Bonus Reward - $50 DVD Pledge = Free Game!

Today's update is a new bonus reward. And it involves something everyone loves... free games!

The first 30 backers who pledge at the $50 DVD Level will receive a free game! 

Pledge now and you can own a copy of our recent documentary Made For Play: Board Games & Modern Industry PLUS walk away with a fast, fun, easy-to-learn game you can play with gamers and non-gamers alike.

NOTE: This bonus is for pledges specifically at the $50 DVD reward level. Add-on DVDs do not qualify for this bonus.

There are three games available for this bonus reward: 

Graverobbers, Square Shooters Deluxe Edition, and Rodeo Rummy.

Graverobbers comes to us courtesy of Jolly Roger Games. It is a Victorian-themed card game of bobbies and evil minions. For more information on the game, click here.

Square Shooters and Rodeo Rummy have been donated courtesy of Heartland Games. We spoke with Tom Donelan from Heartland Games at GenCon and learned all about the innovative dice used in both titles.

We will send out a survey once our campaign has ended to distribute the free games amongst the 30 lucky backers.

Thanks so much to Heartland and Jolly Roger for their support of The Spiel!

We're making great progress but we can use all the help we can get to spread the word during these last two weeks. Share links to the project and our videos, post on forums, like our posts on Facebook, tweet and retweet to your heart's content. The more people we reach, the easier it will be to make our goal.

Spiel on!

      Absolutely! The bonus is for the first 30 backers at the $50 DVD level, so if you have already pledged, you are one of those 30.

      I already pledged at the $50 DVD level. Am I grandfathered in as one of the 30?
