Survey, add-ons, surprise and few more things

37 likes

Hi,

First of all, this will be a bit longer update then usual, so please bear with us till the end. :)

We informed you in the previous update that we'll be sending the invites to the pledge manager this week, but unfortunately, the people that were setting it up went MIA for a period that we are not anymore comfortable to be continuing to work with them. 

The campaign is on strict timeline, and not replying to emails for more than 10 days is something that we can't afford. So we are taking the initiative and bringing this process under our control.

There are two things you need to know that we'll discuss in further detail below. 

1. We've sent you a survey for the information that we need to deliver the game to you.

2. Yes, there will be add-ons. We'll be using a platform where we are doing the setup and we are in control. More on that below.

Survey 

You should have received the survey by now from us. There, you will input your address and also we've thrown a few questions. :)

Add-ons

We've mentioned in the previous update that we are using IndieGogo's new service called InDemand for taking pre-orders.

We are going to use that platform for add-ons also. Click here to check out the page.

There are 5 add-ons on the IndieGogo page.

- Dice Bag

- Set of 6 Coasters

- Custom Dice

- Dice cup

- Set of 6 Dice Cups

They all come with free shipping. Every add-on has a different perk, so if you want to order more than one add-on simply check out for the first, and do the same procedure for the next one.

If you have any questions about this, we are here for everything that needs to be clarified. Just send a us a message here and we'll reply as soon as possible.

The backers at $1 that want to upgrade to get the full game... You will receive a special link created just for you to upgrade your pledge level to a full game minus the $1 that you've already pledged ($43). This pledge level will only be visible to those with the link. 

The backers at $5 that want to upgrade to get the full game... You will receive a special link created just for you to upgrade your pledge level to the pledge level for a full game minus the $5 that you've already pledged ($39). This pledge level will only be visible to those with the link.

The backers at $44 and above that want to receive an extra copy of the game... You will receive a special link to the pledge level for a full game with free shipping. This pledge level will only be visible to those with the link.

The add-ons will be shipped separately from the game.

Name an order pledge

Most of the backers have sent us the Names for the Order cards and their names that will be included in the rulebook, but there are still few more that haven't responded yet. Since this is something that needs to be added in the design (cards and rulebook) we can't wait much longer. We need to send the files to the printer and the production of the game needs to start.

We have almost 2 weeks before we have to do that so we must close this situation in 10 days most. We will wait until July 4th and then we'll have to close the design. Submissions after that will have to be declined.

Rulebook

We are very pleased to inform you that we just received the final version of the rules one week ahead of schedule! It's much more streamlined than it was! Working with Joshua was a real pleasure!

Brexit

Yep, you read that right. We are going to discuss about Brexit.

Some of you (EU backers) might be asking how will the decision of the UK's referendum affect the Kickstarter projects that you backed (the EU friendly part), and you have every right to ask those questions.

This is a completely new situation and something that no one can predict that will happen during a Kickstarter project... But, there is a first for everything. :)

We discussed the situation with people that understand EU politics and with our UK based fulfillment company.

The thing is that according to Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the "divorce" between UK and EU will last at least 2 years. So, no need to worry about this. The campaign is still EU friendly and will be by the time we deliver this game to you. :)

Art

We have a couple of things that we wanted to show you in this update, plus one surprise for all of you that we think you're gone love. :)

First, the meeple stickers.

Meet Noogie Stonehammer, Tanelia Orisys, Wido Wanderfoot, Ingeltrud Proudbody, Grimald Headstrong and Keishara. :)

Next, we've got the alternate art for the player board.

And last, something that was discussed during the campaign and something that we promised to add if there was room in the box. Here it is :)

Prototype

Yep, you guessed that right. :) A clock that will track the time in the tavern and where each player will mark the time when they picked up the Order.

This felt like writing a rulebook for a game :)

We are here if you have any questions.

Cheers!

      Wow! The art is great on the new player board design.
      And I'm really happy with the way you included the new clock.
      Thanks guys, you rock!

      *drools at the alternate player board*

      amazing work!

    3. Final Frontier Games Creator on June 25, 2016

      @Ajax, unfortunately the platform doesn't have an option to combine the add ons. So you would have to make a bunch of separate selections and then will combine the order at our end.

    4. Final Frontier Games Creator on June 25, 2016

      @Daniel, thanks! :) As for your question, the clock will come with a plastic fastener.

      @Doreen, thanks! :) We know what you mean :D We can't wait to get our hands on the final copy of the game :)))

      @Jordan, Yep. The game comes with the custom laser engraved dice. These are just extras. As for upgrading to a full game, the option will be open for at least 1 more month. In any case will give you a heads up 2 weeks before we have to close that option. :)

      @Sara, we are giving the opportunity to all of our Kickstarter backers to receive an extra copy of the game with all the KS unlocked stretch goals and exclusive stuff. Just make sure that you follow the link that was sent to you through message if you want to order an extra copy. :)

      The Indiegogo page was not able to combine items for one check out, on Safari web browser

    6. Sara Tippey on June 24, 2016

      If I want to get another copy of the game, will it also come with all the KS unlocked perks, or will it be the retail version?

      The custom dice that are an addon are just extras right? Does the game come with the custom ones or regular ones? And how long will it be open to upgrade?

      You've done a great job with this kickstarter! I can't wait to play this! And I will absolutely get one of those dice cups, they look awesome. One question.. will the arm on the clock be attached with a magnet? I've got a game where the arm is attached with a magnet and it works flawlessly.

      @Michael, @Steven thanks! :)

    13. Final Frontier Games Creator on June 24, 2016

      Hi Sherry, good questions! And we should have included that in the update.

      Dice bag size - 120x160mm
      Coasters material - Cork with a 157gsm gloss paper on top for the design.
      Dice cup material - Plastic; Size - 83x83x93mm
      Dice - Laser Engraved

    14. Sherry King on June 24, 2016

      Questions about the add-ons: Dice Bag - Size? Coasters - what are they made of? Dice - are they the laser engraved set? Thank you for the answers.

    15. Stephen Palmer on June 24, 2016

      Same here!

      And my gawd, the Mico's take on the alternate player board art is freakin' stunning!!! Makes me wish did the rest of the board as well, but I know he's probably overworked as it is lol!
