V-Commandos - June Update

Posted by Triton Noir (Creator)


Back from Europe the day before yesterday, I am still jetlagged and tired. I will keep it short today and post another update later this month when I will have received the missing info about closing Backerkit, shipping costs and shipping your boxes.

So I invite you to check the V-Commandos Facebook group to get some news about what happened in June: some photos of the preproduction copies of the 2 expansions, the videos recorded on the Tric Trac web site (French), some photos from the 2 conventions I attended (UK Games Expo and Paris est Ludique)...

 V-Commandos Preproduction copy

At last, I received the latest preproduction copy of V-Commandos and the Kickstarter bonuses. Just waiting for the dice next week! For information, the boxes are bilingual English-French, all rulebooks and cards will be in double in each box.




See you soon!




De retour d'Europe avant hier, je suis encore sous l'effet du décalage horaire et fatigué. Je vais donc faire court aujourd'hui et reposter une actu un peu plus tard dans le mois quand j'aurai reçu les infos que j'attends à propos de la fermeture de Backerkit, des frais de port et de l'envoi de vos boîtes.

Je vous invite donc à aller voir ce qui s'est passé en juin sur le groupe Facebook de V-Commandos : des photos des exemplaires de pré-production des 2 extensions, les vidéos tournées sur le site de Tric Trac (interview et présentation de la gamme, pour les abonnés : une explication des règles et partie rapide), des photos des salons auxquels j'ai assisté (UK Games Expo et Paris est Ludique)...

Boîte de pré-production de V-Commandos

J'ai enfin reçu la boite de pré-production de V-Commandos et les bonus Kickstarter. Il ne manque plus que les dés qui ne vont pas tarder ! Pour info, les boites sont bilingues français-anglais, les cartes et règles sont en double dans chaque boîte.




A bientôt,

      @Vagabond: the main reason was to produce less expansions: our manufacturer requires a minimum print run of 1.500 copies for each box. We would have been forced to produce 1.500 copies in English and 1.500 in French which is too much for us. This also simplifies the logistics: we only have 1 box of each. This is also good for Canada retailers, particularly in Quebec where we are located: they are not allowed to seel a product in English if they do not sell a French version on the same product.
      We will not save money by mailing them because they are more heavy than if there was only 1 language, but it will also reduce the risk of shipping errors to the backers: no risk to receive the wrong language.

      Are you saving money by mailing all the games in both languages? Seems like a waste of paper.

      @Stev0 & JKP: We have very high expectations for V-Commandos too. Please keep in mind that we are creating 1 game AND 2 expansions, each of them with a generous content, and in 2 languages.
      Our goal when sharing the game's developement steps every month to keep you updated, not to tease you (even if I can understand that it's hard to wait). I think sharing the pre-production copies can be seen as a good sign that the game will be on your doorstep soon.
      Thanks for your patience and be sure we are still doing our best to ship the game asap.

      Would like to see the final on my doorstep. Not sure how an extra year of time was needed for an all paper product vs one with a great amount of figures. My expectations are very high at this point.

      Looks great! I just wish we could get this done. The anticipation is killing me. Just feels like we are just going to keep getting monthly updates until we give up or die.
