Naming an Alien, Slugs and a sneak peek ?

Hey Everyone,

Our KS campaign is progressing nicely and we are really glad we have the chance of offering you more material for Project: ELITE!

$80K Boss needs a name

We have received lots and lots of suggestions for the name of the Alien Boss that was unlocked when we reached $80k so we now invite you to head over to BGG and vote your favorite names. You have the option of choosing more than one name. Any names that don't win but still get many votes will remain under consideration for future Aliens who may appear ;)

$100k Slugs

We are now heading towards our next stretch goal which is set at $100k. For this important milestone we are offering you  6 awesome miniatures called Slugs! 

Slugs - Special Aliens - 5.8cm/2.3inch tall - 32mm Base
Slugs - Special Aliens - 5.8cm/2.3inch tall - 32mm Base

What are there? Can I pet them ?

No, not really! They are really dangerous and you better stay away. Slugs also come with their own profile card which is shuffled in the Alien deck. If they are spawned, all 6 miniatures appear. They have the "Acts Now" rule which means they also perform their ability right after they spawn. What is it ? They bite! They bite really hard! Each Slug will bite all Characters on adjacent spots on a roll of 3+.

Slugs also have a really cool feature. Their profile movement is 0 ! This mean that when the Action Phase ends and (after performing their ability) we move to the Alien Movement Phase, those guys stand their ground and not move at all!

Ok so, if they don't move, why are they so dangerous?

Slugs do not move during Alien Movement Phase, BUT they can be pushed by other aliens following the standard "Alien pushing another Alien" rules. They can also be moved by a player when an Alien Move symbol is rolled. As a result Slugs can still move on the board pretty fast and because of their large quantity, they will definitely stand in the path of other Alien taking advantage of their movement. We loved Slugs during play-testing and we hope you'll love them as well!

and now... for the last part of this update...

A sneak peek?

Project: ELITE was made in a way that provides huge replayability. However, many of you have been asking for move boards but did not receive much response from us so far. There was a reason for that :) It was because we've been planning that all along but didn't want to spoil the surprise too soon!

We are happy to inform you that within next week an expansion add-on will be available that will include an awesome 2-sided board as well as lots of other cool stuff. As we did with the base game, we plan offering it at a special KS price that will make it an awesome value for money

 We will reveal more about the contents of this expansion in future updates and we can assure you that you will love it!

As always we thank you for supporting our campaign!

      + 1 Will Therion/Turtalon be part of the expansion or bundled with the expansion for a sale price?
      Also will there be a pledge manager or do we have to lock the new stuff in before the end?

      I am more excited about this project than any other, even though I'm backing like 7 others. I'm going to die of waiting for this to be produced.

      Kind of a shame that those sweet looking Slug sculpts are only going to come out when 1 card is drawn, but they sound very unique and interesting!
