So it became obvious to me that, because I wanted to combine this project with the reprint of Gloomhaven, we were rushing this game out the door to accommodate the needs of that reprint. In the end, it wasn't working for me, so I've decided to split the two projects. The reprint for Gloomhaven will go ahead as scheduled and the Kickstarter for Founders of Gloomhaven will launch afterward, ideally some time in May. Sorry for the delay, but I think it is for the best.

Will the dials be available on the kickstarter for the previous backers? I'm just trying to find something to back to get in on those scenarios!

I'm pumped for Founders though, so I'm disappointed in the delay. However, you do such great stuff that I think you should take as long as you need.

Yes, the dials and rule book/scenario book updates will be available in the Gloomhaven reprint Kickstarter. Even if you don't want either of those, I hope you will still come and participate in the new scenarios!

Ok Isaac, it's better to have a great final product then to rush things...


Do you have predictions of the two dates? April for Gloomhaven reprint and May for Founders? Both on Kickstarter?

I heard about gloomhaven and I'm very excited to get it on the reprint (any idea how long the KS will last/when can I get my hands on my copy of gloomhaven!?)

Also thanks for making a wonderful game and not trying to nickel and dime us! I'll certainly take a look at your next game to see if it interests me.

So we get to spread the cost over a longer period making it more affordable whilst also getting higher quality products at the same time. Yup, sounds ideal to me. Thanks for keeping us posted.

I applaud your decision. With this campaign now solely for Founders, you'll have a better idea of funding for Founders and can therefore better plan stretch goals for game improvements. If GH was padding the funding amount, it would be harder to plan, IMO.

Any chance of printed version of free character scenarios as add-on?

Will you be incorporating removable stickers in the reprint/second edition of Gloomhaven? I know these have been produced by a third party but it would be good to take them on board, or at least offer them as an option.

I'm also curious about the timeline for Gloomhaven's reprint. Also, will there be more retail versions available or hoping to do most of it through Kickstarter again?

hi Isaac,

do you plan to release the new rulebook and scenario also in PDF?

I wouldn't pay 10$ for a corrected version to what I have (since on PDF for me is much better

In case you add also the additional scenarios (the 17 single one, and the new 28 for the campaign) I can think to pledge for the new scenario book

PS: by the way you are great in put a delay on folders campaign instead rushing it and then delay just the production :-)

I just want to say that if it's an option I would totally pay extra for an extra-large copy of the scenario book - say, the size of those big road map books. My biggest challenge with this game so far, aside from packing it up, is figuring out which monsters are which in the current book.

This would be great!

(I do see the irony in asking for more scenarios to be printed despite the fact that I've barely scratched the surface of the base game scenarios. What can I say? I like this game and I'm excited for more content.)

Dude, can't you read the subject line??! MAY! They just didn't say in which year. ;-)

Kidding. I'd also be curious to know the state of things.

For what I've heard, Isaac will be working on the Kickstarter page this week.

Rahdo is already playing the game for a few weeks now. For the runthrough video... so. It's got to be close!
