Hi everyone,

It has been a couple of weeks since the last update and things have been going as planned. Kickstarter have now finished collecting payments and will be transferring the money to us shortly, as such I can now confirm the launch date of our Pledge Manager will be:

Monday 4th June

On Monday we will select 5% of our backers at random and invite them to the pledge manager. Once we are confident everything is working correctly (within 24 hours) we will invite everyone else to complete their surveys.

I will send another update out on Monday to let everyone know when the invites start going out.

UK Games Expo

This weekend we will be at the UK Games Expo in hall 1 and our stand number is D4.

We will have copies of The City of Kings and Vadoran Gardens available to play and I hope you can come along and say hello, I'd love to meet you and show you the games.

We will also have the a few of our limited-edition art prints (they are starting to run out) and a special promo card for sale:

 I look forward to seeing you there!

- Frank

      Hi Björn,

      The promo cards will be £5 at conventions, we have not yet looked into prices and shipping options for the online store but will send out an update around Christmas when these become available.

      Did I get that right?
      The Promo Card will be 5£?
      With or without international shipping?

      And i thought Promo ~> Promotion ~> Advertisement ...

      So I can decide if I want another / second CoK + Deluxe Upgrade + World Packs pledge or 29 Promo Cards+2,6 Cards instead of shipping?

      I guess I will not need the "not really complete" completionist pack, but maybe rather get 9 single promo cards... :_(

      @Frank

      Then you my friend are amazing!!! Too many publishers do the con-only promos. I love the fact you have taken the pledge to allow your fans that don't attend cons to purchase them.

      For this I thank you and will give you my word I will be buying them (if I don't see you at Gen Con as I will be working a booth there)

      Hi Everyone,

      There seems to be a lot of people who are confused about the promo card, please note the following:

      All of our promo cards (this is the third one to be released) will be available to buy directly online at the end of the year.

      Between now and then you will be able to get them via different methods, such as backing the Man VS Meeple or No Pun Included Kickstarters earlier this year, and at our convention stands at all event we attend.

      Nothing in The City of Kings is exclusive, and everything will always be available to everyone eventually.

      Nina Fleischer: I think it would be only fair to put those promos in the packages of backers as well! Not every one of us has the possibility of crossing an ocean for a peace of cardboard, you know.

      Once the convention season ends they will be made available online.

      Fear The Clown: Any way to buy the promo cards without being there?

      They will be available later in the year after the convention season concludes (after Essen).

      DangerClose: How much will they be please? Trying to et one of the group to pick one up for me.

      The prints are £15 - £20 each and the promo card will be £5.

      Jason Winterfeld: @Frank I agree with some of the comments below. I understand the need to do Con-Promos but you should take the directive another company does (Chip Theory Games) and they offer their con-only promos for sale after the convention season. This gives your paying customers a chance to get the promos if they want them as well. I know I would buy any promo for games I play that are offered this way.

      It's a shame people have jumped to the conclusion these are con-only, they will be available after the convention season online.

      Michael Boucher: Oooh how can we get our hands on those promo cards? Will they be available on BGG Store perhaps? Take my money!

      I'll look into that option when we make them widely available later in the year.

      Kittylady: Con-only promos are INCREDIBLY shitty, especially to the people that gave you the money to make them.

      Hi Kittylady, it seems you've misunderstood something here so I want to clarify a couple of points.

      1) These promo cards have nothing to do with the Kickstarter, they were printed months ago which is why we already have them in our office.

      2) These wont be con-only, they are being made available at the conventions first and will then be available via other forms after that. Anyone who backed this Kickstarter will have the chance to get the promo cards before their pledge arrives.

      noah Caldwell: I would like to buy some of these promos! I can’t afford to go to any conventions. How could I get these promos ?

      Once the convention season ends (after Essen) we'll be looking to make the remaining cards available online.

      Hopefully, but this will depend on whether or not we are at Essen this year, which is still to be confirmed.

      I would also love to get my came on the promo but crossing the pond is a bit much for us to go to a con.

      +1... I have reserved both of the other promos, but I can't travel to the UK. I would like the opportunity to purchase a copy.

      @kittylady (and others), con promo's have been going on for years and will keep on going for years to come. You didn't pay to have the cards made (you paid to get your game(s).
