Just curious if there are any updates on the release. I'm more surprised there are not any pictures of the actually board or accessories. Getting a little worried somethings gone wrong with no updates in a long time.

thanks

There was an update on Kickstarter about a month ago. The illustrations and graphics are progressing along very nicely. I honestly didn't expect the visuals to change at all, so it was a nice surprise for me. The game is looking better than ever, and I'm really excited to get my hands on it!

I recall in the update that the units got a graphic overhaul.

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

+1 concerned Kickstarter

Any more idea of a print or ship date?

I'm not concerned. Anxious maybe, but not concerned.

The projected release date is still a ways off (March 2012). I suspect we'll see another update in January, but that's just a guess of course.

I'm looking forward to opening the box without seeing all the spoilers. Part of a board gamers charm I guess. I have a feeling I am going to be very pleasantly surprised. surprise

Here's the quick intermediate update:

A few weeks back I got the final art candidates back for EVERYTHING - all the missing gaps, from Allan. The veteran playtesters were rounded up and tried it out with playing the candidate-final map, etc. They spotted about half a dozen little fixes left to make. It's small-ish changes: Make the hills in the hill provinces less dark so the borders between hill provinces aren't hidden by that darkness, change this one border to better show that these two provinces are neighbors, make the forest provinces more green so they contrast more from the farm provinces, that sort of thing. I've routed those back to Allan, but he's fallen off the grid during the holidays and I'm anxious to hear back from him as well.

There's some background chatter with printers in the meanwhile, but that's at a low gear until the final-final art is in place. Given that it's now December and we still aren't to the printers, the March launch is going to slip.

So close. So close.

Appreciate the update, Sam.

The push-back is regretable, but as the game just keeps getting better and better over time (by the sounds of it), it will be well worth the wait.

Merry Christmas! Enjoy the holidays, Sam!

I just stopped by the page and noticed that there hasn't been an update in a while. Just in case there's anyone following this thread who isn't a Kickstarter backer, there's a world-readable post with photos of the first copy here:
