Have a question?
My hope now is that now that they've looked into it and deemed it too costly for Gentes, they can budget accordingly for subsequent releases where there are pieces with too much detail for silk-screening.
I have several games from TMG with stickers and they hold up fine. It was investigated and deemed too costly. I'm fine with it. I don't get the outrage here. It's the game as it was promised. Deliver on time, communicate information about the production and I'll be a happy backer.
@matthew that's such a good punk band, i saw them in the 90s.
Also happy on the stickers heat transfer would be nice. But since there will be a extra set of stickers Incase peeling should occur I am satisfied. Good campaign and excellent response congratulations on a successful campaign.
In one of updates You said: "we have achieved great success and we are therefore able to ensure that it gets every rule in the language of your country."
It's true? Do we have to choose "multi lingual" or does it also apply to the EN version?
@Tjiko - please email this to firstname.lastname@example.org
@Endi - please also email email@example.com so we can get you set up
I am personally happy with the stickers. I would have preferred the heat transfer tiles, sure, but this isn't a big deal to me. I kind of like putting stickers on pieces (even the crazy stickering project that was Orleans!) and as far as durability is concerned, all I want is extras in case a sticker gets ruined, which TMG said they will provide. I definitely prefer these over plain cardboard.
By the way - TMG was very direct about not being able to promise us those heat transfer tiles. They explained that they needed to get a quote. And everyone is aware that Gentes is a rather fairly-priced deluxe game. They just don't have money in the budget for huge additional expenses. I know that's tough for some folks to accept, and sure I wouldn't mind those tiles being offered as an add-on, but every game publisher has to make trade-off decisions and I think they're making a reasonable one here, which aligns well with what they promised us.
@Lance Myxter: OK, thank you, I overlooked this.
I did not receive any e-mail to access my pledge manager. I follow the link in the update to request an e-mail, but I still can not get one. I have checked my junk mailbox, No e-mail inside. What should I do?
In the dutch manual there seems to be a mistake. On page 6 textiles are in French not in Dutch. Can you guys correct that?
EN version is included in all copies multi-lingual game / multi-lingual have only one rulebook extra with choosen language
I was looking at the pledge manager, and it appears I selected the multilingual version instead of English... What should I do to get an English copy when it gets sent out?
@Robert - solo mode will be part of the game. The rules are being tested and refined. We will share the rules when they are done.
@gerraldo - please see the most recent update (#13) for an explanation regarding shipping.
In what language will the names of the letters be in the multi-language edition?
@gerraldo, the update already states that shipping outside US is very expensive. No error.
@Lance Myxter: Can you help? See my comment to Max...
@Max: You're lucky mate... I tried adding some extras for ED & Flip City, ending up with shipping costs of + $ 120,-- for $ 40,-- add-ons!? Flip City: Wilderness ($ 15,--) added $ 50,-- for shipping??? This is crazy... There certainly IS something wrong with shipping costs!!!
Is solo mode still coming? When I backed it was on the basis of a solo ruleset having been added, I'm pretty positive this was a stretch goal, but now I see no mention of it on the main page.
RE: PM Close date - there is no set date at this time. It will be open for at least 30 days. Once we get closer to a finalization, we will announce it in an update.
@Max - each Deluxe game is sent separately with multiple layers of packaging to make sure they arrive undamaged. This is why each one has its own shipping cost.
I found the stickers and, as a warm-up, put them on the fridge using cold transfer.
(I promise to stop at this point. Three comments is enough.)
If i want 2 copies of deluxified gentes... it adds twice the shipping cost? no discount on that? How can you explain that?
Now, if i add a not deluxified copy it doesnt charge me any additional shipping... guys, please check the pledge manager because something is wrong
I am also willing to iron them by myself if that helps to bring down the productions costs by x!
In the meantime, I will search our home for stickers to practice. I remember our daughters had many when they were five, with lots of detail and colors.
I don't want to transfer more heat to the discussion, but wouldn't adding cardboard tiles be an option (just for the action tiles to avoid too much weight)?
@Creator: Thanks for looking into the silkscreen tiles! I know it's gonna take me forever to put the stickers on, because I'm too meticulous in that regard, but I understand that it's because the printing isn't monetarily feasible. Also, thanks for including extra stickers! We're still really excited about getting our Deluxified Gentes!
Would it be possible to make a vote regarding stickers or silkscreen with less colors?
+1 on remove some color and make them silkscreen than use stickers :)
Seconding the PM closes date.
When does PM close
Could be avoidable stickered by a design otherwise Gentes...
We have only 28 action tiles... are only 6 diferent color token...
The color makes diference.
For example the 9 tiles "CHRONICLER" are yellow,
only are diferent in the *number* inside the circle indicates the cost in coins,
you dont have to print the icon on the tile... could be cheaper printing without icon...
Also the icon is going to print at tableboard...
i just think different to make posible NO STICKERED by small design changes
I really would like to buy "Amon-Re" but $90 shipping costs for only one game are far too high. This is totally unacceptable for me.
Epicviking the problem is simple. The spanish editor tell us we have to chose the multilingual pledge and now in the last update the original editors says we have to chose the english pledge. Well now we chose the multilingual and we can't change the pledge, so we want to now if are going to include the spanish rulebook to us
I believe the problem was mentioning the heat transfer option before it was a done deal. Unmet expectation, even if the expectation only came from a implied source, leads to disappointment. You should have sat on the heat transfer information until it was a go.
Now I also get confused. What is the difference between English and Multilingual edition? In "update 13" it is written that if you want a Spanish rule book then you should select English version.
@Lance Myxter I have the same problem than @rmnmon and @Jose. Maldito Games said us during the campaign that we needed to choose the multilingual edition and now the pledge manager doesn't allow to change from multilingual to English. How can we do the change? So the question is no answered in the update #13
I hope thats truth
Maldito answer in facebook to another backer and says all the games send to spain are included the rulebook in spanish.
I can deal with 28 square stickers...especially after realizing that the components I originally thought I would have to sticker are all silkscreened. Thanks for the heads up!
I’d also like to commend Lance and TMG for a great campaign and great communication. I am very pleased with how this was run, and who knows, maybe we will see a future Kickstarter of heat transferred tiles by themselves.
I complete the survey and send email to crowd to resolve changing multilingüal to spanish
Try to solve deluxe sticker issue, maybe clubes diferent color
@Lance Myxter The update says "Please select Gentes: Deluxified™ English edition" but Maldito Games said us during the campaign we neet to choose the muiltilingual edition and now the pledge manager doesn't allow to change from multilingual to English. How can we do the change? So the question is no answered
@Rhindon - Add-ons are planned to be shipped within a month's time.
@Jose and @rmnmom - please read update #13. This question is directly answered with our FAQ in that update.
@Lance Myxter: The update states that the add-on games will be shipped separately. Do you know when you are planning to ship them?
@ TMG/SethJaffee/Lance - Looking at the color simplicity on these action tiles... the colors are mute and similar I think you could easily silkscreen these tiles and you wouldn't even need stickers. I really hate stickers on gaming components!
I would also be prepared to pay extra to get everything in silkscreen
I thought the whole Gentes campaign was very smoothly run. The upfront deluxe edition without the need for stretch goal targets to be met suits the aim of a premium product.
The sticker debate does seem to be a recurrent theme and rather predictable. Would it be possible to explore the different options before launching a campaign?
I agree that the addon postage is prohibitively expensive.
I look forward to the fulfilment.
I agree with Justin! I will happily pay more to get the action tiles heat transferred!
I can't change the selection in the pledge manager. As Jose Ramon says the Maldito says when join the campain the spanish backers who wants the spanish rulebook, we have to select the multilingual pledge. And now is not possible to change the selection to the english version in the pledge manager (or i can't found it).
