Let's hear it for our backers!

Since our Kickstarter campaign wrapped up, we've been busy, busy, busy here are Vampsylvania headquarters. Naturally, we've been ordering components...

...and we've been working on the artwork for the custom cards for our backers at the "Heroic Villager" reward level. It looks like we're going to be able to deliver the game months ahead of schedule, too, and we're pretty darned excited about that. You're all going to be playing Vampsylvania very, very soon!

But let's pause for a moment to thank the folks who made all of this possible: our backers! As promised during the campaign, we've added a new page to the site honoring the fine folks whose generosity, enthusiasm, and faith in our game helped us turn Vampsylvania into a reality.  You're the best, gang. We thank you from the bottom of our cold, undead hearts.

That vamps told us to say that last bit.

In other news, Vampsylvania creator C. Michael Hall is gearing up to launch an all-new game via Kickstarter! It's called Pickle Pickle Pepper, and you can visit its Facebook page to get all the details about the game and the campaign, which kicks off on April 11. We hope to see you all there!

The final day of our Kickstarter campaign!

Here we are, folks: it's the final day of the Vampsylvania Kickstarter campaign! If you're already a backer, you know how grateful we are for your generosity and support. Thanks to you, we've raised over 270% of our original funding goal!  If you're not yet a backer, though--if for some crazy reason you've been waiting to pledge, or you've been on the fence about pledging--this is your last chance to climb aboard the fun train to Vampsylvania!
"Climb aboard the fun train to...?" No. We'll put that potential slogan right back where we found it and pretend this didn't happen.
But anyway, it's the final day! Let's spread the word one last time and finish strong. This campaign has been a wonderful experience, thanks to each and every one of you. We can't wait to get the game onto your tabletops and into your hearts, where it will remain, forever, like some kind of incurable parasitic infection! Um, the most adorable kind of incurable parasitic infection! Or, y'know...something less gross.
Geez, what they say really is true: By the end of a campaign, all the good hyperbole has been used up...
Finish strong!

VAMPSYLVANIA game demos with creator C. Michael Hall at Portland's Guardian Games!

What's more exciting than the fact that the Vampsylvania Kickstarter campaign is 230% funded and still gaining ground? Why, the opportunity to actually play Vampsylvania months before its release, that's what! Not exciting enough for you? Well, how about we do this in one of the Northwest's greatest gaming stores?
This Saturday, February 27, from 1:00 to 4:00pm, Vampsylvania creator C. Michael Hall will be running live demos at Portland's gaming mega-store, Guardian Games! If you've never been there, Guardian Games is a wonder to behold. They've got a vast (and we do mean vast) selection of games, an incredible amount of table space for playing, and a jam-packed calendar of gaming events. We're thrilled to give Guardian customers a chance to check out Vampsylvania firsthand, and if you live in the Portland, OR area, we hope to see you there!

Still going strong...and looking for reviewers!

Our Kickstarter campaign is still rolling ahead full steam! We're currently at over 210% of our initial funding goal. We've already hit one stretch goal, and we've got our sights set on hitting another. Have you pledged your support yet? No? Well, click your way over the the campaign and get to it! Your support during the campaign enriches the game by enabling us to offer more stuff. Besides, you don't want to miss all your chances to land exclusive cards that will never be offered at the retail level!

SUCCESS! Vampsylvania is fully funded on Kickstarter!

What an incredible few days it has been! Our Kickstarter campaign has been very successful so far: we hit our funding goal on the first day, and we're currently at 173% of our funding goal! 

Of course, we'd love to keep the ball rolling. We've already added an add-on expansion to the available rewards--it's called "Strange Visitors" and draws heavily on international influences for inspiration--and we'd love to be able to offer even more. So follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and share the link to our Kickstarter campaign! And if you're affiliated with a podcast that might be interested in talking about Vampsylvania, please, contact us...we'd love to!
