Have a question?
@Adam: We found during playtesting that a score sheet wasn’t really necessary, as each player can tally up their score quite easily.
I just had a random thought, but since there is not a score track, will we be getting a score sheet?
Really excited about both the raiders solo and architects.
Love raiders so being able to solo it will be great.
I also have to echo what others have said about seems communication. Top notch both on here and on BGG. I’ve always got very quick feedback. Very interested to see where the architects trilogy goes. I’m late to the party with raiders so excited to see the next one trough.
@Felix: There are no plans for retail at this stage. Just an online promotion.
Will the solo variant for raiders and/or the jarl promo be available at physical stores?
@Deaser: I will post an update tomorrow. All good news!
@Deaser - Shem is probably tied up with the Explorers expansion fulfilment which is just going through at the moment, and handling the Raiders solo pre-orders (ordered mine the other day)
any update soon?
Shem gives the best updates and feed back... just saying from other kickstarter campaigns that are not the greatest.. There are soooo many games out that I am not bothered by delays, just lack of backer feed back FROM other campaigns . No worries here as I get the feeling this game is ready to go, designed and will be done by trusted suppliers and will be solid like his other games. Reason I preordered the Raiders collector box a way back and some other parts. Things arrive when they arrive and are a big surprise when they do, and I never hound over delays just feedback. Good feedback Shem...I'll check back in a couple of months when it rains or summer here is over in Canada
@Gambit_0815: Yes, we are still on schedule. Thanks.
What d you think?
Are you still in time with "architects"?
Do you think that the game arrives before Christmas (German Version)?
Wish you were going to be at Origins. Would love to try this game out.
@Jose: I will do a formal update next week. Everything is moving along smoothly though. Thanks!
Hello! Any news? the last update was more than a month ago
@Robert: Click on the blue "View Pledge" button on the campaign page and go to the "Survey" tab to update your address.
I recently moved - what would be the easiest way to get you my new address?
@Paolo: I can't confirm yet, but it could possibly be before Christmas. It all depends how quickly they get to print.
@Shem, that's great news! Any idea when it will be available in stores here in Italy?
@Jonah: I am just waiting on EU Kickstarter rewards to be sent out. Should be any day now. I will make Rocks of Ruin available on my website once that happens. Thanks!
Hey Shem, we’re running out of days in May - just wondering if Rocks of Ruin is still coming out this month?
@Paolo: That’s correct. Ghenos Games are producing the Italian version in the near future. Expansions may follow if it sells well.
@shem Sorry, I was referring to Raiders and its expansions. I thought the box contained the game, but maybe I'm wrong and it is just a box for the game owners.
In this case... any chance to have Raiders and its expansions in Italian? :-)
@Andrew: It is the same size as Raiders, Explorers, etc. Thanks!
This question may have already been asked but do we know what size the box will be? I was curious if it would be the same size as the North Sea Trilogy games or if it was more of a “Ticket to Ride” sized box.
@Paolo: No. The Collector's Box doesn't have any language-dependent components inside the box though (just wooden provisions and a plastic insert). On the back it has English, German and French. Each side of the box has either an English, French, German or no logo present. So if you don't want one of the other languages displayed on your shelf, you can show the side without a logo.
Any chance to have the Raiders Collector's Box in Italian language? :-(((
@Max: Very soon!
Any idea when will the next update be?
Oh sweet. For pre-order or readily available?
@Jonah: Rocks of Ruin should be available at www.garphill.com inside the next couple of weeks. Just waiting for Kickstarter rewards to ship out first.
Is there any word as to when Rocks of Ruin will become available for order/per-order? Or is it just ‘sometime in May’?
It sucks we have to wait 2 months for these, I didn’t want to start playing my copy of Explorers until I got the expansion but I’m not sure if I can hold out for two months.
In case anyone didn't catch the announcement on Garphill's Facebook page... pre-orders for Raider's Collector's Box are available at garphill.com.
Such a tease.
@Andrew: The Raiders Solo Variant will be released next month. I also I something else being announced later this month!
Any future campaigns planned for this year? Curious about potential expansions or the next game? Yes I know this is super early to ask but I just want to keep riding this Garphill Games high. Any tiny information would be awesome... please lol
Raiders of the North Sea just became a Mensa Select:
Congratulations to Shem!
@Jonah: Only in the Renegade version. I'll flick you a private message in a sec...
Oh that’s a bummer. I’ve heard rumours that it’s now included in the base game, is this true?
@Jonah: That is sold out now. No plans for a reprint either.
Awesome! Also where could we pick up the villager expansion for Shipwrights? I don't see it on the website.
@Jonah: I'm just waiting on an accurate date for the Collector's Boxes. I should open pre-orders soon to save your refresh button though. Thanks!
Hey Shem, is there a specific time in May that the Collector’s box is coming out? (So I can stop checking everyday)
I bought Raiders and its expansions several weeks ago based on the suggestion of a friend and before I even got the chance to play Raiders, I pledged Architects with the hope that lightening will strike twice/again. I finally got Raiders to the table last night and I'm now sold on anything Shem Phillips touches. Raiders is such a great game that takes the usual worker placement mechanic and changes it up in a way to make it fresh, unique, and different with each time the game is played. Looking forward to adding the expansions to the core game and I can't wait to get the solo variant and the Collector's Box.
@Caleb: It should be available in June. Thanks!
I was wondering if you knew when the solo version for raiders will be sold
@Admiral Moggie: It will likely be later in the year, perhaps around September.
Would you have a rough ETA on when preorders will open up for purchase? I want to make sure I've got the clams in my wallet on time!
ah okey was not aware of it. thanks
@n4Sphere: There is no pledge manager for this campaign. You can sign-up to be notified of when pre-orders open here: https://mailchi.mp/bf49f57e1df5/architects-pre-order-sign-up
