Final hours & stretch goals, Live stream today
Wow, what a day yesterday and today - we knocked out all our stretch goals!
We're nearing the end of this wonderful campaign and are so thankful for your support, ideas and encouraging comments. How high will we finish and will we unlock any surprises?
Read on for:
- Final stretch goal updates, including a couple last minute fun surprises
- Live stream tonight @ 6 pm CDT
Unlocked Stretch Goals
We unlocked our final 8 goals since our last update!
Of most importance, we added the 4 plastic player trays with lids as a Kickstarter limited upgrade. If you want more info on the player trays, check out our previous update here for GIFs and a detailed explanation.
Then we unlocked 2 more solo rebellion cards.
Followed by a nice linen finish upgrade for the box and cards.
We also added one extra Agenda card.
And then unlocked alternate character art for the solo mode opponent version of Sviatopolk. (The art shown is the original art, alternate art coming soon).
Finally we added the last Intrigue card. It is a very powerful card that will limit your options for 1 round!
We also unlocked the final 2 solo rebellion cards. We really want our solo players to have a lot of variety and unpredictability from the AI!
Finally, we upgraded the playmat add-on to be 44% larger than the game board (previously it was 20% larger).
Final Stretch Goals
We reached the end of our originally planned stretch goals - much sooner than anticipated! However, we came up with a couple fun goals to end the campaign.
At $160k, we add silk screen printing to the giant bear meeple. Let's make the bear meeple even more cool! Note: the exact silk screen pattern may differ slightly.
At $165k, we will add a mini card featuring the amazing dog illustration from Mstislav's artwork. This dog has received a lot of attention from players and we figured we may as well give you a better way to enjoy its art!
On the back of the card, we'll include some historical information about historical hunting dogs.
We need your help! What should the dog be named? Submit your ideas in the comments - we'll then do a backer vote on the name and acknowledge YOUR name on the back of the card if you come up with the winning dog name.
Final Note on Stretch Goals
A quick note on our stretch goal model - we create complete, high quality games from the start. With stretch goals we upgrade the quality even further, add new artwork, and increase replayability.
Many of you suggested some great stretch goal ideas. We were able to add some of them - many of them aligned with what we had already planned. We even added some unplanned components based on your feedback (the goods randomizer tokens - we had playtested those extensively, but weren't sure players wanted them - and the rebel reward tokens, although the rebel rewards were not a stretch goal).
Please keep in mind we did reduce the gaps in our stretch goals based on backer feedback early in the campaign.
Thanks for your understanding - here's to a great finish!
