This means we've cleared all the initial stretch goals! Now let's see if we can hit 25k! Erm, as in "25k", not "25k!"... That'd just be ridiculous, forget a board game, you could colonize new galaxies with that sort of money.

Congrats to Scott Peterson.

Now let's see if we can get those altar tokens into the game!

It is exciting isn't it! And I am running around making sure everything is packed and ready for my flight, trying to address e-mails and comments as they appear, and also celebrate hitting $20k. Busy day!

Congrats to me, Lance Hill too! I am assuming you were congratulating Scott Preston, who has made the promotion of Kings of Israel his unpaid part-time job. He definitely deserves it too not to mention about another thirty people. The Mike's, the Arthur's, the Jonathan's, the Rose's, I could keep going.

Thank you everyone for your support and let's see if we can hit $25k!

Re: 20k passed!
My apologies; I guess I misread the project details, I was on another page and not looking at your profile directly. You're the one I had meant to congratulate (though all those involved in the project certainly deserve it too).

Re: 20k passed!
Lance has run an excellent campaign and hopefully it will only get better with his demos at BGG.con the next couple of days.

I'm just a guy excited about a game with a theme that's very important to me...and that's actually a good game! Because the Bible is absolute, I think that makes it a difficult theme to tackle, but Lance has done a great job with it and I look forward to a possible Kings of Judah expansion and a game about the journeys of Paul, both of which Lance has hinted at during the campaign.

Congrats to Lance first and foremost, but also to all of the KS backers helping to make this game a reality.

Re: 20k passed!
I must concur. You've done a great job on this campaign Lance.

It's up to $21,251 now. Hoping for a really big push in the stretch run to get to $25,000. That'd be wonderful.

Count me in as well on being excited about Kings of Judah and another Journeys of Paul type game. laugh

Re: 20k passed!
And we're in the final stretch... Seems like the last-minute rush has begun, things are starting to pick up. 25k seems so close already...

Re: 20k passed!
First I've heard about a possible Judah expansion - where do I sign up?

We're slowly building our Bible-related collection and Lance's game looks to make an excellent edition. So far we have several that are "keepers" for us:

Settlers of Canaan - excellent game, somewhat weak on the theme
Journeys of Paul - decent family game
Ark & Noah - decent family game, haven't tried the harder version yet
Promised Land - should be coming in soon, looks...well...promising
Kings of Israel - hopefully the best of the bunch!

The Bible-based games we've tried have been pretty weak in general but they seem to be getting slowly better. I'm hopeful that Promised Land and Kings of Israel will raise the bar significantly

On to $25k!!!!

Re: 20k passed!
$25k is certainly doable. I'll be a little sad inside if we just miss it. Look at all these fabulous prizes we'll win!

-Wooden altar-shaped tokens!
-New card backs for the five different decks of cards!
-Kickstarter exclusive Farmer ability card!
-Special postcard with rules for a fifth player taking on the role of the villainous false prophet! (Pledges can opt out of this bonus if not interesting in being able to play as the false prophet.)
-A new car in every garage!
-Your name in lights!
-A visit from your in-laws!

Re: 20k passed!
About 250 left to go until 25k! Shouldn't be difficult to get that in the last day!

EDIT: We're there! 25051 now, how high can we get it? Here's hoping for lot's of last minute pledges!

Wait a second, some of those might not be true! Is it the Farmer ability? No, that does not seem to be it...

Kingdom of Solomon is also a fine game with a Biblical theme, even if the theme is a little bit weak.

Yes, we made it! I added two last stretch goal levels just in case the pace continues the next 36 hours. Where will it end!?

27.5k has been passed with 18 hours to go! If we keep up yesterday's pace, we can hit the final stretch goal!

EDIT: We hit 30k with over three hours to spare! Those of you that are trying to make a last minute decision, just think about this: The project hit every stretch goal!
