It is time for us to wrap up the campaign, by now everyone should have received their games and I want to thank you all for the incredible journey that has been Ancient Allies and Vadoran Gardens. I’m so pleased to see the next part of The City of Kings out in the world and I look forward to sharing more adventures with you in the years to come.
Keeping in touch
I believe in keeping marketing, emails and, general communications to a minimum and as such I will not be sending out updates on this campaign when future projects launch.

New Stories and Scenarios (Print & Play content)
This week I am releasing 15 new scenarios and 1 extra story for The City of Kings, these are all available for free and can be downloaded today. They introduce a variety of new objectives, new rules and some epic adventures!
This includes an extended story which will take you through every map tile, all 7 bosses and a variety of challenges in the base game over a 12 – 18 hour period.
You can see a full list of all the new content here.
For the past few weeks I have been running 3 competitions for The City of Kings and today I would like to announce the results.
Best painted miniature
This was incredibly hard to judge, there were over 100 entries in the end, and I can’t believe the quality of paintings submitted! Rather than just sharing the winner, I thought I would select my favourite for each character, and then provide 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
The winner was Gary Sailor with an incredible looking Rapuil, I’ll be in touch soon to arrange your prize!
The range of photos submitted was equally challenging, from game shots and setups, to scenic views and custom designs. This was tough to judge but in the end, I decided this photo from Laurent Mottais provided a beautiful look into the world and had to take first place.
Best custom scenario
I would like to put a special thank you to those of you who took the time to design new scenarios and enter them into the competition. There have been loads of custom scenarios added to Board Game Geek over the last month (you can find them here) and I hope to see these continue to be made.
Some of my favourite ideas from the entries included expanding boards, time travel between green and orange tiles, burning wood to clear a frost covered board and spending resources to create maps of unexplored locations.
In the end though the winner was Kai Puolakanaho with City Under Siege, an incredible scenario where players defend against a siege of endless creatures, trying to defend towers and survive long enough for the enemy to retreat.
Unfortunately, this scenario isn’t yet on Board Game Geek, but hopefully it will be soon. Once it is, I will post a link in this thread so keep your eyes open and check back soon.
UK Games Expo
I am about to start looking for volunteers to help demo The City of Kings and Vadoran Gardens at the UK Games Expo. Ideally, I’m looking for people who are very familiar with either of the games and would like to spend time at the show demo’ing them. If this is something you would like to do, please use the general enquiry details here and let me know.
That’s it, we are at the end and both Sara and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You’ve changed our lives, we look forward to seeing you at future shows or perhaps our next Kickstarter. Have a fantastic day, enjoy March and perhaps we’ll meet again before the end of 2019 ;)
