Have a question?
Played the base game at BGGCon this week - very impressed! Looking forward to the full production in the spring.
@KooLio - will let you know. right now, we don't have a date on that. Can't wait to get it everywhere!
When do you open de retail PM?
@gigigun - the latest update has the rulebook pdf link.
@Jorge - absolutely! We are working on pdfs for 8 languages! When you fill out your survey, you can select to receive one of those with your English edition game. Additionally, we are talking to partners about localization of the game entirely. News to come on that front!
Hi, where can we download the final rulebook?
Will you translate it into other languages?
Thanks for all the updates Peter! It's really encouraging to see the progress and I'm definitely getting stoked for this game. I can't wait to try it out on my group.
@ Peter - Great news! Of course I will read a Dutch translation carefully and will give suggestions for improvement, if needed.
@Tom - we have a Dutch translator! I met him at Essen, great guy, Wim - and he's already halfway through. You're in luck! We'd love your thoughts on that version when ready.
@Peter Vaughan: I am Dutch, so a Dutch translation would be fine, but perhaps I can make a translation of my own...
@Tom - Thank you so much! What language do you want to read when we have the rulebook ready in that version?
@Robbie - helpful instructions thanks to Danny D below! Go to this link, enter your E-mail address (same one that you use for your Kickstarter account), then click on the "Get My Survey" button:
Hey I don’t see a link to the pledge manager anywhere, I am rather sure I already did mine but want to make sure safe than sorry!
Have downloaded the rules and give it a quick look. It looks clear to me, and this game looks so beautiful too! Still super exited about this, and I know my little group of play friends will be also! (As I am not fluent in English, I will leave it to others, to drag the typo's and mistakes out of the game book - if there are any...)
Thanks in advance, you have done a great job already!
@Michael - the leader abilities are printed on cards. Due to space reasons in the rules, we opted not to print the exact card text (we wanted to, but since you'll be holding the card in hand, you'll have it), and we just printed the clarifications and flavor in the book. Thanks for checking!
Hi I just went through the rules and I noticed that the leader powers aren’t really explained. Examples are given but we aren’t told what their abilities exactly are. Is this information on the player boards?
@Thomas, Jens and Ben - thank you so much! We are deep in production, and this cheering on is amazing. Great timing too, as I was working on the update (just posted). Hope you like the rules!
I hope, hope we can get the game in March, but it's too soon to say for sure. We picked up some potential partners in Essen (which is great news, subject of a future update), but the exact timing of production will also be TBD. Everything is coming together!
No pressure, but my Birthday is in the middle of March. It would be a great birthday gift....
Still looking forward to what I expect to a true gem.
Everything still on schedule for delivery in March? :-)
Sending love and good vibes to everyone working on this project.
@sirjonsnow - Breaking Games will be at PAX Unplugged. I don't believe we'll have a copy of Rise of Tribes at the booth. I'll update in November either way. Thanks for asking!
Are you going to be at PAX Unplugged?
@Mike - Breaking Games is at PAX Aus, but without Rise of Tribes this time. You can still catch Asking For Trobils in our booth (TT200) which is newly released. Have a great PAX!
A few of my buddies and I will be at Aus Pax this weekend, any chance there will be a playable demo running at your booth? Mike
@Thomas - will post in an update on production. It's a bit early yet to talk shipping, but we'll keep you posted. Thanks very much for checking in!
Any update on estimates for shipping? I’m UK based if that helps
@Tobias - thanks for asking, didn't miss it. We're in Hall 7 - 7D102. I hope to see everyone who can make it out. I'll post an update soon about that and the state of things. We have several meetings in Essen about the game, and the rulebook ready to share!
Did I missed it?
What is your booth in Essen17?
Thanks for all the comments!
@Greg and Richard - it's always so amazing to hear your game is highly anticipated, thanks so much for saying that! We can't wait either!
@Matthew Bower - the hex size is looking to be 80mm flat-edge to flat edge, 94mm corner to corner. The reason for that size will be clear when I show a preview of the hexes fitting in the tray. :)
@Mike B - we are not in production yet, so no updates on shipment dates at this time. We'll send an update again soon, and I expect a production timeline by our Nov update.
@swampfox01 - no worries at all. Backerkit does default to high shipping at first but then adjusts. Glad you caught it!
OK it must have glitched. I just went back in, and shipping is now $7 for deluxe. That appears to be correct.
I just completed my PM and shipping for the deluxe version to the US was $21!
Is this correct? It seems a lot higher than expected. Please clarify and confirm!
Just adding my name to those super excited to get this laid out on a table in front of me and show it off! Can't wait.
Any updates on product shipment?
What size hexagon tiles did you guys end up choosing?
Definitely one of my most anticipated games of this year on KS, I am excited to get it on the table.
@PacificNW Gamer - Awesome to hear from you! We're getting close to another update - I'll send one by end of Oct with the latest and greatest news. Cheers!
It's been a month since the last update! I'm so excited for this game!! When can we expect the next update!
Glad to hear it, hope i didn't ruin any surprises
@District 31 - you are welcome. We're glad to have you for tribal council and lockdown.
@Phill - thanks for the message! Don't worry - your fears of floating sabertooths and lost villages shall not come to pass! We have a wonderful tray planned. (Actually set of trays). All will be revealed. I've been modeling the tray in 3D and discussing with the team and the plant. I'll share in a future update!
@Jens. Thanks! We're can't wait either! We do have flavor text re: the leaders, which is on the KS page. I'll cover the leaders in a future update and show off their powers in detail, along with some BGG posts so we can cover strategy of each!
Peter: Thanks for keeping the PM open until the end of the month. Need to get my pledge level in there and locked down. Can't miss my mammoth! :D
So after looking at the Grimm Forest's most recent update they added these trays to keep the materials easily accesible for when playing the game. Take the tray out on the table open it up and you have easy access to the materials. When I look at this game something similar would be of great use. I'm also not seeing anything here for a insert inside of the game box, which in my head mean everything will be floating around and that I will have to get a lot of ziploc baggies...
For the record: still very much looking forward to bringing this game to the table!
I don't recall... is there anything resembling flavour text regarding the different tribes and their leaders?
@Justin - forgive the delay, the invite should be resent.
@R. Schuyler Devin - we have a hotmail email address for you. If that is not the correct one, please send us a PM to breaking games acct and we can enter a new one.
@Cristina - the meeples will be painted, and we trust will be beautiful!
re: backerkit lockdown and orders. Looking at a lockdown and charge at the end of the month. Will post about it in the next update.
@Peter Vaughn I replied to your message, but haven't heard back. I replied again. Please help me.
@R.Schuyler Devin: Yes, in August. You should have recieved a mail from breaking games, check you spam folder.
maybe you can get help here:
Has the pledge manger link been emailed yet? If it did, I did not receive it. Thanks!
Anyone knows if the meeples will be plain wood color or will they be painted?
@QuoteStar/Peter - Thanks for the info, I'll be standing by!
Hey there Loremaster J.B. and Jens - I am investigating with Backerkit and will let you know. I was under the impression that it wasn't until we closed the survey that it was charged. If it's tied to lockdown, I will get that info and put that in the next update with our plans. Thanks for asking!
So when can we expect to have it locked down?
Usually credit card payments through backerkit aren't charged until the creators lock it down.
