Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. If you want to add more copies of the games to your pledge, just add $34/49/69 (depending on what game) for each extra copy via “Manage your pledge”. If you for example have a pledge of $53 (incl. shipping) for one copy of Pax Transhumanity shipping to USA and want to add one copy change pledge amount to $87 (don’t change reward level). This also works for pledges with many games, like the "Collector" pledge level. There is no extra cost for shipping when adding extra copies of the games!
After the kickstarter is over we will send out a survey in which you can fill out how many games you’ve pledged for.Last updated:
What’s the difference between the earlier version of Pax Porfiriana (Collectors edition) and the version in this kickstarter?
The board print/image quality will be updated and the back of the board will not feature Pax Pamir but instead probably Pax Transhumanity (Matt is still working on this). There will be some changes in the rules but nothing big. These will be based on the current living rules and a few minor tweaks that Phil adds. There will also be a new and more thorough version for solo play, in addition to the version already there from before. And the components may be a bit different depending on how many of the stretch goals we manage to unlock. Quote from Phil regarding the changes:
"The new edition Pax Porfiriana will have 4 cards changed, only slight wording changes in text for clarity, does not affect gameplay. The four cards are 051, 129, 133 and 182
Also the rules will have some clarifications."Last updated:

We have decided to do a small reprint of Bios:Genesis and Bios:Megafauna 2 for this campaign. In this way you will have the possibility to obtain the complete the Bios Trilogy, in case you don't have part 1 and 2 (genesis and Megafauna) from before..
If you are interested then increase your pledge with 39 USD for Bios:Genesis and/or 74 USD for Bios:Megafauna 2. Normal price is 44 and 84 USD but we want to follow our tradition to let kickstarter backers have a better-than-normal price :) If you want several copies of any of those two gams just add multiples of 39 or 74 USD. Our flat shipping rate apply to the add ons-as well, so you can add any number of Bios:Megafauna 2 and/or Bios:Genesis without any extra shipping costs!
After this Kickstarter there will (as always) be a backer survey. In this survey, it is important that you tell us how many of each of Megafauna and Genesis you have added as an add-on.Last updated:
Only Bios: Genesis and Bios: Megafauna 2 are offered as as add-ons. But if you want other games you can order them from our web shop: https://www.sierra-madre-games.com/ and if you are a backer who will receive games, you may chose the alternative "Kickstarter-Combined Shipping", (this offer does not apply if you are an AUDIENCE or SUPPORTER backer). If you chose "Kickstarter-Combined Shipping", you also HAVE TO write "E18 BACKER: " followed by your Kickstarter user name (used to back for this campaign) in the comment section at the checkout in the web shop. NOTE: If you chose to do this for an order in the web shop your games in that order will not be shipped until the games from this Kickstarter campaign is shipped, which may be in June or may be later due to circumstances that we have no influence over.Last updated:
We hope to be able to include a soloversion in the rules of Pax Tranhumanity, as we have in Bios:Origins (second edition) and Pax Porfiriana. However, since these are not final we do not want to promise that they will be included, to avoid risking that this would delay the manufacturing process. Having said this, there is still a chance that the solo version will be done in time. We will keep you informed through the updates regarding this.Last updated:
Is it required to have Bios: Megafauna (second edition) to use the backside of the game board for Bios:Origins (second edition)?
No, all parts of the Bios:Origins (second edition) can be played using the rules that comes with the game, including building custom maps on the empty map board. The only thing you need Bios:Megafauna (second edition) for is if you want to play the campaign rules and base them on an end state of Bios:Megafauna (second edition).Last updated:
No but we will instead allow backers to change their pledge level through our website, if you want to add extra copies etc. We will give more information about this closer to the end of the campaign.Last updated:
