Agent Provocateur - $70k SG hit! (Plus other tidbits)
It hasn't even been a week since we launched and we've already hit an incredible $70,000 ($72,567 at time of writing, to be exact.)
This means that ALL backers will receive a digital version of an art-book filled with Danny's outstanding artwork, showing you the evolution of The Agents from concept stage via rough drafts to fully inked Agents and Missions.
We know that many of you have expressed interest in a hard-cover physical version, so we'll do the maths and hope to include that as an add-on soon.
Complete PnP + updated rulebook
After seeing how many of you have loved the chance to look over and play the PnP, I've decided to release the full updated base-set as a PnP, as a little thanks for all your support these past few days. I hope this gives you a chance to all enjoy the full game-play experience of The Agents*.
You'll also notice that we've adjusted some Agents' commands AND upgraded the point piece graphics on the card in the form of 'data-tokens'. Combine 2 halves of a data token to unlock the intel hidden within (aka points!)
As another little surprise, you might notice that one of the most furtive Agents of all has already made his way from the 'Base of Renovations' booster into the base set. See if you can spot him, though he might be *undercover*.
Every single backer (from $1 tier up) will receive the full color PnP once the campaign ends. Stay tuned for mini SGs to get hold of the PnP for the expansions!
Les Agents. Das Agents.
We've also seen that lots of people are asking about translated versions of the game. There have been requests for French, Hungarian, Russian and Chinese in particular. We're going to try to release a few translated versions based on level of demand. To help us work out who wants what, please pop over to BGG and take part in our poll.
The Agents under scrutiny
We also want to give a shout out to a couple more titans of the industry who have spent a bit of time with The Agents and have shared their thoughts;
"The Agents is one of the most brilliant yet simple ideas I've seen in a card game. It's amazing just how much of a deep game is inside a deck of cards!" Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower
"A few things about The Agents. One, it’s awesome and you should go back it. Seriously, I really like this game." Board Game Quest
"This game of intrigue and suspense is surprisingly deep and full of tension, but can also be a lot of fun." Perpetual Geek
"The game, from start to finish is a wonderful experience. Saar has something special here." Chevee Dodd
And finally, all you Collaborators out there might like to see your sets of the game being printed and prepped for shipping. Not long to go! (see photos below)
As always, I'll be active on comments so give me a shout with any questions and I'll look forward to seeing you guys power through to our next $100k SG for player-aid cards added to the game!!
*Remember that the base-set is still subject to change before final release
