Frequently Asked Questions
We will try but not 100% sure if the games will arrive by then.Last updated:
It sounds great on paper but from own and other creators' experience we know that many people who choose such an option don't show up. This results in extra costs for publishers to bring the game back home and ship them to backers. Also it makes it a lot more difficult to run the booth.Last updated:
1. The game will be offered in retail and at the game fair in Essen (if the games arrive on time) at a significantly higher cost (€10-€15 higher).
2. The sleeve will not be produced for retail and only a small number of metal coin sets will be produced for retail.
3. This campaign strives to be a lot more than a mere pre-order! You can suggest and vote on bonus scoring, port and clan tiles and shape the final product!
4. You receive a money-back guarantee, if you back early even up to a 110% money-back guarantee!
5. By backing this Kickstarter, you allow me to devote more time to our awesome hobby and bring more great games to you soon!Last updated:
It is empirically proven that Stretch Goals are a major contributor to projects being delayed: "Our empirical results also reveal that the use of stretch goals significantly increases a project’s likelihood of delivery delay."
Scientific Paper: Motivating IT-Mediated Crowds: The Effect of Goal Setting on Project Performance in Online Crowdfunding): http://ssrn.com/abstract=2672056
Clans of Caledonia includes more than 220 custom wooden tokens, a modular map and a full solo variant including custom silk-screened dice. We recognise that many of these features are often added as stretch goals but we don't want to compromise a top quality final product. Also, we don't want to risk the game balance by adding content that was not playtested (and that is not marked as untested).
Even though we think that is the case, we are still going to add a few more components with your help!Last updated:
You can also add up to four additional sets of metal coins as an add-on to your pledge of the game by adding €19 per set of metal coins. You need to pledge the tier "Clans of Caledonia" or "Premium Clans of Caledonia" in order to add the metal coins as an add-on.
1) Click the blue "Manage" button on the right side of the project page
2) Then select the "Change your pledge" Button.
3) Here you will be able to change your Pledge Amount by increaseing it to include your add-on (for example: You are from the US so your shipping is €6, your pledge level is €59, so you add +€19 to the total of €65 you already pledged for. New total €84)
The metal coins are covered by a 100% money-back guarantee.
If you have any questions please comment on the project page.Last updated:
Yes, you can pledge for 2 copies and only pay for shipping once!
Let's say you pledge for Premium Clans of Caledonia at €59 and your shipping is €26. If you want another Premium copy, just manually increase your pledge and add another €59 (€59 + €26 + €59 = €144). If you want to add a base game, that is possible, too so you add 39€ and your total pledge is €124.Last updated:

I don't want to burn bridges with retailers so I won't offer discounted group order to private backers. Maintaining a healthy relationship to retailers is important in the long-run.Thank you for your understanding.Last updated:
No. Apart from being cost-prohibitive it is absolutely not necessary at all for this game. The only token whose position is important is the shipping token.Last updated:
NORWAY: Why are the shipping costs for backers from Norway at the premium level (€59) higher than specified (€26 instead of €12)?
Due to some bug in the backend, my specification of shipping costs for Norway got lost for the premium tier (59€). The support team can't really help me fix this but told me the easiest solution is to refund you within 2 weeks after the Kickstarter has ended. Instead of €26 your final shipping cost per pledge will be €12. I'm sorry for the inconveniences. Please tell your Norwegian friends so they won't be scared off by the wrong shipping cost of €26 for the premium tier. Thank you!
How do I issue a refund to one of my backers?
To provide one of your backers with a refund, head to your Backer Report from the Creator Tools menu. Click on the individual backer's name and select "Issue a refund." Once you enter your personal credit card information, you'll be able to issue a full or partial refund.
If you issue a refund within 14 days of your funding deadline, all fees will be refunded.
If a backer has been issued a full refund, it'll be reflected in your Backer Report. They'll no longer be able to post comments, but you can continue to communicate through messages.Last updated:
In Clans of Caledonia, you try to avoid dead capital like the plague. So you don't hoard goods but try to export or sell your goods as fast as possible. Also, when you buy a lot of one type of good, it drives up its price. Then, it becomes unattractive for other players to buy this type of good as well. In contrast, it makes selling this good very attractive. That's why the game does not need that many good tokens. In addition, the basic goods are refined to processed goods immediately, most of the time. If you run out of good tokens for one type, nonetheless (will happen rarely), then you can still use the multiplier tiles.Last updated:
Adding a fifth player does not work because the map would become too crowded.Last updated:
Ja, Lastschrift geht auch!Last updated:
Die Kurzregel ist auf deutsch und englisch.Last updated:
Unfortunately this is not possible because I'm shipping Green Deal personally from Berlin/Germany whereas your copy of Clans of Caledonia is not shipped by me.
Thank you for your understanding.Last updated:
