All the words and grammar principles in the sentences in this commercial are available in the Worldwide Alpha Release except for the Past Tense conjugation. That will be available in the Conjugation Expansion Pack. Have a nice day.
These work with the Worldwide Alpha Edition, which is the latest as of 4/1/13. If you’re reading this in May 2013 or later, you should check the News section of our site (http://japanesethegame.com/category/news/) for a newer edition.
This PDF is also included as a free download in our eStore, so everyone who buys a deck gets one!
I’d like your feedback below, or you can PM or comment on our Facebook.
Japanese: The Game has had a pleasant development this week. Instruction booklets are available from the publisher that take up less space and look cooler than a folded piece of paper!
The’re 4, 8, 12, 16, or 20 pages long, and they’ll be inside every Core Deck and any Expansion in which they may be necessary. The Conjugation expansion pack will definitely need one, as may the People expansion. You’re going to need to know whom to call “san”!
The Worldwide Alpha Release deck hasn’t arrived yet at headquarters, but as soon as it does, you’ll get a post with pics and an announcement. The booklets won’t be available in booklet form for a little while, but when they come out, I’ll send one to each Test Group member and everyone else can receive a PDF as a free download from this site.
The deck for the Worldwide Alpha Release has been altered, edited, balanced, and sent to the publisher. The original release date was scheduled for April 30th, but all the work is done early. Why wait?
As soon as the deck reaches home base (it’s in the mail now) the cards will be photographed for use in the Rules Sheet, which will be available for download so you don’t have to buy it. Decks with and without the rules sheet will be available for purchase throughout the Alpha phase, as will the downloadable PDF Rules Sheet.
The online store will be on the Home Page of this website as soon as the publisher’s supply chain is sufficiently established. Then Amazon and other sales channels will flesh out the exposure before and during the Beta.
The newest edition of Japanese: The Game is the Limited Alpha Release, which is only available to Game Tester volunteers. (To volunteer, let us know in the comment box below or on Facebook.) These volunteers are eligible to purchase the edition before anyone else and receive special advantages, like free cards and input into development.
The eStore that hosts the game has posted it and will send you a deck, printed on demand, for about $13 (or more if you want faster shipping than 5-10 days). If you volunteer as a game tester, you will receive the link to our shop and access to the “Japanese: The Game: The Test Group” group on Facebook.
The flavor of progress is ambrosiac, and we’d love to share it with you! Photos of the new edition coming soon!!
