I create this post to follow the development of the game called Prehistory. Time by time I will try to summarize the milestones that the game's development achieve. Not intend to have long and boring description, just tell a few words about what happened lately during the design process.

These are my personal notes, but I'm opened to have a real conversation about the game, if anyone have questions.

- I finished the current graphical update on the prototype. Also applied some minor changes in the gameplay and in balance.
2017.10.06
- We had some major test with the newest prototype. We also tested a mechanism to keep the action/pricing tiles more stable on the boards. The solution works well. We will upload some real life pictures later.
2017.10.07
- Today I finished a rendered setup, using the current prototype graphics. I just uploaded 4 from these to BGG. Now I continue with the rulebook...

- Nearly 50% of the graphical editing is ready for the current rulebook. Probably we can start the English translation on the next week, so we can have a public version soon.
And uhh, I just did a calculation. Currently we have 455 components in the game...

Are you going to be playtesting on Tabletopia, or will it be just be accessable as a pre release way to play the game?

It will be testable. We have to learn and test the system, so at first only based on invites. But later probably there will be an open test setup.

French rules will be included by default as always (language independent). Lately we worked with Pixie several times, I think that will be the case this time too.

Here is the link: http://a-games.hu/jatekok/temp/prehistorytest.html
- It is not the latest, but the gameplay is the same (especially as Tabletopia is manually played). The latest version has several graphical update, also some balance (mostly with cards).
- The English rulebook is currently being updated to the latest version (0.9). Some minor change were made above on the component's pictures.

Edit: Just uploaded the 0.9 English rules to our homepage (our translator will check it later for mistakes): http://a-games.hu/downloads/Prehistory_0.9ENG.pdf

Kickstarter is looking great! Any chance of having slightly different player colours to the resources (or vice-versa)?

Possible, but that is only a cosmetic change before the production.
