Two years were missed due to Covid, but this year the world’s largest toy exhibition was held again in Nuremberg, Bavaria. Of course, we couldn’t miss it either, because building international relations is an important part of the activities of the Kard és Korona publisher company. Invisible was published in Polish in 2019 by Trefl, while last year Dice upon a Time was published by Blackfyre in the Czech Republic.
We are perfectly aware that everyone must bear this hard & crazy times. The coronavirus halted the entire world suddenly and leads to so many consequences that we are not able to foresee at this point. We all hope the status is going to change very soon, and things will be the same as they used to be.
hin the next 1-2 weeks, as well as you will like it, since you are one of the people who helped to create this game as one of the first supporters.
It has been a long time since we had an update for you dear backers, but this hardly means that we have not been working on the project. For those who have never done a Kickstarter campaign let me tell you, there are a lot of things to cover you couldn’t even imagine.
First of all, we would like to apologize to you all that we report the recent event – Essen Spiel 2019 (greatest board game convention on the world) in delay, but everything happened so fast that we could hardly catch up. We proudly announce:
We have visited our manufacturer Ningbo Eastar in China. It was a fabulous journey, the kind we are going to tell our grandchildren. The primary goal of the visit was to have a look at the manufacturing process of Dice Upon a Time, because it’s really important to us to make sure we can thank you for your support with a perfect quality product. The good news is that having seen every single work phase I can confirm that DUAT is in the finish line. Eastar is doing a fantastic job. It was a perfect choice to collaborate with them. They are not only a very good business partner but also nice people and welcoming hosts. May a few pictures tell you about the incarnation process of DUAT:
We planned to close pledge manager on the 26th September, but at this moment only 83% of the surveys are completed. For this reason we postpone the closure to 3rd October, and you are going to be charged that day. After this date, we will lock your reward selections and charge cards for add-on item purchases, pledge upgrades, and pre-orders. You can still update your shipping address up until we lock addresses for shipping.
We’ve received great news and a heavy package from China, straight from the printing house. The content of the box was the first prototype of Dice Upon a Time for us to approve. Allow us to proudly present some photos of the wonderful, colorful board and beautiful, big and good quality miniatures and dice. It took a lot of work and extra expenses, but we have achieved a higher quality result. And since quality is our slogan, this achievement is truly important and makes us really proud.
Once upon a time, during our journey, deep in the middle of the dark forest, we met a friendly group. Their name was BackerKit. Our paths led us towards a common goal…
Hello Rovers of the Grimm World, And here should come some kind of “we are so sorry for not writing to you earlier” beginning. The truth is that it has one reason: each and every member of our crew is fully focused on working on the game to be able to get it produced before Essen Spiel and shipped to you this year.
