Final 48 Hours! New Player Trays, AU Friendly Shipping, Rebel Rewards Update
Wow, we are in the final 48 hours of the campaign! How high can we go and what will we unlock? Please share the campaign with others (online & in person) to help us get there!
Lots of great stuff in this update. Read on for:
- New custom player trays
- Stretch goal update
- AU Friendly shipping
- Resolution on the rebel "rewards"
Thank you to all our new backers - we're so glad you chose to be a part of Rurik.
New Player Trays
It's time to reveal our biggest goal yet that we've been teasing - custom player trays with lids! Even better for you - they are Kickstarter Limited - so don't miss out on backing Rurik! We want to make set-up and tear-down in Rurik a breeze.
That's right - we're adding FOUR custom plastic trays to Rurik (one for each player). Your buildings and advisors fit in the bottom and your soldiers, scoring markers, and leader base go in a bag in the recessed lid.
The lids support the box lid and snap into the resource tray that we unlocked since our last update (see below). And all of these sit on top of the first tray we unlocked, which holds all other game components, with all boards and mats held in place in that tray as well. It's going to be so slick - masterful work by Dan Cunningham!
Stretch Goal Update
Since our last update, you've knocked out FIVE stretch goals - way to go! First, we unlocked the plastic resource tray that is shown above to make it easy to store and use all the resources and coins!
Then we also unlocked 2 more solo rebellion cards (for those paying close attention, yes, we used the same placeholder solo rebellion card image).
Followed by the awesome new 16 thematic scoring markers!
We also added more Kickstarter limited content by means of 2 more Intrigue cards.
And finally we upgraded all cards in the game to premium 300gsm black core cards.
Beyond the player trays, we have a few more stretch goals. It's been a wonderful ride together - let's get them all!
AU Friendly Shipping
After crunching the numbers, we now have enough Australian backers to offer complimentary AU Friendly Shipping! This means that your games will be shipped from within Australia, and therefore you will not be assessed any GST on your orders.
Share the word with your AU friends who may have been holding off!
Thanks to all who contributed such wonderful feedback on the rewards given by defeating rebels. For those who are missed the incredibly helpful and civil discussion (we loved how thoughtful and kind your ideas and comments were!), here's the summary.
- The game has 15 rebel miniatures with stickers on the bottom. When you defeat one, you flip it over and gain the reward shown on the bottom (a specific good, 1 coin, or 2 coins).
- Some backers expressed concern over some minis becoming marked and beginning to memorize where certain rewards were.
- At the same time, many players have enjoyed the "fun" factor of revealing the rewards on the bottom of the rebels.
- We realized it would be necessary to offer an alternative option to giving rewards for defeating rebels. There were a number of options - some more feasible than others.
