Oh my dear Agents!

What a time we've had. I think you know by now how I feel about you all, but let me just say it one more time....I love you!! You've changed my life. You've changed Danny's life. It's truly been outstanding, astonishing and unbelievable - I could never have dreamed that this idea for a game that popped into my head many months ago could grasp the imagination of so many people and become...this!

As we make our way into the final hours of the campaign, I want to thank you all, and most especially the group of incredible active, committed commenters who lived through every day of this campaign with me on the comments page, bringing a level of humor, kookiness, creativity and soul to this project that I simply couldn't have imagined. You know who you are! Thanks once more to all of my 6,490 backers from the bottom of my heart.

*wipes away a tear, clears throat and pulls self back together*

Home Time
So now it's time to wrap up a few last pieces of business. The first of which is that yesterday we hit our penultimate stretch goal!!

This is one that I know that even in the short time that it existed, many of you were excited to reach, not least of whom was Agent Dark Mechanic! In fact, Danny was so keen to deliver this particular boost to the game, that he's already gone ahead and done a couple of rough sketches for a couple of the new KS exclusive Safe-house illustrations!

Partners in Crime
While we're on the subject of Danny, I want to showcase another group of Agents fresh off the coloring block. Take a look at these new, final illustrations for The Partners!

Thinking outside the Box
I know many of you have already opted in for one or more of the add-ons available, but I thought I'd do the quickest of round-ups so that everyone knows what is on offer to bling up your package of The Agents.

Ship Ship Hooray
This campaign has taken us all by surprise and a few of you are wondering what the chances are of receiving the game before the Holidays. I sat once more with the printers today and locked down a really tight schedule for production, receipt and dispatch. According to our calculations, all the games (including expansions + add-ons) should be sent out by the end of November, so we'll be able to get everything to you comfortably by Christmas (though Chanukah falls crazy early this year)!! If this means you want to add on an extra set or two, far be it from me to stop you!

The story continues...
Even though we're coming to the end of the road for this campaign, I can tell you that this certainly is not the last you've heard from The Agents. I have a bunch of ideas for more expansions (already in the works) that bring exciting, new dimensions to the game. And I know that many of you have sent me some wonderful ideas for mechanics, *graphic novels* and alternative game-play rules as well. And Danny's imagination only gets more rich, vivid and absorbing with each day that passes, so we hope to work together on expanding the world of The Agents, in another campaign very soon!

And that's it! Final update before we ride out the last 8 hours together! I'll be over on the comments section with you through to the end, and I'd love all of you to join the celebration with us there!

With all my thanks for everything,
Saar

      No offense, but I'll believe it when I see it regarding getting the game before Christmas. Just ask Pandasaurus Games about deadlines.

      The sweet spot pledge - is it a tie between the early birds and the secret santa? It looks like the bureau is still $1 more?

      Lets check Mapleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

      Are the comments working over here, I wonder?

      About the shirt, I ended up doing the 100 $ pledge mostly for the box and the spoof expansion, but since a get a shirt too where do I choose the design and above all the size. (I am a big guy)

      Penultimate means next to last, not last.

      Hi Cody. For this campaign it's those three options on the page. I'd love to offer a higher degree of customization but I can't manage it this time around.

    9. Henry Griffith on

      Saar and Danny, Great job!!! I am sooooo looking forward to the game!!!

    10. Cody Parcell on

      Apologies if this has already been answered, but on the t-shirts, are there customization options available, or is it just what is shown on the page? IE, I wanted one with the male sniper and the text "I've got your back."

    11. Saar Shai 3-time creator on

      @Stefano - yes - I'd like to introduce more languages, so I'll try to do that in due course. And thanks for the cool ideas for the game!

    12. Stefano Baldantoni on

      I forgot to ask, are you planning to translate it in more languages ? Do you need an Italian translator ? Let me know, my family would love the game but they don't speak english . Ciao

      First time poster. Great looking game.
      now you have to make vehicles and missions using vehicles.
      Another idea would be villains, one time only usable cards that damage opposing factions when you play them.

      @ Matt S
      Thanks! I suspected this, but wanted some confirmation.

    15. Saar Shai 3-time creator on

      @Kevin - oh, I wish he could, but I don't think it will be possible since he's in London and the artbooks are being produced and shipped directly from Israel.

    16. Matt S on

      @Gerrit
      You would still need to keep the original $5 add on for international shipping at whatever tier you pledged for.

      The Fancy Pants Box at $25 already has factored shipping costs into it, when it was priced at $25.

    17. Kevin Blacksheep Thompson on

      Saar,
      for those of us getting the Agent Artbook, is it possible to have Danny sign the inside? (Helps me justify the $100 pledge with my wife and friends!) thanks!

    18. Gerrit on

      Just saw the "Free International Shipping" notice on the Fancy Box. Does this mean that the box itself doesn't increase the shipping cost for international shipping or that I don't have to pay the $5 for international shipping if my pledge contains the Fancy Box? (The latter would effectively reduce the cost of the box to $20, since it would do away with the $5 that I have to pay for not living in the US.)

      I have a favor to ask. Can we get some art for computer wallpaper, or (my real goal) printing on an artscow large bar mat to play the game on?

      While I haven't been very chatty, this has been an amazing campaign to watch unfold from the start. You've done an amazing job, both with the game, and your interaction with your backers. Here's an early congratulations on a job well done, and I look forward to playing!

    24. Saar Shai 3-time creator on

      Afraid not @Doug. This was the penultimate Stretch Goal that was unlocked!
