Hi,

The game is still planned to be released in the 4th quarter of this year.

The illustrator is working very hard on all the graphics. Rio Grande Games sent me an example of one of the illustrations to share with you.

I hope you like it!

That's it? Really? A pair of boots?



So there's no chance to get the game in Essen I guess.

No Epoch is not going to make it to Essen this year.

I also have a bow for you by the way.

Nope. Still unclear. But seeing the progress, I can say it will be within a few months from now.

As a little bandaid, I can show you the status counters.

Punchboards ready!

While everybody else was having a holiday, Michiel (who is responsible for the layout of #EpochEarlyInventors) has been working very hard to get the punch boards ready. I have included two examples:

The basket, which gives you +2 food when gathering and enables you to carry 2 extra resources when walking.



And tanning, which enables you to turn skins into hides.



Next step will be the game rules and appendix.

I know it is taking longer than you hoped for. This is due to all the small details we have to take care of. But imho the game is gonna look great and will be a pleasure to play.

No publication date yet, but it will definitely be the first half of this year!

No idea. That's Rio Grandes decision.

Not yet. There seems to be a problem with the pawns. And the box is not yet ready.

As soon as I know more, I will let you know!

Unfortunately we found some minor mistakes in the game rules and appendix just before we wanted to send all files off to the printer. So the printing got delayed 3 weeks.

I am afraid it will not be in Essen this year.

I am sorry to hear that, Martyn... I know how important a release on the fair is to a game...

Any chance on a demo on the fair?

No, no demo-ing this year.

You will just have to be patient.

I'll keep asking every year.

Who knows? Maybe I might even play the game some day.

Hi everybody,

I know I am long overdue on filling you in about the production of Epoch - Early Inventors.

In August we finished all the files for the printer.

In October Rio Grande Games received the playing pieces for the game. Unfortunately there was a color difference among the different kind of pieces. Both Rio Grande and I wanted this game to be perfect, so they have to be redone.

Last month the printer needed some changes to the files (not enough room between some of the elements on the die cut boards). Those changes have been made, so hopefully they can go on and print the game now.

Release of the game will be early next year, if all goes well. Which I really hope it does!

Thanks for your patience
Martyn
