Half way!


Today is officially the halfway point for the Legacy: Gears of Time Kickstarter campaign. Thank you so much for your support so far, it's been amazing!

Artist Print Update

As promised, here's an update on the artist prints. The artist have chosen the following 4 prints to be reproduced and given as backer rewards. The prints will be professionally printed on heavy paper, 11"x17", hand signed and numbered by the artists.

Genetics - Steve Maggart

Currency - Steve Maggart

Railroads - Shamas Demoret

Space Flight - Shamas Demoret

Since we reached the second stretch goal, all 4 prints will be included with any reward level that previously included the prints!

Playtesting Day This Thursday!

For all of you who are in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, this Thursday is an open playtesting day for Legacy: Gears of Time. It will be at Source Comics and Games in Roseville, MN. We'll be starting at 6pm and going till they kick us out! Send me a message to rsvp, please include your email address so I can send out a reminder later this week.

Game Components Update

The original component list was created to help minimize costs for a very small print run. Since the project is going so well, we've decided to upgrade many of the components, while still maintaining the same price for you. Economies of scale are great! Although everything isn't quite finalized, there will be a full fold-out game board, which will include areas specifically for each of the game components (draw and discard piles, player order, round and turn markers, scoring track). This will also allow the full panorama of the timeline to remain unbroken; if you've seen the preliminary sketches, you can be certain it will look fantastic!

'Build a Character' Reward Levels Sold Out

All of the build a character reward levels are now sold out! I've been working with each of the backers and the characters are turning out really diverse and fun. The Character card templates are done, but the art is still in progress. I'll send an update showing the character cards as they are completed!

Thank You

Thank you again for your support; this wouldn't be happening if it weren't for you!! Please continue to share the link with your friends, and giving out 'thumbs up' on board game geek (please check out the Designer Diary there for more info on what went in to making Legacy)! Let's get to the hotness.

There are quite a few more plans in the works, so look for a couple new stretch goals and rewards really soon!

      10K down, about 900 to go for 200% funding!
