Surveys and Edits: Post-Kickstarter week 26

Posted by Isaac Childres (Creator)

Greetings, residents of Gloomhaven!

Short update this week. I mainly wanted to tell you that if haven't filled out your survey yet, you might want to go ahead and do that soon. I'd like to start compiling data for manufacturing and fulfillment purposes, so I'm going to need to know if you are ordering extra copies of the game. And if you are having trouble understanding the survey, read these two updates.

Oh, and speaking of ordering extra copies, I feel I need to make one thing totally clear:

I don't have your credit card information.

So people seem to be operating under the mistaken assumption that if they just ask for extra copies on the survey, that I will somehow be able to charge them and ship them the games. I will only ship you what you actively paid for, so if you wanted extra copies of the game, you need to send me the money through Paypal ( or you won't get them.

In addition, I have sent a confirmation notice through Kickstarter to everyone I have received Paypal money from. So if you sent me money and I have not acknowledged it, send me a message and we'll figure it out.

All right, enough of that business. What has been going on this week?

Well, Josh has been a beast these last couple weeks, making stickers for scenario locations and global achievements, as well as designing the punch boards, which include the map tiles, overlay tiles, monster standees, character mats and all the various bits and tokens. We are looking very good on that front!

I've been tackling the little things, editing event cards and writing some that got skipped over, and making one more pass at refining and balancing the character ability cards.

I'm planning on making all of the ability cards available for everyone to look over next week, just to make sure there aren't any glaring issues that haven't been addressed. Obviously looking over the ability cards gets into major spoiler territory, but I know that's not an issue for some of you.

So stay tuned next week for that! All I have for you now is a heartfelt thanks for all of your continued support and encouragement.

We'll get this game conquered yet!

      I just wanted to say I'm loving the random item pics in these updates. No idea what that compassish thing is going to do, but I wanna know (and will find out eventually). Thanks!

      I filled out the Surrey a couple of weeks ago without adding any extra. I have now changed my mind though and would like to ad an extra pledge with standees (already paid for a pledge with minis + shipping to Europe/Sweden). Is this possible? and what info do you want (through PM/paypal) when I send the money through paypal.

      Sorry for the inconvienience.

      Yes, as Aron said. I'm only talking about additional Paypal payments - not the original Kickstarter payment.

      @Dominic - A few minutes after the KS ended you should have been charged for whatever you had pledged for at that point. You should be able to check your account info and verify what level and how much you were set for at that point. Paypal payments mentioned here are only for additional stuff beyond what you had when the project closed. You decided to order additional copies for friends, change your mind about getting the minis, that sort of thing.

      Thanks again for the update and the hard work to make this game so great!

      @Dominic: As long as you picked a pledge level for the game, you should be fine. If you're not certain about that, just check that 'view pledge' button near the top of the page.

      Just to make sure, if we don't order more copies of the game, we don't need to pay for the base game pledge via Paypal right? I mean we got charged via Kickstarter already no? Can't remember sry.
