The Final Prototype

Hello!

We hope all is well. Production of Crusader Kings - the Board Game is progressing well, and we will this week receive the third and final full prototype of the game - check the video from the factory below. Aside from a few minor tweaks, this gives you a pretty good idea of how the finished game will look. Please note that this is the standard edition of the game - the bonus miniatures for the Royal Edition will come in a separate box.

Once this sample is approved by us and Paradox, final factory production will commence, and if all goes according to plan, be completed in February. Then we'll ship the game out to all backers as fast as we can!

Happy Holidays,

/Free League

      I don't see how this game will be completed in February, as we all know to well, that's when Chinese new year takes place. I've seen so many KS before being delayed over and over again due to this. So why do you guys think you can get a game out in February?
      ... unless you are working by then with company's outside of china?

      I don't think so for the sleeved cards because the high of the tile cards with sleeves will be almost the double, but In the video the insert are just enough high for the card pile without sleeves. Another game to pimp....

      Nice video and thanks!
      So Royal Edition will receive the additional miniatures in another separate box ?

      @Fnorder: We aim to ship well ahead of Mrach 29, but in any case we will have local fulfillment centers in the US and other places, so that won't be affected by Brexit. For European shipping, we are currently looking at options.

      Was this the standard version or the “royal” version with additional miniatures? Looks great

      hi, I see that there is dedicated space for cards. will it fit the cards in sleeves (arcane tinman, or any premium brand?)

      I hope you are adjusting the insert for sleeved cards. Thanks. :)

      beautiful components, too bad of the box content.
      the cards do not fit in if they are sleeved

      Is it me or does it look like sleeved cards are not going to be able to fit in those spots? Not only the width of the sleeves but the cards are already at the top of the slot. So with the extra height added from the sleeves, they would just slide around. I guess it is what it is. Going to have to figure out another storage solution,

      Yeah, whenever I hear that a boardgame "will be completed/shipped in February", I think "no it won't". Hopefully I'm wrong.

      I think they clearly communicate that we won’t get the game until May. The Chinese New Year happen in February so we won’t see any shipment until March. Then it will take roughly two months with boat and customs. Thereafter it will take another month from the fullfilment center until all backers have their copy.

      Thank you for including trays designed to actually fit everything! I can’t believe how this simple thing is so often overlooked with board games.

      Well, maybe I'll get it in time for my birthday on Mar 21st. :)
      It looks good - and I really hope the map was corrected in Britain

      @Fnorder - that is one excellent question. Hopefully it will be sent before the countdown reaches 0.

      So are the tokens (once punched) just going to sit loosely in the bags or in the bin at the bottom of the box? Seems like there will be a big gap once the tokens are punched and the sheets are discarded.

      I might have to fire up the 3D printer for some extra inserts.

      That said, the inserts for the minis look great!

    18. Sgt_Bilbo - Son of Merle Highchurch #D6 on

      Only concern I have is related to the chits that are punched out. Once those are all punched, will the storage still sit properly in that insert? I would think that the bags will not sit in a way that allows the trays holding the minis to sit properly. Other than that concern, it looks excellent.

    19. Fnorder on

      Yay! Does that mean there's a good chance the European copies will be sent before 29 March, 2019? If I recall correctly they are to be sent from the UK and that May or May not be an important deadline for costs to not be changed...
