What's Next?

Hey gang,

About 99% of you have received your orders and the remaining should be getting theirs soon. We have a couple things we want to update you on.

First, we've updated the PDFs in backerkit! 

You should see an e-mail from backerkit alerting you to the new downloads. This only affects the Player's Survival Guide, Warden's Operations Manual, and Shipbreaker's Toolkit. There were a few issues from our digital remediation that needed to be tweaked, but there are no new content updates.

Second, you've got new Digital Accessories!

You'll also receive a folder called Mothership Digital Accessories, which contains the character sheets, as well as (finally) the printable Warden's Screen (yay!). This printable file contains all the tables from the Deluxe Version of the Warden's Screen in a landscape letter-sized format. It's perfect for just printing and keeping with your or for as inserts for a customizable GM screen.

Third, Mothership releases to the wider public tomorrow, June 11, 2024.

It's hard to imagine, but this kickstarter really is just the beginning. It was a long road but the game is now in your hands both figuratively and literally. We could not have done this without all of you. We really appreciate your patience and support, it's been better than we ever could have imagined. 

So what's next? 

Well, there's five things you can do to support Mothership and make sure that there is a lot more to come.

1. Play the game! 

We made this game for you and we really put our heart and soul into it. Play with friends and family, with new friends at conventions or your friendly local gaming store.

2. Tell your friends! 

If you have anyone who missed out on the kickstarter (and its crazy up's and down's), now is the time to tell them about it. They can pick up a copy tomorrow at

3. Sign up to be notified for our next Mothership book: WAGES OF SIN. 

We'll be launching a brand new hardcover book all about bounty hunting in the Motherverse later this year. It's called WAGES OF SIN and it's got 100 bounties for you to track down across the galaxy along with all the tools you'll need to build a bounty hunting campaign. 

And even if you're not running a bounty hunting campaign we've got tons of guidance on how to put these bounties into your game as NPCs and factions. Written by the incredible Luke Gearing, this is going to be a book you'll want sitting right next to your Warden's Operations Manual. 

We've learned a lot from this kickstarter and we're ready to jump back in with a huge toolkit filled with tons of adventure. 

And not only that, but we'll be launching during an exciting new MOTHERSHIP MONTH. We have over a dozen third-party publishers who are going to launch with us, each with their own take on SPACE CRIME. We won't be launching until we're ready to print, so follow the link and follow along.

Get notified when we launch.

4. Leave us a review.

Now that you have the game in your hands, we'd love to know what you think. Some of you have left some really beautiful comments here and on social media, and many of you have given us some wonderful feedback on things you'd like to see in the future. If you're interested, we'd love for you to leave a review at the links below. It may not seem like much, but these reviews do a lot for our visibility online and they also help customers get to know the product and make a more informed decision.

5. Sign up for our newsletter.

We've got a lot more going on at Tuesday Knight Games. From our Werewolf in the Dark campaign (live now and about to unlock its last stretch goal), to more Mothership, to the fairytale horror RPG Fatherfog, there's a bright/foggy future ahead for TKG. 

Sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop.

That's all for now! Orphans is still on the way as our the audio horrors and some of our other stretch goals. We'll check back in soon!

We're about to unlock FREE LED CANDLES! 🕯️

P.S. Don't forget! If you're a Werewolf/Mafia/Social Deduction/Hide-and-go-Seek fan, our newest game Werewolf in the Dark is crowdfunding now! It's only got a week left and is close to its last stretch goal. 

Check out Werewolf in the Dark, now!

Fulfillment Near Completion
about 2 months ago – Mon, May 20, 2024 at 08:28:48 AM

Hey gang,

TL;DR: Wave 1 near complete, Wave 2 shipping has begun. Let’s get into the details.

Wave 1

Wave 1 shipping is complete for many regions and the majority of packages have been shipped. The details vary per region. See below:

  • US: Wave 1 fulfillment is complete. QML is working through some orders that have issues (less than .01 percent) and are almost done with those as well.
  • CA: Wave 1 fulfillment  is complete. QML is working through some orders that have issues (less than .01 percent) and are almost done with those as well.
  • AU: Aetherwerks have started Wave 1 fulfillment and is nearing completion.
  • EU/UK/Europe: PTS/Matagot have started Wave 1 fulfillment and is nearing completion. Our shipping partner there is based in France, which had several national holidays in May so they are behind where they’d like to be and have about 1,600 parcels left to ship.
  • Asia: VFI has begun packing all of the shipments to the individual territories and will stock those territories in May. The timing on each of these regions vary, but generally mainland Asia will receive their packages earlier, as they don’t have to be freighted before they can be fulfilled.
  • ROW: Wave 1 fulfillment is complete. QML is working through some orders that have issues (less than .01 percent) and are almost done with those as well.

Wave 2

Wave 2 shipping has begun.

  • US: Wave 2 fulfillment has begun.
  • CA: Wave 2 fulfillment has begun. they will be trucked to Canada as per Wave 1 where they will then be dispatched.
  • AU: Wave 2 fulfillment is getting stocked right now. We will update when fulfillment has begun.
  • EU/UK/Europe: Wave 2 fulfillment is getting stocked right now. We will update when fulfillment has begun.
  • Asia: Wave 2 fulfillment is getting stocked right now. We will update when fulfillment has begun.

If you have an issue (such as a lost, damaged, or incorrectly shipped items), first reach out to the fulfillment partner using their pages below:



If they aren’t able to resolve your issue, then please contact us at [email protected]. Often they have more up to date information than we do, so it’s best to check with them first.

Updated PDFs

We have new updated PDFs and other digital content that we'll be uploading to your Backerkit page over the next few days, you'll receive an e-mail once those are live. These are minor cosmetic changes to display errors introduced in the digital version, there are no content changes.

Printable Warden’s Screen

We also have the printable Warden’s Screen finished and will add those to your digital assets as well. You should receive an e-mail about the new file from Backerkit!

Orphans and other stretch goals

Orphans had a minor setback due to some personnel changes, but we’re back on it and near the finish line. My hope is that by the next update we’ll be able to send it out. Audio Distress Signals are ongoing!

Other than that, fulfillment should be wrapped up by our next update! Thank you all so much for an amazing campaign and for being such incredible backers.

Werewolf in the Dark

If you like hidden role games or social deduction games (like Werwolf or Two Rooms and a Boom), we have a new game launching this Tuesday on Backerkit. It’s called Werewolf in the Dark and it’s werewolf meets hide-and-go-seek in total darkness. It’s a ton of fun, and you can sign up to be notified here.

That’s all for now! Stay safe out there!

Let's Ship This Mother
3 months ago – Fri, Apr 12, 2024 at 03:22:21 PM

Hey gang,

As many of you have noticed, fulfillment has begun! Here are the details by region.

When will my game ship?

United States

Fulfillment has begun and should take a couple of weeks to finish. You should receive an e-mail with tracking.


The EU/UK has received their goods and is formatting their data. If there are no problems, they should begin packing and fulfilling next week.


Packing has begun, and fulfillment will take 2-3 weeks to finish. The orders are packed in the US, freighted on trucks to Canada (which takes 4-5 days), then turned over for local delivery. You'll receive an e-mail when your order has been picked up by the caravan with instructions on when tracking will go live.


Australia should start packing in late April. The data is currently being formatted, and there's been some stock issues with what we sent vs. what was received that we're resolving now.


Asia should start packing in late April. The data is currently being formatted, but each individual country (Japan, China, Malaysia, etc.) is shipped differently, so shipping time will vary for each country.

If you have any issues

If you have an issue that you need sorted, it's best to start by contacting the fulfillment company (which will depend on your region). If they can't solve their issues, give Tyler an e-mail at [email protected]

Digital Files & Orphans

We're still working on these, but keep an eye out!

Wave 2 Shipping

We will cut off orders for Wave 2 at the end of April and then send the files to our distributors in the first week of May for fulfillment sometime within May.

You can tag us on social media as @playtkg or @mothershiprpg or use the #mothershiprpg hashtag. If you are a reviewer, shoot us an e-mail at [email protected] to get access to our Press Kit. It includes more information about the game, as well as important dates and graphics you can use.

Hey gang,

Quick update today.

Charge card notifications are going out via backerkit starting today. This contains your final costs including any taxes, fees, shipping, or unpaid add-ons. 


Some updates to our previous update.
  • Monday, March 25: We begin charging cards.
  • Friday, March 29: Payment deadline to be included in WAVE 1 shipping. 
If you miss the payment deadline for WAVE 1, don't worry, you will still get your game. Please see "WAVE 2 SHIPPING" in update 33 for more details.

The e-mail will contain information about updating your payment or shipping information. You'll also receive (when we're closer to shipping) an address verification e-mail from our distributors, which will be your final chance to change your address.

If you don't receive it, check your spam or try logging into backerkit. Otherwise, e-mail Tyler at [email protected] if you have any other issues.

Where is everything right now?
Games have started arriving in most ports and are currently going through customs. Some distributors are waiting on what we call "hub stocks," this are accessory items (like t-shirts, patches, pamphlets) that we've had to ship out separately. Our timeline is still the same from update 33.


Okay! We'll do a large update about digital rewards, PDFs, Orphans, etc. for now we're just excited to be one step closer to shipping! Thanks so much for all your support, and thanks to our EU/UK backers for working through the VAT issue with us!
