The Dark Cities Series is Expanding!
Backers and Friends,
Hope you all are doing well!
Our manufacturer is busy producing Tortuga 1667 and they have estimated that the games will finish production on May 29th! After that, it generally takes 6-8 weeks to cargo the games to our fulfillment centers around the world. And then...you get the game! Including cargo time, it’s looking like right now we will indeed reach our promised delivery date of August. We’ll keep you in the loop!
We also have an exciting announcement about our first game, Salem, originally released on Kickstarter in April 2015. Because we’ve had so many of our Tortuga 1667 backers add-on Salem, we’re producing the 2nd Edition much sooner than expected. After much thought we’ve decided to re-name it “Salem 1692” and officially add it into the Dark Cities Series! This 2nd Edition faux book will be larger to fit sleeved cards (it will be the same size as the Tortuga 1667 book), it will include new “Kill” cards instead of the original plastic tokens, it will use a black-sand hourglass, and will have a brand new wooden “gavel” save token. We’re very excited for these updates!
As a way of saying thanks, we’ll be sending out this bigger, higher-quality 2nd Edition of Salem 1692 to any of our backers who have already added Salem in CrowdOx, or who add it within the next few weeks. If you’re interested in adding it to your order, you can easily re-open your CrowdOx survey at the following link: https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/travishancock/tortuga-1667-a-pirate-game-of-mutiny-plunder-and-d. The cost is $25 and there are no extra shipping charges. You’ll receive Salem 1692 in August with your copies of Tortuga 1667. If you'd prefer the original edition of Salem instead, just let us know.
We’ll send out another update in a few weeks. Have a great day!
Travis & Holly
