Firstly, a BIG thank you to everyone who supported Xi Cards on Kickstarter. The comments, ideas and show of interest have been a huge boost for the game. Unfortunately, the project didn't quite make its target in time. However, a lot has been learned and the game is still primed for release, albeit a little later than it would have been!
So, what's next for Xi Cards?
The UK Games EXPO 2014.
Xi Cards 2014 stand is going to bigger and better than before:
Like at the 2013 event there will be space for visitors to playtest the game with each other and the games creators. We'll be showing off some new deck designs and of course the new look of the cards.
We're creating a small, limited edition, first print run of Xi Cards ready to sell at the UK Games EXPO event. This will be the very first time anyone has been able to buy all of the cards and in this initial printing run each card will be marked “First Edition”. After the event any remaining stock will be available for purchase online, but if you want to be the first to get Xi Cards come to the expo! We'll also do free card signing for any interested parties :)
For more details of what packs will be available see the new "Where to Buy" page.
How do you like the idea of being the Xi Cards World Champion? We'll be running Xi Cards official first limited play World Championship as an evening event and anyone will be able to sign up during the day! There will be exclusive prizes and each competitor will have the option of having their name and new Xi Cards World ranking published online. YOU could be number one!
- Rift Fortress
What was going to be our Kickstarter exclusive card is still prepared for our supporters – contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the event with your name and why you love Xi and we'll have a Rift Fortress waiting for you at our stand. Any of our Kickstarter supporters will also be able to collect their Rift Fortress by coming to the stand and letting us know what their pledge was.
See you there!
