Team Yankee Quick Reference Sheet

Numerous people asked for a handy printable version of the quick reference sheet from the back of the Team Yankee rulebook. So we have made a PDF version in a few different formats for you to download and print out, and perhaps have it laminated.

Tanksgiving Sale Shipping Update

Tanksgiving Sale Shipping Update

The warehouses have been receiving their shipments of Tanksgiving stock and busily unpacking it all. Right now the priority of the warehouse teams is to get all of these orders out the door as fast as possible (over 300 shipped out from the US alone today).

There may be a few orders that will ship out missing an item or two (where stock as been used for Customer Service issues or other problems). We have already alerted the Factory to these and we have an extra shipment leaving the factory shortly to finish off all the orders completely.

Thanks again for hanging in there, folks - it's coming!
