Potential backer here.

Just watched Rahdo's runthrough.

Will the game be shipped with pointy corners on the cards? I really like the game, this is pretty much the only thing that is even remotely off-putting. I will likely back it either way, but it is a concern for me.

Remember it was a prototype. Very few card games nowadays use square corners. Except VPG unfortunately.

VPG's recent efforts have much nicer rounded corners. Must have upgraded their card cutters.

Unlikely. I backed Isaac's Forge War, and the cards in that have rounded corners. It's probably down to it being a prototype.

Sorry for the off-topic, but the biggest problem that I've found with the new VPG cards is that, even thought they now have rounded corners, they haven't really standardized them for consistency. This is painfully obvious when incorporating expansion cards into existing games...

Thanks for the quick responses!

Another quick question about the cards: I noticed there was a lot of blank space on the items. Is that going to be filled sometimes? Or is it blank for a reason?

It is for drawing your own images of the weapons, since it's a legacy game afterall....

No problem. He will probably need to burn the card at some point anyway laugh
