Hey everybody! We just wanted to update you on where we stand after about 48 hours on Kickstarter. At present, we’ve raised just over $1,000 of our $16,000 goal, which means we’re pretty far away from funding. Admittedly, this is not where we want to be. Now, it’s only been 2 days, so we’re not trying to get all doom-and-gloom here, especially because we’re taking Titans to two big cons over the course of the project. We’ll be at Dreamation in Morristown, NJ next weekend and PAX East in Boston the first weekend of March. Most people who have played the game really like it - as the backers who played at UnPub and backed the project can attest - so we’re hoping to pick up speed when we get it in front of people.
But, in the mean time, you can help! Please tell your friends who love board games about the project and encourage them to back. Also, by sharing the word on the web, you’ll be able to help us unlock some of those social stretch goals! As it stands right now, we’re at 111 shares. That’s only 89 away from unlocking a backer-chosen unaligned titan. Will it be a harpy? A gargoyle? Something someone suggests?
Lastly, we’ve had some questions about the number of cards in the game given that each play deck is only composed of 28 cards. While the components section lists 204 cards, I want to outline the composition for you:
- 5 Dragons
- 5 Manticores
- 5 Griffons
- 5 Pegasi
- Each deck comes with a copy of the 21 different generic maneuver cards (that’s 4 of each of those).
- Each deck comes with 3 more duplicated generics (another 12 cards). These 3 were chosen to specifically work with that species’ strengths.
- Each species has 11 different maneuver cards that work only with that species. That’s 44 more unique cards (and you get 2 of each so that’s 88 more cards in total).
Once you’ve played once or twice, you can experiment with different maneuver cards. Want to make the generally aggressive manticores more defensive? Want to give the pegasi a lot of active maneuvers to absorb more damage? There are lots of different possibilities for customization of both your titan squads and your maneuver decks.
So, please help us get the word out about this project, and if you’re going to be at Dreamation or PAX East, be sure to stop by the Nine Kingdoms table!
