Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get the expansion in other languages, like German and Chinese, through this campaign? If not, will it be available separately after the campaign?
This campaign is only for the English-language version of the game and expansion.
I'm hoping to work with my partners to put The Networks: Executives in as many languages as I can. I can't announce anything official, so I'll just say it's highly probably that the expansion will be available in German and Chinese, among other languages.Last updated:
Unfortunately, that's just the nature of manufacturing. This is my fifth Kickstarter project, and I've learned that it's always best to be pessimistic when estimating delivery dates. Delays happen along the supply chain for one reason or another, so it's best to account for that in my estimation.
It's possible that we may deliver before July 2018, but for now, I will be pessimistic and give you a conservative date. I've found that is safest!Last updated:
Can I get the base game in this campaign? Can I get the stretch goals from the original campaign too?
Yes and yes! You can get the base game by backing at the "Executive Vice President" level and up.
The stretch goals of the original Kickstarter campaign make up the "On the Air" expansion, which you can get at the "Executive with Bonuses" and "Executive Vice President with Bonuses" pledge levels.Last updated:
I hear the original printing of On the Air had issues. Are they solved in this new printing? If I already own a copy of On the Air, should I buy another?
The newest OTA print runs fix minor issues (back of cards being the incorrect shade, no timing icons on Network Cards), but if you have a copy already, I'd say you don't need to pick up another, unless you're a perfectionist.Last updated:
Yes, the retailer pledge level is $2. If you back at that level, you'll have the opportunity to buy the base game and/or expansion by the case as an add-on after the campaign is over. I won't charge your card until just before the games ship, so you won't have to tie up your capital for several months.
Note that if you're an American, Canadian, or European retailer, the base game and expansion are in distribution, so you will support me just as much if you wait to buy the game from your preferred distributor instead! This pledge level is really for stores that have a harder time working with distributors.Last updated:
If the new deck of Shows in the expansion replaces the deck of Shows in the base game, won't that decrease replayability?
No, I don't think it will. I've designed the whole Executives expansion to exponentially increase the game's replayability!
But the replayability isn't coming from the Show Deck, it's coming in how you have to approach the game to win it. Each Executive forces you to play the game differently. Add in the Season 0 cards and the Mogul cards, and you have a game that is *very* replayable.
If you really want to mix all the cards together, you can always swap Shows in and out! As long as you can deal out the minimum number of cards per season, and have no more than 4 of each Genre in the Season 2-3 and Season 4-5 decks (and no more than 2 of each Genre in the Season 1 deck), you can mix the shows together.Last updated:
Doesn't matter! There are no cards in the expansion that you'll need to shuffle in. The new Show deck replaces the old deck of shows, and while there's a whole bunch of new stuff (Executives and Mogul Cards), there are no new Ads, Stars, or Network Cards. All the replayability in the expansion comes from the new Executives; they're really cool!Last updated:
