We hit another stretch goal! This means we made our base goal AND FIVE stretch goals our first week on Kickstarter! THANK YOU!
We have unlocked a number of different bonus cards and expansions. For new folks and just to helpful - here is an overview of what they are and how to get them:
Bonus Dragon Watchers
We have unlocked all three bonus Dragon Watchers. These are included free with all games and ALSO in the foil sets and bio card sets.
Baby Dragons Expansion & Bonus
The baby dragons expansion is $10 to add on to any pledge. It includes ten new baby dragons AND an 11th bonus SIGNED foil of one of the baby dragons is now included free with the expansion.
Patreon Bonus Card
In addition to using kickstarter I also run a monthly Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/artlair). Patreon is a subscription crowd funding site that gives you early input on all my projects, new creatures every month, tutorials, videos and more. I fully understand that patreon is NOT for everyone (I started it because a lot of folks were asking to be more involved in the design of my projects and get videos etc). I wanted to reward any folks subscribed to my Patreon ALSO pledged to the kickstarter. So if you are pledged to the Patreon at any level (even $1 a month) during January and February and backed this kickstarter you will get this bonus equipment card with your rewards:
If you have any suggestions or questions about bonus cards or the project (or my art or patreon or anything!) feel free to contact me. I'm happy to help!
Sand Stalker & New Goals!

WOW! We are just coming up on the end of our first week on kickstarter and thanks to all of you we are 162% funded!
We have just unlocked our 4th stretch goal: The Sand Stalker!
This bonus Dragon Watcher will be included with all games, foil sets, and bio card sets! This means that we have unlocked all three bonus cards!
Our next goal ($7200) adds a bonus signed foil card to the Baby Dragons Expansion. AND I have just added three more goals after that which will unlock these alternative playmat designs:
If we reach these goals backers getting playmats with their rewards will get to choose from any unlocked designs (and you can add any of them onto a pledge too).
Thanks so very much for supporting the Dragon Watcher Game! Please share the project and let folks know about it! And, as always, I'm happy to answer any questions.
Baby Dragons unlocked!

I wasn't expecting a lot of activity this weekend since it is a holiday weekend for many folks (I'm about to go bake a lot of gingerbread!). But we did it! We passed our second stretch goal! The Baby Dragons Expansion is now unlocked!
This expansion adds ten new baby dragon cards to the game (2 earth, 2 air, 2 fire, 2 water, and 2 mystery). Many of you may recognize these as the baby versions of dragons already in the game and my books. I even made sure to include a baby Ink Gremlin as I know how much folks liked my ink dragons on past projects. Isn't he adorable?
This set of ten baby dragons can be added on to your pledge for $10. We also have a stretch goal that adds a hand signed foil of one of the baby dragons to the set at no extra cost to backers.
For folks who asked: there is NO repeat artwork on the card fronts so if we hit all our stretch goals the base game will be 108 cards with different pictures (and baby dragons brings it to 118 cards). And yes, we have plans for a larger expansion in fall of 2018 which will add in griffins, mermaids, phoenixes, and more dragons!
Also, for the backers who asked, here is a free banner image you can use if you share the project on social media (facebook, forums, blogs etc). Any shares are greatly appreciated!
I can't thank you enough for supporting the project and helping us reach the base goal and two stretch goals already! Wow! If you have any questions feel free to contact me. I know folks often have questions about the project, artwork, kickstarter, patreon etc and I'm happy to help!
Oracle of Scale Unlocked!

We hit another goal over the Christmas Holidays! Thanks everyone! The Oracle of Scales is now unlocked!
You will get a free copy of this Dragon Watcher with all your games, and she will be included with any bio cards and foil card sets too! Thanks everyone!
AND we only have $275 to go to unlock the third bonus Dragon Watcher! Wow!
I'm so excited and can't wait to get everything printing. My proofreading team is checking over all the cards in the next ten days to be sure there are no typos and then we'll be all set for printing at the end of January. Thank you so much for being a part of the project!
If you have comments or questions I am happy to help, just drop me a message. You can also contact me at Business@Artlair.com and find me on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/artlair.

I can't thank you enough for helping us pass the project goal in our first day! We will be printing the Dragon Watcher Game! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We are now almost to our first stretch goal which unlocks a bonus dragon watcher card called The Ice Seeker!
Bonus dragon watchers that we unlock will be included free in your games, in the foil card sets, AND in the bio card sets!
There are a lot of you who are returning backers from my past projects, but there are also a lot of new folks. So if you have any questions feel free to ask! I am always happy to answer your questions and get your input (many of my projects are inspired by backers and fans!).
I've had a few folks ask for more details on the playmat so here you go! They are 14 inches by 24 inches, 1/16 an inch, with a rubber non-slip backing, and amazing colors. AND they are fully WASHABLE! Here is a look at our mat and the level of detail in the artwork:
Playmats are included in all the Collectors Sets and you can also add them onto any pledge that includes a game ($20 each plus shipping of $2 US / $3 INT).
I'd love your feedback on the project so far. Also please let me know - would you like additional playmat designs? On past projects we have also done mousepads - would you like a mousepad too? Let me know!
