Shadows of Kilforth, Day 4

Posted by Tristan Hall (Creator)

Well met fellow adventurers!

Just checking back in to keep you up to date on our progress in case you happen to be one of those super cool peeps who does NOT sit on our Kickstarter page with a drinking bird toy constantly headbutting the refresh key. Here's where we at:

£83,847 pledged of £10,000 goal 1,505 backers 26 days to go!!

A whopping pace that puts us ahead of so many stretch goals it's hard to keep up! It also showcases your ability to achieve in just a few days what our other campaigns took weeks to do. Absolutely epic stuff, people, it's like riding the crest of a wave or the zenith of a rollercoaster!

Conventions 2019!!

We are dead excited to be attending Airecon in Harrogate this weekend, and we hope to see as many of you there as we can. We will be demoing games, and who knows, maybe even actually selling some copies too! In any case, our favourite part is meeting fellow gamers and talking game stuff so please come and say hello if you happen to be in the area.

We are also now the proud sponsors of UK Games Expo, so we look forward to seeing you there in June too... 

And for our American friends, I'll be attending GenCon once again this year. You were all so welcoming and friendly I can't wait to come and hang out with you again.


I was recently invited onto the @JTRPodcast for a chat about games and gaming conventions and, amongst other things, Shadows of Kilforth - you can have a listen here:


Some of you might not know that we also run our own podcast on YouTube, iTunes and SoundCloud - #BoardChitless - where we talk to fellow Chitheads about the games we've played and we also get to interview industry titans. For example, here's us chatting to Jamey Stegmaier about all things gaming:

Thank you!!

Thank you to all of you for all of your lovely comments and support, and keep those suggestions coming too. You'll notice that one or two of your ideas have taken shape in the form of stretch goals. So what we can do for you within reason, we most certainly will try to. I selfishly want to stuff the game with as many stories (and therefore art, and cards) as possible but if you want card dividers, stitched playmats, and all that kind of cool bling too, just let us know in the comments and we'll see what Santa says. But just you try and stop me from adding in a tonne of cool, new cards along the way too...

We Need You!

If you want to keep unlocking those stretch goals then please take up your arms and assist us in this journey by sharing, tweeting, facebooking, social media-ing, lighting the beacons and sending those carrier pigeons to spread the word about the campaign!  We are still only a small company and so we really do rely on you and word of mouth to entice new backers to try our games.

      Tempting... actually its 120 miles - 98 was as the crow flies. I might just see you there!

      Richard Grant, we'll be demoing GoK + the expansions, and we'll be demoing and selling copies of 1066, Tears to Many Mothers. :)

      Hi, I hadn't heard of Airecon before... contemplating driving the 98 miles it would take to get to it... What games are you likely to be selling there? Will you be demoing any of the Kilforth games? I still haven't played - or seen! - them... :)
