We're Funded! PLUS first two stretch goals down!
Thanks to all of you - our wonderful backers - Western Legends is fully funded and will be coming to your tables in the near future! Strap on your trusty steel and get ready to build your legend across the Wild West.
We've unlocked both of our social stretch goals as well. By funding, we will be running a Flavor Text Contest that allows you to contribute flavor text to the "Man in Black" deck. You can send your submissions to us on this BoardGameGeek thread.
We have also unlocked the "Choose an Expansion Character" social stretch goal by exceeding 100 fans of Western Legends on BoardGameGeek. You will have three days to submit your favorite Wild West characters in this BoardGameGeek thread. We will choose our favorites and post a poll on Friday (Jan 12) for you to vote. The winner will be added to the Fistful of Extras expansion!
We have also exceeded $63,000, which means you've unlocked our first stretch goal - the Fistful of Extras expansion. This expansion will include all of the unlocked stretch goals and will be included for all backers at the Sheriff pledge level and higher. The first stretch goal to be added to this expansion is a NEW CHARACTER - Belle Starr!
Belle Starr was a notorious outlaw that fraternized with some of the most dangerous criminals of the time. Though her time as an outlaw was shortlived, she was wanted for numerous offenses, including murder and stagecoach robbery. After her mysterious death, she became popularized as "The Bandit Queen" through dime novels and the National Police Gazette.Once her special ability is unlocked, she is exceptionally good at fighting NPC characters (the Sheriff, guard, and bandits), reducing the value of their fight cards by a value of 2. Being the "Bandit Queen," she also has the ability to earn Wanted points by defeating bandits.
By reaching $70,000, we're adding four more Story Cards to the Fistful of Extras expansion. These cards help increase the replay value of your Western Legends experience and add more life to the world around you.
NOTE for our French backers: If you wish to see a French-language edition of the game published, please make sure that you are backing at ONLY the Legendes de l'ouest level. If you have pledged at another level and want the French-language edition, please update your pledge to this level so we can get an accurate count of those interested. This will make it easier to reach the 250 backers required to unlock this version of the game. Once we've reached the 250 backers needed, you will be able to upgrade your pledge to the desired higher tier.
