About

Both previews were conducted with an early prototype.  Some of the imagery included in these videos is not representative of the final version.

 Gaming With Edo Previews Island of Gems!

 Just Got Played Previews Island Of Gems!  

(3-4 player rules have since been updated and changed since this review was filmed.  Just Got Played was given a prototype that featured only 2 player rules for 3-4 players.  We noticed this caused some players to not feel like they are in control so we created special rules for more than 2 players.)

Live playthrough with Mel Primus of Five24 Labs and Darrell Privey on 3-23-19.

Risks and challenges

We are very committed to this project and fell in love with it right away. This game is everything we ever could have hoped for and because of that, we are determined to see this succeed. Manufacturer quotes have already been received, we've had a couple reviewers preview the game, the game has been extensively playtested with various groups of people as well as at demos and with each different gameplay addition to ensure quality gameplay and last but not least, we already have an idea of what we need to do. Our first Kickstarter did not succeed due to lack of funding. This was a huge disappointment but it made us more determined to create something that everyone would love. There is passion behind this project and everything we could have planned for in advance has already been thought of. Yes, there will be unknowns and challenges will arise but ALK Games will make sure to reward you with a wonderful product if you help us reach our goal.

What have we done to make sure this will succeed?
Gameplay mechanics are final, the art is almost final aside from small cosmetic issues, we've planned out a timeline based on the manufacturer's projections, we've received a quote for costs, we've planned out shipping arrangements, we've had our game previewed by two reviewers, we've extensively playtested our game to ensure quality play and we have passion. Everything else we will take in stride :)
