Sparkle*Kitty Nights - We Ship It!

We're so close to GAME KNIGHT!! The boats are en route, and then it's packing up all the copies of Sparkle*Kitty, Sparkle*Kitty Nights, Safe Words Pack, Quantum Pack, Adventure Pack, Blank Pack, Team Tokens and Princess Promos to send to all!

FRIDAY, MARCH 1 - Deadline to lock addresses, change orders

As we wrap up, please make sure your latest address is correct on backerkit. We need to finalize our lists and double DOUBLE check them, so we need to lock these down by March 1. There's still time to edit your order or your address. The link to check your backerkit survey is https://skn.backerkit.com/ 

If you cannot upgrade your order (because it has already been locked), please send a mail to us at hello@breakinggames.com and we'll unlock your order and help you out.

Don't Rock the Boat - It's Almost Here!

Some games have reached shore, and the rest are coming. The last piece of the puzzle is the team token packs, which look fantastic (proof approved). They'll be air shipping to join the rest of the goodies and then it's shipment time in March. 

PAX East - Let's start this party! - BOOTH #TT81

We have a trio of Sparkle*Kitty princesses that found us in our tower in PAX Unplugged and volunteered to come and help demo at Pax East in Boston! Thanks to Katherine Koschel, Tiara O'Neal and Lisa Marsillio - you rock the SK universe!

 -

Also, we've got Designer Manny Vega to join us on the East Coast for an epic release!

We'll have games to demo, and you all should get your copies around the same time. If you are attending PAX East, we would love to see you and say thanks for being a SUPER MEGA AWESOME and sometimes NAUGHTY SK fan! 

Cheers,

Peter and the team at Breaking Games

The Knights are coming!

PRODUCTION UPDATE - TOKENS

Ok, so what about those Team Token packs? These are the reason for the extra delay, but they are in fact on track now. Below is a photo of the tokens: They look great, they feel great. They had 2 issues, now being resolved.

The fronts are getting a white border to keep the identity part easier to hide when face down. The packaging also came out too big at first. Unfortunately, this pushed us past Chinese New Year where our plant will shut down, and we have to ship everything together. We are however spending additional money to expedite the tokens and have everything begin shipping in March.

Team play for Sparkle*Kitty!

Fall Sparkle News!

Hello fellow Knights of the Sparkle Table!

We have missed you! The summer and fall have been full of conventions and things and meanwhile we are waiting eagerly for Sparkle*Kitty Knights and all our new expansions!

 --
Ok, so aren't you done yet? Fair.

Well, we've had files done and in the queue to print for a long time. As it turns out August is the time all the Chinese plants make all the holiday stuffs. The good news is, we totally accounted for this in our timeline, and are still on track for delivery date in Feb. We are almost next in production, and then we'll have fun pictures of a pre-press copy to share, foil cards, tarot sized and all!

STORE AND CONVENTION UPDATE

Sparkle*Kitty is doing well in stores, especially since putting the bigger box in more big box stores this summer. The base game can now be found at Walmart, Barnes & Noble and Target. Of course, it's not as cool as the copy you're getting, packed with bonus princesses, expansions, safe words, not-so-safe words and most of all - LOVE! So much fun is coming! We love that moar sparkle is getting out there everywhere.

Sparkle*Kitty continues to sell out at conventions too! Both Gen Con and Pax West went well. Sparkle*Kitty at Gen Con was not only demo'd by us, but by fans as well, and every hour of the day had games going! A few early demos of Nights made it to the table as well, and the game was adored.

We're going to Germany NEXT WEEK. Sparkle*Kitty returns to the biggest game convention in the world, the International Spieltage! If you're there, you have to say hello at booth 4D102!

SHADOW*KITTY

A dark wind is blowing through the Breaking Games office and making us feel positively spooky. It seems like something wicked this way comes~

In honor of Inktober, here's some art from the amazing Leah Artwick for our next project in the Sparkle universe!

We are working on a version of the game with witches and familiars, that will work with any other SK universe game, ala the mix and match cards. It's a bunch of fun and there are powers and animal noises for lots of laughs.

Sparkle*Surveys Coming Up, Files Prep for Print

Hi all,

Just checking in to say that the SURVEY is coming up soon. We're hoping to send it out this week, so keep an eye on your inboxes. We'll look to get surveys answered in July, and get files/print quantities locked in for mid-July. 


JUNE - TESTING, GRAPHIC DESIGN

We've been busy in the month of June, working on the press ready files for Sparkle*Kitty Nights. I should say that Manny has been the the most busy! He's been creating card files for Sparkle*Kitty Nights (hundreds of card files including an amazing 18 characters!), as well as the graphic design of the cards and rules in every expansion. We've been perfecting rules for vampire and werewolf modes. These team variants add a lot of flavor to the safe words pack!

Sparkle*Kitty GEN CON! - Sneak Peek at Shadow*Kitty!

Last year at Gen Con, our early release copies of Sparkle*Kitty sold out in minutes at this show, and this year, while our main focus is on new releases, Rise of Tribes and Expancity, we do have Sparkle*Kitty and Sparkle*Kitty Nights Demos - with the designer, Manny Vega! If you're headed to the show, say hi to Manny and ask for a super secret test of Shadow*Kitty, where witches will turn this familiar game upside down! Only a few seats left in Sparkle*Kitty Nights demos - link below!

Enjoy your game time with friends and family!

SUPER MEGA HUNGRY THIRSTY F***IN' UPDATE!

Whether you found Sparkle*Kitty last fall or on Tabletop Day or here on Kickstarter, there's something magical about it and this community, and we're absolutely thrilled to have you all here with us, creating new exciting cards and characters for this universe! 

WE HAVE FUNDED ALL STRETCH GOALS and are prepared to make both SPARKLE*KITTY and SPARKLE*KITTY NIGHTS shine on tabletops and shelves all over the world! 

THANK YOU from Shari Spiro, head of Breaking Games and Ad Magic, and all our sales, manufacturing, fulfillment, design and development, art, community and pr teams. 

We make big and small party games alike, but as an indie game studio, each one is a special effort, a personal connection and a journey, and none are more cherished than Sparkle*Kitty when we see kids, adults (kids at heart) laughing and finding THEIR game to share.

THANK YOU from Manny Vega, creator of Sparkle*Kitty. He writes, "Ever since the first moment I put the original Sparkle*Kitty in front of players, what has struck me the most about this experience is how much people can invest themselves in a silly game about matching words. Whether they identify with a princess/knight or they are enjoying the freedom to say "Jiggle Panda" or "Donkey Butter" out loud, I love that our fans jump in 1000% percent. It's been my absolute pleasure to meet, speak, play, show or just deliver this game to you. I hope it will continue to bring all you magically*sparkly people together to laugh, play and be yourselves."

We also want to say how excited we are to see the community embrace a female cast of heroes, full of diversity, tearing down towers! It means the world to us to feature badass women in illustration and so we thank you for that support, and thank our fantastic illustrators for their hard work and killer characters.

We now have 14 knights, 16 princesses, 2 dragons and 2 monsters! We have 2 game boxes, team tokens and 4 expansion packs! What an epic tournament this will be someday ;) 

After a brief break, we'll be back with art updates, survey info, and more about these great games in production.

Cheers! 
Peter
