Have a question?
@Jill Wong @ TheMotleyGeek: The game board will be available to all backers that have pledged for gameboard and above. This will be in a high definition download, which you will be able to download some time before you get the games shipped to you.
Is there a possibility to get the *updated* digital copy of the game board? I'd like to get it printed in Neoprene. I don't want the current copy available on BGG, I want a digital copy of the *new-ish* one.
Never mind . Figured out it was just to add on stuff
Ok, I am a bit confused. I went to the web site, Selected Neanderthal and Greenland, put in the code, and it wanted me to pay $49.
didn't I already pay for the game by backing the kickstarter?
You should have received codes that will allow you to get items *from this Kickstarter* on the Sierra Madre store, at a discount and with free shipping. If you get any other products (ie, not Greenland, Neanderthal, or the game board), you pay full price plus shipping. You also don't get the discount if you use a different email or postal address.
Hope that helps.
Can we add any game from the store to pur pledge? I dont understand the email I got.
@Tony Bosca: If you don't want to add anything further to your pledge then you don't have to go to SMG's web store.
So if we've added a gameboard to our pledge in the normal fashion, the way it was introduced, and pledged the proper amount and all that, we don't have to do anything at SMG?
Thank you @Leo!
One more thing: the site is saying "No shipping methods found for this country" currently. For the US. Is this something I don't need to worry about since a game board would just ship with the games anyway?
@Brandon: Yes you're right. If you don't want to add anything extra you don't have to go to SMG's webshop.
@Marcel Stipetic: You are right. It should be if you want to add anything that was NOT included in this kickstarter campaign, then you will need to pay shipping for that/those extra.
Am I correct in thinking these codes are ONLY in case we want to add more items to our pledge? Meaning, if we're fine with how our pledge currently stands, we don't have anything we need to do on the SM website?
Hi Leo. I think you need to double check that first sentence below; did you mean any game "that was NOT included in this kickstarter..."? Otherwise, it seems to clash with the second sentence. Personally, I'm wondering if I can add one of the Bios games or Pax Ren, for example, to my pledge using the promo code. And if so, will a separate shipping charge be added?
@Jason Grantz: If you order other games (or game board) that was included in this kickstarter campaign through Sierra Madre Games' webshop you will need to pay shipping. Only games in this kickstarter can be added without extra shipping cost, with the promo code we will be sending out soon.
Thanks for the update! ;)
Will there be any way for Kickstarter supports of this project to save on shipping if they pre-order Pax Emancipation from the Sierra-Madre Games website? Assuming they'll be able to ship out around the same time?
Owwww... So sad I really expected to be playing around august at most... But well...nothing to be done about
@Sierra Madre Games Thanks for the answer!
The stretch goals included new solitaire and cooperative variants. These require testing and implementation, and another 8 pages to both the Greenland and Neanderthal rules. Accordingly the new completion estimated shipment date is September.
@Leo Borg Is ETA still July?
At first ot showed the word n a z i, right? Why would they censor it? A complaint? Does it censor "bad words" too?
@Clint Walker: It looks like it's "only" in the kickstarter app it censors the word n a z i. I can see them here via web browser.
Whoa! The comments section is censoring this word! That's crazy!!!
Why are we not using the word Nazi?
@Mr.Mo What's wrong with using the word nazi?
is it possible to get printable version of cards so we can test it in home-made variant?
I love, love, love the direction you went with the co-op. Being a neighbour of the people of Greenland I have always admired them and this is a very clever dedication
This new Greenland co-op module is dedicated to the Danish-Inuit resistance leaders who lost their lives fighting the Nazis after the fall of Greenland to the Germans in WW2. These freedom fighters were volunteers of a multi-cultural dog-sled team composed both of Danes and Inuits. Some lost their lives in battles, others to the elements after the Germans destroyed their supplies. Phil Eklund
@Ms.Mo I'm sorry if the name upset you. We wanted to do something clearly different from the standard game with he new co-op and solo versions. And we wanted it to follow in the tradition of being pivotal times. We have a good bit of text in the document explaining this chosen moment in history but in short 1940-44 very pivotal. It was both a time when Greenland was close to be completely invaded by the Nazi forces (which would have been very beneficial for the access to refined Aluminum for the Axis powers) and also ended up being the time that set Greenland on the path of becoming an independent country. We have found ways of implementing this into the existing cards in ways we are very pleased with and I hope you will find the co-op version as fun and interesting as we do.
Interesting update, looking forward to try those modes!
I was also surprised about the NAZIS, but... I don't see anything wrong
I mean N a Z-i
What the fuck!
Folks this is not why I supported this!
Great update, thanks!!
@Thomas Healy: If you send us (Sierra Madre Games) here via the contact function here on Kickstarter we can help you.
It might be far too late for this, but I was wondering if any change at all would be possible. The issue is not that I don’t want the games. I backed them as kind of a surprise for my wife (she didn’t expect I would back them when we heard about this campaign, and we both really like Eklund’s games so far). Well, she found a (signed!) copy of Neanderthal on a game exchange site and bought it for me for my nameday to surprise me. We won’t need another copy of the game, and I don’t want to upset or disappoint her when it comes. I still want Greenland and the gameboard, but Neanderthal is now already in our collection. Can anything be done? (I backed to get both Neanderthal and Greenland and added on the gameboard.)
@Dan Sattary: That is here on Kickstarter. We are not using an external survey or BackerKit.
@Dan Sattary: To get to the Survey click "View Pledge" and then "Survey".
Can I get a link to the backerkit survey please?
Everytime I click the link in the email it just takes me to the Kickstarter homepage...
@Flávio Merino: The possibility to add stuff through Sierra Madre Games' website will be only for the games from this kickstarter campaign shipping cost will be added for anything extra you order.
Is there any way that i can buy BiosMefagafauna 2 from Sierra Madre Games page and add the shipping to my kickstarter, so that i don t have to pay another shipping?
From personal experience, a second, fresh pair of eyes, with attention for detail, is always needed for this task. Mr Eklund is too close to the game in general and to the Living Rules in particular to easily notice all the oversights.
@Radu P: Thank you for noticing. We have forwarded your comment to Phil so that they can fix it.
I have taken a look at the Living Rules and I have noticed they still mention cubes in several place and Phil Eklund's original art on the original box at least once, in footnote 32. Will the rules get a thorough update before they are sent to the printer?
@Adam Jones: Kickstarter is not directly a pre-order service but a chance to help making a project creator, in this campaign Phil Eklund and Sierra Madre Games, to realise to make a dream or idea they have. Rewards are what Kickstarter call what you backers get in exchange for your support. That's somewhat why it's called reward and not just product.
So the "reward" for you helping us produce the new edition of Greenland is a copy of it, as you have pledged at that level. Thank you for your support.
So is the "reward" a free copy of Greenland?
I don't understand what the reward is...I doubt the reward is one copy of Greenland. But if the reward is I get one copy of Greenland for $29...is that really an award?
@Des: To get to the Survey click "View Pledge" and then "Survey". If you think you have filled in the wrong answer and want to send us the right information or just contact us click "View Pledge" and use "Message creator" to send your message to us.
Have you tried doing like it says here? "How can I view or change my survey responses?"https://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/backer+questions#faq_63017
I am unable to access the survey again to double check my entries.
@Arthur Some of me are dumber than others.
