We APPreciate you all!

At this point it seems APPropriate to let you know how APPreciative we are of your APProval and APPlause. We're so thrilled that The Agents has APPealed to you all. ;-)

Guys - you totally did it! We made it through to $30k in less than 24 hours. We're now going to be able to build an app version of The Agents. Our plan is to make the app available for iOS and Android.

All our primary stretch goals have been unlocked and each of you will receive so much more bang for your buck.

Thank you. Do we have the best backers in the world or what?

Now. A couple of other pieces of news.

1. We've created two multipack bundles. THE SECRET SANTA (for 2 sets) and MISSION CRITICAL (for 6 sets). Both bundles have been priced at the early bird level and each set comes with 2 expansions and ALL stretch goals as standard. We've also thrown in a little shipping discount to boot. This will help you buy multiple games for friends, gaming groups and independent retailers.

2. We've added a new stretch goal at $40k which will allow us to design Kickstarter-exclusive box art for the base set box. You've been calling out for KS exclusives, so we listened!

3. More information on the new customized tier 'THE PARTNER IN CRIME' is coming soon. With only 8 slots available, you're going to want to bid for these early. Trust us, it's worth it. Actually don't trust us. Don't trust anyone.

4. We'll leave you with some really incredible pieces of coverage that we've had in the past 24 hours from some doyens of the industry. Thanks to all the generous folks who took the time to dive into the game, pull it apart and tell us all about what they found!

"What makes The Agents such a joy for me is how small it is and yet how very large and complex it feels when playing it. A very interesting and engaging game that grabbed me by the nose and hasn’t let go. Simply excellent. 5/5" Father Geek

"The Agents is one of the better games I’ve played this year." Purple Pawn

“The Agents is a unique, in-depth card game that will give your brain a workout." Dad's Gaming Addiction

"Highly tense, very action filled... there is a lot to this little card game and a real joy to put it through its paces." Crits Happen

"There's so much strategy in this game - it's ridiculous." Bower's Game Corner

That's all for now!

      Ouya please.

      Don't be fooled, unless the application is free to grab on the App Store, developers have a limit of 50 promo codes they can freely give away in each update.

      Just a reminder that ALL backers get ALL stretch goals!

      Love the idea of an exclusive KS box.

      Is it possible as a later stretch goal (50-60k) to upgrade the KS boxes into larger boxes that can hold all the expansions, so we can keep our game with all upgrades in a single box?

      Hope to see also the APP on Windows 8

      This game looks fantastic. Hoping those numbers keep on going up and up!

      Will backers get the app when it comes out, or will we have to buy it from the respective app stores?

      I will reserve offering APPreciation of this message until after a process of vigorous scrutiny and due diligence.

      @Eric we don't know our ETA for the app yet, but I expect it will be early 2014!

      Haha. Thanks @susan

      \o/ woohoo!! Here's wishing you sustained success as the campaign progresses.

      I know you guys have the majority of the art and legwork done for the analog version of the game, but what kind of ETA are backers looking at for the iOS/Android app? Whatever the timeline, I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.

      I am so hAPPy for you!

      Well that escalated quickly.
