Have a question?
The rulebook has a couple minor issues we corrected before we went to press. We'll get it up on BGG soon. We need to give the BGG page a once-over to see if we can do any more with it anyway.
Hey @Crafty, I just noticed that the rulebook hasn't been uploaded to the BGG page yet. Am I allowed to do that, or is the rulebook considered "backer only" content?
For anyone else who wants to sign up for the newsletter, you can do so here:
Remember: This is the only way to get a free Malatium Allomancy die with your pledge reward.
@ Alison T - Thank you for the kind words. We think they're super spiffy, too.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for that verification. Be sure to include the email address you think you used to sign up for the newsletter, or the one you'd like to add if you're not on the list yet. It's best if it's the same email address you use for your pledge, as that's how we'll verify.
@ Crafty - Is there any way to confirm the promotional Malatium die for being subscribed to Newsletter? I'm fairly certain that I signed up for the newsletter when the kickstarter first went up, but it would be nice to know for sure. They're super cool dice that I can't wait to use with the Mistborn Adventure Game. :)
@ Matt - Hm. Please send us an email at email@example.com. We'll get you sorted.
I double checked this and do not have the option to update the card details. Maybe this is because I didn't add anything on in the pledge manager?
Thanks keith and crafty. Will double check.
@ Keith - Thanks so much for stepping in and explaining that step! We really appreciate it.
@ Matt - Please let us know if you have any other questions, or run into any further trouble.
@Matt Hobday - When I look at backerkit for this project, in the bottom right corner is listed the credit card I have on file with a big button under it that says "Update Credit Card."
I hadn't realised shipping wouldn't be charged yet. The card i originally paid on has now expired. I cannot see a way to change payment card in backerkit
@ Sarah - You're probably going to have to special order commander-sized sleeves. They exist, but they're not commonly stocked in most stores. These are the ones we used for our demo sets.
@Crafty Thank you for the sizing! Do you have any recommendations for sleeves? I had a look in my local game shop and the largest they had was 82x124mm
@ Sarah - The House sheets are commander-sized - that is, 3.5 in (88.9 mm) wide x 5 in. (127 mm) tall. This was a conscious decision as there are already sleeve options on the market for oversized cards with these dimensions.
@ Keith - Maybe. We'll have to see how the expansion comes together.
If the SoL sideboard (folded or not) fit in that big square.... :)
@Crafty What is the card size for the house sheets? I know it has been said before but I can't find where that was. Thank you!
@ Sam - Probably not. We tried to future-proof for the expansion but since the components there may still shift it ultimately proved impractical. We're pretty sure there will be a side board, for example, but its size is still very much up in the air.
@ Richard - Great news! We're glad the timing worked out so well for you.
Great news! :-)
Yay. Conveniently, the timing is perfect for me. I'm moving from abroad to the US just in time to receive my copy. Thanks Crafty for being so considerate... ;-)
Great news in the update can't wait to begin playing this. Will there be space in the main box to accommodate the SOL expansion?
New update's live. You can find it here...
The new update is probably coming later this evening. We're in the Pacific time zone and today's been as hectic as any in the last couple weeks. It's a good hectic, though, so we can't complain too much! :)
It's 19:30 for me on Monday already. I'm still holding out, though.
Are we talking monday afternoon, monday tea-time, monday-dinner time, monday-nightcap time :-P :-)
We have had a very busy couple weeks working with the factory and shipping partners, so we haven't had time to put together a lengthy update as we normally do. We're working one up now and will post it on Monday.
So, it's been a month since our last update. Just curious if we'll be getting another one soon. No pressure, just curious. ;)
@Crafty Games - So we should get our base game sometime this summer? Before gencon? And then the expansion will ship next year? Just curious, also how does the shipping costs work? Thanks can't wait to get this!
Thanks for the update.
I'd rather it be as awesome as possible and wait a little longer than get something less finished.
@ Robbie - Yes, though for entirely different reasons. After the Kickstarter campaign ended and development on Siege of Luthadel commenced in earnest, Kevin Wilson expressed some well-reasoned reservations about the schedule. We're currently reassessing that schedule based on Kevin's first design doc for the expansion and how much work we feel the expansion still needs before it's ready for full production.
As soon as we have a firm release window for the expansion we'll post about it here, but you shouldn't expect it to drop until sometime in 2018.
Will SoL be delayed a couple of months like MB:HW?
@Kaloni: You can still add add-ons. Click here: https://mistborn-house-war.backerkit.com/master_backer_accounts/sign_in
Is it too late to pledge more for another add-on?
@ Herowannabe - Wow, that *is* a good day. We're stoked you had so much fun! That's awesome!
@ Richard - Thanks for the interest! Open playtest calls are rare. For Mistborn: House War we already had many eyes on the game with our various home groups * plus Kevin's groups and the Dragonsteel crew. We still wanted more voices in the room, though, which is why we reached out to folks like Herowannabe and others to get their feedback.
Hero's right that being active on our forums and in social media on our channels is a great way to get our attention. We watch for folks with keen analytical insight, constructive drive, and other key traits, and periodically invite folks into the fold when they've already proven they have the passion and skill to help with the process.
If you just want to watch places for open calls, then the Bounties forum is one option. So is our Facebook page, though to be honest it's unlikely we'll host any mass-scale open playtests anytime soon.
* We're a distributed company in three locations along the Pacific coast of the U.S. So if you're in LA, Portland, or further north there's a chance you could catch us at UnPub and other events where we test-drive our games with strangers.
I suppose that would do it. If GenCon (or any other Con, for that matter) ever came to Southern India, count me in!
You would have to ask Crafty for the exact criteria they use when selecting playtesters, but I imagine in my case it's some combination of the following:
- being a prominent and active poster on their mistborn adventure game forums ( http://www.crafty-games.com/forum/index.php… )
- Having a decent amount of interaction with Pat and Alex directly (in my case, mostly through the forums and a few emails, but I imagine if you were to hang out with them at GenCon that would help too. I think they occasionally ask for volunteers to help run their booth and stuff. Keep an eye on their "Bounties" sub-forum on their site).
- Being a huge advocate of the Kickstarter they did 2 years ago for the Mistborn themed dice.
- running several demo-sessions of the MAG at my local game store over the past year and a half.
In short, just become a huge fan of Crafty Games, particularly their line of Mistborn products, and go out of your way to support them, then hope they take notice. :)
One question Hero,
How did you get a playtest copy? I'm jealous.
Had a couple friends over for a game night tonight, and after playing a couple other games we were in the mood for a negotiation type game so we busted out my playtest copy of Mistborn House War and played twice. My one friend who had never played it before and has never read Mistborn ended up winning both games. Halfway through the second game he decided he liked the game and the setting enough that he would give the novels a try, so I lent him the first book.
Today was a good day. :)
Yeah ;) No problems. Luckily there's more then 1 train. :-)
@ Iluvatarimo - Oh no! Hope you got home OK. :)
Missed my train because I had to read the update before I left home... :-P
@ Luke - Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you sorted. Thanks!
Hey, I can't access the Backerkit website, and my payment information has changed.
We just posted a massive update on shipping, production, and more. Click the Updates tab above and it's right at the top of the list. Cheers!
@ Alex - We're planning to send DriveThru the assets they need for set up later this week!
As long as you're putting together an update, is the DriveThruCards site going to come online when the game ships? At least for me, seeing the rulebook and cards has got the juices flowing for some custom card ideas.
Nothing to fret about. It's all good news - just logistics, which are sometimes hard to wrangle.
Hmm I'm not sure if that's worrying or exciting...
Looks like our next update will be coming in very early next week. It's a huge chunk of information and needs a little more time to pull together. Also, this will ensure we're all around to answer any questions that come out of it.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone! Don't forget this is your last chance to sound off on the rules, cards, and sheets, if you have any feedback.
Hello everyone! We just posted the quickstart & rulebook for your review. The link to get to them is in the latest backer-only update.
We're also preparing a lengthy and informative update on other aspects of the project, which should arrive later this week. Meanwhile...
@ Alison T. - Thank you for posting about the Humble Bundle! Everyone should check it out. It's a fantastic deal, and also supports charity. :)
@ Adam - As or right now, the July shipping date still holds. There's one potential hiccup that we detail in the next update, but we don't have enough information yet to say whether it affects the timeline. Right now we're assuming it doesn't, but we're also crossing our fingers just in case.
All digital rewards except Alloy of Law: Masks of the Past were sent out months ago. If anyone is still missing those, please email email@example.com so we can sort out what happened and get you the files you're due.
Thanks! More very soon.
