What Happens Immediately After Kickstarter?
Hello delightful backers!
The engine of Highways & Byways continues to purr as we cruise toward our funding goal. We’re right in the middle of the Kickstarter campaign right now. This is an excellent time to think about what happens afterward to make a smooth transition afterward.
Based on a mix of reviews, comments, Kickstarter messages, and social media posts I’ve seen in the last few weeks, I have a handful of subtle game improvements to introduce to Highways & Byways. They are small enough to be introduced in the two week period that comes after funding but before receiving funds. They are:
- Add some distance between spaces on the northeast region of the board. That would make it a little less crowded. This won’t modify gameplay – just usability!
- Update the Byway Cards to reflect the slight changes to the board layout.
- Introduce a “Fast Draft” rule variant. Some players prefer the Driving Stage of the game to the Planning Stage. This would give them the option to abbreviate the Planning Stage and go right into the Driving Stage.
- Check all the rules for typos. You can never proofread too much!
One last quick thing! For those of you who are interested in tuning in, a quick reminder that there is a Highways & Byways live-stream on Saturday, April 7 at 3:00 pm EDT with Retsy Reiver.
As always, thank you for reading and thank you for your support! I really appreciate every single dollar pledged and every kind message.
