Ask FunSockets anything!

Trisha has agreed to answer the community's questions regarding the new FunSockets Goko Dominion.  She'll answer them next week: Wednesday, August 22.  If there is sufficient interest, we might even set up a Google Hangout.

So submit your questions below!  We'd love it if you make sure you don't post a duplicate question, so please read through what others have also asked.

Hmm, seems like by then we should be able to answer most of them ourselves, right??

Would it be possible to get a relative timetable of when the expansions will be released on Goko?

Will there be any deal for getting price-cuts by buying physical copies of existing/future expansions?

You are making a game where your already existing playerbase (I might be wrong, but I think this is true) know the game better than you do. How does that feel? Is it a problem?

What kind of achievements will there be?

Can you tell us more about this campaign mode?

(I guess this will be answered when game is released, though?)

Edit: Any possibility of a fast, lightweight mod of play for player that do not want fancy graphics?

What is your long term timeline for server upkeep?
Will you release the source / hosting software if/when you decide to shut down the game?

That is a great question. At the very least, I think in pro-mode there should be a way to turn off graphics.

And, I thought of another question: How will we be able to get the Base Cards with new art? Will we have to pay for it? Unlock it? What about those of us who own the physical copy and have that weird card that came with it? Also, when will Base Card art be available?

Is there any timeline for a phone edition?   Seems like it's tablet-only for now.  If there is one, will there be a version that can be played against a bot on the subway (no connectivity)?

Do you have any plans for a maniacal laughter sound effect when a Hermit turns into a Madman?

Will there be a package deal to purchase all of the current and coming expansions in one go?

I'd rather do this - especially if it's cheaper than individual purchases - and be done with it.

So I have to ask since this goes live on the 16th with 1/3 dark ages the redeem cards are now relevant.

1) We know that dark ages / Guilds / base cards have these redeem cards.

2) We know that 1/3 of dark ages launches with this

3) I personally intend to buy this and dark ages.

So I guess I'm asking what do these cards entitle me to, I won't be able to get dark ages where I live until a reasonable amount of time has passed since release (takes a while to get up here to Canada). And I want to buy all the sets available as they become available on this, so what does the dark ages card entitle me to

a) 1/3 of dark ages for free?
b) ALL of dark ages for free?
c) something else?

and if it's b, what will happen should I have already purchased 1/3 of dark ages?

You've managed to snag perhaps THE golden IP of the decade, but a lot of companies seem to want to roll their own solutions (e.g. DoW) or produce for specific platforms (mostly iOS). Do you have other licenses in the pipeline? Are any with companies other than RGG?

...and apparently has a Wikipedia page, which among other things mentions he was a Putnam Fellow in 1993. (Background: means top 5 in a very difficult North America-wide undergraduate math contest.)

Wasn't there a rumor about them having Citadels too?  I'd imagine they probably have a few RGG titles in the pipeline.

I've played maybe three games of it? I've played more games of San Juan. And I've made a bunch of games that fall into that general family - you have cards in hand with rules, build up a tableau over half an hour, play simultaneously.

Wei-Hwa himself made a dice version, Roll for the Galaxy. I played it once; it was good. RGG is making it but there is no release date for it yet; could be a ways off.

Okay, another question, will we ever have the option of turning off animations? I sure hope the answer is yes to this.

Any plans of allowing players to tweak how the cards are laid out on screen?  Right now the kingdom cards go from left-to-right and bottom-to-top in ascending price order.  IRL, I play left-to-right and top-to-bottom so the $2s are in the top left and the $6s are in the bottom right.

Obviously something minor but it throws me for a loop every time I play on Goko.
