Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
That's good to know.
@Nebion: The plan is to deliver all the items ordered at the same time, so the backers who pledged for the Deluxe version and something on top of that can expect delivery as soon as the Delux copies are ready.
Question about delivery. If someone ordered multi packs. Ie... Deluxe and some normal and pocket size. Are they all going be shipped at the same time or only deluxe in july, rest earlier
@Nathan: Affirmative! Soon we'll have enough news for another update. :)
Are we still on track?
@Jef Row: +1
Really looking forward to tanking people upside the tank! Keep at it.
Getting excited to receive this game!
@Jonas Thorsén: pvt :)
Might be a dumb question, but where can I see what I ordered and can I still add some addons if I havent already?
Quality over speed please!! Estimates are estimates and things come up. That applies to any industry except with KS the customers are made aware of it. Don’t rush, keep us updated, and I think we’ll be good!
@FG do what you can guys. I prefer to wait and get sure the game will arrive in good quality and condition. Don‘t rush just to accomplish the timeline. Yeah, timeline is important but should not be first priority imo.
If you say honestly you are doing your best thats enough for me. I don‘t care about a few werks or even months delay. Thats Kickstarter right?
How is the PnP coming along? Will it be sent at the same time as the other game versions?
We will try to start with shipping of some game versions in May, and the rest in June (and July for Deluxe). Addresses can be changed until the beginning of shipping (Go to your backed projects > Tank Chess > View pledge > Survey > Edit address).
Seems that the estimated delivery could not be hold. How can I change my address?
We are doing our best to meet your expectations and keep all the promises we made during the campaign.
We expect the first series of tank pieces to be done in a matter of days using the new molding tools. Currently, some fine adjustments are being made and some minor flaws are being amended since those are steel tools intended for mass production and it’s crucial to make every part of it with extreme precision so it could function properly on the long run. The tools are being done in a renowned Serbian company that will also be in charge of the production of the entire series of the plastic pieces. Same as you, we are also pretty anxious and excited to receive the first pieces and we will then, as we already stated, post an official update regarding the subject.
In the meantime, we are working on the remaining elements of the game and we are almost finished with expanding the capacities of our workshop and design studio. You can expect frequent updates as soon as we get some of the game elements completely done.
Nearly 2 months since the last update. That's lame.
Just be patient everyone. The less you worry about the wait, the quicker the wait will pass ;)
KS isn’t a store, after all! Everyone has delays, you just don’t notice it from big publishers because they don’t tell you about them and they just announce the product whenever it’s time
@Nathan: The model is being done along with all the other ones that we haven't presented yet. We are still testing the possible ways to balance it out completely.
@Almghty Muffn, @Ben Corby, @ALL: The molds should be done very soon, as we're told. As soon as we make the first pieces, we'll post the pictures along with the detailed production plan. As we already said, this isn't necessarily a delay as we will recover the time invested into making the molds later on since the production will go much faster than with 3D printers.
Can we have another delay excuse please?
Any updates? Getting close to june without any molds :/
How is the monster model progress and it's game play balancing?
June yet? No?
@all: We have ordered production of boards in one large print office. The first molding tool is almost finished. At the moment we are mostly busy about the serial production and upgrading our workshop, so we will not be able to prepare PnP much sooner than the physical copies. We'll post an update when we have some pictures of tools and printed sheets.
@Ross Markonish: Since you are a backer, you can still order add-ons.
I'm wondering if it is now too late to order Add-Ons and still have them included (for no additional shipping charge) with our original pledge. I know that originally there was a deadline of February 15th (which I missed), but I noticed it is still listed as an option on the Forsage website. Still want to get those Monster pieces! Thanks for any info.
How production looking? Have the molds arrived? :D
Is there any chance of getting some kind of PnP while we wait. I would love to get this on my table sooner then later.
Are all the remaining ones going to be backer-made? if not, could you show the ones that won't be backer-made?
@Edouard Lorenceau: We will certainly present more setups, including the ones suggested by backers, but with the current state of affairs we cannot tell you precisely when, since we have yet to test the majority of the suggested ones and to decide which will enter the brochure.
Will you be showing more of the brochure of setups for the Fun Set? You mentioned in the original post on Jan 4th that there would be more (maybe including backer-suggested ones). Will we see those maps soon?
@Guy Harding: Go to your backed projects > Tank Chess > View pledge > Survey > Edit address.
How can I update my address for delivery?
@Leonardo 'Nerdo' Cerruti: It's still in work. There will be a cardboard sheet in every box, which players would cut by themselves and put under pieces.
@creators: hi! Just curious if you found out an option for cardboard reference stands to put under tanks during gameplay
@Forsage games , I sent you a PM
@Forsage Games - I put in the campign, 54 (game+expansion) + 10 pocket + 7 pocket exp + 4 pocket big map + 22 shipping to spain= for a total of 102$
So as I understand I must pay the difference (I don’t see it yet but I assume that it will be 0$) in yourpage via paypal, correct?
@Forsage Games , I am a bit confused, I did the campaign and I pledge the amount of money necessary for buy de base game +expansion, pocket game+expansion+big board in the pledge manager (or similar platform) that you will going to use.
But the link that you write in the comment below is like some kind of late pledge.
@TobiLee: We are not using an external pledge manager for this project. You can purchase add-ons via PayPal:
When is the pledge manager be open?
@AlmghtyMuffn: We'll post more information in an update soon.
How's production looking? :)
Thanks for the answer.
@Massimo Aversa: We'll use the best option we manage to find. We can't promise yet that it will be neoprene, but we are researching for it.
For deluxe size board, can you make a neoprene or latex playmat ? I'm afraid that plastic canvas can make folds.
@Alyogali: For now you can order the extra pieces only in red/blue color.
We are searching for options about army green and brown. It is very hard to find such colors for 3D print, in most cases it is available only in basic green and dark brown. We'll let you know if we find something.
@Forsage Games : I had forgotten that the stretch goals were included in the game or in the fun set...
So if I order a pocket extra pieces and a pocket fun set pieces, I could ask to have them in army green and in brown, just by paying them with paypal at email@example.com ?
@Forsage Game : is it really possible to get the extra set of pieces in the colors of our choice ? Even for the pocket game ?
If I'd like to have a set with brown and army green tanks (would fit the game better than blue and red), I just have to pay it according to the instructions on this page (https://www.gamesforsage.com/paypal-instructions) and say which colors I want ?
Is there a way to get also the stretch goals in those colors ?
@Leon Samadi: We are using upgraded Malyan M150 printers. We can publish the general settings used for printing of tank pieces.
1) Even without additional pieces, 4 player scenarios can be played that each player has the same pieces.
Yes, additional sets can be in blue/red colour. You just need to indicate it in a message.
2) The rules for the Monster are not finished yet. If you want to play 4 player scenario with Monsters, you would need 4 Monsters.
@Creator - Sorry if this was answered before...
1) If I buy the additional set of pieces (Pocket Game and Pocket Fun), I'll be able to play a 4-players game with each player using exactly the same pieces? If so, these "additional sets" could be sent in other colors (red and blue, for example)?
2) How many "Monsters" do I need to play a game using their own rules? This number will be the same for any game variation (2 or 4 players)?
