Hey again, fellow Moonshiners!
Let's begin with a nice SURPRISE.
I know is not Christmas yet, but that's not a reason to not give you a nice surprise already. A lot of you wrote us in emails and comments about the much desired plastic insert. And since we were so close to reach that last stretch goal, it made all the sense in the world to have it, especially since "Moonshiners of the Apocalypse" deserves the best, right? So we're more than happy (yay!) to tell you that the plastic insert is a reality. All the components of "Moonshiners of the Apocalypse" will be neatly ordered and laid in a cool insert.
Spiel '18 in Essen. Veni, Vidi, Vici. We've been there and we're so glad we did! The "Moonshiners" table was FULL all the time, and many of those wonderful people were backers, eager to try the game. The feedback was more than good (which is at least another reason to be proud), we met tons of lovely gamers and some of them, even pre-ordered the game after testing it. We had such a wonderful time, were seriously thinking of not only going back next year, but crossing the ocean to at least one of the major conventions in US!
BG CON, (in Mures, Romania). A small but brave local convention, which we couldn't say no to, especially since last year, "Moonshiners of the Apocalypse" won the First Prize at the "Game Design contest". This trip kept us busy for almost a week, but again, we met lovely people, and why not, played a few cool games.
Miniatures are all done, checked and over-checked and sent to manufacturer. In a few days the process will begin and soon after that we'll receive samples for approval. Man we can't wait to hold those minis in hand! Goes without saying that we'll share pictures as soon as that happens and we're gonna brag with those pictures everywhere we can :) Regarding miniatures, as soon as we approve the samples, the process of creating the molds will begin.
Printing the game.
For sure you remember that during the campaign a lot of stretch goals were unlocked, that required more art to be created. At this moment (actually since a few weeks back) the new characters, Event Cards, Booze Crates and Relics, along with the rest of the art files for "Moonshiners" are done, checked, organized into what we call "printing files" and prepared for printing and about to be sent to the factory. Soon the printing process will begin as well.
Did you filled your "Moonshiners of the Apocalypse" survey?
It happens after every Kickstarter campaign: people forget about pledging, the emails go straight to their "spam" folder, or they simply miss the emails. Usually, creators rely on the weekly email reminders from the pledge manager platform to call all the backers to action. But we believe that's not enough. So we spent a lot of time trying to find all these backers and remind them to act on their pledge. So if you missed the CrowdOx emails, now is the time to fill in the Survey, especially since soon the production will begin and we will close the "late pledge" option.
Most anticipated Game of 2019? "Moonshiners of the Apocalypse"of course!
Actually, we need your help for that. Please go to https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/248375/item/6545983#item6545983 and vote "Moonshiners". It would be more than cool to see our little game climbing up that ladder! :)
Again, we promise not to miss an update again and we salute you!
