Greetings Donut Lovers...
There were a lot of comments to our last update about the preview of the updated GNFD cards from our partners, GameWright. Some liked the new designs, some offered constructive critiques, and there was an unexpected level of dissatisfaction. We heard all of your feedback, collected it, and presented it to GW. We had a good conversation about the feedback and the direction we, DMG and GW, wanted to take with the game.
What I have for you, today, is the update of the previous designs. There might be a few more tweaks here and there before the game goes to print, but this is near final.
The card fronts now use the same chocolate color from the card backs for the game text, improving the legibility that some had remarked on. Also, the donut names now match the color from the lower half of the cards to bring more cohesion to the designs.
The card back, as requested by many commenters, now features the GNFD logo!
GW also assures me that the plastic insert will accommodate sleeved cards. And you'll get all of the KS cards in the box that will not be available in the initial retail release. GW might do an expansion later, but there are no solid plans for that yet.
GW showcased GNFD at the New York Toy Fair last month; it was a tremendous success and resulted in more retailer pre-orders than any other new product in their catalog. They were very excited, and so are we! The future of GNFD looks bright and it's all thanks to all of you!
I'm actually pleased with this graphic design update, and we hope you are as well. A few of you may still be unsatisfied. We take our backers seriously, so, we're making the following offer to every backer:
- When you receive Go Nuts For Donuts please open it up, take a close look, and play it a few times.
- If you're still dissatisfied, we'll refund your pledge with no hassles.
- All we ask in return is that you donate the game to a school or library near you so that others CAN enjoy the game.
We hope you'll all find that Go Nuts For Donuts is still just as fun as you remember it being. In fact, GW has continued to test and balance cards and rules. But if you're not happy with the final product, no worries. We understand. We're happy to make it right with a refund.
Thanks For All Of Your Support!
