5:00pm CT, so just under an hour from now. 

An hour and twenty minutes from now I'd argue, since it's always been 18:00 central...

6:00 pm central.  Not 5:00.

Unless they've changed it, it's this.  18:00 central time.

Is that right? Seems like, at least in the past, people have been posting things from the Twitch stream while I'm at work, and I get off work at 7pm EST, which would be 6pm Central...

Daylight Savings Time kicked in this past Sunday, so that might affect it if someone lives in an area without it.

Did something change? 

Twitch says they're on in 17 minutes.

I'm guessing daylight savings time made a few things wonky...

What time is the Twitch again? I have never done it before, but I'd like to get in on this giveaway thing...

 

DO IT!  I got my Colossal Skeleton (and arachno-assassin) on Monday or Tuesday (took about a week and a half total to get to me).  Since it shipped in October, I even got the free Cancer Pink bottle of paint ::P:  Good thing I got all those bottles of Graveyard Bone in the Ghoulie Bags. :ik_oops:

 

It unexpectedly paid me back for the bottle I gave one of my players, who needed a pink of some sort to paint the tail of his new mini... Dirty rotten DM had him turn into a wererat...  Took us about 3 months (?) to play through the month of time in-game since he'd been bitten.  He thought he was in the clear.  Then the next full moon rose...

I'm affected by DST as well, so that shouldn't be it...

Well, they're only a couple of minutes from the countdown timer running out and they haven't put up the video stream yet so I'm guessing it's gonna be in an hour.

I don't know what to tell you.  It's been Thursdays at 6:00 pm Central since I started watching in late September, and they've always stated verbally that it is at 6:00 pm central.

I think the problem is that the timer is not connected to the schedule.

The KS Boat will only come with one figurehead, but they are wanting to make multiple figureheads at retail.  They might try to add the extras as an add-on in the PM.  They will choose the official retail name of the ship by next Thursday (possibly as a user poll among twitch, KS comments, etc.)

 

Not official, but they want to make the masts attached via magnets.  Hoping/planning to make the ship in hard ABS plastic.  Hoping they can make it in different colors (glow-in-the-dark, translucent, etc.)

Reaper has finalized an agreement with a facility in Germany to ship through them, in the case Brexit is finalized, so EU pricing should be similar to previous Bones Kickstarters.

It seems to me Ron likes to hope for a lot, and then eventually has to walk a lot of it back.

 

I would rather they did the research first and then reported back with what's actually feasible later.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
