Survey Update #2

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Okay, I am very sorry to have to do this again, but there were a number of mistakes I made during this survey process, and clearing them up is going to have to be an iterative process.

Really, I'm sorry for needing to clutter up your inbox.

Important point #1:

If you just pledged for a base pledge level (i.e. $20, $64 or $79 - plus shipping) to receive a single item, there's really no way you can screw up your survey as long as you get your address right. You can answer NA to all the questions and you will be perfectly fine. There is no need to worry - you will get exactly what you pledged for.

It is only if you want additional items above your base pledge that I need the numbers on exactly what you want.

Important point #2:

Again, I'd like to apologize for the "$64" typo in the third question of the $79 level survey. It should read "$79." It was a huge, terrible mistake that confused a lot of people. If I could change one thing, it would definitely be that, but unfortunately I can't. Again, though, just look at important point #1. If all you want is the miniature version of the game, that is definitely what you'll be getting.

Important point #3:

Don't fret too much about the country code question. Seriously. This was an ill-conceived way to get you to make sure that you paid the shipping you needed to pay for. I copied and pasted it, more-or-less, from my a survey for my first project, back when Kickstarter didn't allow you to automatically calculate shipping costs. 99.9% of you don't need to worry about this, though, because unless you're ordering more than 5 game boxes or moved to a different country since the Kickstarter happened, you've already paid the correct shipping amount.

For the record, I was asking for the two-letter abbreviation for your country, but I won't be using this response to sort the surveys in any way, so it's really not a big deal if you answered it some other way.

If you guys can think of any other major issues that still need clearing up, let me know and hopefully I'll be able to add them before the editing window on this post closes.

      Dustin, Monika, it's okay to wait a bit. As long as you fill it out within a couple weeks, you'll be fine.

      Isaac help!
      I had very rough week and I had no time to fill the survey. And now is the Fridays night and I am frankly speaking a bit drunk. I ordered the Gloomhaven also for my friends, so I really want fill survey correctly. Can I do it tomorrow?

      When is the hard cutoff on this? (I'm awaiting a payday)

      I was one of those $1 backers and I haven't actually received a survey. Is this to be expected (and should I pay via Paypal in expectation of receiving one), or should I be concerned?

      I love this project, but boy was that the most confusing KS survey I've ever filled out.

      Looks good, Ian! (And I love your skeleton dedication.)

      I think I've got my survey done properly for both standee and mini versions--let me know if you think I screwed it up, though.

      You know what ... even the way you deal with mistakes makes me more excited for the game ...

      Steve, look at the "Living Bones Reward" section on the main page.

      Sorry, what is this question about again?

      "Would you like me to slay a skeleton mightily in your name, and if so, to whom would you like me to dedicate the kill? (Nothing vulgar)"

    11. Mist_Wave on

      Nvm... Kickstarter app is not helpfull xD I had to go on the website directly! So everything good :P

      Yeah, don't loose any sleep over it, and thanks for being on top of... well, everything really. This KS so far ranks up there with the best and regardless of what BGG folks said, Gloomhaven is my most anticipated game of 2016 (or, of it so happens, 2017).

      Thanks for the clarifications Isaac!

      @ Isaac - it happens mate don't stress it too much. Better to have some confusion now when a lot of time left before delivery than at actual delivery time when we can actually smell Gloomhaven in the air and have no rationale to deal with your updates haha
      Seriously thanks for your updates and handling the whole situation upfront and clearing confusion. It continues the message of this being a well run campaign.

      Thanks for the clarification! :)
