The Labor Nears Its End: Post-Kickstarter week 30

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Hey all you residents of Gloomhaven!

I just broke 100 pages on the scenario book today, working on #79. Now I have #80 finished and I will freely admit that I am looking forward to next week when I can tell you that all 95 are completed. This task has been Herculean, and all I can do is take it one day at a time.

There's not much more than that to report this week unfortunately. The next (near-final) draft of the rules is not quite ready yet, so I will be posting that next week.

Oh, and also Álvaro just finished the last of the overlay tiles today, which is great news. We can start putting those into the scenario book (which currently is full of a lot of placeholders) and start getting that ready for the editing process. The earlier we can start editing that beast, the better!

One other important thing I'd like to mention is that now that the surveys are out, I get a lot of messages about changing your survey address. I just want to let you all know that address edits are open and they will remain open until we start shipping out the games.

What that means is that if you need to change your address, don't contact me, just click on the blue "View Pledge" button at the top right of the Kickstarter page, click on the "Survey" tab, and then click on the "Edit Address" link. Simple!

Other than that, I hope you are doing something awesome for International Tabletop Day. I'm certainly looking forward to playing board games all day instead of staring at my computer screen.

Until next time!

      I'm honestly a bit concerned about so many scenarios being written in such a short order of time. Specifically, that the will be repetitive or unbalance. It is really the only concern about this game. I really want it to be excellent in every way.

      Thanks for the update. I just hope that you don't rush the scenarios too much and take enough time to playtest them. I can only imagine that one is bound to suffer from tunnel vision when doing so many scenarios in a row.

      BGG November. I have yet to get my invoice. I can add to it until that point. Currently have 4 passes. are claimed. I can add more until the bill is sent (should have happened already). BGG join Bob's Weekend Wonders. Hopefully I will have this for sale at that event.
