Half a million! What! I mean! Whaaaat!

We've hit half a million bucks! That's nuts! And you know what that means...

Puddin' time.
Puddin' time.

Actually... do you know what it means? Because we don't. We had no notion that we'd hit that mark. It's, ummm. It's big. That is a thing that it is.

It does seem like it's time to flick on the party lights and celebrate. You've busted every goal, and then some; we're already at four audio tracks from Plate Mail Games and well on our way to the fifth.

So let's celebrate! What are you most excited about? What are you looking forward to? Have you played yet, and if so, what did you think? Let us know in the comments so we can do a little dance with you about all that. 

This also feels like a good time to roll out some of the comedic "secret rewards" we've had planned for y'all.

First up, we're going to add another card to the freebies pack. This will be a new Foe card for use in the Side Jobs deck — the Evil Hat. When you defeat it, Harry gets to draw a card. Because Harry don't do no hats, that's why.

Second, we're going to include a bonus audio track for you, straight from Dr. Eric "Foo Dog Funk" Vogel, your game designer. Because enough of you... okay, at least one of you... demanded a funk album, and well, this is as good as that gets from us. Have a listen to the Foo Dog Funk now! (Assuming the Kickstarter audio-playin' widget below works for you.)

(We are so sorry. So, so very sorry. But we couldn't stop laughing.)

Seriously though, we're just beside ourselves with how great this campaign has been, and how great you all have been through it all. As we head on towards the final 24 hours of the campaign (but the first 24 hours of a much longer road of getting this game into your hands) we're thrilled to have you all as part of our team for making more tabletop Dresden Files gaming a reality. 

Thank you, again, and always! 

And please, enjoy your foo dog funk responsibly.

      So, so glad you're doing so well, and that, well, you know, the Black Court freaks haven't eaten your face and all, but I'm not listening to whatever that thing was. Nope, not doing it.

      I am most looking forward to Ra- Sun god for hire. As a long time player of RPGs I like seeing new characters added to settings that are not a part of the printed books.

      um... I am not sure what happened I hit play on the Foo Dog Funk and well it's night time and I have no idea where my day went to... Can we get someone to vet that music for black magic? :)

      I played the Foo Dog Funk on my computer's speakers, and my basset hound in the other room heard it, and is barking loudly over it. Thank you for the laughter!!

      Yes! Foo Dog Funk is great! I'm gonna have to make this into a ringtone.

      Knew I wanted it the moment I saw it. I have been so busy following the green line I have not yet played the game.Once the kickstarter is over then I will figure out the game! Congratulations!

      I love the way this game has so much theme and everything is referenced back to the books, you can tell that you are fans of the books, even this Joke card links back to Harry and his dislike for wearing hats... Brilliant

      two hundred and forty dollars worth of pudding.

      glad to know what all that sweet kickstarter revenue is really going towards.

      What an absolutely filthy bass line. I think someone called the cops because of the absolute lewdness of such a song.
      I give it two muddy paws up.

      I wholeheartedly approve of the Evil Hat foe card.

      So excited to get this game! Wahooo!My only request for an additional "expansion" would be modified instructions to add more players. (You already have the character cards for it... just assuming it might require adjusting fate points and/or adding more book cards on the table?)

      Empty Night, what did we do to deserve that! :P

      Oh I think you fellas can afford much more than 240 dollars worth of pudding at this point. I'm thinking 270, maybe even 275 dollars of sweet sweet pudding. Cook and chill, fellas. Cook and then chill...

      I'm just very very excited that my Dresden obsession with my favorite gaming mechanic is being made to the fullest capacity :-) And the song is fun :-D

      The audio tracks haven't even been started to be made yet. Eric just happened to create the "joke" bonus track early. :)

      Yay team Dresden!!! Way to go!!
      Question: how do we get access to and play these audio tracks?
