Have a question?
I am thinking about late backing Page Quest at the $22USD level and picking up the Hideki add-on while I am at it. I see that 5-minute chase will be added to the pledge manager, would Page quest late pledges be available as well?
I would like to save on shipping costs rather than place two separate orders if possible.
@Creator - great. Thanks.
@Scott - yes, we will add this game to Pledge Manager - so you will be able to collect it with your pledge, to optimize the shipping costs.
@Creator - will 5 min chase be available in the PM?
@Scott - no problem! hope our update fits you well ;)
@Creator - Thanks for the info.
@All - about $100 added from the last update - so we have 'cold time' right now...
About adding something to the main campaign page - it's no longer possible - editing is closed after the project ends.
But you know, UK Games Expo is in next week, we will have Blight prototype, so everyone can visit us, play the game and will receive information about the late pledge.
Please give us few minutes, and we will send a new update about UKGE and what is going on in B&D :)
I'm hoping the late pledges are going well. Can we get an update on the current pledge amount? Also .. having a sketch or something posted on campaign page may help to draw more pledges in.. or potential upgrades of current lower level backers.
@Creator - how are we doing with the insert and late pledges?
Happy to know about late pledge details and neoprene mat. Thanks a lot!
Sure guys! we will update here more details soon :)
Ok.. thanks. Hope to hear some details on that when you nail things down.
@creator - I would be happy if the neoprene mat had the same design as the bog board, but with room for the top and bottom card rows to completely fit on the mat.
@thelamby - yes, it will :)
@Terry - right now I don't know, we are speaking about the possibilities, minimum quantities, and we also need to prepare the design, so it's too early to answer your questions.
What will the mat add on cost? And is it essentially the big brd? Or will it be a different brd all together?
I hope the PM will allow backers to upgrade their pledges from Rookie to Operative (change pledge levels).
Great news! And I will definitely consider picking up the mat in the PM even though I have the compact version.
Guys, a little update.
Right now in Late Pledge, we have $468
So together with project amount: $53.423 - one step closer to the insert!
@Olly - Neoprene matt will be as a proposal in Pledge Manager for all Backers, but we don't want this add on to be involved in increasing the 'goal amount,' because it's not related with the game, and it doesn't change much in cost calculation for the game itself.
@creator - neoprene mat (and associated p&p) will definitely help both with the stretch goal achievement. Discus....
@Scott C: ekhm... no ;)
@Creator - did you notice the subtle hints? Haha!
Especially with the box insert! ;)
Missing 3 Hideaki level up cards would be nice on the neoprene mat add-on! ;)
Right, Piotr, they announced 3 additional cards for Hideaki.
Both of the other characters have 6 additional level up cards, though, so that's why some of us dream of making these numbers even :)
@Nicos They've already announced in the latest update that they will add three additional level up cards for Hideaki.
That would be awesome indeed, Nicos.
But it's OK if I don't see any advantage for myself in any given surprise. I'm fine with what I backed in any case :)
@angela maybe its additional +3 cards for 3rd agents so that equal to all 3 characters then you have somethign from it ^^
Or it could be a neoprene mat add-on? I love surprises too!!! I can't even sleep now waiting in anticipation.
I have a feeling that it's going to have something to do with a certain box insert.
Now that maybe won't be all that interesting for me, since I'm most happy with getting a compact box and would not switch, but I love surprises nevertheless :)
@Angela M.: we love surprises ;)
You still have surprises coming up? Lovely, I'll be curious to see them, thanks.
I think we will have good news for you Agents. The update will be released today in the evening (CET). So have a great day and stay tuned :)
+1 on what Steven Crane said
This will be an awesome game. Congrats on a great campaign!
Guys, Thanks for all your ideas. We will be talking this out during the weekend.
@Board&Dice. My comment that maybe Pledge manager funds could unlock the Stretch Goal was just a way of looking towards seeing if it could still be achieved as it's been done on many a Kickstarter before and I felt there was no harm in asking. As you have seen some people are disappointed that we only saw one Operative level pledge stretch goal achieved. We'd be lying if we didn't admit that, but we still pledged the maximum amount of money to the campaign. I even thrown another $5 in for the 3rd Agent.
Congrats on the campaigns success, and please remember that your backers all have a vested interest in the game being the best game possible
@Creator - I figured it would be too much to make the board bigger which is why a neoprene mat might be the best solution. I am sure there are plenty of backers who would add it on even if it increases shipping costs. Or maybe you could do a KS campaign in a month or so just for the neoprene playmat and any other small add-ons you think of? Then you could make sure you hit the minimum order needed and if the campaign doesn't fund then you are not left with a loss.
@ Creator - Congrats on your latest KS campaign success.
Please can you keep the updates coming.
I am genuinely gutted that we missed out on the plastic insert. Is there any way that late pledges in the pledge manager can unlock it for us all?
If not, please could you provide your sketches as a .pdf so we can use foam core to make a replica of your insert.
Not as nice maybe.. but could take up less space and be more compact would be a cloth printed brd. Probably lighter too.
All comments about the board are very welcome - we will talk them all through. But making this board even bigger is not possible :( (costs, weight, shipping...)
Neoprene mat - I will talk with our partners about that, but you should be aware that this can increase shipping rate for Backers who will decide to add it - there is always a problem with packing it, and it makes packages bigger, and that influence dimensional weight in shipping offers.
It would have been nice if the board was big enough to accommodate all the cards instead of having cards above and below that don't fully fit on the board. But I am hopeful a full size neoprene playmat will come in the future. That would be the best.
+1 color coding
I think the larger brd is worth it IF the lay out gets reworked. Right now it looks very cramped and cluttered. Making the suspicion tracker more of a long continuous string of spots would be better. Maybe even color code them for ease of use to tell if you go over the max for that stage.
@Dani Garcia: Please remember that you had a choice between 2 pledges - cheaper and standard.
This is why we have decided to do so - to give people a choice.
The truth is I was expecting more operative stretch goals to be worth the extra price. Right now is only 1 addon of 5$ and a bigger board that maybe is not that necessary but is nice to have.
I’m happy expecting the game and is worth the price. Just thinking about the campaign
@Terry - Indeed, we will be back in few days, and you also should have a great weekend with a lot of cool board games :)
Agreed.. enjoy the con and looking forward to hearing from you guys next week or so.
@Terry - no hard feelings here, maybe we come across our project more emotional than we should. And we are taking your posts as good advice - that's for sure. And let us all just prepare for a cool weekend full of board games (I hope ) ;)
B&D I think you are reading some emotion into my statements that simply are not there. I pledged for the bigger box simply because I thought the brd would make the game a bit easier to play. I was hoping to get the plastic insert but it's not a huge deal that we didn't. So please take no offense my posts were meant to be helpful to you hopefully.
