Stretch goal and pledge level updates

Posted by Queen Games (Creator)

Greetings Alhambra fans.

There are only five days left in the campaign! Although progress has slowed down the last week, we are still very happy with the response so far. Now, for a few announcements.

First, we are happy to announce that we have met the 2003 backer stretch goal, which means all mega boxes will receive the embroidered bag!

Now for an exciting announcement about stretch goals. If you have been following the comment thread, you will have seen our rationale behind stretch goals being calculated based on number of backers and not money raised: we want to value all of our customers equally, not just cater to those who are spending more money than others. However, the distribution of backers has been more towards the MegaBox than we expected. This means that it will be viable to add the Lion fountains to the games with fewer backers than we expected. Therefore, we are happy to announce that we are lowing the stretch goal for the Fountains to 2100 backers (from 2500). At that number (less than 100 away), the Lion Fountains will be added to all pledge levels that receive stretch goals.

We know that the fountains have been greatly anticipated, so we are glad that we can make this change to help ensure that Alhambra gets the full treatment it deserves for its 15th anniversary. Please share the campaign and help hit 2100 backers as soon as we can. We will update the campaign graphic for the revised stretch goals as soon as possible.

Finally, we are going to be adding a pledge level specifically for brick and mortar retailers. We want to support these stores as best we can and this new pledge level will be specifically for local stores anywhere in the world who want to carry these products. There will be a small pledge amount, and then after the campaign, we will work with the store to create a custom order. This is something we are trying out and are hopeful it works out, so that we can include it in our campaigns going forward. If you have a favorite local game store, we'd love it if you mention the opportunity to them.

Also, in addition to the retailer pledge levels, we will be adding a number of bundles designed for those in a game group who want to save on shipping by purchasing a number of games as a unit.

That's it for now. Thanks everyone for your involvement.

      @Jesse Pudewell We had to limit it for a bit to work out some complications that came up, but it is active again.

      @David N. Why is it a mistake for us to allow local retailers to have access to it? There is no guarantee you will have a store nearby that orders them, and the price may be higher. Of course, if someone decides not to back the campaign to give business to a local store who backed the campaign, we are happy to make the sacrifice to support the store.

      The local retail pledge is the reason for loosing pledges. Why should we pledge a KS exclusive Mega-Box, when a retailer can order them too? That s a big mistake.

      I have a few local game stores I can mention this to.

      It looks like you've accidentally limited your retailer level to only one pledge. I'm sure there's more than one retail establishment that would want to get in on it.

      Very classy. TY, Queen Games!

      As a Gold Level Backer I would also like to have the bag. But I do not want to have the game twice. And I do not want to put my old one to the bin. Please make the bag possible for me. Thank you.
