      @Gary Games - You should make an image that shows what each level will be getting, with the promotional items included. It's always very cool to see how the amount of stuff increases with each pledge level.
      And when people can see what they'll be getting, they might back more.

      @Mark Lin - If you want it shipped to your Canadian address, then add $15 to the pledge. If you have a US mailing address, then you can get it shipped there for free. You'll be asked your shipping address and other info some time after the Kickstarter ends.

      Game looks great! I live in Canada and dropped $100 to back the game. Will I still get a t-shirt or do I need to provide a US mailing address or add another $15?

      The best way I could have started today!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Creator rikki payne on September 7, 2012

      have you read the front page?... you can gain cards through playing (single player campaign mode) there will be booster drafts which you buy some sort of ticket for (tournament based)

      but that is exactly the reason why you should pledge more.... take the $25 teir you will get 2 starters and 5 boosters... thats perfect to get you up and running with the game!!

      if your a keen TCG player then aim higher because you are getting such a good deal on store credit that if you wanted to draft etc they are basically half price right now in terms of credit and you get a free one if you go above $32...

      @jerseydvd GG has said that all cards can be unlocked by playing the game.

      Qoute from the frontpage "You can earn cards and currency through gameplay to improve your decks without paying a dime!"

      Creator Kurt Vonnegut Jr. on September 7, 2012

      I'm worried about committing to more than the $5. I'm not sure I want to commit to a game that seems like it will rely heavily on purchasing new cards.
      At $5 I get to try it out and decide afterwards.

      Do I NEED booster packs to play?

      Common sense says completely free. I don't think you'll need to bring your own boosters to drafts here anyway, just a coupon.

    24. Missing_small

      Creator Chad Daniel on September 7, 2012

      When you guys wake up, I have a question! For the Free Draft for life tier, is the one per day draft completely free, as in you do not need anything in order to play. Or is more akin to MOTO where you have to provide your own booster packs, but you will not have to pay any "tickets".

      Creator Rich Anderson on September 7, 2012

      Thanks Adam & Charles. The 185 (I want the tshirt) vs 250 quandary is an odd one but a luxury problem to e sure! I'm 33 so can afford to support these things and always said id be in for one booster box (£85) worth of SolForge. Think I'm going to up to the £200 credit which should get me a Lot of Drafts or Sealed events to play in. I can always add
      Up to 250 or 500 should the value become that bit clearer. If I had 1980 spare I'd do that for sure, but that would mean retiring from MTG and Ascesnion style games for a bit and the stores I run games at may be upset... :D

      Let the final SolfOrgy commence!
