I hope you had a great week and that you are now fully enjoying the weekend 😊 We are today at the Boardgame Brunch of the Boardgame-Event-Organizer “Mannsgöggeli” (Swiss word for “Meeple”) in Luzern. Brunch, board games, good conversations, etc. what more could you want on a Sunday?
First a few success messages 😀 We have now exceeded the 80’000 CHF, have more than 1000 backers in our crew and are today the “Project of the day” and thus worldwide on the homepage of Kickstarter!!! I couldn’t be happier, a gigantic “Thank You” to every single one of you. You made this possible!
Before I go into the newly achieved Stretch Goal, a quick look back 😊 in the last update you could vote on which of the three flying dinosaurs – (A) Tupandactylus (B) Pterodaustro (C) Caulkicephalus – should be drawn by Rozenn to become a part of the game.
Here are the results:
(A) 63% Tupandactylus, (B) 35% Pterodaustro, (C) 2% Caulkicephalus
(B) and (C) unfortunately had no chance against the majestic crest of Tupandactylus, which will now be beautifully illustrated by Rozenn. (B) and (C) are added to the proposal list i.e. to the list of those animal species which might still get a chance to be included in the game 😊 If you also miss animal species in the game which are important to you, just send me a mail/write a comment, then I will integrate them into the proposal list (HERE – in this Dropbox – you can find a list of all species already in the game). A big thank you to everyone who took part in this poll 😊
Now we come to the 5th Stretch Goal which was reached today – “Ultimate Defense”! This is definitely one of my favorite Stretch Goals and I am just super happy that all these fascinating “master of defense” species will now be part of the game!
With the achievement of this Stretch Goal a new poll was unlocked. You may decide whether Rozenn should draw…
(A) Rough-skinned newt or (B) Cane Toad
as a “small body card” 😊 The ballot boxes are open until Monday 12:00pm (CET), just place your vote below this update (in the comment section). It would be awesome to have as many backers as possible participating in this poll. I’ve already seen some “Team Newt” followers in the comments section 😉
The next Stretch Goal (Nr. 6) is called “Fancy” 🙂 Hopefully they will all also be unlocked as soon as possible!
Last Thursday we visited the only boardgame coffee shop in Zurich – the “Du bisch dra”. The challenge we faced was, who wins a game of Darwin’s Choice against us (the creators), gets a signed copy of the base game for free. The short summary of the evening is that we kept all copies we brought with us 😉 Samuel and I won our games and Elio (the lucky minimalist) achieved a “tie” XD It was a great evening and we really enjoyed being challenged by some of our backers. Sorry that we didn’t show any mercy 😉 on 29.11 you all have a second opportunity to challenge us. We will be at the ManaBar (Basel) that day. Samuel always publishes pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of such events and also shows other “Behind the scenes” pictures. If you are interested, just follow us. Samuel would be happy to welcome you as part of our social media community (Here the links: FACEBOOK; TWITTER; INSTAGRAM).
Next weekend 22-24.11 we’ll be at the Herofest Convention in Bern. If you’re also there, just visit us at our boot, I’d love to meet some of our backers. On Saturday we will perform a PowerPoint presentation on “Swiss Game Creators on Kickstarter” and on Sunday we will participate in a panel discussion on “Game Design”. We are looking forward to meet you there.
Now continue to enjoy your weekend and thank you again for everything! Today the whole team is just happy 😀
With best regards,
Marc, Elio and Samuel
