November Update: Files being sent to manufacturer this week, new review, and more!
23 days ago – Mon, Nov 06, 2023 at 07:05:45 AM

Happy November! 

I can't believe how fast the time is going - Halloween already came and left. The good news is that the game is on schedule. The last few art pieces are finished, and I'm finalizing the files for printing. Barring any glaring errors discovered during the final review, I'll be sending everything out for print this week.

Second, a new video posted this week, curtousey of Genus Solo. The video is in German. Let me know what you think if you speak German. He and I met up at Essen to play the game, and I sent him home with an early demo copy I had available.  

Third, my updates have shared characters a lot, but not items. partly because characters are who you play. The game does have a lot of fantastic item art, such as these pieces:

A lot of the items were done by a wonderful artist named Fabian Parente, including both of these items. 

Third, I added games to the BGG con schedule in Dallas. I'll be bringing the full Four Horsemen game. If you're interested in playing, please sign up!

Finally, thank you everyone who completed their pledge! Originally, the pledge manager was scheduled to close March 1. However, we might be able to move that up and ship earlier. This depends largely on manufacturing. Please send me a DM if you need the pledge manager to stay open until March. Otherwise I will push to get everything closed so we can start distribution a little bit earlier. I don't want to close the pledge manager before February as I don't want people getting charged during the holidays.

Thank you for reading!


Pledge Manager Open!
about 1 month ago – Wed, Oct 25, 2023 at 01:23:03 PM

Hi all! 

The pledge manager is now open!  If you haven't already received an invite, you should receive one before the end of the day. Thank you for being patient while we figured out the technical issues.  

As promised, the Norse, Egyptian, and Chinese expansions are available as individual add-ons. I also added an upgrade for the dual-layered hero boards.  Unfortunately, there was one change I made that impacts a couple of you. While reviewing the game with the manufacturer, I found that I couldn't economically produce both a standee and mini version for each add-on expansion of the game (based on the number of backers).  Because I had to choose one or the other, I went with the standee version for individual expansions.  

Please note that this change only impacts expansions included as add-ons. The Deluxe and Apocalypse (all-in) pledge still include all of the expected minis.  The couple of people who added the mini version of the Norse expansion during Kickstarter will see a credit for the difference between the standee and mini version of the expansion. I am very sorry about the inconvenience, and please reach out to me with any concerns.

As for delivery, everything is still on track for delivery next for next August. The manufacturer already has the minis and will be creating molds soon. The rest of the contents are being finalized now. Let me know if you are interested in seeing anything about the game.

Thanks again for joining me on getting this game out to the world!

Late pledges open! Essen issues,
about 2 months ago – Mon, Oct 09, 2023 at 05:44:36 PM

Hi everyone! Good news! The pledge manager is open for late pledges.  You can make late pledges here: Four Horsemen Late Pledges .  

I added the dual-layer boards as an option.  I only did the "all-in" dual-layer boards. If there is sufficient interest in dual-layered for just the base game, let me know, and I can add that. The packaging on it is pretty expensive so I'd probably need at least a dozen non-Baby Apocalypse pledges interested.

We're still working out a couple of issues with the pledge manager, but the pledge manager should go live soon!

In other news, Essen was a lot of fun but super chaotic. My deepest apologies for anyone who tried to meet up and was thrown off by the messy arrangement. If you didn't get a chance to meet up there, let me know, and I'll gladly demo it on TTS. Sorry again about the confusion on the booth and timing. 

I've included some images from the event, which was certainly a LOT different than I expected. I'm used to board game conferences - this was a trade conference. 

Essen and finished stretch goal art

Hi all, 

Next week is Essen Spiel. I'll be there Th-Sat if you're interested in playing a game or two.  Feel free to PM me, and I'll happily meet up! We'll be launching the pledge manager right after that so expect an announcement about next week.

In the meantime, enjoy the final illustrations of Krampus' two event cards - Holiday Cheer and The Naughty List.

Lilith, Behemoth, and Standees.

Hi all! I've been working on setting up the pledge manager and finishing the stretch goals.  In fact, Lilith as a character had her first playtest yesterday.  I may do a video with her soon as she's very unique. She sacrifices two relics per hour, but demons killed with a sacrificed relic are actually recruited to her cause and become followers.

The Behemoth art is finished! Thank you for voting!

Finally, there was a request to show the standees. You can see some of them here:
