"Project Update #35: Announcing Lost Valley: The Yukon Mini-Expansion! Free to backers!
Posted by Pandasaurus Games

So, I've been promising a surprise for the last few days, and I'm very happy to announce that we've worked everything out with our printer and will be delivering a mini-expansion for Lost Valley.

Roland and I had been planning a few little add-ons for a a while and this is a very small token of our appreciation to y'all for supporting us, for your continued patience while the game was made ready and for your continued support as we move forward with the game.

The mini-expansion is going to include 2 new triangle pieces to be incorporated into the game as well as 3 new skills to be mixed in with the rest of them.

These are the Squirrel Hunter that lets you hunt next to an animal trap even if there are no animals present (but you don't get a fur as no one wants to buy your squirrel pelt), an expert miner that makes it a bit easier to build a mine and a well builder which lets you find a water source in the middle of the wasteland so you can more easily get water to river gold.

For the new triangular pieces we have "treasure hill" which adds a fun wrinkle to the buried treasure mechanic and the "workshop" that lets you switch out your earned skills with new ones.

Most critically it will also include correctly punched versions of the two mis-punched triangles from the game, and corrected versions of the two diamonds that were printed with exclamation points instead of question marks.

Best of all these are going to be produced quickly and will be airlifted to our warehouse so we should be able to start delivering these to backers in the next few weeks if we don't have any hicups. Canadian and International backers will be getting these along-side their copies as we are getting them all "amazon ready" so that we can ship them out via the same process as your base game.

We want to apologize for the errors that made it through (some were our fault, some were not but that doesn't and shouldn't really matter to y'all since you just want to play your game), and thank you for sticking by us while we sort these issues out.

We have also had a couple of errata pop up in the rule book and a few clarification requests on some rules. I am going to have a couple of solutions to this problem. First, I will be making a new corrected digital rule book that you can download and print. I will also be creating an FAQ that can be printed and slipped into your existing rule book and lastly I will be creating a page that can be printed onto standard label sheets and stickered onto the existing rule book to correct the rulebook as it stands (or make certain rules clearer). These will be coming over the next week (errata sheet first, rulebook second, paste ups last)

Lastly, we've seen your questions regarding the count of the horse and canoe meeples. We wanted to include some extra guys in the expansion pack for backers only, but the wood sourcing is going to hold stuff up way too long (30 days minimum) so we won't be doing that because we want to get these out to you ASAP. That said, we are looking into solutions for this those who want enough to use in a 6 player game and will get those out to you down the road.

We're super excited about Lost Valley and we know a lot of you are already playing and enjoying the game, so please keep at it and let us know if you have any questions about the game and we hope everyone enjoys the game!"

Well done Nathan!! You've out done yourself. I have been along for all 3 kickstarters and I'll say this: There's been some missteps, but you seem to continue to make strides and quite honestly, I'm very happy with the games I've received. They all look beautiful and I thank you for that.

Fantastic news! Add me to the list of folks who would like additional horse/boat meeples please.

I held my breath and cut the fused triangle pieces with an exacto knife. It actually turned out quite well. Definitely an interim solution for folks who can't wait for the replacements.

Is there a plan for these replacement parts for the folks who didn't kickstart this and instead purchase from retail?

Nathan,

Thanks for this unexpected bonus. I received and punched my copy yesterday. I'm hoping to get it to the table tonight. My son has been most eager to play, and I'm expecting good things.

I'd like an answer to this as well. I have the game pre-ordered, but I would definitely want the fixed tiles.

I did the same, came out almost indistinguishable from the others, hoping it hits the table this week

Yep, we're talking to distribution now about the best way to get those to customers.
