The End of the (Instant) Universe
Last Thursday our kickstarter campaign for sci fi concept cards ended. It was, all things, considered, a rousing success.
The final tally was £5,544 and 244 backers. Thank you to all our backers – we couldn’t do this without you and we like doing this!
We have reached the stretch goals for two extra cards per deck, and three extra suit symbols.
What Remains To Be Done
Elvis may have gone home to live among the stars, but we still have work to do. There are a few cards left to write, more now we have reached that stretch goal, and we need to commission more art.
Then comes the process of proofreading. To be honest it’s my least favourite part of the job, not least because I’m not very good at it. Fortunately Ali is, and we have a couple of volunteers to aid in the process. It is very necessary, though – I am rather prone to making typos. By the time it goes to print I am confident that every error but one will be squashed (that one will show up three weeks later…).
After that is done we send files to the printers, and wait anxiously for them to send us boxes of decks.
Then we package and post them to the backers.
If you missed the Kickstarter it’s not too late to get in on the action – you can still join us on Backerkit
