Production update - final cards and voting tokens!

Arrrhhhhhh Zombies!!!



Production update - final cards and voting tokens!


We finally received the last iterations for the cards, as well as the voting tokens. And they all look perfect!


Here's one of the final sheets of cards (the lighting in the room wasn't perfect, so the colors you see aren't exactly the colors used for the cards, but close), with different translations on them.  We finally have the right colors we wanted, so we approved it for mass production!


And here are the final voting tokens! 6 of each color, +3 for those of you who took the 7th Zombie expansion in the Ultimate set :)

That brings us to:

  • Box - done
  • KS exclusive cover - done
  • Zombie Cubes - done
  • Cards - done
  • Board - done
  • Tokens - done
  • Voting tokens - done
  • Rulebooks - done

We'll be able to start mass production soon!

Until next time,
Quack!

 

Production update - final prototype!
10 days ago – Tue, Nov 07, 2017 at 11:07:06 PM

Arrrhhhhhh Zombies!!!

Production update - final prototype!

As we go back and forth with the factory to get all the components right, we wanted to share with you the latest status. We're almost there!


We received the prototype box, cover, board, tokens and rulebooks, and we have to say: it was perfect at the first shot! We validated this prototype with the factory, they will be mass produced as they are.

 

 

Aren't they looking great? We were amazed at first sight!


Zombie Cubes needed a few iterations to get the heat transfer technology right, there was some darker color on the corners we wanted off (still partially visible in the first picture above, taken before we received the last cubes prototypes shown below). Well, we're happy to say, they're looking really good! Here's the last and validated prototype:


What's left are the cards. As we said in the last update, we received the first sheets of cards, and we're working on adjusting the colors to get the perfect quality we're looking for!

  • Box - done
  • KS exclusive cover - done
  • Zombie Cubes - done
  • Board - done
  • Tokens - done
  • Rulebooks - done
  • Cards - in progress
Until next time,
Quack!

We should receive more samples shortly!

KS Exclusive Gameplay Update

Some off you have asked for it, so find below the KS Exclusives rulebook.

 We have been play-testing further the game to make sure the extra content we unlocked would still have the fun expected. These play-tests forced us to do some final adjustement to ensure a smooth gameplay.

  • Hidden Market: originally the Hidden Market was meant to be 6 cards which you would discover the content only if you pay a flat cost of 1 Gold Coin. Jeremie's initial vision of it was to have them shuffled in the Shop deck, but with a unique and disctinctive back, that when dealt, would signalto not turn the card to reveal its content.Now that we have a lot more play-tests in, we can tell that people simply did not pay attention to the back of the card and the system did not work. We spent a lot of time thinking of a more elegent solution, and we found one.

    We still have 6 cards, but they all have the same look, and offer for 1 Gold Coin to gain the next card on top of the Shop Deck. This totally gets the job done. You might still gain a card that cost 2, while paying 1, yet be forced to do something you might not want to because of the blind aspect of the mechanic.

  • Blue or Red pill: this new expansion also needed some changes. From our test, the option of gaining a Yellow Voting Bead on the 3rd round was useless. The rolling action also felt flat and unfair. We changed the way you obtain the Yellow Voting Bead, by making sure it is present only on the 1st and 2nd round, but also, have a really alternative, making for an interesting decision.

That is all for now!

Until next time,
Quack!

Rulebook EN: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ehx4im5nro0pl6e/EN-Rulebook-ZT%2008-22-17.pdf?dl=1

Translation

All partners have provided their translated version of the rulebooks and cards. Kasia, our new super star internal Graphic Designer will be integrating these translations to the In-Design version of the rulebook this week!

  - All rulebook visual integration will be completed by Friday 25th.
  - All rulebook proof-reading and corrections will be completed by Friday 1st of September.

We plan to submit all files to our manufacturer Friday 8th of September!

Cubes update

We have received some first prototypes of heat-transfered Zombies.
This is a first iteration to validate the mass production process and quality.

 

 

 
 Beside this black Artifact on the bottom and right border of the cubes the quality and durability of the print is definitely a lot better than stickers. We will send a new image to clear these black lines and do a new iteration shortly!

This is moving along nicely!

Vikings Gone Wild - Masters of Elements is Live!

For once, this shout out is going to be about us!

This expansion adds an asymmetric start to Vikings Gone Wild by introducing a new mechanic: the Artefacts! At the beginning of the game, 4 Artefacts are dealt to each player, from which you chose 3 in a drafting system, the remaining being discarded.

Come check it out!

Until next time,
Quack!
