Before I start writing about Ply Games plans for 2023, I would like to inform you about a few things that happened in 2022.
Limited versions of Exploration went to distribution channels in Italy and Poland. These are the last boxes available for purchase. (We sold out the English versions a long time ago, and the German ones during Spiel'22.)
At the end of 2022, our reviewers have prepared content for Exploration:

Plans and changes in 2023
1. Six Sided Summoner Campaign.
Around May 2023, I would like to invite you on a journey to a fairy-tale land, where you will be able to play the roles of the titular Summoners in a game that I define as an engine builder RPG. What does that actually mean? You'll find out soon as we discover more about our new project. In the meantime, I invite you to read Game Design Document.
Regarding the campaign itself, I would like it to bring you a lot of entertainment during its duration, and not just to collect funds for printing a new game. How will we achieve it? You will also find out soon.
2. Exploration reprint and distribution
For Exploration owners, this is not the most important activity, although for Ply Games, it is necessary to continue to develop and bring new games to your tables. The plan is simple. During Spiel'22 and other last year's events, we conducted various types of talks (some of them have already had an effect). Of course, if the Exploration reprint comes to fruition, the game will be prepared in a retail version, without most of the Kickstarter add-ons, in particular without maps expanding the map.
3. Development of the next game
If the Six SIded Summoner campaign is successful, the work on it (preparing the final files for printing, correcting the instructions, etc.) should end in Q3 2023 at the latest. Then we plan to start development work on the next title.
We intend to send our subscribers a monthly, minimally invasive newsletter, which will be a summary of all Ply Games activities in a given month. In the next post on our website, we will share the first sample newsletter.
Subscribe to us for upcoming contests and events - Six Sided Summoner Open Tests are starting soon!
Just like you, I am also a fan of the board game world, which is why I run a series on instagram about the presentation of new games that I encountered at the Spiel fair. If you are looking for new titles, I invite you to browse our instagram.
Everything we do is done with you in mind. Therefore, I would like to provide you with some way to communicate with us. We have several options:
We are currently the admin of a group that has worked out quite well in preparation for the release of Exploration.One option is to simply rename it to the "Ply Games" group, where we will be able to communicate.

The most important way of communication, which we confirmed last year during the events in which we participated.This year, we have not yet set a calendar of events where we will appear.This is strongly correlated with the progress in the development of Six Sided Summoner.My dream this year is to organize open tests, during which we will have the opportunity to play together!
