 *The Base game MSRP will be approx. $45USD (Over 30% OFF)

 *The Deluxe game will NOT be available in retail. Imagineers: Have More Fun (expansion - requires base game) will be approx. $25USD in retail and no Maple Exclusives will be in the retail expansion.

*The Deluxe 6 pack features the same shipping price as a single copy of the game ($50+ savings). This is a great way to save 5 shipping costs and get a game order together with friends.

Risks and challenges

Our team has years of experience with publishing games and we work with people with impeccable track records of successfully delivering previous Kickstarter projects to thousands of supporters in a timely fashion--if not sooner.

Our commitment to building a strong, supportive community around Maple Games will enable us to also deliver this project on time and with the highest quality possible. That said, there are always complexities and considerations in a project of this scope that may cause delays. There are many steps in the process of manufacturing and fulfilling a game, many of which involve partnerships. Through careful and thorough planning, common mistakes can be avoided. However, possible delays can occur from circumstances beyond our immediate control. If such an issue is encountered, our team will adapt and no corners will be cut to course correct as needed. Our greatest obstacle is simply the funding capital to manufacture such an ambitious product. Your contribution makes this a reality!
