We're Back and You've Backed!

Posted by Mercury Games Inc. (Creator)

Hello to all of our Backers and a special welcome to those new Backers who have joined us since the last update! Thank you for taking the time to support this project.

We spent most of the past week showing off the new Big City buildings at BGG.con in Dallas, Texas, and the reactions we got there were overwhelmingly-positive. Our favorite reaction, which we heard several times was "No wait, these are just large samples - backers get something smaller, right?". When we would reveal that, no, these are the same size that Backers will receive, we saw eyes light up, cameras come out, and friends being texted to come by our booth to see for themselves. Needless to say, people are excited!

Did you come by our booth at BGG.con to see the Big City buildings? If so, please post a reply here in this Backer Update to let everyone know your thoughts.

While we were away, you really piled on the pledges too, and that means we unlocked another stretch goal just as we were landing at the airport. We're so happy to make it official and let everyone know that now we can DOUBLE the number of reference cards in the game so that everyone has easy access to that important information at any time.

Reference cards aren't the flashiest of stretch goals, of course, but as most gamers know, having that information at your fingertips is always better than the traditional method of "Hey, can you pass me the rulebook for a moment?".

In any case, congratulations on this big unlock, and we really want to hit that next one as well.  In fact, we're dying to reveal the secret goal to you too.

You can help us out by sharing this project on social media and/or telling someone you think would be interested. We thank everyone who has taken a moment to do that - we can see your efforts and we really appreciate them.

We'll talk to you again soon!

      @JL - The reference card ends up being larger than the expansion box, unfortunately.

      Any chance a reference card can be included in the expansion, so the fifth player doesn't have to go begging all of the other players to look at one?

      Would it be possible for backers to get a digital version of the reference card to print out themselves?

      Also, I bought my original copy of the game used and my reference sheets were laminated, would it be possible to get these laminated as a stretch goal?

      Thanks mercury games, I hope we reach that secret stretch goal.
