In the past many days, Eric and I were struggling and trying to figure out another launch of Red Cliffs that would make sense to all of us and the game itself.
I think we do now.
During the process of downsizing the entire game, we figured out a way to replace the game board without affecting the strategy of the game and the rules. The new component is called “Score Card”, and now each game will come with seven of them. You may find more information on Take 3.
Besides the original packaging on Reload, we added a new Tuck Box Edition in Take 3. It comes in a smaller tuck box without score board and markers. Its retail price is $18, and we are Kickstarting it for $15. Now Red Cliffs is more affordable and portable.
Btw, I forgot to add 15 “zero” cards in the component section on the Reload page. It is my bad, and it will be added on to Take 3.
As for Essen, unfortunately Red Cliffs is going to miss Essen Spiel 2012, but Essen Spiel 2013 pickup option is available for the friendly frequent Essen goers.
Finally, Take 3 is live now with a 15 day funding duration. During the last few days, we will demo Red Cliffs in Strategicon in Los Angeles. If you are around, please drop and say hi and let’s play The Battle of Red Cliffs and many other fun games.
Thank you for your awesomeness and hope to have you again on Take 3.
