    Join the design team! Open to one (could be a couple!) Early access to and play of the planned sequel to Empires: Age of Discovery, called Empires: Galactic Rebellion. Glenn Drover, the designer of EAOD and EGR will host this event in Chicago. Eagle-Gryphon will fly this supporter from anywhere in the continental US to Chicago (Glenn lives nearby). A nice hotel accommodation will be provided and what will follow is a weekend of fun and games, hosted by Glenn. Includes the flight, hotel for two nights, dinner and beverages (one night) and of course game play. A character or a Rebel Faction in the game will be named after this supporter, who will also, of course, get credit for this in the Rules Manual. The dates and timing are flexible and to be worked out with this Backer and Glenn. Our Backer will receive two free copies of EAOD Deluxe and all Stretch Goals AND two free copies of Empires: Galactic Rebellion when it is released.
