GKR was a terrific opportunity to unleash our creative capacity on a project of our own. Bringing the game to Kickstarter was a great way to connect with the huge and vibrant community of board game enthusiasts who love sharing the process of bringing a board game to life. We’ve enjoyed the concept design and world building around GKR – that’s all in our DNA – but our community have helped influence the board game itself. The subsequent success has been just incredible to watch and a credit to our creative team. I’m hugely proud of what the team have accomplished and excited for what lies ahead.
What a journey! We can’t thank the Kickstarter community enough for believing in us and choosing to invest in the project at this early stage. We never dreamed the game would take off the way it has. We’re totally over the moon and just want to thank everyone involved in creating the game and supporting it along the way. We can’t wait for it to arrive on all your doorsteps!
The 30-day Kickstarter may have come to an end, but the next phase is just beginning. Wētā Workshop’s Consumer Products team will now move ahead into the manufacture stage. Not only will backers receive an enormous game box packed full of extras exclusive to Kickstarter, they have also become a part of history: making Wētā Workshop’s first ever board game a reality. With delivery slated for December 2017, it’s now all systems go to bring it to life.
