Dear backers and fans of City Council,

I wish to post this update/news feed on both our KS page and o​n BGG.

We just finished all production related ​t​o the new expansion for City Council - The Disaster Deck.

The Disaster Deck is a long waited expansion that was funded through our fan base​,​ as we did not raise enough funds to produce it​ through KS​.

This expansion changes the game entirely as it introduce​s​ a new exciting Co-op game-play.

You will need a full copy of City Council in order to play the Disaster Deck game mode.

I wish to get the help of our dedicated supporters once more and to ask if you can help us proof read/ inspect the rules that we posted ​o​n this link:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/7botp7spks8ayqy/DISASTER%20RULES%2...

This rules are ​almost final​, and we just want to check them with seasoned players to get one final feedback before ​they hit the print run.

We w​ill gather your thoughts and valuable feedback for the next few days so we can have the best ​possible ​rule set for your expansion.

We scheduled ​the print run on ​the second week of March. We expect to finish it within days and start the fulfillment phase a couple ​of ​weeks later (​e​nd of March).

We hope that you can appreciate the extra time that we put ​i​n the development and production of The Disaster Deck so you - the fans - can have the best game that we can produce.

I wish to thank all of you for the ongoing support​.​

Yours,

Elad

Lookin' good! A few questions/potential clarifications:

d10-1 I'd assume that players no longer have favor cards in hand, and that the only favor cards that can be scored are the face-up ones, right?
d10-2 Is there a limit to how many favor cards can be face up? Do you have to discard unfulfilled favor cards or something of the sort?
d10-3 Say there's a favor card which can be scored, but which could potentially be scored later for a bigger reward. Who chooses whether to score it or not?
d10-4 Can the role cards be used also with the base (competitive) game? They seem like a nice variant.
d10-5 Can the Disaster Deck be used to play the game solo?

Cheers

Correct.

I will add a line at the end of a round that will make this point a bit more clear. but usually, the favor cards that is active are either score you point or removed from the game by the end of that round.

Please read my previous answer ^

You can try them as a variant to skip the Committees phase and make the game faster and smoother (and also with less debates whistle).

Of course. You only need to juggle between all the roles yourself.

Thanks for the questions and feedback.

Very important to me and for the fans of City Council.

Will this be available on BGG store? I'm not the original backer, got a used KS copy recently. I would like to have the disaster deck too.

We just changed the status to "order"

Shipping will begin shortly.

I will post a nice digital version of the new rules (co-op) here and over our website.

Thanks for the support,

Elad

We have not receive them at our warehouse as of yet.

They are stuck in a regular customs check

I will have some copies with me while I am travelling to Gencon next week.

I hope that we can ship all copies by the start of August.

I will send personal emails to each and every one of you once your copy is on it's way.

Sorry for the delays.

Elad

I have not backed the Kickstarter, but would love to add the Disater Deck to City Council. Will it be possible to acquire the Disaster Deck at Essen in a few months (if you/Golden Egg Games will be at Essen of course)?
