Update #8

Stretch Goal Unlocked, More Stretch Goals!

Good morning HEXimaniacs. I hope you ate your vitamins and are energized for today's update. Once again, you all blew away another stretch goal in record time. Every single morning, we're overcome with joy from your generosity. It's not just the amount we've raised, but the number of backers. Every time that number goes up, that's one more person that will be in the game drafting, clearing dungeons, wheeling and dealing in the Auction House. We know that community is the most important part of a game, and we're so happy that the number keeps growing. 

The VIP Program is a go, and Champion backers on up will have a free 3 months as VIPs. Congratulations! This means we're introducing two more Stretch Goal tiers. At 600K, we're adding three raids to PVE launch! We have a general idea of the dungeons we'll be tying these raids to, and if you think you're going mad waiting for us to reveal them, then just wait until you see these new raids. The madness does not end there. ;)

Let's not forget the reward. Every Squire to Producer will receive three free booster drafts! If you've never drafted before, it's like making a game out of opening packs, something you already love to do. We'll have lots of tutorials, guides on how to play so by the time you're ready to use your three free drafts, you'll be a seasoned vet. You can also check out lead designer Ben Stoll's guide on drafting here.

At 660K, we'll introduce 5 more game boards. You've seen the standard game board in our How to Play video with its flames of battle, but imagine fighting on a icy glacier or in the Shin'hare jungle!

As for the reward, all Knights and above will receive Moment of Glory and all equipment for it. 

Plus, in case you're still shocked from reading the reward above, let me repeat it: we're going to give you one more copy of every single Kickstarter exclusive PVE card aside from Spectral Lotus! Wow! That's one more Lady Cassandra, Void Marauder, Spectral Assassin, Prospero, Orson's Dream, Scourge Knight, Wrath of Zakiir, and the newly introduced Moment of Glory!

PayPal Donations

We're up to to $18,235! Whooo! If you can't back here on Kickstarter, you can always donate here and you'll receive all the same rewards, including Stretch Goals: http://hextcg.com/donate/

      You had me sold the moment I came across the kick starter. Loved what you guys did with the dc deck building game and can't wait to get into this game.

      @ Caleb:

      That is certainly correct, but why: There has to be a connection between development and additionally "earned" money. Ok 3 new raids, sounds like work. A subscription-feature... is not work at all.

      Somehow I sill need to see a relation between additional pledges and stretch goals.

      @ mewkow:
      I prefer KS-campaigns which attract bew backers, not trying to milk existing backers.

      Stretch goals aren't meant to be easy. They are there to entice you to stretch your backing a little more to try and get them.

      @Joel: They already said in the comments of a previous update that there are no plans for free tournament play (other than as kickstarter rewards). I believe that there will be free PvP but it would only be in a pre-constructed format. They also said that they would consider some type of free guild practice tournament structure.

      Creator Caleb Kester on May 16, 2013

      Clarification, you don't pay for the booster packs that you use in the draft.

    11. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Caleb Kester on May 16, 2013

      Three free booster drafts means entry means 9 free booster packs right? We won't need to pay for booster decks?

      Creator Joel H on May 16, 2013

      I am super excited about this game! I've been itching to play it since the first day this kickstarted. Hurry up and give me beta access already! ;) :p This is seriously an amazing concept, and I'm loving where you're taking it.

      I was wondering if there are any plans for FREE PVP in the works? I would love to be able to practice Sealed and Draft formats without worrying about spending a bunch of money. Obviously we wouldn't be able to keep the cards afterwards and there would be no rewards, but I think it would be a lot of fun to be able to potentially play with cards you may not be able to purchase, and as a way for less skilled players of the format to learn without the high cost of failure. It may even get PvE-specific players interested in the PvP aspect of the game.

      Looking forward to new game boards. I'd love to see some Shadow and Light game boards (Holy/Darkness)

      Creator Pariahzkope on May 16, 2013

      I think it's awesome that you're looking at stretch goals for PvE and PvP, to keep things balanced (and to be honest, the other stuff is just a perk to that, since we all donate for an amazing final product, not all the shineys).
      I hope to see this continue to grow, and look forward to the beta! :)
