Frequently Asked Questions
We are working with a reputable fulfillment and logistics partner. They have a pricing list that they use and unfortunately there are some countries that are prohibitively expensive to ship to. The prices you see are the prices we are being quoted by our fulfillment partner (minus $6 that we are subsidizing).
For Norway and Switzerland specifically, the shipping is more expensive than the rest of EU because they are not actually part of the EU and there are additional costs associated with getting packages through customs.Last updated:
A large part of the game is played with players taking actions simultaneously, so additional players do not significantly extend the length of the game. More players may create more volatility during the market phase but for the most part the game plays similarly whether you are playing with just 2 players or all 5.Last updated:
Yes! It can become difficult to track what other players are doing, but the game can be played with more players. You can use the additional dice and player boards from a second copy of the game. We have not play tested it yet, but if you choose to play with more than 6 players, we suggest you shuffle the decks together from both copies of the game since there is a good chance you will run out of blueprint cards.Last updated:
We would love to be in retail but getting the attention of distributors largely depends on the success of the Kickstarter campaign. There is a very real possibility that Fantastic Factories may never be available at retail outside of retailers who choose to back the Kickstarter. We know there's always risk in backing a Kickstarter so as a thanks for joining us on this journey, we've priced the pledge levels below our the MSRP of $40 and are also including promo cards that will not be widely available through retailers that receive the game through distribution.Last updated:
Will the rulebook be available in Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Chinese, or some other non-English language?
We currently have no plans on doing any translations. However, often times backers are interested in helping provide translations of the rulebook. If you are interested in helping, please send us a message!Last updated:
No, there will be no stretch goal for upgrading the tokens to a different material. There are a couple reasons why we are not doing this. When we tested it out, some players actually preferred the chipboard tokens because they more accurately reflect the icons shown on the cards. Additionally, the wooden tokens would have raised the cost of the game considerably.
For people who prefer wooden tokens, I would recommend you buy some from The Game Crafter. They have some thematic wooden tokens in the shape of gray iron ingots and red lightning bolts that are perfect for Fantastic Factories:
If you want to order more than 2 copies of Fantastic Factories, you must select the Two-Pack Bundle pledge and pledge the below additional amount for each copy you want (this amount includes the additional shipping):
For Continental US/EU/Norway/Canada/AUS/China follow directions above, then add an additional $31 for each extra copy you want.
For Alaska/Hawaii, add $37 per extra copy.
For Puerto Rico, add $36 per extra copy.
For New Zealand, add $36 per extra copy.
For Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and Japan, add $33 per extra copy.
And for the rest of the world, add $40 per extra copy.
We are not offering any group buy discounts outside of the shipping savings.
For example, if you live in Belgium, the Two-Pack Bundle is $56 plus $15 shipping (total of $71). If you would like 4 copies of the game, you would add $31 for each additional copy so your pledge should be for a total of $133.
If you are currently pledged at the Retailer pledge level but are not a retailer, please switch your pledge to the Two-Pack Bundle and adjust your pledge amount for the quantity you want.Last updated:
No, we have no plans on using a pledge manager so please make sure your pledge is correct before the campaign ends.Last updated:
