Campaign Update #59 - Final Samples are here!
Hey there backers,
The samples arrived this week so let's get straight into it...
You can view a higher-resolution version of this video here on YouTube.
So, the TL;DR is the game is ready to go to shipping. But lets address a few errors we've found in the final print run that will be fixed during the second print run. In the mean time, we will be assembling an errata document explaining the correct course of action when encountering these errors.
While we wish we were able to pick up these errors earlier in the process, we feel these are relatively minor ones that don't detract from the game and it’s certainly not one that we feel should delay the project even further
This was addressed last week. Basically, an extra D12 was thrown into the game during the assembly process. Enjoy the extra dice.
The information in the rulebook was not properly conveyed in the board art. Instead of saying 4+, the final contract space says 5+. In this case, the rulebook is correct and the final contract space is filled when playing with 4 or more players, not 5 or more.
Master Crafter Crew Card
The text on the card says "Place an extra Skill Token on your first unsuccessful Forge Action each turn". The term Skill Token is a holdover from a previous version of the game and actually means Work Token, as there is no skill tokens in the current game.
Rulebook - Solo Variant
In the chapter regarding the Solo Variant of the game, under the Final Scoring section, it refers you to page 11 to calculate your final score. The final scoring calculation is on page 12.
On to Fulfillment
So, this means we're on our way to fulfillment. Tomorrow, the logistics peeps at Rule & Make are locking in a shipment date with the manufacturing factory and from there, it's a week to move on to the freight forwarders.
This means that, if your details have changed since the end of the campaign, you NEED to make sure they are up to date in the Kick'd Pledge Manager.
Next week, I'll be talking the logistics peeps to hopefully get an estimated logistics time frame, or, at the very least, explain how we plan to run the logistics side of things with a rough idea of times for each.
Thanks again for backing us. We'll see you again next week with more Smiths of Winterforge news.
