Fellow Keepers of Tragdar (Trogdor),

Let's get right to it! The soundboard web app is ready for you to annoy your friends, family, and coworkers with!

http://trogdorboardgame.homestarrunner.com/soundboard/

There are two screens: a quick access menu, and an 'every dang sound' menu. Choose background music and then hit a button when something good or bad happens to get a random quote, sound effect, or short music sting. Or scroll over to the 'every dang sound' menu to choose the exact sounds you want! 

Let us know what you think of it, especially those who have made Print & Play versions of the game. It should auto-format for all devices if you don't want to drag your Compy 386 across the room to your board gaming table.

Next up, here are some prototypes of the enamel pins that were also available in the pre-order store.

We may tweak Strong Bad's eye shinies, which here look like gross multi-pupils.

As you can see, the manufacturer wasn't sure what to do with Loose Leaf Trogdor. We are working on that. For now, this pin gets to join our elite, one-of-a-kind misinterpreted-by-the-manufacturer hall of fame! 

Striped Trogdor and Shark-Tooth Bubs make an unstoppable team!

And last, and most exciting of all... who doesn't love PLASTIC INSERT TRAY PICS!! 

Wait for it... wait for iiiiiiit... ALL ART AND ASSETS NOT FINAL!!
Wait for it... wait for iiiiiiit... ALL ART AND ASSETS NOT FINAL!!

Obviously, this is using all unpainted prototype assets and pieces but this is how the trays will work. For those who backed the meeple-only version, there will be a white cardboard spacer where the tray for the miniatures sits. Cards, tiles, and Trog-Meter on the left. Plastic minis on the right. Meeples in the midst.

Have fun with the soundboard and let us know what you think! My fav is "a sworded affair!"

Fellow K's of T (NOT Kings of Town),

Just a quick reminder about the livestream playthough on Tuesday January 8th at 8pm EST.

You'll find the livestream here on Kickstarter Live:

https://live.kickstarter.com/homestar-runner/live/trogdor-playthrough-with-strong-bad-and-friends

Gentlemen of some distinction! (what type of distinction is anyone's guess)
Gentlemen of some distinction! (what type of distinction is anyone's guess)

Puppet Strong Bad will be joined by flesh jambles Mike Chapman, Lucky Yates, and Homestar-alum Ryan Sterritt as they play a few rounds of Trogdor!! The Board Game (duh). Ryan has never played before so that should be hilarious and Strong Bad has decided to crowdsource all of his moves in the game from chat suggestions so who knows what'll happen! A flood of hijinks awaits!

Keep on B-nating O,

Matt, Mike, Missy

Happy New Year fellow Keepers of Trogdor,

Before we were sucked into the holiday vortex, we received a pre-production copy of the game. It's not the final-final, like, final-final-final thing, but very close. I will now shut up and start showing you GIFs!

Uh oh, we got a Trog-spinner.

We will continue to give you guys production updates and other cool pics as they come in. 

Now here's a very work-in-progress GIF of the companion soundboard web app:

It'll be browser-based and optimized for whatever device you're using. It will have a random mode with big buttons for either "GOOD" or "BAD" things that happen in the game. Mashing one of these buttons will get you a random sound effect, Strong Bad quote, short music sting, or worse! Or for a more curated experience you can access all the sounds and music in a list to pick and choose for yourself.

And last, we're finally getting to another livestream playthrough with this sweet new pre-production copy of the game! Currently scheduled for Tuesday January 8th @ 8pm EST. Join us and help crowdsource Strong Bad's game decisions from the chat section!

Thanks as always for your incredible support, patience, and general awesomeness!

Keep on burninating on,

Mike, Missy, and Matt

Fellow Keepers of Trogdor,

Just a quick update to share some cool stuff! We got unpainted proofs of the plastic miniatures from the Deluxe version of the game and they look amazing! They still have all the character and detail of Rick Van Velsor's original sculpts but it's like someone clicked "enhance" a buncha times! Just like in the very realistic movies!

Enhance! Sharpen edges! Increase beefy arm veins to 200%!

Remember, these are just UNPAINTED proofs. The final minis will be in glorious color.

Strong Bad finally turned in his optional "upgraded" Keeper and Item cards that will be included in every game. WARNING: playing with these cards may break the gameplay in awesome and hilarious ways. Use them at your own risk! 

The Haunchgurlger + The Trog Floaty = a winning combo!

And last, in case you missed it, we enlisted terrifying marshmallow spokesperson Marshie to tell you all about the Stack em to the Heavens "minigame" that comes inside every box of Trogdor!! The Board Game.

Quick production update: we've sent everything to the manufacturer and await a full, boxed evaluation copy of the game! We will share pics and info like crazy as soon as we do!

Keep on Burninating On,

Mike, Missy, and Matt
