      Ah cool so it's an instant upgrade but you must wait a turn before it's fully activated, nice touch and makes sense. Just didn't want to use them incorrectly, thanks :)

      Hi Wouter! Inbox us with your email and we'll send you a PDF! The e-books and 3-hour learning resources are in your backerkit digital downloads.

      @Steven Alvis
      They're counted as upgrades and modifiers for ships, so as long as they modify a ship, you have to wait till your next turn before you can attack :)

      @T.Jones, Lisa Douthit
      Yep! Add-ons were recently charged not too long ago, but those have already been queued for dispatch (unless they contain t-shirts)

      It is looking great! Thank you very
      Maybe a silly question, but My mother in law trew away the manual (don't ask):
      * Can I download a pdf version of the manual?
      * where can I find the instruction videos ?
      * Where can I find the EBook and the 3hours elearning transition into python?

      Rules clarification, Re: Dutchman & Megachip.

      Is it when you draw them you can add them immediately or do they act as build upgrades (like building a ship)

      Sorry if this was explained before

      Lisa Douthit...I am right there with you.

      Lisa Douthit The way I understand..If you had add-ons (plushie, etc...) then those are setting in China until after the Chinese new year.

      Thanks! Even if there’s only 2 players left (which ends up meaning I simply steal 2 - or 4 - potatoes from the person I just robbed of Potato King cards)?

      @Wallnip Elvenshire
      Hi there! When you get attacked, your crew goes to the Great Potato Farm in the Sky, but when you get hijacked, they make a run for it and take a swim - unless you have a ship for them to seek refuge on your next turn, they end up getting waterlogged and drown. If you lose all your ships via Hijacking, but still have crew left, you can buy ships.

      @Giacomo Grimaldi
      You still lay them down and the others will have to be on their toes and not be the last to salute "Potato King" ;)

      HI Comodo and friends of potato pirates, quick question, when i get attacked, my crew dies right? they do not walk the plank and go into the sea right? BUT if i get hijacked, all my crew walks the plank and goes into the sea.
      i am asking because this makes a difference in whether i can use these potatoes to buy a new ship in the event i lose all my ships during an onslaught.

    13. Neelz 2 days ago

      Played my first couple of games today, great game but way more cutthroat than I expected. Well done.

      Rule question: if I play “Loot” against a player who doesn’t have any card in his/her hand, but has one or more revealed Potato Kings (so basically it’s obvious to everyone that I am taking one or two Potato Kings), do the other players still have to salute when I lay down the PK next to my ships? Or should we do as when you gain PKs by beating an adversary, i.e. I get the PK but nobody salutes or pays penalty potatoes? Thanks!

      Help me Potato King, I think my package is with delivery people here in Sweden, but the tracking info doesn't indicate who is the shipping agent here so I can't contact them and find further info before it goes back to you! I do know neither my partner nor I have been contacted despite the tracking info stating a tried delivery, you need a code to get into the buildings here.
      Thanks for helping

      Mandaluyong City Post Office.
      Dated:(February 04, 2018), and please note Ma'am/Sir that this is for pickup.

      Thank you & Best Regards,

      Received my deck 2 weeks back, and took it along on a night out with friends. Initial thoughts were - it's too confusing!!! But learning pace was super quick, and soon we were screaming "Potato King" at the top of our voices! Super fun. If only there were more types of exclusive cards (like the Invisible Ghost Ship!) which made it even more interesting.

      @Fernando Valle
      Hi, we don't have a Spanish physical copy! Only our print and play has Spanish.

      @Robert Patridge
      We don't know any sleeve providers, but the dimensions are 88mm x 63mm!

      Hello, I get an English version, I asked for the Spanish version because I am a mentor in Coderdojo group and some children don’t have high level in English. How I could get the Spanish version? Thanks in advice.

      Sorry about that, matey! It got lost in the clutter when Potato King and crew were looking through their mailbox. We're getting him to reply you now!

      No response from my messages so I'll ask here.
      I still haven't received my tracking information, I've received the backerkit email of the charges but that's all.

      Have all games been shipped or is it just the early buds?

      Be great to know more, thanks.

      Heyo! Tuberawesomes just got done stocking up for their journey, so they're being sent out soon!

      Oh dear! We're sorry to hear that. D: Thanks for the feedback!

      @Jonathan Degele
      We've responded to your query on our other platforms! :)

      @JW Verzijden
      Oh dear D: It seems some of your crew has gone AWOL. Don't worry, we sent an extra set of crew with every order, so there's still enough for 5~6 players. Thanks for letting us know about them pesky little scallywags though. We'll have to tighten up discipline.

      I picked mine up lastweek. about to start a game checking the contents, it seems like not all potatoes fit in the bag and im short a few.. got 13big ones and 67 small ones. the booklet states 14big ones and 70 small ones. Im using real potatoes as substitutes :) everything else checks out.

    43. Steven Alvis
      on February 10

      I'm guessing the Early Buds are the ones people are receiving at present, so it's likely others will arrive afterwards

      Thank you i just received the game yesterday, it looks great

    47. Shu on February 10

      Picked mine up from the post office today. The box is a bit faded and squishy for the potatoes as others have pointed out. My pin has come through the security bit and stabbed the box a few times so I've a few holes in the box. Luckily the potatoes and cards survived though. The box was well padded so no dents on the outside but perhaps need more padding to back of pin to stop it from destroying other components.

      @Creator: thank you very much. Makes sense now. And now it is time to play :)
