I'm glad this has taken off for you. I did read that you'd quit your job to pursue your dream.
I'm backing because this particular idea seems to be very good. I can't think of too many games about chaining actions. The only two that come to mind are Chess and Shadows Over the Empire. The way you've implemented it in this game provide a lot of variety, and should mean that even people who become old pros at it will still have fresh challenges with new players rather than dominating every game. It seems well-balanced.
And it helps that you picked eye-catching art that suits the style of the game (classic). I first saw this game on boardgamegeek before the Kickstarter campaign began. I said "That's beautiful. I wonder what it's about and when it came out because I haven't seen it." Then I clicked the link and read about the game. I decided it was just the sort of thing that I liked, and the fact that it seemed it would play well with three people put it on my absolutely must-haves list, since I most often play with three. The fact that it can be played with 2 or in teams with 4 is also appealing. Lots of variety. So I put it on my wish list and kept my eyes open, waiting for the campaign I knew was coming.
I'm sure you'll have both good ideas and bad ideas, but this was definitely a good one, and I think it fills a niche that few other games do. I also think there's a very good chance that it can sustain a company as you experiment with other ideas and plot expansions and new games.
Congratulations! Great stuff that this project has taken off! Grabbed the PNP and will be occupying our nights with that until all my wooden goodness gets here.
Just a question about the mystery tile. Since it doesn't get removed when it's unraveled, do druids on it still get exiled, or do they "move" to the site on the other side?
Well done! Congrats on a successful leap of faith.
Well done! I'm sure many of us will wait with baited breath for your next project. Enjoy the success! We're all very happy backers :-)
So is this the start of your board game career? Will the name David Chott become a new name in the game industry up there with William Attia and Uwe Rosenberg? I hope so!
Congrats on everything so far: beautiful game that has a lot of potential. I hope it is as balanced and varied from game to game as it seems like it could be. My one request is a small box: just big enough to hold the actual components. I game this attractive and about Druids ought to be highly portable so it can be played out in nature.
I sure hope we hit the 150, would love to see weekly lore about the world. I love world creation and really getting to know the universe that one is playing around in with these games :D
Additionally I just have to say again and again that all of the art on this game is truly splendid.
Congrats and hooray!
Congratulations on how well the campaign is doing! I don't usually back games without trying a PnP these days, but I enjoyed the puzzles so much that I decided to take a flyer on it.
Once a week until the game ships is pretty ambitious! I'm curious about the lore, but wouldn't want writing it to become a chore.
