Have a question?
David: I'll message you so we can figure it out.
I never got my copy of the game as a backer. Any idea what I can do?
Michelle: Those are important, no ammo or barriers could make for an interesting game! We will send you replacements today. In the meantime, there are a few proxy tokens in the punchboard sheets that might help.
Just unboxed my game and missing the red and black squares. Any way to get my hands on them or are they not that important? Don't know as we haven't started trying to play yet...
Timster80: We made it hard on purpose, but the goal is that you feel like you are always just a couple turns from losing, not continually hopeless. Don't be afraid to tune the difficulty to your liking and then make it harder later once you have some wins under your belt. If enemies are a particular problem but you want the same overall difficulty, use one less enemy and 4 more hazards. I would definitely suggest starting with at least 3 survivors, the 2 survivor variant is balanced mathematically, but requires you to worry a lot more about positioning and timing. Also make sure that you're not using the Elite enemy tiles. Again, they are balanced, but can require strategies that you may not have picked up yet.
I played it four times now - and had to give up every single time. It's pretty hard. Okay, I played alone today, with two survivors, and missed that both characters get two additional AP and an armor. But there were so many enemies and two spawn pits, I had no chance at all. Especially without enough ammo.
Awesome!! We played our first game last night and were impressed with the gameplay. The game was very atmospheric, simple to play and learn, yet complex in its strategy. It's very fast paced and every aspect of it is well thought through, starting from the graphics, the box, every single component, gameplay, missions, etc. I just hope we will be able to survive in the future: We were playing a Difficulty 2 rating and had our hands full with blazes close to our base, a brute chasing us around and food running low! Very much looking forward to playing more! Wonderful game! I hope there will be an expansion! Thanks a lot for all the effort you put into this!
I just got mine. Very excited! Going to spend the evening unboxing and then have a game night tomorrow night. Thanks a lot for all the effort you put into this! Kudos!
Received today, here in the UK. Looking forward to unboxing & playing. Thanks.
I got my game yesterday and immediately played the beginner mission - I love it, it's a great game!
I noticed that one or two page indications in the manual are wrong. For example on one site it says go to page X for more information. But actually it's the page Y, just like stated in the subject index on the back of the manual. And there is another mistake in the text (can't remember that one at the moment). But that's okay, I figured it out.
Maybe I'll continue my translation work from the english manual into a german pdf, just to make it easier to read for german players. The version on your website is an old one.
Thank you for the info Dave!
Hey guys! Loving having the game to play. I'm actually taking the game to board game club tomorrow at school to try to teach it to teens. By any chance can you upload a final version of the rules to either your site or bgg?
Thomas: The games were delivered to the warehouse a few weeks ago, but the checking in process has been taking far longer than it should. We are not very happy with them right now, but they assure us that it will be complete tomorrow and we can start shipping then.
How far is the shipping process in Europe? Did anyone get it yet from the UK? :D
Got my copy! Looks amazing and can't wait to try it out. :)
Carolyn: You can ask here, either through a message or comment, or send a Facebook message to the Rob and Dave Games page. The last option *might* even buzz our phones and get you an immediate response, though that is as yet untested.
Got mine Wednesday and love it - I played a test game by myself and will play with friends tonight. Is there a good place to ask for rule clarifications?
My copy arrived in the mail yesterday. I enjoyed unboxing everything. I'm impressed with the quality of the components. I'm looking forward to playing this game soon.
Just received mine in Houston Texas. Unboxing was an amazing experience. The side of the inner box? Oh no you didn't. What an amazing unexpected suprise. Thank you for making kickstarting Unknown such an amazing experience. I will be playing this with the wife for the rest of the day and will keep my eyes open for the expansions.
Mine came today and i have to say everything is even better quality then expected!! Love the insert. can't wait to teach my game group.
Got the game! We decided to try straight off the deep end by mixing all of the monsters in. This went rather well.. at least until encountering a party of Behemoths and Strangers. :p
Michael: Thanks for the heads up! You (and a few others) will be getting their second copy shipped out today. Sorry for the delay.
Just got my shipping tracking information. I'm hoping I can get it before the end of the day on Thursday. :D Otherwise I'll have to wait until Sunday to check it out.
I received a shipping confirmation yesterday, but it only shows a Quantity of 1. I backed at the rewards tier that included 2 copies of the board game. I just wanted to be sure that both copies are being shipped and that this didn't get lost in the shipping order at Amazon!
Any new updates?
Are you guys using a fulfillment company? or if your shipping em out yourself, any chance at local pick up for those of us in the area? or a launch party/ roll out at any local gamest ores?
How would you prefer we update our addresses? The last update mentioned updating your address if you have moved, but provided no link or instruction for doing so. I don't even remember filling out a survey, although I'm sure I did at some point, but I cannot find a link for it.
Hey, just wondering if there are any updates.
Any news to report?
Sorry for the silence, we've had a string of sick kids since the holidays ended. Production has started, and we should have a more detailed update soon.
Has production started yet?
What @Adam said... Update?
Everything sounded great from your last update, have the wooden samples all been approved / the timeline started for getting everything across the ocean? :)
they are nominated for the 20 most interesting games coming in 2016 on BGG go and give em a vote!! https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/201632/item/4338191#item4338191
What's going on with this game?
Address comformation was a suprise!
Any update on this?
Any update? The last thing said 5 months from February. It is now 7 months.
Please send an update with status of printing & shipment. Many of us don't have time to check the comments, but we do check our e-mail where the updates come through. Thank you.
Can we have an update please?
Can we have a look at the newest version of the rules?
@Judy Krauss : Just posted reply to comments. Been buried in photoshop and illustrator, I forget there are other things in the world :). Thank you.
@ Dave Schroeder:
Important: Please read the comments for your update: Missions, Box, and Schedule. Thanks.
That's an understandable sentiment, and we agree. I can't say it's done, but it's close, and we will have an update soon with more details.
I think I'm not alone in saying that our patience is at an end.
It's time to produce a game.
Update please. Is the game already off to the printer?
Leonardo: The short answer is late summer or fall. We have mission and minor objective cards, the last parts of the manual, and the bottom of the box to finish and then it's off to the printer.
We went into a bit more detail of the timeline in a previous update (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1299225771/unknown-1-6-player-cooperative-boardgame/posts/1136935) if you want a longer answer.
When exactly are you going to ship the game?
Anything new these days?
