Pre-production update and a gift for you!
Hello everyone, it’s nice to be talking with you again. Hope you are doing great!
Writing this updates always feels to me like taking a walk with a friend, chatting and discussing a common passion.
There is something quite interesting when you finally close a chapter related to the creation of a game. The first is for sure our Kickstarter launch. Within moments you will know how people will react to something you really believe and worked for so long. The very second moment is exactly when you end up sending all the game files to your manufacturer. You feel that you have completed a very important task, and from that point forward, you are helping make it a reality.
Working on the last stages of the game was an incredible journey. We kept tweaking and finding new ways to make the best game experience possible. Time passes by, but you want to keep polishing something that you know you will hand over to someone special.
Today, we are certain that the experience this game gave us at the beginning has become much richer and it is finally ready to be crafted.
I want to sincerely thank you for all your support and patience with us.
That being said, while working on these new choices, we crafted one last item as a token of our appreciation to you all.
As you know by our last update, PledgeWizard is live!
We are actively working with the programming company to reflect your free add-ons as soon as possible. We know you are waiting for them and we appreciate your patience.
Here is what you can expect to be reflected in your cart as soon as we make the update.
- If you got the Early Bird: The Wayfarer character pack
- If you are a previous backer: The Swan decoration booster pack
- If you subscribed to our mailing: The Apricot decoration booster pack
- If you got sleeves in Dead Man’s Doubloons: Tang Garden Sleeves pack
If your answer is yes to one of these, you will get that add-on for free. If you answer is yes in all of them, then you will get them all. We are not closing PledgeWizard anytime soon. If you still have questions regarding this you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
Any update to your order must be done through the original email you received to access your survey in the first place, as we talked in our “How-To” Update.
Pre-production and Rulebook
The game is now in our manufacturer hands. We could have posted a new schedule table, but we prefer to wait for their road map so we can update you accordingly.
We are giving the finishing touches to our expansions rules, but for now here are the main, updated, rules with all changes we applied to the game.
Keith Matejka has received the same file and has also started proofing it. We will update this and the different versions with Keith in the following days.
Ninfea Card and new set collection type
Each card is worth 7 coins at the end of the game, but every time a player decides to take a bonsai, vase or a ninfea decoration card, the value of all these decorations will decrease by one. Potentially, if players place all of the six decorations on the garden board, each bonsai, vase and ninfea will be worth just one coin.
The Herbalist is a limited edition character for Tang Garden that is available in PledgeWizard as an add-on. The box comes with the character card, miniature, a special scenario and 3 herbs tokens in wood.
