Re: Tao Long Kickstarter page is live!
This looks VERY, VERY good! thumbsup

The intro and gameplay overview videos are well done, but a more detailed (slower) description of play, or a review, would be most welcome.
Play is still a bit confusing.
And, how does 3-4 player mode work?

Best wishes on the campaign!

Thank you Ray!

A review from BoardGameBrawl is coming later today, followed by others in the next few days.

The 3-4 players mode is really fun, we will explain it in our first update but basically: It is a team based game where you share your water and fire points with your partner.

Thank you for your kind wishes!

No relation. The games are completely different!

I've noticed after 3 updates there is no further information on the 3-4 player game. The above response is all I've seen mentioned on the KS comments. I know each player has their own Dragon, and they share fire/water. My main question is, does each player take their own turn, or does the Ba Gua move both dragons of a team together? I'm assuming (hoping) that each player takes a turn. Either way, how is the turn order? A team moves both dragons, then the other? Or alternating turns between players?

I really want to back this, but the 4 player mode is important to me. And depending on how it plays out it may or may not work with me and my group.

And I want to get in the Early Bird so hoping I can get a quick answer before hand.

Thanks, game looks really cool!

Hey Brad!

The 4 player expansion is a team based game.

As you already know, the teams share the fire and water stones.

Very briefly: after your play, it will be the turn of your foe, then your partner and then the other foe.

So every time you will have to be careful of the possibilities that you leave on the Bagua, and at the same time you need to think that after your enemy, your partner will play, and you don't want him to be forced to do something he can't.

If you have any other question please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for the swift reply Gonzalo!

I've no other questions right now that I need answered before I decide to back. Though I'm sure I'll have some later to post in the KS comments.

I enjoy abstract games, and the dragon theme is great too. The components all look like they'll be amazing as well! I don't have many quick team games, and this looks like it'll be an interesting one.

Thank you Daniel!

We will start production early February. Shipment is estimated for July 2017 but we are confident we can deliver before that date.

Backed! Looks awesome. Would be great to see a solo variant with some difficulty levels; a puzzle resolving or so, like the puzzle cards in Neuroshima hex... A scenario generator would also be cool. Great design!

Backed Deluxe. Can't wait.
Will there be option to add the add on's later (ie, 4 player expansion) or do I adjust my backing now with the extra money added?

Yes! You will be able to do that on Backerkit and you will be charged right before we are ready to send the game to you.

I just discovered this on Backerkit and bough the game and all the extras

How does Backerkit work? Will the items ship soon? Or will they ship after a certain cut-off to get more items produced if needed. I got a confirmation email that says
Order Lockdown
The project creator will lockdown the items to finalize item counts for manufacturing.
making me think it could be a while?

Thanks. Happy Thanksgiving!

-Robert
