Hi there. I would like to write a "thank you" letter addressed to Serious Poulp and make it open, so I believe this forum is the best place to post it.
To start with, I discovered 7th Continent somewhere around November 2017 and was crushed that I had missed. It was a relief when you announced re-opening of the pledge manager. Well, it was sad as well, as the reason behind it were the issues with cards in wave 1, but still, I was getting the chance to put my hands on the game, that seemed to be very special. And it was possible only to your outstanding customer service and decision to re-print cards for everyone. Thank you for that!
Obviously, when PM re-opened in July 2018, I went for it, ordered full game-play components and the dice bones and the countdown started. Then another delays started to occur along the way, but I didn't really mind, as you kept the communications frequent and clear. It was evident that rush was one of the main causes of the 1st wave issues, so I was still happy and confident that I would receive a perfectly produced game. Another thanks is for running the KS campaign in the manner you did.
Finally, at the sunny day of 29th May 2019 I got my big box, packed very secured and with all the content I ordered. Well, almost, as the core box was mistakenly in French. I've raised a ticked and... received an answer with proposed (and satisfactory) solution within an 1 hour. During 2nd wave fulfillment, tons of packages being sent and presumably a lot of backers contacting you at the time. As if all that weren’t enough, an English core box was sent to me 7 working days later. Just another evidence of your exceptional approach to your customers, that's insane and I can't appreciate it enough!
So the game itself... is it perfect? Well, no, it is not. It is, however, an excellent, unique game, one of the best games I've ever played (I am more into competitive PvP games, but 7th Continent is surely the best co-op game I've had chance to play). Before I go further, please note that I treat the game with all the content/expansions added as a one whole. That being said, I love how thematic it feels via presentation, art and mechanics and it is hard to believe how well the exploration/survive aspects of the game are designed (
). It's great that there's no set story there, but instead you are allowed to create your own adventure. One of my concerns was that once the continent is fully explored, the game will be essentially done, and I am really amazed how wrong I was. The continent is huge and I am not really sure now whether it will be possible to see every secret there's is in the legitimate way. And even if one day I map everything, the game still can be challenging by taking multiple courses run and/or with the hardcore mode activated. What's more, my wife loves the 7th Continent as much as I do, so we are can collectively sink into the game. Tons and tons of fun stuff. But why then it's not perfect for me?
little flavors like being bloody attracting predators during hunt, or making hunt easier in the snowy weather due to footprints are mind blowing... and there's so many of such little things
To sum up, you have all done a wonderful job at Serious Poulp and I can't thank you enough. Of couse Bruno and Ludovic receive the most appreciation as the designers, but I'd also like to thank Sarah from customer service, Firebird for the fora moderation, Kamille for the website, and all the other who participated in this successful project, that I cannot name. Kudos!
Oh, and by the way - I am sure that I will support 7th Citadel on day 1.
Is there a card list available somewhere for the 2nd KS expansions ("What goes up, must come down", "The flying roots" and "Comfort creatures"), or at least number of new cards per type? As a late newcomer (ordered the game when PM re-opened), I would like to prepare myself for 2nd wave arrival (I just can't wait!) and get the sleeves ready, for action and exploration cards at minimum.
Also, would the 50 microns thick sleeves do the trick, or do I necessarily required the 90 ones?
