From Our Studio to Your Table
Each game goes through many steps on the path from our fevered imaginations to your gaming table.
The game is on its way from Z-Man Games to distributors and retail stores. This can take between seven and ten days for the U.S., and a few days longer for Canada.
On the Boat
The game is traveling from the printer to our warehouse. This can take between four to six weeks, depending on where the printer is located.
At the Printer
The game is at the manufacturer. Printing time depends on the product. A small game might only take a month or two, while a game with a lot of components—cards, dice, tokens, game boards, etc—may require many months.
The game is undergoing design and development. The game developer works with graphic design and production, as well as in-house and external playtest groups. Everyone works hard to make sure the game is as good as possible before it goes off to the printer.
