New Sprawlopolis Expansion and Button Shy Buzz
Hey Sprawlopolis Backers! It’s Matthew here, the Button Shy Support Guy with a an update to suit all your Sprawlopolis news cravings!
Shipping (Hopefully) Completed
I know this is a daring thing to say, but we think everyone’s rewards have been shipped. There are a couple of you with outstanding Support Tickets that we are working on (you should know who you are) and a few more international backers that have packages waiting in customs. If you have yet to receive or hear from us about your package, please email me directly at email@example.com so we can check on the status and make sure you get your rewards. None of us here at HQ want anyone to miss out on this excellent game.
You Want MORE Sprawlopolis!?
One of the great things about Button Shy Games is the easy process for getting expansions. The Board Game of the Month Club (BGOTMC for short) is a fabulous way to get micro games, expansions to existing games, and even full wallet games. The reason I bring it up is because Sprawlopolis expansion material is coming to the BGOTMC, and soon too! The February BGOTMC package will contain a Sprawlopolis expansion that completely changes the way you play. That’s right, your city is hitting the Beach!
Sprawlopolis: Beaches turns your expanding city into a crammed beach town, with water on three sides of the map. One beach card is flipped and added to your scoring goals as a way to earn some bonus points. The other three are shuffled into the deck, and when you draw a beach card, you must place it on the North, South, East or West end of the map. Only one beach card can go on each side, and before you know it, you'll have set the borders, and cannot build beyond the water line.
For someone that wants to stay on their toes with every draw, and shift their approach to map building in a whole new way, you'll want to check out Sprawlopolis: Beaches.
To ensure yourself a copy of this beauty, visit our Patreon site and sign up for the BGOTMC at the $10 level or above before February 1st. We expect to get the packages containing the Beach into the mail during the month of February.
Two other options are:
Pre-order the expansion by itself:
Pre-order the February package by itself:
Both of those don't get the extra goodies, discounts or the reduced shipping cost that you'll see at the club, but we wanted to make it as available as possible.
We also have a Geeklist on boardgamegeek.com where we post a Sprawlopolis Daily Challenge. Test your skills with specific combinations of cards and post your pictures and score to compare to others. There are over 70 Daily Challenges up there and a new one is posted every weekday. You can find it here.
Button Shy Buzz
We like to share other things that are going on in the world of Button Shy to help keep everyone in the loop. One game coming soon that may be of particular interest to Sprawlopolis players is called Chain Mail. It’s our 2019 Postcard game for the BGOTMC and it plays from 1-4 player co-op, just like Sprawlopolis. Supporting Button Shy at the $5 level or above gets you a new postcard sized map, enemies, and more each month! Details can be found at this Patreon post.
Gone are the days of sure footing. This part of the dungeon makes adventurers cautious with every step, for the next could be quicksand ready to swallow you up. As if that’s not bad enough, nets from the cave’s roof fall upon unsuspecting wanderers, trapping them beneath. Only a small number have explored the Shifting Sands entirely and those that have are either lucky or lying, but they have one thing in common - they’re all rich from its treasures.
That’s all for now. Thank you for your support.
