Mid Week Update - GOOD NEWS!! STRETCH GOALS LOWERED!
We got to talk with the factory late last night, and worked out how to make the cost per card go down when we add the cards to the deck to make the nebulae and neutron stars a reality. Here is what we came up with as our new and improved Stretch Goals!
$21,000 - Add 6 Nebula Cards to the Deck.
$30,000 - Add 6 Neutron Stars to the Deck
$35,000 - Release the co-op rules as a downloadable content upgrade.
$42,000 - Print the co-op rules with the base game AND upgrade the board to 16x16 from it's current 8x16.
The remaining levels all stay the same.
For those of you that asked, the board is mounted, meaning the sheet the board is printed on will be permanently attached to a chipboard base, just like Ticket to Ride, in fact the box will be the same specs as Ticket to Ride, with the linen embossing and everything, because they are the same factory that produces Ticket to Ride...how is that for quality?
Please help us to our stretch goals! Send tweets, maybe if enough of us tweet @neiltyson (noted astrophysicist and radio/tv personality) he'd notice!
Remember the add-ons that are available:
$5 - Card Sleeves
$10 - Custom Collector Card
$30 - Exotic Wooden Player Tokens
$100 - All Pewter Limited Collector Edition from Reaper Miniatures
We have had some good press lately from gaming blogs and tabletop gaming news, so things are looking up! Eleven Days to go! Our updates will begin to increase now as we near the home stretch, so thank you all for backing the project and may you have clear skies!
Dave, Krista and Chris.
