      Still haven't received my 4 copies in Greece. Should I be worried?

      You entered 0 for everything in your survey. That's why you did not get it.
      I will have it sent.

      Wow, coolstuff is selling upgrade for $14.... I paid $34 but that did include the 10 President cards and shipping.... Probably not worth the extra $20.

      Is there a link somewhere to the PDF of the rules of this second edition? (got the Deluxe but assumed the rules content is the same).

      Got my deluxe edition and it looks fabulous! The only thing is that it said the deluxe gets metallic gold custom dice, but mine are white with darker bits. I can take a picture if needed. Just want to make sure I have this right, thanks!

      @rafael
      The cards are 300gsm, blue core, AQ coated and linen finished. In other words, superior quality, and expensive to produce. Done to match the first edition as closely as possible. Linen finish will compress cards and they will need some time to expand. But there is no quality issue with the cards, they are too notch, and I spent a lot of time and money to make sure of that.

    16. David Combs on August 24, 2017

      I don't have my first edition copy anymore, but I do have the promos from the first kickstarter. Other than a slight difference in the linen finish pattern, the cards look and feel the same. Unless the light hits it just right, you can't tell the difference.

      I love the player mats, the cross and skull tokens, and the new dice. Everything is top-notch. After foolishly trading my original copy away last fall, thinking this new one would arrive sooner, I'm very happy to have this back in my collection. It's one of my all time favorite solo and 2-player games. I'm looking forward to trying the expansion modules.

      Nice job deleting my feedback on Facebook. When laid out side by side the explanation is nowhere near the quality of the original game.

      We are sorry you feel that way and disagree with you. These cards are the best quality I own. And I own 500+ games.

      I got my expansion pack last night and I have to say I am really disappointed. The cards feel thinner and flimsier than the original. The production was delayed so that they wouldn't "have to sacrifice on quality" but it turns out that its hard to sacrifice when the standard is already lowered. On top of that I have tried reaching out to Robert on Kickstarter, FB and email and never got a response. I think this is the last Robert Burke Kickstarter for me.

    26. Richard Murray on August 22, 2017

      Just got my deluxe game an hour ago. The package was well cushioned with packing peanuts, so minor dings and dents shouldn't matter. My game box was flawless. Everything was present and accounted for, and the quality of the components was staggering. I am so happy that I backed this Kickstarter, and can't wait to get it to my table!

      Everything arrived in great shape. There was a large plastic bag inside that doesn't fit inside the box without folding. I don't really need it any way. I am assuming the crosses and skulls are to be kept in the velvet bags until they're used, right? Do the Influence Tokens go in the bags too, or should I just throw them loosely in the box? I didn't see any appropriately sized plastic bags to put them in. There are so many different types of cards, I put them into individual stacks and counted them. The best way I found to arrange them in the three trays was to put all of the Virtue and Holy relics in one tray, The Temptation and Unholy Relics in another tray, and everything else into the middle tray. That conveniently gives me 75 cards per stack and makes it easier to divide them up between Heaven and Hell. Even with all of the Deluxe Edition extras, everything fits easily into the box without the need to shoehorn everything in like I have to do with a lot of other games. Overall, I'm very pleased with the packaging. I would have liked to have had a pair of smaller bags for the Influence Tokens instead of the one oversized bag though. The playmates fit loosely enough on top of everything, even under the plastic shield, that I don't need a bag for them. The rule book fits well on top of the plastic shield and still leaves ample room for the top of the box without overstuffing. Well done!

      Then always draw up to 5 if you have less than 5 during step #7.
      Max hand limit is 8.

    32. Mike Schwartz on August 18, 2017

      My game arrived today and it looks great! I'm looking forward to playing. One quick question: How many cards do you draw for your opening hand at the beginning of the game? I can't seem to find the answer in the rule book.

      I just got my game today. The wait was worth it. Probably one of the best looking boxes for a game ever and inside the box was even nicer. The tray insert is awesome and the clear plastic cover is something rarely seen in a game box. The game pieces are extraordinary. This whole design is truly art.

      Thankfully, I lifted the whole insert out of the box because underneath it is more goodies.

      Oddly, I was shipped 2 copies of the game. Did my pledge level come with 2 copies?

      If not let me know and we can make arrangements to have it sent back to you. I know some people might keep quiet about it, but I know how much effort you put into this and every game counts.

      I am not doing the shipping myself. It is being done by Quartermaster Logistics. I will send an update out with the contact info to everyone.

      They are very good, and we will make sure everyone gets there game.

      Robert - I got a shipping label created from coolstuffinc and it is labeled for my old address. I only assume this is battle for souls. I sent email of my address change to theradish@gmail.com immediately on July 31st, as requested, yet it wasn't updated? I would hate not to receive this limited edition that I ordered.

      Patrick, if it was simply a pre-order, I would expect nothing else, but since it is a kickstarter campaign, ongoing fuel to maintain excitment and interest is essential. I sympathize with Robert's unexpected delays, but they shouldn't be a reason to go quiet. If the designer loses interest, what's to keep pledgers interested and supportive? A game of this quality and originality should be kept on the pedastal where it belongs.
