3 new Curio Cards!
Yesterday 3 more Curio Cards were added to your decks: now they are 6 new special Curio unlocked from stretch goals, making the gameplay more varied!
The curio represent the items and ancient artifacts that the Seekers find and employ during their expedition. Relics from ancient times before the cataclysm!
Now another amazing Stretch Goal, a new Seeker miniature and related card among us! Below a little in depth analysis of her interesting background! We are still finalizing the design, but here she is!
She’s a convicted criminal that escaped from the city years ago, having a hefty bounty on her head she would be arrested on the spot if she ever set foot in the City again. To survive the wilderness and harshness of the outside regions, she built a set of armor with thermal capabilities, to keep her warm and protected. Being unrecognizable in the armor, she was able to join a Seeker’s convoy and managed to enter the Organization undercover. She did not reveal her identity until she proved her value to the Organization leaders, who then decided to protect her due to her incredible survival and adaptation abilities on the outside. She now lives in Organization Headquarters outside the walls and outside the City jurisdiction.
Next stretch goal is the print of the Icaion logo (or maybe you guys can come up with some other interesting ideas?) in the back of the Game board, leet's gooo, guys!!
The painted Creature!
Lastly, not sure everyone saw them, but we have some photos of the miniatures painted by Gabriele, our marketing manager here at Tabula! Below one example of our highly detailed miniature: The Creature!
Don't you think too that our female Seekers are badasses? ;)
A big thank you: it's raining Stretch Goals!!

Your feedback matters!
We would like to take a moment to express our appreciation towards each and everyone of you! You are so active we cannot always keep up with all of you. Yet nonetheless be aware that, even if we did not reply to your specific comment, we surely have read it and taken it into account!
In fact, we have received tons of requests to add the three Monster miniatures as an add-on to incorporate it in the Mysthea Essential Edition. Since there were so many of you who asked about it, we decided to take it into consideration. We will contact our factory and other partners to understand all the details necessary to create this add-on. We will be back at you all as soon as we have news about this matter!
Difference between the two versions of Mysthea
We took note of all your questions regarding the difference between Mysthea Crystal Edition and Mysthea Essential Edition and we would like to enhance the fact that we are sorry about how most of you feel about these differences.
We want to rewardall the people who have been there since the beginning of this journey which is the creation of what today we call the Mysthea Universe. Those people supported us and were right there when we launched Mysthea. For this reason the Mysthea Crystal Edition was a unique first print run that can't be replicated in the same way, but we created the Mysthea Essential Edition because we want everyone to be able to enjoy this great game that is Mysthea.
Do not worry, though, other than the difference in the number of Monster miniatures and their related cards, all other differences are completely cosmetic and the playability in Mysthea Essential Edition won't be affected, it will be the exact same experience.
We understand your concerns, but on the other side we have to take into account backers that could feel betrayed if we were to offer exactly the same product that they helped create a year ago. Please keep also in mind that is our intention to keep offering a reward system, and backers that will pledge in Icaion, will be entitled to unique rewards in our next projects as well as having a unique version of Icaion.
10 Reference Cards
Heading back into Icaion, tonight you wrecked a lot of Stretch Goals, the first one being these useful 10 Aid Cards! Those cards that won't leave your side during the gameplays and they will help you to better remember each action required!
We now have another great Wonder Miniature and Card: the Parasite Colony, enjoy!!
Double Layered Division Boards
A different type of Stretch Goal now, with this one you will get Player Board slots with Dual Layers. This way all your machines and the Qoam you gathered will be firmly held in place during the gameplay, with everything fitting neatly in its slot.
