Hey backers,

Thank you so much for your support of Rurik and PieceKeeper Games! Day 1 is officially in the books and we surpassed the 50% mark! Day 1 success is critical for a campaign and we are so thankful for your involvement. Let's keep it up!

Read on about 1) day 1 live stream 2) rulebook translations, 3) solo mode and 4) ways you can help.

Day 1 Livestream

Kirk did a livestream to show off Rurik and answer backer questions earlier today. For those who missed it, buried within the video were a few spoilers about things to come, and painted miniatures - so you don't want to miss it! :)

Rulebook Translations

We plan to offer PDF rulebooks in other languages for download. So far we hope to offer: Russian, UkrainianSpanish, German

We definitely need help with Ukrainian and Spanish still. If you would like to be involved in translations, or would like to see additional translations, please reply in the comments!

In solo mode, the AI changes his focus and bidding patterns to vary things up.

Solo Mode

Did we mention Rurik features a really cool solo mode? For those wanting to learn more - by this weekend we'll have a solo playthrough video posted by Robert Geistlinger of the Dice Tower.

Highlights of solo mode:

  • Dynamic gameplay objectives for AI player
  • Unpredictable bidding patterns
  • ~40 min play time

      My wife is translator (russian/english) and speak spanish too. If you would like help in other languages ​​in the future, we also speak Catalan and Latvian (minority languages).

      My girlfriend is native Ukrainian and a translator for Russian/German/English - but... she's supposed to get the game as a surprise :) So I wait a bit if someone shows up. There should definitely be a Ukrainian translation for a "Dawn of Kiev" game.

      I can help with the Spanish translation; I'm a registered translator and both Spanish & English native speaker.
