      We got our copy and had fun playing our first game! The wife was especially surprised by how great everything looked. Look forward to playing this with our regular board gaming crew! Congrats!

      The samples for the game just arrived this morning. Everything looks absolutely great! I noticed a few things that I will correct but the components are beautiful. I will have an update out in the next day or two with a group of complete product shots.

      I wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be posting an update sometime in the next day or so that will explain the timeline for the Dark Horse board game. I should have the new territory map artwork by then as well so I will drop that in as a sneak peek. Plus, I have been working on the "Insiders Group" site and things are going well. My update will also include some information on when things will get fired up for that effort as well.

      I am so pleased this made it! This is easily one of the most anticipated games on my list since I heard of it. . . three weeks ago. Seriously, congratulations!

      Thank you! All you have to do is click on the blue "Manage Pledge" button and you can change rewards and dollar values. Kickstarter will send you back to Amazon to confirm the change. So you dont have to cancel your previous reward. I was thinking the same thing until I adjusted one of my pledges awhile back. Its actually pretty easy. :-)

      Congratulations! Can't wait to see (and play!) the final version.
      One question though: If I increased my pledge, is it a good idea to cancel the payment authorization for the lower pledge? Or will that cause problems?

    7. Kw_logo.small

      Creator Knight Works on June 17, 2011

      Thanks for all support everyone. I will continue to post updates as I know more about the time line for getting this Dark Horse out of the gate. All new layouts and design will come as updates in the next couple weeks.

      CONGRATULATIONS! I consider this a major win (I was gonna haz a sad if this was not funded)!

      Creator Jeff King on June 17, 2011

      Awesome!

      I also posted this project to my Facebook well before I was even able to become a backer myself.

      Here's hoping the next 4 days add a decent amount of icing on the cake, after such a close race to funding!

      I look forward to getting my copy of the game and hopefully running it at my convention for others as well!

      Congratulations!

      for the first time ever i've actually posted a link on my facebook to get additional support for this project. i hope my friends decide to not bash me in the head. i really hope this succeeds. :)

      If you guys are tense then I'm about to have a heart attack! I have crossed my fingers, toes, eyes and anything else I could think of. I am going to work on a custom handcrafted wood box for Dark Horse this weekend. If things go well, and I dont cut my hand off, I will post the new reward with pics on Sunday. Hopefully that will help in hitting our goal.

      The interesting thing about the reward is that supporters will receive a hand made copy of the game within 30 days of the project closing. Plus, I will be throwing in a bunch of other rewards. So for say $250 a couple lucky backers will get Lifetime Copies, or Caricature Card, or (design your own card/expansion preview) AND the custom deluxe boxed version of the game.

      Color me wrong. I thought that 4k in 12 days was going to be impossible, but the internet is proving me wrong. Really hoping we can all squeak this one out with the final week. I *might* cancel my $40 pledge and re-pledge @ $120 depending on the states of this project in the next few days. My Credit Card is shaking with fear...

    15. Kw_logo.small

      Creator Knight Works on June 10, 2011

      No problem, I added an additional line into the "Reward Disclaimers" section for the Designer Chat. Backers can include that option by adding $20 to any reward level.

    16. Meridae.small

      Creator Doug Bass of Meridae Games on June 10, 2011

      I would be interested in the designer chat reward, if it simply included the 1 hour chat and two copies of the game, but no expansions or special cards. Could you add a reward like that? How much would it cost?

    17. Kw_logo.small

      Creator Knight Works on June 9, 2011

      Don't count this Dark Horse out of the race quite yet. :-)

      Everyone could stir things up at a grass root level by tweeting, facebooking, and emailing your friends. If each backer can bring in just one more friend to the project we will definitely hit our goal. When you add the quick link http://kck.st/jjjOv0 to a facebook wall post its adds a nice link to the Kickstarter video with a short description. Once I can build up a small fan base then the expansion and other games will be a lot easier to get out to the public.

      $4000 in 12 days... Upsetting. I was really looking forward to getting this funded as it seems like one of the more original games on this site. What can we do?

      Creator Cryogenic Entertainment on June 3, 2011

      I wish you the best of luck on this project, I have always really liked board games, but I have found that there are less outlets for finding really cool board games like this one then there are for video games. So I really hope you succeed so I can play it.

      Creator Knight Works on May 31, 2011

      Thank you! The review copies are starting to trickle out and should be in place for the last two weeks of the project. I am unfortunately cutting it close but I'm excited and confident that we will make it! I just need to get one little foot in the doorway and then all of the other projects at Knight Works can start rolling.

      I did speak with the admin at Purple Pawn and DH is listed in the weekly Kickstarter list. I have tried to poke around BGG a little bit but I probably should concentrate more on the forums. Thanks for the hints. If there is anything you can do to drop a line here and there that would be great too. - Don
