Stretch Goals Revealed, a Survey, and Avatars
Hello from snowy St. Louis! I'm incredibly honored that you chose to support Between Two Cities in the first 24 hours, and I'm elated that you've given us the opportunity to produce Ben and Matthew's game. Thank you so much.
I'm particularly honored that you chose to support Between Two Cities based on what we've already packed into the 10x10x2-inch box. This project doesn't have a ton of stretch goals because the game itself is a streamlined gateway game.
However, we do have some fun stretch goals. I'll post the chart below and then talk about a few of these goals.
As you can see, we've already reached two of the stretch goals. 1500 backers comes from the minimum print run needed to produce a board game--that goal unlocked a fully illustrated scoreboard. I look forward to sharing the art for the scoreboard when it's ready.
Without you knowing it, you also unlocked the second stretch goal: variations in the shop tile art. You're basically getting 16 unique shop tiles instead of the same shop tile repeated 16 times. The intent here is to really bring your cities to life--the tiles will have a mix of different shrubbery, flowers, and people. The building itself will remain the same, as it would be confusing to have 16 totally different buildings. I look forward to sharing some examples with you soon now that we've unlocked that goal!
I'll talk about the other goals in upcoming updates, particularly the solo expansion designed by Morten Monrad Pedersen and the seating randomizer deck, which you're going to help us design!
I'm always curious about the various connections backers have to our projects. So I've created the first of several backer polls for Between Two Cities on this page. You can select all options that apply to you.
We have a badge of honor to celebrate you, our launch day backers! If you'd like to update your backer profile with this image during the Between Two Cities campaign, simply click on your name in the upper right hand corner of this page and select "edit profile."
We love our first-time backers, but the people who have supported all 5 of our tabletop game projects hold a special place in our hearts. Here's an avatar just for them:
Reviews and Interviews
We are extremely grateful to the reviewers and bloggers who took the time to review Between Two Cities and interview me (Jamey) and the designers (Ben and Matthew) before the project. If you're curious about the story of how Between Two Cities came to be or you want to hear a reviewer's perspective on the game, I would highly recommend checking out some of these links.
