen shipping delays. Note that things do happen in transit, for instance another cargo freighter could jackknife in the Suez Cannel. Hopefully nothing like that will happen to us, but anything is possible. If there are any delays, we will let you know ASAP what to expect.
IMPORTANT: In order to ship to you, we need your address! If you haven't filled out your backerkit survey, please do so right away so we can get your address. You'll also have the opportunity to purchase add-ons for your game.
New Hosted Experience dates added
I recently went into our calend.ly account and added a slew of new Hosted Experience dates for May and June. If you have not booked yours yet, now is the perfect time to do so! You should have the link in your inbox already if you are a Hosted Experience backer. Please get in touch if you need the link again.
If you didn't back at the Hosted Experience level but you would like Jon to play with you and your friends, you can still order a Hosted Experience on our preorder store.
Very exciting time to be an A.S.S. fan!
Until next time,
We've got physical proofs!

Look what came in the mail...
Oh, I wonder what's inside...
Physical proofs of Antil-Social Skills!
This is the last quality control check before the final game is produced and shipped. There will be some differences in the final version (the corners will be rounded and the card stock will be thinner; the 2020 deck box will also be smaller). We are really happy with the quality, especially of the beautiful box for the main game!
Inside, there is a cardboard insert that can be removed to make room for your add-ons and expansions.
Take a look! *NOTE: The last image is fairly NSFW*

What's New With Anti-Social Skills, March Edition
Things are moving along briskly over here at A.S.S. HQ. We've been working on some secret stuff we can't talk about yet, but here's what we can tell you:
1. We have ordered physical proofs of the game which should be arriving soon! When they do we will share the first images with you so you can see what the physical cards really look like.
2. The first Hosted Experiences have begun! If you are in the Hosted Experience or Plus tier make sure to follow the calend.ly link we emailed to you and pick a date before the times that work for your group are all sold out!
And as always, if you don't want to wait for your physical copy, take advantage of your free membership to ASSkills.com and play online with your friends and family right away.
Until next time, stay safe and keep laughing!
Manufacturing, Hosted Experiences, and More

Here's what we've been up to since the last time you heard from us!
We've been working furiously making the game a reality over the past several weeks.
In this update:
- Manufacturing news
- Hosted experience scheduling
- Free premium web content for backers
- How you can help
The files are at the manufacturer
After an intense period of joke writing, editing, play testing, double and triple checking, the final print files are now with the manufacturer, and we have received and approved digital proofs! That means the manufacturer can begin printing as soon as we reach the front of their queue. We are so excited to get the physical copies out to you all, I can hardly type this. The boxes and cards that our graphic designer created look incredible, and will really pop on your shelf, and the cards are absolutely hilarious. Our in-person play test bubbles couldn't stop laughing, especially when doing the challenges. We can't wait to get it out into the world.
We are booking Hosted Experiences!
If you are one of the backers who was lucky enough to get one of our Hosted Experience packages, you should have received an email from me with a link to a Calend.ly scheduler. The first ones begin this week! If you have not had the chance to book yet, make sure you do it soon because slots are limited and we really want you to get the time and day that works best for your group. If you have any problems booking a time, please reach out.
Didn't get a Hosted Experience but want to play on Zoom with our comics? You can book your own at our pre-order store.
Don't forget to sign up for free website access...
As a backer, you already have access to all of our website content for FREE. You should have received a special link that lets you sign up at absolutely no charge. If you haven't received it, please get in touch! In addition to an online interface with all of the cards, you also receive access to our private Discord community where you can talk to other players and organize games.
Please spread the word to your friends about our game! The best way of doing this is playing with your friends on Zoom. Anyone, even non-backers, can get a free month of our website by using the special code FREE_MONTH. And anyone who actually buys a physical copy of the game on our store will get instant free access. Every person who plays it really helps us spread the good word, so if you can, invite some new people to the Anti-Social Skills family.
Until next time, stay safe and stay Anti-Social!
