Have a question?
Thanks for the lastest update and good luck on finding a way to get that last SG included. I’d really love to see it added if at all possible.
@Jan - Message sent with the Sailing Master player board preview image link.
Thx for the update. But actually I wanted to see the player that I gave the name ;) ^^ just to control it everything is correct before the games goes to production;)
@Patrick Sayet - Quite possibly yes! We're very much hoping for delivery to start some time in November IF (big IF) all goes to plan.
could be september or october?
@Patrick Sayet - Finishing the PM now will charge your card. As far as we understand, when the PM is closed for preorders any accounts that are not yet completed will remain and be able to be completed essentially forever (though obviously forever would not be a good idea because then you'd never get your rewards!).
We will be closing the PM to new preorders on the 29th of this month. If you're already in the system, you're good to go and can complete it when the funds are available to you.
if I fill now, is the credit ard charged now or when you close the PM?, if then, when? (need to know a bit in advance to be sure the funds are there)
That would be awesome :) thx
@Jan - There was a print and play yes! However, it was removed just before the end of the campaign. No new content would have been added to the PnP at any rate. :)
I'll see what I can do about a higher resolution player board image in the next update if possible.
Wasn't there a print and play version to download?I'm sure I saw it two month ago. I just wanted to check if you added new content there :D
Actually I just wanted to see the player boards in detail.
Can we see the player boards in high resolution please ?
@Mel - HOPEFULLY yes! Assuming no excessive delays that are out of our control, it's looking like a distinct possibility! :D
Getting it at the end of the year - now that is something! +1
Wanna! Wanna! *drool*
Getting updates from Sanford Illustration .. ooooo, exciting! I can't wait to show everyone the new character designs coming!
We've been putting together the punch boards for the tiles, tokens and standees and working with the manufacturer to get everything just right. Things are moving along.
Updates to come this weekend hopefully!
See it now!
Thanks Never Grow Up Gaming. +1
@Brandon - Not yet, unfortunately. After failed/dropped pledges, there's still a bit to go to to get there.
Sorry to ask again if it was already asked but i cant remember.... did we ever manage to get to the last streth goal with the player board cutouts with the funds in the pledge manager?
@Michael B - Us too! We can't guarantee it, but we're hopeful that things will go at least relatively smooth. Having most of the files prepped, manufacturing and distribution channels in place beforehand is a big bonus.
Fingers crossed the games don't get held up in ports/customs when that time comes!
Thanks for the update. Excited see we may get the game earlier than expected!
As commented on in the update, here's a link to a larger version of the timeline as well as a text breakdown;
KS Campaign : Ended Mar 29, 2018
Final Illustration/Graphic Design/File Prep/Editing/Proofing : 12 weeks +/-
Manufacturing & Approvals : 4-6 weeks +/-
Sea/Land Freight to Fulfillment Centers : 4-8 weeks +/-
Fulfillment : 4-6 weeks
All approximate and subject to change based on potential issues/errors, customs hold-ups, etc.
This SHOULD put the game on your tabletop approximately (at the long end), Dec 2018/Jan 2019, ahead of schedule. Of course, problems are possible and manufacturing loads, customs, freight times may cause delays, but we're definitely looking to be on schedule if not early for our estimated delivery date given during the campaign!
@Mel - I was wondering if it would be difficult to read. I'll see about adding a link to a full size version (Updates/KS adjusts the size of things in weird ways).
The Timeline in the update needs to be increased in size as very difficult to read.... -1
New update is appreciated! +1
@Pascal - Working hard at getting things prepped for manufacturing and getting the final illustrations done. There will be another update soon! Cheers!
It's been quiet around here lately
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY Everyone! What are you playing today?
@Tapio K - Getting there but it's been slow on the late pledges .. painfully slow!
How are we doing with late pledges and the final stretch goal? Is there any chance to unlock it?
If anyone is having issues with Pledge Manager, please please let me know through private message. Most issues can be dealt with fairly easily.
If you have NOT received your email invite, let me know and I will re-send or manually enter your information if needed.
If you have received your email invite but are having other issues, please send me a message with details and we'll get it worked out. Most issues are relatively small and easy to fix if I've got the details.
We're at 80% pledge manager completion right now, which is pretty good.
I hear that about PledgrManager. Another (heavy item) campaign is running through PM and it's all sorts of messed up.
pledgemanager.com support is sadly bad, but I hope we can figure it out. Never had issues with crowdox, backerkit etc, just with pledgemanger.com now the 2nd time.
Looking forward to the game, any development roadmap?
@Zane and anyone else who has not yet got their pledgemanager invite;
All invites were emailed out. Some have (for one reason or another) not actually been deliverable. I will send out a new invite to anyone that lets me know they have not received theirs yet.
That said, no worries as there is still plenty of time to resolve any issues and I'll do whatever I can to make sure everyone gets their info in.
@Vincent W - So far we've made up for the failed pledges and a little extra but not enough to hit that SG. Still hoping and still time.
I'm curious if we were able to meet the last stretch goal via the PM?
Ok I have followed the appropriate channels so far and can not get a response on why I haven't received my pledge manager. Please help
@Team K2 - We already sell the dice in our webstore at iwillnevergrowup.com in sets of 5 (one of each color) if anyone is interested (however, the dice that come in the game should be much more vibrant than what we currently have available, as seen in the previews).
@Creator: It's unfortunate that you didn't include an add-on of Custom Dice in the color of your choice... I backed simply to help fund the goal... But it would have been nice to have something to remember the game by (like 3 of your custom dice in 1 of 4 colors)... Cheers!
@Jan - Yeah, that's it. Because you're in the special pledge level you can't just upgrade to "all in" with no additional shipping.
If you JUST add expansions and/or the base game there is extra shipping. If you go from "The Booty (base game only)" to "All In" or one of the other pledges with only one expansion there's no extra shipping.
@All "Special Pledge Level" backers - (ie: Namer of Names and There Be Pirates About) - If you wish to add the expansions you will be refunded the additional $6 per expansion shipping charge to accommodate this awkward issue.
@Jan - Yeah, unfortunately post campaign some additional shipping costs have to be added, though I'll check on the amount (you're in a special case too with the Namer of Names pledge)
Uff..I didn't know the shipping costs will increase so much when I add the addons. Its 12 dollar additional shipping when i take both addons ?
Looks like some people just click on the links provided in the Updates, without actually reading what those updates tell them... personally I thought the text in the update was quite clear
@Escavenger - Ok, I see you're an all-in pledge during the campaign. When the PM invites go out you will confirm your information then.
@all - If you backed during the campaign, do not use the Late Pledge option linked above! Wait for the PM invite to arrive in your email and then confirm your information.
@escavenger - did you back on ks or just now as a late backer?
If the former you have to wait for your data to be entered into the pm (after ks releases it to me).
If the later an all in pledge is most certainly there as its been chosen a few times already by late backers.
I did the all in pledge.. but didn't see it in the pledge manager.. was that just a KS thing.. if so am I done.. I don't need to approve anything in the pledge manager like address?
yes I went to the pledge manager.. and I put the money in to get both expansions.. only there is no upgrade path for the game and both expansions? Or have I missed something?
Yeah, thanks @IWNGUG for including the late pledgers in the count towards that last SG. Would be awesome if we can still make it!
Awesome news for the late comers and we can only hope we get enough backers to achieve the last sg.
@Pascal Landry - Could be. Testing it out now to see if the dog needs some more balancing.
This could be an alternate rule.
@Oregon Amy - There are a couple of corridor tiles with bones in them. I'm definitely testing out the use of this as a balancing mechanism for the Space Dog!
Lol! I was just joking, but I like Hattie’s version. As long as there aren’t a LOT of bones in the corridor (I’m playing space dog for sure!)
@Hattie - Much better idea yes. Sure, it's a little random but fun. Especially when the Space Dog is pretty "over the top" compared to some characters already (5 health, 5 move, great search .. horrible attack (would rather play fetch than fight!), increased hand limit (cat minions carry gear)), it needs a few things to knock it down every once in a while. :)
@All - UPDATE coming at the end of the week. Pledgemanager invites coming as soon as I can grab the info from KS to send them (I don't get most of the info until the money has been transferred from KS to my business account).
Maybe not lose a turn but, lose one movement?
