      Hi Holger!

      What’s the link to the Kickstarter for Climbers XL? Is it available in US?

      We’d love to get an XL copy for our Board Game Cafe here.

    Sorry for longtermed not answering – I am good in inventing games but horrible in social media.
    Well, there will be no XL-version. I made last summer a XXXL-version with 20 cm blocks for outdoors. Man, thats stunning!
    And I made some brains about the weak 2 players-rules. Check these rules out:
    > Don´t built a starting tower – just place the
    core-Blocks, then take your choice out of the
    > Use the whole item-stock! Everybody take a
    second blocker-disc from the stock and play
    with 2 of them. You may use both in one round
    > Everybody starts with 2 small and 2 large
    > When in one round nobody climbs, each player
    pay as punishment an item of his choice. When
    there´s no item left, the game ends immediadely

    And theres a possibility to play with 6, 8 or 10 players. You only need a 2nd copy of the game. It´s played with teams oft 2.
    heck this out: >> Goal: The highest scoring team wins. 1 step
    = 1 point. The points of both Climbers are
    added – the highest score makes it.

    > Build a block around the 4 standing coreblocks
    (nearly 2x the start-block as on the pic
    > Form teams of 2 and sit down in this
    sequence: 1-2-3-4-5-1-2-3-4-5
    > Everybody gets his ladders and blocker-disc
    First goal:
    > Meet up with your partner on the same block.
    > From this point on, both players can use all
    ladders, blocker-discs and Climbers as they
    Special rule for blocker disc:
    > When a player place a blocker-disc, his
    partner can deceide to remove it or wait until
    the entire round.

    And last but not least: There will be expansion sets. Clay will make them. But doesn´t know, when.

    If you have questions, better contact me this way:

    Best regards, Holger
