Stretch Rewards & Social Rewards Unlocked + A first look at Experiences!

Posted by Artipia Games (Creator)

Hello Travelers, Explorers, Expeditionists, Adventurers and Pioneers,

We hope you had an excellent gaming weekend and that you are enjoying the first days of spring!

Unlocked Social Stretch Rewards and a new one!

We are very happy to see your amazing response and eagerness to achieve all given Social Stretch Goals very quickly! You have managed to Unlock new Stretch Rewards as we have now entered the last 48 hours, which is utterly awesome, thank you all for your help and contribution to this!

The Rewards that you will be getting are 3 Group-Buy Items! These are Items that have a similar mechanic to the Group Projects, meaning that all more than 1 player has the ability to jump in, be benefited and get resources with only a single Group Buy Item!

"Disaster Recovery Supplies", "Crowdfunding" and "Real Estate" Group Buy Items are now added in your KS3 deck! Way to go Happiness Pursuers!

Experiences cards

Let us have a quick look at the Experience cards!

Experience cards work a little different than other cards. You can take Experience cards by choosing that Create Experience action available on the new game board. Your enter each Experience card at the Planning level. Even though some cards' Planning levels require resources, most of the ask you to "Have something", "Have a least X of something" or "Have the most of something". That something could be anything from specific resources,  up to a certain lifestyle (Projects, Job, Partner, Items etc).

Experience cards are divided into two categories. Trips and Events and do not occupy any of the player's available slots. During any of your following turns throughout the game, you can actually experience that Trip or Event by performing a card action and pay the Experience cost. By the time you do that, you may also choose to extend your experience by also paying the Extend cost. You may often encounter more of the Planning level requirements on the Extend level as well so prepare properly to make the most out of each Experience!

Even More Stretch Rewards!

You are on an incredible roll dear backers, as you keep smashing all the Stretch Goals that we have given you, one by one, with no mercy and no sign of slowing down! That means that more great material and variety will be in your hands, through the KS3 deck!

Easily surpassing the $67K Stretch Goal a couple of days ago means that you are now getting 2 more Group Projects, one of which will be the "Humanitarian Aid" that you can see below! 

Additionally, you have also helped us unlock the Stretch Goal of $72K and $77K, which means that you are now getting  12 super-cute Kids to add to your games!

Let's see if we can reach $81K and unlock some Single Parents for the game as we have now entered the final 48 hours of the campaign!

Name some of the new kids!

Last but not least, we would like you to pick some of the Kids' names! Please write your name suggestions in the comments below, afterwards we will create a poll on BGG and the 4 most popular names (2 girls and 2 boys) will be 4 of the Kids' names in the Experiences expansion!

We have some more awesome goodies for you for the grand finale of this campaign. Let us see how far we can still go!

Thank you so much for your amazing support!

      To pay homage to the home of our tPoH designers, I propose we name the kids after those of Greek myths and legends:

      Leonidas - The Spartan King who defied the Persians at Thermopylae with his sword and last breath. "This is Sparta!!!" -- portrayed by Gerard Butler, 2007

      Helen - The face that launched a 1000 ships and who's story put the Trojan Horse on our tongues long before it morphed into a scourge on the Internets and Achilles's infamous heel.

      For the sake of designers preferred duality and alliteration also from the Hellenic Pantheon of Gods: Apollo/Athena
      Apollo: "God of music, poetry, arts, oracles, archery, herds and flocks, diseases, healing, light, sun, knowledge and protection of young" and the unofficial deity of the Relax symbol.

      Athena: "Goddess of wisdom, handicraft, and war" may she grant you the spark of intellectual inspiration to avoid the misery of analysis paralysis on the cards less traveled.

      I think at least one kid needs a double name, so I propose John Mark and Mary Agnes.

      I clearly have to go with my own daughters names for this one:
