Five flippin' digits!

Oh yes! We've just crossed the $10,000 line! Thank you to our newest backers and to those of you who upgraded from the Get a Game to Double Dragon reward.

Another barrier we are excited to crash through is the language barrier. Thanks to our backer Mylene and her friend, there are now directions for Hoard available in French (Règles du jeu en français) on the BoardGameGeek site. I'm working on the final how-to-play video, featuring a professional narrator instead of the dulcet(!) tones of yours truly, and once that is ready, I'll be adding French captions to that as well. Meanwhile, Fabio Piovesan is working on Italian directions.

Meanwhile, here is a burning question, just how would YOU flip a dragon? 

Please vote for A or B in the comments. 

This question may be more contentious than the treasure chest survey. "B" was the clear winner there, which means the artwork for the base game's 56 cards is now final.

Did someone say artwork? That's my cue to present to you Hoard's fourth character:

Sir Guy
Sir Guy

Isn't he...magnificent? Tim has two additional characters in the rough draft stage. Fingers crossed we can reach the five and six player stretch goals so they can be brought to life (full color anyway) just like Sir Guy, Vera, Captain Hogarth, and Esmeralda.

      For the people saying "A is easier as the edges of the cards are free" - remember that in-game there will be cards all around the dragon.

      Looking forward to the game, but sorry don't like the latest artwork.

      It looks far too feminine for a knight on a dragon's treasure quest. The face even looks female

      I know it's only a game, but given that he is called Sir Guy, I have more than a passing interest ☺

      My brain wants to say B, but A is easier with the cards being up against each other on each side. I would flip whichever way left the dragon still drawn whole (not disjointed).

      Seems I missed this! Vote for A if it's still relevant. GJ on the video, time to spam this everywhere you can :D

      I say C - bottom to top ;)

      I agree that Exhibit A seems the most natural way to flip.

      Graphically it makes most sense with B, but as the top and bottom edges of the cards are exposed and the sides are not it has to be A.

      Exhibit A seems the most natural and easy way. I say go with that! :)

      I vote for flipping the dragon cards vertically, choice A. Because of the way the cards are situated it seems quicker and less awkward that way.
