      Hey people. I hope the brexit talks aren't impacting your schedule too much. Can you please update us on the status?

    5. Lee Griffin on May 22, 2017

      Thanks for the update guys, crazy year and it must be a challenging time to start a venture like this.

      I don't want to bash down too hard because I can well imagine the whole thing is really complex and challenging to actually sort out - but we should be getting something in the way of updates.

      At a minimum, we're now past the originally suggested delivery date (the timeline shows "in your hands" between April and May, so there's something to tell us: the date's being missed, a reason for what's taken longer than planned, and a new expected date.

      Please post an update next week with at least the above information covered!

      @Murph, @Chris
      Noted. Sorry guys, we're new to this, it's our first campaign. Thanks for the advice =)

      An update with no info is better than no update...

    9. Chris Turner on April 29, 2017

      The bottom line is that since this project was funded, there have been no substantial updates. Considering that we have two copies of your former product at the Loading bar in Dalston, which suggests to me that you were pretty good to go on this, I find the lack of updates totally unacceptable. I will be very wary of funding anything you do again in future.

    10. Sam Ballard Collaborator on April 5, 2017

      Hey Guys, sorry to keep you all waiting. We're still at the stage where we're waiting for samples from the manufacturers, they've been unbelievably slow at responding. Once we have some samples, they'll be going into production straight after, but until then we're at their mercy.
      We've had an update drafted for a while now, but as this is the only part of info that could be updated, we've run out of things to say to everyone. It feels like it's just around the corner, but it's felt like that for a while. Hopefully we should have something to tell, and show, very soon.
      Thanks for being patient everyone <3

      Another month gone by without any updates. Starting to get a bit worried now.

    13. Joe Sutherland on January 19, 2017

      Hey! Congrats again. Are there any updates? It'd be fantastic to know how you're getting on with the project.

    14. Original Content London Creator on December 14, 2016

      Hi, thank you! Surprisingly long recovery period for us after the campaign ended, it really took it out of us. We've done all the supplementary artwork, and now we're waiting for some samples from manufacturers. We wanted to do an update when we had something to take pictures of, but maybe we should just go ahead and post one. Nice to hear from you!

      Hey OCL - congrats again on making the funding, and looking forward to the game! How's the first month post-Kickstarter gone?

      Thank you so much everyone! You've made it all possible!

      @Original Content - thanks!! Have just upped my pledge to include the Entourage expansion (the patches are irrestable). I've enjoyed playing so far. In our first game, we were being a little too nice to each other I think, overly welcoming on the tours, and one player whipped up a fan frenzy under our noses and won by a mile, hahahahahah. Next time, we'll just be more savvy! I'm really into the theme and artwork, and look forward to getting it back to the table soon for another round of all-in-tour-haggling... Fingers crossed that that last 10% comes flooding in in the next few hours... BEST OF LUCK!!!!

    26. Original Content London Creator on November 1, 2016

      Hi @Rachel!

      We can do you the expansions separately - pick the lowest tier and pledge £10 (NSFW), £12 (Entourage) or £20 (both), and leave a note for us about which you want. Price includes postage.

      How have you been getting on with the game? :)

    27. Rachel Dobbs on November 1, 2016

      Hi guys - I already have the base game (I bought it at UKGE, because it looked SO ACE!!). I'd really like to give you another £10 for the Entourage expansion to add to my existing game... is there any way I can do this??

    28. Original Content London Creator on October 14, 2016

      @Michael: That's the danger of being so ahead of the curve! I wouldn't worry too much - it's not a game where different card backs matter much.

    29. Michael Botterill on October 13, 2016

      I take the new branding means new card backs, which means the expansions won't be comparable with the copy I got from the UK Games Expo :-(

      @Kristian
      Thanks! Don't worry, we've become aware of this issue and are in the process of rebranding right as we speak. We should have a new brand by the end of tomorrow.

      @EIKobold
      Sure! See you there!

      Your game looks great, but it's clearly violating Dan Smith's copywrited Battle of the Bands - The Card Game. I bought my first copy of Battle of the Bands in 2013, though I believe it was first published in 2001. I trust that this is an honest mistake, but you need to re-name your game (for your own benefit too, confusion in the market is good for no one). Please do the right thing.

      How is this not going to be the best after dinner game ever?

    43. Adrian L. May on October 4, 2016

      I've had a chance to play a preview copy and I must say it's an incredibly well-designed game full of a rich narrative of your growing and struggling band that is casual enough to be played at a party or deep enough for each player to build their own persona.

    44. Joseph Mcarthur on October 4, 2016

      This game looks epic!

    45. Haplo Schaffer on October 4, 2016

      I saw one of the review copies being played earlier this year and it looked like allot of fun, a good mix of skill, tactics and chance, not to mention the graphics are really awesome! Super excited to get a copy myself and start coming up with bands to take my kazoo on tour, because everyone loves a punk kazoo band with a smoke machine right :D
