Have a question?
Thanks - I'm glad to see many people already signed up at pivitgame.com and interested in what happens next.
I'm hoping a better price will ultimately be seen as a win for everybody (except for a time delay).
Shame dude. Was looking forward to this Kickstarter succeeding. Signed on for the updates! Keep at it!
I already signed on your website. Looking forward to see this game become a reality. It is just a matter of time.
Hi Chris. You never know. We just may be able to get $40,000 in 20 hours.
No, just kidding, we're hosed.
Tomorrow, when the campaign ends, I'll send out an update about the future of Pivit. This campaign may fail, but I am not giving up on the game, and I want to give everyone a chance to see what we do next. And what's next is all about a lower price point -- although I haven't figured out the details yet.
Stay tuned for one more day, and check out tomorrow's update.
I agree with Zachary. I don't know if you guys will make this; if not, I hope you set a lower target and try again. This game needs to be made.
Our current plan is to use chipboard. This is a more environmentally-friendly version of wood since most chipboard is recycled material. Many Eurogames use a board made from this material. For example, I believe the board for Game of Thrones (2nd Ed.) is chipboard, as well as the player boards in Agricola. It will be covered with another material on which the board pattern is printed.
What is the board made out of? Will it be traditional card board?
Thanks, Zachary! We really want this game to exist, too. For now, the easiest way for that to happen is this campaign. No matter what, I'd also really like to see it published!
I'm rooting for you guys! I hope you have a backup plan for getting this thing published even if the Kickstarter fails, because I want a copy.
thanks so much!! i'll be checking back :D
That's a very cool idea, Marguerite! A good game box/board is expensive, so shipping pieces only would definitely be cheaper, as you suggest.
I'll talk to the team about this, and I'm personally very interested to see if we can offer something like it.
hi Tyler!! you have a very interesting game cooked up here. I'd really love to encourage you to insert a pledge level that would net backers just the game pieces (around 25-30 bucks). most of us have chess boards around the house(or lots of them) and would love to support your efforts here!
Have a merry Christmas and great holydays !! :)
Family is afterall paramount in our lives. They are our rampart against many and most hardships !
Have a Great time and take care of your precious ones and yourself :)
You're right, Math. I will work on adding Pivit stuff to BGG. I might be slow to get things done today and tomorrow, though, as I'm spending time with family over the holidays.
Hi Tyler, If you do not yet knoe of Board Game Geek, this is a HUGE gameboard Fan Base, this site ought to supply you with plenty of exposure and people to read/review and event playtest your little project here :), Of course, I am biased.... thisi only my favorite boardgame reference :),
Yea, the 4-player version is kind of a surprise. To play it, you think like traditional abstract games -- looking ahead at many branches, looking for patterns, looking for paths to corners, number of defenders of a certain square, or figuring out which squares are most valuable.
But on top of all that, there are suddenly hidden alliances or revenge stories added to the plot. Blue killed red's master two turns ago, and you are green. Maybe this turn you can count on red to attack blue instead of you? Sometimes watching a game unfold is like reading a good book to see what happens next - so much can change in one round.
Haha, of course I am completely biased. I am trying to get ways for other people to review this game so future contributors have more info to understand what the game is like.
This looks like it will be a great highilight in my game library. It lloks like it really scales with players tastes and commitment !! Really, an abstract for 4 THAT is INSANE and Marvelous !
A simplified answer is between 30 to 90 minutes, but it really depends on the mood of the players. With four players, or with the 6x6 board, it's easy to play for fun and move quickly. With competitive, thoughtful 2 player games on the 8x8 board, a game can be 90 minutes with each player carefully considering their moves.
How long does a typical game last?
I saw that! Thanks, Kickstarter staff!
Did anyone else notice that when you click on Discover great projects at the top of the page- Pivit is shown on the first page of Staff Picks???? How cool is that????
This game looks terrific.
