    @CK Lai Congratulations! At least you can enjoy the game now.

    If you need some inspiration to make custom arenas, i posted some a while back: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2348243/custom-arenas-post-yours-here

    Can recommend the “ring of betrayal” layout for a more tactical battle or advanced tactics mode.

    I also still didn’t receive the miniatures. Those are in the hands of Archon Studios and they have been shipping them out at the lowest rate possible (feels like 3 packages per month) and then take a break to ship their own games for half a year again. And then send one package again.

    I do hope that they finally finish shipping these out, mostly because the creators can tell the whole story of what actually happened when it’s done.

    Still didn’t get the miniatures yet. Yes all hero cards and figures are doubled so you can pick the same heroes or play mirror matches if you want. And yes, the contents shown in the rulebook are outdated since it was printed long before full completion and things changed.
    About the demigod deck. That is the original gamemode. It is not used in the final version but was included still because it was promised in the kickstarter. The original idea was that the players are the demigods and have their deck of cards instead of having the actual demigods in the arena. Rules how to play with this original mode can’t really be found. You can make your own rules or take them from anyone else who made up their own. I read things like splitting the cards into three decks according to the number of each cards (1 deck each player and 1 for both to draw from and then you choose from which deck you draw. Can’t remember exactly but was something like 3 cards in hand and you can play one each round or something)

    Indeed, they do look great! Sure, go ahead. Took around 2.5-3 weeks. Not too long and they were packaged very safe.

    Hah! Sorry to dig this one out, just stumbled upon it. Will you look at that. Was afraid back then about a possible TI 4th edition and two years later it was released, indeed.

    Finally got myself a pair of those Combo Coffee Mugs with maroon color. And i’ll gladly make a donation. Though i rather use the direct way than using patreon (eventhough i’m gonna miss out on those exclusives, oh well)

    Well, what can i say about the closing of the forums. After all i am the most active one of all…hope you read the dripping sarcasm.
    I do enjoy reading about all kinds of boardgame related things and i also do like this forum to share some things every once in a while. Often i can’t really participate in discussions, since a lot of the games are tabletop wargames and i don’t play any of them (not that i would not like it. I just don’t have any). I do enjoy to paint and see painted miniatures though. I don’t use instagram or twitter.

    But do what makes you happy of course. If the forums are more of a hassle than a joy to you, then close them and make space for other thoughts.

    Concerning 2020. I do not know. I am thankful for some of the rules summaries, i enjoy the battlereport/unboxing/painting videos, you got me into using foamcore and i even got myself a tablemat from deepcutstudios because of your video. Foamcore probably was how i originally discovered the order. I am open for new things, what do you have in mind?

    Absolutely. I made some very good and some bad kickstarter experiences. This one at least delivers in the end (who knows if this game will ever be available retail? I sure hope so for the creators). Then there’s this one 3dprinter campaign i backed years ago….
    Things like these did indeed make me more cautious when backing any kickstarter. Of course some campaigns are really worth it money-wise with all the stretchgoals they pump out (eventhough, does anyone ever play all the content you get in the end?) and then there are others that are available at retail at an even lower price making you wonder why not just wait a bit and be on the safe side. And then again it’s exciting to see where a project goes in the process.

    Anyway, i played Demigods a couple more times now and can say that it is a very versatile game. You can build your own arenas and just give out everything random and have a fun time. Or go at it very competitive, which already starts in the picking phase to build your team (very close experience to a moba game, trying to counterpick the enemy while building a strong team yourself). Or anything inbetween.

    Just hope those miniatures don’t take another 5 years. Was looking forward to painting them.

    I can also highly recommend a Winsor & Newton (even though i like your version too UH :D) series 7; at least a 1 (not the miniature one)
    Link for ease: http://m.winsornewton.com/row/shop/brushes/water-colour/series-7-kolinsky-sable-brushes/series-7-kolinsky-sable-brush-round-short-handle-size-000-brush-5007030

    And a wet palette. Making one yourself is very easy and will greatly improve the worktime and -flow.
    Here’s a nice guide to diy: http://massivevoodoo.blogspot.ch/2009/10/tutorial-wet-palette.html?m=1

    As for colors i guess everyone has his own favorites. I use some GW, some army painter and some vallejo model color. Anything will be fine i guess.
