Outposts, Rules, and Stretch Goals!
We love games because they bring people together, and that’s something we are exploring in our campaign. We’ve just mailed playtest copies of ILLIMAT to twenty-six game stores and cafes around the world, and we’ll post a searchable map of these Illimat Outposts next week. Once a location near you has a copy, you can stop by and ask to play it. In addition, we’ll post the initial version of the rules next week for review.
These are early prototypes, so a number of components (the box, the okus counters and scoring tokens) don't match the final version, but it’s close enough to give you a feel for the game. To clarify on components, the okus counters will be custom metal coins. The cloth board is 24” x 24”, and the cards are high quality - 300 GSM white core linen finish.
Beyond that: we’ve mentioned that we have stretch goals that will unlock exclusive rewards for backers, and now it’s time to reveal those. Three of our goals are tied to the number of people who back the project; whenever we hit those numbers we’ll unveil the reward. The remaining three are tied to dates. Colin Meloy will reveal our MUSIC & GAMES goal in tomorrow’s update. Next up is THE RUMBLE, which is going to be fun!
Thanks for your support!
