Have a question?
Hey Ben. I'll be getting a proof from LongPack (the manufacturing company) next week. If everything looks good, which I'm very confident that it will, I'll give them the go to make the game! I'll go ahead and write an update right now to let everyone know :)
It's been a hot minute since an update, so just curious on the state of affairs.
You know I have stock in the glasses industry right? I did this on purpose! $$$ No, I'm joking :) But in all seriousness, I think the overall look is cleaner and more professional. I'm hoping that after a game or two, you'll have the cards memorized and will be able to play without looking. I'm telling you, this game gets so much better the more you play. After a few games, you'll be doing things that you never thought were possible. And in a very structured and non-gimmicky way.
That's reassuring thank you :)
QML is a great company. Following their Twitter feed is pretty entertaining. I'm glad you selected them.
Have to say I preferred the writing on the card in the before shots. Had some friends over play Mega Civilisation and the update came through and the vote was 4:2 against the after shots. I would have preferred to be able to read the card while there lying down and not have to pick them up to read them. Yes I'll need glasses soon but the longer without them the better, I would prefer not to help it along, older people do play games as well.
Other than that this game is brilliant.
Things are going well Nathan. We're very close to sending out all the files to the manufacturing company. I'll write an update and send it out by tomorrow. In the update, I'll talk about which manufacturing company we're using, updates on fulfillment, and what has been going on with the game itself. I'm feeling very positive about things :)
It's been a while since we've received an update. Hope are things going?
I also find this to be high John. Trust me, I’m doing everything I can to find the cheapest shipping. I’ll be at Wondercon through the weekend, but will see to this first thing next week.
Well the Pledge Manager on the first page just had a $70 shipping for an $80 game pledge to Australia, unfortunately no games worth almost dollar for dollar in shipping.
This is the "Rest of World" cost that ShipNaked gave us. Unfortunately, we don't have any control of this part. Our game was given a 3.7lbs estimated weight which puts us in the 5lbs category for shipping. I'll send you a PM and see if we can figure something out.
Lol, I'm gonna assume that the 29$ to ship is a mistake?
I'll most likely send out a survey next week. I'm still setting things up for the pledge manager.
We still need to talk. Send me a message and let's see if there is any last minute changes we can work out.
You've been an avid supporter and I thank you for that my friend. I'm looking forward to the day that you're my partner in a 2v2 match! I hope you're better than I am lol.
Gross man! hahaha

Thanks. Even though you tried explaining your name, I still have no idea what it means. Can someone please explain this to me?!
@Sentient Cow Games
Thanks guys. And good luck on your kickstarter. Your game rocks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sentientcowgames/secret-unknown-stuff-escape-from-dulce-co-op-sci-f
Thank you. So am I :)
when will the first survey be ?
Congrats Rolando glad your campaign was a success. Wish us luck on ours in march.
Thanks for letting us share in your dream in bringing Eternal Kings to fruition. You fought hard for it, and you won. Really looking forward to having it, in-hand. Full congratulations, well deserved.
Happy endings 😂😂😂😂💦💦
Congrats Rolo and team!! We are glad we could be a part of your journey! :) Looking forward to the game and future adventures!! :D
Congratulations!!! Looking forward to seeing that art out there in the world!
What a surprise! When you get the game, are you even going to know what to do with it? 😆
Thanks for understanding Happy! I see where you are coming from too. There are tons of games these days. You have to find the right one for you. I’ll see on the battlefield someday!
oh I understand where you are coming from. KS is not a store, but it is a market place. at any one time there are 10-12 projects that I consider cool enough to back, but I cannot back them all. So i have to decide on which ones give me the best bang for my buck. anyways you were successfully funded so my backing would have not mattered that much. Like I said i plan on purchasing when it comes to retail. And again congrats.
Ah... it feels good to be an Eternal King. Congratulations on funding! Cant wait to get my copy!
@Wiggity Bang Games
Coming from the creators of Quelf, Furt, and Alpha Bandits, this is an honor! Thank you so much for all your support.
Congratulations Rolo on a successful campaign! I've seen you come a long way in the past few years putting this together. The attention to detail is evident in the artwork, gameplay and the campaign itself. Well done!
Glad to be a part of this amazing game :)
Yes of course! We’ll send out a few surveys from now till the shipping date. Thanks Igor ☺️
question. can i change my shipping address during any point before the game is shipped? i am not sure but there is a possibility i move until september.
You’re helping support indie games. Also, you would be getting the game way before anyone else. It might take some time to get into retail.
This isn’t a game you play once or twice. You’ll be playing this game for years to come. And the art is a component. I don’t think you realize how much we’ve spent on the art alone.
This Kickstarter wasn’t funded because of Kickstarter exclusives. It was funded because people are helping grow this community and they believe in the game. They want to be a part of something special. I promise anyone that is reading this that you’re going to be amazed at how well Eternal Kings plays. This is what you’re backing. Not a bunch of toys in a box with a mediocre game that comes with it.
And thank you for your compliment. We’re lucky to have found such great artists!
This looks great, but a bit expensive for what you get card wise. Without any KS exclusives no real need for me to back, but I'm in for a buck to follow along. Congratulations on getting funded. Looking forward to the retail release.
Woohoo! We have the plastic tray!
@ʕ； •`ᴥ•´ʔ (˶‾᷄ ⁻̫ ‾᷅˵) ʕಠᴥಠʔ I'll make sure of it!
400 away from plastic tray :) I hope those tray are sized to fit sleeved cards
@Mark Ellis The expansion cards are not in the base game. They are separate cards that you can use to construct your army. I definitely recommend them.
Quick question: What do the two add-ons do for the base game? Are they unique cards that will further allow you to customize your army? Or are they extras of existing cards from the base set? Thanks.
Yes!!! Another stretch goal!!! Let’s go for the plastic tray, we can do that!!
Hey everyone! I just posted a new update #10. In the update, I mention an Eternal Kings game play and review video that was done by the SoCal Viking. This video was completely random to me as I had no idea they would do this! And I thoroughly enjoyed it. I encourage you to show their channel some love: https://youtu.be/y2X9YK32si0
@Jordan One game is enough, although you won’t be able to use cards from the same factions, since there is only 1 set of those cards. But there are 4 factions, so if you don’t intend on using the same factions, you should be good!
First stretch goal down!
Is one game enough for 2 player deck building or does each player need to buy the game?
@Rolo: i know the game plays well as it is!!! No ‘need’ at all of the ‘variant set’!! it was just to add an optional choice while building up the army before a new match..5$, a handful of mercenary variant pieces..
Anyway, i hope we reach the plastic tray stretch goal!!
@Leonardo We’ll look into adding new pieces in the future. The game plays exceptionally well right now though. When you start adding different pieces, it may start to lose the integrity of chess. But if you really think that those extra pieces make those chess variants better, then we’ll have to take a look. But I have a very advanced radar when it comes to gimmicks.
@Rolo: I know it’s late, but i’d like as add on also an additional expansion set offering some of the alternative pieces taken from chess variants, like i.e. the chancellor, the archbishop, the amazon, the marshall..there are a ton of them! May be next Kickstarter? 😜
@Brett its better to add funds now for the additional cards since it unlocks stretch goals and we are close to the first one.
@Brett Thanks Brett! This was a group effort! Yes, we'll be using a pledge manager for those of you that were not able to purchase the expansion during the campaign.
Hey Rolo congrats on getting funded. I can't what to get my copy and start playing. Are we going to be able to purchase the stretch goal cards after the kick starter campaign is finished?
Yes you owe me haha, that would be awesome Rolando!! :D
oh yeah as well as you to cj im sure every one would love the honor to play against you to guys if you guys ever get the chance to
All right we did it. I'm so glad we made funding. I am so exited for the game. I am creating a facebok page for us to play the game online wise against each other if any one is interested you are more then welcome to join Eternal Kings Online. I hope you do no mind Roland that I think the game is that awesome to try to play online against other people. And you or more then welcome to come join the group as well and some of us would have the honor and the privilege to play against you online when ever you had free time.
@RTB It was our pleasure RTB. Strategicon is our home away from home. Will we be seeing you there this May? And thanks for backing us!
