Sorry, at this time there is no plans for any PNP version of the game.Last updated:
This game was originally conceived with poker chips to represent Hit Point and Armor Points. Part of the theme of this game is "gambling with your life" That was soon abandoned for something more partial and much smaller. It has a crap table type feel with sliding the chips, in our case cubes on and off the field.
Having colors to represent denominations brings a level of confusion because you are already working with 3 colors. To quickly see the numbers you are working with...which is important. It's simpler just having the straight amount. I hope that makes sense.
That being said, some who play the game prefer dice drafting, and that's great. Do whatever works for you!
The cubes add very little to the overall manufacturing costs, take up little space and add minimal weight to each unit. Don't let the number 115 make it feel like a lot. They fit in a ziplock bag 2/3rds the size of a story card.Last updated:
The current plan is to have 300gms. Though I would love to go to a 320 or 350, the already large card size makes the game heavy and I have decided at this time to keep it at 300 so that the box and delivery cost don't become unrealistic for this price point.
In the future I would love to do a deluxe version, but at this point it isn't in the cards....see what I did there?Last updated:
The current plan is to make additional copies available in Backerkit as upgrades after the campaign ends. Of course I will let you know if that changes.
The estimated shipping cost of multiple copies will be available at that time as well.Last updated:
Not at this time. My only focus is the six chapters that will be in this edition of the game.
I am not shutting the door additional content, but I can't make any decisions regarding that until after this game is produced and fulfilled.Last updated:
At this time there are no plans for a Retailers Tier.Last updated:
At this time there are no plans to have the game translated, BUT that doesn't mean it won't be! I just need to get this game done and off. Then I will consider what comes next!Last updated:
The only way to get Spire’s End is through this campaign OR through the Spire’s End website IF i am able to manufacture additional copies. The game will not be sold through any other online or brick and mortar retailers.Last updated:
The short answer is no, but let me give you some insight on where I am coming from here.
I realize that the box is a concern for people wanting sleeves. Any changes to the box will increase costs (which in the case would be an additional half-inch). Dividers and additional materials inside the box will increase costs. That leads to increased shipping costs.
The industry rule of thumb is that about 20% of the audience will want sleeves.
So, what do I do about this, considering I have a low price point and detailed specs to get this game made without causing a ripple effect? We realized that if you were to remove the cubes and dice which will be lying on top you could fit the story cards in the box. Due to the limited size of the audience wanting the box to house the cards, this feels like a realistic compromise. Not everyone is going to be happy with this choice, but I need to do what’s best for the entire audience and not just one section of it.
I reached out for custom sleeves due to the volume of requests. This is a bonus add on that I am happy to provide as an option. My stance is that it should be treated as such.Last updated:
Yes, nothing will be printed on the sleeves.Last updated:
No, there will not be an add-on for another box size.Last updated:
