Have a question?
Could you close the two open agreeements, and we will receive the pledge Manager soon?
Anyway, I'd like to see how work is ongoing, any news about status of development? :)
Any chance of seeing some of the models used in the app? A ship or two perhaps? A view of land?
@ Phalanx So what are you up to while waiting for the logistics data? Just keen to hear about the progress.
Any chance you guys will make it to GenCon this year?
We are waiting for logistic data from last two language partners and we will be able to open the pledge manager. We hope it will be live next week! :)
From update 23
"According to our current estimations, we should be able to launch the pledge manager in the first half of May"
So where are we right now? Is the pm around the corner or can we expect more delays?
Hey all, we have a KS board game Discord with a really great community. All sorts of chatter about many KS games with people who spend entirely too much money backing KS games. If you can relate...or want to relate, come join us! Everybody is welcome. https://discord.gg/f2B69uK
Cheers Rob ,
@Matt, no, you haven't missed the pledge manager release. :)
Last I heard they are filling shipping costs with their partners.
It takes a little while, dealing with eight different language editions.
*news (darn auto correct) :)
Hi all , any newspaper on the pledge manager yet ?
Just want to check in case I’ve missed it being released etc.
In regards to the "Wolfe" kickstarter, and the U-69 crew add-on that's compatible with this game, in what manner would those pieces be used? I was contemplating backing that project at the add-on level, to just get the 1/72 scaled crew members, but without trying to sound redundant, I'm not sure what they'd be used for. Can anyone clear this up for me please?
@Rob. Yes, I have Nemo's war in my collection. It's a fantastic strategic experience that I can't recommend highly enough. Something more tactical like UBOOT though would be a great companion.
@Slyde, you sir, are a genius! :))
@Dan, you know about Nemos War, yes? (it's a solo game. An excellent solo game)
While we're on the subject of variants, a 20,000 leagues under the sea re-skin of this game would be awesome. I can imagine piloting the Nautilus around sinking steam ships and discovering underwater secrets.
i just thought of this, compeltely on my own, without anyone's input....
has anyone ever considered TANKS?
Whoops. Moreso *THAN* for U-boats.
Tanks sounds interesting - similar kind of environment in some ways, though I'm not sure there's enough for three or four players to do unless they're in separate tanks. Good, I'd *love* to see a fleet boat version. There's a lot of material online for how they operated, moreso (at least that I've been able to find) for U-boats. And for bonus points, us English speakers would be speaking the correct language :) (And it'd be the perfect excuse for someone to produce some really good replica Is-Was calculators.)
If we're looking for ideas for new games along this line, PT boats might be made to work. Small crew, not so much of a Black Box sort of feel, but very much speed, stealth, and skill versus overwhelming firepower.
And TANKS! Don't forget TANKS! ;)
Dont forget destroyers and battleships
@Camithril, during the campaign there was talk of a few different ideas for future games.
Yes, your idea was one of them, along with TANKS, a bomber game, TANKS, and a few others.
ps- I like TANKS! :))
@Jeremy, yes, you will be able to get the all-in in the pledge manager. :))
Is there any thought about a future version or expansion or something for US fleet boats in the Pacific? Most of the mechanics would be similar, a little different flavor.
If this has been asked and answered before, I apologize - 5400 comments is a lot to sort through.
Just checking my order and find that I am in the UBoot pledge camp and not the UBoot all in pledge despite uping my pledge to £110 during the campaign, will I be able to get the all in pledge?
oops sorry wrong ks
bravo les gars vos fichiers pdf sont supers : clairs et bienvenus! Grand merci !
I completely agree with Rob.Nothing else to add.Great game.
@My fellow members of the Kriegsmarine,
I have been lucky enough to recently get my hands on a copy of Phalanx's previous title Hannibal & Hamilcar. Production wise it is up with the very best games I have owned or played. (we've only played once so far, it was great. We'll be playing more on the weekend).
After more than 3 months Gloomhaven has finally left the table for a while.
Truly it is that good! Such a beautiful game. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who has even the slightest interest in the subject matter (or wishes to learn more about it), to add Hannibal & Hamilcar to your Pledge manager, or try and source it online or from your game store.
The future of Uboot is in fantastic safe hands, the best, I assure you.
Thank you so much Phalanx for this masterpiece of a game.
I look forward to Uboot and your future projects. :))
Hey all, we have Discord for KS games. It's a solid group of gamers talking KS games and we have a channel for UBOOT too. Come join us and talk games! https://discord.gg/f2B69uK
Hi, Rob. Thanks for sharing our link in this comments section.
We are very happy with the start of our campaign and we believe that it is a very interesting project for all the bakers of this one.
In our book you can find great step by step painting processes of figures like the ones in the game and all the history of the German Uboat in the Battle of the Atlantic. Also it can be an interesting reading complement to enhance the game ;). Even one of the add-ons is a fully compatible with the game crew and can complement the great figures we have already achieved here.
Thanks again for sharing the link and everyone who wants to visit us will be welcome. Greetings to all.
I thought some of you die-hards might be interested in this-
Again perfect update!!!thx
@Andres, En unas semenas, elegirá su idioma en el administrador de promesas. :))
@Cristhian, yes, in a few weeks. :)
Hi, will be a plage manager for people who wants adquire more items of this KS?
Buenas noches. Habeis sacado un comunicado de los idiomas posibles del juego, pero no he podido seleccionar el que quiero. Lo habeis preguntado ya y no me enteré?
As usual, a very interesting and promising update. Thanks. Your information teasers make this game a "must have". Great stuff!
Looks amazing. This is gonna be awesome!
ignore my question - I saw the earlier message :)
What's the latest on the pledge manager?
I noticed the computer game has changed name on Steam to UBOAT. Please don't follow suit.
Ah ... I didn't notice the base pledge had a different date. In that case, the All-In pledge might more likely be Feb 2019, which would explain the typo. Thanks for pointing that out.
Are we still looking good for December?
@ phalanx i guess chinese right?
I believe it's December 2018 like the base pledge.
I was looking over my list of KickStarters, and I noticed that this one had an estimated delivery of Feb 2018, which I know must've been a typo because that was when the backing was going on. I may have missed them, but I haven't noticed any estimated delivery dates. Do we have a ballpark date?
@Ian Avery - good stuff. Thanks for letting us know!
