      I'm so glad you did this Kickstarter, Jamal. It's been so much fun to watch (and to play the game of course!) Good luck on your next thing!

      Can't wait to watch the progress of this between now and the finale! Great game!

      New update posted. And... another one coming soon re: the Score Track addition to the game. Stay tuned...

      A great game for adults to play with their kids. Teaches strategy, addition and planning. A fabulous game for family night here in Utah.

      This game is a hoot, a lot of family fun to be keeper of the Crown. Proud backer from MO.

      Thanks for becoming Backers -- Tiberiu, Judy and Benita!

    7. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      @Rando -- Thanks. I think we were trying too much to play up the "kids" aspect of the game. Keep the Crown is a light strategy game -- one that I hope will be enjoyed by adults and kids alike.

      The cover image is much better

      Thanks for joining the team you guys. I will be posting the first update in the next few days. Thanks everybody!

    12. David M. Frakes on

      I have spent many hours playing this fun new game. Happy to be a backer! Good Luck!

    13. Andy Dunn on

      Good luck, Mr. Green! I can't wait to play so I hope you hit the goal soon!

    14. Mary Green on

      We have been happily playing a prototype of your game, and now it's finally nearing production. Hope it gets funded!

    15. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      Thanks so much, David! I appreciate the help spreading the word.

      @Dheydre -- thanks for your support. The Mini-game playing chips are made of 1inch, 7gram poker chips with permanent-adhesive stickers. Thx.

    18. Dheyrdre Machado on

      Hi Jamal!
      The pieces of the Mini-Game tier are going to be glued its components?

    19. Michael on

      Thanks. I'll just adjust things to get the very neat mini version with a royal add on. Hope that's okay. I can always pick arrange to pick them up.

    20. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      Heya Michael! It was great to play the game with you at Strategicon and thanks so much for your support. Re: combo with the mini-edition... The "mini" version is unique in that it is hand-crafted and thus able to deliver much earlier than either of the manufactured versions. This complicates the shipping equation when trying to combine them as it's really not possible to discount if one still wants the "mini" version before the holidays. I hadn't thought about combining at the later date -- but I might do that if there is enough interest.

    21. Michael on

      Great to see this available after playing a challenging game with you. Will you offer a Royal + Mini tier?

    22. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      One other note that might be missed at first glance: chips are removed from the board when a player makes a score. So, the ebb and flow of the game is one where the board begins to fill... then frees up... then fills again more, etc. 148 was a great number so that it is rare to run out of chips -- even with 6 players.

    23. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      I used to be a math geek -- so I studied the various possible frequency of chips for months before settling in on the final count. That included a bunch of play-testing with different groups with different counts just to make sure the "math" equated to what was more important -- a fun game! And technically... there are 148 pieces and 2 extras per set.

    24. Jamal Jamie Green Creator on

      Thanks, Rando -- I really appreciate all my Day 1 Backers!

    25. Rando Commando on

      I watched video. It is like a bejewled blitz scrabble mashup, but what is the reason for 150 chips and only 36+2 spaces? I am sure there IS a reason.
      I am also wondering how many points can be made with so many colors/shapes. It seems to me that only gems and no coins would be sufficient with the amount of spaces to play them on.

    26. Rando Commando on

      Looks pretty cool. I hope this catches on.

      I think a new cover image would help. The game looks nothing like I expected. Maybe just a picture of what the box will look like?
