      @Stephen: Thanks for adding the PnP mat! Check your Kickstarter messages - we just sent you the password.

      Hello, I've added PnP mat yesterday on my survey. When will the email containing the password be sent to me?

      All sorted now team. Just need to hit the save button before proceeding to add on's

      Hi there Team. I have tried to do my backer survey using your Jet Backer site. This keeps failing as I try and continue on to add on's.
      It appears that Jet Backer is trying to take me to another site after I have entered all my shipping details.

    8. Stephen Gunawan on January 3

      Thanks for the PnP files!! Still haven't got time to print it yet. The illustrations are beautiful. Is it possible to give rounded cutting line to the edge of the cards as well?

    9. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on January 3

      @Tobin: Yes, good idea! I wish we had access to a plotter printer... I just uploaded "Gearworks_Playmat-Full.pdf" in the PnP folder. Same password.

      For the printable playmat, would it be possible to get a file of all of them pieced together rather than in 6 tiles? I have access to a plotter printer and it would make it easier....

      YAY Got the survey and upgraded to the deluxe version. Can't wait till this gets to the house.

    12. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on January 3

      @Jonathan: You're welcome! I'm glad you were able to create it and play. :)
      Sorry about our oversight on the "Parts" back. I appreciate you letting us know. We are now fixing it and will upload the corrected version shortly (there was also an arm with the letter B in mirror image).

      Thanks for the print and play - printed and played for the first time yesterday. Great game I think! One thing - the back of one of the flames has the number 2 in mirror image!!!

    14. NingaubleOTSE on January 1

      Thank you for the clarification :)

    15. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on January 1

      @NingaubleOTSE: Thanks for asking! Yes, you can add the playmat via the Pledge Manager. We will launch the Pledge Manager on January 2. You will receive an email to access it then.

    16. NingaubleOTSE on December 30

      Now that Christmas is over, I'm hoping to grab the player mat when the pledge manager opens up. Will this be possible?

      I join Andrea in thanking you for the Italian translation, and for taking into account the funder’s feedback on the rules... It’s awesome to he somehow part of the project! You did a wonderful job: despite having supported a bunch of Kickstarter lately, this is by far the title I am craving to get!

      It meets, I'm positively surprised by Italian language and I thank you for that

    22. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on December 13

      @Andrea: At this point we will translate into:
      German, Spanish, French, and Italian.

      Does that meet your needs or are you interested in another language?

      @Giacomo: Thanks! The comments on the file are great. We incorporated them all now.

      Hello, I saw in the last update that rulebook will be translated. Which will be the languages available?
      Thanks

      Nice job on the rules by the way! I added a couple of comments on minor details, but it looks already really professional!

    25. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on December 13

      @Giacomo: Great question! The cards are 63 x 88 mm. The Retail edition will have 80 cards and the Deluxe Edition will have 83 cards.

      Giacomo Grimaldi on December 13

      Hi! I apologize in case the question had already been answered, but can we have an official confirmation about size and number of cards? I want to sleeve these beauties!
      Thanks.

      @Scott: Yes, you can upgrade to the Deluxe Edition when we send our the pledge manager invite in a few weeks. Thanks!

    29. Scott Stefanik on December 7

      I'm just curious if I can increase my pledge when the survey comes out. I realized that I pledged the regular game and I would take like the deluxe version.

      @Mark I see this is your first kickstarter which is cool, welcome to the addiction lol. So after a campaign ends it takes usually 2 weeks for kickstarter to go through everything and send the creator the funds. Once that is done it is than down to the creator to send out a survey, sometimes this is quick as they may offer additional stuff to add on but if they don't that survey is usually sent out closer to the time of shipping. In that survey they will ask everything that you have pledged for so you will be able to say you want 2 copies of the game and where to send them. As this campaign has addons it may use the service called backerkit which reminds me of an amazon shopping cart. You will have your normal pledge already selected and than a credit of whatever amount you added and can use that credit to select items and add them to your shopping cart before checking out. Hope that makes sense. If you have more questions when the survey hits be sure to ask here and we will all be happy to help.

      Concats on funding! :-)

    32. PieceKeeper Games 2-time creator on December 6

      @Mark: We got your payment this morning so you are good to go! We'll ask for your address in a few weeks (you'll get an email). Then we'll keep you updated as the game are manufactured and eventually delivered by July.

      Feel free to ask other questions! We are glad for your support.
