​When ordering, please note:

  1. Personal Communication: In addition to standard Shopify messages, you will get a personal email from me giving details of your order, resources for getting started or integrating your expansions, and a direct connection to me to get any questions answered.

  2. Changes in the current 4th Printing: There are no gameplay changes!! These are not new editions, just new printings.

  3. Useful Box: Regular retail Useful Boxes are no longer available. The remaining limited inventory is being reserved for owners of the 2020 printing of Obsession, Wessex and/or Upstairs, Downstairs. These are available for 2020 game owners only by contacting Dan Hallagan at hallagan@kayentapublishing.com. The solo and promo content of the Useful Box will be made available in the future. In the interim, a Print and Play PDF file of the solo content from the Useful Box has been made available HERE.

Worldwide Distribution

U.S. Retail: Pre-Orders began August 1st with projected shipping to begin in the 1st week of September. Pre-Orders are being used to elevate the full batch of pre-orders to a PROJECT level for the warehouse. Without pre-orders, games could be delayed for weeks due to the size of the routine daily orders. 


Be aware that overseas shipping is unpredictable, and there could be delays. You will receive a confirmation email within 2 days of your order and update emails as necessary as you wait for shipment. Shipping Bonus: On 9/1, shipping rates will increase to reflect skyrocketing shipping and fuel rates, but all pre-orders will be at current rates (20% less).
