We've broken 150K! That means it's time for a fourth preview story from THIS IS HOW YOU DIE! It's called "CONFLAGRATION", and it's by Ian Stoner (writing as D.L.E. Roger). It's about someone who is able to use the machine's predictions in the aggregate to statistically predict future disasters. It's great and you can read it RIGHT THIS SECOND:
We also broke 3,000 backers, which means I invented a goal for that, and that will be to release a German translation of the game via PDF! German fans can pledge specifically at the new "TÖDLICHER SCHLAG" and "HOCHSPANNUNG" levels for a PDF of the base game or the base game + expansions, respectively. Sichert eure Unterstützung in Höhe von TÖDLICHER SCHLAG oder HOCHSPANNUNG zu, um die deutsche Version als PDF zu erhalten.
Now let's talk about handcrafting.
In today's video, I speak with Jason Lioi, who runs the online store Dapper Devil (for custom-made gaming tokens) and the Etsy shop of the same name (for fancier handmade lamps, boxes, gaming accessories and the like). Jason came over to the office today so we could talk about the fancy wooden Deluxe Box editions of our game.
If you look at the mockup image on our main campaign page, it looks fine – a cool wooden box with the MOD logo on the lid. But Jason has other ideas. He's going to hand-make each box to the exact dimensions of all the cards in this game – so no matter how many stretch goals we hit, no matter how many cards we end up with by the time this crazytrain pulls into station, they'll fit perfectly. Using his laser cutter, he's also going to uniquely number each box. And – we didn' t mention this in the video, but it's true – the Deluxe Box is also going to get some engraved tablets with various play rules on them, so you can leave them out on the table for reference during your game! These tablets will also act as separators inside the box, to keep the cards in order. I didn't even know this was possible.
GUESS WHAT THO
WE'RE DOING IT
