The Story So Far:

It will not be surprising to you that I have a love of Fishing and Board Games and so does my family.

You will notice from the above that the Prototype for Global Angler - Exploring The World Of Fishing has been completed.It is basically ready for production. I have invested significant amounts of my own capital to date to bring it to this stage and now bring it to Kickstarter to finish this very exciting project. The game has been specifically designed to be able to be played in any country in the world hence the name Global Angler.It has a focus on all countries where recreational fishing is a major pastime. It has been extensively play tested with some very impressive feedback. Amazingly even people that don't have an interest in fishing love Global Angler. 

The game focuses on sustainability of Fish For The Future and showcases some amazing facts about Marine and Freshwater Environments throughout the World.

I Need You!

I believe that this game is unique in that no previous fishing games have been produced on a Global theme that can be played anywhere in the world. There have only been games specific to different regions.This game is specific to all countries and features some Globally renowned fishing locations including USA, Europe,Canada,Australia and many more.You'll never play a game like this.

All funds raised will be utilised for the first production run of the game.Your valued support will enable me to complete this project and bring the fun and excitement of fishing to many families throughout the world. If you are unable to afford to back this project please share it with your family and friends as it is likely that someone you know enjoys fishing or would like to learn more about it and will appreciate it.

Shipping.

I will be charging shipping after the campaign ends to ensure each backer is charged appropriately for what they order. For example, if you order one game, your shipping will obviously be less than someone who orders several games.

Where specified some rewards do include free shipping.

Shipping boxed games can be expensive, and shipping and customs costs are always changing. I am cautious about the possibility of overcharging some of you, so rather than set flat rates by country, I will be adding shipping costs when your package is ready, through a well known shipping provider. This will get you the most accurate rate based on the time I send and your location.

A rough estimate for a single game based on current rates,

USA, Canada,UK, Australia: $20-$25

Europe: $25-$30 (most countries)

Asia: $20-$25 (China) $25-$35 (most countries)

New Zealand: $25-$35

South Africa/South America: $35-$45 (most countries)

Please contact me via Kickstarter for any enquiries in relation to Shipping.

Shipping is always a complex process for any board game. I want to make sure that your order is delivered promptly, safely and cost effectively. I am also using friendly shipping to ensure that you're not hit with nasty customs charges when collecting your game.

Risks and challenges

Global Angler - Exploring The World Of Fishing has been tested, improved and optimized by me over several years in countless test games by others. The Global Angler game I present here is final and works without restrictions. All pictures/designs of the basic game are ready for production.
Since only printed products are used in the game (with the exception of just the 6 game pieces), the risk of production complications is rather low. In addition, Global Angler has explicitly decided not to use a complicated system of add-ons and additional rewards. This decision significantly limits the scope for shipping errors and allows me to focus entirely on the perfect finalization of the game.

Nevertheless, there are always unforeseen circumstances that can affect the process during the production/shipment of a game. Delay by third parties, shortage of materials, strikes and natural disasters can never be fully excluded. You can rest assured, however, that I will do everything to reduce the influence of unfavorable circumstances to an absolute minimum. In addition, I promise to provide regular and transparent information regarding current status via updates and social media, so that you will always have a clear overview of the overall standing.

As is clearly visible from the campaign, I have become quite familiar with the topic and have done my homework. I know what to expect and where possible risks lie. I would be happy if you support my project, in return I will deliver you a functioning, high-quality produced game on time.

Thankyou For Your Support.
