New Updates, Stretch Goals, and German Edition Info! - Project Update - 06Dec2017

Posted by Corey Wright (Creator)


It's just a prototype being shown (and doesn't include all of the stretch goals or final art) but here is a short video of what box packing will look like for Mountaineers! Still got lots of space and room for additional cards and extras!

More Stretch Goals Already?!

You all are amazing! We just hit the $125,000 stretch goal for the mobile web-app for the AI climbers, AND the linen finish on ALL playing cards! Great work! Let's keep it up, and try to close in on those social goals and the exclusive promo card! We need: 


More Important Updates!

Mountain Maps Extra:

We are changing the Mountain Maps extra, based on feedback from you and your fellow backers! You can now purchase 1x set of 6x unique double-sided jumbo sized Mountain Map cards at $4.00 per pack. 

Same pricing per set as before, but now you can adjust quantities to meet your specific gaming group needs! 

Convention Announcement:

Massif Games will be hosting a booth at PAX South in San Antonia, Tx, January 12 -14! More info to follow, including how to find us, and how to reserve a game session! Looking forward to meeting many of you and having a blast in the lone star state! 

Spieleschmiede and German Translations:

Starting at 5am in the morning, Sven and I spent 2 hours hashing out the details of our agreement. Here's the plan!

  • Spieleschmiede will launch a campaign to translate Mountaineers into German at 10:00 AM German time tomorrow! 
  • If they raise 7,500 Euros, they will provide the English Edition games with German cards and rules. 
  • If they raise 17,500 Euros, they will license the game from us and create an entire German edition! 

Important Details for German Backers:

  • If the Spieleschmiede campaign is successful, you can automatically convert your English edition copy from this Kickstarter to a German edition copy from Spieleschmiede. Spieleschmiede has agreed to help us provide the best experience for our current German backers, and will work with us to do this.
  • If the Spieleschmiede campaign is not successful, you will be able to purchase German cards from us. The rule book is included for free, as promised at the beginning of the campaign. 
  • We recommend that you keep your pledge (at least $1.00) in Kickstarter, so that you can make an educated decision, based on how the Spieleschmiede campaign does. Additionally, you will want to be able to access the extras and add-ons in our pledge manager, including additional cards in English or other languages at a discounted price. 

 Want some more add-ons to help us get a few more stretch goals? Here you go! (These will also be available later in the Pledge Manger.)


That's it for now! See you guys in 4 hours on Kickstarter Live, and keep up the good work. Thanks for backing and making this campaign such a huge success! (:

      Hi Robert! You are correct, we can't guarantee anything. However, our potential cofounder knows German, most of my best friends are German, and my wife and I have considered trying to move to Germany at some point. Also, half the people on our gaming email list are German as well.

      So, trust me when I say, there is a very high chance that expansions will be released in German as well. (:

      Have you considered yet how you will treat potential future expansions to the game concerning languages? I am both interested in the German language version and the expansions you will hopefully create, however I would not want to have English and German cards mixed in one game game. But I suppose you cannot guarantee that future expansions will also be translated ?
