We did it.
Our generous Metagame supporters,
Local No. 12 wants to offer a heartfelt thanks to each of you for helping realize our project. Some of you are players from the Game Developers Conference that wanted your own deck of cards. Others are educators that plan to use the Metagame in your classrooms and at other events. Still others were just curious to see what this Metagame thing was all about.
But all of you are rockstars in helping us far exceed our goal of raising $10,000 for a print run of the game - the final total was more than $20,000! Thank you thank you thank you!
In earlier updates, we have outlined how we are going to use the funds and when we are getting you decks. You can read these posts by clicking the UPDATES tab on our Kickstarter page, but here's the summary: all funds will be used towards the creation and distribution of Metagame cards. A portion of the funds will be used for a visual revamping of the game. The time required for this design process, plus printing and shipping, means that you will receive your decks this summer - possibly as late as July, but hopefully sooner.
We are also currently playtesting a number of Metagame variants - for groups as small as 3 or 4 players, through party-sized groups - which will help you make the most of your decks. By the time you do get your cards we will have an expanded Metagame website - now located at the fabulous URL http://metaga.me/ (which was donated by one of you). The site will be a hub for our community of players to discuss game rules, trade experiences, and suggest cards ideas for future editions of the game. And stay tuned for more Metagame news - we have had some interest in larger Metagame projects we hope to announce soon.
In the meantime, expect to hear from us in the next few days as we gather information about your shipping address and (depending on your level of funding) your t-shirt size. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us through the Kickstarter site or through email@example.com.
Finally, thanks again! You folks are truly awesome.
