Four Days of Tabletop Hobby Gaming

Hey everyone, just a quick update on the status of refunds.

All refunds are being processed and proceeding normally. The process is taking longer than we anticipated due to inter-bank transfer and processing mechanics. Sorry this is taking so long, but have no fear.

I just got off the phone with Stripe, the processor, and learned that everyone's refunds should be finalized within 7-10 business days of October 1. That translates to October 18 at the latest. If you don't see the refund at your credit/debit card company by then, make sure and reach out to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Here are some additional insights on the process:

  • Sept 11 Board votes to cancel.
  • Sept 18 Announcement of cancellation.
  • Sept 19 First test refund started from event system.
  • Sept 20-28 Evaluation of refund mechanism and fees.
  • Sept 29 Remainder of refunds started from event system.
  • Oct 1 Stripe transfers money from MWGF bank to cover refunds.
  • Oct 1-18 Stripe, banks, and credit/debit card companies process the verification of funds and transfers.

Update: As of Oct 6, all refunds have been posted and are complete. =)
