$2,515,255!


Hi HEXers. It seems fitting that I'm typing this from inside the Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, the site of Cryptozoic's 2013 World of Warcraft Trading Card Game North American Continental Championship. Yeah, that's a mouthful. With $237,000 in PayPal donations-- growing every day from our Slacker Backer pledges-- we're over 2.5 million dollars for HEX!

That means we're going to HEX Con! Just a few weeks ago, this was just a dream, so we don't have any specifics yet aside from this: all backers, from Squire to Producer, will receive all digital items from the convention whether or not they attend as thanks for believing in HEX and making this campaign such a success. This also means that you King backers and above will be getting that early Friday sneak peek!

Vennen race art update coming next week.

I'd be more interested in an Ardent shirt if it didn't look like someone stabbed a winged football.

The Underworld shirt looks great, though.

They appear not to have factored in pledges that didn't go through. That's kind of them :)

I am curious if backers will get copies of digital items solely from the first convention, or from all conventions going forward.

The free entry to the Con for backers is for only this con; this is the justification for giving all backers the items this go. I imagine the exclusive items will be limited in the future.

Btw, anyone have a clue what that "Early Friday Sneak Peek" means for Kings and above?

Hope that the early friday will also get a special digital item, a merc would be nice :)

The Con is Sat/Sun but King and up can check it out Friday.

Pretty sure it's been stated several times that any and all digital items given out at all the HEXcons will be given to all KS backers as well.

It's just for the Hexcon we funded at KS and not all consecutive hexcons

The free access to the 1st HEXcon is a reward for the kickstarters. Therefore, they're giving any digital items from the "goody bag" to everyone who would've got a free entry based on their kickstarter contribution.

If they do future HEXcons, we will not get free entry. We will not get digital items free.

Whether it was for the first con or all of them is not clearly stated. The official statement is in update #30

May not. Perhaps there will be some items, but not all available free. Perhaps they will continue a free Friday sneak peek for king + backers at future cons. They have in no way committed to, but they have also not stated they would not. Who knows what plans they may have for future cons.

We beat it by $15K! Guess I didn't need the extra Primal at the end to push us over ;)

I hope this is happening with enough time for people to save up for the trip. Some of us are not rich.

I've heard rumors of Summer 2014? (Can anyone verify?) Regardless, no way it's happening this year - there's already an event happening for backers Dragon Lord & above, plus all the devs will be entirely focused on getting Hex ready for launch (hopefully) at the end of this year.

As I've posted previously, even though I can't see making it to the event, I'm super pumped that we hit the last stretch goal. I think the lead up publicity alone will help increase the player base significantly.

Hooray us!

I hope we find out soon when the date will be so that we can start getting reservations and other things ready.

Yeap i think a year's ahead notice will be required for ppl to properly plan the trip to vegas; book plane tickets, hotels, arrange a leave from work etc. Which makes me think that hexcon might not happen summer 2014 like most ppl are speculating.

I'm guessing it will happen during WoWTCG's NACC (that are ongoing)
