      Well done, Jason! I'm yet to regret giving you money for any of your games.

      @Scott: Well, once someone pays for a copy of an item, they are free to sell that item to someone else. Me? I'm keeping my LE. I haven't opened it yet, but I'm sure I will in a month or so once I have the time to dive head first into it all.

      Sadly I have seen that some copies of the game have been listed on eBay. I am still not sure if this is a bad thing or a good thing. I am disappointed that some were in this only for a chance to make money but I am also anxious to see what the secondary market will pay for this great game.

      @Albey Amakiir, giving misleading information may be more interesting than giving no information. Moreover, if one of your agents has been successfully bribed without you knowing, and you haven't successfully bribed any of your opponent's, you'll have no “second turn”. Thus, defending against bribes might be interesting too.

      Creator Albey Amakiir on September 13, 2012

      So, I was playing it with a friend, and he asked what the point of doing anything on the normal turn was. Once you have bribed someone and can take a turn to change your move, there's no point in doing anything before the move change, because you can still change everyone's moves. For that reason, and because it's far more expensive to defend against bribes than to bribe, it's pointless to pay your guys anything. I didn't really have an answer for him. Can anyone enlighten me?

      have they actually been used?
      I especially like the traveller's cheque from 1967.

      Ok, I gave in and opened it at work. :P
      The back of the game says "For sale, rental and use only in USA, Canada, Mexico and Latin America". I'm glad DS games aren't region-locked. :P

      Great to hear that people are getting their copies! International folks may need to wait a bit longer, because the packages have to go through customs in your countries....

      Wow, got mine yesterday - thanks so much! I don't want to spoil it for people who haven't got it yet, but the Limited Edition is fantastic - I really enjoyed opening it and going through all the bits.

      Thanks so much for running a great Kickstarter campaign! The communication has been great, and it's amazing to have the game in my hands with no problems.

      We're shipping via US Postal Service.

      Also, if you're moving in the next month or two... well... the postal service should forward your mail, right? But if you don't trust that, then you should use a STABLE alternative address (like the address of a parent or friend) to receive the package for you. Hopefully we'll ship most of them out by the 23rd. But I'm doubtful that they'll be delivered by the 23rd....

    33. Missing_small

      Creator Chris Sauro on August 1, 2012

      Is it being shipped via USPS or a parcel service? I have different preferred shipping addresses for each.

      @Jason
      Emailed you at the address on your website. I can't seem to be able to send you a notice in Kickstarter (suspect that it's for project creators only). As I said in the email, I can always send you the shipping through Paypal.

    40. Avatar%20image.small

      Creator Antonio Garcia on June 2, 2012

      @Jason: Good choice. Sure, we would all love to get some of the content early, but listening to the music in the game BEFORE we listen to the anthology is definitely the way to go.

    41. Jason_and_kids_800x600.small

      Creator Jason Rohrer on May 31, 2012

      No, the download will come later, about a month after the game ships. We spent a TON of time working on this interactive music engine, so that's how I want you to hear the music first. I worry that if we send you the Anthology album at the same time (or before) the game, you'll listen to the music that way (linear versions) first. I want to give you plenty of time to hear the music generated in the game before you get a chance to hear the linear versions!

    42. Missing_small

      Creator Hiu Pan Chan on May 30, 2012

      From your update #3: "A private digital download of the Anthology album will be added as an automatic bonus for everyone who gets the limited edition."

      Will we get the download before we get the game? Just wondering... while we wait for shipment.

    43. Avatar%20image.small

      Creator Antonio Garcia on May 30, 2012

      I'm ok with Jason signing some of the regular editions (either in person at an event, or as part of the mail order part of his site, for an extra "food and shelter" fee hehehe), since those wouldn't be XXXX/1000 serialized AND they wouldn't include the crazy extras he'll include in the LE ones.

    44. Jason_and_kids_800x600.small

      Creator Jason Rohrer on May 30, 2012

      Well, there will be lots (thousands) of regular editions left over after the Kickstarter rewards are filled. Those will likely be sold mail order through my website. Since there will be so many of them, they will indeed not be "special" at all. I really want to keep the Limited Edition limited... thus, there are only 1000 copies and there will be only 1000 copies, ever! That was the promise.

      But if you catch me in person somewhere (indieCade this fall or GDC this spring), I'd be happy to sign your regular edition for you! : )

    45. Img_6310.small

      Creator Steven Davis on May 29, 2012

      Jason -

      Since there were only a couple of us (relatively speaking) who did not get here in time to get the limited edition perks, would you consider signing and serializing for the rest of us even with numbers above 1000?

      I, for one, would be happy to pay a kicker for a signed copy, if possible.

      After all, it looks like all editions are pretty limited!

      Thanks,

      Steve

      Creator Jason Rohrer on May 28, 2012

      Yes, that's correct. A survey will be sent around to collect information. But that will happen later, right when we're about to ship the games out, so that we don't need to worry about people moving or changing addresses between now and then.

      You will get a survey to fill out for Jason to know where to ship your game or games.
