Hi Folks! I wanted to update you on a few nifty things that are happening...
1. Feudum Rules on Dized!
I met these folks at Gen Con and they are really committed to making games more accessible to the masses via interactive rulebooks and tutorials. Feudum rules are in the works and will be available soon! Be sure to offer your support on Dized's kickstarter campaign happening right now!
2. Feudum on Tabletop Simulator by Berserk!
Berserk Games and I have been working feverishly on a custom DLC to be released on Steam through Tabletop Simulator! The goal is to release Q1 of 2019, and it's going to be absolutely stunning, complete with a Feudum-themed 3D environment! Berserk plans on offering a 20% discount on release unlocking all expansions—so be sure to keep your eyes open!
3. Feudum Expansion on Kickstarter!
Folks, you may have heard rumors about this already but in case you haven't, Odd Bird Games will be launching an expansion called Feudum: Rudders & Ramparts featuring official artisan-edition vessels and castles! Jointly crafted by Justin Schultz, Bruce Monson and Scott Ryan, the deluxe components may be used to play a military variant of the game—or enjoyed solely for their beauty. I will publish the Kickstarter preview page as soon as it is ready. The launch will happen March 1, 2019 with delivery slated for December 2019. Here is a sneak peek at the prototypes. Follow/Like Feudum on Facebook for updates!
4. Feudum on the Cover of the CBT!
The Columbia Business Times honored me with a feature story in their magazine! The journalist did a spectacular job of thoroughly describing all the ins-and-outs of the business. I hope you enjoy! By the way, any "smolder" that you see on my face is purely accidental.

I am continually amazed at how wonderfully engaged this Feudum community has been and continues to be. Your ongoing support and candid feedback has resulted in the following:
Vin d’jeu Game of the Year 2018
Thanks to your votes and a strong Feudum community in France, Feudum WON Vin d’jeu's Game of the Year—reader's choice! I am honored by this, so thank you!
100% Fixed Alter Ego Conquer Cards
After reading your comments, I felt horrible that this issue was not completely resolved. So, I decided to reprint six (6) corrected Conquer Cards for the Alter Ego Expansion that will correct all errors. For those that want perfection, a set of 6 cards will be available for FREE, plus the cost of shipping on the Odd Bird Games store in a few months.
Alternatively, I have uploaded two files on Board Game Geek that you may use in lieu of ordering the corrected cards:
Nominated for Game of the Year + Embarrassing Goof

I have some exciting news and some rather ridiculous news. First the exciting news...
Feudum Nominated for Game of the Year—Vote to Win!
Feudum has been nominated for Game of the Year by the Vindjeu, who bestows the title, "Wine of the Year" onto winners in various categories including one selected by you! Would you take a minute to vote for your top 3 games for a chance to win one of 6 prizes! The ranking is in real time, so you can see how Feudum is doing! The site is in French, but you can use your browser to translate the page. One vote per person. The deadline is September 18. The results will be published on September 19th. Winners will receive one of 6 prizes: Santorini, Battle for Rokugan, Race to the New Foundland, Lowlands, Project Gaia and Pandemic Rising Water. (Thanks to Asmodée for their support).
Alter Ego Cards exchanged One Error for Another
Now the ridiculous news...Perhaps I shouldn't even mention this in the same post, but oh well. I'm embarrassed to admit that my good intentions were thwarted by another error. As some of you know, the original Alter Ego Expansion cards failed to include two symbols in the upper right-hand corner of the card. The "Can't play x2" symbol and the "Can't play as last card" symbol.
Although these symbols are not critical to game play (as the rules state that the cards function exactly like the base game cards), I felt the need to correct this and made the replacement set available to anyone who requested them. Shockingly, the "2/4" veneration points symbol on the left was omitted during the fix. While my artist Justin Schultz and animator Stephen Noce were both involved, it was ultimately my responsibility to catch these errors, and I failed. In fact, I found the very file that I sent to Stephen, pointing out the icons that Justin had omitted, but alas, you can see I left out the "2/4" symbol. After spending a considerable amount of time and money on this, I hope that you will understand if I don't reprint these a third time. Many have mentioned to me that either set is functional, and I hope you concur. I welcome your thoughts and criticisms. Please go easy on me. : )
