$86,000... Wow... +2000% funded... I tried not to have expectations. I was going to be thrilled just to fund and make my game. But this has been amazing with over 4 times the amount of backers of any of my previous games. I am astounded and humbled by the response. With this new level, we have reach we get to add in more art that enhances the look of temples and housing as they upgrade in the game. This will give even more fo a feeling of accomplishment as you invest in these buildings. I will share the new art as soon as it is completed.  

Up Next  

At the $100,000 we will be upgrading the shipping to distribution centers to air freight which will knock about 23 days off the delivery time of most shipments.  

Translations  

We have been working on many translations of the rulebook. The Thai and Spanish version are already done and will be up on BGG soon. We have much more coming as well. Soon we will have the finalized rulebook for you to look at. Our proofreaders have been pouring over it but the more eyes the better. I will share that later this week.  

Schedule  

I am still working out the details of the boxes and single deck sleeve with the manufacturer. Lesson learned: Steer clear of quoting and manufacturing around Chinese New Year. It also has a bit to do with leaving late stretch goal plans as loose pre-campaign. Next time I will need to plan to my wildest dreams and beyond. With the campaign wrapping up we are looking to move into proofing production very soon. Once the final quote is approved I will get the white boxes for approval. I am putting the final touches on some things and will get the new art in and we will send it out for initial full-color proofs. Once we are all set with that we will be moving into the waiting game through production and shipping but we are very much on schedule and may be ahead of schedule if the last stretch goal drops before 2 pm EST tomorrow.  

BackerKit  

Once the campaign closes we must wait for all pledges to be confirmed and paid through Kickstarter before moving over to BackerKit. This is planned for March 21st. Once this is open you will be able to manage your pledge and clearly select add-ons and add funds if needed. By this time we will have all of the details on the option for packaging so that you may select your box and card type that best fits your situation.

Thank you all so much for your support,

      Does each deck have the capability of having 2 solo decks?

      Definitely need star wars / star trek versions! After all wouldn't you like to build the death star instead of a temple? or how about a starship or even a bog cube?

      @Greg Reader : I look at my Dominion collection, and disagree. I can't hold every thing in my hand :D

      More like a Zombicide, with different themes on the global same concept. Like on this thread : https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1954427/heres-why-im-excited

      Every morning, you'll choose which palm game you'll take for the day, as you choose your clothes :D
      "Hmmm, I don't know, will I take the sci-fi today, or the dinosaurs?" :D

      Great campaign. I agree with others that this looks like a game that would work well with expansions - a pocket Dominion of sorts.
