      Dominik, I sent an email to Game Salute, the fulfillment company who sent out the games to backers. They should be able to see what happened to your copy of Dragon Valley. I copied you on the email so, we can take care of this via that email thread. Thanks for your patience!

      ping... still no game here

      Mark, you are right, a rules update should have been made to match the changed hue. I have added it to my list of improvements for future printings/projects. Thanks for the input!

      If the intent was to have them look light gray "not white", why not correct the rulebook to make it consistent before printing? William is right, the game still works but it is something that could cause many people to question it.

      They are definitely baby blue, but the game still works. :-)

      They are in fact, "Not quite White Knights." To me (and some colorblind cube proofers I showed them to during the color selection process) they look light gray which was my intent, but many people see them as light blue. They should be different from all other cubes for everyone.

      I got my game last week and going over the components I've noticed that my 15 White "Knight" cubes are actually light blue. Just wondering if anyone else got the wrong color cubes?

      Game looks lovely CW! Hoping to play tomorrow night. I'd better refresh on the rules during the afternoon tomorrow. :-)

      Congratulations once again!

      I talked of the game a week ago on Tric Trac the biggest French site about boardgames.
      I hope it helped.

    19. CW Karstens Creator on

      Thanks all for the great support! The demos at Gen Con are going great and players have come back later to say how great the play mechanics and art are.

      This is so close, I have been sharing it around to help with that final push, can't wait to get my copy!

    21. Mark DiBlasi

      Suggestion: The Purple Pawn ( has a weekly list of gaming-associated Kickstarter projects, make sure you are on that! Also, the podcast The State Of Games (done by is a huge KS proponent!

    25. Alan Gerding

      CW, it was great meeting you at Origins. I want this game funded!

    26. CW Karstens Creator on

      I apologize for the late response. Yes, I will try and have it done tomorrow at some point. I just got home from Origins and need some sleep before a hard day of work tomorrow. :-)

      Are you going top put a link to the Kickstarter page on the news forum for the game on BGG? Might drive more people here.
