Ahoy!! Rainbow Boats Set Sail! ALSO - Stretch Goal Clarification!

Posted by Ray Wehrs (Creator)

Good day, backers!

We are still in awe at how wonderful you all are for getting us to $100k...and beyond!

Here's the thing - we are smashing every ceiling as we rise with this project, and we are contemplating stretch goals we never thought possible.  Ready for more??

Rainbow Boats!!

Check out the first ever alternate set of rainbow ships for Tsuro of the Seas!  

The Daikaiju will be sure to see your ship now!! ( that a GOOD thing???)
The Daikaiju will be sure to see your ship now!! ( that a GOOD thing???)

We will unlock these like we did the rainbow Tsuro stones - every $5000 starting at $105,000!   Each backer at the Standard Retail Edition, Kickstarter Exclusive Set, Legacy of Tsuro, or Way of the Retailer pledge levels will receive these along with all other unlocked stretch goals when Tsuro: Phoenix Rising is fulfilled!  

Stretch Goal Clarification

We originally were going to make stretch goals one per backer - meaning that if you added an extra copy of the game with your pledge, you still would only get one set of stretch goal stuff.  Well, forget that noise!!

Based on some compelling comments by backers here on the page, we had some internal discussions and have decided that if you pledge at the Standard Retail Edition, Kickstarter Exclusive Set, Legacy of Tsuro, or Way of the Retailer levels, you will get a full set of the stretch goal items with every copy of Tsuro: Phoenix Rising you are getting.  That means you can put together group pledges and everyone will get the bonus stuff, and that retailers will get a set of stretch goals with every copy of the game, so customers can enjoy them!

We hope this is a positive step!  More stuff for more people!!


Well, that's all for now!  Please spread the word - let's build a rainbow armada!!!

      (Should have said any *more* stretch goals. Sorry! :) )

      @Mitch - We have no room - either in its production cost or in the physical box - for any stretch goals for Tsuro: Phoenix Rising. So the options were either to have no stretch goals, or to celebrate the series as a whole - since it has been around since 2004. We chose to go with some unique items for longtime fans of the series that were either never available before, or hard to get. These stretch goals are financially feasible and make for an enhanced experience.

      I dont get why we are getting stretch goals unrelated to the game thats being released.

      Sorry, Cindy. There may have been a bit of a glitch in the wording of that email.

      EVERY COPY OF THE GAME will get the stretch goals:

      - 8 rainbow Tsuro pawns
      - Alternate Dragon/Phoenix tile
      - Phoenix tile for Tsuro of the Seas
      - Access to the Calliope Games Anniversary Party in Indy
      - All rainbow boats we unlock

      ADDITIONALLY, people who pledge for the KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE SET or LEGACY OF TSURO will receive:

      -Exclusive 8 Phoenix pawns in rainbow colors
      -Exclusive custom PVC tray
      -Exclusive “Twilight Portal” expansion tiles

      These three bonus items do not come with the Standard Retail Set.

      Sorry for any confusion!

      Quick question… I got an email about Phoenix Rising being live now and it appears that everyone that purchased the Standard Retail version will be getting everything that was purchased in the KickStarter Exclusive version… Am I correct? TY
