      Is there a chance of possibly sharing some more card spoilers while we wait for the game to ship out? :3 <3 <3

      I hate to be that guy, but when, approximately, will the games and/or add-ons be shipped?

      @Willysilver, that's a cool idea for a future wall scroll idea. I like it and would put it on my x-mas list for certain.

    4. Jonathan Olsson on June 15, 2017

      Namath is a good and logical counterpart to Tingsel in the expansion deck:)

    5. Willysilver on June 14, 2017

      I forgot to ask, will the Dreamkeepers/Skirmish logo be on the shirt/hoodie, either on the front below the image, or on the back?.

    6. Willysilver on June 14, 2017

      Just a thought. This may be outside the realm of possibilities, but here is my suggestion. The recent 4K pic from the short Skirmish video of Lilith and Vi standing on the rock would look awesome on the wallscroll, as well as the t-shirt and hoodie. I'm thinking of printing that on premium glossy photo paper and framing it for may wall of art. Also, if offered as an item in the Vivid store, I would buy that in a heartbeat. Anyone else have opinions on this?

    7. Willysilver on June 11, 2017

      I'm curious about the 5 top stretch goals and if anything may be done about getting some of them funded. Perhaps an anonymous contributor will fund the pure metal counters and perhaps the two ARG apps as well? Or have them available thru other means of funding (small kickstarter for those, sale thru Vivid store)? I would sure like to see at least those funded, as the developers have already demonstrated the ARG app. Would be nice to get the poster and extended original art (100%) as well, but we know David and Liz are very busy building everything as it stands. With that said, thanks for all of your hard work and dedication toward this fantastic project!

      So since we missed the counters goal were they off the shelf ones or going to be made for the game? Because even though we aren't getting them boxed in I would still love to have a set of them if we could know where to get them

      @Garrett Simpson
      Considering that there are eight decks (10 with expansion decks) of 20 cards each:
      There should be 160 (200) cards in the game. 168 (210 w/Expansion) including heroes. 176 (218 w/Expansion) with the guest character cards.
      All in all, it seems like there will be about 80 (100 w/Expansion) new art cards. 96 (118 w/Expansion) counting hero and guest cards.

      Now I realize that I did a bunch of math in my excitement. The inner nerd is clawing to get out!

    11. YNK on June 10, 2017

      I so wish I lived in USA. I would have to pay so much for the expedition.

    12. TDP on June 9, 2017

      WOOHOO!!! What a time to be a backer!!! Congratulations on reaching those glorious expansion decks!!!!! I can't wait to see who the hero deck will be!!!

      @Shannon Hamilton

      They likely just haven't updated the picture yet. The owner of the account does it manually

    14. Shannon Hamilton on June 9, 2017

      I noticed we've past the $49k mark, but the related stretch goal hasn't unlocked yet. Is this because shipping costs doesn't contribute to stretch goals? Also, if someone backs by paypal, will that show up by unlocking stretch goals?

    15. YNK on June 9, 2017

      People, after reading the last actu, I have a question: What is a 'survey' and how does it work?

    16. Garrett Simpson on June 9, 2017

      Say for those of us getting original art how many pieces would you roughly estimate would be in the pool to be given out now that we have 50% original card art?

    17. Garrett Simpson on June 9, 2017

      Including the PayPal I think we can safely say this game got 100% more bitchy! Here comes the first ever Tinsel merch,a small revelation of the extensive line there'll be when we're bigger lol (Or she gains any actual fans among the readers)

    18. YNK on June 9, 2017

      For the mob rule, do we have to chose one of the leaders? If yes, I'd like Wisp, if no, I want Namah!

    19. Spencer B. on June 7, 2017

      @Jonathan Olin, you can change your tier any time before the campaign ends.

    20. YNK on June 7, 2017

      I finally backed it! *is happy about himself* A question though: if we unlock a reward available in a tier I didn't backed, can I change tier? Or do something that will allow me to have the tier I want to change to?

    21. Spencer B. on June 7, 2017

      @Chris D. There will not.

    22. Christopher D.

      Will there be any more Rules/Gameplay videos posted before the end of the campaign?

      I printed a poster and placed it on a wall in my school a few days ago. I'm hoping that the poster will give you guys a boost but I don't know how long it will stay up there. (I did it without permission) A few of my friends showed inturesting but sadly nobody was jumping at the sound of it. We'll see how things go however.

    24. Shannon TJ on June 4, 2017

      Can we break $48,000??? I hope so.

    25. Conor Ludwig on June 3, 2017

      oh I almost forgot a good place to sell SKIRMISH at is Modern Myths in downtown Northampton Massachusetts.

    26. Conor Ludwig on June 3, 2017

      use this question in your QNA 3

    27. Conor Ludwig on June 3, 2017

      Hay David with the mob rule stretch. Can I chose who I want on my computer desktop digital skin ex. my costume dreamkeeper of one that is all ready out ex VI or Lilith.

      Are characters dice holder figures exclusive for this Kickstarter or will available later in future? Thank you for time

      Cmon guys, get the word out! I want Tinsel unlocked so I can have Lillith punch her in the boob. After all the crap in the prologue and the graphic novel....she deserves it!

      I'd also like to add that a villain you genuinely hate is a well constructed villain. Dreamkeepers is very well done!

    30. Adam Wyatt Miller on May 21, 2017

      I joined the boardgamegeek thing from the last comment, when the how to play vid is uploaded, you may want to add it to the that as well, could generate interest there.

      The Dreamkeepers SKIRMISH game page is now live @
      Head on over, become a fan, and show Skirmish some BGG love.

      @Creators – Would you be able to upload some images and videos to the page so we have something to ‘thumb’ and generate some BGG buzz?

      on May 14, 2017

      Will the insert be able to hold sleeved cards?

      When we unlock the expansion, can it also be offered as an add-on? So tier 4 backers don't have to pay $70 extra to get the expansion if the expansion is all they are interested in.

    33. Spencer B. on May 13, 2017

      @Christopher D- Spencer here from EPF Studios. We are currently working on a detailed rules video, as there've been many requests for it. We can post a rules document alongside that. As far as gameplay goes, we're hoping to stream a game or two, but we haven't finalized those plans, so stay tuned.
      The copy of the game you see in the video is the only professionally manufactured copy at this point. The game still needs some fine-tuning to ensure maximum replayability, and that's part of why the release is set for march 2018, we don't want to send the game off to the backers until we're certain it's as fun and engaging as we can make it.

      @Creator – Congrats on funding and hitting 4 stretch goals. Skirmish looks like an interesting take on Battle Card/MTG-type games. I am not familiar with Dreamkeepers so I will rely on game play to help me decide whether to stay in for a full game.
      Will you be posting a current draft of the rules to read through?
      Will you be posting how to play/gameplay videos before the campaign ends?
      Are there copies of Skirmish out for review?

    35. Elizabeth Johnston on May 12, 2017

      this is awsome! great job everyone, now lets blast through those stretch goals and make Dave a very busy man!

      Congrats on reaching funding level

    41. Garrett Simpson on May 12, 2017

      The fans did vote,but although we love Mace he didn't have a shot at this point in the story as he might not be as fun. Really excited to see what we choose for the art stuff like wallscrolls!

    42. Adam Wyatt Miller on May 11, 2017

      I believe the characters were chosen by public vote, but I'm not sure

    43. Shannon TJ on May 11, 2017


      Mace probably doesn't have a deck because his power is currently unknown. Each DreamKeeper card has a normal side and a "power side", so that'd be a problem.

    44. Thomas Lee Bunting
      on May 11, 2017

      Oh, also congratulations. I suspect you will likely meet the Kickstarter goal by the end of the day, and even if you don't given how close it is pretty clear you will reach it quickly.

    45. Thomas Lee Bunting
      on May 11, 2017

      Thanks, I wanted to know for the figurines. Particularly glad to see Lilith, as she is my favorite, as well Vi. Disappointed somewhat Mace wont have his own deck, as to Namah to an extent.

      Any particular reason they wont get their own deck?

    46. Shannon TJ on May 11, 2017

      Things are shaping up to be GRUNNDERFUL : )

    47. David & Liz Lillie 5-time creator on May 11, 2017

      The leader-hero characters in the game that have their own decks are Igrath, Bast, Lilith, Vi, Tendril, Ravat, Scuttles, and Wisp. 8 )

      Timing is key I guess. I landed what I wanted though. Tier seven elite. Can't wait for the updates and for the goals to be reached!
