It's Friday! I hope everyone's had an awesome week!

Now that we've previewed all of Series 3:

It's time for the other super fun announcement: an entire bonus additional series based on... Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar!

I hadn't planned on this series, but Restoration Games shot me an email saying they'd done this really neat art, and thought it might fit well in our artist series. I checked it out, and thought, huh, it would! These illustrations are amazing! Why not?

So, here we go, five new prints expertly crafted by Heather Vaughan, Lyall McCarthy, Nick Nazzaro, Kyle Ferrin, and Kwanchai Moriya!

The only kicker with these prints is that, since the collaboration just kind of came about after the fact, the artwork was only commissioned at a size that was less than what we order for ourselves. So, the maximum size of these prints is 16x24 rather than 24x36.

And, with that, preorders are now open!

During this preorder window, which closes in August 23rd, you'll be able to order prints from any series in a variety of sizes. Once the preorder window closes, it will take 1-2 months to receive the prints. At that time, we'll have all prints available for purchase at the 12x18 size.

I hope you've enjoyed checking these out as much as I enjoy working with the artists on them. Such a fun project, and glad to be able to offer them!

Maybe I’ll get one just for the nostalgia factor having enjoyed the original when I was young, but not having any interest in the new version.

Gosh, I really hope that you continue this series. I love the showcase of art styles profusely, and the Fireball Island set is staggeringly well put together (though as above, I do wish I care about the game at all to dedicate the wall-space ).

These look great, I enjoy seeing them. Unfortunately they are way outside what I'm willing to spend for a poster print.

I get it, but...

The price of one game.

It cost me a LOT more to get mine framed.

I understand the business reasons behind it but...

I would LOVE a way to mix & match the "bundle" deals. Of the 12 prints available (17 if you include the FI ones) there are around 8 I would love to get, but they're spread out over all three series. So I have to buy them individually and pay more than otherwise.

Edit: This also means I'm much less likely to order all the ones I "want".

yeah pretty much how I feel, I understand that only buying 1-2 isn't cost prohibitive, but there are a solid 5-6 of them I'd like to get in one big swoop, but I doubt I'll do that at 30 a pop
