Update #26

Not enough roads

Hello Everyone!

All the components are produced and sorted, the transport process has started, but there is currently significant congestion in the logistics market, which will get worse any day now because of the Chinese New Year.

Some of our components were manufactured in China because of the technology and equipment they have. This allowed us to achieve the highest visual and manufacturing quality. The components just need to reach us now for packing to begin. With that said, there has been huge congestion on the rail lines, the containers they are transported in are in short supply and many companies are trying to get the available ones. They all have to pick up their goods, so queues form where products change hands. This is exactly what has now happened to us. We have been moved up in the queue and have to wait for more transports, but the waiting time will be extended by the Chinese New Year, which will temporarily halt the loading work.

This has happened to two of our games - Successors and 1941: Race to Moscow, whose components are ready but stuck in transit. We are informing you now because we have recently received the information ourselves and have tried to investigate the situation further.

If anyone would like to know more details about logistical problems in the world,  links to the relevant services can be found below.

https://www.pymnts.com/news/international/2021/eu-supply-chain-bottleneck-raises-prices-hurts-retailers/

Our shipment will leave the loading bay after Chinese New Year, which means that some components will arrive later than expected. You should therefore be prepared for the games to reach backers a little later. We are currently assuming that shipments will start in April, but some or maybe all of them - depending on the progress of the transport and the success of the packing work - may only reach backers in May.

We know that you have been waiting for this game for a long time and we sincerely apologize for this situation, but unfortunately circumstances beyond our control can and do affect us.

Be well and take care!

Adrian & PHALANX Team

Update #25

Succession is near!

Hello Everyone!

I hope that the new year will be more peaceful for all of us!

In the previous update, we presented you with an Example of Play, a fragment of the Playbook. I think it is high time for all of you to take a look at the Playbook in all its glory. Please write in the comment section what you think about it.

We are currently waiting for transport for the last part of the game components. As soon as they reach us, picking will start and then the first shipments to the backers will begin. It is still difficult for us to estimate when exactly the individual stages will start, but we predict that picking will take place in the middle or at the end of February. In that case, the dispatch would start in March. We believe that this could work out, although it is a very optimistic scenario. We have to reckon with the fact that there may be some problem along the way or carrying out any of the activities, which will delay the whole process. We will keep you informed.

Stay safe and take care of yourself!

Update #24

The Playbook, 4th Edition on BGG and Latest News

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all safe and okay.

We have finally succeeded in assembling the Playbook (there is no only Example of Play). It took a lot of time, patience and commitment. It is a difficult task to produce so many pages full of details - consistency is key the texts must be checked several times before the files are submitted. We tried to do it quickly, but we could not sacrifice quality at the expense of speed. We are very happy to learn your suggestions for the Playbook - please leave them in the document below.

English


We'€™ve applied for a separate entry for the Fourth Edition of "Successors" at the BGG. The new edition introduces quite a number of changes, improvements and new solutions that we believe a site solely dedicated to the Fourth Edition would be beneficial to everyone interested. We encourage you to subscribe to the game on BGG and enter it into your collection.

In TableTop Simulator we have added modules with scenarios (different combinations of players). We would be very pleased if you would check them out. Happy gaming!

5 Players: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2300183592



4 Players: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2300104811



3 Players: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2298930232



2 Players: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2298850044

We have received the news today that the production of the bits we are still missing in order to assemble the game will be delayed. As such, we won'€™t be able to complete the games in December and send them for shipment to the backers. In fact, we are quite sceptical we could even promise January shipment - this is most probably not going to happen, so the safe bet is to announce delivery in February 2021 - this seems to be the most realistic date for delivering a complete game to the backers.

We will keep you informed of any change in the situation.

Stay safe!

Update #23

Rulebook, Dice Siege Tower, Online Play & Delay

Hello Everyone!

This is the update many of you were waiting for.

Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the Rulebook!

Rulebook 

It would be great if you could have a look and if you want to leave any comments - you are most welcome, we actually look forward to any ideas which would make this document even better. This should keep you busy for a week or two while we prepare the Playbook.
The minis were produced and now undergo the assembly process.

Please also have a look at the third version of the Dice Siege Tower - its functionality and use. We made several changes to the design to make sure the dice are actually falling out of it.
And yes, you guessed this right - we are now officially behind the schedule. The estimated time of delivery is now February 2021. There are many reasons but to make it very short they are threefold: there was more work with the rulebook than we originally anticipated. The rulebook you have seen during the campaign has been almost entirely rewritten - a mammoth task that took a lot of time and effort. Finally the art development was a real challenge - every single component was reviewed and redesigned where needed. Just check the map to see where we have been during the campaign and where we are today.
For most of us playing board games become problematic with current limitations. To make it up we'€™ve decided to do something we haven'€™t even considered before. If you play your games via TableTopSimulator here is a link to the free to play Successors module:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2157372567

Hopefully, this will ease your waiting for the physical game and help to practice before you set on the journey of conquering Alexander'€™s empire in the post-restriction world. Please bear in mind, we may need to remove the free module once the game is published.

As always, please drop us a line at our social media pages - we love that interaction.

With warmest regards, sincerely yours

Jaro & PHALANX Team

Update #22

The army is forming!

Hello Everyone!

In recent weeks, part of our team has finally been able to take a break on vacation and regain strength to continue creating games of the highest quality. We also organized a cosy, little event during which we presented an almost final version of Successors, which clearly impressed the guests.
But the important information we want to share is that we have received messages from manufacturers that the mass production of the figurines is proceeding successfully. The sample we received in the appropriate color met our standards and we hope that the next part of the journey - the upcoming printing - will be equally smooth.

Stay safe!

Adrian & PHALANX Team
