The Board 2 Pieces books are finally in, and I'm starting to ship them out to backers!
If for some reason you never filled out your survey, please do so now to ensure you get your books and your print.
Please be aware that while I'm sending out the books now, it will take several days to fulfill all the orders, so you may not receive your books until sometime next week.
This new strategy puzzle game from Bezier games has you assembling the finest team of super-powered Mutant Meeples possible while preventing crimes in the city of Meeptropolis. Check it out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tedalspach/mutant-meeples
This morning I sent in the PDFs for book 2: Something Smells Gamey, so the printer has them now. I should be getting a proof within a week or so, and will post images of that. Until then, here's a look at some of the finished pages:
Huge thanks to the 100+ backers for turning this project into a reality. At $4990, this project ended up coming in at over 400% of the original goal!
The books are almost finished, and will be off to the printer by the end of this week. I'm expecting delivery of them by early November at the very latest, so be sure to fill out the survey I sent out earlier today to ensure you get your books right away!
On a Kickstarter-related note, there's a project you might be interested in...The guys who do "The Spiel" podcast are raising money to do video interviews at Essen (in just a few weeks) and a behind-the-scenes look at LudoFact, the giant boardgame manufacturer in Germany. I visited LudoFact several years ago, and it was incredible. They're not quite at their goal yet, but they're really really close, and I'd encourage you to back them at http://kck.st/pNTK1c. The Essen stuff will be good (what they did at GenCon was really great...a lot of small publishers were interviewed that I had never heard of before), but the LudoFact thing will be awesome!
Thanks again for your support!
