PnP, Pre-production and Production info

Hi!  

We just wanted to update you on how things are going since we last spoke.  

PnP  

Backers from the $5 level and above, few minutes ago received a message with a link to the PnP version of the game.  

This PnP is a part of your reward, so please don’t share or redistribute the files.  

One small thing about the PnP. The graphic design of the rulebook is NOT FINAL. The rules are final, but not the layout. Our graphic designer is close to finishing the layout of the rulebook, this one is just a quick version that we made for the purposes of this PnP. So don’t worry that the names of the $119 level backers are not there. They will be included in the print and final version of the rules and we are going to post it in a couple of days here in the comments section and also upload it on our website.

Pre-Production  

The files (except for the rulebook) are sent to our manufacturer and they are checking them at the moment to see if everything is O.K. As you will see in the PnP, there are a lot of components in the game. :) We expect this process to be done (including the rulebook) in about a week and we can immediately continue to producing the first copy of the game.  

Production  

While we were setting up the files, the production of the custom dice has commenced. And here are sample photos that our manufacturer sent. :)  

PLEASE NOTE: Our manufacturer assured us that the blue and purple dice are easily distinguishable. The light in the room messed up the colors in the photo. But of course, we are going to check them (and approve it they are ok) when the pre-production copy of the game arrives.

We are pleased to inform you that everything is going as planned (even ahead of schedule). And of course, we are going to update you for every step of the way in the next period. 

Oh, and one last thing. 

Cavern Tavern had 1973 backers during the Kickstarter campaign. The statistical probabilities say that 5-6 backers are having a birthday today. So, from the Final Frontier Games team, we want to say Happy Birthday to those backers. :) 

Have a great day! Cheers!

      Is there any chance of getting the CARDS.pdf file broken up into smaller files? 631 Mb makes for a pretty unwieldy file.

      Thanks, but you are ahead of schedule by a couple days. My birthday is Wednesday.

      @Kristina, we've moved away from the time tokens during the campaign. Instead we introduced the Clock. There, with the help of wooden tokens, the players will keep track when the Order was picked up from the Mess Hall.

      @Sebastian, the paper size is A4 for everything except for the Main Board and The Secret Chamber Board. They are 50x50cm and 21x10.5cm respectively.

      One small question... What paper size should be used for printing?

      I noticed that you forgot time tokens for players to keep track of when we place an order by way

      Oh yes. Thanks for clarifying for me. I'd misread the previous update. Cheers for that.

      @Michael Bedggood, we won't be using PM in this campaign for the reasons mentioned in the previous update. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/512772051/cavern-tavern/posts/1613141 However we've setup a pre-order page on IndieGogo where you can buy the add-ons that we discussed during the campaign. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cavern-tavern If you have any questions about the IndieGogo page, we are here. :)

      @FFG, when will the PM go live so we an add some of those additional goodies to our orders?

    11. Final Frontier Games Creator on July 23, 2016

      @Kristina Rodriguez, the link is sent. :)

      I hope sooner since i only have access to print for next 20mins

    13. Final Frontier Games Creator on July 23, 2016

      @Kristina Rodriguez, of all the days, Kickstarter had to make a hiccup today. :) The "send to all" message system failed to deliver the message to all the backers of level $5 and up, so we are going through the backers one by one at the moment and sending the PnP link manually. You should be getting the link in the next hour or so. Thanks for the patience.

    14. Final Frontier Games Creator on July 23, 2016

      @Paul, @Andrew. They may seem that way at first glance, but we've done heavy playtesting of the game with the dice and there were no problems. However you roll the "2" or "5" and whatever angle you look at them they are distinguishable.

      I agree with Andrew I'm a bit worried the 5 and 2 look a bit to similar at first glance

    17. Jonathan on July 23, 2016

      This game really is something special.
      Great to see the awesome print&play, thanks for the hard work!

    18. Final Frontier Games Creator on July 23, 2016

      @Justin it should be OK now. :)

      Drop box says too much traffic.......

    20. Final Frontier Games Creator on July 23, 2016

      @John Paul Kilcrease yep, they should be coming along within the hour. :)

      Is it just me or do the '5' and '2' faces look too similar?

      Will those of us who pledged post-campaign be able to access the pnp as well?

    23. Paul Kellett on July 23, 2016

      I was born in 1973, my birthday is in 2 weeks so thank you for the early wishes and the pnp.
