We just unlocked the Dragon Egg Playmat! Only more more mat to go now!
Backers getting playmats with their pledge tiers will have the option of choosing from any unlocked designs. You can also add playmats onto any pledge that includes a game for $20 each (Shipping is $2 US / $3 INT).
Thanks so very much for making the project a success! We'll be sending our surveys and getting everything printing ASAP after the project funding closes. If you have feedback or questions just drop me a message. I'm happy to help!

We just unlocked the Lava Dragon Playmat! Wow! THANK YOU!!
Backers getting playmats with their pledge tiers will have the option of choosing from any unlocked designs. You can also add playmats onto pledges if you'd like to customize your pledge.
A bunch of folks asked so to clarify: The playmats are optional accessories for use with any games (they are not required to play dragon watcher or specific to the game, you can use them with any game).
If you have feedback or questions just drop me a message. I'm happy to help!

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.

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!
