The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Posted by Attack Dice, LLC (Creator)

Quite a few items on this update. As the title implies good and bad news. We'll start with the bad and work our way to good.

The Bad. After countless play test sessions and demos we have slightly changed the mechanics of the Poison and Chaos dice to where there is no need to have tokens to use these optional dice. The final version makes use of the Poison and Chaos dice themselves as counters and it works a lot better without adding additional elements to the game. This is really not bad news but we did advertise tokens with the dice. To make up for it, see The Good below.

The Ugly. Well, there was a 50/50 chance we would not make the November/December deadline and its more like 99% sure its not going to happen. We finally nailed down the last of the manufacturers, but at this point we are looking at 3-4 weeks before delivery of the last component. So that puts us at January 2014. I know this may be getting old to some of you who anticipated having the game before the holidays as originally planned. No excuse here, other than its just the nature of the beast. If anyone has ever tried to publish a multi-component product, you would understand.

The Good. The good news is that more components have come in (see photo). A summary of the game components and status is found below. Also, to make up for the Poison and Chaos Tokens John and I are throwing in two more Follower Cards as shown below.

      Could we still order a dice bag before it ships out?

      The correct ETA for the Plastic Token is Jan. 2014.

      Thanks for the update. Personally, I prefer the dice being used as the counters (as a general rule) as I think it's streamlined and more elegant of a gameplay solution. Fingers crossed this comes together in January. And hey - at least you're not spending the holidays frantically trying to get boxes out the door.

      Kirk, you still get all the additional dice and now you have two more Adventurer Follower Cards on top of that. The tokens was to keep track if the Adventurer was Poisoned or cursed by Chaos, but the dice double as tokens and works more fluid. The gold and magic item plastic tokens are still in, just to clarify.

      So what do the Bone Collector packs include now that the tokens are gone?
