So when are we going to find anything out about this game? So far the only thing I’ve heard about this game is what is posted on this geekpage and the little that’s a Brandon Sanderson has said about it at his signings- namely that it’s supposedly some sort of war game based on the Shattered Plains.

He also said that he asked the developers to hold off on launching the Kickstarter campaign until his other game campaign (Mistborn: House War) was finished. Well, copies of that game will soon be arriving for the last of the backers still waiting for them, but I haven’t heard anything about The Way of Kings game (is thy even it’s offiical title?) or when it will be going to Kickstarter or anything.

Basically: I’m really excited for this game and want to know when it will be coming.

I am looking forward to this as well but I hope it it more than just RISK re-skin.

More importantly, will this include Bridge Team Miniatures? If they are just cardboard punchouts I will be disappointed.

Considering the design team behind this, I would suspect that is far from the case.

Let’s be honest, even if it were just a Risk re-skin then I would still buy it, and most of you who are reading this would too. Fortunately, just from the brief description that the designers have already posted its clear that it won’t be a Risk re-skin.

Well they have to save something for the Kickstarter stretch goals and/or future expansions. Personally I’m hoping for more than 4 High Princes to play as, just for variety.

It's definitely not a risk clone lol.
We're huge fans and want to do right by the source material. Well as much as you can get to in 1 game that is.
Matt made me cut out the part where you pause the game and sketch each other....

The news is that it's in the development cycle with Mayday. They're working dev and art etc now. I'm not sure about their specifics timeline wise.

Thanks for the response! Might I ask, what are the steps in the process going forward? At what point in the process does it go to Kickstarter?

I actually don't know. We're pretty much design only on this one so far. Not in on logistics.

Oh okay. Time to start infiltrating Mayday Games’ headquarters then I guess. (EDIT: And a quick search online revealed that Mayday Games’ HQ is only about 40 minutes from where I live... hmmm.... ninja )

Just as long as you included a mechanic for pooping in your shardplate we’ll be good. It wouldn’t be authentic otherwise...













(Joking! JOKING! I don’t actually want a poop mechanic. Eww. )

Pooping mechanics are my shtick, so Matt and Ben can't steal it.

So things have been quiet for several months... any news to report? Is this still going to make it to Kickstarter this year?

The Reckoners Kickstarter is going to be delivered within the next month or so, so then the way is clear as far as Sanderson-related Kickstarter projects go...
