June is almost over and we got our June update in just-in-time!
We have been really busy this month preparing all our artwork for print. We still have 3 of the 10 new cards left to draw and then we are done! While we are on the topic of new cards, we wanted to share a couple of the sketches…
We have had great fun building these new cards, we know you are going to love them when you get your copy of Kingless later in the year.
The design of the rules is now complete, minus a few changes in the layout of the text. Once that final coat of varnish is dried, we will share the full versions. But to give you an idea of how it’s looking, here is a small screenshot.
Since we designed Kingless to be fast and easy to play, we felt a folded sheet suited the nature of the rules better than forcing you to thumb through pages of a booklet.
Rather than having a wordy list, we wanted to have a large reference guide for individual card effects, along with supporting imagery. You will find this on the reverse side of the rule sheet so you can easily refer to it as you play if required.
We thought it would be cool to run some live streams of Kingless. Over the next few weeks, we will lock in a date/time and announce via our social media channels. We would love for you to join us in a round or two of Kingless. Don’t worry if you can’t make it, we will record and put the videos up on our YouTube channel.
In the interest of being open, we wanted to share some details on our timeline. This is all subject to change, of course. We hope to have the remaining cards complete and signed off by the middle of July. This will allow us to have the proofs ready with the manufacturer (Panda Game Manufacturing) and start the process of manufacturing shortly after that.
As we have more concrete dates we will provide further updates. But at this stage, we are on track!
July is going to be a big month, so look out for our update in a few weeks time.
As always, hit us up on the socials with any questions or just drop by and say hi!
See you in July 👋
Alex, Nathan and Sebastian.
P.S. We now have an official Merch store on Cotton Bureau. If you're interested in a Kingless or Limited Edition Two19 T-shirt, they are now available! We would love to grow this over time, so if there is anything you would like to see, let us know! https://cottonbureau.com/people/two19
