@Jim Todd - Thanks for the understanding! I often struggle with how often to send communication, as I do think if you do it too often, it tends to get annoying and/or ignored. These comments sections are great as a way to keep active without cluttering up inboxes! Sorry to hear about the other non-communicative KS. I do hope they are just struggling with communication and end up delivering in the end! KS projects that don't deliver give the enter platform a bad reputation :(
No problem on the delay, because you're communicating and being up front with us. I'm backing another KS that is setting a new low bar. If you ever WANTED people to think they were never getting their stuff, that KS would be the model. Stuff happens...communication goes a long way.
@Jason Elliott - Not sure what's up with the "house in order" comment; no house out of order here! Just making sure we do this 100% correctly, rather than make a mistake with anything. It's funny that you mention an update - there should be a New Year's update going out today!
I do not appreciate no official update for December. You need to get your house in order and tell us what is going on.
@Saytrsong - Supporting sleeved cards is a go. See Update 17 for info about the box.
@Alex Spaanstra - Hope your holidays were nice and relaxing! Final development on the game is chugging along, deposit has been sent to the printer, and final file prep is happening as we speak!
I would also like a holiday update to this game.
And did we ever determine if the box will support sleeved cards as is?
All is quiet on the savage planet! How goes the project?
Hi @Mario. It's playable as two-player, but definitely best with three or more, as the interactions are more varied that way! As you play around with it and get familiar with how it all works, if you are paying with 2, you may want to lower the number of cards in each deck. "Deck build" to a certain extent: build the Legacy deck with at least 3 from each race of your favorites - she picks 9, you pick 9 - etc, and the same with Labor (as long as you are left with at least 24 cards in the Labor deck). You may also choose to leave out certain Trials that don't make a difference when playing with only 2 (the one that reverses War, for example).
@Imp House, LLC - Have you guys come up with a viable 2-player variant? Sometimes it's just the girlfriend and I so being able to play Savage Planet with only 2 people would be great.
@Joe Costa - No, no way to hit that Dec. In one of our recent updates, we noted January, and we are trying as hard for that (most likely end of Jan/early Feb).
Is the ETA still December?
So, whats new over here?
@Jack Bradbury - thanks for staying on top of that; always helpful come fulfillment time!
Just wanted to let those paying attention know that we're planning to post an update with all the new Trials Deck information by the end of today!
Thanks guys! My address is now updated. Looking forward to January.
@ Jim Todd - No new developments, just trucking along, but we'll be posting the updated Trial cards (and other cards as well) very soon for everyone to take a look at before final submission!
@Jack Bradbury - You can adjust your delivery address through the survey, which you can find through your "backed projects" list (click on Savage Planet to get to the project homepage, hit "view your pledge" and click the "survey" tab. We will allow address changes up until the week it begins fulfillment, and we'll give a heads-up before it's closed.
Hi there, I'm going to need to change my delivery address as am moving house before Christmas. What's the best way to do this please guys?
Literally just hit "send" on the newest update :)
Can't wait to get my hands on this. Update?
@William Gull - We've got an update planned for this week, so watch for that!
Really looking forward to this one, coming together great!
Can you guys upload hi-res pics of the box?
Now that is one gorgeous box. Great artwork on the trials as well.
Oh! I forgot to send out an update with the final Cosmic Trials art, which we got last week! Look for that soon, along with a schedule update. Our final rounds of playtesting had to be postponed due to various summer scheduling changes among our playtesters, but we built in a few weeks of padding, so I don't think it significantly affects our overall schedule; have to check in with the manufacturer next week to be sure!
@Joe DiPietro - Cards are standard poker size (2.5" x 3.5"), and final count is coming soon; we are currently playtesting a couple of extra Trials to include :) As soon as we send to the printer (probably end of August), we'll update with the final count!
Are there card counts and card sizes listed somewhere? I looked quickly but didn't see any.
Hi @Harambe! As per the FAQ and Update 13, we made the financial decision not to use (and pay extra for!) a third party service for "pledge managing." We do have the game and mat available on our website for pre-order, and we'd be happy to credit your current pledge amount towards your pre-order. We'll send you a private message here on Kickstarter to organize it with you!
Wait... Is there not going to be a pledge manager?
I had to do a $1 pledge but can afford the full game now.
Don't have any surveys
Thanks! Got the email but missed the but at the end! All sorted now
@Dan leacy - After confirming you should have received an email. In that email there should be a link where you can still edit your details.
Hello! I filled it the address thing but realised that the auto address marchwood has deleted the phone number. Do you guys need that and if so, how do we update it?
@The Rooster - we have them available on out website; I will send you a message here on Kickstarter to let you know how to add one on!
Bah ! I meant to add a mat and totally forgot. Is there anyway to reopen my pledge and add one ? Thanks
@Tsvetan Buchkov - I'm so sorry you missed our updates about those add-on pledges. Please send us a message here on Kickstarter, and we can definitely work something out for KS backers who missed them!
@Buckov they announced it in borh update #10 and #12. Maybe you can add it during the pledge manager
Great. The pledge levels were changed during the campaign and things were added that I can no longer order (art print) or will order at a higher price (mat).
1. This is not how you do things.
2. Can I cancel my pledge somehow?
If you haven't joined our Facebook group yet, you should; we'll be posting a few of the sketches of the Cosmic Trials card art there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/savageplanet/
Oh, and @Schoffo - just realized I never replied! Yes, those should fit without an issue, but I can't 100% guarantee it, since I don't know the exact size of each crystal. You could also do 3 denominations with those (if no players are colorblind)!
Looking forward to that update! :)
Just a quick update - we should have updated cards ready to share with you all soon! We've been combing through them this past week to further clarify and standardize the instructions and text on them, and we're looking forward to sharing them!
@Imp House, I hadn't thought about it that way, but it makes sense. Thanks!
I just bought this plastic crystals to replace the cardbord tokens:
Will there be enough space for them in the box?
@Yoel Aharon - as far as the "diplomacy" Trial Cards go, we wanted a visual representation that those will require a vote, so all of those will have the "voting" art on them (there are only 5, so they should be mixed up in the deck when drawing...)
@Ian Smith got his order in just in time before the campaign closed last night :)
