      I backed this game because I LOVE the wooden turnips, Then I watched the gameplay and the idea is so simple but quite entertaining. I hope we can unlock metal chicken coin :D

    2. Jellybean Games Collaborator about 2 hours ago

      @Teresa - We’d love to include the metal chicken coin as an add-on! The complication is that we have to commit to a minimum with our printer (usually 1,000), even if only 10 backers decide they want add it to their order. We always try to make sure our backers are getting the best value at the best possible price before we launch. Calculating new additions into the equation during the campaign is a tricky balance but we love the idea and we’re working hard to make it happen :)

      +1@Scott C: Having the chicken metal coin as an add-on would help us reach those SGs faster. ; )

      For anyone interested in the add-ons, I highly recommend The Lady and The Tiger. A gorgeous set of tarot-sized cards you can use to play many different games.

      Hello,
      I still wait a response to my message (in the ks message-box) about grouped pledge. Could you please give me a response ?

    6. BryTheBeav about 18 hours ago

      That makes sense. It's probably a variant a group could implement themselves too. Looking forward to it.

      @Scott: That's a great idea! I think the upfront mold cost is going to be too high, but we'll look into it.

      In the meantime, your best bet is to let your friends know about the campaign! The more support, the closer we'll get to metal chicken coin. ;)

      @BryTheBeav: We've looked into it, but one of the big draws of this game is how simple it is to teach. You'll see it in every review - this game literally takes about 3 minutes from "box open" to "end of first round", simply because the rules are so streamlined. We don't want to do anything that complicates that.

      The interaction with your non-neighbors is subtle, but it's definitely there! Negotiating treaties with your neighbor so they can attack THEIR neighbor is an important part of larger games.

    8. BryTheBeav about 19 hours ago

      Has there been any thought, or some sort of play testing around some mechanic that allows who your neighbor is to rotate? The biggest problem I have with games like this is that in a 5 player game, you don't end up interacting with 40% of the table. I'm wondering if something like every player having two markers and they put them in front of their true neighbors at the beginning of the game and at the end of each hand, you flip the chicken (lol) to see if those markers move clockwise or counter-clockwise? Then those two people are your neighbors for the next hand. It seems like it might work and would mix up who you're interacting with from hand to hand.

      @JB games - for the metal chicken coin can it be an add-on if we don't reach it's SG (assuming it is added as a SG)? We really NEED that metal chicken coin!!!

    10. Jellybean Games Collaborator about 23 hours ago

      @Jack - Great question! The game has been fully designed, developed, playtested and the art is complete. In that respect, it's absolutely ready to be submitted to the printer! However, in order to keep this project open to stretch goals, we needed to estimate enough time to factor the additions into the manufacturing process before we even launched. For example, we're working with our manufacturer now to include a metal chicken coin as a future stretch goal, which we hadn't even dreamed of before it was requested by our amazing Kickstarter backers! Things like this will need a bit of time to implement into the manufacturing plans. Submitting to the printer can take a month or two, between finalizing the files, receiving and reviewing samples, and making any necessary changes to ensure the final production is exactly right. From there, the actual production process takes about 60 days, and we estimate another 60 days to freight all the units from our printer in China to our fulfillment center in the United States.

      With that said, we have every intention on delivering early, but we list April 2019 because delays can happen in manufacturing and we don't want to promise a date without being sure we can meet or beat it! :)

      Delivery time says April 2019.. I assume this is not correct as you said it just needs to be sent to the printers... ?

      Gotta say, glad to see the 6-player on the list, even if it doesn't have a target number yet. It might be difficult getting that armor for the chicken, though.

      @John Good spot on the play count! The rulebook will be subject to some changes depending on the kickstarter (if we unlock certain stretch goals etc). So it's not set in stone yet. Stone is crazy expensive to ship.

      I'll be sure to delete any mentions of rutabaga before we go to print. Don't know how that one snuck in there :p

      Thanks for showing the game, and for providing the print-and-play to make it easy to test!

      I did a quick job porting the Print and Play into Tabletop Simulator - would there be any concerns with making that public and letting people use that to try the game?

    27. John Schiavo 4 days ago

      Thanks Tania, but your information sounds like team turnip propaganda.

      After further research, rutabaga is the same thing as a Swede or neep.

      All three relics are named after rutabaga.

      @John Schiavo - re your second question, the teams are just a fun Kickstarter campaign activity and have no reflection on actual gameplay. The relic nicknames are also just chosen for fun and flavour. They’re all puns on root vegetables; ‘Neep’ is the Scottish term for ‘turnip’, for instance. :)

    29. John Schiavo 4 days ago

      Two notes from perusing the rulebook:

      1) The gameplay section still says 3-6 players. (I'd rather see the sixth player than 'fixing' the rulebook.)

      2) One of the required relics to win the game is "The Crown of Rutabaga." #teamrutabaga

    33. Jellybean Games Collaborator 5 days ago

      @Justin - You can absolutely combine two copies together! The main difference between a 5-player game and a 10-player game is that you wouldn't be able to affect players across the table (but you could try to convince their neighbors!). If you'd like to try a 10-player game with the free print & play, please let us know what you think!

      i agree w Justin. i hope we really get the 6 player SG soon.. this seems pretty stagnant now. ): anyway 25k SG unlocked. not that i can do with a better box. i would really prefer more card variety for replayability. that i believe is what most backers want. make the game more fun!

      *I meant 6th player SG not add-on.

      @Creator - any news about wooden turnip, metal chicken coin, or wooden relic token add-ons? We really could use them now to help boost funding to hit more SG's.

      Hopefully the 6 player add-on is coming soon. With this SG spacing and our funding pace we may not get too many more.

    45. Justin Hooper 5 days ago

      So, if this is a fast-paced SOCIAL game why is it for only 5 players?! Surely this could easily be sold as a 6+ player game. Has this been play tested at 10 players (combining 2 games)?
