Hello! I hope you had a great Easter weekend! 🐇🥚
We had an exciting day today! The digital proof arrived in the mail! This is the copy that the manufacturers send for us to double check the printing and packing of everything before starting the mass production.
We did a once over and so far everything looks good! We're going to be looking over the colors and wording of everything a couple more times before giving the final okay, but I definitely wanted to share some pictures!
We are so excited! With every step we are getting closer to getting the game to your door.
It was really special to see the big and full travel guide as well as the adorable reminder tokens. Because of your support we were able to add even more to this game. You are the best. <3
Surveys, French Version, Custom Bunnies!

Hello there! Updates have slowed down a bit since we are mainly waiting on a proof from our manufacturer, but I have a couple of updates!
89% of our backers have finished our Backerkit surveys which is great! But I just wanted to have a quick reminder to anyone who hasn't filled out the survey yet, please check for an email from Backerkit or message me here so we can get your info and ship you your game!
Bunny Party in French!
Special thanks to Allen Boisclair who translated Bunny Party at Maple Valley into French, we now have the Print and Play, Tabletopia, and Tabletop SImulator all available in French!
We have been working on some of the custom bunnies for backers who backed the Maple Valley Resident pledge level and I thought I'd show off their ideas for custom bunnies (with their permission of course!)
(Just a reminder: these cards are not officially part of the game!)
What do you think of the custom bunnies? Let us know! I think Holly has been doing such a wonderful job on the artwork. :)
Until next time!
Surveys sent out! Hidden stretch goal?

I hope you are having a good Tuesday! Lots of cool new game Kickstarters today if you are interested in browsing. :)
Bunny Party Surveys have been sent!
An email from Backerkit should have landed in your inbox. If you can't find it, please check your spam folder. If you still can't find it, feel free to message me!
It's very important to fill out your survey so you can pay for shipping and we can collect your mailing address. If you don't, we can't get the game to you! You will be able to update your address before we actually ship out the game in case you plan on moving. I'll send out a last call to update mailing addresses before we ship out the game.
We haven't talked at all about card quality! We focused our stretch goals on adding extra components to the game and always knew if we went over our goal we'd increase the quality of the cards and better showcase Holly's artwork. :)
Our original quote was for 280 gsm blue core cards. This is what the Pokemon tcg and Magic the Gathering typically use. We would have used this if we had just reached our goal of $3,800.
But since we surpassed our goal (more than 200%!) we've decided we're going to go with 310gsm black core cards! This won't make too big of a noticeable difference to most players, but we're so proud of this game and wanted to spend all the extra funds towards making the game as good as we can!
We are able to do this because of your support and it means so much to us. Thank you once again. :)
Pledge manager soon, French translation and talent talk!

Hey there! It's been a little bit. I hope you've had a good week and a half. :)
Just thought I'd pop in and share a couple things happening:
We will be using Backerkit as our pledge manager and the surveys will be going out soon! We'll be running a smoke test (so a few of you will get a survey) and then we'll send it out to everyone. I'll let you know when that happens but just wanted to give a quick heads up!
We are very excited to announce that we had someone contact us offering to do a French fan translation of Bunny Party! Allen Boisclair did an awesome job and finished translating the rules and the cards! We won't be doing a print run in French, but we will be putting it on Tabletop Simulator, Tabletopia and have it available as a print and play!
Things have been really busy and we've been prioritizing getting the pledge manager up and the manufacturing stuff done first but wanted to announce that it is coming.
The Portland Indie Game Squad does an event called Talent Talks! It's being streamed tonight at 7:00pm PST and I will be doing a talk on running a Kickstarter! A few of you have reached out to me about game making and Kickstarter advice so I thought I'd pass it along.
See more about the event here. There are lots of cool talks happening! So check out their twitch page tonight if you're interested. I will be in the chat so hope to see you there. :)
Thank you for being awesome!
Getting ready for the Bunny Party!

What a fun campaign!
The campaign has finished! Hurray!!
It was an absolute blast! We hit our funding goal with some extra stretch goals and finally named all three of the bunnies that needed names!
That was so much fun. Thank you everyone for your pledges, kind words and overall support! We could not make this game a reality without you and we're so excited to get started!
The campaign might be over but we're not going anywhere! We still have plenty of things to do. Our manufacturers are on break for Lunar New Year but we understand how important a big party is! We will be getting the digital files ready for when they return. Also, we will be working on getting our pledge manager set up and it should be ready to go in about two weeks, so keep an eye out for that!
The Tabletopia and Tabletop Simulator mods need to get an update (mainly adding the stretch goal tokens and new Bunny Names).
But before all of that... I think I'm going to get a little bit of rest! I was too excited to sleep last night! Haha :)
Holly and I cannot wait to get the game to your door so we can all party! Thank you so much!!
