BackerKit's Back! Alright!
12 months ago – Sat, Aug 08, 2020 at 02:01:55 AM

Some of you might have noticed that the BackerKit surveys have been sent out! We've received about 75% of the surveys. If you haven't filled yours out yet, please do, so we can have everything ready for when we ship the games out. 

Even if you haven't backed at the level to receive a game, we'll be sending out a postcard to everyone as a thank you!

As for the games, we're estimating that they'll be sent over to us from the manufacturers by November, so we're on track for shipping them out to all of you in November!

Your Eyes Tell... 🎵Me that it's time for an update!

Our assets are all ready! Cards are proofed and ready to go! The tracker is proofed and ready to go! The box is updated with Clio and Vicci's names on them! We are just doing some more quick edits on the rulebook and that will get sent out soon too! (We'll be sending surveys out closer to when we get the physical copies in case anyone moves between now and then).

In the meantime, we will be letting you know the progress when it gets printed, when we get manufacturer proofs, etc. We'll also be letting you know what our team is up to! 

Clio has been working on several projects, one of them is for Honey and Hot Wax, an anthology of games about sex by a diverse group of nine designers, edited by Lucian Kahn and Sharang Biswas.

On July 25th at 1:55pm EST, we'll be playing Battle of the Boybands at Resonym!

Banana is also co-designing and co-publishing Jiangshi: Blood in the Banquet Hall with Sen-Foong Lim and Wet Ink Games! A collaborative storytelling tabletop RPG (with limited combat) about a Chinese immigrant family running a restaurant in 1920's San Francisco, faced with having to balance restaurant life and fending off hopping vampires!

Finally, we also want to shout out one of our friends, Jeeyon Shim, who's working on a really cool 1 to 2 player RPG called Wait For Me

Quote: "WAIT FOR ME is a three week journaling game about time travel and connection, for one or two players, with prompts emailed to you daily from August 3rd to August 25th 2020."

About to... TAKE OFF!

We're in the final stages of layout for BATTLE OF THE BOYBANDS! 

  • The Boys deck and the Events deck have been laid out and are ready for final proofing ✔
  • The Breaking News deck is being laid out and is almost ready for final proofing 
  • The box has been laid out and is ready for final proofing ✔
  • The scoretrack is laid out and has been proofed ✔
  • The rulebook is laid out and is ready for final proofing ✔

The designers, Clio Yun-su Davis and Vicci Ho, have been working hard to make sure everything is just right, before we move onto the final stages.

Once these are all proofed and ready to go, we'll be sending it all out to our printer. From there, we'll be keeping you updated every other week on how things are going on our end!

We'll also be sending out surveys closer to when we get the games from the printer. We realized that some backers might be moving between now and then, so we want to make sure we get everything in right!

As an aside, we are also co-publishing another game with Wet Ink Games that will be launching on Kickstarter July 14!  Jiangshi: Blood in the Banquet Hall is a liiittle bit different from Battle of the Boybands. It's a tabletop roleplaying game about a Chinese-American family running a restaurant in 1920's Chinatown. In the day, they face the stress of running a restaurant, while at night, hopping vampires come out and attack everyone! It's designed by Banana Chan and Sen-Foong Lim and there's a whole cast of incredible writers, artists and editors working with them. You can follow the Kickstarter here

Backstreet's Back... With BackerKit Updates
about 1 year ago – Fri, Jun 12, 2020 at 10:19:29 PM

We just wanted to let you all know that we'll be sending out BackerKit surveys next week! We'll have add-ons, including more lanyards, buttons, and our other games!

So what is our focus now?

While we're screening the cards, we noticed a couple of issues, so we're just relaying them out right now.  We're also redoing a bit of art, putting final touches on the box and final edits on the rulebook, before we send it all off to the printers! Our ETA for everything to get ready, before the FINAL, FINAL send off is within 2-3 weeks.

The next big thing we'll be updating on is some screenshots of the files so you can see what's going on BTS. After today, we'll also be sending out updates every other week, so it doesn't clog up your inbox! 

THANK YOU!
