Dungeon World Encounter Decks News

After many attempts to find a better pricing model for our cards we have decided that it might be more important at this point to just get the cards out there as they are. So we are starting to prepare them for a print-on-demand service (DriveThru Cards is our preference at this point) and make them available for you all. The plan is to put up the utility decks (Items, Traps, Magical Properties) in July with the monster cards following. 

This will allow us to get the cards out there and hopefully give us some valuable feedback for a deluxe edition (better art, more cards, better layout) crowdfunded in the future. It also will allow us to move onto an RPG project we've been itching to finish for a few years now. 

I'll post again when the cards are available. 

Thank you again for your support,

Frank & Richard for Dungeon World Encounter Decks

We Will Be Back!

It is time for some hard decisions. When we started putting our Dungeon World Encounter Cards together we wanted to produce something awesome befitting our love for the Dungeon World game. We started putting this campaign together about a year and a half ago: contacting printers, paying obscene amounts for samples from China, getting our prototype cards out there (which we realize we should have done more of even though printing the cards ourselves is quite time consuming and costly), and generating buzz online and at gaming conventions. At that time the Canadian dollar was almost on par with the US dollar which meant we were looking at funding around $8K with decks being much cheaper than our final numbers would allow. This price difference has really hurt us. It turns what should be a great affordable product into a boutique item. We decided that we should at least put it out there and see if we could make it work. Our biggest concern at this point is that if we just limp over the finish line we’ll not really be able to do justice to the cards we want to create. At a minimum we want to ship the 160 card deck and at least one 60 card deck of utility cards. Ideally we would prefer to ship at least 120 cards worth of new monsters and utility cards in addition to the base 160 card deck. We were hoping that the potential for such a large amount of cards would overcome the sticker shock many potential backers faced with our campaign.

We launched the campaign and were encouraged by the initial response. At the same time we continued to work on a way to get the printing done more economically. We figured that if we could cut the price point on a successful campaign, we’d simply pass on the savings in the form of unexpected bonus cards. We also knew that if our campaign was not going to fund adequately hunting for a better printing option would set us up for a relaunch. The good news is that we think we have a solution. This new printer gets us closer to the price point we originally targeted without sacrificing quality. The one snag is that it would change up the shipping plans, meaning re-running a lot of our numbers and handling distribution entirely from Canada. As of this message we are eagerly awaiting quotes on printing and shipping/importing cards from this new supplier. If those numbers look good, we will simply relaunch the campaign in January 2016. 

So what does this mean for you, backers of this campaign? 

First off, Richard and I would like to thank you for your support and believing in this project. Many of you spread the word about our campaign. Many of you sent encouraging notes and asked great questions helping us create an even better product. A number of you even pledged more than your pledge level required, showing us how much you believe in this project. All of this is very encouraging. Our hope is that you will all be among the first backers for our project when we relaunch in January. I will send out an email just before we go live. Thank you again for your support. 

We will be back!

Want to learn more about the project? Cos Culture Magazine's Nikko Marie interviewed us on a Google+ Hangout tonight. She also suggested that we run a game via Hangouts this coming week. It is reading week for me so I'm up for it. If you want to be part of that game let me know over on Google+ (I'm encountercards@gmail.com). We'll probably limit it to 5 players and I'll put a date and time up soon as we figure it out with Nikko.

Google+ Hangout!

We've finally nailed down a date and time to hangout with Nikko from Cos Culture Magazine! Nikko is going to ask us any questions you have about our cards, the campaign, and playing Dungeon World. We hooked Nikko on Dungeon World at the Awesome Adventure Academy last year. Should be an awesome time. We are starting the Hangout at 21:15 EST this Thursday night.
