PayPal now Supported in BackerKit!

Hi Survivors, We have been working hard behind the scenes to add a much demanded feature to the Backerkit...today we can announce that PayPal has been added! Using paypal with crowd funding platforms can be difficult due to the nature that payments are received and the terms, however we are confident that introducing it at this stage should pose no major issues.  You will see this payment option on the final payment stages in BackerKit if you choose to use it.  The BackerKit is set to close on the 31st January.

Out of Cryosleep

I have only a little update this time - I am about to get started on the new campaign, so if you've not had your voice heard yet, feel free to make suggestions in the comments section. I have gone through past comments and collected as many as I could see so far. I am listening to you guys! However, it was brought to my attention that I forgot to add the cryogenic chambers I promised as the first stretch goal. These were the versions of the cryogenic chambers found with the habitation set that did not have bases. They were to be based versions, with similar tiles to the engineering section wit ...

Tactics Talk: 60pt. Eddard Stark List

Bannermen!  Today we have a Tactics Article for you while we wait for winter to pass and spring (and thus, the game) to arrive! Wanted to do something a bit different this time, so we're looking at a focus on a larger sized game of 60pts to really open up our list-building options. One of the aspects of playing 40-50pts is that each option is going to matter- the more points you add, the more room you'll have to expand your choices, but at the same time it means more room to cover potential holes your initial list had. For today, I decided to go with Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell as the ar ... Read more

BIGGEST UPDATE YET!

Good afternoon, fellow Venetians! Sorry about the update last week! I managed to find my way out of IKEA in the end (and did so with very few extra things we didn't really need). Back to work this week, and here with the big announcement that I wanted to share before. We are delighted to announce that the Carnevale Kickstarter is going to be delayed. Delighted? What? Well, there's a very good reason we've decided to delay the Kickstarter fulfilment, one which you've probably already seen the picture of below...    We're thrilled to announce today possibly the biggest news to Carnevale since t ...

This is something beyond our control, we can't do much about the returning packages. Once it leaves Poland, it cannot be re-routed to different address or ordered to be returned to us. Reasons are various, most of the cases it's the delivery company's fault, especially during the Holidays Season we get quite a lot of misaddressed packages (not by us, but later on in countri ...
