The following images are what were sent to us from the manufacturer, as they printed their first edition of Outlander: The Series -- The Board Game.
The picture quality is a little fuzzy, but it is our first glimpse of how things look on their end. Next, of course, is sending us a completely packaged copy for us to hold in our hands and approve.
You'll notice that the components here are just the printed ones: from the box to the cards. What's missing are the non-printed parts, specifically the Meeples and Wit cubes. Apparently there has been some difficulty colour matching my precious Wee Jamie. I can't be surprised by that. All of my Meeples that we've been using for our home-printed prototype were hand-painted by me. I had to play around with a few blends to get the bronzed effect I wanted. And I'm quite fond of Wee Jamie as he is, so I am going to be watching very closely to see how he looks when he pops off the assembly line. Fingers crossed that he is as bronzed and beautiful as I have dared to imagine him.
The countdown is on for the physical prototype, and you can bet that I'll be posting the HELL out of that unboxing!
