The Final Week and a Huge New Milestone!
Two giant milestones today - 1500 backers and $40,000 Pledged. Wowzers!
I've also caught up reaching out to everyone. Thank you so much for the awesome feedback, suggestions, and support.
Pacificon & Team Play
Absolutely thrilled to be able to meet a few of you at Pacificon. Such a treat to play with backers. We also used the event to test Team Play. There is still work to do, but it gave us the confidence to open it up as a Stretch Goal (see below).
Ant Labs Games gave a wonderful review of Herbaceous last week. Check it out!
New Stretch Goals
As mentioned in our second update, we've been cautions to open new Stretch Goals beyond the 5 we planned and have met. Given the success we've had testing Team Play, the big value it adds to family play and expert play, and the limited schedule impact, we've now added it to the campaign. In addition, after receiving good feedback on the digital Greeting/Gift Card idea, we decided to add that as a goal to make it for everyone. We'll do two versions: one for anyone, and one for mom.
Keith and I have continued to play and play and play the Solo Variant. I think we logged over 40 games between the two of us this weekend. The rules are the same, but we've refined the score table. Update here.
The Final Week!
We are now in the final week of the campaign. Amazing. The campaign continues to get great promotion: We were the top game in the BGG Crowdfunding Roundup and received mention in Jamey's Blog (it was about localization, but still has a huge audience). Like always, anything you can do to continue to spread the word is appreciated!
