Dear backer,

We are proud to announce that as of this month, ATT is 10 years old ( since conception). And as a celebration of a jungle-filled childhood, Pleasant Company Games is running a short Kickstarter campaign for backers new and old:

As a backer on the 2nd edition Kickstarter, the new campaign offers you a chance to pick-up the latest mini-expansion for the game, Madness of McGuffin, as well as a new promo card, Unnatural Mystic. Additionally, each day of the remaining 10 days in the campaign, will include an a visual retrospective of the 10 years in the life of ATT.

Look forward to seeing you on board the riverboat for another journey into madness.

Dear Backer,

On Tuesday 25 April 2017, at 5pm EST, we will be launching our latest tabletop game, Konja, on Kickstarter.com.

Konja, is a 2-player dice game of Shamans, Juju and Magick, featuring core elements of the DiceQuest game system, as used in Ancient Terrible Things (ATT).

The designer of ATT, Simon McGregor has been tirelessly refining and reworking the Dicequest game system over the past several months and we are excited to introduce this latest streamlined 2-player iteration. The artwork and writing has once again been produced by myself, Rob van Zyl, and I look forward to presenting some new exotic imagery inspired by Afro-mysticism. Additionally the campaign will be a living project, with final artwork being created during the campaign with first look reserved for backers.

As a backer and fan of our previous Kickstarter tabletop game projects, we wish to announce this Kickstarter to you first. The campaign will run for 30 days, and will feature early bird discounts for those who get onboard at launch, as well as exciting content upgrades and stretch goals, should we surpass the initial finding goal.

I look forward to seeing you all on Kickstarter this Tuesday - at the close of business in the US, at bedtime in Cape Town, and dawn in the East.

To two restless excited sleeps,

Robert van Zyl

Dear backers of Ancient Terrible Things,

I am excited to announce the launch of the new tabletop game from Pleasant Company Games, entitled, Snowblind - Race for the Pole.

It has been an intense 6 months of finalization of the game design and an overall 24 months of game gestation, and we are now deep into final play-testing. I am thrilled that the game we set out to make is now near completion, and achieves a sweeping, desperate, epic narrative, while keeping the game play simple and easy to learn.

This update serves as a save-the-date invite for our next Kickstarter at the end of March 2016. Grab your snow-shoes and your hauling gear, and help us to complete the race to the South Pole and back!

To new worlds, and to seeing you on the 29th March 2016, 1500 EST, on Kickstarter.com

regards,

Robert van Zyl

Hello backers,

We have received confirmation that all packages have now been shipped from the warehouses to our EU, US and rest-of-world backers. 

For those who have not received a shipping notice as yet, please check your spam/junk mail folder in your email client, as the shipping notice can often end up in there.

For those few in far flung places ( mainly the outer areas of Europe and the some distant rest of the world spots), who are still waiting, please give it another few weeks to clear various ports and post offices. If, after that time, your package has not materialised, please contact help@shipnaked.com, and they will follow up on your errant pledge.

For those who have now received their packages, we would love to hear your opinions, reviews and ratings. Please head over to our game page on boardgamegeek.com, and leave a comment and a rating. Any questions you may have around the game or expansion can be answered on that forum, as well.

Our next project, Snowblind, will be coming to Kickstarter in the March 2016, and we hope to see you all on board for the next (snowy) chapter from Pleasant Company Games.

Lastly, we wish all of you, a wonderful festive season with friends and family, and hope that the world of ATT will feature most prominently.

All the best and happy holidays,

Robert van Zyl
