      @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.

    9. Creator Kristopher Chesney on September 7, 2012

      @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.

    10. Creator Mark Lin on September 7, 2012

      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?

    11. Creator Joe on September 7, 2012

      Very happy to see that we were able to reach the goal. Hopefully they will release a beta version soon for us to try out as I am very excited to start playing! Lets hope we can start hitting some stretch goals too!

    12. Creator Olivier Trudel-St-Jean on September 7, 2012

      YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    13. Creator David Luchetti on September 7, 2012

      i am so very excited about this game!

      HUGE congrats to Gary Games!

      i still wish we should get our hands on the version of the game you demoed at PAX and GenCon ;-)

    14. Creator Killer Karma on September 7, 2012

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

    15. 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...

    16. Creator Daniel Lagerman on September 7, 2012

      @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!"

    17. 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?

    18. Creator Martin Nicolas on September 7, 2012

      Ain't that a nice present Brian? ;)
      Yay for getting SoForge funded!

    19. Creator Martin Eriksson on September 7, 2012

      Gratz guys! keep up the good work cant wait to get my hands on a Beta key and start playing for myself

    21. Creator Andy Cormack on September 7, 2012

      Congrats on getting funded guys! Can't wait to see this game come out :D

    22. Creator Chris S on September 7, 2012

      @rikki actually it's 8 hours. So 9PM to 11PM.

    23. Creator Naglfar on September 7, 2012

      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. 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".

    25. Creator rikki payne on September 7, 2012

      ok done it -7 hours.... so from 8-10 tonight for me!!

    26. Creator rikki payne on September 7, 2012

    27. Creator Joshua Logan on September 7, 2012

      So successfully kickstarting makes this a level 2 project. When does it become level 3?

    31. Creator cybercena89 on September 7, 2012

    32. Creator Martin Eriksson on September 7, 2012

    34. Creator Ryan Alarie on September 7, 2012

      Thanks to Penny Arcade ... I'm a huge Ascension fan (counting down the days to Immortal Heroes hitting my LGS so I can pick it up), so this sounds great, and I'm glad I found out about it before the last day.

    35. Creator Stuart Alexander Brock on September 7, 2012

      This is freaking great, I'm glad we finally did it. *Crossing fingers for animated cards*

    43. Creator Arjen on September 7, 2012

      Just couldn't resist the $1980 tier :) Congrats to all of us!

    44. Creator David Kotsonis on September 7, 2012

      Aaaand we're kicked! :D

    45. Creator Steven on September 7, 2012

      just pledged 250 entirely due to future android support, and this looking incredible. Glad to help!

    46. Creator zerragon on September 7, 2012

      I have faith in this game, just updated my pledge to 60$.
      And Happy Birthday :)

    47. 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!
