What are you going to do with the money?

The most expensive part is making the pictures. Our graphic artists are working at friendly prices, compared to the standard commercial rates, but we want our art to be unified, good, and we want a lot of it. It’s simply not possible to do that with volunteers working nights. Another big part of the budget is producing the physical games. Our team consists of volunteers who do this alongside their day jobs. We want to cover the costs. If everything goes well, we will also send donations (at least 40 % of any potential profits) to the Czechoslovak Legionnaires Association and the Rolling association for their games. We bear the risks and the costs personally.

Has anyone played the game yet?

Yes, we’re coming to you after several dozen tests. Unfortunately, we all have to cope with the current pandemic, which makes it difficult to meet for in-person test runs. Playing online makes it a bit clumsy, but we have found a way to make it at least partially possible and we have managed to run a few online tests already. On the 30th of March, we’ll launch the signups for digital test runs so that you have a chance to try it - regardless of whether you have backed the game or not.
