Well that was a crazy final day, featured on the Stonemaier blog, and then loved by Kickstarter! It all topped off an amazing campaign in which my modest expectations were blown completely out the water. Thanks to every backer for making this actually happen, every person who shared information about Forks, and every reviewer, blogger and podcaster who gave me a chance.

Within the next two days the rewards surveys will come out, then all you need to do is wait for Forks to arrive. I’ll keep everyone updated until then, and if there are any questions just send me a message.

Thanks, Mark Radical 8 Games

Final 48 hours

Thank you everybody who's supported this project, we've come a hell of a way and are almost 1000% (!) funded, which is utterly ridiculous yet true. It's the final straight now, so if there is anybody who you think would appreciate a deviously good small box card game let them know before Tuesday. We won't have a pledge manager to allow late pledges, so if you are on the fence please don't rely on one! Finally, thank you to everyone who came to see me at the UKGE, some of whom had already backed, some of whom backed after.

Thanks, Mark

2 Weeks in...

And the last Stretch Goal has been met! Fantastic work, thank you to everybody who backed or shared this project. Last update I was talking about a further Stretch Goal I was thinking of, which would have been some more goals in the Scenario, but when I was designing it those cards felt like they belonged in there, and it didn't feel right to break it into piecemeal chunks for no good reason. Therefore rather than chuck those extra cards in as a funding drive I'm just going to include them anyway. It's a little more expensive, but only fractionally, and if the campaign continues the way it's going it won't matter anyway!

This also means you can also relax. Whilst I'd still love it if you shared this campaign with anybody who seems interested- FB groups, Twitter, forums etc- I'm not going to withold anything to force you to. Feel free to just sit back knowing the game you'll be recieving is the most complete version there is.

As for us, we'll have a mini-relax, but then straight back on with trying to inform everyone about Forks. We've had some more previews from Boards Eye View, Winter Moon Games, and Gaming Knights which we've added to the campaign page, and coming up over the weekend it's the UKGE. Now, I love the UKGE, been going since it was in the Clarendon Suites, so I can't wait for this year. We won't be having a stand of our own, so instead I'll be on the Shut Up and Sit Down stand. So please come and say Hi and you can also ask the SUASD folk what they think of the game, or if you played it at Airecon just tell them you love it instead. I will genuinely be overjoyed at anybody who backed the game coming along to say Hello. And if you're interested but haven't backed yet I'll lend you a prototype copy to see how you feel (note- it would be a prototype copy, with some scrawlings over areas we've changed the rules and a typo).

Here's to a great final two weeks,

Mark

Amazing first week & what's coming up

What a first week. I know it's not even been a full week, but this is the first time I feel I can catch my breath since the Kickstarter started. It's been an incredible 5 days, we've smashed through two stretch goals and steaming towards what I considered to be an incredibly ambitious 3rd stretch goal. If it's met before the UKGE I'll add a 4th (and possibly 5th) stretch goal to keep things exciting. I've got some ideas, so keep an eye out to see if we meet it!

Those of us who follow or back Kickstarters know there's usually a bit of a lull after the initial couple of days until the final day, so I want to keep you informed of what we're doing here to try and alleviate that. We've got video and written reviews which will be released over the next couple of weeks. Hopefully staggered, but that will depend upon the reviewers themselves. Additionally we've got podcast interviews that should be released soon. And finally we've got plans for the UKGE. Fun plans.

I'll leave you with a run through of Forks which was recently released by Boardgames With Niramas, note this was a run through of the prototype so some cards and the box have changed, but you can clearly see the mechanics and evolving strategy. Thanks for reading (and expecially thanks for backing)!

What a first day

Thanks everybody, this has been an exhausting day, but my word a successful one. We have managed to fund, get almost 100 backers and reach the first two stretch goals all within 20 hours! I'm incredibly grateful to everybody who's decided to back, whether you've played it before or just taken a chance on it, thank you. 

Finally, there's a link on the campaign page, but The Game Shelf have just publicised their preview of Forks, and it's a really nice piece. If you haven't checked out their reviews and previews catch them here http://thegameshelf.blogspot.com/
