Hey there, Racers!
We last wrote to you in April of 2013, and asked everyone to get the word out about Race to Adventure!, to talk about playing the game, and to help it have the post-Kickstarter life it needed to close the $19,000 gap to break even.
So where are we at now? Well, we haven't eliminated that gap yet. This project is still in the red. But that "gap" from 10 months ago is now less than $6,000. Big progress! And not too shabby for our company's first boardgame outing.
As of last quarter, we're at nearly 1,900 games sold (including those sold in this Kickstarter), and the game is available and getting played across the world thanks to our contacts in distribution (and thanks to you).
This past Tuesday we've launched our second Spirit of the Century themed game, a crazy zeppelin-exploding deckbuilder from Eric B. Vogel called Zeppelin Attack! We see it as something of a companion-piece to Race to Adventure!; Race features a crazy globe-spanning adventure for the heroes of the Spirit of the Century universe, while Zeppelin Attack! amasses the villainous masterminds of the setting as they duke it out to be the one who gets to conquer the world. Come on by and check it out!
We hope the past year has given you plenty of chances to play Race to Adventure!, and we'd love to hear how the game has been working out for you. Drop us some links to your online reviews of the game, too, if you've got 'em.
And thank you again for helping this game take flight! We learned so much from this campaign, and from you, and from the craaazy process of making the game, and we've been applying it to everything we've worked on since. That experience has been worth way more than any "gap", and we owe it all to you.
Fly easy, guys! We'll see you around the world.
