Updates:

24 hours

Well, those were some exciting 24 hours!

First of all, a big thank you to all of our backers to this point. It is one thing to work on a game for such a long time and having fun playing it with friends and family, but to see how so many people are just as excited about our project, who did not even have the chance to play it yet, is just amazing.

However, we have also received some feedback about concerns you guys have, so we also want to address those.

Shipping into the US is quite pricey, even though a lot of our Backers come from the US. We are currently in contact with a couple of shipping companies to see if there is anything we can do. But so far it usually comes down to the amount of packages we ship at one time, and currently it is just not enough to make a real difference. Just like you, we are hoping that this changes throughout the campaign, but we really do not want to make any promises we cannot keep.

There is no gameplay video! The thing is, we do not really have a very pretty printed version of our game, really just our DIY kind of Prototype we have been using for testplaying. So we did not really want to ruin the impression of all our beautiful artworks by showing of that thin right away. However a lot of you guys would like to see some gameplay, as it is rather hard to imagine a real round of Valhal just from the Rulebook. So we decided to produce such a video. It will not be pretty, but it will be informative, so stay tuned!

More languages! A lot of you guys ask for more languages (especially spanish), and we would love to fulfill you this wish, but translators usually are an expensive bunch of people, which is why we had to set a stretch goal for translations. However, sometimes you find the right people, like the guys of Dice Cultural in Portugal, who offered to translate our rulebook into portuguese.

German Version. The biggest amount of Backers comes from our home country Germany, and there were quite some requests for a full german Version because of that. Of course we are in constant conference with our producer to see what we can do on this front, but just once more, it comes down to the amount of games we will produce, so be assured we are trying to work something out, but we can't promise anything at this point.

Print and Play. Well, another request following our shipping fee was the one for a Print and Play Version. We thought about this before starting the campaign, and really could not immagine how anyone could enjoy a print and play version of our game. Over 160 cards and endless tokens, also the game requires D3 to be played properly, a lot of people also don't have those (and using D6 as replacements is really annoying, trust us, we did that for way to many times in our early test games). So really, we still don't see much of a point in having our game as P&P, but let us know your opinion! If there are really a lot of people interested in such a thing, we'll look into that.

Looking forward to another 28 days, and once again thank you for all of your support!

Portuguese Download Edition


Attention portuguese Backers! Thanks to www.dicecultural.org we can offer you the rulebook as a translated download version after the Kickstarter campaign.

Spanish Download Edition


Thanks to Alfonso Moles Sánchez we are now also able to make the .pdf version of our rulebook available in SPANISH after the campaign ends.

So the first 48 hours are over and we have reached 25% of our goal! Big thanks to all of you guys supporting our project, keep on spreading the word!

As you requested we made a gameplay video, showing you the first year of a round of Valhal, going through some of the basic game mechanics. Now you can have a better look at how the actual game works, instead of just reading the rulebook. We also plan on bringing you some short spotlight videos in the next few days, to give you an in-depth look at some advanced game mechanics.

Unfortunately we do not have any news regarding the US-Shipping, but be assured that we are in contact with several companies, to get a good deal for you. As almost one third of our backers come from North America, we are confident that we can present you a solution in the next few days.

Some of you asked for bulk orders. We knowingly renounced from adding a lot of bulk order options into our pledge list, so people don't get too overwhelmed with loads of options, that really aren't options, just bulk orders. But if you would like more bulk pledges, please let us know in the comments or message us. Of course we can also work out a good deal for bigger bulks.

Last but not least, you can now find Valhal on BoardGameGeek, so feel free to check it out!

Seems odd you don't have any reviews?
