Hi friends!

Now that the Lost in the Shuffle kickstarted campaign is a tremendous success, I've been polishing up some of the card art. The plan is to order the massive print run before the end of the year and I'm currently on track to hit that goal.

I've prepared a little sneak peak at the beta-test design of the jokers vs. the current version. Please don't strain yourself too hard looking for puzzles though as I've tastefully hidden all the good puzzly stuff.

The new versions of the jokers look so freaking cool! I didn't draw them, which is how I'm able to be so impartial :)

I also just had a in-depth chat with one of the game's reviewers, Matthew Stein of Room Escape Artist. It was a lovely chat with a lovely man and he gave me some excellent suggestions on some fine tuning that should be a real "chef's kiss" situation for several puzzles. And if you didn't know it, Matthew is a wonderful puzzle designer and you should click here to see all the sweet stuff he's made!

Well, that's going to wrap up this update. More to come in the next few weeks. Y'all get home safe.

Yours Puzzly

With the help 487 absolute legends (that's you) the campaign has concluded with 222% funding!

"What happens next?" I'm glad you asked!

Backers of pledge levels with personalized cards should be on the lookout for a questionnaire sent out next week asking for what name(s) to use for the card(s).

The actual survey for finalizing your shipping address and cost won't be coming at you until March or April. Till then I aim to keep everyone apprised of developments with bi-weekly updates containing minimal "yo mama" jokes.

If you have and questions or comments or suggestions please do send them to me directly at spencer@spencerispuzzling.com

In the meantime, my next goal is to get these decks printing ASAP as possible (sorry, ruining acronyms like that makes me LOL out loud)! More on that in the next update!

Thank you all so much!!!

I hope you like exclusive enamel pins, cause everyone's getting exclusive enamel pins :)

I know one person in particular who will be very excited by this news, but I'm not even going to mention Angela's name since I don't want to call anyone out.

We're coming up on the final 48 hours of the campaign and at this point it feels like more of a victory lap than the home stretch. Thanks again for all the support and encouragement. Also thanks, as well as thanks.

Thankful Doofus

If you're in the mood for a lavish treat for your ears, the magnificent Zach and Jared (pictured below) have a released a fresh and tasty new episode of the Puzzling Company Podcast! I'll give you two guesses which puzzle game they're talking about in this episode :)

You can find it here on Apple Podcasts, or here on Spotify if that's more your thing.

Also, thanks again to everyone who has backed already! It's starting to look like the one and only stretch goal is going to be met! I don't want to jinx it though so I'm gonna go knock on a bunch of wood.

You owe it to yourself to check out Dislocation: Meckanical Puzzle Box by the ever-so-sneaky Martin Raynsford (pictured below).

Look how sneaky

See if you can figure out why the beginning of their Kickstarter video fills me with delight :)
