Portable Ladder; More Art Prints + Poll #2!
Hello, you beautiful backers. Today marks 3 weeks into the campaign; and there are over 4000 of you now! Amazing. 9 days left!
We passed $125k last night, which means the game box will have a lovely, linen finish.
With this stretch goal we've now upgraded all of the game's components to the premium quality we were hoping for – from 310 gsm card stock, to custom meeples, to plastic insert. Our vision for Karmaka is coming true, thanks to all of you.
That said, one suggestion came up in the project's comments that we really liked: a 2-card Karmic Ladder. This would allow people to fit a fully playable version of Karmaka in their card box for easy transport to game nights, on trips, etc. Mind you, we have no intention of scrapping the full 6" x 8" board version of the Ladder; we just thought it'd be great to add these 2 cards as a bonus. Our only concern was that it might be too small to actually use, so I did a scale mockup in Photoshop. (Did you know photoshop has a 3D mode? Now you do. ;-)
The verdict? It'd work fine for a 2-player game. Things would get cramped in 4-player games, but still doable with some care and a little "extrapolation" of the levels near the top. We imagine sleeving the two cards and applying a little black electrical tape on the underside to hold it together nicely on the table while still allowing you to easily fold and place it in a card box.
All that to say, we're going for it! If the campaign hits $140k, we'll add in these 2 extra cards.
Two items in art-print land:
2) The last art poll proved to be really fun. Some great cards weren't included in the poll though, and a few favourites needed a "rematch". So we're doing another.
Once again, this is to pick two more cards that will be polished up by Marco and made into art prints available for purchase on Society6. (Note: Unlike last time, we aren't tying this to a stretch goal. We'll just do it.) So hit the poll and vote for your favs! We'll close it down and present the results in a few days...
