The mini game could be a little complicated to understand at first.

Here is where you can ask questions about how it works! And better yet, discuss among ourselves where we should go from here. It is going to be totally disastrous if we find ourselves in situations where we have items in our inventory but we cannot place them down!

Do we need to buy a tile at the start or is one given?

AS COPIED FROM THE KS PROJECT UPDATE#2 **********

I copied and pasted the info for everyone's easy reference since we're going to be voting on the minigame over quite a few days. Maybe the project creators will have a more polished post later on Cheers!


Hello Dukes & Duchesses!

Thank you for waiting for this Update! We apologize for taking this long, but it is for a valid reason. Several hours ago when we hit the funding, we thought long and hard on how to make this journey fun and engaging for all of our backers here. This is when it gets really EXCITING! The answer? We are going to play a mini-game together!

After funding at 20K, we are going to be building up a Castle Tower right HERE on the Kickstarter page. We will start with just 1 base Floor Tile as a foundation to the Tower itself. How do we earn items to add onto this Tower? We earn KS Coins. There are two ways to earn KS Coins - either completing a Challenge (3 Coins) or clear a $1,000 funding block (1 Coin). As of this post we stand at $22,700. That means we have 2 KS Coins ready to be used!! Another $300 more and we will have a total of 3 KS Coins to use. If we complete Challenges, there's even more to use too!

Right, that all sounds so complicated though! So what do we do again after we trade KS Coins in for items? Simple. We will build the Tower right here. There's 3 different categories at the moment, each with up to 3 Stretch Goals as of now, making it a total of NINE stretch goals! A category level will be hit at 3 POINTS. Each time we hit a category level, we unlock a Stretch Goal and we get that benefit for everyone, yipee~! What's the Stretch Goals? We are not telling you yet muahahahah! You get them only as they unlock, nothing before! But to be fair, here's a hint of each category so you can wrap your creative minds around and conjure a vague idea!



HOW-TO-PLAY:

You need to have a BoardGameGeek (BGG) account to play this mini game with us. If you do not, it is very easy to create one. Of course, you can just watch from the sidelines and enjoy the journey just as much, but its definitely more fun if you participate actively!
Log in with your BGG account, and go to our BGG page Castle Dukes. The link is here for your quick reference: (CLICK HERE)
Locate the general forum of Castle Dukes in the same page. Enter the KS Mini-Game thread. Vote for the item you want to spend the KS Coin on! We will follow majority and trade the items in accordingly!

Challenges:

These grant us 3 KS Coins! There's not many to complete, but each is worth a lot:

ML Facebook Has 500 Likes (CLICK HERE)
ML Twitter Has 850 Followers (CLICK HERE)
BGG Castle Dukes Has 50 Fans (CLICK HERE)
Youtube Has 200 Subscribers (CLICK HERE)

From the voting it seems that should we have the coins we would buy the most voted item, following by the 2nd & so on...

Would there be a way for us to instead choose to buy multiples of the most voted item? Ie 2 princesses, 2 rooms etc

The only way to do that is to have another 7 or 8 more entries in the voting poll with 2x princesses, 2x Knights etc.

Let's implement that in the next refresh

Hmm how about a matrix of choice poll like this one? With rules stating that you can only vote up to the amount of coins left that day

Poll
What do we go for next? (Day X - 5 coins)
  1 2 3 4 5
Serf (1 coin)
Coffer (1 coin)
Knight (2 coins)
Princess (3 coins)
King (1 coin)
Room (5 coins)
Pillars (1 coin)
Tile (1 coin)
      0 answers
Poll created by genesyx



The downside would be reminding people to leave blank for each of the non-selected options (or you can add a 0 option), as well as hoping people would obey the rule of voting up to number of coins available

We did think of this, but as you said, most won't really read everything HAHA! And they would like overvote etc.
