New Art from The Mico
We're still working our way toward the $60,000 stretch goal, so keep spreading the word to help bring in more backers.
A Resounding No
When we posted the $60,000 stretch goal, we thought we were doing exactly what backers requested. resource-specific 5 and 10 tokens. Like the generic multipliers that come with the base game in Flames and Frost, we made them double-sided, with 5 on one side and 10 on the other. The comments came fast and they were a resounding "NO! NOT LIKE THAT".
So, we're exploring an idea one backer suggested, kiss-cut stickers shaped and sized like the original wood tokens so that you can stick them on the wood tokens. We'll go back to our printer and see what they can do, and we'll have more info when we know more.
In the meantime, it would be great to hear more feedback from anyone regarding the tokens on the stretch goal now, some other version of tokens, or stickers. We don't look forward to putting tiny stickers on 15mm wood tokens, but perhaps we're in the minority here. Please let us know what you think!
New Box Art for Corsairs of Valeria
The Mico has been working hard on finishing up the art for both games, but yesterday he turned in the new box cover for Corsairs of Valeria and I want to share it with you here.
I think it looks super and it definitely helps to convey the theme of the game.
Cutthroats Region - Araby Brigands
The Mico also turned in the final art for one of the Monster Groups you haven't seen yet...The Cutthroats. The Araby Brigands are the backbone of the Cutthroats and you'll find 4 of them in the standard stack, or 5 if you're playing with five players.
The first thing you notice about the Araby Brigands is that it takes Magic and Strength to slay them and both values have a + sign. What's that all about? It means that after you've slain one Araby Brigand, the next one you encounter has their Magic and Strength increased by 1, so that second Araby Brigand takes 2 Magic and 3 Strength to slay. If you've already killed two of them, then the third one will take 3 Magic and 4 Strength, etc....
Each Araby Brigand gives you an end-game VP value, like all Monster cards, but each also has an escalating reward. The first one you slay will give you 1VP token as a reward, the second one you slay will give 2VP tokens, etc.... If you are out to make the Ocean of Nae safe for merchant fleets and pleasure crafts, you could rake up a fair amount of VPs for your trouble.
Thanks for Your Support
