WIP Wednesday #61

Dear backers,

So let's rewind the clock back to WIP Wednesday #56 when we talked about production.  

Production was 95% done and things were starting to get sent over to the assembly line department. Well we thought we would show you the latest and last glimpse from the factory floor....The Village Attacks final assembly line.

Yes that means we are all done China's end - woohoo! 

We have to say a BIG thank you to our account manager at Eastar, Derek Lin who has been exceptional and has guided us through the whole process. Without him the game wouldn't be what it is today. Derek has become a true friend and a member of the Grimlord family and we always look forward to seeing him at conventions and going out for beers.

SHIPPING PART 1

We expected to have the pallets in the containers by now about to board the ship. Things never run smoothly though do they. Assembly took a bit longer than expected, and paperwork needs filing before the ships leave. So we are running slightly behind (just over a week). 

However all the stock has been collected from Eastar by the Chinese forwarder and is on route to Port. Once its at Port we will be able to confirm shipping vessels details and a date these games will reach the US and UK docking stations. Once the containers are on the ships we will post another update ... thats if we can get wifi :(


HEELLLLLPPPPP, I'm locked in the container

 Final chance to double check your shipping address

With that in mind now is the last chance for you to double check you have the correct shipping address listed for your order. 

We would strongly urge you to do this in the next few days, as once the games are with the fulfilment centres, all shipping addresses will be programmed into their systems and cannot be changed. 

To check your shipping address simply

  • Sign into your account here https://va.gamefound.com/en
  • Click on My Account on the top right hand box on the screen
  • Select My Orders from the left hand column buttons
  • Click on View Details
  • Click on Change Shipping Address
  • If your shipping address is correct simply press Save and exit
  • If it is wrong please change your shipping addressing the relevant fields and press Save and exit
  • Please note you will not be able to change shipping address to another country to that of your original order. We also cannot ship to PO Boxes. 

You are responsible for ensuring your shipping address is correct and will be fully liable if the address listed is incorrect, item is lost in transit or returned to sender. For more information please click here.

Until the pallets are on the boats ...

WIP Wednesday #60

Dear backers,

Reviews! Not one, not two, but three reviewers have posted reviews for Village Attacks! First up is Both Sides of My Table, a reviewer who specialises in solo board gaming. Next is Gaming Knights, who have posted a whole play through of a mission with final thoughts and scores at the end (note: they were playing the Event rules incorrectly, this does flash up at several points in the video). And last but not least is The Game Shelf! We'll leave it to you guys to watch and read, but things are looking good :D

Next week we'll be discussing something many of you have been asking about recently; shipping! See you then!

WIP Wednesday #59

Dear Backers,

Apologies all that we missed last week's WIP. 

UK Games Expo was manic and a constant rollercoaster of demos, meetings and interviews - day and night! Our plan last week was to come to you with (almost) live content, images and footage from the conference so that you could experience it with us. Gutted this didn't happen this time but we still took the time to collect the following shots and content to show you what the GG team got up to last weekend. 

UKGE

This was our second time at UK Games Expo and only our third ever event, and it did not disappoint. It was great to catch up with fellow exhibitors during set up day and catch a few new faces exhibiting for the first time. It is important to us that we are part of the wider gaming community, all competition is healthy as they say, and we know what it is like to be the newbies. Last year we were welcomed with open arms, so much so that the event holds a special place in our hearts, and really does exude a spirit of friendship and community.

Throughout the show we also got to meet you lovely lot, it was great to have a bit of banter and play a few games. In some cases a few of you kept coming back throughout the show to try and complete the Golden Troll challenge, which certainly went down well.

Here is just a few of the lucky winners of The Golden Troll Challenge.





Don't worry if you missed out, as mentioned last week we can officially announce The Golden Troll Challenge will be returning at Essen Spiel 2018 so make sure to bring your A game if attending ;)

As well as the competitions and demoing throughout the weekend we also had the opportunity to get many review copies of our games in front of the press. So hopefully in the near future blogs, podcasts and youtube reviews will be posted by reviewers. We will repost any articles/videos as and when they are available.

Oh and in case you missed it, we had the honour of appearing on 'Ontabletop' live from the show on twitch discussing Village Attacks with Justin from Beasts of War. Check it out below.

Lastly a big shout out must go to Richard and Dan, our honorary GG team members and lifesavers who supported Adam and I throughout the event.

until next time

WIP Wednesday #58

Dear backers,

UK Games Expo Reminder

First things first. As we might have mentioned we are going to be at UK Games Expo next week (Friday 1st - Sunday 3rd June 2018). If you are attending don't forget to swing by our stand, Booth 1-D7 and say hello and have a game of Village Attacks. 

It should be pretty easy to spot us. 



Our booth at Essen Spiel last year

We have more gameplay tables this year and more demonstrators and yes, drumroll, we will be showcasing The Everrain. 

We will also be doing the WIP Wednesday next week on the Thursday evening following the UKGE Show Preview Event which press will be attending. 

And if all this isn't enough to entice you over to see us ... then we have another surprise in store for you. 



The Golden Troll, yes folks that's right, those of you coming to UKGE are in with a chance of winning one of these 80mm tall beauts. 

Move aside Games Workshop's Golden Demon award, it is all about Grimlord's Gaming Master Golden Troll award now. If you dare to take on the challenge of the Golden Troll mission (exclusive to the event), you and your team must complete your objectives beating the game to take away the award. The Troll will be awarded to the player in the winning team that makes the final move. 

We will be making a number of Golden Trolls available during the course of the three day event. Once they are gone they're gone so get down to the tables quickly to be in with a chance. 

For those of you not attending, never fear, the Golden Troll will make an appearance at Spiel and PAX Unplugged later in the year. You never know we may even spoil you with an online competition so everyone in the community gets their shot. 

Not a Village Attacks backer?  With a bit of house ruling imagine what havoc a Golden Troll could cause aboard the Hikari in Endure the Stars or in any of your other games..

Game update

In other news, well there isn't too much to report. Eastar is just about ready to finish the last stage of assembly and pack the games ready for shipping. Obviously we aren't going to leave you completely DRY for another week. We realised that we forgot to report on one of the vital gaming components used in Day & Night mode.... The Day dice. We showed you a shot of the midnight blue glitter Night Dice a while back but we never showed you the Day Dice, so here they are in all their glory.



Day Dice - Frosted Clear



Reporting from Expo next week. Until then ...

WIP Wednesday #57

Dear backers,

While you wait for your games, we thought we would give you one more final treat. 

Everyone's a game designer 

We always promised to provide free downloadable content from our website to enable you to create your own unique versions of the game. 

AND while we cannot release all downloadable content yet, we thought we'd tease you with some blank Village Attacks character dashboards. 

Ultimately we want you all to enjoy Village Attacks to the fullest and hope by offering the  ability to customise your experience you can achieve maximum replayability.

So ... if the 26 monsters and 26 Town Heroes we have chosen for our game aren't quite the ones you wanted, why not create your own. All you have to do is download the pack from our website which includes all the blank templates for both Monsters and Town Heroes and you are free to imagine your very worst mythic creatures and their counterparts, or simply integrate your favourite characters from other games you own and bring them into the Village Attacks universe.

Simply go to the following link https://www.grimlordgames.com/downloads and then select the files you wish to download from Village Attacks dashboard template folder



Visit the download section of our website

With the dashboards you can customise every aspect, from the role of Monster: Decimator, Guardian or Supports to its Abilities, Health & Experience stats and even Dice slots. We've even provide blank templates for the backs of the dashboards so you can input your own lore for the creature. As if that wasn't enough we have also included ability token templates so you can create a multitude of skills sets for your characters.



Dashboard Front



Dashboard Back



Basic Skill level



Level up skill

Likewise with the Town Heroes, we've supplied the templates so you can design the Monsters' arch enemies. You can customise all stats and special abilities, resulting in   some truly savage forces to be reckoned with.



We can't wait to hear and see what you have come up with. Feel free as always to show us your work on our facebook group or DM us at enquiries@grimlordgames.com 

Coming soon ...

We are also currently working on creating a downloadable Map Editor which will enable you to create your own scenarios and missions. Watch this space!

Until then (and next week) ... happy game designing.
