Tali Factory update
7 days ago – Thu, Nov 14, 2019 at 12:12:28 AM

Hi everyone,

I was hoping to let everyone know that the Tali game, and add-ons was on a ship and on its way by now but we have been delayed at the factory again.  Also it seems they made the wrong number of Red Knuckle Bones and now need to make allot more White ones.

I am still fighting like made to get everyone's rewards to them before Christmas.  I will be using Air freight to send at least the amount needed for all the backers.

So I wanted to ask everyone to see if the factory mistake which was made, we should just run with and maybe save some time.

We did end up getting the Red Knuckle Bone stretch goal, however it was suppose to just add one more knuckle bone die as a reward only to the Knuckle Bone only reward, not make all of the Knuckle Bone Only rewards all red as the factory got confused.  So my question is, what if we did make the Knuckle Bone only reward only with red Knuckle Bones.  Who would have huge issues with that?  If you were getting the Base Game of Tali, you will be getting the White Knuckle Bones.  In almost all cases, backers are also getting the additional set of knuckle bone dice only sets and then would get the 5 additional red knuckle bones (To be clear this was suppose to be an additional set of 4 white knuckle bones and I was adding the red one as a stretch goal achievement).

Here are pictures of the Knuckle Bones for everyone to help in seeing if the 5 Red Only knuckle bones is an alright substitution, in order for the backers to get the items before Christmas.

Please reply with your thoughts and votes on this. 

The set included with the Tali Base game, plus all the other game contents.

The set which is supposed too be included with the Knuckle Bone Only Reward

This is what the factory thought they were making for the Knuckle Bone Only sets.

So let me know what you think.

If we still go with the original plan, does not mean we will miss our shipping window for certain, it just may remove one variable as I will be asking the factory to at least complete 1/2 the production eother way to ship to the backers as fast as possible.

I have recieved the pronted copies of the digital proofs    Here are some images of the game and parts.  It will be another week till I get proofs of the Knuckle bones themselves so what you see of them are either fill ons from my 3D printed prototypes or early tests from the factory (thier 3D prints to make the molds).

Here is the Character Expansion to 10 Players:

Tali: Pledge manager Update and Red Knuckle Bone Die Stretch Goal
6 months ago – Tue, Jun 04, 2019 at 01:16:53 AM

I have tentatively set the combined funding level for $10,000 for unlocking the Red Die. This is because the BackerKit added funds will include all the shipping funds and due to the increased costs with the soon to be imposed tariffs.

We are currently sitting at $8,197 funds raised, so we need only about $1800 more to unlock the Red Knuckle Bone die.

We have 56% of the Backers who have responded to the BackerKit survey, so far.

So with a little time, we should be able to unlock the Red Knuckle Bone die, with little problem.

To help this happen faster, let your friends know and share the Pre-Order page as every Pre-Order will increase us closer to the $10,000 goal as will any add-ons all of you add to your own orders.


Tali: Pledge Manager opening this weekend
6 months ago – Tue, May 21, 2019 at 11:54:57 PM

Everyone,  been working hard to get the survey manager ready for everyone.   I will be adding the Red Knuckle Bone if we hit a combined $10k of funding (original kickstarter + BackerKit additional orders) before we lock the orders.  So consider letting your friends know or adding to your order so we can add the mystical Red knuckle Bone to everyone's pledge.  BackerKit will use the same email which you use for kickstarter.   If you want to use a different email for BackerKit, please PM me.


Tali: Final Hour
7 months ago – Sun, Apr 21, 2019 at 09:24:53 PM

I want to thank everyone for making Tali a reality.  In these last 45 minutes, consider upgrading or pre-paying some of the shipping costs to help us get the rest of the way to the Red Knuckle Bone stretch goal.   We only need about $600 more in funding to unlock this stretch goal.   And remember if you spend $50 or more, you will get an extra set of knuckle bones.  And if you spend $100 or more, you will get an extra set of 80 metal coins.  Consider the extra set as a Christmas gift as we will be shipping before then.
