Global Gladiators! We have some updates on a few ongoing topics. It's been really exciting seeing many of you talking about your gameplay experience and showing off end game scenarios and some awesome paint work! Be sure to continue sharing and bringing even more life to the Street Masters universe.
Our translators have worked really hard on these and we're almost ready to release them to you for download. Currently Italian and Portuguese are complete, French and Spanish are waiting on us to get back to them to finalize, and German and Korean are still in the works. It's been exciting to see this progress and we are looking forward to doing the same for all of our future games.
Great news! Our Canadian friends should have already received PayPal reimbursement for the FedEx charges or a confirmation for any special requests we're honoring. For those who have not received reimbursement yet, please make sure you had e-mailed us your PayPal address or else we could not process it. For the two backers who are not able to use PayPal nor would like credit towards games items, we are waiting to hear back on a secondary solution for you. We'll get back to you in a couple of days with instructions for you.
It's been slow, like SUPER slow I know. As some of you have already inquired, our QA parts are handled in-house as a one-person show. Blackbox isn't able to help us with these so there's literally only one of us who is doing it by their lonesome. We're trying to put together as many as we can during the week, then send them out on Saturdays. Because of the limited QA pieces we were given by the factory, some of the requests require us to open brand new inventory boxes for 1 part so we're trying to sort through to see how we can maximize the utilization of these parts. That means we're only able to get to a chunk in at a time so please continue to have even more patience with us during this process as we'll make sure to get to all of you as soon as possible.
Street Masters Unleashed Reminder
From the Street Masters Fan Page on Facebook: We’re seeking some amazing gameplay photos and videos in order to help spread the word that Street Masters is now unleashed upon the world! What that means is that you’ll be competing in two different categories:
“Best Photo”: Take a fun photo of you and your friends playing the game, or take an artistic shot of the game components in action! We want some awe-inspiring pictures!
“Best Gameplay Video”: Record yourself playing the game with friends, or solo! We aren’t looking for long-winded setup or how-to play videos; just jump straight into the action! Of course, you can explain rules for the audience at home as you play! Oh, and a full playthrough is preferable, but not mandatory!
A winner will be chosen for each category! Yes, that means that 2 lucky participants are going to win the grand prize!
Wait, what IS the grand prize exactly? Well, how about the chance to be A CHARACTER IN STREET MASTERS? That’s right! If you’re one of the two winners, you will work with Adam, Brady and Blacklist Games to create:
1 custom Ally/Rival card, featuring original art depicting YOU as a character
- matching tokens so you can use your character in-game
Think you’ve got what it takes? To enter, you’ll need a Board Game Geek (BGG) account (and a YouTube or Vimeo account if you want to submit a video). Then, follow these easy steps:
1- Upload your photos to the Street Masters page on BGG (https://boardgamegeek.com/…/street-masters-rise-king…/images); make sure the image tags contain “Street Masters Unleashed”
2- Add your video to the Street Masters page on BGG (https://boardgamegeek.com/…/street-masters-rise-…/videos/all); make sure the video tags contain “Street Masters Unleashed”
3- Using the same email address you used to back Street Masters on Kickstarter, send an email to email@example.com with the subject line “SM Unleashed Contest entry" containing the following:
- Links to a maximum of 2 of your BGG photos you’d like to submit as entries
Link to a maximum of 1 of your BGG videos you’d like to submit as an entry
Note that emails with links to more than 2 photos and 1 video will be asked to resubmit following the rules. Also please remember that additions to BGG can take up to 24 hours to appear, so give yourself plenty of time to add them!
Street Masters Unleashed closes Saturday, June 30th, 11:59PM EDT. Should give everyone enough time to receive their pledges and shoot something! Please read the Contest Rules below for extra details, and post any questions here! Good luck, gladiators!

Looking for Street Masters?
For anyone you know who are kicking themselves for not backing our campaign, we have a few solutions for them that we're working on now.
Limited Online Store: We tallied up our very limited remaining inventory for the campaign and will have items available on a temporary online store. We'll post a link once it's ready but essentially it's the same offering as the items from our Street Masters Kickstarter.
GenCon 2018: Yes! We will be at GenCon this year. Our booth number is 2907 and we'll be by one of the two entrances to Exhibit Hall F. At GenCon we've reserved to bring whatever we have left of our initial Street Masters inventory. We'll have Street Masters and Brook City available for demo and for veteran Street Masters players who are attending, we'll have daily events you can attend that will give you an exciting NEW challenge you won't forget! (But more on that later).
Aftershock: Rumors are flying around about some form of Street Masters Kickstarter coming after the production of Brook City. While not an official update to get into the details of what to expect, because of the high demand and exciting exposure we've been getting, one of the main purposes of Aftershock is to create more inventory for mass retail distribution. Because of this, anyone who missed our previous campaign will have a second chance to get in on it and help unlock new stretch goals. Those of you who already have everything and are looking for ways to expand your game, Aftershock will have this and more (we've been listening to your wants and needs!) Keep an eye out for more spoilers as we get closer to the launch.
Street Masters has been hitting the tabletop industry hard with all 4 of Kemono's fists. Check out some of the great press we've been fortunate enough to have recently:
And for anyone who missed Brady at Origins (2:23:16): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1QKMkmS74Y
Per Blackbox, with the exception of those who have contacted us, all shipments have been fulfilled. If yours have not, and you have not already contacted us, please send us a Kickstarter message immediately and we'll see what we can do to get you your games. For those who Blackbox are investigating solutions for, we are working closely with them this week and next to take care of you so you can start playing soon!
