    Can this game be played solo with a single player?
    BGG has this game from 1-4 players?

  2. Simon says:

    Hello !
    I heard that a little expansion was sold in Essen ? I miss that !!!
    This will be available soon on retail ?

    Thank !


  3. Whisper says:

    I heard about the Desperation expansion and I would like to buy it. Is there any way to buy it directly from you ? Do you have any retailer partners ?

    • Pleasant Company Games says:

      We will be making all our mini-expansions available on our new web store on this site, in early 2018.

  4. Kay says:

    Where can I obtain Snowblind in Cape Town / South Africa? Cost?

  5. Steve says:

    So rad to see stuff like this coming out of SA! Nice one guys 🙂

    • rob_vz says:

      Thanks for the shout out, Steve.

      It certainly is a barren landscape for other hobby game publishers, down here at the tip of Africa!

  6. Eddie M. says:

    Perfekt! I’ll be there! Thanks!

  7. Eddie M. says:

    When is the KS campaign gonna start? I can’t wait 🙂

  8. Nic says:

    Was lucky enough to play test this with the creator last week, it really is exceptionally promising.

    Is there a live Kickstarter campaign?

    • Pleasant Company Games says:

      Was great playing the game with you, Nic.

      Your tragic end in the game was inspiring and your reaction, more so!

    Hello Rob,

    Please (read: begging) consider including a SOLO / CO-OP variant. The game design and graphics are just AWEsome! I can’t wait to see this in January ’16.


    • Pleasant Company Games says:

      We are planning on solo rules as a stretch goal in the upcoming KS campaign.

  10. Andy says:

    Artwork looks awesome! Can’t wait for the kickstarter. I hope you guys offer ATT with the expansion as well during the snowblind campaign. I forgot to pledge during the expansion of ATT.

    • Pleasant Company Games says:

      This was considered, but we would prefer to support our retailers who have copies of ATT, now that the KS is over. Ask your local game store or look for it online!

  11. Derek says:

    Please keep us all here posted!

  12. Mark Deibert says:

    Definitely really really most assuredly will back this on KS! Please email me early and often when it’s ready to launch.

    Mark 🙂

    • Pleasant Company Games says:

      We want forget you this time, Mark.
      Expect a newsletter on Tuesday morning, with early access to see the KS page before others!

  13. John says:

    This game looks awesome. What’s the latest on a Kickstarter csmpaign?

  14. Darin Moore says:

    Most definitely interested and will be awaiting the Kickstarter for it! Love ATT, and looking forward to Snowblind! Love the Art…

  15. Sean says:

    Seriously, the artwork and coloring on this one is awesome; I hope it stays close to what is shown above!

  16. Sean says:

    Yeah, I don’t want to miss this KS (or Grim Heroes)!

  17. Robert Myers says:

    Count me in!

  18. Hans says:

    Definitely be interested in! Picked up ATT at Essen 2014 and absolutely adored the game!

  19. k barrett says:

    After picking up Ancient Terrible Things and loving it I am very interested in what else you have to offer.

  20. Wynand CJ Hart says:

    I would love to get involved with the kickstarter for this so please let me know if you create the kickstarter. Very impressed with your first game 🙂

  21. John says:

    Each game in the Pleasant Company Games catalog looks incredible.
    This one excites me more than Grim Heroes, but I will be purchasing both.
    Here’s hoping more information about Snowblind will be released to keep us fans happy until late 2015!

    • Justin Davis says:

      I am definitely interested in this game. Gonna be on kickstarter?

      • Pleasant Company Games says:

        Thank you for the support and interest, Justin.

        For a small indie developer like us, Kickstarter is essential. And is a good way to gauge interest, as well as be able to beef up the base game.

    • Reduan says:

      Absolutely interested. Gorgeous atmosphere, artwork and again a FUN game to play 🙂
