Well dang, I was in the middle of moving when I got the letter and had it packed away for awhile. Oh well, thanks anyway for the info!

@Zackary Collins Hi! Yes, you are a bit late :) Our apologies, but the Xmas gift was disactivated 2 months ago (app). We will send you a small compensation, you will find a Historial Documents Challenge (quite similar to Xmas gift) inside your box!

Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

Ok I know I'm crazy late but I'm just getting around to trying the Christmas letter and am stumped. I don't see anything to use the zapper app on an am wondering if I'm missing a page. I have 3 pages. One with the 3D printed snowflake attached, one that says Merry Christmas on the top, and one that says Main Riddle at the top. Am I missing a page, or just an obvious clue to something?

@Wiktor Kozak Hi, The content of PDF pledge is part of the Enigma Box global game, we will start sending them at the same time as the boxes. It would spoil the game if we sent them earlier, so we hope you understand and thank you for your patience! The Enigma Box Team

@Peter Hi, We are experiencing a minor delay caused by one of our providers but we are aiming to deliver the boxes in the last week of June. Hopefully you will be back by then? If not, please give us instructions what to do, we could deliver your box to a different address or deliver it to you at a later date. Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

@Caragorn Hi!

Actually, the main point in that riddle isn't the text at all, the important and relevant part is about the colours, shapes etc 😉 Hemos intentado que en el juego el idioma no sea relevante. Gracias por tu confianza. Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

Qué ganas de que me llegue la caja deluxe! El otro día pasé por delante de vuestra tienda de Moncloa. La reconocí por el rombo :) A ver si voy con mi familia para hacer un scape.
Quería saber si vais a traducir también este tipo de textos:

Review from Kickstarter
@ensis1981 Thanks for the comments, we really appreciate your constructive feedback, there is always room for improvement. We are not perfect 😉 Those examples of scenes were our first version of 360 (put together 2 moths ago), they weren't of the best quality, but we had to publish them to give backers some visual ideas about the project. Since then we have polished the 360 scenarios and they do look better. Our Apps (Android & iOS) have been sent to App Stores and we are waiting for approbation. Just to add, we have already manufactured the boxes' structure we are very happy with the results. Very soon we will be publishing a new update with pictures and info. Once again, thanks for your comments and help, very much appreciated! The Enigma Box Team

Hi,
we agree because we understood well the direction of the project and I happy about it! Nothing to say about the quality of the 360° scenes.. our criticism (intended as a constructive one) are all about the "raw" integration of the puzzle elements that seem in contrast with the beauty of the 360° scenery! Is very simple to smooth the puzzle/clue/object's images to fit them as "part of the scenery" with a little photoshop editing. SPOILER: For example: the five clock on the little bridge, they seem to float around without any sense.. you could resolve this by fixing the clock against a wall to make them more credible and apply some little shadow in the outline; or again, the 3 letters (PLS) under the statue on the bridge are instead better implemented in the scenery than the cat,goose,squirrel at the bottom of the fountain (that's we're talking about when we said "made with Paint by a children" ), or the many keys on the wall in the hallway, with some few filter and color correction they can seem A LOT more realistic and integrated in the background!!! Hoping we explained a little better this time. Thanks for the clarification anyway, and keep it up with your good work!!

Review from Kickstarter
@ensis1981 Hi!

We are using a specific 360 software to create different scenarios in the game, not the Paint software (it would be impossible to do it!) and we published only examples of the scenarios (you will have a better integration in the App). Bear in mind that “The Enigma Box” is a Board game with many riddles, technologies (augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D printing, NFC Chips, etc.) and numerous different objects. Virtual Reality is only a part , not the game itself, We are not designing and programming a HTC or Oculus game, we are designing a game experience that uses 360 scenarios to enrich the way you play.

Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

Hi,
me and some other backer have a concern: the overall quality of the VR scenes showed as example.. well, do they represent the quality of the final product? Or you had show us them before the proper graphic editing of the puzzle's elements in the scene? It just our opinion that they seem "done by amateurish at most, or children in some cases", like they're made with a cut and paste from Winows95's Paint software? Thanks

@Peter Hi! As you can see in our last update our delivery time has changed to June. This minor delay is caused by one of our providers (3D figures) therefore we had to postpone delivery until next month. All our other providers are keeping their deadlines, and with no delays from our side, we are pretty confident that we will start delivering the boxes in June. Thanks and apologies for this inconvenience. The Enigma Box Team

Review from Kickstarter
If it’s not all finished yet and you don’t have all the parts, are you still going to be delivered in May? It a month to get everything finished, testing and shipped around the world. Seems a tight deadline

Everything is going fine on our side, no major delays. We started receiving some elements of the box from our manufacturers, some of them still need a few more days/weeks to arrive. We will publish a more detailed update on the progress in a few days. Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

Thank you! I was already looking forward to the expansions... 😉 a bit ahead of time, I know.
The Enigma Box
Review from Kickstarter
@Wesley van der Vaart Yes, you are correct. The extensions are not ready yet, we are hoping to launch them (along with some extra new ideas) in October. All our focus has been going to the box so it can be finished and delivered on time to all our backers and we will update the progress report in a couple of days. Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

Review from Kickstarter
@Sul-Karshak I am really sorry to hear you are not happy with the French translation. Being honest we had so little time to prepare and deliver Christmas gift and we chose the translator who turned out to be not very good. Our mistake, apologies. We are going to contract another, professional translator to deal with the box text to avoid further problems. We will do our best to deliver a perfect French version! Once again we apologize for this issue. Thanks, The Enigma Box team

Review from Kickstarter
I've finished the christmas gift and it was very pleasant to solve, but I'm also worried about the translation. I've received the french version and it wasn't very professional. there were missing words, typo and syntax errors... Did some french native people read your work?
I'm hopping it was only because of the rush for the christmas gift, but can you assure me that the translation will be better for the enigma box?

Review from Kickstarter
@Dyna, I finished the Christmas gift puzzle, but cannot send message to other backers thru this, You can ask a question on BGG (what is your username there?) https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/239982/enigma-box , then can chat about it there.

@id342 Hi,

Right now we are working on all creativities , App, Virtual reality scenarios, augmented reality objects, etc. We will begin to print them in April.

In our next update (2 weeks time) we will publish digital formats of some final creative components , a VR scenario (part of it as we don’t want to reveal the VR places), and an AR object , all that to give you some idea about the whole progress.

Thanks, The Enigma Box Team

@id342 Hi!

Roughly every 3 weeks we will post a status update to keep you informed on the overall progress. We are going to do the first status update on Wednesday 14th. At the moment we are working on the most complex part of the project: the virtual reality scenarios, augmented reality objects and App (Android and iOS). Our pace is pretty good, no delays. At the same time we are in touch with our manufacturers, double checking all measurements, materials and the whole productions process.

Thanks, The Enigma Box Team
