Got the game. Really enjoy it. Nice work!
@ Sterling, Will do!
@ Paul, Thank you! It's great seeing hard work pay off. Enjoy the game!
Warring Kingdom has arrived safely, and my initial reactions were very positive. The cards are very nice, with good feel and stiffness. The rules booklet is gorgeous and very well done. The box is quite thick and should be more durable than most game boxes, but it could use a little something in the corners, like glue or tape, to bind the rather loose sides together better. All of the promo and expansion cards fit in the box with room to spare and the dice, which have great colors, fit in the two center slots so they don't bounce around in the box.
Overall my initial impressions are that this is a very professionally designed and executed game and I would really like to congratulate Harry on meeting his timing target and producing a game with very high quality components. I look forward to playing this soon and I will be on the look out for the next project. Thanks for all your hard work, it really shows.
Got my copy. Harry, you should add the expansion to BGG. I use it to keep track of my library.
You've received one of the special mirror-friendly copies! ~20 backers received that, have nice uses in certain game closets/ storefronts.
The side image, obviously the most crucial of all (well, maybe except the front), should be nice, bold and clear for all games.
Thanks for the answers. For your second printing, did you notice the words Warring Kingdom on the "top side" and "bottom side" of the box are written as if in a mirror? Looks like the art needs to be flipped around.
@Tsara, Yes! Put questions up, either me or maybe other players will surely answer!
@Harry If we have rules questions, are you still paying attention to the rules forum on boardgame geek?
@ Robert It's missing the watermark. I noticed it right away too....alas, last second Kickstarter cards :(
Other than that (and one text box on the bottom left corner of the rule book was slightly cut out), there are no other issues I'm aware of. Will fix in the next print!
@Tsara Glad you received it well! The component quality should be top notch (cards are linen finished, box is strong enough to withstand a nuclear war)
The Civilin card Orator doesn't have the watermark the others have. Is it a special card or just missing the watermark?
Just got mine in the mail today! It looks fantastic! Really happy to see this finished product! Thank you so much for the game. :) I'm looking forward to playing it with my gaming group.
SPEAK OF LOGAN, EVERYONE, head over to his newest project, (which only has TWO DAYS LEFT!) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/knightgames/build-your-own-the-red-dragons-lair-dungeon-crawl for a fun quick game!!
HAIL SIR Harry!!! I got my game and it looks fantastic!!! NICE job sir!! Well done!!! :)
Good questions! Here are some good answers to go with them!
Cards will be standard poker size (63.5mm x 88.9mm)
The base game will include 220 cards to be sleeved, assuming you don't want to sleeve reference, castle etc. The expansion adds 32 more cards for sleeving.
Do we have a card size and number of cards . I am looking to do a large order for card sleeves and would like to add the sleeves for this game.
Thanks Than :)
Congrats Harry! This is a great project, and I'm happy to see the successful launch.
WOOT! 163 BACKERS, $9073, 100% enthusiasm! Y'all amazin'.
Haha, while having an extra card will be fun, I do have high hopes for the theme song. How many games have its own song? Have to appreciate the uniqueness!
Can we make Mage goal 2 and the song goal 3??
Congrats on the funding can't wait to get my copy!!
Another stretch goal hit! 36 minutes left, the great mage card is still within reach!
Thank you Johnny! I had a blast demoing the game. Quite excited to deliver it to all fellow gamers!
Harry, playing this with you at PAX East was a highlight of the con that I consider among my favorites! I'm so happy that you're funded now and can begin to bring this awesome game to the next level!
Thanks Steve :) couldn't have done it without you.
Congratulations! *throws confetti*
Thank you djg, Greg, and Matt!!!
dj grandpa bcked and approved.. harry and I had a lot of fun on the crib.. enjoy.. and congrats on funding.. http://tinyurl.com/k84442z
Congratulations, Harry! So I'll expect my game delivered in person later today?
Muahaha. Winning pledge made by me!
Was cool seeing you at pax, Harry. You gonna be at post pax board game night?
Yes, but 7902 is better:)
@ Sean, you hinted me down! So you've finally tried the game yourself; thoughts? Living up to your high expectations?
$7777 seems auspicious potentially...
I submitted the link, but I don't see it neither. Must have put it in a wrong place? Any BGG expert who can submit the link correctly?
Also, thumb all the videos, images, and forum entries on the BGG page. Images especially because a bunch of views and thumbs can get those images onto the main page.
Harry, there's still no link from BGG to the KS page. That might also help drive some traffic here when people click on the game page on BGG. There is a link to the game's Facebook and website in the WebLinks section, but that should probably also be in the main Information section at the top of the game page.
Share share share! Like us on Facebook and share some more! I'll do my part by demoing the game at Pax today so people can get a first-hand impression of how awesome the game is!
Let's make this happen TODAY, shall we?
Why is it taking so long for this to fund. So close...
Sooooo close! I want this game!
Thank you, and I'm on it!
I've noticed a few things about the BGG entry for Warring Kingdom.
1. There's no link to the Kickstater page on the BGG page. Often, games on Kickstarter use the "Website" or "Pre-Order Link" as a way to get potential backers to the KS page. You might want to consider updating that information.
2. There are quite a few images available here on KS, but not many of those are on BGG. If some of those made it to BGG, and backers thumbed those images, they might end up in the Images section on the BGG home page. I can't speak for everyone, but I've found many new games because I first saw an interesting image in that section -- and then #1 becomes even more important for getting backers here.
3. There are two videos here on KS that are not on BGG. The gameplay video especially would be helpful for people wanting to learn more about Warring Kingdom.
Just my 2 (or maybe 3) cents. This looks like a fantastic game, and I really want to get that Great Helm!
Thank you Joel! Share the word~!!
i just joined. i really hope it funds.
I'm sure we will:) Question is when, and the earlier, the more time I have to develop most value to everyone, create stretch goals and balance and tested new cards etc. So fingers crossed!
Almost there!! I hope we make it!!
Sorry James. I've been trying to keep the shipping cost down, but have not yet found a way to do that. The $15 PnP includes the expansion, so that's a great way to get the full experience at low cost if you are interested. Do let me know if you have any other thoughts, and I'll let everyone know if I find a cheaper shipping agent!
I think the shipping costs are going to stop me on this one. I have done others from America and ones that I believe would be much much heavier, but the shipping costs have been more reasonable. I will keep an eye on things anyway and see what happens.
Australia shipping is quite expensive. What can help bring cost down per game is if you buy in bulk; for example, the international special has game+expansion+shipping at $60 a piece, with all the digital goods throw in there for free. You can add $25 to that pledge level for a playmat, if you want. In other words, instead of $115 for one set, you can get 3 for $205. You can also opt for no play mat at a lower shipping cost (the play mat is high durable material and is surprisingly heavy)
I hope that helps!
I am from australia and I was looking at the game + expansion + playmat level
Shipping depends on where you are; which country will the game be shipping to? The international shipping for the game starts at $15, and may go up a bit as you add more stuff in the mix (play mats, expansions etc.) I can clarify and give you the exact cost if you can let me know which country you want to ship to and which tier you are thinking of. Note that the international special tier includes all shipping charges already.
Hi There, I am a little confused about shipping in the description it says $45 while with the shipping date it says $25 for outside us. Which one is correct? $45 seems very steep for a card game.
Thanks Brett, keep these great ideas coming everyone!
