We want to thank everyone again for participating in this year's design contest. We doubled the amount of kits sold, and had almost double the amount of prototypes come back! So thank you!

The return of prototypes will begin to happen next week. We will start to ship anything with return labels out. We will also begin emailing your $5.00 coupons out next week too!

As a reminder the top 5 games will be shipped over and shown to HABA Germany. From there, they will either continue through development, or be returned. The prizes for the top 5 will go out next week as well.
