New Character tiles - Kickstarter Exclusive tiles are now marked in red
New design for the Noble tiles!
New design for the action disks!

 And, of course, the map too has been updated:

Here's a mockup of the map. Yes, it's pretty huge :)

Production update and Pledge Manager inquiries
about 2 months ago – Tue, Aug 25, 2020 at 03:44:05 AM

Hello Backers!

First of all, a little update from our manufacturing partner; they just sent us some late-development prototypes for the plastic elements. Please note that they are 3D printed, not mass produced! We approved them, so they'll build the mold - a process that will take 60 days or so. We are pretty intrigued by the result!

Pledge Manager and Language selecion: the surveys are almost complete, thank you for your cooperation! In the past weeks, some backers asked about more specific language selection for countrues that have multiple official languages. For Canada, for example, is pretty easy; since Intrafin will take care of fulfillment there, official language is French. So you can freely choose between French or English.

However some countries have different languages; also, some of you are living abroad and asked for a specific language, different from the country the live in or english.

For any request regarding your copy's language, please write to and tell us what language you'd like to have.

Shipping fees: we read that some backers are complaining for the shipping fees. First of all, please note that we kept fees for the core game exacly as we published during the campaign.

As for shipping fees for add on, we managed to keep them as low as possible, taking in consideration the current covid situation. Fees are higher than possibly expected, with unexpected surcharges and, for some countries, we couldn't lower them as much as we hoped. Particularly for the US, since we don't have a retail partner there and we completely need to fulfill the orders from here, the fees you see are the bare minimum for fulfillment, without afding the freight cost. The same goes for Asia South America.

We hope you understand the situation.

Thank you so much, stay safe!

Pledge Manager ready - Smoke Test underway
3 months ago – Wed, Jul 29, 2020 at 07:41:04 PM

Hello backers,

first of all, I wanted to apologise for the terrible delay with the Pledge Manager. We are ready now, got approval from Backerkit today and we can proceed with a quick Smoke Test.

For those of you not familiar with this procedure, the Smoke Test is a pre-opening of the Pledge Manager in which only the 5% of the backers will receive their survey. This way we can track down any strange behaviour of the pledge manager.

The Smoke Test will run for 24 hours, so if you didn't recieved your survey yet don't worry, it will arrive by tomorrow!

We'll also launch the late pladge by Monday, August 3rd.

Thank you for your patience and see you on Backerkit!
