Five player stretch and questions to die over
Hoard fans, we've now unlocked the first two stretch goals, which means the dragon will be printed on sturdy, easy-to-flip boards (and thanks to your input, he'll be printed to flip top to bottom) and the cards will have linen finish and include the tricky crown interactive card. This evening I took Hoard along to the Pt Chev Games Night. The crown certainly added extra fun to our 3+ player games...though not so much when you discover it and before you get another turn to put it down, it gets stolen from you at sword-point! Then again, the perpetrator felt so bad, she gave me the two point token in sympathy. Tonight we used a plastic poker chip for that, but Tim has whipped up a draft copy for your feedback:
We're now working to reach stretch goal #3, which is a big one: the addition of a second punchboard so that we can include a fifth player (as seen in the Board Game Geeking update) whom we have decided to call Rowan. Tim thinks with the extra space the second punchboard will give us, the tallest characters should be about 5 cm high. If we hit this target, we'll also release the Print and Play files to all backers at the $15 level or higher, so you'll only have to wait until next month to get a taste of Hoard.
Finally, here's a big question and we're looking forward to your input. The custom die can be any two Pantone shades. Tim and Beck have whipped up four possibilities to get our discussion rolling. We welcome your comments and votes:
Less than 48 hours to go now! Cross fingers for a big finish.
