Hello, first of all sorry for the delayed update; between GenCon, the end of the Eldritch Century campaign, manufacture of StoryWorld and the usual work with the day to day projects, we wanted this update to come three weeks ago but here it is :)

What Happened in the past month

  • We received the rest of the components white samples (Turn marker, Sleeve).
  • Mass production approved to start.
  • We reviewed the first resin casts of the rat miniatures; returned some of them for corrections.
  • Print and Play files sent via Backerkit to backers who selected them as add-ons
  • German and Italian digital translated rules sent via Backerkit to backers who selected them as add-ons

For backers who selected Print and Play or digital translated rules, please check your e-mail and Spam folder too. You will be able to download them through your account on Backerkit.

 What will happen during the next month

  • French translation of the rules will be finished and sent to backers.
  • Mass production of the rest of the components will be finished.
  • Games assembly will start and they will be freight forwarded to VFI Asia.
  • New rat miniatures cast will be reviewed.

So, Cooks & Crooks delivery is delayed a little bit. We expect the first backers in Asia to begin to receive their games in early September while the rest of the world will get them in late September or October. 

Next update will come once games have been shipped to our fulfillment partners. 

In other news, we want to share with you that the games from Generation 2 of Detestable Games were present at GenCon - First Exposure Hall. (Thanks to What's on the Shelf?! for helping us during the Con, video updates will be released on her channel soon).

 Some of the previous games still need slight fixes, others are almost ready to hit Kickstarter. The experience at First Exposure Playtest Hall was amazing and the feedback truly valuable. You can find some of this games on BoardGameGeek.

Thanks again for your support, we will let you know when Mass Manufacture has ended. ;)

      The latter! The cards are re-shuffled to make a new pile.

      Oh..thanks

      I am also thinking, if it happen the deck depleted, should the game be over or just reshuffle the discard pile to make a new deck?

      Hi guys! I've confirmed with @Aether Tower the PDF files should be working now. Please let us know if you continue having issues!

      @Tri-J, regarding your rules questions: yes, sabotage can be done to any other player of your choosing, and only to a single player. In a two-player game, you can use up to two cards against your opponent!

      Even you have multiple trash card, you can only sabotage 1 player at a time during your turn, right?

      Guys on the rules, step 4: sabotage, "to another player" means anybody you choose?

      Now it worked, thanks for the fix! And it looks great (I like that you can print it right away and that the instruction is included)! Thanks! :)

      I could not download the Cooks & Crooks P&P. When I click on "download" in Backerkit nothing is happen. I tried both in Firefox and Chrome. I downloaded both the C&C rules in German and Seat Wars P&P without problems today.
      Is their a problem with the C&C P&P download?
