The Great Big Update That Can Get Us Funded! Add-ons and Stretch Goal Info!
Hey Ski Club!
This is the update I promised would be going soon! We're still cruising along and adding backers but this one has the potential to get us funded so we can get working on Stretch Goals! I'm talking about ADD-ONS!
We've got three different items you can add to your order by manually adjusting your total when finalizing your pledge. Just choose the base pledge level you want (1 copy or the 5 copy package) and add the amount for each item you want to add to your order. We'll be collecting the specifics about your order in a survey at the end of the campaign so please make sure to check your math twice so we don't have to sent the Yeti to collect from you later!
Here we go!
If half of our current backers add just 1 of these items we'll be funded in no time!
So let me give you the quick run down for each item:
1. Ski Lodge Play Mat (art not final) - Adam has been busting out some awesome work to get this artwork ready, it's still a work in progress but you can see that it will ad some wonderful flavor to your Avalanche at Yeti Mountain experience! The top windows give you a place to set up the draw deck and discard piles while the bottom piles set you up for playing the advance drafting variant that you can read about in the rules or in Matt's playthrough videos. There is even a place for the Speed Limit Cards! Man, those skiers sure look like they are having FUN! This thing will feature a fabric playing surface with 1/8 inch rubber backing and it's 10 inches by 15 inches! Matt was so excited about the playmat idea that he started working on a Ski Lodge Variant (we'll tell you more about that in the future). You don't need the playmat for the new variant but it will be cooler if you do!
2. Fidelitas - This is the first game from Green Couch Games designed by myself (Jason Kotarski) and Philip duBarry (designer of Revolution!, Spirits of the Rice Paddy, and tons more cool games!). It's a super fun little game for 1-4 players that plays in about 20 minutes. It's about playing action cards to manipulate the positions of diferent characters around a medeival city to meet hidden objectives so you can prove you have what it takes to lead the revolution against the corrupt crown! Cool, eh? You can read reviews and get more info here.
3. Best Treehouse Ever- That's right our brand new game about building the best treehouse ever by Scott Almes (Tiny Epic, Harbour, Loop, INC, and lots more!) This one isn't even in stores yet. It's actually on the boat headed to our fulfillment warehouse from the manufacturer! This preorder is the first opportunity to get the game after it goes out to Kickstarter backers! We'll ship these as soon as we finish shipping Kickstarter copies. You can read all about here. Adam McIver (the Avalanche at Yeti Mountain illustrator) also did art for Best Treehouse Ever so be sure to take a good look at his great work.
Note: All Add-ons have shipping worked into the price! Also note that the play mat will ship with Avalanche at Yeti Mountain. Best Treehouse Ever and Fidelitas will ship shortly after the close of the campaign (likely in November).
We also want to give you a look at the rest of the cards from the first stretch goal that we announced in the last update!
That's something to get excited about, right?!
Thanks again for all of your help with this project! I hope you'll consider helping us take it to the next level so we can fund this thing soon and have the chance to add even more value to Avalanche at Yeti Mountain!
Let's get the word out about this one and see how fast this campaign can snowball!
Jason (and Matt)
