What an amazing finish! 

Today, Tainted Grail campaign officially finished on Kickstarter, being the 4th most funded Board Game ever! Thank you so much guys - there are over 41 thousand backers who believed in us and we will do everything in our power to make the best game for you all! 

Of course, this amazing finish deserves a small comic from Ewa ;) 

 Soo... No more final SGs...? 

We hear you guys. Even after the last update, there was a small "void", as if something extra was missing after such a great success. Well, we still stand by the words we posted in the last update, BUT just because the campaign is over this does not mean there are no surprises left. 

On the contrary, we have a long tradition of adding bonus content during the development phase and we want to continue it! 

After the campaign we'll have much more time to come up with awesome additions - and if the costs will be reasonable we will do it ;) (obviously having all the suggestions from you in mind!). 

One journey ends, another begins

We will continue to work with you guys on the game after the campaign! Obviously, due to the character of the game and potential spoilers, we will be only able to show you just a small portion of the material, but we would love to continue taking your ideas and continue our cooperation with the community! 

What's next...? 

Well, now we get some rest. There's a new year coming and 2018 was EXTREMELY busy for us all. It was a good type of busy thou ;) 

We will get back to you sometime next week with a breakdown of next steps and a timeline. 

This is it, guys. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for being here with us and supporting us with funds, ideas and feedback! 

On the same note - have an amazing 2019. We hope this new year will be full of awesome adventures and that all of you will be able to find a little bit of magic in your daily life! Have a lot of passion and pursue your dreams! 

Thank you!

      So, I don’t remember ever choosing which shipping option I preferred. Is that part of the survey that will be sent out in a week or so? Just trying to make sure I’m not missing something 👍

      Po raz. Pierwszy wsparlem cokolwiek na KS. Oczywiście, obawiałem się tego. Teraz, kiedy już jestem po, muszę powiedzieć, że nie bolało. Mam nadzieję, że gra będzie tak dobra, a wręcz jestem przekonany, że będzie lepsza, jak pokazywał prototyp. Gratulacje AR i sukcesów w przyszłych kampaniach.

      Wow, what a great campaign. Even though I haven't supported many games to the end yet, I have a very good feeling about you, even though it's still a long time before the game is released.

      I'm sure you deserve your holiday. Come well into the new year 2019, treat yourself to a nice breather and we will let you surprise us so wonderfully again.

      Happy New Year to you all!

      Hi AR,

      Can the color words (ex. Purple, blue, etc.) be printed in their respective colors on the cards? This would be a nice helpful visual indicator/reminder if cards are referencing purple/blue/etc. encounters. See Oldsteel Smasher.

      I was watching Rolling Solo’s YouTube finale of Chapter One where he mentions forgetting about the purple text on the Oldsteel Smasher. It’s one of those things people overlook sometimes. Additionally, a purple cube (same material as the red cubes) could be placed on the Oldsteel Smasher.

      Hope you like the suggestion!

      Congratulations!!! This was and epic campaign. I became aware of the Nemesis KS in it's last days, but I'm glad I was on board from day 1 for Tainted Grail. Being able to give you guys my input throughout the project is a lot of fun even if my vote doesn't always come on top.

      It was a very interesting campaign and keep up the good work, but for now please rest a bit so you can come back in full force for 2019.

      Happy New Year!!!

    24. Greenslime on

      Like many others this was also my first KS experience and you guys made it one hell of a ride. Congrats on finishing it with such great success! I am seriously gonna turn grey before you start shipping this masterpiece. There aren't much things one waits for so eagerly..god damn.. Gollum complex inc. ... anyway
      Have a blast into 2019! Cheers Ladies and Gents

      Have been following this KS and after reading, watching videos and looking at the Tainted Grail's KS site, I decided to try out a new genre.

      So much content for so little money - got to love it.

      Time to prep this one up for my channel.

      Cheers

      Gratuluję udanej kampanii, trzymam kciuki za ostateczny kształt przedsięwzięcia. Nie mogę się doczekać Aktu pierwszego po polsku, to będzie coś niesamowitego.

      Pomyślności w Nowym Roku!

    32. Angelika on

      Gratuluję sukcesu! To mój drugi (a pierwszy jeśli chodzi o gry planszowe) projekt wsparty na kickstarterze i pierwsza gra figurkowa, jaką będę posiadać. Już nie mogę się doczekać kiedy dorwę figurki i będę mogła zagrać. Życzę Wam bezproblemowej produkcji i takiego samego sukcesu z wersją elektroniczna jaki odnosicie zawsze z Waszymi grami planszowymi, a sobie życzę cierpliwości. Maj 2020 jeszcze tak daleko! Powodzenia!
