      Hi, guys, congratulations! I'm from Brazil and I'm available to help with the rules translation to Brazilian Portuguese if you need.

    4. MADARA LLC Creator about 23 hours ago

      Henry, thanks for that advise. I also realized I wanted to have some good proof reading looks over the rules and PnP files again, so yes I think i should take at least couple to few weeks on the digital giveaways.

      I like getting stuff as much as anyone else, but I'd rather not see you short-changed, either. It takes Kickstarter a couple of weeks to resolve billing issues and get the money to you, so I suggest waiting until you receive funds before delivering any portion of the rewards.

    6. MADARA LLC Creator 1 day ago

      We made it! Thank you everyone for backing this this project. The past three weeks experience was so exciting and unforgettable. Special thanks for those collaborators and those participated in the Bring Your Reinforcements campaign to help unlock the SGs.

      We will swiftly start working on the delivery of the digital rewards first. I am planning to get those items out today.

      @Creator - Thank you for the answer! Hope we can reach the next stretch goal in these last few hours!

    15. MADARA LLC Creator 2 days ago

      5 more hours.... very excited. Anybody watching this thread?

    16. MADARA LLC Creator 2 days ago

      We are so close.... can we get additional $1800 within 6 hours?
      Let's ignite the Bring Your Reinforcements Campaign and let the world know we are so close to winning the Battle of Sekigahara.

    17. MADARA LLC Creator 2 days ago

      Yes, it will have all the unlocked items.

    18. Dawras 2 days ago

      @Creator - Sorry if I've already asked this question before: will my "two copies of Zipang Portable" pledge give me access to all the unlocked stretch goals in double?

    19. MADARA LLC Creator 2 days ago

      Rudy: Yes all pledge level will still get the PnP as well as other digital stretch goal items. (Poster file and music)

      If I change my pledge from P&P to full game, do I get P&P files as well ? So I can make some translations.

    21. MADARA LLC Creator 3 days ago

      Wow, that was really fast to unlock the SG on the Battle of Nagashino in a single day.
      We are now targeting Battle of Yamazaki for the Gold Inner Lids. Our personal favorite.

      Let's not forget that we are still working on the "Bring Your Reinforcement" Campaign together to further unlock those Coin Bags...

      Can we get to the next Stretch Goal? Probably yes, but what about the Linen Bag?
      We are projecting very close to it.

    23. MADARA LLC Creator 3 days ago

      Interesting about the PnP stuff.

      We are coming close to the final 48 hours stretch!!

      Does anybody know where we should be promoting this KS page at this moment?
      May be folks here could help us identify them and spread the words out?

      @MADARA LLC I would expect PnP card back art on a finished product. Hit and miss on a "playtesting" copy. Normally you would see a pdf of whatever is the commercial release with correct registration to the front sheets but I was suggesting use the alternative art. In that way the PnP'ers would have a something of an exclusive design at least for card back.

    29. Gianluca Casu 4 days ago

      @Madara of course PnP has back of the cards, why, where you expecting not to send one?

    30. MADARA LLC Creator 4 days ago

      How is everyone doing? Getting excited to see the growth in the last 70 hours?
      Please keep flowing in some interesting ideas that we can work together to make some impact!

    31. MADARA LLC Creator 4 days ago

      Sounds interesting. Does typical PnP comes with back of the card picture too?

    32. Mark Fadden

      Ya know what would be stellar? If you made that original Kickstarter art into a card back for the PnP.

    33. MADARA LLC Creator 4 days ago

      The_Real_Infernape: yes, we are interested! Let's talk off line!

    34. The_Real_Infernape 5 days ago

      Bring Your Reinforcements Campaign is out!
      Let's collaborate, unite and spread the words out to unlock those stretch goals!!
      Check this FB site out for more info.

    46. MADARA LLC Creator on September 16

      I guess the question would be how can we get the friendly and committing backers to tell the others about this project? We would definitely appreciative of that, we would also like those stretch goals for ourselves too.

    47. SableFox on September 16

      You can leverage your existing backers with (paid for) add-ons. Ideas could be an add-on linen bag, or upgraded coins (I'd pledge more for these). You have to be careful that the additional funds will cover the incremental cost of the new rewards.

      The best way to increase the pledge level is simply to get more backers. That means the project creators and backers telling people about this: friends, family, forums, clubs etc.

      I agree that you may add new backers by offering a solo play version (often a fairly popular idea). I would like to see this, but unless you charge extra for it, it won't get me to raise my pledge.

    48. MADARA LLC Creator on September 16

      Okay, 6 more days to go. I wanted to ask folks in here, that how we can really stretch the funding target to higher projection? I wanted to unlock that "gold" in inner boxes...

      Ideas wanted!!!
