 Nerds on Tap Report

We recently had a great day out at Dragondaze, a great medium sized one day con in Wales. We ran two gaming tables which were both full pretty much all day! Take a look at the video to see people's reactions to Creature College.

We like to support game stores around the world by offering the special Kickstarter versions of the game to retailers during the campaign. We treat retailer backers just like other backers in that they receive their rewards before we release regular retail games into distribution.  

If you're a retailer, please contact Orhan at orhan@happyottergames.com during the campaign for pricing information.

The first five card stretch goals are alternate cards that you can use with Creature College. They don't have any extra effect in the game but they do look cool! These cards will only ever be delivered as Kickstarter rewards. They won't be available at conventions or in the retail copy of the game.

 * The Creature College Cup will be a small wooden cup about 3 cm high that you can give to the winner of each game to let them know how awesome they are!

** We are working with Tabletopia to give access to all backers so that they can play the premium digital version of Creature College completely for free! If we don't make this stretch goal then it will still be available but it will be a paid service. The service will be available once Tabletopia launches.

Thank you so much for asking! 

We really do appreciate all your help. We'd like to hit the ball out of the park with Creature College so that we can deliver you a great game with cool stretch goals but also continue to produce more awesome games in the future. So what can you do to help make it happen? Well foremost help us spread the word about the Kickstarter. We've added some awesome social avatars below that you can use but the best help you can give is to talk about us! We also love your ideas. If you think we could improve a game or just create something new and really neat drop us a line.

Risks and challenges

The risks involved in Creature College are minimal. As you can see we already have a high production quality prototype and working with our printer we've ironed out the kinks long before we'll go to a final print. Almost as soon as we hit the end of our campaign we'll be ready to start printing games. We're also working with two of the largest distribution partners in the world for fulfillment who are a tried and trusted method for delivering Kickstarter campaign rewards.

"That means you'll deliver before Christmas right?" Honestly, we'd love to but that may be a bridge too far. We've listed March 2016 as our delivery deadline but we hope to get your game to you far faster than that.

All that being said this is our first Kickstarter project and although we have over 20 years experience in delivering complex projects in large companies it's possible that something unforeseen can always happen. However we have done and will continue to do everything in our power to mitigate any risk.
