Some notes on social stretch goals:
- Facebook Likes are for our official Magpie Games Wizard Kittens post!
- Campaign shares are tracked based on bit.ly links. You can share the campaign using these links:

- Pics and videos can be posted anywhere, so long as they are shared with us—at @MagpieOfficial on Twitter, Magpie Games on Facebook, or these campaign comments. We'll be checking #WizardKittens as well, but please share your pics and videos with us directly to make sure we see them!
We're happy to ship Wizard Kittens anywhere in the world! Thanks to our international fulfillment partners, backers in the EU, CA, and AU won't pay any customs or VAT on any of their shipments.
We will charge shipping as we fulfill each item. YOUR PLEDGE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE COST OF SHIPPING. We use a pledge manager to collect information and handle add-ons and pre-orders, but we will deliver each physical item by sending you a coupon for our webstore; you pay for shipping when you order the book. Each coupon will be valid for one year.
Estimated Shipping Costs
- Domestic Shipping: For USPS shipping, we expect to charge $5-10 per package. We’ll have upgrade options to USPS Priority, UPS, etc.
- EU/AU/CA Shipping: We work with fulfillment partners in the EU, AU, and CA. The cost to ship a package through these partners is $10-12. We will offer upgrade options that include tracking, priority, and more.
- Everywhere Else: We expect shipping everywhere else to be roughly $12-15 per package. We will offer upgrade options that include tracking, priority shipping, etc., but upgraded shipping will probably start at $40+.
Risks and challenges
This is Magpie Games' eleventh Kickstarter, and we've got a long history of fulfilling projects, including Urban Shadows, Masks, Bluebeard's Bride, and many more. We've got a good grasp on how to get stuff designed, written, illustrated, shipped, and fulfilled.
Over the past few years, we've also developed a solid expertise in dealing with cards and card games. We've printed decks of cards for multiple projects already (Masks, Bluebeard's Bride, Zombie World), and we're already working with our printer to get the files for Zombie World ready for print.
Anything marked as a Kickstarter Exclusive will not be available via traditional distribution channels. We may have some for sale via convention appearances or our webstore, but you won't be able to find any Kickstarter Exclusive cards or boxes in a retail store (unless that store backed this campaign).
The largest problem we've encountered is delays. We've taken all the steps we can to deliver this project on time, including finishing the core design and getting the cards laid out in advance of this Kickstarter. We'll keep backers informed at all times about what's happening with the project. Our commitment is always to the quality of our work, but nothing makes us happier than shipping games!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
