Update #17: Final Stretch Goals, A Shark Frenzy, and Doctor Zeez's Conclusions
We've had a bit of a surge in the last couple days, and we appreciate all the support for our strange little game (okay, our strange big game). We've been grateful for all the publicity we've gotten from sites like this interview on GamingTrend. Thanks to everyone for spreading the word.
Okay, we've unlocked everything we've put out there so far, so it's time to unveil our last stretch goals.
Stretch goals: More dice, RPG missions, and the Day Zero promo card
One of the restrictions on the design team has been a maximum of 16 dice in the box. Too expensive, too heavy, etc. You know how it is. Spreadsheets.
Well, heck with that. If we reach $300,000, every set will come with 20 dice. This will either increase the number of dice of a specific color you can roll or create a spillover color so that you don't choose a different color for your extra dice on a roll. We're still debating that one. But hey, more dice!
The designers also keep agitating for more RPG missions. So if we reach $315,000, we will include nine example RPG missions either in the Gamemastering Guide (if we have space) or as a free PDF of DriveThru. These will be short missions like "Tabula Rasa" from the playtest rules, and will be usable with the mission cards in the game.
The most special promo card in the game is the exclusive Day Zero promo card. It is a card we plan to make available to retailers and conventions until the day before the game goes into retail, and then it will never again be available from us. If we hit our highest stretch goal of $333,333, everybody on this campaign gets it.
It's also probably the coolest card in the game and we can't tell you any more about it. So if we get to that extremely thematic number, you will all get one.
Vote for sharks!
One of the designers on this game is Paul Peterson, who also designed the brilliant game Smash Up. TODAY ONLY, you can go to the It's All Your Fault page and vote for the next Smash Up deck! And let me see if I can phrase this gingerly….
THERE ARE SHARKS AND YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR THEM
There. I feel better now.
Doctor Zeez's Journal, Entry #10
Doctor Zeez has the polypagus cornered. And skinned. And… ick.
If you find what Doctor Zeez will use to defeat the polypagus, send it in an email to (whatever your answer is)@lonesharkgames.com (without spaces). You will be rewarded by auto-reply with the Badge of the Saints if you do, and you can turn it into your icon on Twitter, Facebook, Kickstarter, or anywhere else. Please do!
Just one day to go. Thanks, everyone, for supporting the Apocrypha Adventure Card Game. We really appreciate it.
Mike and the Sharks
