Day 17: New rewards ahead!

Posted by Kolossal Games (Creator)

Hello, backers!

We have unlocked yet another goal, the Dized interactive Rulebook!

Dized is the ultimate companion app for board games. Dized will host a tutorial that allows players to get into the board games without any prior studying (rulebooks or videos). Dized is like a friend at the table that teaches you the game while you play. 

We are fast-approaching our next goal at $700k, a signed fan favorite print for backers! This will be a Kickstarter exclusive, signed by the creators with a message to all of the people that helped bring life to this campaign! This will be perfect to frame and hang on the wall at home, work, or in your dreadnought!

If you go to the main campaign page you can see that we have added an exciting goal for Worlds Afar: translucent acrylic dice! These 12 dice can be used for epic space battles in style!

You may have noticed that we are jumping to $50k spreads between goals. As we close out the campaign, these will be easily unlocked as we push into the final 48 hours, wherein all the backers that hit "remind me" on the campaign page will have the opportunity to show their support! As such, we will resume with daily updates, even if to cover the new rewards ahead!

We cannot stress enough how much we appreciate all of the passion and progress over these last two weeks. As we near the event horizon of the campaign, we ask backers to share the page. Our goal is to end this campaign with a bang, unlocking our final goals and making this experience as memorable as possible!

      id rather have a full set of solid dice. translucent can be harder to read from across the table

      @Shawn good idea! Hopefully they'll offer add-ons so you can get a full set of each.

      This campaign still sucks. I'm just waiting to cancel at the last minute so i can laugh at all the failing happening here. Trogdor is doing better than this campaign. You should be ashamed kolossal.

      Having the translucent dice might actually be helpful for those instances where you have two ships that hit on different #'s but are using the same dice. Now you can roll them both at the same time...

      I'm with @Robert Dijkman Dulkes:
      "I just want a second set of the dice from the base game and do not care for translucent dice. I don’t pretend to speak for anyone but myself, but please consider changing your decision on this. Why would you think we want a set of mismatched dice?"

      Please let me CHOICE my dice...

      i also just want more of the same dice from the main set, please dont make non matching dice!

    7. Richard Osterhout

      wow, dice that are going to be different from those in the set...i'm in agreement with the others here - this is Kolossal-ly stupid. if i wanted dice that were different, i'd just buy my own. here's a set of translucent dice with all the colors needed for about $10 ( i'm pledged already for the whole kit and kaboodle, but i agree with the others that this is a (yet another) bad decision. the dice should match! after all, you've already got them sourced, so why not drive the price down for you by just ordering more? why switch to another product SKU??? SMH...

      Different dice? I just want a second set of the dice from the base game and do not care for translucent dice. I don’t pretend to speak for anyone but myself, but please consider changing your decision on this. Why would you think we want a set of mismatched dice?

      Kolossal,you guys are certainly shameless

      It’s a little tough looking this campaign crawling through the lack of prepareness how this KS is being run. It shows..
      Hopefully you have a good SG to close the deal (and campaign). Also it would be cool if you’d properly use this platform in any way of exclusive content, at lezst one exclusive SG, at this moment way too many potential funders are just waiting for retail.

      Weird choice to make the new dice different, without being able to buy extras of these. I don’t want to sound too harsh, but I’d advice to watch some previous popular boardgaming kickstarters and pick up a book or two about marketing, so future campaigns take a benefit of this.

      Is there any plans of doing a local network app to do the playmates and tech?

    12. Craig Tubbs on

      Dized app looks great! When I bring in new players I'm going to let it do all the work.

      @Sascha, we are nearing the end of the campaign and all of the planned content for the game. The last 48 hours is traditionally very busy (statistically speaking, it can be roughly 33% of total funding on an average campaign). We are still unlocking goals and we are confident we will make it through all of the planned content by the end of the campaign. To do this, however, we will have to adjust to the anticipated funding pace.

    14. Brandon

      They just want to spread load the remaining subpar stretch goals?

    15. Sascha Heib on

      Increasing the SG gaps to 50k... Why now? Because it will be easily unlocked? It's still watching a snails race.

    16. Kolossal Games 10-time creator on

      @Zak These 12 dice are unique from the other dice included in the game. Unfortunately, we will not have an option to choose one set or another. At this time there will not be additional dice add-ons to the game.

    17. Shawn Charney [TundraThunder] on

      @Zak you could always try to find someone with whom to swap. Someone would get all standard... The other all translucent..

      I'd like to know if all the dice will be upgraded as well -- that would be excellent.

      Zak on

      "translucent acrylic dice" - these 12 are in a different style to the ones included with the game, or does this stretch goal upgrade all the dice in the game so we get a consistent style?

      If different style, can we choose to not get them, and instead get extra of the regular dice?

      Can we get an optional add on of an extra full set of (regular) dice too please? I don't know that 12 extra (wonder what the split between yellow/orange/red/blue would be with only 12 extra) is going to cover the dice shortage that can happen in big battles.
