Here are a few updates!
The Minimum KS Goal Went From 55k to 38.5k – Lots of discussion regarding the 55k goal caused me to rethink my financials. Break-even now takes subsequent sales of excess inventory in consideration. We’re also taking fixed costs out because those are lost either way, and if I have to lose 10,000 – I’d rather also share the game with everyone.
UK, US and Canada Free Shipping – I’m so happy we could get this to work. The game itself is $45, but we have to include shipping of $10, so the core game backer level will be $55. International shipping to many locations is still high, but by ordering in quantities of four, backers will only pay the additional shipping modifier once. So, at least it is possible to get the game at a reasonable price.
Reviews Are Coming In! – Our first two reviews are in, and we got some very thoughtful feedback. Aiming for them to be posted before the start of the campaign.
Deus Ex Machina Rule Book Expansion in Progress! – We are adding two sections to the end of the rule book. The Strategy Guide will offer tips, like which ships are most powerful against the different planets, and review some rule examples to help you grock it quickly. Deus Ex Machina is an advanced rules variant that puts “ghost ship abilities” back in the game.
We Made Our Minimum on Thunderclap! – Our current reach is 37,981 – Phenomenal! We could still use some buffer – http://thndr.it/1jUfZFY Thank you SO MUCH for your help with the Thunderclap experiment, friends!
