Great job everyone! Dragon Valley has raised the funds for a full print run all due to your support.
While Amazon is working to transfer the funds, Karim and I are completing the final touches to the rulebook and final print files. In order to complete the rulebook, I will be sending name confirmation requests to backers that selected Nobility, Royalty or Registered Royalty funding levels. Please respond promptly to avoid printing delays. :-)
As for the other info I will need like t-shirt sizes and address for shipping your rewards, I will send requests as needed.
I will be posting the schedule once the funds are received so you all can see the plan and progress against that plan for when you will receive your copy.
I am excited to get Dragon Valley out to you as fast as I can. Please note that manufacturing and shipping will take approximately 90 days by themselves after proof approval. So for those waiting by your mailbox, go play some games in the meantime! :-)

Gen Con Report
What a week! Heading out to Gen Con Indianapolis, I was extremely excited. When setting up the project, my original goal was to be at 70% as I left for this gaming convention. Leaving out the door early on August 3, the project was at 90% and the rate of funding was increasing in pace.
On Thursday, I spent the open Exhibit Hall time in The Game Crafter (TGC) booth as that day's featured designer. Beyond showing my Print on Demand titles, I also explained the evolution of Dragon Valley from a TGC prototype to a Kickstarter project. In the evening, I provided demos of Dragon Valley in the Board Game Library/Pick-Up room.
Friday morning I attended the Kickstarter panel discussion and was able to meet many Kickstarter project creators as well as many who are interested in starting projects of their own. It was a great experience to meet the community face to face. In the evening, I provided demos of Dragon Valley in the Board Game Library/Pick-Up room. (Surprised yet?)
Saturday morning I spent time in the Exhibit Hall to check out all the cool games and paraphernalia. I also did a few Dragon Valley demos in the Open Gaming area, followed by, you guessed it, demos of Dragon Valley in the Board Game Library/Pick-Up room.
Sunday was spent making final rounds with other publishers, distributors and two overview demos. I then headed back on Monday morning via a 14 hour drive to Dallas. I am safely home and getting ready for real life to pick back up.
Great Job, everyone on making this happen!
