Update #17

Very Important: Please check your names!

Hello, everyone -

The publisher has recently put a final version of the rules on their website. Unfortunately, it appears that some names were typed up incorrectly, and that other names are missing entirely.

I would like to correct this problem if at all possible. Would you please do me a favor and have a look at the final rules document on numbskullgames.com under "Divided Republic" and make sure that:

a) Your name appears

b) Your name is spelled correctly

If there are errors, please contact me here within the next forty eight hours if at all possible. I'm trying to get the publisher to include an errata sheet, but the printing process has already started, and we need time to get it in, if at all possible.

-Alex

      How's the publishing going? When can we backers in the U.S. expect to get our copy of the game?

      Only just saw this. I wanted my name, not my handle in there, but it's all good.

      "Jon Hathor" should be "John Hathorn". If you don't get this in time for the errata, I'm sure I'll live :)

      Hi Alex. My name, Adam Koehler, did not appear in the rules booklet. I don't really mind not being mentioned actually, but this does seem like an opportune time to double check that you have me down as a backer who will be sent a copy of the game. That is something I care a great deal about!

      Creator Thomas Gore on March 6, 2012

      My name is missing, as well: Thomas Gore. But if the publisher is making waves about fitting all the names in the rulebook, I won't be bothered if mine gets cut. No worries.

      Creator Todd on March 6, 2012

      My name is mispelled as well. "Todd Lang" is correct. The current spelling "Todd Liang" is incorrect.

      Thanks.

    CIVIL WAR HISTORIAN: At this level, we are going to offer you an extra incentive to pledge a little extra to help us reach our goal, now so tantalizingly close! If you pledge at this level, in addition to the benefits of the John Cabell Breckinridge level, you will get a really cool opportunity: DESIGN A CARD. All copies of Divided Republic acquired via Kickstarter will receive an exclusive bonus: an Advanced Deck, which will add sixteen new cards to the game and allow for even more variability and options. If you pledge at this level YOU will be able to design one of these cards, with the help of the designer (yours truly.) You'll get a design credit in the rulebook, and when we create an entry for the Advanced Deck on BGG, we'll even add you to the list of designers! Because this will take a little bit of time to playtest, the Advanced Deck won't be available as soon as the base game, but it will arrive with our backers as soon as it's ready to go! Note: As a courtesy to our 250 backers, we'll be offering this opportunity as well. If that means that we somehow end up with more than sixteen cards - so be it!

    SECRETARY WILLIAM H. SEWARD: By request of interested retailers, and arrangement with the publisher, I'm now able to a special package for retailers interested in carrying Divided Republic. By pledging at the SEWARD level, you will receive six (6) signed copies of Divided Republic, six sets of Meeples, and six sets of the limited edition busts normally available only at the $250 ABRAHAM LINCOLN level.

When they're gone, they're gone. This will be the -only- way for retailers to get the limited edition busts and Abeples, as all others will be going to individual supporters.
