Unlocked Promos and the first bit of Welsh

Ladies and Gentlemen!

It's a wonderful Saturday here at the mobile NSKN HQ! The sun is shining, a soft wind brings a bit of relief from the surprisingly scorching Polish summer, and we are continuously in awe of how far Snowdonia Deluxe Master Set has gone! Thank you!

It's a great time to give you some info you've been asking about, and for all of us to learn a little something. In the spirit of mixing it up, let's start with the latter:

The above is the first of our Welsh lessons. While we won't have time to learn enough Welsh to become pros, we can definitely sound like pros around the gaming table. Those first phrases we learn should prove pretty essential to any game of Snowdonia

As always, if you want to help us spread the glory of Snowdonia Deluxe Master Set, share the video with anyone interested in great strategic gaming with a great, palatable theme!

And now let's get down to the two Stretch Goals we've already unlocked. Here is a quick breakdown of what both volumes of No Print, Just Playinclude:

  • Just Play #1 comes packed with professionally printed versions of: Princess Margaret Rose, The Bought At Auction Loco, No. 11 Prototype Engine, The Breakdown Crane, The Utility Loco, Santa's Sleigh, Krampus, The Camoflaged Loco.
  • And Just Play #2 continues with: The Great Old One, The Coal Train, The Downbound Train, Sen's Train, The Scarecrow, The Falkland Island Express, The Birthday Train, Terraforming Engine.

By now you have probably figured out that we have yet another No Print, Just Play Stretch Goal up our sleeve. Care to guess what it will include?

If you've done some guessing (or some research), you probably know that not all of the upcoming Trains are exactly family friendly. To tell the truth, chances are that we will make small changes to their names. While we don't want to ruin the original feel of the promos, we know that many of you play your games with young ones (as we do), so we hope you'll forgive us some small alterations.

And speaking of alterations: yes, the Luggage and Time-travelling Police Box will have to change as well, for reasons that are (hopefully) obvious. We do promise to make them pretty cool nonetheless - and adorn them with some new, specially comissioned pieces of nice art.

We hope your weekend is great! Go and play some awesome games, and have fun!

      @NSKN so no blurring or blank areas where words have been removed? 🤞🏼

      As I mentioned earlier, I was looking for a list of promos that MIGHT not be in the game..not the complete list of promos. Thus which ones are most likely NOT coming with the game please!

      @Justin Boehm - We confirm: No censoring from our side :)

      @NSKN I hope you leave them *exactly* as they have been, without any censoring!

      Thank you for coming around and letting the originals be in the game

      Since I never got the first edition nor any of it's promos, can you please inform the uninformed (which are maybe a few..at least me) why they might need to be renamed or redone.

      And I am an adult and usually play with other adults and/or teen adults.

      Sure hate to see cards changed due to some people objecting. Could there be maybe 2 sets...originial and family friendly..or if not, do a poll and see how people would vote.

      But again, one needs to be in the know (which I am NOT in) on these promos.

      Lastly, since the list of promos is getting large, maybe at KS end, include a list of promos NOT included, since I didn't know this game had so many!!

      Thanks! Thomas

      Fine by me! Plenty of other content to use with my kids.

    10. NSKN Games 11-time creator on

      We can safely say that we will not produce an adult poch for two or three cards. However, with so much support for original cards, we may just leave them, and leave a warning in the rules about some adult content on two cards. Thank you for your feedback!

      Don't change the cards. Have them in an adult pouch like dead of winter does. Peoples kids don't need promos.

      People love profanity for some reason..I don’t get it.

      Not happy about the card changes. If someone is offended by a card they can choose not to play it.

      Also, is there a place we can see these promos that were previously PNP only?

    15. Justin Boehm

      @Paulo I agree, the option of the originals at minimal cost (or no cost preferably) should be offered

      @NSKN also, @Trevor has a better idea, just provide each type to all backers, since they are the same effects, anyone who doesn't like the originals can just not use them...

      @NSKN I too would like the option to add on the original promos cards without changes :)

      An add-on for the profane cards?

      I suspect that having "clean" versions of cards is also essential for game rating reasons. If "mature audience only" cards are included in a package it is difficult to mark it suitable for younger players.

    20. Trevor Kindree on

      If someone has to remove 2 profane promos to make it family friendly, that shouldn't be a big issue... Or is it possible to extend the set by 2 cards - keeping the original and adding the FF version?

      The cards are true to him. I'd love to see them included, and I know I'm not alone. His blog has a loyal following, he's known for being expressive, and it's disappointing to hear it being censored. Now, trademark issues, yeah, no worries, we get it. :)

      Don't know if I'm alone but I have to say that I really don't like this changes you are thinking about!

      People playing with young ones have a ton of other trains in the game to use they just have to not pick the ones they might consider not safe for children or whatever...

      Really hope that you don't "pervert" what the designer has done as part of the history of the great Snowdonia game!

      @Angela M.: Definitely, as there's going to be quiz at the end of class ;-D
      @Gretchen Ingram: Thanks!

    23. Gretchen Ingram on

      I expected those four would have to change a bit... two because Tony is profane and two because of copyrights. Sad, but necessary and I'm sure you'll make the new versions very nice- you have not disappointed me yet!

      Haha, I'll need an endless loop of those Welsh phrases, to master them before opening the Box of Master Deluxe Delight :)
