The Networks: Executives

Created by Gil Hova

So you’ve proven your worth in the past. We know you can run an ordinary TV network. Big deal. We have a bigger challenge for you. Here are 12 unique Network Executives, each with their own weird characteristics. Every Executive has powers, but they also have significant liabilities. Can you master each Executive’s idiosyncrasies, draft the best Season 0 cards, claim your true status as a Mogul, and come out on top? The Networks: Executives is an expansion to the hit board game The Networks. You must have the base game The Networks in order to play it.

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Shipping update: Canada in progress, Asia starting next week!
4 days ago – Sat, Oct 13, 2018 at 01:26:08 AM

Hi Networks backer, we're finally starting to wind down Executives shipping! I'm so glad you're starting to receive your games.

Here's the region-by-region update:

USA/UK/EU: If your game hasn't arrived by now and we aren't in touch yet, please message me!

Canada: Fulfillment should be in progress. If you don't receive your games by next Friday, please message me!

Asia: Our Chinese fulfiller is behind schedule; I guess last week's holiday didn't do us any favors! They should be able to start shipping our games out by the middle of next week.

Australia/NZ: Shipping is winding down. If you don't receive your games by next Wednesday, please message me!

Rest of Word: If your game hasn't arrived by now and we haven't been in touch, please message me!.

If your game has arrived, I have a few things to ask of you:

  • If there's anything missing or broken, please message me! I'll do everything I can to make it right.
  • Play the game! If I've done my job well, you'll want to play it again. :)
  • Rate the base game (if you haven't already) and the Executives expansion on BoardGameGeek! 
  • Talk about the game on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and any other online platforms you frequent.

And, if you'll be in Essen for SPIEL '18, come by and say hello! I'll be at booth 2E-102.

I'll post another update next week as we get closer to wrapping up fulfillment everywhere.

Thanks!

Shipping update: Australia/NZ fulfillment has begun!
13 days ago – Wed, Oct 03, 2018 at 11:43:58 PM

Hi folks, we're continuing to make progress with our fulfillment!

USA: We will hopefully have everything shipped out of the warehouse by early next week. It will take up to a week more for the packages to reach their destinations, but hopefully sooner! I'll send an update when everything is out of the warehouse and on its way.

UK/EU: If you have not yet received your game, it's likely in transit. If you don't get anything by October 12, message me and I'll have the fulfillers investigate.

Canada: Starlit tells me that they have the stock coming up from the border, possibly arriving as soon as tomorrow. We should be able to begin by early next week.

Asia: We are still waiting for the replacement Network Cards to arrive. This whole week is a national holiday in China, so the package is taking longer to be delivered than expected. I'm hoping we can begin early next week.

Australia/NZ: Shipping has begun! Allow a few days for the fulfiller to complete the fulfillment process, and for the packages to arrive.

Rest of Word: If you have not yet received your game, it's likely in transit. If you don't get anything by October 12, message me and I'll have the fulfillers investigate.

Thanks!

Final version of PNP uploaded (finally!)
15 days ago – Mon, Oct 01, 2018 at 05:29:49 PM

For my Print-and-Play backers:

I know this took forever, and my apologies to everyone who waited for so long. But I was finally able to upload the final version of the PNP! This is just for Executives; nothing else needs an update.

You should be able to use your existing download key to grab it; it's the same download key (from itch.io) that you received via BackerKit email when the PNPs were first sent out. So check your emails; you should be able to find it there.

If you can't find your download key, let me know and I'll message it to you.

Thanks!

Hi folks, here's where we stand with shipping:

USA: Shipping has begun! We should be done with all shipments by the end of next week; after that, it will be a few days until they get to their addresses.

UK/EU: Shipping is almost complete! Give a few more days for your games to arrive.

Canada: We should be able to begin shipping October 1.

Asia/Australia/NZ: Still looking like we begin shipping October 1.

Rest of Word: Shipping is almost complete! Give a few more days for your games to arrive.

I'll send out another update next week as I get more info.

Please comment as you get your games, and message me if you need anything.

Thanks everyone!

Executives shipping update!
25 days ago – Fri, Sep 21, 2018 at 02:25:41 PM

Hi Kickstarter backer!

We're so tantalizingly close to shipping! It's just a matter of making sure that all fulfillment centers have everything they need.

So here's where we stand. Note that these dates are estimates and not promises or guarantees!

USA: Should have all items Monday morning (Sept. 24). Should begin shipping next Tuesday or Wednesday.

UK/EU: Will have all items by next Thursday (Sept 27). Should start shipping by October 1, although it could be sooner.

Canada: Still getting tracking info, but should have everything by late next week, if not sooner. October 1 is a safe bet to start shipping, although it could be sooner.

Asia/Australia/NZ: October 1 is a safe bet to start shipping, although it could be sooner. It depends when all the items arrive at the fulfiller.

Rest of Word: Will have all items by next Thursday (Sept 27). Should start shipping by October 1, although it could be sooner.

I know that this fulfillment is going extremely slow, but I'm trying to be as methodical as I can. My fulfillment centers are using this time to pre-sort all the games they have, so they can get everything out the door as soon as they get the remaining items.

I appreciate how excited you are to receive your game. I'm excited to finally ship them out! I'll keep you updated as we start shipping.
