@Michel: You could get a pair with the Demotivator if you retrieve while you still have an available worker.
Could you explain a lite more how you would go about getting a "pair" with the Demotivator?
From the wording and chronological order on the card I would chose a die and the roll a die after doing so when retrivieng two die?
Or is the example text refering to a situation when I have a die/worker already and that is the one I match up to with my first worker/die I bring home?
Ah, thank you, Jamey, should've read the text on the card more carefully :)
@Evgeni: So, the new text for Yordy reads, "When you retrieve workers for free, you may [1 energy] to select the knowledge of 1 worker instead of rolling it. Then roll the other retrieved workers as normal."
The reason that the cards specifies you have to retrieve workers for free is that there's a built-in cost to doing so--unless you're at 1 morale, you have to lose morale to use the ability (because he's the Demotivator).
Hi, Jamey, thanks for the update! If I may ask one question regarding the description of Yordy The Demotivator's skill, just to be sure I've not missed something in the rules - why is ti specified you need to retrieve for free to set up the combo, shouldn't it be the same if you pay for retrieving?
2 more plays tonight. Got to play with a 3rd too, soo...Whoo!
@SuperG: It looks like Dave lists his e-mail publicly on boardspace, so I feel comfortable sharing it here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jamey, Do you know if there is a better place to provide Dave with feedback directly. Played my first game today and there will be more. He's done an impressive job for certain.The computer screen really makes you realize how massive the IRL board is though.
@Radek: BGG's shipping rates are usually quite reasonable because it's just a few cards. Localizing these items will be tough, but if you have a FLGS who wants to buy a bunch of the cards directly from me (just to cover shipping), please have them contact me ASAP. I want to avoid doing that too much, but I'm willing to make a few exceptions.
Is there any possibility of getting localized cards (through BGG store, buying from your partners, or any other way)?
Yay, I got a shout out! :)
@Miguel: I'm glad to hear it!
@Jonathan: I won't say no to that, but it's not a priority at this time for my graphic designer.
@Anthony: I owe a lot of gratitude to that site, so I'm glad we can contribute in that way. :)
@Jamey, thanks for putting your updated cards on BGG. Supporting that site as well as easy access is excellent! Hope things are well!
While I wouldn't expect physical cards, is there any chance of seeing a pdf of the Faceless recruits?
The Euphoria online implementation is just great. Of course, it takes just a few turns to get used to the interface, but I'm also a Boardgame Arena user and I don't think one is better than the other. Congrats, Dave and thanks a lot!
great support for great game ! :-)
Yes I like it. sorry didn't mean to offend -0-
Milo: Dave spent a lot of time working on it for free--he did it for all of you. Can we just be happy it exists at all on any platform? :)
Just played online version. really fun
but why my opponent roll double / triple that much T-T
any way it's a really good game
is it possible to appear in http://en.boardgamearena.com/ ?
I think it has better interface.
@Raymond: The updated recruits are in each Treasure Chest, so if a backer gets 2 Treasure Chests, inside each of those boxes will be 1 set of updated recruits.
@Don: Thanks! That's my goal. :)
@Christian: Thanks for your feedback. I'll share it with Dave.
Played the online version for a short bit... I'll go in for a full game with a real person later. Works pretty well, but the board is a little hard to read at this size (even though I know the game well). I'd suggest using the backside of the board with desaturated background, or maybe give the option? In real life I play with the full color board, but in this version, I feel the black and white background would help.
Good looking out Jamey, thanks for being for the people. ;)
Just clarifying - are the updated recruits sent per backer of Treasure Chest, or per set of Treasure Chest ordered? I plan on getting 2 sets of Treasure Chest, but also happen to own two copies of Euphoria. Thanks!
@Starla: Thanks for your input on BGG!
@Ryan, Paul: That's not one of the add-ons we can offer. The updated recruit cards won't have a SKU of their own and thus don't fit into our fulfillment system--if you want extras, that's one of the reasons why we're sending them to the BGG store, which doesn't require SKUs.
There is a clarification on the Lounge, but the essence of the tile is the same. Basically it just clarifies that you can continue to place workers on a construction site that only you occupy. It's a tile, which makes it much harder to reprint as a one-off, so we won't be offering that.
@Paul: Oh no, these cards (and the Treasure Chest) won't be available until December. Gen Con is almost a month from now! :)
Wish you could edit posts on KS. In my previous post when I referred to 'them' I was referring to the cards being on BGG and not the treasure chest!
What about the Lounge of Opulent Frugality? Will we be able to get an updated version as well?
Echoing EB's statement, is there still a change to the Lounge of Opulent Frugality market?
Although I think it is a quality piece of kit, I have no use for the treasure chest so I will wait for them to hit the BGG Store in December. Thanks for doing it this way as it makes life a lot easier for us UK based people. For those who don't know, most things from the BGG Store only cost $1 shipping to the UK - as someone who regularly imports games and accessories from the US I can tell you that is a bargain!
A probably silly question, the recruits wouldn't be ready in time for a GenCon pick up, would they?
I was going to echo Ryan S.' question. I'm typically not one for modding my games, but I was planning on doing a Toast for Treasure Chest since I still love to support Stonemaier. If there are logistic issues with doing this as an add-on, I understand and will just pick them up via BGG.
Wasn't there an updated tile too or is that no longer relevant?
Can the updated recruits be an add-on to the Treasure Chest? I've got a friend who's backing it, but he's keeping his new recruits for himself--can he pledge $5 or so for another set of recruits for me?
That's very exciting news about online play! Hurrah!
And thank you for the extraordinarily classy way you've handled the updated cards. Two thumbs up!
