Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2
We've got a KS Coin to spare as of this post! Let's start planning! There's a new room added now, which has space for 1 King, 1 Princess and 1 Serf. A Coffer can also be placed on the room.

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2
We should place as much meeples (kings, princesses, knights), items (serf, coffer) and rooms as possible on the ground tile, because building the next floor just brings the opportunity to build on instead of any "real" stretch goals.
So before building pillars I would suggest to put a second room on the ground floor and then on day 3 go on with the meeples...

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2
Could we have a weird princess? Like a ninja princess or so? Or a hermione Gringer princess?
The type of princess that would cook the frog with a lot of garlic rather than kiss it?
Just because even princesses ought to get bored of pink & being pretty one day

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2
If my logic is correct, given the current 3 SG in each category:

Quote:
Functionality:
- We need 3 princesses (9 coins) or 6 knights (12 coins) per Function SG. totalling 9 princesses (27 coins) or 18 knights (36 coins) for all 3 SGs.

- From the little rooms tile shown, it seems that most, if not all rooms can only accommodate at most 1 of each non-serf characters; some rooms can take between 1-3 serfs.

- Assuming we get lucky whereby all rooms can accommodate princesses, we'll need at least 9 rooms.

Quote:
New:
- We need 1 Room (5 coins), or 3 kings (3 coins) per new SG; to unlock all 3 we'll need 3 Rooms or 15 kings

Given the need of 9 rooms minimum, there's no reason to go for Kings. Also unless we have an abundant knight spaces, it's always better to go for princess for Function SGs

Quote:
Visual:
- We need 6 serfs (6 coins) or 9 coffers (9 coins) per Visual SG, totalling 18 serfs or 27 coffers for all 3 SG.

Given the need of 9 rooms minimum, we can invest in 9 coffers for 1 Visual SG. While serfs are better in return, they're more susceptible to random rooms

Quote:
Pillars & Tiles:
To hold up the 9 rooms, we'll need at least 5 building tiles (5 coins), each will 2 room space; as well as 4 pairs of pillars (4 coins). These can be bought only when needed.


Conclusion:
- Since the 9 rooms are the only certain factor, it might be best to invest in them first to see what character space we may have. However this would be a bad if we ended up having a lack of KS coins to spend, as the rooms would go to waste. Also there is no need to get Kings at all, as 3 rooms is enough to unlock all the NEW SGs.

- Princesses > Knights, as both are equally subjected to random room cards. However only invest in them once there's enough room spaces for sets of 3 princesses or 6 knights, else we run a risk of wasting.

- Serf vs Coffers are subjected to random room cards, & thus should be placed aside first. Only invest in 6 serfs when we accumulated room spaces for them, else there's no need to buy even 1.

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2

Wow we have a serious eurogamer right here LOL!

But back to the voting, it seems to have taken a rather interesting turn! As I said previously, there is no 'WRONG' or 'RIGHT'. As it is now, we will very likely be getting pillars first, followed by a princess, and then saving the rest for a room!

I just checked the campaign, and it seems we are just into the 29K mark! That's gonna net us yet another 3 KS Coins. We already have 1 in the bank, so that would be a total of 4 to splurge with!

Hahaha an euro game within an euro-dexterity game
But yeah one of the benefits I ignored is the benefit of going for “short term goals" like princess and pillar: they're much more attainable & gives a sense of progression, which may attract more people to jump on board as the goal is that much closer (as compared to having a stockpile of stuff but no actual progress to show for )

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 2
OKAY we are done for Day 2!

1 Princess & a pair of Pillars. Trading in all 4 Coins!

P.S: Just realized we can keep these all into 1 single same thread.

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 3

This feels a little strange. We already have 1 Pillar in the reserve. You guys sure you wanna go for another pair? I was thinking more room or tile...

Could you please quote in the first post the rooms, meeples and items already build in the mini game castle as well.
Just the points for each of the three SG categories is sufficient to know what to build next, but for the imagination of the castle their furnishings and guests might be good to know

Edit: Realized that there is a nice picture of everything at the kickstarter campaign page, so nevermind

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 4

And so Day 4 begins! We have as a community decided to save up our 3 Coins for 2 more and get THAT Room. So be it!

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 5

As of the end of Day 4, we have 8 KS Coins in total. We took a Room, a pair of pillars and a Tile.

Let's go! What's next?? A Knight perhaps? A serf? You decide!

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 5
Is there any reason why there's no room option for day 5?

Also just a suggestion but it might be good to have a reference for the trade-able items here as well

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 5

We have 2 Coins. Seems that the community wants to save up for a Room. That's 3 Coins missing - it might take a while since this is the lull period now, but hey let's do that!

I myself will be voting for a Serf, though a Knight looks pretty good too.

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 6

In spite of a rather slow Day 6, we are looking very positively on the number of Castle Dukes fans at 72! That means just EIGHT MORE fans to get 3 whopping free Coins! And seems that Knight is probably what the community is looking for, followed by a princess - these are all only after we get that room up (which will happen once we hit another 8 more fans!)

Re: KS Mini Game Thread Day 8

For a day in the lull period, we are doing pretty good with another KS Coin earned

And we have that inevitable 3 more Coins coming our way with just 1 more Fan of Castle Dukes!!

Thank you everyone for playing our minigame thus far!

We will be putting this minigame away now in favor of the more familiar stretch goal chart.
