Unofficial G:AR Update
“When is Goblins: Alternate Realities coming out?”
Short answer… Everyone who backed, should have the game by June.
I remember testing the G:AR card game with Evertide Games at Gencon last year. I was so nervous that people would hate the game or walk away bored or worst of all, not even show up to play it. However, I was delighted to find that not only did our player spots quickly fill up, but we had to create extra seats, which also filled up.
Everybody enjoyed the game and many of the players wanted to play again. I was very happy. However, Richard James (the main designer of the game) wasn’t as excited. He explained to me that while watching people play G:AR, he’d noticed a number of unbalanced rules that could be exploited by players. Some of these details were easily fixed, but some of them went deep into the heart of the game and would require some hefty redesigns.
Well those redesigns are finished and now it’s just a matter of finishing the final details, printing out and shipping the massive amount of boxes and loot. I’m really proud of the quality, talent and amount of work that’s been pumped into this project and I honestly can’t wait for you guys to play it.
As a thank you for your patience, Evertide is adding a set of Not-Walter character and action cards to the game for all the backers.
If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a tweet and I’ll answer what I can.
As always, thanks for reading.
