Print and Play is ready
Just in time for the weekend, all who pledged $15 or more in our Kickstarter campaign will shortly receive an email from me via Kickstarter containing the confidential URL where you can download and print the files to make your own copy of Hoard. You'll need to add a d6 die, some character tokens, and possibly some coins, poker chips, or buttons to serve as victory point and Jester Cap tokens.
We're eager to get your feedback, and if you notice any issues that should be addressed in an FAQ on Hoard's website, please let us know. We think Hoard's directions are comprehensive, but it's possible there's a slant we didn't consider.
In other news, our manufacturer put together and we have now approved the eproof from all of our files. This allowed us to see that there is room to include a total of four turn reminder cards plus two blank cards for those wanting to add their own variations to the game.
The next step will be to receive and review a digital proof so we can make sure the colors of the box, cards, dragon, character pawns, and tokens are right. I've also asked for a "white" copy of the box and liner, which should let me answer definitively about whether it will be possible to sleeve the Hoard cards, as at least one of you has asked.
I'm also happy to report that the Kickstarter funds cleared the Cheeky Parrot account yesterday and that all but $149 of your pledges went through, which I think is just spectacular. Thank you again for supporting our project.
