That’s right it is Funtails Friday, our weekly Update on what has been tickling our feet for the last week!

Caral-Kickstarter Update 12

Caral, the New Funtails game by Klaus-Jürgen Wrede (Carcassonne) has been on its Kickstarter Journey since September 2021 and is almost ready for its Historic release!

“Act NOW!”

The Latest Update by Funtails Editor Maikel Cheney comes as the Gamefound pledge manager has been open for a while, so if you have not, the time to complete your pledge has come. But don’t worry if you missed the original campaign, You can still secure your copy while the Pledge manager is open (see options below the update)!

The 12th Update:

With the last update, we invited you into our pledge manager and most of you completed their pledges as desired. If you did, we thank you wholeheartedly and send you our fluffiest alpaca hugs! 🤗

Some backers have not completed their pledge yet

On the other hand, 29 backers didn’t log into the pledge manager yet and 116 backers have more than 1€ of unused credit remaining, which means that they haven’t completed their pledge yet.

So if you haven’t completed your pledge yet, you will soon experience the wrath of the architect! Maybe we will even send our giant anaconda your way… 🐍

All jokes aside, by not completing your pledge right now you are hurting yourself as you will not get your rewards when everybody else does. You are also hurting us because we will need to pay service personnel to individually sort out your case at a later point. We might need to charge you a service fee and shipping costs might have gone up in the meantime as well. So, please, complete your pledge and make life easier for everyone instead.

Thank you! ❤️

Head to Gamefound now and complete your Caral pledge! To do this, find the “Complete your CARAL order” Email we sent you on June 9 in your inbox and click on the “Go to pledge manager” button.

If you are having problems with the pledge manager, then please contact our service (via service@funtails.de 📧).

Mass production is currently running at full speed. All plastic injection pieces are expected to be completed by August 23 and the paper components by August 28. After this, our partner will need some time for the final assembly, packaging, and safety tests. If everything goes well, we expect to get everything on a boat by the end of September! 🚢

Goodbye for now,
