Cards, Scoreboard Done! Submission Process Started!

14 likes

Hey Kickstarters, 

Wanted to step outside our normal two week update schedule just to give you an update on the state of the game. 

The cards are done!

As of Monday night we finished up the last of the cards, and as of last night the scoreboard is finished as well. We've started the ball rolling on the submission process and expect all the files to be in their hands soon. Enjoy some of our favorite cards below, we hope that you find your own favorites once the game is in your hands. 

What's Next?

As we begin the pre-production process we will keep you appraised of the developments in production with pictures and information on our normal every-other-week schedule. 

From a development perspective we still have two main obligations to fulfill for some of our higher level backers. The cover backers are going to be receiving custom box art on a pre-production copy of the game with the finished card art. I'm estimating these copies will arrive early to mid May depending on the complexity of the portraits. The other obligation for the deluxe backers and above is to make available the design templates and source files used to create all of the Biergarten cards. This will probably be provided with the next update. 

I will say in advance that I will be including all of the caricatures based upon fictitious people, which should be more than enough to fill any biergarten, but I will NOT be including the likeness of backers unless they'd like to be. . 

That's all for now, hope everyone's doing well and wish us luck as we get this thing sent off.

PS - If you are being drawn into the game, every caricature was used at least twice, and there is at least one fully visible version of each.

      So I never followed up after the first campaign to see if that offer of getting drawn in for free stood. After seeing these cards, man did I screw up because I would have loved to have been in the game! Oh well, maybe next time. Still looking forward to playing it regardless!

      Oooohhh they look great, fun to see and will be fun to play. I'm even more impressed now than I was when I saw your sheets of people designs.
      Now I have to wait patiently for the 'real' cards which will be really hard.
      Thanks for this fabulous idea.

      The cards looks very nice. I wish we could see more of them :-)

      @ Creator: Brilliant, thanks. I never should have doubted you!! The linked card looks great, thanks for including the map! :)

      Wow, there's a lot of folks on these cards! These biergartens are really hopping!

      I printed out the print and play but haven't cut and sleeved it yet, seeing these images makes me more motivated to do so and play a couple of games.

      Hey Nick,
      To answer your question yes, every couple or family appears completely visible and together on at least one card, your caricature was used three times I believe and both you and your wife are fully visible in the other two. http://imgur.com/w2fAYGa

      Thanks for the update - the cards look great!

      Just a question about being drawn into the game. I see my wife but not me in one of the three cards above, and I see also that you said at the end that, "If you are being drawn into the game, every caricature was used at least twice, and there is at least one fully visible version of each."

      By the standard quoted above, it seems possible that I could be visible on a different card but that my wife might not be, meaning that we are both in the game but not together. And being drawn in together is basically the whole point, so I just wanted to make sure that those who had more than one person drawn in will have them visible together on the same card.

      Thanks!
      Nick

      Fantastic! Look forward to the raw files and peaking under the hood so to speak.
