Last 3 Days: Get Ready To Rumble

Posted by Twogether Studios, LLC (Creator)

We can’t believe we only have a few days left in the campaign. Thank you for backing our game and being so excited about what we’re making. We might be biased & a little exhausted, but we think the next few days will be the best of the campaign yet. Here’s why….

The Rumble 

Wednesday Nov 2nd 6-9pm Pacific/9-12 Eastern

 Wednesday, November 2nd The Decemberists, Twogether Studios and special guests invite you to hang with us as we face off in a tournament streamed live on the Illimat Kickstarter page. Think of this as our virtual Illimat party in which we want to give you a gift. If we get 500 viewers we’ll unlock an exclusive okus token that will be included in your Kickstarter edition of the game. The Illimat Rumble champion will get the honor of choosing the okus design. We’ll be looking to you the viewers watching on the stream to weigh in on the okus designs in the running, provide life coaching to those in the loser's corner, and engage in general banter with us via chat.

Carson Play & Q&A 

Tuesday 12:00- 12:45 Pacific/3:00-3:45 Eastern

We're starting off the week with an interview with Carson Ellis. From the original board (developed by Carson and photographer Autumn de Wilde) to the cards and Luminaries, Carson has shaped the visual experience of Illimat. Join Carson & Keith live tomorrow at noon Pacific time when she plays a game with designer Keith Baker and answers questions live on our Kickstarter stream!

      Nice! I missed the livestream with Carson, but I guess that brief video tells us that the last luminary was The Newborn. Interested to hear what rules come into play with that card.

      Wednesday is the 2nd - is this Wednesday or Thursday?

      Really looking forward to the Q&A tomorrow and the Rumble on Wednesday. Getting more excited about this game! While I love the idea of the audio instructions, I'm not into buying it on vinyl. Would there be the opportunity to get the only the audio download (paid or free)? Thanks!
