Have a question?
Really looking forward to this arriving!! Any chance theres still a possibility for an expansion down the road?
Call'im Frank Wizard. Nuff said.
To further celebrate the day I have just uploaded me favourite photo of The City of Kings to Board Game Geek.
I present to you, the characters of The City of Kings:
@Frank West - The hype is real! Thank you for all the hard work going into this project. I absolutely cannot wait!
Wow! That's impressive!
Thanks for going above and beyond to ship our games in time!
Great news Frank, defiantly excited now!
Now only a few more days.....
We are still on track for shipping in March. I will be sending out an update in the next 48 hours, once I've had confirmation of 2 more things.
The last update title said "Current shipping estimate: March 2018"
so are game shipping in March for US
Big Tom Casual: Hey Frank. Frank. You’re awesome. Excited for Gardens.
Thank you - You're awesome too!
Now The City of Games convention is over I'll be sending out more updates about Vadoran Gardens in the coming weeks.
Richard Munro you just gave me a heart attack! Thanks for coming back and clarifying, the games can't be shipping yet so don't do that too me!
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. Frank. You’re awesome. Excited for Gardens.
I think I just received a shipping notification from Unicorn Games for this game, due to arrive Monday in Sydney, Australia. Fingers crossed!
Hi Philipp, I will make a note to update the website, my apologies! The release version of the rulebook is available on the files section of Board Game Geek.
Thank you guys, it's great to be in the top 20 most anticipated games of the year! It's an amazing thing and I'm so thankful for all your votes of support.
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!
@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.
I concur. Thank you for all of the effort you're putting into this campaign, Frank! I'm super excited. Congrats on top 20 anticipated too!
Nice to see this make the top 20 most anticipated games on BGG. Worthy of the title!
I wish! We've got our convention this weekend and as soon as that's over I'm just going to be looking at the calendar waiting for the games to be ready to ship!
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.
In the words of Jim Larrañaga, You da man!
I'm afraid not, the pledge manager is closed. I'll look into why this email was sent! Thanks.
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 ;)
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.
Frank! You are awesome! Being honest and open in your updates. I am impressed.
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!
I know the plan was to get the boxes shipping on the 15th of this month. Did that happen?
@Timothy +1 and this is from someone who is unfortunately currently experiencing a few poorly run projects, some from new and some from experienced Kickstarter creators.
Thank you Timothy! I really appreciate the kind words and I'm sorry to hear you've been having troubles with another project! I hope they manage to sort it out.
@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!
Thank you for being straight forward and clear about City of Kings, the good and the bad during this campaign. I will proudly back future projects that you endeavor!
Humble crusader: Hey frank any update on changing adresss yet ?
I'll be putting out an update this week, but feel free to message me on Kickstarter with your new address should you wish to and I'll update my records for you!
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.

Glad to see this is getting some votes. Certainly one of my most anticipated games 2018!
We're currently in 9th place overall and between 4th - 6th in several of the categories which is amazing, thank you to everyone who has voted so far! Another 50 votes or so in a few of the categories and we might have a chance of 3rd place!
Bush: Voted and voted. This is without doubt my most anticipated game of 2018! You've got good scores on the 'Under the Radar' vote, hopefully means a load more people finding out about the game/creator.
And yes, the Under the Radar voting is going really well! I'm hopeful we'll get more votes on that one and end up in a good place.
Jay Rumple: I know this has been mentioned but is it possible to change addresses? Just found out that I am moving in 2 weeks from TN to FL.
Yes! I will be sending out an update later this month with details on how to do it.

Yes, that's a great point thank you Alex!
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!
We have made it through to the final round and now we really need your help one last time!
If you are looking forward to The City of Kings please vote here:
Happy new year!
And good news at the start of 2018 :)
Hey Glen, thanks for letting me know! I hadn't watched Slickerdrip's video yet and I'm really happy to see us getting mentioned!
This made #1 on Youtuber Slickerdrips’s most anticipated games for 2018!!
