@Frank: you reap what you sow 😉
@Frank: Brilliant idea :)
Thank you to everyone who has voted for Rising Blades in the competition! We've had about 150 votes more than I expected and I am incredibly excited by that. When I asked I thought we might get into the top 5 if we were lucky and get a little bit more attention.
This morning I work up to being a few votes away from second and sitting in the BGG hotness. You guys are amazing!
I don't think this would have been from us, we didn't start shipping until the 9th January in the EU.
Ahh, that's frustrating! Hopefully you'll find out the day soon... Until then I recommend standing at the door every day at the given time!
Hey Lee, I'll be releasing a lot more information about the game in the coming weeks. You can get perhaps a hint of the game from this description:
But everything else will come soon!
I got a notification on the 21st of December that the package was dsipatched to Royal Mail and since then nothing. I begin to worry a bit about my game.
Can you check please ?
Yes! Got a mail from GLS (uh oh, most horrible delivery service in Hamburg) and now I know at which hour I will get my package - but not the date... Rofl
Vote. Glad to help. I have got the email for my game. Currently reading the rules. I’m very excited.
Pleasantly surprised to find a note from the post office telling me to collect a parcel when I got home this evening, and a very large box at the post office! I wasn't expecting to see it so soon!
Well done, Frank.
Can you tell us anything about your new game? What kind of game is it?
Well thanks for making my evening Swift_Illusion! I really appreciate you telling me that, it's fantastic to hear and I'm glad you're enjoing Vadoran Gardens (along with everything else).
Have a fantastic weekend!
I actually always forget about that stuff so thanks for the reminder, I know how important it is for designers :).
Also on the note of Vadoran Gardens, thought I'd take the opportunity to say it just arrived here (Australia) and had an awesomely fun playthrough of it with my Mum. She can be very hesitant with thinky games but she was able to enjoy it just as much as me so it's already a top fave in my books, love all of the decision making and twists and turns that can bend your plans thanks to the lessons, etc. Can't wait to get more games of it played once the other common player in my game group is available :)! Great work all of you.
Not to mention how insanely cool the mini's are and how excited I am to get into City of Kings with those new characters, quests, etc :D
Thank you all, you're wonderful people!
mwhahahahahaaa I'd already voted :p
Voted! Hope you win Frank
BGG vote is in and I’ll be keeping my eyes open for the campaign, following a brilliant one on this one and hopefully you’ll avoid any shipping issues on the next one!!
Thank you to everyone who is voting, if we manage another 40 votes then we'll jump into the top 5 and will get noticed much more. It's fantastic to see so many of you helping out!
@Bas: Frank tried to explain that GQ send all package out (hand over the package to delivery service), but not all email are send by now. We should wait until 23th and if we don't have a mail by then just contact Frank.
Done! I’m loving City if Kings and your next game will be an instant back for me. Can’t wait!
Hey guys, for those of you who are saying you've not received your notification, please take note of the "I have not had a notification, or received my game?" section of the update.
All of the games have been shipped, but notifications will still be sent out over the coming days.
Done and done! Easiest favor I have done in a while. Best of luck!
Voted! I have played three times so far and loving the game!
I have not received any notification the gamesquest from spain
Got a notice from Canada Post earlier this week that a package was coming from Starlit.
Voted! Can’t wait for the game!
Same here in the Netherlands : no notification and no game....seems a bit premature to me to claim "complete fulfilment".
Thank you Chad! And yes, there are a lot of cool games on the lists!
Voted. Also saw a lot of new things to check out among the nominees
Hi Najve, thanks for voting - It means more than you can imagine.
For EU orders it can take up to 10 working days for the package to get out of the UK and to your home, normally it is quicker but we do have to allow that period of time before we can investigate.
I'm sure it will start updating soon.
i have a problem with my tracking... in transit and no further information...
Dorian Okupinski: No notification and no game so far and I'm in UK. How did they finish all shipments then?
Hi Dorian, I mentioned this in the update:
"Even though all the games have been shipped, the email notifications are still being processed and some of you won’t get them for a few more days."
Unfortunately there is sometimes a disconnect between a physical box leaving their fulfilment center, and an email notification being sent.
René Schultze: Hm, I‘m not very satisfied with GQ... My parcel is in Heathrow since 16.01.19 and nothing has happened :( But hey: joyful anticipation is the best enjoyment ;)
I'm sorry it's taking a while to leave the country, we always hope the transit will be quick but do ask people in the EU to allow up to 10 days for it to get there. Hopefully the box will start flying soon.
No notification and no game so far and I'm in UK. How did they finish all shipments then?
Yes, Rising Blades will be a different game but the art style and stories overlap. It's set in the past at the point in time where Vesh sends his armies out to destroy the world. You'll be playing the leaders of the different factions trying too become the Darkhand's Commander of War.

Thank you Jawby!
Hey Ryan, the artwork for Rising Blades will be very similar to The City of Kings and I'll slowly start releasing it later this year.
Oooh new game in CoK world?!?!? Color me interested
Thanks Frank! :)
Any art for the upcoming game available to give a sense for what it will look like?
