When we geared up to launch Red Thread of Fate, we had no idea that world events would overtake our quirky board game about fate, poetry, and overcoming the challenges that prevent true love.
But in the last few days - and especially the last 24 hours or so - we know that (like us) many of you are right now instead focusing on quarantine or self-isolation, school and work closures, travel cancellations, border restrictions, shortages of supplies, and anxiety for loved ones. We've realised now is not the time to continue to ask you to support the launch of our game, when we ourselves can't give it the attention it deserves.
Soon we will be ready for fun and romance again, ready to play Japanese spirits weaving a tale with the help of poetry and dice to reunite two lost lovers. But now is not that time. So we have canceled our Red Thread of Fate Kickstarter today and will relaunch it later at a more appropriate time.
We offer our grateful thanks to everyone who has backed the campaign so far. You will be the first to know when we launch again!
We wish everyone all the best until the Stars are Right again.
