Happy Holidays: Post-Kickstarter week 12

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Season's greetings to all the residents of Gloomhaven!

The update may be coming to you late, but I figure such things are understandable given the circumstances. I am currently at the tail end of a very merry Christmas, where both T.I.M.E. Stories and Pandemic Legacy have entered the household, so I'm certainly happy about that.

There's not too much to update you on this week. Things have slowed down a bit with the holidays, as expected. I was up in northern Indiana the past couple days with my wife's parents. I did, however, manage to get 9 new scenarios put up on Tabletop Zen (labeled as play test 3) for play testing and the perusal of anyone interested.

These 9 scenarios consist of the 6 fan-made scenarios selected to be in the game, plus 3 of the scenarios contributed by guest designers. If you want to check them out, largely spoiler free (only the 6 starting classes are made available and no story text is on the scenario book pages), you can do that, or you can experience them fresh when you get the game.

Other than that, you know, we soldier on. After some revisions, Álvaro has sent in some tile designs that I am very happy with. There is a lot of Alexandr's item art incorporated into the tiles and each one is feeling like its own unique environment.

All the master figures for the minis are now in the factory's hands in China and we are starting to hash out that process with ample time in case we run into snags.

All in all, everything is going pretty well. I hope your holidays are going great as well, and I will see you again in the new year!

      I like it, I'd vary at least one side "insert" for the dungeon tile (just gfx).
      I passed on the solitaire games that T.I.M.E. Stories and Pandemic in essence are.

      Happy Christmas to you!

      Hope you found the FAQ I created for TIME Stories useful - a lot of the rules and cards were very unclear, and they've reversed some of the rules :)

      oh dont die... something tells me I going to want gloohaven season 2 / expansions... well, no until at least the game is done .. jk LOL.. just dont die :)

      Oh let us know what you think about Legacy pandemic. I miss my chance to buy it on a cheaper price, so gonna wait again. But very intrigued that it might be boring for my group, watch the video and seem quite simple...

      T.I.M.E. Stories and Pandemic: Legacy? I got both for my wife! Good choices. :)

      Haha, if you don't get a Friday update from me, you should maybe be concerned that I have died.

      That tile looks great. Hope you have a good holiday break. Lots of work to pull-off this game, I'm sure you need a little rest as we all do.
