Kickstarter Deluxe EXCLUSIVES: 8-player pack and 6 new Action Cards (unlockable via Social Media Achievements)

Posted by Gap Closer Games (Creator)

Kickstarter Deluxe Exclusives are finally here!

You spoke. We answered. Kickstarter Deluxe Exclusives are finally here! Many of our backers have been patiently waiting to see what we had in store for the Deluxe Edition. Now the wait is over. Here’s what we have in store for you!

Although Rival Restaurants can currently be enjoyed by up to 6 players, we are now expanding it to 8 players! Now all your friends and family can battle it out in the fight for gastronomical glory! The Deluxe Edition will come with 2 extra sets of everything (movement wheels, point sliders, and upgrades).

The 8-player pack is unique to the Deluxe Edition; the Retail Edition can still be enjoyed by up to 6 players.

On top of that--and this is something we’re really excited to share--we are adding 6 brand-new, Kickstarter-Exclusive Action Cards! That's right! You won't be able to find these cards anywhere besides here on Kickstarter! These Action Cards are as powerful as they are beautiful, and each of them is marked with “KSE” (Kickstarter-Exclusive) in the bottom right corner, setting them apart for all eternity.

But we're going to need some help to get these KSE Action Cards unlocked, and the people we're counting on are backers like you! We've created 6 Social Media Achievements that we'd like to accomplish over the remaining days of the campaign. Let's spread the word about Rival Restaurants and get these Action Cards unlocked and the game fully stretched!

Social Media Achievements (to unlock KSE Action Cards)

All things aside, it’s been an incredible 2 weeks since we launched on Kickstarter. Our community has grown to over 1,000 and the excitement for everyone to try Rival Restaurants is very real! We are so happy that we’re able to add these Kickstarter-Exclusives for you and we hope you’re as excited about them as we are.

And just like in the real world of restaurants, the only way we can grow is by word of mouth, so please tell your friends and family to check us out! Thanks everyone!

Always cooking,

- Team Gap Closer

      @PK Levine: Hi PK, the 6 new action cards are for the Deluxe Edition only. The Kickstarter Exclusive (KSE) components are what differentiate the Retail Edition and the Deluxe Edition. I hope that clarifies things and thank you for your question.

    2. PK Levine

      Wait, I'm unclear about something -- are the new action cards Deluxe-only, or are they KSEs for the normal game as well?

      Double check them clips, if they are eh ones with the mold line down the centre they will and do scratch cards. Have two games have we threw them out for as they just tear and leave deep gouges.

      Hi Marina, we're really excited about this update as well! And thanks for getting on those social goals so quickly!

      As for your question, the # of ingredients are perfectly fine because it's more about the distribution of ingredients in the recipes than anything else. Great question though! I can tell you play a lot of games... :)

      OMG YES!!!!! This is awesome!! Gonna get to work on those social goals right away =D
      Just wondering one thing. Since the players can now be 8 but the amount of ingredients are remaining the same, will it feel like we're short on getting the stuff we need to complete recipes?
