Just wondering when we receive the game are you going to look at all the artwork first or will you set up game play and leave it as a surprise as much as possible during play through??

This feels like when I was younger and on a car journey and used to ask "are we there yet?" Is it May yet Tristan?? whistle

I'll probably quickly shuffle through the art, and then make sure my first game will have sufficient time to sit and really examine the cards as they come up.

After that first game I'll probably go through each card just to see everything because I won't want to leave it to chance that I'll see it all eventually.

So close now guys. We've done about 20 hours of demoing in the last 2 days at Airecon in Harrogate and the reaction to the art and the gameplay has been nothing short of insane.
Thanks so much for the support to everyone who came and to those of you still patiently waiting to play. I'll try to post some more pictures on our facebook page tomorrow too!
Sleep now though... snore

1. Sleeve all cards.
2. Play a demo game to learn the rules.
3. Think about stuff...
4. Play it again.

You'd better hope the gloom doesn't grow while you sleep. I'll stand guard while you rest.

Glad I ordered 2 copies. I'm flippin' one of these Mo-Fo's!!

As for the original question. I will let the game reveal the art to me at its own pace.

I think I'm going to dive right into playing the game and then enjoy the artwork over a longer period of time as it is slowly revealed to me.

I'm really looking forward to playing Gloom of Kilforth. Not long to wait now!

Not too many though don't want too many spoilers Soooo looking forward to this game.

Ooh also Tristan, did you say that the art is quite far on with 1066 so when you launch the kickstarter we should get the game quicker??

We had about 3% of the art finished by the end of the GoK Kickstarter, we're currently at about 15% of the art complete for 1066 (depending on stretch goal unlocks) and we haven't kickstarted yet, plus 1066 needs less art than GoK. But my funds aren't unlimited so we really need to hit that Kickstarter goal to complete the game.

We will do our best, can imagine most of GOK supporters will back :-)

Fingers crossed the GoK backers return in droves. 1066 is quite a different beast. But I think once you all see what's in the box for GoK you'll know we've got your backs when it comes to game development.

I must say that 1066 isn't the game theme that I would usually go for, but I trust that it will be fab. Also you threw in solo surprise

And the Solo is great. Definitely a great game to throw down on the table that won't take too long to finish but tests you everytime you play.

Yeah, the gameplay is a lot faster than GoK, and 1066 is steeped in actual historical events, but in any case we have Ania still so I expect you to all turn up sharpish on Day 1!

There may be a GoK backer discount too... whistle
