Fossilis on Board Game Spotlight
7 months ago – Tue, Oct 29, 2019 at 11:21:50 AM

Hey Paleontologists!

This campaign is really blowing our minds. Not only are we so excited about how many Stretch Goals we've reached and how many of you are here with us, we can't believe how many of you are taking part in our survey regarding the 5th player colour. Keep up the good work commenting on the MAIN page!! Don't forget that once we reach $85,000CAD voting will close. We have no doubt that it will be some time between today and tomorrow.

Oh, and welcome to our newest backers. We're so happy to have you here! 

Lizzy and Derek Play Fossilis LIVE!

Tomorrow evening (7:30PDT) Lizzy and Derek Funkhouser of the Board Game Spotlight on Facebook will be playing Fossilis in a LIVE stream. Please join them on Facebook for this event. Sign up using this link, and go to the event page to get the link to take you to the play through once it begins. If you don't have Facebook, don't worry. They tend to post their play throughs on YouTube after they are done.

If you have any questions or want to talk to us about anything, please don't hesitate to contact us through a DM in Kickstarter. We're here for you!

You are all amazing, and we are so lucky that you chose to be with us for Fossilis!

Until next time Paleontologists ...

Mid Campaign and The Paleontologist Meeple
7 months ago – Tue, Oct 29, 2019 at 11:21:48 AM

Hey Paleontologists,

We're really rolling. At the moment we're at $ 88,755CA pledged, 493% funded, 1,794 backers, and still 14 days to go. Not too shabby for almost halfway through the campaign. 

Welcome to our new backers. You're in for quite a treat. So many great things to happen over the next while. And to our backers that have been here since before the last update, we're so glad you're sticking around to enjoy this ride. We're having the best time with the Fossilis campaign here at KTBG Headquarters. We hope you feel the same way. Now on to the matters at hand ...

What We've Uncovered

Yes, we did it. Yesterday we uncovered the 5th player! Now Fossilis is a 2-5 player game!! 

The Vote

We are astounded at how many of you have taken the time out of your busy days to vote on the colour of meeple you'd like us to add for 5th player. Without further ado, I give you SKY for the win!

What We're Working On

We figure it will take a couple of days to make it to the next one. But it doesn't have to be that way. Here's what you can do to get to this goal faster:

Another One Down, and Two HUGE Announcements
8 months ago – Wed, Oct 23, 2019 at 01:24:20 PM

Hey Paleontologists,

Well, we did it! We reached another Stretch Goal, thanks to you. Here's where we are at: $75,027CA  pledged, 416% funded, 1,518 backers, and still 17 days to go! Imagine what we can uncover in that time!

Welcome to all of our new backers. You've missed a wild ride so far. But brace yourselves for what is about to happen! And thank you to everyone else who has stuck around. This has surely been an awesome campaign so far. And we have you to thank for that.

What We've Unearthed

The Big News!

It's a 5th Player!! That's right. We just couldn't bare the thought of your youngest child or your oldest friend sitting out and watching you have an amazing time playing Fossilis. So, after we hit $85 000CA, we'll add a 5th player.

 Make sure to vote on your favourite colour Paleontologist!

More Big News!

After we launched the Fossilis campaign, Solo (artist,  as I like to call him) expert, David Turçzi, contacted us  to tell us that he was really interested in creating a solo mode. There was no way we were turning that offer down. So, when we make it to $95 000CA, we'll add this mode to the game. It's already sounding amazing! So much  more info to come!

Let's make this happen!

If you really, really want this stuff added to your pledge, you need to help us make it happen. To push us further faster,  share our campaign, so that it gets noticed by your friends and family. Here are two ways to do that:

What a Day!
8 months ago – Wed, Oct 23, 2019 at 11:56:42 AM

Hey Paleontologists! 

It certainly has been quite a day. Welcome to our new backers, and to our backers from the beginning of the day, thank you for your continued support! Today we have broken many KTBG records. Between having more backers on our first day of a campaign ever, to breaking through not one, or two, or three, but four Stretch Goals, this day is going to be in our memories forever.

Currently we are sitting at about $35,481 pledged, 197% funded, 722 backers, and still 22 days to go!!

Let's Check Out What We've Unlocked Since the Last Update!

And This is What We're Working On

It is amazing to us how much incredible content we've unlocked. So much replayability already. But how about these Paleontologist Meeples? You didn't think you were going to have to play Fossilis with regular old meeples, did you?

How Are We Going to Make This Happen?

One way to rock through Stretch Goals is to get the campaign recognized. BoardGameGeek (BGG), a website that boasts the largest database of board games in the world, hosts a page for Fossilis. You can see this page here. Once in a while we can get an image to appear on BGG's front page by giving it thumbs (or likes). Right now, we have this photo up:  

Click on the image to take you there

If you would so kindly lend your thumb, we can move it all the way up to the front page in no time. Check it out here!

If you don't have a BGG account, don't fear. You can sign up for a free account here. It's really easy to sign up. And think of all of the game data you'll have at your fingertips!

Already Playing Fossilis LIVE!

Jeremy Howard, of Man vs. Meeple did an impromptu play-through of Fossilis tonight on Facebook. If you have a Facebook profile, you can see the play-through here

We're on a Roll
8 months ago – Wed, Oct 23, 2019 at 11:56:32 AM

Hey Paleontologists,

While we are trying not to write updates every day to fill up your inbox, it's almost impossible to hold back. We have come a long way since a mere 46.5 hours ago. First of all, we would like to welcome all of our new backers to Fossilis. It's been a really fun ride so far. We hope you've all been having fun. We'd also like to thank our backers that have been here since the beginning. Your sharing and becoming involved in the campaign is what has kept this moving so fast. 

Right now we're at $51,764CA pledged, 287% funded, 1,054 backers, and STILL we have 21 days to go. This is really incredible! Thank you, thank you, thank you backers!!

What's Been Unearthed Since Our Last Update

I always love when more content is added to a game. It makes the game that much more replayable. Oh and how about those Paleonmeeples? One thing about our games, they sure are pretty to look at. And when you have these beauties standing on your dig sites, you're sure going to be happy!

What's Next?

Let's make this happen!

When you share our campaign, it gets noticed. When it gets noticed, people back it. When people back it, we earn more Stretch Goals. Let's make this happen people!
