Adam's Apple Games is subsidizing all shipping by $8 US.  All games to the US will ship for free.  We're committed to delivering duty-friendly shipping and have done so with our last two projects Brewin' USA and Truck Off.

Risks and challenges

"Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing." This qualifies, but making new things is also tough! This is my third Kickstarter campaign. Swordcrafters does present some additional manufacturing challenges due to nature of the 3D design.

I'm approaching product development and testing with rigor and will put product quality before timing if needed. My board game publisher and kickstarter experiences as well as my day job as a packaging engineer will be my foundation to deliver a great product and campaign. My money-back guarantee displays my confidence in the game and the product development challenges.

I will communicate along the way. You'll know if anything unexpected happens and I will do my best to make it right. I am building a track record of delivering games on time meeting project deadlines and avoiding unexpected shipping delays. The game play is solid with little to no tweaks expected. Artwork is paid for and final files are on track for completion before the end of the project.

Thanks so much for checking out our project. I would be humbled if you back me. Let's craft swords together!
