Medal of Honor Achieved! Huge Thank you to all our supporters. We really appreciate all the help and referrals to help us get to this level. Funded in 3 hours and meeting all our stretch goals before the end is very exciting and we will work hard to bring you the best Airborne Commander experience we can. I have tried to get Max to jump out of an airplane if we reach $30,000 as our next stretch goal but he has passed. I like the suggestions and we have been play testing some options but we want to make sure we keep the tight balance in the game. We are looking at some options and going to get Lon to work on bring the Mark IV to life.
Distinguished Service Cross Achieved! Thanks for all the support as we approach our last day. Medal of Honor here we come!
Check it out at Kickstarter!
Headed into our last 5 days on Kickstarter! We are excited to add the Axis motorcycle to the Axis deck. We have also started to received some additional quotes on printing. Waiting to find out how many stretch cards we will be adding to finalize the quotes, but I am pleased http://tramadolfeedback.com with what we are seeing as upgrades for the cards.
Keep up sharing with your friends. I would love to add more cards to the stretch goals.
Release the Panzers!
It is interesting reviewing a lot of the reports of D-Day tank citing. From what I can tell the biggest tank which was in the area of Mission Albany during the first couple of days was the StuG III. Of course to an infantryman every armored vehicle they face looks like a Tiger Tank and everyone was reported shot by a sniper even if shrapnel was a much bigger killer. I am curious what would have happened if Rommel had gotten his way with the Panzer deployment or Hitler has woken earlier to the threat and released the Panzers. Definitely an expansion opportunity here.
Questions and Answers from Kickstarter
Rules: They are now posted on our website click here. I reserve the right to correct things and will be moving around the spacing on a couple of pages before the final printing.
Getting names for the cards and the supporter page: I plan to send an email or message to everyone to get the name they would like to appear on the cards and supporter page as appropriate since I realize many of you are very creative with your names on Kickstarter.
Digital Image (Pledge Level $10): I will send this out after getting everyone’s name.
Card Quality: Thanks to suggestions from many of you we are looking at some additional printing quotes. At this point based on the goals we are looking at at least 300msg casino card stock or better quality. As I may have mentioned before, I have found inconsistencies with various printers when you think the standards are the same, so I don’t want to finalize this till I can feel some examples in my bare hands.
Retail: So, if you have taken a look at the Stratamax webpage you will see that our normal process is to do an initial printing and then have someone else license the product and handle distribution. This lets us focus on new game development. At present we are planning a print run size around the kickstarter size with some extra to run tournaments and sell some off the website, but not a large enough print run to put through distribution. This may change and I will let you know if it does.
Expansions: As you can see above, I would love to do an expansion for “Release the Panzers” and as discussed earlier for the 82nd, 1st, and others. We have some of these ideas in play testing and if we feel we can bring you a quality expansion we will do so. How we do that, kickstarter, sell off the website, etc. has not been determined, but we will be sure to let you know.
