We have some good news about couple of big things,
The minis are finally being shipped by EFS (US& Canadian backers), the rest of the minis rewards will be shipped from our warehouse in the upcoming week or two.
The final pending expansions is in final stages of production we can expect to see them shipped just before the end of 2013 and most of you will get it it by January 2014.
Future developments and supporting Karez:
As we are finishing the fulfillment phase in this overdue project we can start look to further develop and support the game. First thing that I will make is a video tutorial with the latest variants I uploaded to BGG. This video will be a run through of a 3 player game. It will be a teaching tool for understanding the game . I hope to shot it and edit it by January 2014 (I will keep updating you on the subject)
Revised Rule book:
I started revising the game rules so it would be less complex and more stream-lined. This revised rules (32 pages right now...) will keep the fun level while cutting down some AP and gameplay downtime. I hope to finish play testing and editing this massive project by March 2014. I know that some players would like the hardcore rules we have installed but the fact is that most of players would love a more streamlined version of Karez is what drives us to revised the whole rules.
New Co-op game :
Along with the revised rules, I started to design a new alternative co-op set of rules. Co-op has begun to be very popular with my personal taste and with many game groups that I am in touch with, so I thought that the co-op mode is a must for Karez. This new variant/game rules will be ready with the revised rules I mentioned above.
Karez is an epic game and we want to keep getting it better so you would get the best game you wished to get when you backed the game.
I will keep updating you through here and on BGG.
Thanks for the support and we hope to have better news in the following update,
