Update on our Kickstarter 10 Battle Mat Escape Rooms

Jo, our Logistics Manager, talks about how the latest DR Games and Dark Realm Roleplay Kickstarter is coming along. Digital rewards have been sent and the physical product is on the way. Jo explains.

10 Battle Mat Escape Rooms

So, the Kickstarter has finished, and it has been a great success, surpassing our expectations. Now the fun part begins, having it printed, but who would have thought that could prove such a challenge. We had gone to our regular printers for the initial quote, but now we wanted to check board thickness, to laminate or not to laminate, whether it was worth it to collate and cellophane wrap, what box size would we need. All the details that I love sorting out, and these were all agreed pretty quickly. The maps were coming along nicely, and we would soon be ready to have a test copy printed. So far so good, but our regular printer did not do punch boards for the tokens from the stretch goals. So, time to find another printer. This proved much more of a challenge as we wanted them printed in the UK. The thickness and the shape of the tokens had to be agreed, and the initial quotes we received were far higher than we had expected or budgeted for, no good.

Finally, we went back to a printing firm that we had almost used for a previous project and thankfully they were willing to produce just the punch board tokens and at the price we had budgeted for. Big sigh of relief. And that is where we are at, now. The test pack for the battle maps have been ordered and should be with us in the next couple of days. Once we are happy with the quality of these the full order will be printed, which should take another 10 day. The punch-board tokens have been ordered and have a lead time of 7 to 10 days, which means fingers crossed and all being well, we should be ready to ship out to our wonderful supporters within 2/3 weeks, and then you just have to wait for your parcel to arrive in the post.

All of our previous successful Kickstarters have been digital, so this has been the first one where we have produced a physical product. The new aspects and challenges that this has brough to my role within the company have been great, and I am looking forward to the next one we plan to produce. So, watch this space.

Presenting Dark Force Incursion - A FREE Roll and Write One Player Game

It has been on my mind for a while now as the Corona-virus spreads across the world . What can I offer those who are at home and unable to partake in their usual gaming sessions because of isolation. How can a creative mind help alleviate the stress of boredom and worry? I have seen other roll and write games and thought that might be a great way of giving something to the community to these very ends.    Looking at what I have previously worked on under the DR Games and the hex tile has been a feature. I decide that I would try and use this format, combine it with a number mechanism and inject it with a narrative. This became a scenario that fuel the fire of the story...and Dark Force Incursion was born.   " Y o u r l a n d h a s b e e n i n v a d e d b y a p o w e r f u l D a r k F o r c e .

Rad Zone goes from Strength to Strength

As we approach the last 48 hours of the Rad Zone Kickstarter we should reflect on how much we have added to the game and what current, and potential, new backers will receive when the campaign finishes. This is of course all added to the original content. 1.        The Search Matrix has been expanded to give the player more search results 2.        12 more characters are available 3.        Characters can now have Companions in game 4.        Journeys to and from the city now have more options 5.        And the new narrative rumour mechanism will add to the story! Key of course is that all backers will feel the benefits of these stretch goal milestones as they enhance the core rulebook. We must not forget as well that we have a core game that has flourished thanks to feedback on, and the interest in, the project. Kickstarter again has proven to be a motivational collaborative space supported by patrons who’s backing not only helps fund but also drive and design more origi
