Hey guys!

I'd say Happy Monday, but that phrase gets caught in my throat! So happy new week! We welcomed our boss back from a visit to China, where he learned a lot, saw some great things, and had a little fun in the process!

He got to tour the production house and discuss our current and future projects with the team, and checked over some of the proofs that are ready, including Winter Romance!

He reviewed the physical proof, and Cherise has reviewed our digital proof and they were both happy, so we should soon be printing! So that means - it's time to start finalizing your pledges! We still have time to change addresses and add-on most items, but as we reach our order threshold on certain items, they will become unavailable, so to be sure you get everything you want, please get those pledges completed soon!

Doki Doki Beach Volleyball is on its way to Arclight for review and approval. As soon as we get that approval, the files will be submitted for a proof copy! This is the final set of files that are waiting to go to the printer before everything is on the production line!

We expect that the full set of playmats should be arriving in the next few weeks, as well as the Broken Token Big Box inserts. The art book text is almost completed and the art itself has been approved, so we should be able to see a proof copy of that soon as well!

Even though the weather is heating up, we're ready for a Winter Romance! How about you???

      @RayLancer - We are waiting for approval on the rulebook before we can post it, but I can post a short how-to I wrote for another backer who was also interested. It is going to be a really fun, fast-paced two player game!

      In Doki Doki Beach Volleyball, you win the game when you win 3 sets. Each player starts with a hand of 5 and places their player cards along with their deck into the play area. Starting player skips the draw/recover phase and goes into an action phase where they will play an action card from their hand which exhausts a character or use a character ability which does not exhaust the character. Next, they move into the attack phase. In this phase, you play either an action, attack, or a spike. These cards will have an attack value on them from 0 - 12. The first player will place a card within that value and the turn will pass to you. You will go through the 3 phases of recovery/draw, action, and attack. To not lose the set during your attack phase, you have to play a card with an attack value -1 or higher. Meaning, if the first player played a 5 during his attack phase, you must play a 4 or higher during your attack phase. This continues until one player can not place a -1 or higher card and loses the set. Recover your cards and start a new set until one of you wins 3 sets.

      If you have any further questions I will be happy to help! -Devon

      Were there any rules published for the volleyball mini game? It was something I wanted but never added on due to lack of rules.
