New MegaBox Stretch Goals
The Alhambra contains many secrets. For instance, did you know that there is a network of underground tunnels and caverns that lies beneath the palace complex?
Like the real Alhambra, our campaign for the 15th Anniversary of Alhambra is full of secrets as well, or in this case, two secret stretch goals!
The first wasn't supposed to be secret. Many of our backers have noticed that there were two stretch goals in a row for extra content already included in the MegaBox, and wished we could include something for the MegaBox backers. What we couldn't tell them yet was we had a stretch goal planned for them as well.
We are happy to announce an (almost reached) stretch goal at 1900 backers for an upgraded insert for the MegaBox. For Queen Games, it is very important to us that we not make promises to backers before we know if we can fulfill them. Designing an insert for a game with this much content, with more being added, that does everything we want it to but does not make the box too big, has proven to be a challenge. We decided to hold off revealing the stretch goal while we worked on the design more, but we have figured out enough details to finally announce it.
Below is a digital rendition of what the insert could end up looking like, but please keep in mind this is still a work in process.
Features we are working to include are:
- Two stackable trays that will hold everything in the campaign, including two tile towers, cardboard or acrylic.
- Room for sleeved cards, even "wide sleeves"
- A guide to where everything goes in the insert
- A design that will hold everything in place even if stored vertically
We will give out more details on the design as it gets finalized.
But wait, could there be more? Why yes. It is almost time for the 2018 Spiel des Jahres nominees to be announced, so in honor of Alhambra winning the award in 2003, we are adding another stretch goal. When we hit 2003 backers, we will add an embroidered bag to all MegaBox pledges. The bag will be custom embroidered, and will be great for storing tiles, or as an alternative to the tile towers.
We are really excited to finally be able to show off what we have been working on, and we think this adds even more value to an already excellent product.
