"2nd edition of @policeprecinct takes a great game into the major leagues!"  -- Dan King

 This campaign offers you two great options:

1.  UPGRADE:  Get the $39 Full Monty Upgrade Kit. It contains certain 2nd Edition items that you can swap-out with your existing (1st Edition) ones, AND you get Crooked Lawyers along with all Stretch Goals!

2.  BUY THE 2ND EDITION:  If you simply must HAVE IT ALL, try selling your 1st Edition copy and pledging at the $55 level which gives you the 2nd Edition AND all stretch Goals from this campaign.

2E OWNERS:  For those of you who just got the 2nd Edition, we recommend you wait for our next Kickstarter which will be right up your ally.  It is slated to start in January.   

Let's start by looking at...

THE BOARD

Here's more of a close-up.  This time of the backside of the board, better known as The Unterbelly...

RULEBOOK

Take a LOOK!

2ND EDITION RULEBOOK -- Take a LOOK!

Now let's take a look at some of those cards starting with the...

PLAYER AIDS

With the roll-out of the 2nd Edition we can see that this 2-sided aid is much improved, including more thematic and much easier to use. Here's one side...

EVENTS

Another major area of change with the 2nd Edition is this particular deck, which has a whole NEW LOOK and is much more thematic (thanks Jake!)...

Now let's examine the assortment of pledge levels that you can choose from...

TOTALLY FRIENDLY 

All of the following areas are shipped locally, thus are considered Friendly Shipping Zones:

USA -- CANADA -- EU -- BRAZIL* -- AUSTRALIA

SEMI-FRIENDLY

There are areas that we consider "Semi-Friendly" with regard to shipping practices, which means that they will likely prove to be 100% Friendly but details should be read, as follows:

SOUTH AMERICA - (**see the footnotes section underneath the table above)

NEW ZEALAND -Based on the fact that we ship to NZ from Australia, here's what we've been told... "For an order to stay under the radar for import taxes the total cost of the package (contents + shipping) needs to be less than NZD400 so to be safe about USD200"  

WHAT'S BELOW?

Then came...

CHARACTER #18 

 And then...

CHARACTER #19

With Clarice and the other empowered women we have perfect gender balance!

And then...

 If you want details about this expansion, Go HERE!

  
Then...

CHARACTER #20

Then...

CHARACTER #21

Then...

And we have completed another set of cards!

This set includes a never seen before SNITCH tie-in card!

Along with a re-vamped Nothing Urgent card...

Then let's list this one (#16 -- sorry about getting a little out of order)...

Now back to this set:  It started with #15, and then we jumped to #17 (which is a 2 for 1, so you're getting #18 automatically as a bonus as well).  Then we finished it out with #19.

 And then in rapid succession we captured...

And then...

 And then we started in on THE MEGA SET!...

 LINK: to BGG discussion about these Mystery Cards!

 And moving on to the "The Man Hunt" for the big #30!!!...

Here we have 5 ways to earn the goal!!!...

* 1,811 will be the most comments ever in any of our campaigns!

(twitter: @policeprecinct)  (facebook)

THE GOAL

Then maybe even...

Time is running low with this campaign, but maybe we will get into some of these (roughly/possibly in this order)...

#F-300:  UC DECK -- (UC stands for Unknown Circumstances)
This is a really cool idea that originated with Andrei (2E backer), and involves the 4 blank make-your-own tokens.  Nothing is finalized yet, but the wheels are turning and we think this could be done, and done well -- right here in the USA, which would allow us time to complete it prior to the shipment arriving from China (thus not slowing down the project). More about this soon.  Click to see the thread that got it all started and the particular post where I started going truly bonkers for this idea!
AND... Click HERE!

#F-335: GANG PROLIFERATION -- adding to the Gang Deck

#F-450:  FREE CUSTOM DIE -- Meaning the same type of dice that are offered as an add-on item (see add-on section below).

#F-460:  Eight-PLAYER EXPANSION -- meaning support materials to allow for a 7th and 8th player to join-in (this might involve making player aids, and certain other items, in the USA so as not to delay the project).

SALUTE TO COPS

Speaking of cops, we would like to take a moment to commend all the great people who work so very hard every day to keep us all safe!

REAL COPS

Risks and challenges

Having completed the delivery of rewards to ALL three of our successfully funded projects, we feel that our track record speaks for itself.

Support this project

  1. Select this reward

    Pledge $1 or more About $1.00

    ONLY FOR BRAZIL: This is... "BRAZIL -- WAVE #3":

    BRAZIL FRIENDLY!!!

    THE 2ND EDITION PACKAGE -- With this you get exactly the same thing that Wave #1 and/or Wave #2 got (for details see below -- $75 and $76 levels). The difference is...

    YOU only need to put down a small (non-refundable) amount through this Kickstarter to reserve your spot.

    Then, if things go well (as we expect) with those two waves, YOU will receive your rewards after settling-up with us (send us a Paypal for the difference = $101 USD).

    Yes! Your wave is last to get games, BUT you do PAY LESS, and you don't have your money tied-up for so long like the other two waves!

    If this pledge level sells out we will take some sort of action to make sure everyone can get a copy of the game (possibly add a level for JUST the game with no extras -- tbd)

    ECONO MONTY -- This pledge level is exactly the same as "THE FULL MONTY" (see below) except that when it comes time to ship the rewards, these will go last (this means that you will get yours some number of days later than the regular backers) -- that's the only difference.

  4. Select this reward

    Pledge $39 or more About $39

    THE FULL MONTY -- With this you get just about... "Everything!" that an owner of the 1st edition might want in terms of an upgrade toward 2nd Edition:

    All Stretch Goals from this project!

    A newly redesigned 2-Sided Board ($25 value)

    A newly redesigned Event Deck ($19 value)

    A newly redesigned Loyalty Deck ($8 value)

    6 copies of the newly redesigned Player Aid Card ($7 value)

    The Revised Rulebook (especially designed for the 1st Edition -- $12 value)

    All of the 16 newly redesigned Characters [8 boards with 8 male & 8 female Characters -- 16 individual Characters in all] ($19 value)

    And one copy of Crooked Lawyers ($14 value)

    Grand Total $104 Value (plus Stretch Goals!)

    KICKSTARTER AMOUNT = $39

    And you get SPEED! (your rewards will be shipped ahead of the Econo backers)

    IF SELL-OUT: Should this package sell-out, we definitely will work to take care of the rest of you in some way. Likely by instantly adding another pledge level. There are assorted economic forces at play behind the scenes (we'll spare the details) that drive our costs up at this point, thus the new pledge level will be higher and likely different in it's exact composition (maybe called "Monty II") , but we'll figure it out if we get to that point. The bottom line is that you WILL be taken care of. No Question About That!

    ONLY FOR BRAZIL: This is... "BRAZIL -- WAVE #2":

    BRAZIL FRIENDLY!!!

    THE 2ND EDITION PACKAGE -- With this you get just about... "Everything!!!" that a fan of Police Precinct might want!

    (See Brazil Wave #1 for details [$76 Pledge Level], you get exactly the same reward package, just shipped later is the only difference)

    KICKSTARTER PRICE = $75

    YES, THIS IS BRAZIL FRIENDLY!!!!

    Wave #1 will ship first, and then later YOU (Wave #2), but only AFTER confirmed success of Wave #1 (if things don't go well with Wave #1 in our opinion then we'll try a different approach for the Wave #2 or possibly refund all of your money if we think that is a better option for all concerned).

    We are strongly limiting the size of this group.

    We are offering this wave at a lower rate due to your extra wait time.

    Those who are a part of wave #1 or Wave #2 are considered "Trail-Blazers" in this grand Brazil Friendly Kickstarter experiment, and as Trail-Blazers you will be expected to report back to the community about how things played-out for you in this process.

  10. Select this reward

    Pledge $97 or more About $97

    20% DOWN FLGS PACKAGE: Launch a partnership with Common Man Games!!!

    RETAILER FRIENDLY!!!

    Your store will get 9 full copies of everything listed in the pledge level known as "THE 2ND EDITION PACKAGE" ($74).

    This is the solution to the retailer's Kickstarter dilemma! On one hand you want the cool Kickstarter extras, but on the other hand, you can't tie up all that money for such a long time.

    Common Man is here to help YOU!

    With this project you won't have to pay the majority of the cost until it's ready to ship. On top of that, if you don't want to complete the transaction at that time, you are free to walk away from the non-refundable pledge ($97).

    YOU GET: This package includes, not just 9 copies of the game, but also lots of extra goodies (which you can keep as a unit or break apart to sell separately).

    But wait, there's more...

    FREE ADVERTISING: Also included in this package is your store name on our website as a "Featured Dealer handling Common Man Games products", and we plan to leave this listing up indefinitely (we would only take it down if we become aware that you no longer intended to carry our games).

    FREE SOCIAL MEDIA: Any time, and as often as you want (frequency -- subject to CMG discretion), feel free to send us a link that relates clearly to our brand but also your store, and we will immediately post it on Twitter and/or the CMG Facebook page! (content also -- subject to CMG discretion)

    FREE DEMO COPY: we will also ship you one extra copy of the "2nd Edition Package" to use in your store as a demo. This game will have the shrink-wrap removed and may possibly have a ding or two (not meant for re-sale, but will be ideal as a demo copy).

    FREE EXTRA RIOTING GANGS: We will slip a few extras of this expansion into your shipment too.

    FREE OTHER PROMOS: We will try to toss a few extra promotional items into your shipment when the time comes (stay tuned).

    USA ADDRESS: This package is primarily for USA retailers, BUT if you are a retailer outside of The USA, you are welcome to participate in this pledge level if you provide us with the shipping address of your USA-based freight forwarder.

    RESTOCKING: When your games sell-out, you can get more from one of our distributors as follows -- via the GTS network (North America), via BNW's newwork (Europe), and via Milsims (Australia / New Zealand).

    LINKED TO DISTRIBUTION: We are interested in building our presence in the retail market via traditional channels (both here in the USA and in Europe), and in finding retailers who want to be a part of that process. With this in mind, for a retailer to qualify for this package, they must have an account with BNW or GTS (this particular requirement does not apply in other parts of the world).

    WAITING-PERIOD: For any dealers who backs at this level, there will be a built-in waiting period in relation to when your shipment will go out. It will occur after we have shipped the individual backers. This is done because we feel it is very important to your success that we get them taken care of before any copies are available in stores, in fact we like for them to be the very first ones, followed by the Pre-Release folks (if we even offer this), and then after they have all had ample opportunity to enjoy the game and help build the buzz, etc. (paving the way for your success), we will then ship YOU.

    Thus, you will receive the games well ahead of other dealers, who must wait for the official Street Date. NOT YOU!!!! We will ship directly to you weeks ahead of the Street Date.

    THE SMALL PRINT: This offer is limited to JUST ONE package per retailer. Also, we are limiting this pledge level such that there will generally be 1-2 open slots at any given time. This is being done so that we can take our time to have conversations with retail backers to make sure this is a good fit for them (among other things, we want to be able to carefully monitor the types of backers who are selecting this level, and under certain circumstances we may look toward altering this reward package in some way).
