Splinterlands Just Made My Christmas!

As some of you may know, Splinterlands started a Kickstarter campaign for their new expansion set:

Splinterlands Unlimited

.
Within 24 hours, the expansion was funded, and has more than doubled what they were asking for since. That's incredible!

There are still 27 days or so to invest for some cool incentives: Booster packs, stickers, T-Shirts, a 200 page Splinterlands Encyclopedia (@mattclarke can finally know the origins of his precious Flesh Golems!). Physical Cards, Foiled Physical Cards, Transferable titles, the opportunity to buy into becoming part of the lore of the game itself, promo codes with affiliate links to earn residual income for life, and an in-game status indicator showing how early you got into the game.

All really cool stuff!

But, what do I personally really really want to get my hands on?
What, would really make my Christmas?

A SET OF THESE:

Don't get me wrong here, I love all of the merchandise and the 200 page encyclopedia would be incredible. And the idea of becoming a powerful Summoner in the game itself permanently? Too cool...

But these bad boys have definitely caught my eye. The only way to get them is through one of the tiers of the Kickstarter campaign right now, but seeing as though they are reaching their funding goals they might even print a whole heap of them and sell them separately.

Fingers crossed.

See you in the Splinterlands...

OMG!!! i JSUT GOT MY GIFTS! i WAS FEELING PRETTY DOWN TOO. i SUCK HAAA. nO BEEN HAVING A ROUGHT DAY. i WONT BE ABLE TO DO MUCH BUT PLAY SPLINTERLANDS MUCH LONGER ITS SO BAD TO MOVE. SEE i RECORD VIDEOS SOMETIMES WEEKS AHEAD OF TIME SO... tHANKS FOR MAKING ME FEEL LIKE A KID EXCITED FOR SOMETHING!! i MEAN i THINK IT WAS YOU THAT SENT THEM!

No problem. The cards are only level 1 cards. The more you get of an individual card, you can combine them to allow them to go up levels. At certain levels special abilities like “flying” will unlock. Some cards don’t have special abilities but are just good fighters. Furious Chicken has zero mana cost, low heath and low damage but can pay an extra 10% DEC when you win games. DEC can be bought and sold in Steem-Engine. Do you use Steem-Engine? It’s cool for trading tokens / coins.

Another cool game that I hope takes off is Steem Knights.

Exciting times. Mad when the 10K option was filled, like an hour after launch. Good deal, too.

You can see the pledges updating in real time. Quite interesting.

those could be really collectors..do you know how many have been printed?

None yet. What they are doing is a Kickstarter campaign and those that pledge the US$200 will get a set among the other gifts. As they keep going they will unlock more cards to be printed. I can’t afford to pledge that amount and I am not interested in the other firsts just the card set. I’d even sell off the booster packs. I think they don’t finalise the Kickstarter until November 8th, but I still have to do my taxes and we’ll see what happens.

No worries, interesting...but pricey!

The other aspect of physical cards is that you can show people how to play the game without needing an internet connection.

This price was set when they didn't know how long it would take to be funded.
Hopefully at some point someone will want to sell them as a set separately from the rest of the gear.
I mean, stickers are cool for kids and I don't see myself wearing a Peaceful Giant T-shirt.
