      False Alarm. The Unicorn Games delivery was for Darkest Night, although the code was CK (I thought City of Kings). er...I'll just get my coat now...

      Hey Frank,
      One question is there already a final version of the rulebook? On the website there is still the pre release rulebook. I would like to get through the rules before the game arrives!

    19. Krinkard - Roller of 1s on February 9

      @Frank - I gotta say, I'm pretty upset. If you wouldn't have made such an enticing and (almost assuredly) fun game I wouldn't have to wish the next couple months of my life away. I mean, there are a handful of other games i'm playing and have a lot of other stuff to do so its not THAT bad but jeeze. Please make worse games so i dont feel compelled to check back in and reread the campaign page every 45 mins.

      TL;DR - Frank West for president.

      So is it April yet? :P
      Again Frank, the time and effort you put in to this campagin long after it ended is kind of setting a VERY high standard for others to try and live up to.

      Hi Asef,

      I'm afraid not, the pledge manager is closed. I'll look into why this email was sent! Thanks.

      Hi Frank,

      Is the pledge manager still available for UK? I've received an email asking me to pay for the game, which I totally forgot to do.

      No worries murteas! I certainly didn't think you were, I'm just aware a lot of people silently read comments (hi silent readers!) and wanted to make sure I didn't confuse the subject.

      I'm certainly not planning to run for a political position in the US at the moment, but I'm regularly spending my evenings attempting to become High Priest in Vadoran Gardens ;)

    27. murteas on January 29

      Thanks for the update! I definitely was not trying to complain, my question was pure anticipation and excitement to get the game. I totally respect and applaud you for the transparency and honesty you have shown us. (Any chance you want to move to the States and run for political office somewhere? We could use your attitude in government. :) ) In any case, looking forward to the game when it comes, glad things are going as expected.

      Hi Murteas,

      We are still on track with the updated timeline I posted.

      Just to clarify where we are at, as "shipping" is only partly accurate. The wording I used in the update was:

      "We’re currently estimating the game boxes will be printed and ready to ship by the 15th January."

      I can confirm the games were ready to ship by that date and our shipping partner was notified. So we're now in the 8 week process of shipping. This first couple of weeks of this involves our shipping partner scheduling boats and transporting the boxes to the docks.

      So depending where you stand, this may or may not classify as actually shipping.

      The boxes should be going onto ships any day now, some of them may be on boats but it takes a few days for the updates to come through.

      Hopefully this helps bring everyone up-to-date on where we are at!

    30. murteas on January 25

      I know the plan was to get the boxes shipping on the 15th of this month. Did that happen?

      @Frank West I have been dealing with another Kickstarter that has been very vague about things happening to the project.....going throught that kinda thing for the first time made me realize how awesome you are!

      Wang Tang: A technical question regarding scenario and story play: what is the average number of creatures spawned per mode?

      It's difficult to state a specific number, as each story and scenario varies and the number of creatures spawned generally is very dependant on the decisions players make. Typically it's somewhere between 5 and 10, but it's possible to be less or more depending on your actions.

      Just a little tip, if you CTRL F to find City of Kings on the nomination page, it's listed "City of Kings, The" not the city of kings.

      I searched for the city of kings but missed it and hit the nomination button before I realized what I had done! Looks like it is doing good on the pols though!
