As you probably already know, Gryphon Games shipped all Kickstarter backers their copies of Fantastiqa this week, so yours should arrive pretty soon.
While your copy makes its way to you, I wanted to share three things with you...
1) I have put together a collection of Designer's Variants (I personally recommend the Espresso Dragons!), Frequently Asked Questions, and Gameplay Strategies. It's available at the official website, fantastiqa.com
2) To help you learn the game, you might find Richard Ham's Walkthrough Video very helpful, which shows in detail how to play the game.
3) Finally, if you want a peek at early (and positive!) reviews of Fantastiqa, see here:
I have worked as hard as possible to make Fantastiqa my very best game so far, so I'm delighted at the careful attention Gryphon Games has shown in developing it and in producing the final published version. It's beautiful and full of exciting, well-made and durable components. I hope you enjoy playing this game as much as I have.
See you in Fantastiqa!
--Alf Seegert, Designer of Fantastiqa, on behalf of Gryphon Games
