Hello Travelers, Explorers, Expeditionists, Adventurers and Pioneers, 

This is a short update to notify you all about the new Stretch Rewards you managed to unlock and also to provide you with information of what you need to do to help us unlock 2 more Social Stretch Rewards!


Stretch Goal Unlocked!

Having surpassed $61K, you have unlocked 2 New Child Traits, awesome! The 'Strong Genes' Child Trait is one of the 2 you are getting, and allows you to live and play through old age more easily, as 1 less Stress will be required from the player that has this Child Trait for each round of the Old Age! Really helpful, isn't it?

After helping us reach the $64K Stretch Goal, you are also getting 2 New Life Goals, one of which will be the 'Passionate' Life Goal : the player that manages first to get 3 projects of the same category is the one who wins the Life Goal. Let's see who is the most passionate of them all!

2 New Social Stretch Goals!

Great to see your response on Instagram, where we are less than 70 followers away from unlocking the first Social Stretch Goal! Congrats everyone, hopefully it will be unlocked soon! :)

For the next 2 Social Stretch Goals, you will be getting 2 more Group-Buys once they are unlocked! Here are the details of what needs to be done in order for you to see your KS3 decks increased by 2 more cards:

Twitter Social Stretch Goal: If we reach 4600 followers on Twitter, you will get the "Real Estate" Group-Buy Item!

Facebook Social Stretch Goal: If this post gets shared 50 times, you will get the "Crowdfunding" Group-Buy Item!

Help us unlock even more material for your game! 

Thank you very much for your continuous support!

      Ah, keep in mind I am just trying to absorb the rules; I'm new to the game. So the rest CAN be that powerful!

      To be equivalent to current trait, this would require this trait to start with 0 ressources (most trait start with about 9-10 ressources, which is 3 hoursglasses). So a slower start, but a stronger end.

      I did some maths. Without heart cards, resting or not, this gives 5 extra hourglass (vs someone without this trait). With an heart cards, without resting, this gives 1 extra hourglass, with resting, this gives 4 extra hourglass (vs someone without this trait and with an heart card).

      I agree the 1 less stress with rest does seem overpowered. Hopefully there is a stipulation on the card, something that says you can't take the rest act?

      @John C, that’s exactly what it does, change stress to 2,5,8. Which could definitely mean 2 extra rounds for the person with that card easily. Most people will die from 3,6 stress. This player has the ability to rest after getting 2 stress as it won’t put them in he next bracket, completely negating the 2 stress. If they have just 1 heart, not even the final 8 stress would kill them with another rest after the 5 stress. It’s pretty OP, considering that anyone else trying to get to that age will need to complete at least 3 heart projects.

      @John C, I think adding 6 new kid cards makes sense. Each are one-sided and there are already 7 boy cards, 7 girl cards and 1 twins card included with the Experiences expansion box. This is the largest jump in stretch goal amount of $5000, so it sounds like it has to bigger reward than a pair or single card bonus. I think Artipia is trying to get to their Kicktraq projections of over $90K or even surpass 100K, so make the stretch goals larger to entice late deciders with bigger additions. The last 3 days for the Community campaign netted an additional $12K+ and almost 300 more backers. This campaign is averaging $5300 a day, but has tapered off quite a bit since the Thug Life announcement. They need to sweeten the honey pot a little more to get a few more backers to get off the fence and make a commitment. My suggestion would be to create a new pledge tier (The Vagabond) that bundles the Experiences expansion with Thug Life mini-expansion and price it at $39, then maybe it could make more current explorer backers want to upgrade for a $2 discount on the mini-expansion.

      OK, I take my first comment back (except for Instagram). Artipia has over 4,500 followers on Twitter already, so getting to 4,600 is not a huge task. I added my FOLLOW, and we only need 22 more...

      Also, the Campaign page shows that the next goal is unlocking 6 new child cards. I'm assuming that is an error and that it should be 2 cards.

      @Jill Wong - I don't think that the Good Genes trait lets you play 2 more rounds (which would be INCREDIBLY OP; it seems more like it will change 3, 6, 9 stress in the three stages of old age to 2, 5, 8. It's hard to tell without seeing the card, though..

      Hmmm... I've got to say I think that Artipia is making the Social Stretch goals impossible to reach. Yes, we are close to Instagram, but keep in mind there are currently 1,329 backers; that number has not gone up a lot mid-campaign. 1,250 Instagram follows ASSUMES 1) every backer has Instagram, and 2) NEARLY every backer looks at this page often.

      Now the call is for 4,600 follows on Twitter (!?)

      Yes, the 50 FB shares should be do-able even though most have deleted FB some time ago, you are asking 1,329 backers to somehow generate 4,600 follows on Twitter. Is that really in the spirit of "The Pursuit of Happiness"?

      (*sigh*)

      Hey guys, love the game. However, the more things that get added, the more diluted the deck becomes. Is it possible to release a “recommended card list”, something like, use health, social, business and tech cards for a 3-player game. It would just be good to have a tighter deck, where attempting to get a heart card isn’t going to kill you. Also, the strong genes trait sounds very overpowered to be honest. I think it would be better as a game changer card, that applied the strong genes trait to every player. I can see the player with that trait winning based on the simple fact that they could get 2 whole extra rounds.
