Have a question?
@ Erkki Keränen - no you haven't. The games are almost ready to ship from China, so I expect to open it very soon.
Did I miss the pledge manager?
@Elzra Great news. I hope they can stay on schedule.
We can start arranging the shipment as of the 23rd of this month.
@ David W. Bauer @ Einar Wulfsberg - I have written to the factory to ask when they re-open after the CNY, which is on the 15th of February. The entire CNY period is around two weeks (one week before the new year and one week afterwards).
So with shipping and customs I would guess fulfillment is likely in April now.
@David Probably until early March.
When does CNY end?
Received the first off the line samples of the base Conquest game today and everything looks good. Mass production of all copies is complete. A shipment could not be booked before Chinese New Year, so the games will move as soon as the factory re-opens.
@ Stuart Lamb - yes, this will be possible.
Will we be able to add playmats in the pledge manager? I ordered the game without a playmat and I'm thinking about upgrading, if possible.
Awesome news. Can't wait to get this game.
It's official: Catacombs Conquest has been released to the printer. Mass production has started.
@ Einar Wulfsberg - no
Is the playmat double sided?
@Elzra I am a huge dummy. I recently ordered C&C and I missed the updated deck thinking (for whatever reason) that it was out of print. Just ordered, thanks!
@ Jorge Alvarez - no, as they are readily available right here: https://shop.elzra.com/products/updated-card-deck-catacombs-third-edition. The pledge manager for this campaign focuses on Conquest, nothing else.
Will there be a chance to get the upgrade deck for 3rd ed. on this pledge manage? (I wasn't able to get on C&C KS, got it from your store, so didn't find out until too late).
Pledge manager ready to launch soon.
Didn’t realize I was on the conquest one, this app is hard for me to use :/
I got 3 boxes of my pledge
Haven’t opened up the actual games to make sure all the prices are there but I do notice that:
While I purchased for 3 of everything (including each resurrection pack) but Catacombs 3E And Cavern of Soloth (got two of those)
I only got 1 teleport card for Roosan, is there a way to get at least 2 more because in the resurrection packs I should have a total of 3 chickens and only have one teleport.
Second, I didn’t receive the upgrade deck for the original Catacombs, is that coming later? When should I look forward to my Wyverns games as I purchased 3 and haven’t gotten any tracking for them yet?
@ Ethan Doherty - they add more cards to the base decks.
Is there any info on how the add ons play? Maybe I missed it in an update or comment
Would be great if we can add Resurrection packs in the pledge manager. =)
But yes, they are ;) Got it too
er, sorry, wrong Catacombs KS :D
Just got a shipping notices from BNW DISTRIBUTION in Germany. Is that you guys?
@ Simon Taylor - no, just the items that relate to the Conquest title specifically. The Resurrection Packs are available on our online store (shop.elzra.com).
Just wondering, will other catacombs products be available in the PM? In particular the resurrection packs?
@ Elzra Games - I just received notification from Canada Post, so my questions have been answered. Thanks!
@ Checksam - the Pledge Manager has not opened yet. You will receive a link to it in an email and you will be taken to the Catacombs Conquest project's page on the Pledge Manager's site.
Hi! This is my first Kickstarter Project that I have pledged. I would like to order Add-on cardset too. But I don't understand the Pledge manager. How do I use pledge manager and where I can find it?
@Elzra Games - If my card was charged for the MASSIVE BUNDLE preorder on 8/23, does that mean it has shipped? Which carrier to USA? Tracking number? Thanks!
@ Manus - thank you for the feedback about the Monster Pit manual.
Read the rules for monster pit. Incredibly clear, almost too clear in some places! For example, I'm not sure if it's necessary to use a whole page (page 7) to determine who is the monster player at the beginning. I feel the whole page could be condensed to 'randomly select s player to be the Monster Controller'. This could fit in at the end of page 6, possibly in place of page 6's last paragraph (again, not sure if this is needed).
There doesn't seem to be any explanation as to what the symbols on the backs of the cards are. One would presume that the skulls publicise to other player how powerful your cards are, but a sentence would be nice.
Would love to hear your thoughts on where the strategy lies in the game - on the face of it, it seems fun but similarly light to Conquest.
@ Gordon Chia - Unfortunately, we cannot double side the reference card as we want all of the cards in the deck to use the same card backs.
Nice seeing the reference card. If it is a regular card size it does look a big congested tho. Maybe turn sequence on one side while shot types on the other side of the card?
@ Alex DeRosa - yes, limited copies of Catacombs and the new Wyverns expansion at the IGA (IndieGameAlliance) booth. Catacombs & Castles will *not* be for sale as our valued backers must get their copies first.
Hey @Elzra Games will you be selling anything at Gen Con? if so for how much? I have a friend going and he asked me to put in requests for him to buy stuff in the next couple days, thanks!
Excellent! Wish I could be there
We are confirmed exhibiting at SHUX 2017 - https://www.shutupandsitdown.com/shux2017/
@ Brandyn Treat - after we have fulfilled the Castles backers, so sometime later this month. We can charge your card now, if you like. Just contact us at email@example.com.
@ John - our project uses a Pledge Manager - addresses will be requested when we open it.
@john we'll be asked in the pledge manager.
Hi how can I change my address, or have we even been asked yet?
Do we have an ETA of when the pre-order bundles will ship? Curious for impatient and financial reasons, since it will charge when it ships. Thanks for all your work, I'm very excited to be immersed in the Catacombs world!
@Lance as far as I know it's an additional 42 card set on top of the 56 already in the base game.
what is this "beyond the event horizon addon" you are speaking of? :)
Also after trying Castles, I would say I prefer the wall system in 3e over the clip version in Castles. Would you consider having the interlocking version of 3e being used in Conquest?
