Victory Book & other progress
Hello Illimat backers & friends!
We wanted to give you an update on what we're been up to for Illimat in the past six months as well as let you know about the upcoming release of the Illimat Victory Book!
Illimat Victory Book
What is it? The Illimat Victory book is a small pocket sized soft covered notebook in which to track epic wins, your progress through society ranks, and a reference to the most important rules variants currently available. We took the last few months to incorporate what we've learned about how people play the game and what they want to see in it to make it special. The booklets are being printed in Portland, Oregon by Scout Books who are not only wonderful printers but fans of Illimat and fellow Kickstarter backers. We're currently working on a way to provide each backer with a coupon code to redeem it for themselves. We'll provide details on how to get one in our next update (about 4-6 weeks from now) when the books are in our warehouse and ready to ship.
Getting Illimat Out Into the World
The major focus of the last six months is been getting Illimat out into the wider world. We believe this game is a gateway into modern gaming with classic appeal. But as a tiny company with a unique product this has been hard work—though it's been made easier because you as backers have played the game and told your friends about it. Thanks to all this collective work, we burned through our first printing of Illimat AND the expansion. Currently we're well through our second printing. We set up distribution that allows us to sell to hobby game stores, in the US, UK, EU, Canada, and Australia as well as direct wholesale sales through twogetherstudios.com for other types of retailers.
For Illimat, we continue to work daily to spread the word—we want to be on holiday gift lists and make it easier for people to learn and find fellow players. We've got lots of plans in the works, and we're always accepting ideas! We'd love it if you followed us on twitter or instagram so you're in the know about giveaways, new video tutorials, and other fun Society of Luminaries happenings. Currently, our Knight of Summer tote is on sale this week! As far as future expansions- we have a set of luminary cards in test mode and we'll be working on seeing if an expansion in 2019 is in the cards. Follow us on social media or join our mailing list so that you are in the know if it happens.
We'll check in once again with an update when the Victory Book is in our warehouses and ready to ship.
Thank you for your support and making Illimat happen!
