Mid Campaign and The Paleontologist Meeple
11 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
11 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!
11 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:

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
11 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!

Fossilis in the Media

We're going to try to share something Fossilis media related in as many updates as we can. Today I am sharing an interview Fossilis designer David Diaz, did with Michael Chang from Shelf Space at the amazing ProtoTO we have here in Toronto every September. Check it out!

Another Stretch Goal Down, So Many More to Go!
11 months ago – Wed, Oct 23, 2019 at 11:56:24 AM

Hey Paleontologists!

You are really making this campaign shine. We're presently at $68,198CA pledged, 378% funded, 1,381 backers, and still 18 days to go. You have pushed us farther, faster than we could have ever imagined. We have you to thank for this amazing campaign. 

Welcome to our newest backers. You came just in time! We're having a fantastic time watching each Stretch Goal unlock. And to all of you who have been here throughout, we can't thank you enough for being here with us.

What We've Uncovered Since Our Last Update

It is a little ridiculous how excited I am to get 4 tiny X's. When the pledges went over $68,000, I literally jumped out of my seat and screamed, "we have tiny x's". It was really weird because we were in the middle of dinner at a restaurant and I think people were wondering what in the world was going on.

What We're Working On

This is a dinosaur game right? More dinos is the way to go. These ones especially. Who doesn't like a good Stegosaurus? But I'll tell you this, if I had a pet Procompsognathus, I'd call it Compy and take it for walks down my street.

Go Forth and Game Podcast

Tom Gurganus did a fantastic job interviewing designer David Diaz, and KTBG publisher Helaina Cappel in this fantastic discussion about how Fossilis got made. Check out what we had to say! Let us know what you thought of the interview in the comments below.

Discussion About Translation

Paleontologists, we really are making this game for you. We want everyone to enjoy themselves while playing. Part of what we do here at KTBG is to make games be as inclusive as possible. We are working on the rules in a few different languages (to be posted on BGG and our website), which will include translations of the action text of Tool cards and Skill tiles. Presently we are looking for localization partners who might be able to offer the entire game in the language you speak. 

Let's make this happen!
