New Stretch Goals and Nearing One Million Dollars!
Hi HEXers. We hope your weekend went well. Here at Cryptozoic, we spent the weekend finishing our Stretch Goals, doing interviews, and playing Gothball which is "baseball for the indoor kids."
We'll be saying "thank you" forever in far surpassing all our expectations on this campaign. You broke through all the other stretch goals over the weekend and here we are with the next set. We have just the legendary tier left to reveal, so let's get through these 3 and then we'll be able to reveal the final goal!
For hitting this Stretch Goal, Knights and above will get Ninja Training plus its equipment.
If the master of any dungeon thinks it's he or she who is setting the traps, he or she should think again! Your clan of cat ninjas (yes, that's a thing) can ambush the creeps of the dungeon and show those dungeon masters that it's they who have fallen into your trap. Once those attacking troops are cleared out, you can use Ninja Training to dig deeper into your deck and bury the opponent with all your skills.
Additionally, all levels from Squire to Producer will receive the exclusive "1 Million Dollars" sleeves.
We want HEX to be a portal into Entrath. It's a brand new world, so we want to add a motion comic at the beginning of the game to introduce you to the hex moon, shards, the races, and how all those pieces come together to form the story. Motion comics allow us to visually introduce you to the world before you dive in. For hitting this stretch goal, all King and above will get the Aethynia mercenary.
Having trouble surviving those tough dungeons? If only you could have made it a few extra turns to annihilate your opponent. With the help of Aethynia you can beat those dungeons with the grace of an angel. Aethynia is our first angel mercenary that will help you survive the PvE experience while bringing a heavenly host of angels to defend you and defeat any opponent. Aethynia gives you a charge power and three passives that both help you live long enough to see angels swoop in to save the day.
Additionally, all Dragon Lord and above will get access to a special invite only Gen Con 2013 dinner with Cory and special guests. You'll have to book your own travel, but you will not need a badge to attend this event. We'll put out a Kickstarter message to those backers after the campaign is done and you'll be able to RSVP for this special event. If you won't be in Indianapolis for Gen Con, we'll also be hosting a special invite-only live video event for all Dragon Lord and above with members of the HEX team. This will be post-beta release where you'll be able to ask us questions and virtually hang out with your fellow big backers.
Hey PayPal friends. We're currently at $48,601.37. That puts you just a few hundred dollars away from the latest Stretch Goal tier! If you have friends who can't back via Kickstarter, please let them know that they can donate here and will get all the same rewards, including stretch goal rewards: http://hextcg.com/donate/

That's all for today. I mean, until you all annihilate these stretch goals and I end up having to post the next reveal tomorrow. Haha! Thanks again for your continued support and please keep sharing this campaign with your friends across the forums you visit, on social media, and anywhere else you know there are likeminded people who have been waiting for a game like this. The sharing helps so much and with each pledge, we're able to put more resources into HEX, making it the game we've always dreamed of!
