--- Important ---
For anyone who has a questions or concerns, please message me via Kickstarter or email. As this project has now finished and all shipments are complete I wont be checking the comments very often.
Hey Paul, apologies for the slow respone in the comments (I have been speaking to Paul via email but wanted to update anyone who happens to stumble across this).
It looks like your shipment got lost in transit and I have requested a replacement gets sent out.
Did not get my game yet here in Germany. Since others have it already gotten here, I think something has happened.
Congrats on funding
@Jason, my book is still flat.
Looking forward to the new launch in a couple of hours....
We are going live on Facebook in just under 6 hours time to countdown to the new Kickstarter launch! I hope some of you can join us there:
Hey Jason, sorry I don't get notifications on Kickstarter so I have to manually come here and check. Could you email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org please?
I've not heard of this issue with any of the books and none of the ones I have hear (which I've had since August last year) have shown signs of this.
Very SOON™️ - as in today :)
sorry forgot to tag @Frank West
Has anyone else had their ar book covers warp significantly? It started flat, but now a couple of weeks after getting it both sides are quite bowed. I have heavy games on them now to see if that flattens them out.
@ Frank West & Command, thank you!!! Received my Collectors Edition 02.04.2018 from DHL. And enjoyed by unboxing and sleeving the cards:-) All the components are brilliant!!! Waiting for my friends to enjoy the first game...
"I will only be adding miniatures for the heroes at this time. The goal is not to fill The City of Kings with hundreds of miniatures to replace every piece, but to provide a small set of very high quality hero miniatures for those wishing to have them."
NOOOO!!!!!!! Unless Olok is now a hero.. YESSSSS!!!! :-) :-)
Hey bigwoof! Miniatures are indeed a thing for the heroes
No plushies though this time around :(
Hi Cador, I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the game.
We wont be adding creature standees in to replace the faction banners, as it doesn't fit with the world we've created. However, you can use the boss standees as creatures if that's something you would like. You'll not on the back of each boss template is a generic creature template for this purpose.
also the missus asked me to remind you again.. plushies... :-)
so there actually are minis planned for TCoK? interesting!! Is Olok getting a mini? what about Slorchie?
i really like the game. one thing i would have found better is, if all the enemy standees were like the boss ones. a real monster or person. so for example just a generic orc with armour or a dragon like creature. smth that fits their descreption on the back of the sheets... that would be cool!!! (addon in the next KS perhaps? just 15 standees?)
That's great to hear Humble crusader , thank you!
I'm glad you're enjoy the game and wish you good luck with the next stories!
Hey Frank just wanted to say what a masterpiece you have created. Beat the first four storys and hoping p attempt the fifth sometime this week. Really enjoying it. The combat is fun and the diffrent ways you need to level up your characters to beat each scenarios is challenging. It forces diffrent tactics each game
Just had to say how fun your game is.
Just 8 more days until our new Kickstarter for The City of Kings Ancient Allies * Vadoran Gardens, can you join us for the launch?
Hi Pierre, if you've not received your tracking information please feel free to email me (see todays update for details). Otherwise, the game should be with you soon and I apologise it's been so slow.
Hi Frank, still not there and gamequest is playing like death to my ticket open since 8 days
Hey, Frank! Thank you for your fast reply. I'll keep posted as well on further developments on my side.
Hi Luis, please don't worry just yet! I've actually been speaking with Gamesquest about this already today, as another Portuguese backer had a similar issue. They have informed me the parcels are still being processed through the local delivery service and are on their way. I'll be keeping an eye on this and checking up on it regularly.
Oh and also from GamesQuest
I got tracking on the 15th, but it never updated with any info. Yesterday it arrived, still with nothing on the tracking info.
I received my tracking number on the 19th of march from Gamequest. It forwards me to the portuguese delivery service that recognises the tracking number but says no "available information". It's been that way since the 19th with no change whatsoever. Should I be worried? Let me know if there's anything that can be done.
Thank you so much!
Hey René, it's certainly an option. Whilst I wanted the story and scenario text to be responsible for introducing these ideas, perhaps "setting the scene" in the rulebook/elsewhere in the box might be beneficial for those struggling to grasp the concept.
@ frank no idea what tom tom talking about there was no theme in the city of games . and randomness you nead a certain amount . to be a very good game ;] I think you got it right in both areas .
Watched the Tom Vasel video. I think he didn’t realised that the monster are very thematic as Vesh has made and changed them in his laboratories.
Perhaps one thing for the new rule book that this will be more explicitly described?
Is it the 17th now? ;)
Could be anything? They are finely crafted exact replicas of the real thing!
small print: One of those minis could be anything though. lets just call it Olok and move on.. :-)
@Frank The detail on that miniature pack is AMAZING!! sad you left out Olok though.. :-)
------------ Announcement ------------
Ever since we first announced The City of Kings we have received one question on a regular basis:
Will there be minis?
Today I am pleased to reveal our brand new Hero Miniature Pack, finally allowing you to replace your standees with these beautiful sculpted miniatures!
The Hero Miniatures Pack contains 6 minis and will be available as an optional extra during our upcoming Kickstarter on April 17th.
Hey Alex, it's certainly something I'm looking into as an option!
@Frank Finished story 1 yesterday (after several tries!) and loving it. Great to hear that the add ons will be available again in the second KS - any chance of a 'Deluxe' bundle (a bundle deal to turn the Adventurer edition into the Deluxe edition)? I bought the Adventurer edition but would now love an opportunity to upgrade to the Deluxe edition at the KS prices. Am not bothered by waiting a bit for it. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing what's next for City of Kings.
@Frank just got it and followed your video to pack it. Thanks for the video. Material looks of excellent quality. Can’t wait to play the game.
Hello from France,
The tracking infos said my package was delivered yesterday, but I only found in my mail box the invoice of the game, not the game itself. I wrote to Colis Privé today and they will answer to me in the next four days. I hope my game is not lost.
Hi Pierre, this can happen sometimes when the packages are passing through multiple countries. Tiago's turned up shortly after their post, so hopefully yours will arrive in the next few days. If it's still not here next week we'll be able to start looking into it.
Hi Franck, Tiago Soares. I've got the same problem. I still did not received my game although I have a tracking number. Now when I check my tracking number sent thursday 15th, it is empty and I get the message 'No tracking details can be found', also when I look at the mentionned adres I find just Belgium BE instead of the full address. It is funny because for other KS one I received with a shipping advice untracked and went ok and another no advice but received it much sooner than foreseen. Anyways I opened a ticket at gamesquest but still have no answer
@tiago soares : did you had your correct address on your tracking message?
Tracked the 20th. ColisPrive received it on the 26th. I received it today. Good luck ! :)
@All French : how long was it from the shipped status to the real delivery. My package was tracked from 20/03, shipped on 23/03 but still not retrieved by Colis Privé...so not delivery scheduled yet.
A ha! Perfect, glad it arrived!
@Frank, nevermind! It just arrived! Looks amazing! :)
Thank you Frank ! I think I will wait then. I need to play first before deciding what I would like to add. Moreover if I like the game I will make a pledge for the additional scenarios etc. Congratulations for your game !
