You've Rustled Up Some More Stretch Goals!

28 likes

Another big thank you to every single one of our backers. Thanks to you, we've knocked out more exciting stretch goals since our last update. Everyone who pledged at the Sheriff level or higher will get the following extras inside their copy of Western Legends:

 

At $110,000, we added a NEW CHARACTER to the Fistful of Extras expansion - Isom Dart! This brings the total number of available characters to 14 in the base game (and 17 if you pledged for the Good, the Bad, and the Handsome expansion). Adding new characters adds to the replay value of the game, along with new abilities to use and new gameplay strategies to explore.

 

Born into slavery in 1849, Ned Huddleston later changed his name to Isom Dart. As a teenager, he served a group of Confederate officers by cooking for them and nursing their wounds. When Isom became a free man in 1865, he would travel to Texas, venture into Mexico, steal horses, and bring them back to sell. Isom later became a bronco rider, but could not manage to stay out of trouble. In 1875, he and a gang of thieves were ambushed by an angry rancher for rustling. Everyone in the gang except for Isom was killed.

 

When we reached $120,000, we added four more Story Cards to the Fistful of Extras expansion. More Story Cards means more ways that the world around you comes to life. 

 

By reaching $130,000, we are able to add a cloth bag to hold all of the Legendary Tokens. Without the bag, the tokens are piled on the table for players to pull from as they complete their character goals. The cloth bag adds to the table presence of the game and makes it easier for players to draw their tokens in secret. The cloth bag will be included in the Fistful of Extras expansion.

The next stretch goals - an alternate Bandit miniature sculpt and an alternate player miniature - are within reach. When the alternate Bandit miniature is unlocked, we will replace three of the six base sculpts with the new sculpt. Doing so will give you two different sculpts for the Bandits (three of each). Like the Cowboy player miniature that was unlocked at $100k, the Gentleman sculpt gives you another option when selecting your character mini for the game. Make sure to share the campaign with your friends and family so we can continue adding more content to Western Legends for you.

      All right, cool! Thanks for addressing my comments and the explanation about the Legendary Tokens!

      @DSchwindt73 We have several component upgrades planned for the campaign. Stay tuned to our stretch goals as we unlock them.

      For the Legendary Tokens - these are drawn in secret because they are end-game scoring for you. You don't want your opponents to know how many points will be added to your total at the end. The Legendary Tokens can allow you to sneak into a win - even if someone else triggers the end of the game.

      We have component upgrades--like the dice we unlocked. Player mats are a thick cardstock material at present. Cattle tokens are on punchsheets. Many goals and upgrades ahead.

      MIB has been addressed before launch--Rahdo comments on it over on BGG: https://boardgamegeek.com/video/162592/western-legends/rahdo-runs-through-western-legends…

      Strongly disagree with goals suggestion made. Commented multiple times about this on comments, but will add to FAQ.

      Cattle tokens made from real poker chips?

      Player mats made from thicker cardboard/neoprene? Pre-Painted miniatures?

      How about some material upgrades for strech goals? Like linen finish and premium cardboard for the cards? Dollars that look and feel more like money instead of cards? Cover the blank spots on the game board with additional artwork? Take Rado's thoughts on the Man in black and the Legends into account? I am afraid we overload the game with miniatures madness here.
      And why would you have to draw the tokens in secret?
