Extra Cards, New Reviews, and AMA Tonight
First Stretch Goal Smashed.
It's only been a week and you not only made sure we were funded, but you've also hit our first stretch goal. This whole week has been crazy and we are still blown away by your support. We're going to be adding four more common cards (one of each color) and four home cards, the first solid color home cards in the game. They will add a new layer of replay-ability and strategy.
Next up we'll be increasing the quality of all the cards up to Ivory Core. This thicker cardstock is ideal not only for longevity, but their thickness makes them better for use with our "tile-laying" mechanic.
We had two reviewers post yesterday and both really seemed to like it. Please check them out for yourself.
"A beautiful day sat outside a German pub having a delicious beer with good friends is a rare treat, ... and what will we be playing? Well, this game is pretty much the perfect option" - Little Metal Dog Show
"The idea of a quick fire game with similar mechanics [as Alhambra and Carcassonne], based around beer seemed like a dream come true. That’s what Biergarten brings to the table.”- Whiskey and Board Games
We're about to launch our official AMA on reddit at 7pm CST and watch me try to talk about game design, brewing, and successfully re-launching a campaign
Finally a quick note about being drawn into the game and I felt this a little bit of an explanation. At the end of the kickstarter will be sending out a survey to all backers asking for information like your address, how many copies you ordered, etc. At that point we will also give those backers who want to be drawn in the game a place to send us a photo or two of themselves for reference when they are drawn into the game. For those of you who are really putting thought into how you want to be drawn in let me show you our simple guide for submissions.
The only other thing we ask is no weapons, no political slogans, nothing overly crude. This is a Biergarten that enjoys a good time, but also enjoy it's peace.
That's everything from me, keep spreading the word! Prost!
