October Update

Posted by Mike Gnade (Creator)

Production Schedule

Unfortunately, I have to start by sharing some bad news.  I heard from the factory that production will not be completed until Oct 25th-31st.  It's not a huge delay but it is news. I did get a finished sample of everything and the good news is that it is so much nicer than the pre-production sample. I also prepaid for all the fulfillment/shipping so all of that coordination is underway and going smoothly.

  • October 30th 2017: Mass Production Completed 
  • November 1st: Brass Empire: New Canton Kickstarter! 
  • November - December 2017: Freight Shipping (estimated) 
  • November 17th-19th 2017: Pax Unplugged #1 in Philly! 
  • December 2017 - January 2018: Fulfillment! 
  • First Quarter 2018 - Everyone has their games / Retail Release 

Even with the delay, I still expect that everyone will be getting their games in the first quarter of 2018, but will keep everyone in the loop.

Brass Empire: New Canton

Launching on Kickstarter November 1st!
Launching on Kickstarter November 1st!


Brass Empire: New Canton is finally coming to Kickstarter.  This expansion focuses on 5 different characters in an epic story of greed, corruption, love and tragedy. It tells a story through it's 12+ hour campaign. Like other campaign and legacy games, you will be changing the rules, unlocking cards, customizing decks and progressing through a unique character's story between every match. You will never destroy any components and can enjoy playing the campaign again and again from different characters' perspectives (though there will be less surprises on subsequent campaigns). When the campaign is over, all of the new cards and game mechanics that you have unlocked can be added to the original Brass Empire like a traditional card game expansion.

Maximum Apocalypse Teasers:

I know that you guys haven't even played Maximum Apocalypse yet, but my hope is that you will all be on the ground floor for an epic and ongoing series.  As always keep in mind that these things are works in progress, but as a small indie publisher, we can't help but share and tease what we're working on:


We look forward to (and rely on) your continued support!  Thanks so much and stay tuned for more!

      Thanks for the shipping update! I’m sure this will all be worth the wait.

      Looks like I’ll be skipping the expansion KS as I’m still waiting for the base game I haven’t played yet. Good luck!

      And hi, René!

      Thanks for the truth in the update. Have to wait a little longer but I will succeed - just barely ;)
      And what news from Set a Watch?

      Delays happen. Especially on kickstarter. It's how they are communicated that counts, and you did fine there ;)

    5. Olly - Please Expect KS Delays.

      @ creator - given that I thought the game was arriving in May 2018. I am thinking that Jan 2018 is pretty sweet!

      Ideal for the post-Xmas blues

      Werewolves are always so angry. Must play havoc with their blood pressure.
