New Artana Game Now On Kickstarter - Speakeasy Blues!

Hi everyone! You're getting this since you previously backed our Best Damn Metal Gaming Coins and our newest game launched on Kickstarter this week – Speakeasy Blues!

We'd love your support and we just added a ton of juicy stretch goals so please come check out the campaign!

 

From Daryl Andrews and Adrian Adamescu, designers of Sagrada, Speakeasy Blues takes you back to New York City of the Roaring Twenties. You and your fellow players run competing gin joints vying to be the talk of the town! Willie "The Lion" Smith is at the piano, jazz is in the air, Chaplin just walked up to the bar, and the flappers are starting to dance. Life is good. This is the story of Speakeasy Blues.

Grow your clientele, hoard hooch, dabble in crime, throw fabulous soirées, and more - the choice is yours... But choose wisely - only one speakeasy will be the bees knees at the end of the game!

Speakeasy Blues is a light-to-medium weight dice placement game for 2-4 players that takes about an hour to play. Full details are on the campaign page so come join the project and make the 20s roar again!

Thank you for your support.

Hi everyone - yup, it's April and it's Kickstarter time! We're not ready to talk coins again just yet, but stay tuned for news there in the future.  For now, since you previously backed our Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever, we did want to let you know that we just launched a surprise Tesla vs. Edison project on Kickstarter! Happy belated Easter and any other cause for celebration - get ready to take TvE heads up!

Tesla vs. Edison: Duel, our newest addition to the family, is a fun, easy-to-learn, 2-player card game that takes less than 30 minutes to play. Duel distills the epic War of Currents to its essence while still preserving all major areas of play from the original smash hit.

Play as Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, or one of six other famous inventors and lead your company to victory. TvE: Duel allows players to build electric projects across the US, trade shares of minor electric companies, develop the latest technologies, and wage PR battles on behalf of their chosen power type - all in less time than it takes to finish lunch. Full details are on the campaign page so please come join the newly refined War of Currents today!

Thank you for your support.

Hello again lovely coins backers.  We hope you're all enjoying your lovely beauties in games around the globe!  

No new numismatic candy to report just yet, but just a quick update from the team here at Artana letting you know that our latest project, Einstein, just launched on Kickstarter today.  If you're looking for a new project to back while savoring your Best Damn Gaming Coins Ever, we'd love you to come join the campaign.

Play as Einstein during one of four periods during his life.
Play as Einstein during one of four periods during his life.

 

Einstein is a co-op / competitive abstract strategy game for 2-4 players. This will be our lightest game yet. Play is very accessible using simple tile-laying mechanics. Strategy, however, is subtle and offers good depth for hobby gamers despite the short learning curve for new or more casual players. Game time runs 15-30 minutes and takes you into the life and science of everybody's favorite genius - Albert Einstein!

 

Thank you so much for your support.  Hope to see you in the campaign!

The headline says it all!  We just received word from Ship Naked that they've finished sending out all backer orders for the campaign.  If you haven't received your coins yet, you should be getting them very soon!  

If you have any concerns or problems with your order, you can always contact us, but you'll probably get faster resolution going directly to them.  They've provided us with info which we've copied below on how to handle various situations with them.  Again, the buck does stop with us though so if you have any issues with them feel free to also contact us directly.  Most of you though should receive your rewards without issue so enjoy and get them to the table!

Preorders have also started shipping and will likely be complete this coming week. Address verifications were sent a few days ago and we hope to wrap these orders up quickly as well.

In short, it's been a great campaign and we're incredibly grateful to all of you for making this project a success!  We hope we'll see you in future campaigns, at conventions, and that you generally keep in touch.  We wouldn't be here without you!

Thank you again for your support.

Shipping Continues!

A fabulous Friday to all of you wonderful backers.  We're headed to Origins next week, but wanted to post a quick shipping update before we left to keep you posted on how fulfillment is coming along.

Coin goodness ready for picking at the warehouse

As you can see from the picture, we stopped by the warehouse ourselves this week to check on things.  We're pleased to report that Ship Naked is doing a great job working through all of the orders and getting packages out to everyone.  

Individual orders picked and ready to ship!
Individual orders picked and ready to ship!

So the big question - when will everything be done and when will you get your coins if you haven't already?  Soon, very soon!  A number of you have commented that our updates and estimates on fulfillment are a little vague.  This is actually intentional given the lack of certainty here. It's a fine balance we're always working to strike correctly. We try to keep you all posted with current info, but we also want to be sure not to promise anything we can't deliver.  Rest assured though that we do our very best to get everything out as quickly as possible and are relentless about keeping things on schedule.

With that in mind, here is the hard data:  The new totals as of today are 446 orders shipped with only 174 left to go!  At this rate, Ship Naked tells us that all backer orders should be fulfilled by 6/24 if not a bit sooner.  Again, no promises, but we think that's a reasonable estimate based on progress to date.  And, of course, we'll keep monitoring the process and updating you until everyone has their coins!

That's all until our next update. If you're at Origins next week, do stop by Booth 707 to say hello!  We're bringing a few sets of the new coins to get the word out and we'd love to show you the new beauties personally.  We'll also be demoing our new Tesla vs. Edison: Powering Up! expansion throughout the show!

Have a great weekend all.  Thank you, as always, for your support.
