      I received my game, but not all the required playing pieces. Anyone else in the same situation? I've written to Raj three times now, but no resolution. Advice?

      For those that used Tynker, which apps / courses were enabled for you? Does it matter whether you use the browser version versus the Android or iOS native app?

      Gave it to my 6yo for Christmas and she loves it, amazing to find something that still holds her interest months later, so well done on creating something so super.

      I have never received my copy. :( How can I get my copy of Code Monkey Island?

    8. Timothy Wong on December 25, 2014

      Can I get an email about the monkey king. That I still never heard anything about. I paid for the monkey king and thank you now I gotta give it for Xmas with missing parts.

    9. Timothy Wong on December 12, 2014

      Hey I don't think you guys ship me my monkey king pieces. I ordered the 100 package. I was planning to give my friends family , who has a lot of little kids.

      You have some rule questions on for your game.

      Played this a couple times now. It has been fun. May want to be a bit more explicit on some things for future editions. ie we had to use to deduce that if you have no play you there for play a card that does not move you and draw another card. Also some cards explicitly state move forward while other simply state move. We use an assumption that all movement had to be forward unless explicitly stated as backward, but it would be good to make it strict.

      Thanks for making this! We finally got to play this afternoon and had a blast.
      We did have one rule question. If a player has no cards that can be played, what should be done? We house-ruled it on the fly to just draw until you find a playable card, but I was wondering if there was an official ruling.

      Just got my copy. Amazed by the quality, it's super deluxe. Thank you!
      I love the mini game, it's very simple while hard to master and has a great balance of luck and decision making. It's hard to find good mini games so I'm very happy that I've discovered Super Fruits Mini Game!
      Question regarding the mini game rules: is moving one card from my register to opponent's register a valid action?
      Another question: is moving one card from discard stack to my register a valid action?
      If answer to these question is "NO", then please explain why if possible, because I find it theoretically and practically possible to move bytes between registers CPU-wise (assuming that discard stack is just another allocated memory) and wonder why exactly it wouldn't be possible in the game. Thank you!

      @Kate, instructions for the Super Fruits Mini Game are online here: - sorry for the confusion!

      Woot! Game arrived today (Mon) in Australia. Will give it a go with the kids this weekend. Thanks so much!

    18. Kate Fractal on November 9, 2014

      My copy didn't come with rules for the Super Fruits Mini Game. Does anyone know how to play that?

    19. Pedro-Juan Ferrer on November 7, 2014

      Hey! Got mine today, arrived to Valencia, Spain.

      Played a game by myself and love it! (understanding that it's for children, it's not the kind of games I usually play)

      Willing to play it with my nephew and his friends!

      Congrats Raj!

      Got mine today. The game seems very well thought out... it's like Sorry! (move pieces around the board) combined with the surprise factor of Uno... cards are easy to understand (along the lines of "for each [piece] on a rock, move 3 spaces")... *love* that cards can impact ALL players (ALL pieces on a rock), so consider opponents for the good stuff, and yourself for the bad stuff!

      The guide includes both the game instructions, and a (rather detailed) explanation of how the cards represent code. Some concepts are obvious (foreach, conditions, etc) while others are more subtle (variables).

      All in all, quite glad I funded. I hope the game does very well.

    21. Andrew Erlick on November 3, 2014

      Wow, got mine today and couldn't be more thrilled with how it turned out! The detail of the packaging, the game pieces, etc. is impressive. Congratulations to you Raj.

      Hi Raj. Any update on shipping ? What if we need to change the address for delivery ? What do you advise?

    29. Raj Sidhu Creator on August 15, 2014

      Hi David,

      Thanks for reaching out! Production is on track to wrap up at the end of this month, and we expect shipping to backers to begin by the middle of the first week of September. Can't wait!

    30. David Anderson on August 15, 2014

      Any updates? Is there a target shipping date? Thanks for your time.

    31. Raj Sidhu Creator on July 22, 2014

      Hi Jennifer!

      The project is going wonderfully - please accept my apologies for the time since our last update! We've got a big one coming at the end of this week with a ton of news and goodness. Stay tuned!

    32. Jennifer Angell on July 22, 2014

      Raj, how is the project going? My kids are uber excited about the game! Any updates that I can pass along to them would be appreciated.

      Congratulations on making your goal and more. Looking forward to the game!

    34. Gerli Jõgeva on June 6, 2014

      The language is Estonian. :) Estonians will likely form a rather small demographic of your game so I wouldn't expect you to translate/release it in that language.

    35. Alba Martínez on June 5, 2014

      Congratulations for this awesome project Raj! I'm from Barcelona and I really think children lack knowledge of logic... Scratch is one great way to teach them but your game includes the family in the learning process and that's key :)

      But according to @Gerli English can be an issue for the kids... so I would be glad to help with future translations if you're thinking about that.

    36. Raj Sidhu Creator on June 5, 2014

      @Kevin - can't wait to send you guys your copy! Thanks for supporting : )

      @Fiona - I think @Marwan was asking whether the cards would fit inside of collectible card sleeves (like these ones, and whether they could all still fit in the box afterwards. Hope this is clearer now!

    37. Fiona on June 5, 2014

      What does 'sleeved cards' mean? Do you laminate them?

    38. Kevin Lufkin on June 5, 2014

      Great project Raj! Looking forward to playing it with my little brother and sister!

    39. Raj Sidhu Creator on May 30, 2014

      Hey @Gerli, thanks for the question! We're not planning on releasing a digital version at the moment, but we're definitely hoping to release the game in a few different languages as soon as we can. What language were you hoping to see the game in?

    40. Gerli Jõgeva on May 30, 2014

      I'm also interested in whether there will be a download of the files available. More specifically, is it possible to make available a version that can be edited (translated)? My first language is not English and any kids I would like to play it with would not be comfortable with the game being in English. I would be willing to translate and print it myself, though.

      Great idea! It's a nice complement to LightBot and RoboRally.

    41. Marwan Marwan on May 20, 2014

      @Raj: Thanks <3

    42. Pedro Markun on May 20, 2014

      Will the files be released in an open license? :)

    43. Raj Sidhu Creator on May 19, 2014

      @Marwan, both sets of cards can be sleeved and will still fit in the box! Great question.

    44. Marwan Marwan on May 19, 2014

      @Raj: Will both games accommodate sleeved cards?

      I sleeve all my cards, and since this is a game that will be played by both kids and adults, it would be great to allow for extra room in both boxes for sleeved cards.

      Let me know what you think.

    45. Raj Sidhu Creator on May 18, 2014

      Great question, Tiago - I'm adding our first stretch goal tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back! It's going to be a fun one : )

    46. Tiago Oliveira Miranda on May 18, 2014

      Thanks Raj, I'll do that. Are u planing any stretch goals? That's kinda usual in kickstarter, but I haven't seen it here in your game. Thanks again.

    47. Raj Sidhu Creator on May 18, 2014

      Hi Tiago -

      Thanks for the question! If you pledge $80 + the appropriate shipping, I'll be sure to get two copies of the game to you! Feel free to message me if you have any more questions!

    48. Tiago Oliveira Miranda on May 18, 2014

      How can I get two copies? Thanks!

    49. Raj Sidhu Creator on May 14, 2014

      @Math For Love, Ginger, and GeekGoddess, thank you so much for the kind words! Really looking forward to sending you guys your copies!

    50. Math For Love on May 14, 2014

      Congratulations! We've been looking forward to seeing Code Monkey Island fund. Looking forward to playing the game.
