Campaign Update #13 - Surveys, Playtesting, and Add-ons

Posted by Table Tyrant Games (Creator)

It's been two weeks since the end of the Kickstarter and we're expecting the funds to arrive early next week. Once they clear, we'll be able to get the ball rolling on a few major elements of the campaign. But, in the meantime, here's what's happened this week.

Reward Surveys & Pledge Manager

Reward Surveys went out just before the last update and, so far, all but 39 have responded so it's looking pretty good at getting everything rolling into the pledge manager.

A few of you messages us to say you're having trouble getting access to the survey. Surveys were sent using Kickstarter's built-in survey system, and it appears they recently changed how this gets displayed to backers which created some confusion.

For anyone having issues, if you go to your Kickstarter profile you should see an alert telling you that you need to complete your Smiths of Winterforge survey. Alternatively, click on "View Pledge" here on the campaign page and it should show you the survey. Should you still be having problems, please get in touch with us and we'll help you get it sorted out.

So, now we're just dotting our "i's" and crossing our "t's" when it comes to the data import into the pledge manager. Once we have that locked down, we should have the pledge manager up and running by next week. Meaning, if you want to add extra copies to your pledge, or grab a few more add-ons, you will be able to do so.

Playtesting Continues

Just like last week, we're playtesting the content expansions to ensure nothing too crazy happens when it hits your table. There has been lots of laughs, dice rolling and terrible Scottish accents in the last week. We can't wait to get Smiths of Winterforge to you.

Art is being prepared

This week, we briefed Jamie on the new crew cards for both the Thieve's Guild and Auction House expansions, and are discussing our options regarding the art sleeve and extra board art. We should have some great art pieces to show you in the coming weeks as well.

Tavern Fame Add-Ons

We're waiting for the funds to clear (which, as said above, we're hoping will be early this coming week) before we can start shipping out the Tavern Fame add-ons so, if you backed for a copy, keep an eye out for a request to double check your shipping option before we pull the trigger on the send. Shipping for these should take 7 - 20 days depending on the delivery address.

That's all for this week. We'll keep an eye out on the comments over the next 24 hours and answer any questions that come up.

      So I also backed Entropy - Worlds Collide and get Sunday night updates from Rule & Make as well. So come clean and admit that you guys hang out in a pub in Brisbane somewhere and write these for us together right? :)

      Thanks for the update! I can't tell you enough how nice it is to get weekly updates. Makes it seem like *gasp* you guys actually care. It's so frustrating dealing with other companies who maybe grace us with an update once every few months. We just like to know that things are progressing and even if they aren't, we want to know that too. Keep up the great work, can't wait to play it! Cheers!
