If you don't want any physical items, then the best thing to do would be to back the $25 tier but increase your pledge amount to $30 (Android and iOS add-ons are only $5).
If you wanted the physical rewards, the best thing to do would be to back at the $30 tier but increase your pledge to $35. When we send out the survey shortly after the campaign ends you will be able to let us know what the additional funds are to be used for.Last updated:
Yes! We will sell this expansion after Kickstarter backers receive their copy, however by backing this project you will receive a version with Kickstarter-exclusive artwork on the cards. Plus backers will receive their copy before we start selling them to the public, so if you want to be one of the first to start playing this expansion you should look into backing that tier!
The same goes for the promo pack! This will be available to the public at a later date, but backers will receive their copy first and it will also have Kickstarter-exclusive artwork on the cards!Last updated:
Game Box: We’ve listened to your feedback, and have decided to go with a wooden box with a hinged top – really high quality and really easy to access. We’re not altogether certain on the depth yet, but it’s looking like a 4” deep box, the deepest we’ve ever produced for one of our games. We don’t want you to have any worries about being able to fit all the cool components in the box, so we’re going big here.
Cards: The cards will have a new and unique graphic layout, especially for this edition of the game. The CE will also include sleeves for all cards.
Map: We’re going with an even thicker, more durable map than the one that’s in our Deluxe Edition (and our players like that one a LOT!). And like the cards, the map is going to get a completely new graphic treatment for the CE.
Counters: We are upgrading from cardboard counters in the CE to give you guys high-quality, stamped wooden pieces.
Miniatures: The CE will include five metal miniatures to adorn several of your game tracks and add some cold war theme to your game play! We’re keeping the type/identity of these miniatures to ourselves for now. We want to surprise you!
Rules and Player Aids: This is an area where we’re pretty much going with what we already have in the Deluxe Edition – thick paper/cards, full color throughout, with perhaps a bit more thickness and better coating.
Dice: You’ll get two custom molded plastic “thematic” dice. We seriously considered metal dice, but all the ones we’ve ever used tend to flake from impact over time, so we decided to go with some high quality molded dice instead.
A Fabric Bag: To hold the game pieces.

Twilight Struggle will come with a single player mode against AI, pass-and-play multiplayer, both asynchronous and real-time online play so you can play against your friends or use Playdek's matchmaking system to start a game, and a rating system so you can compare your score to the score of your opponents. All of this is included in the game at no additional charge. The tournament system will come with a separate rating system and leaderboard in place and will require a small entry fee to join (pricing structure has not been decided at this time). These tournaments will be a place to go to prove to the world just how great of a player you are and for eternal bragging rights. These tournaments will be online matches so that anyone anywhere in the world may participate.
These "backer only" will only be available to backers at the appropriate tier levels.Last updated:
We are expecting to finish the game sometime in February 2015, so you should start to see the game and all other rewards come out around March 2015!Last updated:
For the $130 and $150 tiers it says I get the previous rewards plus the Collector's Edition. Does this mean I get both the CE and the Deluxe Edition mentioned in the $65/75 tiers?
Unfortunately no, you only receive 1 version of the game. Fortunately you are receiving the Collector's Edition which is signed and will include special art and will be printed at a limited quantity so lucky you!Last updated:
This is a mistake and they should read March 2015. Sorry for the confusion!Last updated:
