Stretch Goal Unlocked
What an amazing first five days. The Jasper flew past the half million dollar mark. Thank you so much for your support and trust.
Wing Shelf Stretch Goal Unlocked
$500K means we've hit the first stretch goal! Wing shelves are unlocked. They will be an add-on you can choose in the pledge manager after the campaign.
Wing shelves are great for two things. Dungeon Masters and snacks. It gives you a flat surface at either end of your table. You sacrifice a little bit of playing area and get a little desk for a laptop, or a side table for some popcorn. They can also make the table feel a little more intimate when you are playing two player games.
They are very versatile so it is a little hard to explain exactly how they are useful. But they are the accessory that Duchess owners keep coming back to us and asking if they can get one (or get a second one).
Note: This is a picture of a wing shelf from one of our custom built tables. We don't have pictures of a wing shelf on a Jasper yet, but the idea is the same.
When you pledge for The Jasper, Kickstarter lists the estimated delivery date as September 2019. But there is also a comment in there that says some tables will deliver soon. This has caused some confusion for people who didn't see the shipping schedule portion of the campaign page.
Kickstarter made us pick one "delivery date" per pledge level. This makes sense if you are getting something printed or making a movie. For furniture, we will be shipping tables as we make them. We choose our date based on when we estimate the 2500th backer will get their table. We didn't want to mislead anyone.
You can see the full schedule above.
So far 606 tables have been purchased by backers. That means if you back right now, we estimate delivery of your table in March 2019 (not September).
If you have friends who are thinking about this campaign, make sure they understand this. Every Kickstarter has a burst of pledges at the end of the campaign. If they back now, they can ensure a spot in line in front of those people.
