Revised Solo/CoOp Rules (with video) and other news!

Hello Darkrock Ventures backers!

Hello everyone!! It's been a little while but we have some news for you!

I have been getting more messages than usual regarding the fact that Darkrock Ventures has become difficult to find for sale online recently, and that is intentional. Early on, we had a trial run with a special Amazon program for crowdfunding projects called Seller Central...anyhow, an agent from Amazon was really gungho about it and emailed me about three times a day to get me on board. To start the process we were to send some samples of the game to Amazon for them to sell and they would supposedly send more buy orders afterward. Well after we signed up and sent the case of games our agent became an absentee-parent and just added to the problem we had early on with other online-retailers trying to out-undercut each other, we chose to cut off the supply until it ran dry.

Now that it seems to be doing exactly that, we plan to reintroduce Darkrock Ventures back to regular distribution at a new MSRP of $44.99 USD. It will also appear on Amazon now that the fulfillment partner who helped us fulfill the Fire of Eidolon campaign has also helped us set up our own proper Amazon business account and now we have much more control over the online sales and pricing. FoE is available on Amazon now directly from us but it is fulfilled by Amazon and soon DRV will likely be available the same way. If you know of a retail store that might be interested in carrying Darkrock Ventures, or any of our products, please have them reach out to us at Orders@MagicMeepleGames.com and we'll make sure they are taken care of properly (with some bonus promos and supplies to host DRV tournament at your FLGS too, if you're interested!)

For anyone who would like to order copies of our other games at nearly the original KS price right now, we'd like to invite you to the Pledge Manager for our Overworld campaign, which is now open to all of our past and present backers! Even if you did not back the Overworld campaign or would like to now, you can! Just click on the image below to visit the project page!
