      Any way other than paypal to donate towards the Equilibrium production? I dont have access to a paypal account but would like to make a small contribution

    5. W. Chad Hanson on June 5

      I'll add my thanks too! When many KS projects try to squeeze every last penny out of us, it's nice to feel like we were rewarded for our patronage. It will be noted and remembered.

      Hello everybody. I've postponed a little my next update because I want to say final word on Equilibrium and I'm obtaining all necessary info to make responsible decision. I hope for tomorrow/Monday at the latest update. Have a great day, Rudy

      @Vladimir I have replied through KS in-mail. We plan other language rule book versions, maybe even printed. Btw...thank you again for your strong support! Rudy

      Vladimir on May 27

      Rudy, will the rulebook be just in English or as you hopefully have big CZ/SK fanclub, could it also be in mother tongue version? :) Have backed for 3 pcs yet and thinking about the fourth one...

    18. Henry So on May 27

      I don't see how two handed will work since each hand is vying for position. You'd have to split-brain the hands to make that viable.

      Hi! Is there no solo variant? Solo gamers are the second largest guild on BGG! Even if you don't have an official solo variant, can this game be player solo by controlling both hands? Thank you!

    20. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 27

      I would describe it that in every player count Envyra offers same conditions and game play environment (few random tiles out, different numbers of tiles displayed, etc.). Thus only difference arises from personal preference (some like more 2p, some opposite, but most would enjoy all player counts).

    21. Henry So on May 27

      How does the game change with the different player counts? I'm asking more about the feel of the turns than rules changes.

    22. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 27

      Interesting idea indeed. :-) But 'logistically' it could be hard to hide your secret goal this way...especially if you have small 'table space'

    23. Chris Mussett on May 27

      Just a thought - you could print a choice of two secret Equilibrium objectives on the reverse of each player board.

    24. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 27

      @Angela: I second that, we tested Envyra without Equilibrium for one year! Only then come an idea to create Equilibrium as an OPTIONAL expansion. And we still play both 'versions', with and without E. Either way, you, supporters who helped me with my Envyra dream, will get an option to get Equilbrium easy and ...... simply to say you are not going to be unhappy :-)

    25. Angela: #Doomfiable #frostedBrownies
      on May 27

      The game is still fun to play without equilibrium, so that shouldn't stop backers from pledging.

      We'll just see where we end...

      I just upgraded from early bird to Red to get us closer to the end goal! Looking forward to playing the game with my family!

      After reading over the rules to the Equilibrium Mini-Expansion, I’m really liking both variants.

      The hidden goals for end game points is always a lot of fun to add to games where you are making secret selections for simultaneous reveals.

      Plus the other variant with public claimable goals is awesome, kinda like the Noble Tiles in Splendor.

      Really excited to get this game to my gaming table 😀

      Since you are already going to produce the box, maybe remove it from the stretch goals altogether and just add it to the product.
      At first glace someone new to the project might see the amount collected, compare to to stretch goals and decide not to back since we will not make it to equilibrium anyways. On The other hand, seeing the addon already included might attract backers.

      But thats just me - I never got the appeal of stretch goals.

    29. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 26

      Hi. As I said in Update#9, Equilibrium will be produced. I don't want to ask backers for more money as my plan was and still is to give Equilibrium to my loyal backers for free. But in any case don't be afraid. After campaign ends (and I check final numbers) I'll find and offer preferential and simple way for backers to get Equilibrium. :-) But right now, let's focus on easiest way ;-)

      Yeah ending over a holiday weekend is never good.

      Any chance we could add-on the SG instead of we don't reach that goal?

      Piker on May 26

      I have a bad feeling that ending over a holiday weekend is going to hurt the final push. I just posted a link and info on the Fireball Island page. They have 23,000+ backers so even if a small percent take a look it could help. Good Luck!

    32. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 26

      Overall graphical 'feel' and appearance of Envyra remains, but we are going to polish (more or less) almost all graphical elements (box, tiles, boards, shields). Actually, we are already working on it. I want you to have Envyra in the 'front row' of your board game shelf :-)

    33. TyDeL
      on May 25

      Has it been stated, is there going to be a graphic design/art update to the game, or is this the final art?

    34. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 24

      Thank you Carl. That is precisely what we need.

      I was asked on Sprawlopolis what other games I was supporting. I was able to share about Envyra to the 3750 people supporting that game. Hopefully some of them will come over here to support your game also!

      Just liked a bunch of Envyra posts as well. Good luck!

      That is right! Posts are important for us as they are following our progress... Best, Rudy

      So just to clarify, if I like the page and 4 posts that would equal 5 Facebook likes? If so we are much closer than it seems.

    40. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 23

      Social Stretch Goal mini update: We are safe with BGG. :-) ...and we are only around 80 likes short on Facebook (cumulative page/posts likes)

      Reminder Alert! Don't forget about the Social Stretch goals! 250 likes on Facebook and 100 fans on BGG! :)


    42. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 22

      Thank you a lot! I'm really proud of your support.

    43. David B. Talton Jr. on May 22

      I wish you good luck, Rudy! :D

    44. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 22

      Thank you all for your effort. Don't be afraid about Equilibrium. We have more than 5 days in front of us and will work together hard to get there. Last days are usually quite strong and I'm doing my best to prove that. I want Equilibrium to be FREE for all of you, Kickstarter supporters. Envyra is something special to me and this great game is becoming reality ONLY thanks to you.

      Carl D McArthy on May 22

      I agree with @Piker. Get those FB likes and BGG social goals done! I too am worried about reaching the next goal. Equilibrium sounds awesome!

    46. Missing avatar

      Piker on May 22

      I was feeling really good about Equilibrium, but pledges seem to have stalled out. Hopefully we will get a last few days surge.

      Also, let's get that social stretch goal. Hit those likes to get us through. You can always unlike after the campaign if necessary.

      Come on everyone! We can do it. Dont you like free bag for your game :)

    48. RUDY3 Publishing Creator on May 21

      Hi. We will publish update soon, hopefully on the occasion of reaching second stretch goal :-). And social stretch goal is not that far as it may seem as we want cumulate page/picture likes/fans. You all deserve it for your support.
