What's the Deal!

Over a year ago Brian Fargo of inXile Entertainment and me, Jackson Robinson of Kings Wild Project, starred in the feature-length documentary about crowdfunding entitled Capital C. The film followed the journey of three unique crowdfunded campaigns, including Brian Fargo's Wasteland 2 project and my own project Federal 52.

Brian and I hit it off great at the film’s premier and during the night's conversation we had the idea of continuing the story by doing a project together.

This is the idea: I’d illustrate a deck of cards inspired by the story and characters of Wasteland 2. It was an easy fit from the beginning as I am a huge gamer and I have worked in the gaming industry for many years before I was able to quit my day job and devote my time to my playing card company.

This project is the continuation of the crowdfunding story that began with Capital C. I invite all of you to be part of this exciting journey by becoming backers of this project!

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

A playing card project is a big task. There are so many elements that have to work together in order for a playing card project to function smoothly and succeed with satisfied backers with decks of cards in their hands.

The Wasteland 2 Playing card deck will be my 12th playing card project and 13th project on Kickstarter. I have learned so much from my past Kickstarters. I have learned some valuable lessons of what TO do, and what NOT to do.

Below are the biggest three hurdles with any playing card project, and how I plan to overcome them:

1. Keeping your rewards & add on system simple and easy to understand.

As I did with both my Federal 52 Part II, Sherlock Holmes, Independence, Scarlett Tally Ho & Army projects I have given the pledge tiers Alphanumeric labels to help you understand what you are pledging for. Beside every pledge tier there is a letter/number key that you can match up with a graphic that will give you a visual representation of what is included in that pledge tier.

2. Keeping International Shipping transparent and easy to understand.

I have received my share of bumps and bruises in the past trying to figure out the most transparent and understandable method of communicating to international backers how much to add for Int. shipping. Int. Shipping is expensive, there is no way around it. I ship all of my deck using the USPS. It is not my intention to try and profit form international shipping I'm only trying not to go broke from it. I am totally transparent with shipping costs and have included an average breakdown of how much international shipping costs both you and me, so that all the information is out on the table, so you can be a well informed backer.

3. Fulfillment is by far is the most difficult process of any playing card project.

With my first Federal 52 Project I got my hands calloused by tackling the fulfillment of 3000 orders by myself. With my second project, Federal 52 Part II, I ventured out and gave a fulfillment company a shot at taking on the challenge. I have learned that playing cards and the shipping of them is an art in and of itself. Something that is VERY important to me is that the same amount of care and detail is given to the packing and shipping of my playing cards as is going into the design. Because of this fact I always ensure that care and time is taken that every package is packed securely and properly regardless of it being one deck or three bricks. This way, the handling, packing and fulfilling of your rewards is always met with a level of excellence that you expect from anything with the Kings Wild logo on it.

As of now Kings Wild Fulfillment has successfully fulfilled four playing card projects with over 10000 unique orders.
