      Had a play of this last night at my local club and we all thought it played really well and the that the artwork was bang on. It looked like one of the players were running away with the game as he was a massive town with loads of research project but he was beaten at the last moment with a bit of personality buying from the market. Good times

      Thanks for your patience with the second copy, glad it's now safely with you.

      I just received the second copy I added during the campaign. I'm actually okay with the fact that I had to wait for the second, because I got one on time anyway.

      This brings this project to a satisfying conclusion for me. Thank you GCT!

      Hello Charles, we haven't released the updated version yet, mainly because there has been no complaint or difficulty (reported) with the first version. We will however be putting them up for people to look at and give feedback on the differences.

      @BoardgameRevolution

      I think it would adapt pretty easily. I havent playtested any of the following ideas:

      First you need to think about how the Survivors are allocated. You could allocate the top one of a shuffled deck to the Vandalz (the AI player), and the let the 2 players choose between the next 3 from the top deck.

      Next you need to determine who the Vandalz are going to attack when they draw a personality card. You could do that via a simple dice role (eg odds its you, evens its the other player) OR you coulddecide they attack theplayer with the higher survivor number, which another level to consider when choosing your survivor

      Third, my solo rules state that the Vandalz get any cards in the first 3 slots of the Market Deck that have not been taken at the end of the round. This might need changing to the first 4 (or the number could be altered as a difficulty mechanic - ie the more of the cards the Vandalz scoop up, the harder the game.

      If you give it a try let me know how it goes against my original solo rules on BGG https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1774721/pioneers-program-unofficial-solo-rules

      I've just received my order today here is San Francisco. United States. Thank you so much!!! It looks absolutely gorgeous. I can see that the posted date on the shipping label was 2/5/17. So I suppose it was late delivery by the Royal Mail. I reached out to GCT and they told me that they would be sending me a second copy because my first did not arrive. I suppose I will be receiving two copies now. So be rest assured for anyone not receiving theirs. It should be coming.

      @Charles P. - The way we (my girlfriend and I) read it and play it, you can definitely use saved up resources. The only shenanigans that goes on with the resources you just produced at the start of maintenance is that you can't keep any you can't store. So you can use everything just produced, plus some saved stuff if you want to keep a certain card in your settlement.

      Hey I have a doubt with the resources you keep in your reserve : when maintenance time arrives, do you have to pay it only with the resources that you just produced or can you use the resources you had saved from previous turns too?

      @Andy you must place the research token immediately on a project of your choice.

      Hello, if anyone is still waiting please send me a private message and we will check the dispatch date and advise how long until we can claim against a lost package. Please note until the time set by the courier for lost packages is met there is nothing we can do.

      Just been playing a game. Was puzzled with the school structure card. During production you get a research token. Do you use it straight away or do you use it when you use the research action and place two tokens. Also where do you keep it, does it go to your resource pile on your player board.

      @Maross They're on their way, please don't worry, a little more patience and I'm sure they'll be with you soon.
      @Plan Bee Thanks for the review on BGG, nice to read. If you get the time please give the game a rating as well.
      @Sir Knight Night I'm really pleased you're enjoying it. Could be a cool card to be able to play to stop an opponent choosing their survivor or even getting to choose for them.
      @David Glad it's landed :-)

      Got to play another 2-player + Proxy game the other night. We played the game properly this time. No misunderstandings on the rules or setup. OMFG this game is so fun!! I love that the actions and interactions are all fully supported by the theme. Opponent plays an Attack Card on you? It's not them targeting you, per se... it's just a random Wastes encounter. I love that! Can't pay the upkeep for a card? Must be running low on post-apocalypse supplies.

      The first time we played, we dealt a random Survivor each round. Two thoughts on this:
      1. The game was more fun playing it the "right way", choosing which one you wanted based on turn order.

      2. The game was more difficult playing it the "wrong way" getting stuck with whatever Survivor the Arc saw fit to send to your town.

      Thus, it occurs to me that randomly getting a Survivor, and thus skipping the part of Step 3 where your turn order determines your pick order, could be a valid game variant. If you find yourself looking for a little tweak that doesn't totally break the game, that is. :)

      @GCT just realised that you included the custom dice (and I think some of the locked cards) Many thanks for that. Assume the ARC symbol is a six

      One additional note about the Proxy Player (will post on BGG as well):

      -It would be super helpful to have a reference to the Attack and Event cards on Proxy's rule sheet. We pulled an event last night, and I had to go looking through images on BGG to avoid going through the Wastes deck to find the card Proxy was trying to play.
