Hey Guardians of the Gameboard!
We’ve got a whole whack of new updates for you this week! This will be a longer than a Jimmy Fallon monologue, so grab some snacks and let’s get cracking.
First, here’s a brief overview of what we’ll be covering today:
- Hands on video with Gameboard
- GenCon update
- Announcing our livestreamers and influencers for Beta
- Shipping updates
Many of you were asking about gameplay video…
Check out this quick video we shot at GenCon with some of the live gameplay we were showing off at our booth:
I’m personally so excited to start using Gameboard in my own campaigns! Dynamic Fog of War and Line of Sight is tight! (Any Ryan George fans in the house?)
Speaking of GenCon…
We had such an amazing time repping Gameboard this year at GenCon! Thanks so much to all of you backers who came to visit and support us this year! We had such amazing feedback from everyone who came by to visit, both from our amazing backer community (most of which said Gameboard was waaaay better than they originally thought) and from other attendees and game companies who came to check us out!
We had a great opportunity to show off Gameboard on the main stage at one of ZOE’s comedy shows which was a blast!
We made a big splash this year, and can’t wait to return next year!
Get your game on with our game hosts!
Many of you who jumped in on Beta (thanks btw!) may have seen many of these faces already, but for those of you who haven’t, here are some of the amazing people who will be livestreaming games on Gameboard that you can jump in and interact or play with…
Play and interact with your favorite influencers featuring HyperRPG, Steve Jackson, Thom Clancy, Jamison Stone, Satine Phoenix, Laura Thompson, Jason Azevedo, Creative Crits, Mark Streed, UrGamingTechie, Nerdarchy, Dice Tower and more!
These are just some of the amazing game hosts you can join in Beta and the list continues to grow every day! If you’re not part of Beta yet, don’t worry, you can sign up here:
We are currently in the process of getting our final components together to get your Gameboard assembled and shipped, and we are very close to the final stretch!
Unfortunately, like a lot of the rest of the world with manufacturing and supply chain issues, we hit a delay with shipping logistics and now have to respin a sideboard. We’re also still waiting for FCC testing to clear and our certifications to pass before we can ship units out.
We were planning to start shipping out in November, but even with this delay we are still aiming to start shipping Gameboards out in December as long as our final components arrive and certifications pass. The good news is December is not far away and you’ll start receiving your hardware before you know it!
As these units arrive, we would love for you to provide feedback, bug reporting, and much more as you are the first to receive these units. If that is something you are not comfortable doing, please let us know.
We’re hoping to roll a natural 20 for these to all come through soon so we can get these Gameboards out to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience with us as we are working very hard to get these Gameboards out to you as quickly as we are able to.
As a “thank you for bearing with us”, we will be giving all Kickstarter backers 1 year free subscription that starts after your boards arrive, plus a special package before the holidays!
Please take a few minutes to review/update your shipping address by logging onto lastgameboard.com with the email that you used to for Kickstarter make sure that your mailing addresses are correct. If you have any issues updating your account, please email email@example.com or drop us a line in our support channel on Discord.
Make sure to verify you have the correct shipping address by November 15th so that when we start shipping your present + Gameboards out, yours doesn’t end up at some random rogue’s doorstep. Whoopsies!
Final bonus updates!
Can’t forget to post up new announced games in case anyone missed out! This time we’re announcing Terraforming Mars by Asmodee Digital and The Red Opera: Last Days of the Warlock (a 5th Edition Campaign Adventure) by Apotheosis Studios is coming to Gameboard!
That’s it for this week. Be sure to join us on Discord where you can connect with the whole Gameboard team and community and see even more of what we’re up to!
