Hello there,

Last week we played with the game and we loved it! Had I known more about the game I would have certainly backed it on KS!

Expect a nice review soon, but let me ask a question before that.

Say I bought the straddling upgrade and that I have a pawn at some tile in level B. Can I use a single movement to place it one level lower (strata C) straddling between two tiles? or the straddling is possible only when moving horizontally? The rules seem to be ok with the first one, but I just wanted to confirm so.

Thanks in advance

Hey Nushura.

Pretty cool you like the game. Pass along my
regard to your fellow players. And let me know
when the review gets out !

Rules are actually not that clear on that point.

In fact (as you later suggest) you can only end
a movement "straddling" when moving horizontally.

But if you get to buy the last Movement upgrade,
then you could go down one stratum and then move
to a "straddling" position.

Hope that clears it up !

So play we all,

BC

Thanks for the quick response.

AFAIK the review has been submitted (I have seen some pics slowly appear in BGG). May I ask how did the game fare in the sales department? It clearly deserves more attention from the community!!

You're most welcome.

Obviously, you'd get a better answer from the publisher,
but I know that the initial print run was 3000, and that
is has not sold out yet... and it's been out 10 months now.

Regardless, if the story ends there, RW has garnered mostly positive
reviews so far and as a designer, it's been pretty damn satisfying !

So play we all,

BC

Certainly! We had a lot of fun with the game...and surely more nights of fun will follow!

You have earned a spot in our "designers worth looking out for"
