"That be a tentacular box" we hears ye exclaim, "but what treasures, pray tell, lie concealed within?" Well, luckily we pried one open earlier and here be what tumbled forth:
"Ooo, tis right pretty n all, but is it any good?" We hears ye shipmates, allow us to ease them concerns...
By now shipmates ye be pondering ... "Rum, skirmishes and an eccentric seamonster eh? I likes them. But do I likes the detail? Will it make I chortle?" Lift yer eyepatch and have a gander at these beauties:
"My cockles be thouroughly warmed by this fine game and I wish to be part o' the crew that brings it to the world" Why thank'ee shipmate! That is most excellent news and we would love to have ye aboard. The next question on any pirate's mind be ... TREASURE! How much to part with and what glories be thine in return?
"Well, slap me with an anchor..." we hears ye roar "I can barely choose between such overwhelming riches!" We knows shipmate, tis a troublesome decision. Perhaps it would be best to talk it over loudly in public spaces with yer friends, yer enemies and yer aquaintances.
Indeed we thinks as much sharing as possible of this tough decision be a mighty fine thing. Y'see the more folks knows about us and joins the crew, the more likely we is able to bring ye these extra gems...
Dear me, did ye really just say "All hands on deck! Come on crew, heave them sails and aim for the horizons... we wants all of these chests unlocked!" Well thank'ee shipmate, yer enthusiasm is most humbling. We would be nuthin without ye and we applaud ye most sincerely.
We looks forward to sharing this voyage with ye and should there be any other questions, we hopes they is answered in the scrolls below. Let's raise those sails - Heave Away me hearties ....
"Blimey. That was revoltin. What's with the rip-roarin singin anyhows?" Aint' nuthin goes better together than rum, pirates and shanties! There be a whole album telling the colourful backstories of some of the 60+ game characters (if ye want to see more take a look at our YouTube channel). Just part of what makes this game beloved by all who sail in her...
"Them lot certainly seem to like it, but how do I knows they ain't been rum-swaggled into saying them things? I thinks I takes a closer look at the documentation..." Certainly shipmate, we be happy to share. It be not quite final, but here's the rulebook link for yer perusal.
The main game be suited to adults of a medium complexity, but there be simpler rules for the younger pirate and additional rules for more experienced gamers.
"Tis a done deal! I be making space on me shelves this very moment - when can I get me hands it?" Fantastic news shipmate we be delighted to get it to ye. We estimates that it be with ye in the fair month o November... Just in time for the Holidays so it happens ...
Risks and challenges
This being our second attempt at Kickstarting this project we are confident we've addressed the issues that scuppered our first attempt and have made a much better game in the process.
Making the game in China has it's challenges but having excellent relations with our manufacturers we're sure that we can get it to you on time and on budget. Nevertheless the unexpected can happen and so we have built in a bit of wriggle room into our delivery estimates. Should we encounter any unforeseen delays we will of course keep you updated every step of the way.
Thank'ee shipmates. We look forward to sailing with ye.
