Greetings Knights!

In our last update we focused on some technical stuff. We feel we owe you more information about the campaign progress. Let’s start from the social SG for Facebook. You have many great ideas for the extra gear card. So, we have asked our talented illustrator Michał Teliga responsible for items and vehicles – among other things – to prepare a couple of sketches. You can expect your brand new gear card in tomorrow’s update.

 In the meantime, you may already start thinking about next challenges. We have added two more social Stretch Goals to unlock for you. One of them is a really heavy-duty one: if we reach 600 Fans on our game’s BoardGameGeek page, we plan to enrich your Waste Knights: Second Edition copies with another vehicle sheet. Once unlocked, you will drive the Battle Rig, an armored monster able to sustain crazy amounts of damage. Maybe its speed and cargo space are somewhat low, but hey! At least you will not end up broken in the middle of nowhere! Coupled with some upgrade cards belonging to Logan Harris, Zoey Shaw or Doctor Feng, you will become unstoppable in the badlands!

 Another social SG is for Facebook. Once we reach 4000 Likes for Galakta Games fan page, you will get an enemy born from any survivor’s worst nightmare! It is up to you to decide what it is going to be. Just stick to the theme, let your imagination fly and our illustrators ready their computers to turn your great suggestions into a horrible, post-apocalyptic reality.

 It’s time to get back to what we already have in the campaign. Since tomorrow you have unlocked another SG – the Muscle Car, our sixth vehicle to take you through ruined Australia. Its greatest strength lies in its bonus Speed (+3 per Fuel spent) and the fact that it can carry up to 3 Fuel. In other words, it can provide up to 13 Movement Points with its Tank full. Even the Bike cannot go that fast! But Fuel is priceless and the Muscle Car breaks easily on cracked Australians highways. It is up to you to decide if you wish to risk that much.

We are left we the next Stretch Goal that we hope you will reach soon. The Call of the Waste free mini-expansion offers 10 beautifully illustrated Landmark cards along with their tokens, giving you a chance to visit the legendary places of broken Australia, such as snow-covered Kosciusko’s Redoubt where a forgotten garrison of soldiers holds their endless vigil or New Canberra, a container town build around a grounded Landing Helicopter Dock. Once unlocked, you will be able to add this as a gaming module to each of your adventures. You will learn about the landmarks’ location during the game and once some of them appear on the board, they will provide you with new, powerful, strategic actions. Additionally, we will embed the landmarks in tales and adventures so that you may delve inside them and learn their secrets.

We thank you again for your unending support and insight. Another day on the road is ahead of us. See you in the Waste!

      @Draxon Fly This is replayable but we provide blank tokens because some narrative entries create new items, companions etc. that are unique for a given adventure plot. You also write down certain information as it may trigger alternative endings or epilogues.

      So wait a min.. Is this like a Legacy game? or is it re-playable?
      I still think 'blank' cards would be cool.

      @Draxon Fly In the game there are 2 elements like this. You have entry tokens that are used when you create a permanent element coming from the narrative and you have Outback Chronicles where you note down key phrases and epilogues that trigger certain extra effects.

      Awesome update.
      What would be cool, if you added in the game, some "Blank cards/charter-sheets" so we can make our own personal stuff up at home to play with.
