The expansion is in high gear. All of the Castle Deck “action” card art is in and a now we’re starting on the actual castle pieces. Because of the way the expansion works, there is actually a LOT more card in in the expansion then there was in the initial release! It’s crazy! Luckily, we’ve got the same two artists working on it, so the art will stay consistent across the whole game.
Playtesting is going really well. A few cards are getting tweaked with every test, but the tweaking is getting more and more minor as we dial it all in. We’ve got the component list all nailed down, but haven’t been able to get it quoted out due to an entire nation being on vacation apparently, but once we have that info we can start working on the campaign. I plan to share the campaign page with all of you well before launch for feedback. I’ll probably do a shout out later for some “quotes from happy backers” as well so folks who may not yet own Castle Dice (gasp!) might use the campaign as a time to get with the program!
Anyway, here’s some more of the artwork to keep you all up to date. A couple of them were inspired by what we were watching at the time…
While I have you here, I thought I’d do another little shout out for another of Luke’s projects that is on Kickstarter now through a different company. It’s a set of playing cards that are all about the Meeple. It’s in the final 50 hours and could use some help. Plus, I figure if you like Castle dice, there is a greater than zero chance you would like some Meepled-up playing cards!
