Have a question?
@Blair, welcome aboard matey
Just finished my order. Sorry for the delay. Looking forward to the game.
@Gambit - lol thanks :-)
Yes, you're right! With the game you get the minis, but you can buy another set if you want to. Also its and addon for backers updating that want the new minis.
¡Si, tienes razón! Con el juego vienen las minis, pero puedes comprar otro juego de miniaturas si quieres. También es un add-on para mecenas que actualizan y quieren disponer de las nuevas minis
So little late but the minis do come with game correct? The box of minis add on is for if you want doubles?
Veo que esta habiendo mucho testeo y eso es bueno. Os pido especial atención en la habilidades ganadas acumuladas que hacían que los personajes estuviesen totalmente descompensados y "chetados" a partir de la aventura 5 o 6. Una solución seria hacer upgrades de habilidades mejorándolas o coger una con prerrequisito de otra ganando la mejor y perdiendo la anterior (ni siquiera tiene que ser mejor si no más molona).
Tengo una hija del capitán que es imposible de matar tras haber acabado la campaña y aun no ha empezado el caldero del diablo..
I still have to finish my order, my money is a little late but should be finished this week. So sorry for the delay.
@Alex Update 29 says to finish your pledge manager by the end of July and they’ll email all those who haven’t done so. But in Update 30 in the comments section they say it will remain open much longer. The July deadline was to get an estimate on production numbers
When does the pm close?
Yep. There’s nothing else you need to do but wait in agony
This might sound stupid but once it says PAID and I get an email that's me done isn't it?
Cool! Thanks. I’m excited for all the production updates!
@Gambit.rogue: Yes, the metal coins will also have a diameter of 30mm. And yes, the coin’s metal will also receive an “aged” treatment.
Sí, las monedas metálicas también tendrán un diámetro de 30mm. Y sí, el metal de las monedas también recibirán un tratamiento de “envejecimiento”.
Will the metal coins have similar or larger size? Will they be ‘aged’? (Is that a thing for metal?)
AWESOME!! You made the gold coins look just right. Thank you! Can't wait until it's in my hot little grubby pirate hands.
@Gambit.Rogue - that's exactly what I was after! Thanks very much :-)
@Paddy If you do not have the original Skull Tales, when you get to the Pledge Manager choose one of everything, Except for Witch & Freedman, Extra 50+ miniature set, 4 Sea Miniatures. You also do not need the twins if you have an Early Bird pledge, otherwise get those.
Only one set of dice (you will only ever roll a max of 5 dice at any time) unless you want enough dice for everyone. Additionally their are some customizable trays that will help for storing tokens and bits for any game including this one, the creators said you'll need a minimum of two for this game but add more if you think you could use them
Looking to get my pledge sorted - what do I need to back to make sure I have everything (as good as it can be) - eg how many dice etc?
Alguna actualización en el horizonte marineros?
Hi! A lot of the backers fulfilled their Pledge Manager yet. But it have no impact on our production schedule, it stills at a good pace. We have enough data to stimate quantities of add-on to make. Sooner the 100% PM is closed, the better.
Thanks for your support!
¡Hola! Gran cantidad de Pledge Manager de mecenas ya cerrados. Pero no tiene impacto en nuestra agenda de producción, que sigue a buen ritmo. Ya tenemos suficientes datos para estimar las cantidades de add-on a fabricar, aunque cuanto antes esté el 100% del PM completo, mejor.
¡Gracias por tu apoyo!
Curiosity, are there many backers missing to close the PM?
Curiosidad, ¿faltan muchos backers por cerrar el PM?
@Devin: As @Kehlenschnitt kindly mentioned, get in touch with us by private message or email and we'll help you change your address after closing your pledge in the pledge manager.
@Devin: If you already finished the PM, you can't do it yourself. You should contact @Eclipse Editorial, they can change it for you or unlock your pledge.
How can I change my address
@LittleLionMan: Yes, I was talking about the 3D rats add-on for the game "Ratland" that is offered in the PM. Mmmhhh, but you gave me an idea, I could use these tiny 3D rats also in Skull Tales and have them scuttle around the ship during the Voyage phase or for the dungeon tiles during the Adventure phase (just for immersion) in case you're wondering ;-)
Ah you are talking about Ratlands game?? I thought it was an addon for skull tales ^^
3D rats??? What i missed?
@RTaylor: Glad I could help you in this regard. Just make sure, to write them an e-mail if you want the 3D rats, since these were an add-on ($19) and aren't available in the PM. They have to set this up manually (and not in the Kick&Go PM). I would recommend going for the 3D rats, which look great on the board and add to the immersion. Although they tend to clutter up the board space (which isn't a big problem), I prefer using them, instead of the cardboard tokens, since it really gives you the feeling of controlling a vast horde of rats attacking your fellow players ;-)
@kehlenschnitt thanks, after seeing it in the the pm I took the chance and added it. Wasn't sure if it came with the extra rats but looked fun. Now I'm even more excited about it as well
Tried again this morning before class and it went through. Hope it worked
A while ago (around 10.00 am in Spain) I was able to complete my PM
Not working still for PM. I’ll just wait for an email saying it’s working again.
@Gambit.Rogue: Yeah, the creators really have gone the extra mile during and after the campaign. Excellent customer service and interaction with backers. I will support them on all upcoming projects. If Skull Tales gets delivered early, that would be the icing on the cake. Can't wait to set sail and start plundering :-)
@Kehlenschnitt, I have been impressed w/ their customer service as well. I hope they can deliver the game earlier than projected? ;P
++++++RATLAND GAME IN PM++++++++
Anyone who is still unsure about getting this game or not, I would say GO FOR IT !
Received it last week and played it since then every evening (usually 3 or 4 games in a row).
- Can be played by 2-6 players (or up to 12 if you own two sets)
- three different game (difficulty) modes (that I would classify as easy/advanced/expert)
- super funny game, with great artwork and quality components
- has a lot of replayability and offers a great choice of tactical decisions
- can't get enough of it and will play another game tonight ;-)
I've messaged @Eclipse Editorial approx. 3 weeks ago and received an answer the same day (from @Sergio Rodriguez Yanes). He offered me the option to receive this game earlier, instead of waiting for it to arrive with my Skull Tales pledge. The extra shipping was $9 for Germany, which was fine for me. He walked me through the whole process step by step and then sent me a Paypal link to pay for Ratland + 3D Rats add-on + Shipping cost. After payment was done and received, he once again wrote me a message with the tracking number. This was an excellent customer service experience, thanks to @Sergio Rodriguez Yanes. So thank you again.
I received the game last week and it has hit my gaming table every evening since then. The first game I played, was a two-player game with only the core rules, directly followed by a rematch with the "advanced" rules, where every player plays a specific rat clan (that offers extra rules/a bonus to the player). This adds a lot of depth and even more tactical choices to the game. The following days I played 3-player games, which was a completely different experience than playing a two-player game. You have to devise different strategies, depending on which clan you play and which clan the other players have. So every game brings a new tactical challenge with it. There is also a third option to play the game (aggressive mode), that I haven't tried yet, but it makes the game even harder (and most likely even funnier). The rules/mechanics are easy to learn, but offer a great choice of different playstyles and tactics. It is a fast game (a session takes about 30 min. with 3 players, might take a bit longer with more players). Don't get fooled by the cute look of the game, there are some vicious rats inside, that only wait to attack a "fellow" player ;-)
That said, I highly recommend this game, get it while you have the chance, you won't regret it. It also helps to pass the time, while waiting for Skull Tales to arrive :-)
We've experienced some technical difficulties with the pledge manager's servers during the weekend and this morning. Please try again this afternoon, and if you are still having issues, contact us at games@EclipseEditorial.com.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the inconvenience.
Hemso tenido a lo largo del fin de semana y esta mañana en parte, problemas con los servidores del pledge manager. Probad esta tarde y si seguís teniendo problemas, por favor, escribid a email@example.com
Gracias por adelantado y disculpad las molestias.
@Johnathan: Send us an email so we can check what is the problem with your pledge manager and why it isn't allowing you to finalize your pledge.
Mándanos un email para que podamos comprobar cuál puede ser el problema con el pledge manager y por qué no te está dejando finalizar tu aportación.
It’s not letting me finish. It’s telling me to finish language and shipping info before continuing but it’s already all done.
Pledge manager is up and running again!
El pledga manager vuelve a estar operativo
Thanks for the warning!
We have contact yet with Kick & go to fix it!
¡Gracias por el aviso!
Hemos contactado ya con Kick & go para solucionarlo.
I also cannot access the pledge manager. The error seems to be a connection problem with the site ... please fix it!
Hi I’m trying to complete my pledge manager today but the website isn’t loading in English and the link I have doesn’t work. Please can someone send me a new link please. Many thanks :)
Will there be another juegorrinos playthrough of the game (English)?
@Keola Dacalio: Yes, we did send pledge manager invitations for all those of you that went for the $2 plege. Feel free to send us an email so that we can resend you the link to access Kick&Go.
Sí, mandamos invitaciones al pledge manager a los mecenas que aportaron $2 durante la campaña. Mándanos un email y te reenviaremos el enlace de acceso a Kick&Go.
I haven't been able to locate the pledge manager. Was this open to $2 pledgers?
Many of you have asked for an alternative payment method to PayPal for different reasons. After more than two weeks negotiating with our bank, we are glad to announce that we finally have a new alternative payment system ready for you. Once the pledge manager requests that you confirm your shipping address and the language you want for your copy of the game, you will have to fill in your info and click “Save your shipping information”. At this point of the process, the pledge manager will give you the option to either process your payment via PayPal or to use your credit/debit card. Thank you very much for your patience!
Muchos de vosotros nos habéis pedido una pasarela de pago alternativa a Paypal por diversos motivos. Después de estar más de dos semanas negociando con nuestro banco por fin podemos anunciar que ponemos a vuestra disposición esa pasarela de pago alternativa a paypal. Cuando en el pledge manager te pidan confirmar la dirección de envío y el lenguaje en el que quieres tu juego, rellenas tus datos y le das a “Guardar tu información de envío”. En ese momento el pledge manager te dará la opción de pagar a través de Paypal o través de tarjeta de débito / crédito. Gracias a todos por vuestra paciencia.
Para mecenas de España, el sistema de pago y el banco nos obliga a procesarlo en EUROS, por lo que se convertirá en tiempo real el cambio de divisa.
Hi @Annan Birkett
We sent you an email.
Hola @Annan Birkett
Te hemos mandado un mail.
@Calvin:: As explained in the shipping section of the campaign, the initial shipping costs detailed in KS were an estimation according to the size and weight of the base game. During the campaign a really huge amount of content has been unlocked, including a full large box expansion and lots of new goodies for the base game. Both game boxes are now over 4Kg + extras + add-ons, so that’s what has caused the shipping costs to increase.
But feel free to send us an email or private message if you have doubts about your shipping costs so we can check your case.
Tal como se explica en la sección de envío de la campaña, los gastos de envío detallados en KS son una estimación en base al tamaño y peso del juego base. Durante la campaña se han desbloqueado una enorme cantidad de nuevos componentes, incluida una expansión en caja grande y muchas cositas para el juego base. Ambas cajas están en este momento sobre los 4Kg + extras + add-ons y eso es lo que ha causado la subida en los costes de envío. No dejéis de escribirnos por email o mensaje privado para que podamos revisarlo si tenéis dudas con los gastos de envío.
@Calvin, I contacted them too (I ordered everything) and I paid $39 shipping. Hard to swallow that one
Is the shipping correct? On the Campaign page said $19 to Canada but at the PM they charge $30??
