How will this mini-expansion be available?
Kickstater, BGG Store, or other?

Thanks

We're working through the details of a Kickstarter right now as art is being generated.

I'm curious... What are your thoughts or expectations? Cheers!

Can't wait! KF is still my all time favorite game and will buy "Gold" as soon as it is available (or the Kick starter goes up)! "Gold" seems like a nice safe and obvious choice I guess, I love it! I did not see Nick Sibickys name on any credits though whats up with that? Is he retiring from his baby?!

Greeting Andre, I hope your Infinity is still Limited? (that's a joke about one of Nick's other games, Farlight)

I share your passion for King's Forge!

Nick is focusing on his other designs right now, but he's aware of gold dice and a goal of completing the entire Craft items from rank 0 to 135. He's given me advice on crafting formulas that has been indispensable.

The content for Gold came out of a contest on the Game Salute podcast, Life and Times of a Board Game, announced in January 2016 (Episode 5). As you know (since you won that contest), the contest was to suggest new materials for King's Forge. My submission showed some potential and I started talking with a member of the Game Salute team. Last year at Gen Con I pitched a full expansion idea based on that original submission. Gold was a small part of that content that I will be showcasing at Gen Con this year prior to taking it all to Kickstarter. We felt Gold would make for an exciting and accessible introduction of new ideas for King's Forge.

Chris I noticed you also designed some Duke promo tiles (my second favorite game) that is awesome! Was that a contest too?

You have good taste!

The Long Bowman in the base game was a Kickstarter backer contest that I won. The Lancer came out of a series of recommendations I made for convention promos (that was a "free" lancer for tournament participants... get it, free lancer?). I'm also did some development for the Siege Engine set. The Duke is great game and I connected with Catalyst because I met them at a convention and they needed some Kickstarter support when they first started.

I love how Kickstarter can connect people. My connection to King's Forge actually started during the initial Kickstarter. David MacKenzie and Nick did a fantastic great job of backer involvement with that campaign and were very responsive to suggestions.
