Deadline - Sunday!

We need to place the final order for the revised playmats.  We MUST have your orders in by Sunday evening (August 14th) at the latest.  If we receive your backer selections after that, we will do our best to give you the playmats you want, but you may be given random playmat selections.  By default, if you are supposed to get 4 playmats, you will get one of each available design.

Helping the cause

If you've played the game, or when you get your copies, PLEASE visit Boardgamegeek and give us a rating.  You may need to create a (free) account, but once you're in, you can click on the stars next to "My Rating," and then click "Save" on the pop-up. Ratings on BGG help us a great deal. They make the game more visible on the site, which gets an enormous amount of traffic. 
Note that BGG decided to break the game up into an entry for each of the three editions, so placing ratings on each of the three would be ideal!

The Reveal

This guy is serious business!  Shields, Defense Damage, and his ability... he can't be ignored!  

A few of you had questions on how he would work... yes, the Level 2 Gladiator that you Destroy will give those points to your opponent.  Don't make the decision lightly!

His Universal Discipline can count as any Discipline at Level 0.

This card will be available on Drive Thru Cards, in the coming weeks, and we'll be giving a limited number of them out to retailers.  Note that all promotional cards will be available for at least a full month on DTC before they are tournament legal.  The first round of promos will not be tournament legal until October 1, 2016.  No unfair advantages for those who are lucky enough to get one before other players!

Gen Con 2016

The response to the game at Gen Con was tremendous.  We had demos running practically all weekend, and one of our backers, Rick Cripe was crowned the champion of our first combined 2350/2360 event!

Thanks to all,
