While Rahdo also convinced me to back rather bad games (I am looking at you, Posthuman) he is certainly a great reviewer despite that I don’t share his preference for non-interaction and eurogames.
I really hope he is spot on with Santorini (right now on KS) and I can see why he encourages you. He can really praise games he likes :).
And… take your time, make some breaks. Don’t push yourself too hard!
We can wait, the more relaxed you are the better the game will be and the less burned out you will be!
"There were actually fewer edits than I was expecting, so that's good." Well, you know how they say never count your chickens before they hatch? Haha... I was hoping to get my corrections out to you today, but there are just so many cards that when one thing pops up, I sometimes have to run back through them all just to check on something or correct them all, you know? As I said before, it's quite maddening! But long story short, I'll be sending you an email sometime this weekend, because I think 15 or so pages may be a bit much for the above linked BGG thread, haha... On the plus side, though, at least it's not 30!
That rule book is looking really good. I've been enjoying reading through it this weekend. Certainly wets the appetite. Keep up the great work!
As always, take your time. The scenario text shouldn't be 3 am ramblings of a madman (well madder than normal). Thanks Isaac!
Thanks for the brawling brothers recommendation... Listened to a bunch of their podcasts today while working. Hearing your interview there reminded me how much DnD experience you have and renewed my excitement for the scenarios. Josh and Brandon are great, I kept picturing the guys from the Sonic commercials when listening to them and it made me laugh.
So... are the maptiles/mapdiagrammes in the rulebook/scenariobook final? The lack of endcaps and quite a few loose connectors in all the mapdiagrammes have me a bit worried that these things could sort of break the immersion and atmosphere of this game a little bit, while being quite easily avoidable.
Apart from that, I feel like this game is progressing really well; keep up the good work!
Minor question. The rulebook lists character miniatures, and I assume will list standees for people who chose the standee option. Which version will people who chose standee with miniature add on get?
We decided to go with only one version of the rule book, since the mention of minis in the game components section is the only difference and it would cost significantly more to make two versions of the rules. So the standee version will have a mention of minis. I hope that doesn't ruin your day.
Hello, I was wondering if using gold/yellow stands for the elites would be a better option. It would then align with the monster placement legend in the scenario setup. Black for none, Clear/white for normal and yellow/gold for Elites.
Also I noticed a round tracker listed in the components but not referenced anywhere in the rule book.
This one is about the cards from last week but I figured you're more likely to read it here... the formatting is inconsistent on card 119 from card 126 - the way that augments are coloured on the MT. I prefer the style used on 119 with the different colour backing the augment, as it helps to understand the card more quickly.
The same applies to the SS, since his/her songs would also benefit from the shaded background like in card 119.
Hope that helps!
