You Went Prospectin' For Gold ....
.... and found MORE UNLOCKED STRETCH GOALS! The campaign has now exceeded $200k, and you've managed to add more great content to your copy of Western Legends.
What You Unlocked
At $180k, you added a new item card to the Fistful of Extras expansion. You can purchase the Holster from the General Store for a cost of $30. Once purchased, the Holster can come in handy in a fight. After cards are revealed in a fight, you may discard any number of Poker Cards from your hand. For each card you discard in this way, you decrease the value of a card played against you by a value of 1.
Having extra ammunition on your belt makes you tougher to beat. The Holster is almost a must-have item for you if you decide to go Wanted. Being able to decrease the value of your opponent's cards make it more difficult for them to successfully arrest you.
Having reached $200k, you added four more Story Cards to the Fistful of Extras expansion. Additional Story Cards means more rewards, more replayability, and more Sheriff movement. The flavor text on these cards helps bring the world to life.
Here is the flavor text from two of the cards you've unlocked:
Pay Dirt: "Down in the cold dark rock, there's a fortune to be had. There's also coyotes, spiders, snakes, and bandits down there often enough, too."
Western Royalty: "It ain't exactly bright to wander into town flashin' money like yer English royalty. That is unless yer aimin' to get robbed, swindled, or just plain bothered by folks lookin' for charity."
We're revealing three more stretch goals to you. Take a look at the next targets. We think you'll be excited by these goals!
At $220k, another component upgrade will be unlocked. This time, all cards in the game will be upgraded to 310 GSM, making them all more sturdy.
When the campaign gets to $240k, we'll unlock a new player miniature. This one is a bit different than the other player minis unlocked so far - it's Wyatt Earp himself! Wyatt's miniature will find its way into the Fistful of Extras expansion.
And, at $260k, we'll add a new character to the Fistful of Extras expansion. This time around, it's Buffalo Bill Cody. When we reach this goal, we'll unlock Buffalo Bill's character card and his four character goal cards.
