Simon Coronel / Magic Puzzle Kickstarter

Postby David Kaplan » August 31st, 2020, 5:28 pm

Does anyone have any news about Simon Coronel or his Magic Puzzle Kickstarter project? I was one of over 62,000 backers who pledged a total of nearly $3.5M for his intriguing jigsaw puzzles. See: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ma ... escription

The Kickstarter page is flooded with messages from anxious backers who haven't received an update since June 23rd. Simon's website also seems to be down.

Thanks for any insights.

I'm a backer too. The silence seems to have started about the same time as one of the principals of the enterprise stepped down after a surge of sexual assault and racist accusations from staff at his other company.

I'm happy to report that the silence has broken. Looks like the puzzles will be shipping over the next couple of months.
