Cirkusu Stretch Goal is Close!
We are just 2 Cirkusu backers away from unlocking our next stretch goal puzzle! This stretch goal is for an additional set of acrylic playing pieces. Cirkusu comes with a set of wooden playing pieces (which are not shown in the product photos! I keep some things under wraps. :) so these acrylic pieces will be in addition.
This stretch goal was originally just for acrylic playing pieces, but I tested the designs on felt and they worked beautifully! So once this stretch goal is unlocked and its puzzle is solved, every Cirkusu series will come with an extra set of acrylic and/or felt playing pieces. To keep things simple for me, I will select colors and materials at random. They add a lovely spark of color to the series!
Here’s what the stretch goal pieces look like:

Every puzzle will ship with one of these! The material will be chosen at random.
