Streeeeetch Goalzzzz

Hello everyone!

First off, THANK YOU for helping us get over 90,000!  We couldn't have done it without all of you, so congratulations! There are several things we want to mention in the update. 

1)  We are in range of getting 9 custom Survivor miniatures for the game.  We are lucky to have Ryan Lesser, the Art Director of Harmonix, working on our 3D models. (http://ryanlesser.com). If we reach this goal, the base stands will be different colors to match the Squad Boards, with pegs on them. These stands will allow you to attach 2 miniatures to them so players can have 2 Survivors moving together.  At 135K you could choose the Girl with the Chain Saw and the German Shepherd for the animal lover Squad, or the Guy with the Shotgun and the Girl with the Handgun for the Firearms Squad.

This is a picture of the zombie with a Lego type stand below it:



2) Also right now the polls for the 100k stretch goal are leaning towards adding 12 new indoor scavenger cards for the k-mini. These will match up with the Hospital/FEMA camp tiles which were chosen.  As an aside, it's great to see the participation in the forums and how you the backers are working together to help shape the future of Zpocalypse!

3) We've have requests to unlock more $125 levels for those who want to have a custom survivor card. We saw this coming as we’ve been selling them out repeatedly so we posed the question to Ricky, “Can you do more. No really, we mean it.”  His response is a clip that was basically thrown together. We wanted to give you a taste of our behind-the-scenes life.  It was filmed right after PAX East, as in that Sunday night. Those bags under Ricky's eyes are real. So is the hysterical laughter in the background. Also, spoiler- he says yes. Well, we're taking his nonsensical response as a yes.

Sincerely,
The Greenbrier Games Team!

      This is definitely a KickStarter campaign run the RIGHT way. :)

      If you guys want to know what will bring on the zombie apocalypse, it's got nothing to do with radioactivity, disease outbreak, or spoiled milk. Just get your buddies together and try to create and then market a board game. Proven method!

      Wow! Am really happy to see you guys having fun doing this project, despite the obvious insane workload. As a backer, I am assured that it's a labour of love for you and u won't let anything get in the way of this project being awesome. Great job guys! Ps... I think Ricky needs a drink and a nap! Or maybe a clone to help w the portraits! Thanks for all the updates and hardwork!
