Have a question?
Received my copies this weekend. Looking forward to playing.
Received in NYC. Thanks!
are the three art cards used in the game somehow or were they just as bonus for the KS?
Received my copy today. Nice work, Erik :)
@Jason - That pledge level was created after the stretch goal was reached so it was already factored in there. Here is the post where it was first introduced: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1460165270/genegrafter/posts/163516
Happy anniversary, Genegrafter :D
I have a question. I see that some of the stretch goals gave us additional copies of the game and expansion. How does that work for the $125 level. Will I not also receive an additional copy of the game and expansion with that set?
I am fine with waiting until October for my games! I would much rather wait to receive the product from the manufacturers that you have researched and know to be good than to try and rush it and have a less superior product than the general public will receive once you are in full production... seeing as how mine will be numbered and signed ;) Keep it consistent, keep it high quality and I will be happy to wait!
@K.C. - We've submitted our files to the printer and have received some feedback on changes that need to be made. Once our artist gets back from vacation next week we can resubmit for approval. When they are all approved I'll know better but I wouldn't bet on the manufacturing being done before August. After that everything gets loaded onto a boat and has to clear the ocean and customs which could take up to two months. October seems to be likely and we're pushing hard to be able to have everything in time for Spiel in Essen.
its been a month and a half, any update on a date?
@Mark: We're finishing up the artwork and resetting the templates now along with a couple of other surprises. I should have a more solid date for you in the next few weeks.
@Jamey: A copy of each of the Likeness characters will be in the promo packs. So everyone that backed at that level and above will get copies of anyone with a Likeness card.
Is there going to be a peek at the Likeness Characters? What about putting them in every copy? I'd rather be in my friend's copy than my copy, if you see what I mean :)
eric when do we expect the game to be made and shipped .
Has anyone tried the print and play version yet? I haven't had the oportunity yet. How is it? The rules make the game look a little more simplistic than I expected. Still excited to try it though.
Didn't make 15k, but considering it's more than 12k over the initial goal, I think that's pretty darn swell!
put another 10 in. hope you make 15000
I jumped in early at the 10.00 level. I would like to get a copy of the game at 30.00, but still want the deck for 10. How can I do this? Put in 40, keep the 10.00 deck and make a note for a boxed game at $30?
@Bigbywolfe That is correct. Each reward tier only gets one custom die by default.
So if we do the $125 we would need to add $20 to have a bonus die for each copy of the game?
@Cathy There should be a blue button in the upper-right that says "Manage your pledge". Just click on that and add $5.00 to your pledge amount. When the project ends I will send a survey with a question like, "How many extra dice did you order?"
How would I add $5 to my $30 pledge to get another really cool die to go with my 2 copies of the game?
Sorry I misspelled your name Nichole, there is a lot going on right now :-)
@Nicole Everyone at the $10 and above mark will get the PDF as well.
If I had $170 extra, I'd be snatching up that card likeness option in a heartbeat. Oh, tiny bills in the mail, why are you so needy?
Out of curiosity, do pledgers past the ten dollar lever also get the pdf version, or would we need to do something different to obtain that? Sorry if this was already asked.
Thanks, and this game looks like it will be a lot of fun!
Looks like we'll hit the stretch goal for 12,500. What's the next one?
Upped to $45 level & pushed it into 10k territory :D ($10,010 currently)
@Mark I'm not sure I understand your question. The creation of the power/abilities is a separate reward (like t-shirts, etc) at the $325 level to give a budding designer (or even an established one) the chance to put their name on Genegrafter as part of the design team.
Hey Erik, where do you want us to submit ideas for the power / abilities? Drop you a personal message or post in the comments so the ideas can get vetted? I think that was an awesome post and idea for a reward, and gives us a chance to stretch and give you even more of a hand!
Well, OOPS didn't make it, so I shifting my contribution from there to hear to bring me up to a higher level. Only 1,670 more USD to go to hit the next goal!
Way to go Erik. I'm really looking forward to playing the game!
Thanks guys! I've been working on getting you some new artwork, modified card templates, and working on pricing with the manufacturer to make sure we get the best quality available. It's going to be awesome, I can't wait to get it out to everyone!
Congratulations on the stretch goal. I'm quite excited to see the final product.
Whoo-hoo! Topped $7000!
Let's get this last $290! I hope to get a 2nd copy of this game!
joined in. looks fun. i hope that you guys get the $7000 in the next 12 days. i think you will.
I'm glad to see that this project is doing so well. Best of luck hitting the $7000 mark.
Hey Erik, love the concept and wish i could give more. Glad you made your goal.
D'oh! Should learn to read more carefully...if anyone needs to know you get 2 copies of the game and 2 copies of the mini-expansion at the $85 dollar level. Corrected my support level and a happier man for it! Thanks Erik!
Hello! Just became a supporter for 2 copies of this very cool looking card game. My question for clarification is, will this pledge level ($75), also include 2 copies of the mini expansion? Thank you for your time and consideration and wish you all the best on this project!
@Mark - Funny you should ask :-). I actually have a design diary going up tomorrow in which I will answer that very question! I'll post a link here and on Twitter when it is available.
And thank you very much for the compliments, I've worked really hard to make this look and play as good as it possibly can.
I was on the fence and still awake at 1:30 here, and the random two YouTube videos of a simple turn sold it to me! You really should make more of those and show off the game in motion. FYI the art work is top notch too. Your nephews really could be superheroes!
One thing I didn't see on the site here was end game. How do you win the game?
This looks awesome with the new art and logo. The alternative card design swayed me :) I'm in :) Let's make it to $7000. This game is looking hot.
Erik, this looks like an awesome game. Looking forward to playing it in the near future!
The mini expansion will center around a new card type: Gear, which will allow you to augment your characters with weapons, armor, and other equipment. It will contain additional characters with new powers and I'll be revealing more about the cards themselves in future updates.
can you share any details about the mini expansion and how it will change game play
Erik, I just want you to know I am REALLY excited for you. I hope you get all the funding (plus some) that you need. Thanks for the video posts.. the rules are simple enough; however, as a beginning gamer they are helpful!
Awesome, thank you. And if anyone else knows of some other places we could round up some more backers, please let us know.
Congratulations on a great first day!
I will try to get what buzz i can get going on facebook.
