Latest Updates from Our Project:

Orders are locked!
about 1 month ago – Thu, Apr 08, 2021 at 11:24:56 PM

Dear backers,

We have closed all pledge orders and pre-orders on BackerKit. They will effectively close in 48 hours, meaning that if you want to make some final changes to your pledge, it's now or never. After those 48 hours, you won't be able to change anything except your shipping address. The latter is important to notice, you will be able to change your shipping address until about a month before we ship out boxes. No stress there. 

For those people that forgot to complete their order, please do it sooner than later. If you are experiencing any issues, please send us a message through our contact form.


Development update

We are happy to announce that all development on the extra content (double-sided project tabs, new donation tiles, "A new beginning" expansion, and all 16 new departments) is finished. Ian O'Toole is hard at work now to finish all graphics on this. Once we receive the new artwork, we will be sharing these progressively with you. 


Have a great end of your week!

Update on the Pledge manager and Game development.
about 1 month ago – Wed, Mar 31, 2021 at 09:05:19 PM

Pledge Manager updates

Dear backers, the pledge manager has been going mostly smoothly, we have 84% of you that have filled in and completed the surveys, which is awesome. We are getting very close indeed. We do know, however, that a tiny number of backers haven't closed their orders due to some problems with shipping fees and discounts not being calculated. We wanted to address these issues now and let you know we have a solution. 

Added copies issues

The main issues some backers experienced with the Pledge manager, is when someone added 1 or 2 extra single copies to their order. Sometimes, the wrong shipping price would be added, or the discount for 3/6 or more copies wasn't calculated properly. We have fixed most orders that had that issue, but if you still do, please send us a message through Kickstarter, or via www.quined.nl/contact/. Please avoid asking a question in the comments, that's much harder for us to follow up on. 


Rulebook question

We have been getting some questions too about the rulebook in the box, so we wanted to clarify that every backer will be getting one rulebook in the language that you choose in the pledge manager. This also true if you order 3-packs, or 6-packs of the game, all games in your pledge will come with one rulebook in the language of your choice. 


Pick-up at Quined HQ

Some more local backers have asked if there would be a possibility to come and pick up their game at our HQ in Oud-Beijerland. That is indeed possible! All you have to do is go back to your order in the pledge manager and in the shipping tan, change your country to "Local Pickup, and change all address details to "N/A." Don't forget to click on "NEXT" to confirm.

Bounces

We have also had some issues with backers not getting their PM, but that's because some of you had e-mail addresses saved in your Kickstarter profile that were erroneous and bounced. If you still haven't received an invitation for the pledge manager, please send us a message here on Kickstarter or through our online contact form with your correct e-mail address, so we can sort this out and make sure you get your invitation. 


Development

In the meantime, we are busy with work on the insert. The rulebook is close to be sent to all partners, which means the translations can start soon as well. We have also been quite busy at all the added content. We are close to finishing development on these, so that Ian can start designing these, and making the proposed changes to the base game we have developed thanks to your invaluable feedback. So yes, development is finally coming to a close, and we will be sharing details of all the changes and additions throughout April and May. 

What we can already announce is that the Solo Mode will contain 20 new additional cards to make your solo experience even more challenging. We are adding this to each copy of Carnegie deluxe, free of charge. And we will of course increase the Card sleeve count, free of charge too. 


Goods cubes

In our playtests, a number have experienced running out of goods cubes, especially in a  4-player game.  Not by much, and as the rules state: if you run out of cubes, you can replace them by any suitable substitute, but we felt it would be a shame if that happens too often. So we will add 5 larger goods cubes to each copy of Carnegie, worth 5 goods cubes, to make sure you never run out. We will ALSO apply this for the metal cubes, free of charge. 



That was it for this update. Sorry it took us a while to respond to some of you, we just wanted to make sure we had every bit of information before sending out this update. We remain very committed to making sure every pledge is correct, and to making Carnegie deluxe a very special game indeed.


Have a great sunday!


Q. 

All surveys are out!
about 2 months ago – Sun, Mar 14, 2021 at 01:32:40 AM

All surveys have been sent!

Hello everyone, we are pleased to announce that all surveys for the pledge manager have been sent out. However, please note that it can take several days before everyone actually gets their pledge manager invite in their inbox. We will send out another update soon to confirm when all surveys should have been received. So until then, do not ask us if you should have received your invitation, because the answer will be no :) 

If you have any questions, please use the customer support from BackerKit through the pledge manager itself. We will not respond to inquiries via the comments,  as there is no traceability for us. However, as always, if you do get stuck somewhere, please use the contact form on the Quined Website.


Have a great weekend everyone, and till next time!

Pledge Manager has started
about 2 months ago – Sat, Mar 13, 2021 at 05:23:37 AM

Pledge Manager has started

Dear backers, 

Our apologies for not posting an update sooner, setting up the pledge manager has been a lot more work than anticipated, because we had to make sure everything was set up correctly, but we have just sent out  the first few invitations. We are doing a so-called "smoke test", meaning about 5% of backers will receive their invitation today. This helps us filter out any hiccups before sending out the surveys to the remaining 95%. If all goes well, we should send out everyone's invitation by Saturday. 

Development news

In the meantime, Xavier Georges has been working hard on the extra content. We are playtesting all the new departments at the moment, and the development of the double-sided tabs is also nearly finished at this point. Xavier has also made some changes to the base game. After receiving so much feedback, some departments have been tweaked, the board and player board too... it's all in the tiny details at this point, but we love a good perfectionist. We should be able to post a definitive version of the rules later this month, and start preproduction and translations in April. 


Have a great weekend, and talk to you soon!
