Final Week and Art Choices

Posted by Talon Strikes Studios (Creator)

Hello Strikers,

Final 5 Days!

Welcome all our new backers! 30k Awesomeness!!!!

Thank you folks for the support with Winterborne. This is the most backed Talon Strikes game now!

New Stretch goals are up and we have a few more we would like to hit. These would include another Kickstarter Exclusive Promo Set as well as a cool insert! Let's see what the last five days holds for Winterborne and see if we can bring some more folks to this wonderful project and continue to build out the game!

Season Board Options

A suggestion was made about combining the score track to the season board. This is how it would look. Remember you do not score till the end of the game. 

Option #1


This does make the season board a bit bigger in size. Alternatively, a smaller Season Board which flip over and has two sides. Once the game ends you could remove the single deck of cards and turn it over.

Option #2

Option #3

We could also do a score pad. I designed one up. With this option the season board would remain unchanged and we would add a score pad.

Any thoughts would be welcome.

Please continue to share the project on your Social Media Platforms.

Thank you for the support!

      If there is no scoring during the game I'd prefer option #1 in the "flip variant" (season board on one side; scoring board on the backside). I'd add the Icons depicted on the scoring as a reminder to the score board.
      But I'm happy with all solutions (except maybe for option #1 "unflipped").

    2. Gabe Covert on

      #2, #3, #1 in that order!

      The option 3, but not with paper, but with a pad that you can erase with a erasable marker

      If scoring is not captured until the end of the game then option 1 seems pointless and just clutters up the seasons board making it look too “busy”.

      Option 2 is my preferred option as I’m not a fan of score pads

    5. Benjamin Foster on

      Option 2. Maybe you could put the point scoring rubric on the backside instead/alongside of the logo?

      3 then 2 then 1 for me in order of favourite to least favourite.

    7. David K. Napier on

      I vote for option one, I really don't like scorepads

    8. Garet on

      Option 3, option 1 and option 2. Dry erase is not bad, but I buy old games with the sheets all the time. If you have a blank one you just copy it and print extras. If they are all used I just whip up a new one on excel. Personally I would make copies in the beginning and preserve the real sheets for special occasions.

    9. David on

      Option 2 if you don't score anything until the end

    10. Mark Reynolds

      2 then 3 please

    11. Katrina Hennessy

      Option 2 would be my pick or the dry erase score pad suggested.

    12. David Van Gaal on

      Option 2, then option 1. No score pad.

    13. HaiKulture

      Option 2 with scoring reminders under the logo

      Personally, I do like 1 best, followed by 2 and then 3. I have a few games with the score tracks on the boards and don’t find that it takes away from the artwork or playability. Being a leftie, anything with dry erase can potentially be disastrous for me, but I can appreciate how this would limit concerns of replayability. Regardless of the option you go with, I think this will be a great addition to the game.

      In order of preference 3 then 2 then 1

      I personally like score pads and hate clutter so my ranking is: 3 > 2 >> 1

      Thank you so much for the great feedback.

      John Gregory on

      Option 2 then option 1. Don't like score pads

      I think option #3 is my favorite. It doesn't make a ton of sense to have a full score track when the score is only tallied at the end of the game.

      I understand that some people don't like the idea of running out of sheets... maybe a dry-erase board for tallying a la Ex Libris would be a neat idea?

    20. Aaron Strzelewicz

      Option 1: Don't like it, the score track is too distracting from the artwork.
      Option 2: This is really nice, it works well in Sagrada. However, you really need some art or something in the middle area, just the logo by itself is super boring to look at.
      Option 3: Scorepads are OK. I go for the laminate/dry-erase route on all my scorepads so I don't worry about running out, but I much prefer the tactility of scoring with tokens.

      I personally don't really like option 1 too much as it looks cluttered. I also prefer scorepads because I like them, but having option 2 would be nice and clean as well!

    22. JKP

      Option 1 is too busy. That's all I got :)

    23. Stephen Wooster

      oh, and the dry erase score board could be an add-on as well rather than part of the initial game

    24. Stephen Wooster

      what about option 1 for the season board and adding a dry-erasable score 'pad' - essentially, a card that is the size of the pad but is writable/erasable with dry erase markers. this addresses those that like the pad type format for scoring but, removes the waste and 'what to do when it runs out' issue.

    25. Matt Smith on

      Definitely option #2. No need to stare at an unused score track all game. Flipping it over at game end is no big deal.

    26. Aistis

      Option #1

    27. Missing avatar

      Jan vaughn on

      Option 2! Reduced waste, no need to worry when pad runs out, and keeps the final scoring separate from the seasons.

    28. Danielle on

      Option 3 is my first choice. I really like scorepads, personally, because they ensure that I don't forget to score something. However, I agree with "jabuttz" that once it runs out, that can be a bit of a pain. Option 2 would be my second choice.

    29. Troy Newhoff on

      No damn score pads!!! My preference is option #1 then #2.

    30. Missing avatar


      Score pads are nice but once you run out you either need to make copies. If it's in addition to the score board then I like it. Option 1 is my preference

    31. Missing avatar

      1 or 2

    32. Lawrence Wimsatt

      Option 3, score pad is my preference.

      Gerben on

      For clarity I think I would prefer the flip-over version, so the seasons don't get cluttered by the scoring which doesn't happen until after anyway. And with scoring having it's 'own' side it would also allow scoring to go up beyond 40+ if required (not sure if that happens), at least I personally don't really like scoreboards where you go beyond the maximum.

      Option 3!
