Have a question?
Switching out the dials with health and force tokens has been a great idea for my group!
I hope it's been saving you guys a bit in replacement costs as well!
Received and happy with my product. Some of the promo boxes arrived a bit crunched but the product inside was fine so no major complaints. Thanks for designing an awesome 2 player game
Just coming back to say how happy I am with my pledge, the game and Level 99 Service. Thanks very much.
I keep my earlier sets in 25 count plastic card boxes, and then all of them in a Christmas ornament box (each section holds 3-4 characters.) It's heavy as heck, so I pull out the characters I want to play with and keeps my play boards and rules in my War of the Indines box. I'd rather have either a set of tuck boxes for each character, and/or boxes to store everything else in.
My solution are snack sides ziplock baggies for all the characters, with address labels on them giving the name and flight (which I just 3). Then into a rubbermaid container it goes, organized by flight! The main box holds all the bases/special actions/armory/boss/etc cards.
Really my only problem is I need a better way of "topping" the main box so if I carry it on its side in a bag all the cards don't go flying out. Maybe a loose rubber band would help...
Having said that, please don't make any additional expansion to Millennium Blades! My poor boxes are already filled to the top! :)
@Ryan Wanless Amazon has them for $20/50 pack, search "Spiel Pro Plastic Game Card Stands"
While we'd love to offer a larger storage solution for BattleCON, it is a big project that we've been trying to figure out a reasonable solution for, both for us on the production side (logistically) and for the customer (cost). This, coupled with the fact that we have plans for future BattleCON expansions, like Wanderers, means that we haven't been able to come up with a solution that satisfies us at this time. We'll be looking into more options as time goes on and hopefully we'll be able to offer a larger storage solution in the future! Glad to hear you're enjoying our games!
Apologies, but we do not offer extra stands for sale at this time. I am not aware of any sites off hand that would offer a comparable solution.
First like love the new force system i want share cool idea that replace the force with https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3774177/battlecon-trials-indines
@level99 is there a site you recommend where I can buy more plastic stands that will fit the standups? I wouldn't mind one for every character.
Thanks for getting back on my "complains". Sure, I understand that the promo characters aren't part of the Trials core game, but first, they were part of this campaign and second, they came with the same sized tuck boxes, but don't fit.
Obvously BatleCon is a system that isn't just a base game but gets a lot of expansions and promos. I just wonder, why it is so difficult to have one storage system that also allows to store the promo characters.
I have BattleCon since first edition War of indines (and it was quite a small war to get it here in germany at that time) but each game in this series seems to get its own storage system. It would be nice to have one big box with all of the material fitting in (sleeved cards!) instead of endless little boxes, some filled with baggies, some with tuck boxes. Just a wish from me...
And if I didn't stress this enough: Your games are very awesome and highly replayable. Just in case my complaining overshadows my enthusiasm about your games.
@david Did you already received it? I also got the shipping confirmation email on the 26th, but still no game at home :(
I received my game in Spain. I checked everything minus the life and force tokens, and all seems fine. I like the quality of the new cards too. The wait has been worth it.
Great job Level99!
The promotional characters are separate products from Trials, so the Trials box was not designed with them in mind.
The board is a bit of a tight fit, but this appears to be the same across all copies. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Oh, one other thing. At least this is some kind of issue with my copy. the gameboard should have been about a mm smaller. It fits so tightly into the box, that I get it only out by turning the box over and shaking a few times.
I received my game in Germany as well.
Looking good, but there is one issue that I have with other Level99 games as well.
The box is nice to store the 10 characters it comes with. But we didn't get 10 characters, we got 13. Why can't they at least have a storage solution for everything a backer gets? So, off to the trash with the inlay and while everything fits in the box, it looks crappy.
Well, I got my shipping confirmation email, at least. Says it was sent on the 26th. Hoping it arrives soon!
Arrived in UK. Haven't checked every individual force and life token, but everything else seems present. Was looking forward to the fighters, but the halfmats stole the show. Larger than expected, but I'm not one to complain about larger, better resolution images of such gorgeous artwork.
Great job Brad, Ithry. Hats off to you.
Mine arrived in the UK this morning.
Just received the game in Amsterdam, and my shipping confirmation e-mail about an hour and a half later xD
Got my box last week-end, the new power system is great !
Received it in Germany (without notification)
It just showed up. PostNord
@Joel Petersen: Did you get any shipping notifications before hand or did it just show up?
Recieved in Copenhagen :)
Still waiting for mine in Spain. Come onnnnnnn, shipping guys.
Received it in the Netherlands :)
@Stuart Coutts: Yeah, I've had packages go from 2 states east of mine, to 1 state west of mine, back to 1 state east, before finally getting to my place before.
Sometimes you have to wonder at the logic behind it!
>Ships from UK
>Received in France
>Still waiting in UK
(It's good to know it has left the depot now, however.)
great news! still waiting in Poland though. You got any emails with shipment tracking beforehand?
Just received mine in france too.
all content seems in place \o/
EUROPE (France) -> RECEIVED !
So be ready euro-friends :)
(Didn't check the content yet. Hope it's all good ^^)
Iskra does not come with any tokens.
Was the... fire woman promo (from Mage Wars) supposed to come with fire tokens for her ability? Otherwise I'll just steal some of the generic tokens from the other sets! No worry.
Otherwise I have enough cards, etc for 5 games which should be good enough for demos / cons. Base cards loose, of course, the dodge/dash thing taken care of, and all that. Will need to track life / force differently... Any way we could get more of that would be great! Though I still have the spin dials from the older sets for tracking.
I think I'm going to do a goofy one-off game with the weapons next time I play. A single deck of all weapons that both players draw from to form their set of bases. Totally random, but should be fun!
Apologies, but we do not have any plans to make tuck boxes for any promotional characters.
@John Michael Davis
Please contact me via the following link with your issue and I can have some replacement tokens sent out: https://www.level99games.com/contact-us/
still no shipping notification in europe :(
Missing my Lucinda vicious tokens, and would love to buy boxes/storage for the rest of my fighters.
My copy of Trials arrived in Manitoba yesterday! The new characters were a hit with my gaming group (even if my Hayden skills need work...), and the tuck boxes made character selection and clean-up much more convenient.
Everything is top-notch, as I've come to expect from Level 99. Thanks Brad and crew!
@Brad - Any chance we will see tuck boxes for the following?
Claus & Wyndhal
Danny the Sinner
Ernie the Geek
Robert the Saint
I think that is all the promo characters that never got pockets.
@Michael Evans: You should contact us about this. It's not a common issue. https://www.level99games.com/contact-us/
@Mike Norris: These will be the standard for games going forward. We should have them for past characters sometime next year too.
@Michael: We may be offering an upgrade pack with all this stuff with Devastation Remastered (still working on plans for that), so you may wish to wait a bit. :D
@Fumbles: Just send us a message on that contact form and we can share this graphic with you, sure thing!
Funtip: Even if you aren't planning on using the health tokens to track your health, they work great for tracking Xenitia Zook's Draw ability.
@Brad: Can we get a PnP of the overcharge tokens? Printing them on stickers and putting them on pokerchips would make a decent handmade alternative for getting more in later releases.
I'm a fan of the new force tokens/timer and overcharge tokens to simplify the game structure and have to memorize what overcharges you paid for when calculating attacks.
Received mine in Nova Scotia today. 8)
Just unboxed this today, and everything looks great! I'm a huge fan of the tuck boxes and having bases for each fighter. I would definitely grab tuck boxes and bases for all the previous fighters/promos if that became available. Great work @Brad!
I just got my pledge reward today. It looks great but there are a few minor mistakes. I cannot remember if it is a known issues or not but I got 2 tuck boxes for Cindra and none for Uleyle Kimbhe. Should I e-mail someone or are they resending to everyone or is it a it is what it is situation? I am also missing the 4 Vicious Tokens for Lucida.
@Brad (regarding token sets) Interest is unanimous between my friends and I regarding overcharge tokens and buying additional bases. We're all planning to fill out our War/Devastation/Fate characters with the bases from DriveThruGames.
@Brad - Are we going to see Wanderers go out as tuck boxes too?
Got my order and went through it today. I am a partial fan of the tuck boxes. They look great, but....
For this game they work well, but the extra characters don't fit to well in the box with the others. A minor issue.
However i noticed a big problem.
There are the perfect amount of cards to give each character their own set of base moves in their tuck box. That is great...except one big issue:
Dash has become dodge and priority has lowered. So if you use a character outside trials, bases won't balance or you have to steal the card from someone else.
Actually make that two problems because not only will you have to go into the tuck boxes to pull the base cards, but the force special action card should you choose to use a character from any other Indines game.
The obvious solution is tuck boxes for everyone, but that also means reprints of all base cards and force cards for every character to go with their tuck box. Now I have another 80 characters or so, which means i will need an additional 560 cards to get and sleeve and such just to bring everyone to the tuck box set up.
But we all know some will never see a tuck box. Danny, Donnie, Ernie the Geek? Highly unlikely. Promo characters are probably out. So they will still need separate loose cards, and not look as nice. (Just like how they don't have the character pockets either. :(
But there is a bigger problem here. Remember dash changed to dodge, and priority lowered? If in the future there is a change to any other base, or the force card.....every single card in every single character will need to be replaced. So to cover that, Level 99 will have to include an additional 93 or so copies of that one card in the next release.
So sadly my base cards will have to stay loose. :(
@Fumbles: Not at present, but we can include more of these in a future product if people want them.
Canadian pledges have now shipped out as of today!
Spiral Galaxy has informed me that EU pledges will start shipping out next Monday!
So, do we have any news on when EU backers will receive their copies? I'm *terribly* impatient to smack some faces around with Burgundy, I admit!
My game just got delivered- looks awesome!!! The storage solution is superb, and I the new characters look super fun to play.
Thanks for another awesome project, Brad & crew!!!!
