Have a question?
Terence, no problem, it´s my first kickstarter, too.
I saw in my kickstarter menue that I can ask the backers for the delivery address. I will do that in some months, when the shipment is coming closer.
Perhaps a silly question - but this is the first Kickstarter I have backed. Where do we provide our shipping address? Also, very happy the larger board made it in and the project was a success.
Thank you for your congratulations and especially for your support. Now the work starts.
@Michelle, there's no pledge manager, but franjos might be able to help you out.
Thought I would get notice of this project ending so I could bump up my $1 pledge. Will I be able to do that in pledge manager?
Congrats on funding!
Congrats and thank you!
Congrats on a successful campaign and wished that we reached all the SG.
Hurray! Woke up to see we unlocked the larger board! Woohoo!
@Shanda: Thank you
@Mohammed: It would be possible to lower the goal from 45.000 Euro to 40.000 Euro for the wooden donkeys stretch-goal.
@franjos: congratulations on making the larger board happen. That is an amazing thing that you worked out to bring another SG to this project.
@franjos: thanks for changing the SG for the larger board to 30K. Only 13.5K to get these wooden donkeys carts SG in less than 6 hrs.
@Mark: I did so (Group deal for USA and others, 6 copies
Group deal for USA and others, 7 copies).
@franjos, could you please put in another pledge level for 6 copies to Canada for 228 Euros?
It's possible I may find a 7th person as well, if you'd like to also include a pledge level at 266 Euros, in case I need to use it, and it's not much trouble to add. Thank-you.
Hello, What is the interest of this campaign? Is there any ks exclus ?
I am another vote for a sturdier board.
Or (if that doesn't work out) a high resolution. Pdf of the board so that gamers willing to pay for one could have a mouse pad material playmat printed up. Those are costly and require separate storage from the game but I do it for games I really like.
Am i the only one that would actually prefer a smaller board?
@Shanda: Thank you for your hint. Yes, the weight will increase, but it will be below 2 kg. So it should be still okay.
Seems like the larger box size plus the larger punchboards could really increase the shipping costs for you and kind of bite you on the backside. I advise caution lots of caution as shipping and fullfilment can be a dangerous and costly problem for campaigns.
Larger board: the board would be double folded. Only the height of the box would increase (would be the size like "Paläste von Carrara"). With a larger board the windmill blades and fruit tiles would become larger too. So there would be 5 punching tableaus instead of 4 in the original game. Plus one punching tableau with the El Razul expansion.
It is great to see a bit of an uptick in pledges since we hit the 48 hour reminder. If the larger board SG was at 30,000 Euro instead of 35,000 Euro it would definitely be an exciting ride to the end of the campaign. As it is I am happy with getting the game and the one SG and I am also happy that more people are backing these last 2 days just so that a there are more copies of Finca getting out there.
I’ll echo John Gaul’s comment regarding the board. Would rather be a good quality board than simply a larger flimsy one. I’ve read so many comments on BGG regarding the poor quality boards for Black Orchestra and would be disappointed with a similar product. That said, a larger good quality board is nice for those of us older folks whose vision isn’t what it used to be.
I do NOT want Finca to be a micro game. I for one would love the larger board and I have a ton of games. I am not worried about shelf space. :-)
I think Finca would make a great micro game. A small format couple also help with shipping. I also have good eyes, nimble fingers and limited shelf space.
+1 for small board and think cardboard.
@Dusan: You are right. I thought I was able to change the EU only pledge and delete/change Germany. But this was not possible. I hope that German backers will use the right pledge.
Thank you, franjos, for doing this.
On the subject of stretch goals of bigger boards and wooden donkeys, my vote would be to keep the board the original size and focus on usability (stacking) for the donkeys. For this game, a bigger board wouldn't help playability much. Us board gamers have so many games we prefer if they take up as little shelf space as possible :) Personally, I would prefer higher quality cardboard tokens and board.
It is strange that if you select Pledge 33 EUR or more for Finca one copy (First option) you will be charged additional 19 EUR for shipping for all countries except for Germany for which is 6 EUR, and if you select Pledge 33 EUR or more for Finca one copy (EU only) you will be charged 15 EUR for all countries including Germany?!
I don't understand why more people aren't backing this, it's such a fun game!
I was also cheering for the bigger board, and a small, very selfish part of me is hoping we get it regardless :D
I'm really happy we get the mini expansion though! Can't wait to try it.
The larger board is still possible, even if the stretch goal is not reached. I have some demand from retailers outside the campaign. Together with this demand it is still possible.
Concerning the wooden donkeys: I am waiting for an offer of the manufacturer. If it is not to expensive may be I could add them. But I don´t want to promise to much at the moment.
Congrats on the expansion stretch goal. I was looking for the wooden donkeys and the larger board but seems far fetched idea at this stage and pace, but still there is hope and might be reached with the 48hrs reminders.
@franjos: As I understand from your last update that the larger board idea is still not dismissed at all (even with the goal is not reached). Can you confirm? Will there anyway t get the wooden donkeys (like an add-on if the goal is not reached).
Was waiting in hope for the bigger board; it doesn’t look likely in next few days though given the current pace. Game looks awesome though so I have backed regardless.
Woot woot on the mini expansion being unlocked. I would like to see the larger board too but I won't lose sleep over it if we don't hit that stretch goal.
Hurray! El Razul is unlocked!
@Robson Ferreira Puert: Hi, I added Brazil to the "Group deal Australia + others, 5 copies". So you have the chance for a Brazil group deal.
There is a Portugese rules translation of the original FINCA-rules at BGG.
Hello @franjos ! I don't know if we have enough backers from Brazil to have a Brazilian Friendly shipping or Portuguese as an aditional language. But in any case i'm very happy with that campaign. Thank you very much for making this happen.
@franjos: Thank-you. If necessary, I'll send a request for a specific pledge level closer to the end date of the campaign.
@Mark: it is possible to add additional copies for the average price of the lower quantity. Example: if 5 copies are 190 Euro, the average price is 38 Euro. You can add another 4 copies of 38 each. If you have 10 copies for 370 Euro, the average price is 37 Euro. You can another 4 copies of 37 Euro each. For I will not use a pledge manager I would have to add a new pledge for the quantity you need.
@franjos is it possible to order between 5-10 copies at the reduced shipping rate, or are the quantities locked to 5, 10 and 15 copies?
@franjos I applaud the change in artwork for improved readability. I liked how the original tile shape locked together when lining up collections of 1-6.
Really stoked to see this getting a reprint. Looking forward to getting a chance to play the legend.
I am good with the update to the tiles. It respects the original with a eye to make for better game play. I am hoping we get the wooden donkey carts, thats the stretch goal I want.
The El Razul expansion is the most important to me too. I think we will make that stretch goal. I am not optimistic about making the stretch goal for the larger board. I would've liked the bigger board too.
It is not a stretch goal. This work has to be done either way. In my opinion it has a positive influence of the handling during gameplay. So it should be done in this new edition.
I like the fact that the artwork of the fruit tiles will be changed for better contrast with the board. I just hope that this stretch goal will be reached together with El Razul expansion.
It is a neat looking game. Too bad it doesn't appear to be attacking the attention it deserves.
Hi Shanda, thank you for your hint. I will include the information in an update.
At the moment I would say that a pledge manager is a bit like "to shoot sparrows with cannons" (what we say in Germany). But I have in mind that you are waiting for a solution. I promise there will be a solution til the end of the campaign so that you can add a copy of CAN´T STOP.
@franjos: I am not sure your poll about additional games from your line got much notice tucked into the comments. When I look at the poll there are only 2 participants including myself. If you want more exposure that poll really should go out in an update so all the backers have a chance to know about the potential to add-on games. I am eager myself to know about an add-on would be handled. For instance, if I want a copy of Can't Stop would I add 22 Euro to my existing pledge and then specify that in the survey after the campaign is over? or will there be a pledge manager after the campaign where I would add funds and pick additional games?
@franjos: Thank-you for the quick reply, much appreciated. I understand your position. Hopefully the number of backers will be sufficient for 'friendly' shipping by the time the Kickstarter is over. The best of luck to you, with your campaign!
