      Congratulations on reaching all the stretch goals!

      What sizes will the two types of cards be?

    4. Tim W.K. Brown on October 6

      Thanks everyone!

      Thanks everyone for an awesome campaign. It was a lot of fun and we hit all of our stretch goals - how about that!

      Again, we REALLY appreciate everyone's support and enthusiasm. We'll send an update tomorrow. Now it's time for us to get to work.

    6. Steve Noorhoff on October 5

      Alright!!!! Congrats all.

      @David: You rock, man! Put us over $10K, and unique photography for all the Shooting Star cards. We all thank you.

    8. David on October 5

      I'm happy to make an 11th hour pledge and push this past 10k. Cheers.

    9. Teresa on October 5

      Sooo close! Let's get to 10K

    10. Steve Noorhoff on October 5

      C'mon 10,000!!!

      Omg...that new SG looks incredible!!

    12. CSE Games 3-time creator on October 5

      Hey folks, we added one last Stretch Goal -- unique astro-photography for each of the 15 Shooting Star cards. Have a look in the Stretch Goals section.

      We have 7.5 hours to hit it. Let's give it a shot. Share, share, share!

    13. CSE Games 3-time creator on October 5

      Hey everyone, just a reminder that the campaign ends tonight at 11:59 pm EST. Thanks for all the amazing support and enthusiasm. You helped us create a beautiful game.

      @Markus Tomten Nilsson: We just sent you a DM. Have a look. Thanks.

      Drop this because the shipping makes this to expensive.

      @KETS: We're happy to have you on board! Thanks for the pledge.

      The regular game board will be a quality cardboard with a nice matte finish.

      This has been on my "probably" list for a while, so I'm happy to finally be on board.

      One quick question: what, exactly, is the base playmat made out of/how sturdy is it? I'm normally not a playmat upgrade kind of person, but I might do it for this...

    18. CSE Games 3-time creator on October 3

      @Karanaida: Thanks for the question. There will be a pledge manager of some kind, we are still working out the details. Having extra packs of stones included as an add-on is a good idea. Let's see if we can hit a couple more of these Stetch Goals first.

    19. Tim W.K. Brown on October 3

      Happy to help :)

      Ooooh, Tim! That sounds like fun! And thank you for responding so quickly. I am primarily a solo gamer but was banking on the beauty and simplicity of this game to entice my daughter and sometime game partner to play it. With your suggested solo variant, I am ensured even more plays which justifies my pledge even more. (Had to cancel another KS pledge because of the lack of potential for solo play, more's the pity.)

    21. Tim W.K. Brown on October 3

      Off the top of my head for a solo variant,

      Flip the top card of the deck and place the stones depicted on the card, onto the board. Then draw three cards to your hand. Add or remove stones to make the patterns from one or more of the cards in your hand, keep track of how many moves it takes you to complete all cards in your hand, or draw a card each time you make a match and keep track of how many moves it takes to match all the cards from the deck. Then try to beat your record.

    22. Tim W.K. Brown on October 3

      Maricel, I don't currently have a solo variant. But I'm open to suggestions :)

      Sooo...random question and I apologize if this has already been broached. But would it be possible to play this solo somehow? I'm not asking for an official solo variant; just curious if the gameplay could be manipulated to accommodate me when I'm by myself.

      Will there be a pledge manager after the campaign? It would be cool to be able to add on extra sapphire packs if we don't hit that last SG.

      @Steve Noorhoff: You said it Steve, lots of time to hit some of the super-cool Stretch Goals.

    28. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 24

      @Jason Haseldine: Thanks Jason. Yeah, we're already close to the first Stretch Goal.

    29. Jason Haseldine on September 24

      Awesome! Congrats guys :D now to start smashing through those stretch goals :)

    30. Steve Noorhoff on September 23

      Congrats to the Kickstarter team. Bring on the stretch goals. Lotsa time to achieve them all.

    31. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 21

      @Jason Haseldine: Great idea. We will include the Kicktraq link in the next update.

    32. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 21

      @Shaun Mehew: Thanks for the message. Yes, the game is quite compact. The game box measures 8" x 8" x 2" and will weight about 1.75 lbs.

      As mentioned previously, we're still working on a few options to potentially save a bit of money on shipping outside of North America.

    33. Jason Haseldine on September 21

      Though it would be great to lower the shipping charges, it would also be detrimental to the funding of the project and reaching further stretch goals (though I imagine the more realistic pricing would attract more backers) but we can all visit the Kicktraq page and bump our chances of the game being spotted and funded massively, it may be worth putting the link in an update @CSE so it reaches all of those that don't follow the comments. The link is;

      The game looks really good. But the shipping costs as much as the game itself...
      Lets wait for the next update :)

    35. Missing avatar

      Shaun Mehew on September 20

      Will it be fairly travel friendly, as in the box kept as compact as possible?

      That's great! Yes I'm backing a few games and most games are €5-€10 for shipping to Europe,
      even bulky ones.

    36. Jason Haseldine on September 19

      Thanks @CSE that would be great! :D

    37. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 19

      Hi guys, thanks for your messages about shipping outside North America. We are currently looking at a few options to potentially reduce the cost. We will have more info in an update later this week.

    38. Missing avatar

      Shaun Mehew on September 19

      Oh yes just seen the shipping cost, guys you need to work to get that down!

    39. Jason Haseldine on September 18

      *price for shipping that is...

    40. Jason Haseldine on September 18

      This game looks brilliant! Though I agree the price seems too much (as much as the game itself?!), I still can't wait to play it.

      Each of us should keep visiting the Kicktraq page to ensure the game gets more views and potentially more backers so we can smash the stretch goals :)

      This game looks really nice, but I don´t think I keep my pledge because with shipping the game be to expensive for what it is.

    42. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 14

      Hey guys, there were a few questions regarding the size of the neoprene playmat. We answered the private messages, but wanted to make sure everyone was aware. It measures 7.5" x 7.5" and does fit in the box.

    43. CSE Games 3-time creator on September 12

      @ThomasDN: Love the enthusiasm! We're making some good progress.

    44. Missing avatar

      Shaun Mehew on September 11

      Sorry just read properly, It's a neoprene upgrade:)

    45. Missing avatar

      Shaun Mehew on September 11

      Just to clarify, so the standard pledge just has stones and cards? Or does it come with a card/paper playmate/board and the upgrade is a neoprene mat?

      @Matthew Lower: Yes, the playmat will fit in the box. Good question.

      1/4 of the way there, Woo hoo!!
