Plastic is OUT! Resin is IN!
The Resin Polar Bears are Back!!!
As promised, we listened to the feedback from all of you when you said you were unhappy with the look of the plastic polar bear meeples. We also know many of you really love the original resin meeples in the current version of the game and over the last few days we've been working hard to make this happen for you...
For this Kickstarter print run only, we are doing the original resin polar bear meeples!!! That's right! These will be the adorable-faced original resin polar bear meeples you have all seen and come to love!
This will be a LIMITED print run. Only 2,000 copies will be made with these resin polar bear meeples! So if you want to make sure you get this English translation with these resin polar bear meeples...this Kickstarter is your way to do it!
We are SO excited that we are able to do this, and that's the good news!
The bad news is that any reprints for retail after these 2,000 copies will be the plastic polar bear meeples. We don't know what the final design will be. They very well may be the "mustache version." So here's your chance at the adorable-faced resin meeples!
New Stretch Goals!
Along with the resin polar bears, we have been able to work out a couple of stretch goals! We will be adding a $50k stretch goal and a $60k stretch goal!
Those stretch goals will be "Ice Dice."
So what exactly are "Ice Dice?" Well, The game comes with a 20-sided die and a custom 6-sided die. The stretch goals will be translucent blue "icy" versions of those dice! At $50k you would unlock the custom 6-sided "Ice die" and at $60k you will unlock the 20-sided "Ice die!"
We will be posting the graphics for those stretch goals to the main campaign page ASAP!
Fun Polar Bear Facts!
Did you know that the Polar Bear is generally the largest in terms of average size of the breed. The males usually stand between 8 and 8 1/2 feet and weigh between 900 and 1500 lbs. The largest male weighed 2,210 lbs.
That said, however, the largest bear found was a male Kodiak (a brown bear): he was 14 feet tall and 2500 lbs. On average, however, the Kodiak is 800-1500 lbs and stand 5-10 feet tall. Overall, they're much more dense than Polar Bears, but Polars are still bigger.
