FUNDED! and time to stretch
I want to thank you for doing your bit to help Hoard reach its funding goal. Tim, Beck, and I are simply thrilled and humbled by your support and encouragement. I want you to know that I have opened every email Kickstarter has sent me when someone new backs our project. I was surprised to see that many of our backers look like this:
Just kidding! But it was always extra cool when you used your avatar to convey a bit of your personality, and clearly, we have some real characters among our pledgers:

We've got some great momentum going now; we just attained Stretch Goal #1! Stretch Goal #2 will add linen finish to the cards plus an interactive card for 3+ player games. The crown is worth three points, but when you secure it you must give a token worth two points (which we'll unveil when we get there) to another player. It may be early in the round and hard to tell who will do well, but you don't want to risk having it stolen out of your hand at sword-point...on the other hand, if you discover it late, the round could end before you can secure it, costing you a three point deduction.
