Playmat add-on, Cheaper international shipping & New stretch goals!
We have lots of big news in this update! First off, thanks to all our new backers - we are so glad to have your help making this game!
Read on for:
- a large playmat add-on
- cheaper international shipping
- a stretch goal update
As requested by many of you, we are pleased to be able to offer a premium oversized playmat for Rurik with edge stitching! The playmat will feature the same art on the game board, but is 20% larger.
To add the playmat, simply increase your pledge by $30. It will be shipped separately from the game in a playmat mailing box.
Free shipping to US, UK, China, Hong Kong and $5 shipping everywhere else.
Cheaper International Shipping
We heard your feedback - that international shipping was expensive - and found another reliable fulfillment partner to help reduce international shipping rates (along with PKG subsidizing even more of the shipping cost). Rewards are still EU friendly (no additional duties/VAT due upon receipt of game).
If you live outside of "Zone 0", you can switch your reward to "BOYAR (International)" or "PRINCE (International)" to save on shipping.
Please tell your friends about the reduced shipping rates!
Stretch Goal Update
Great job on unlocking the thicker game board (now premium thickness) and 8th leader! Yaroslav is still working on the 8th leader - we will unveil him soon!
Let's see what we can unlock next:
- At $87k, we will have Yaroslav illustrate a unique city illustration at the top of each player's household mat.
- At $91k, we will upgrade the game box to a premium thickness of 2.2 mm for greater durability.
- At $94k, we will add 15 goods tokens to increase replayability. You can place these randomly on top of the existing region good markers (that are printed on the game board) so goods are in different configurations.
- At $100k, we will add another plastic tray (and a lid) - this time to hold all the goods and coins in their own compartments! This will make set-up and tear-down easier, and make it easier to keep the resources separately during gameplay.
