Hello everyone and hope you are enjoying the game. Dwarven Smithy has been selling very well at conventions and on our website over the past 10 months. It's been a blast meeting our backers and we again thank you all for making the game such a hit! It is ranked at 7.8 after 185 Ratings on Board Game Geek.
Many people have asked and yes, an expansion is currently in the works! We'll test it this summer/fall with the expectation of an announcement late in the fall or beginning of 2020. We'll share photos and information of our progress on our Website and on Facebook.

NEW Coin Kickstarter
We expect to run out of Deluxe Edition games that include metal coins this summer. So, due to the overwhelming popularity of our metal coins, we've decided to run a Coin Kickstarter this June, while we are attending Origins Game Fair. We'd like to have your comments, suggestions, and thoughts on our outline below.
A simple campaign with no stretch goals and limited to 21 days, so we can get fulfillment completed before Christmas.
Goal - $8,000, need a minimum of 120 backers and will include free shipping to USA and Canada and a $10 discount to all other countries on all tiers.
Tier 1 - We forged a special 40mm x 2.5mm antique gold collector coin for the Kickstarter to included in all Tiers. One side has the Dwarven Smithy logo and the other side is a First Player token to be used in other games as well as a variant in the expansion (working out those details).
Tier 2 - Includes the Collector Coin, a black bag and 50 coins (Ten of each 1, 3, 5, 25, and 100 denominations ). Many of you already have the Deluxe Edition with 100 metal coins, so we wanted to add an option for backers to get a half set of 10 coins each.
Tier 3 - Includes the Collector Coin, a black bag and 100 coins with game denominations of (26) 22mm, (16) 24mm, (26) 26mm, (16) 28mm and (16) 30mm all x 2mm thick.
Tiers 4-5 will allow backers who don't already know about or own the game to get the metal coins, the game, and player mats. The retail game is discounted by $6 on Tier 4-5, while the four player mats are discounted by $6 on Tier 5.
- Tier 1 - $5 - A Collector Coin (40 mm x 2.5 mm thick)
- Tier 2 - $35 - A Collector Coin, 1 black bag and 50 Coins
- Tier 3 - $65 - A Collector Coin, 1 black bag and 100 coins
- Tier 4 - $99 - A Collector Coin, 1 black bag, 100 coins, 1 Retail game (limit 100-150 backers)
- Tier 5 - $163 - A Collector Coin, 1 black bag, 100 coins, 1 Retail game and 4 player mats (limit 50 backers )
As for the prices, shipping and coin prices have increased since Oct 2017. We've looked at other Kickstarters and priced the coins as low as possible to make our Kickstarter feasible. Also, we added a discount on the price of the retail game and mats just for the Kickstarter.
Please leave your comments, suggestions and what tier you may be interested in the comments below. We are still working out all the details so everything is subject to change as needed.
Thanks again for your support the game and us!
Mike and Craig
