Hi Investigators! We have some cool stuff to cover today!
LARGER CARD SIZE COMING
When we reach $620,000 the search cards, madness cards, consciousness cards and scenario cards in the game are going to be updated from 41 x 63mm (or 1.6 x 2.5 inches) to 59 x 92mm (2.3 x 3.6 in), allowing for a better representation of the artwork and flavor text. There are over 160 of these cards in the core box, and that number keeps growing as we add more stretch goals! By the way, here are the sizes for our other cards:
Monster card: 70 x 120mm (2.75 x 4.75 in)
Room card: 41 x 63mm (1.6 x 2.5 in)
Spawn card: 41 x 63mm (1.6 x 2.5 in)
CARD HOLDER BOX SIZE
Have you ever played a game where the cards ended up all over the place? We know we have, especially when we’re talking about a game with as many parts to keep track of as Deep Madness. In the core game there are over 200 cards, and that number grows with almost every unlocked stretch goal. To prevent “Cardmageddon”, we designed the card holder box. The box is comprised of two parts: a holder and a cover. In the game, the card holder keeps the deck nice, tidy, and in one place. After the game, the holder folds up to make a perfect container and organizer for all of your cards.
- Blue 46 x 68 x 75mm (1.8 x 2.7 x 3 in), which is suitable for 41 x 63mm (1.6 x 2.5 in) cards. It can hold up to 220 cards without card sleeves. With sleeves it holds about 140 cards.
- Red 64 x 97 x 75mm (2.5 x 3.8 x 3 in), which is suitable for 59 x 92mm (2.3 x 3.6 in) cards. It can hold up to 220 cards without card sleeves. With sleeves it can hold about 140 cards.
There are 46 bases in the core game: 40 black ring bases with slots, and 6 colored ring bases. The black ring bases with slots are for monsters. Excluding the Epic Monsters, all of the monsters in the core game have a 30mm diameter base, allowing the black ring bases to fit snugly around just about any monster which happens to show up in the game. It is very easy to install and remove monster miniatures to and from the ring bases without damaging them. The black ring bases have a slot for wound tokens which make it easy to record monsters’ hit points. No matter how many monster miniatures you will finally end up receiving, in any one game of Deep Madness there are usually only 6 types of monsters in play and only the monsters on the board will need ring bases. You can buy extra ring bases in the optional buys if you so desire.
Right now, in all of the unlocked stretch goals, Atrocity and Immortal have 40mm diameter bases, and each of these miniatures will come with a suitable ring base.
The colored ring bases help players to identify their investigator figure on the board. Since players place any wound tokens received on their Investigator Dashboards, no slot is needed for the investigators.
If you're interested in purchasing additional ring bases or the card holder boxes (or if you haven’t added your Epic Monsters or expansions yet), please just click the "Manage Your Pledge" button on the Deep Madness Kickstarter page, then click “Change Your Pledge”, then add the amount for the items you'd like to get to your total and click “Continue”. We'll sort out what your extra money is going towards after the campaign has closed and we've sent out our Pledge Manager.
