Hello,

Since the Kickstarter will start probably this weekend, can you tell us when the actual game will be available?

Thanks
Marco

We want to print the game in two phase:
1) Smal volume of production - before Spiel'16 Essen( Yes! The game should be available for backers who will be visiting the 2016 Essen Spiel Board Game Fair)
2) Biger volume of production- after Spiel'16(Estimated time for our game to be delivered to your houses is February 2017)

I assume you meant February 2017. Unless you have some new time travel device I'm unaware of.

So you basically are already at the printers while you are running the Kickstarter? At least that's what I have to assume if you want to be ready for Essen...

What about Stretch Goals, how would they work if you are already printing?

And what about the version that includes the figures? Will that be for pick up at Essen, too?

Here is the preliminary schedule with the campaign start date changed according to your suggestions:

1. On the 9th of July at the latest we will publish the beta version of rulebook and ask you to report any bugs in it

2. On the same day we will provide you with the link to the project site, again asking you to report any bugs. Although we have hired native speakers, mistakes may happen.

3. On the 11th of July Kickstarter action will launch. The precise time is not known yet. By that time we hope to have professional videos with explanation of the game rules from Board Game Brawl and Box of Delights. We also hope to have a video from Rahdo Runs Through by the end of campaign.

4. The action is going to last 21 days at the most. We hope the game gets funded soon and during the campaign we should be able to prepare the final look of game components to print.

5. Production should start at the beginning of September and will be divided into two steps:

a.limited number of copies (of both editions - with and without miniatures) for the backers who will have chosen the personal game reception at the Essen Spiel and also for anyone who would like to buy a copy there. We will do everything we can to make it happen. We hope to be able to manufacture all items of the reached stretch goals, well, perhaps except for the space flight.

b.right after Essen Spiel all the remaining copies will be produced and sent to backers. You should receive them by the end of February, 2017.

There is also a more optimistic estimation that everything will be done by the end of this year. It all depends on the manufacturing and logistics issues.

And there is a pessimistic vision in which the game does not get funded. In that case only a prototype will be displayed during Essen Spiel. And the campaign will return as soon as we have a new, better version of the game for you. But we deeply believe it will not come to that.

As promised, we are giving you the link to the project preview. You can also find the English rulebook there. We are waiting for your remarks.

Please note, that rulebook may have errors. If you have any remarks regarding the it, please report them to us. During the action the rulebook will be checked by a native and published again.

A few important pieces of information:
1. Start of the action at 11 a.m., NY time, on 11th of July 2016
2. There is a good chance that right after the game gets funded, another action will start in Poland on the local crowdfunding portal. The collected money will be added to KS, which will result in reaching subsequent stretch goals faster. Large part of Polish gamers does not use KS, and we would really like to have the project supported as much as possible. We hope you like the idea.devil
