    We have sold an assortment of bumperstickers for this game for $2 each. As a backer, you can have as many as you like for $1 each. Pick this reward for just a bumper sticker or add $1 to another reward to add it. ALSO: a friend has produced a NUCLEAR WAR SPINNER app for android and apple (and ipad and etc) for 99 cents. When I send out the survey at the end of this kickstarter, if you tell me you purchased the spinner app, I will send you ONE MORE bumper sticker than you paid for!

    Retailer and Distributor reward: I'm not asking you to pay me for any games in advance. For your $10 you will get 10 promotional cards to sell or give away. And when I am ready to tell the printer how many copies to produce, I will call or email you and ask you how many copies you want. You will get your normal discount, and you don't have to pay until you get them. Also I will list your store on a special page on my website. This is only for retailers and distributors. I will check. (You can support for more than $10. For each extra dollar, you will get one more promo card.)

    THIS IS THE GAME FOR BACKERS IN CANADA ONLY. Kickstarter won't let me change the cost of postage, once we've started and someone from that country has already backed any level. So in order to charge Canadian customers only $13 postage, I am offering this $43 level without any postage added on. But you can ONLY select this option if I am shipping your game to Canada. You can still add more money for add-ons.

    People keep asking me to include a reward with "One of Everything". Unfortunately that would include WMD, and the Booster Packs, both of which are out of print right now. Well, I *DO* plan to reprint both of those. So how about this, for $140 you get the basic game in the fancy deluxe wooden box, Nuclear Escalation, Nuclear Proliferation, WMD, one each of all 47 of the "booster cards" (which, by the way, includes the 200 megaton warhead and the UFO technology), a glow in the dark misfunction die, and the 250 megaton card. And of course all the special cards that are created via this kickstarter. I will ship everything except the WMD and the booster cards as soon as we get the basic game printed, and then those two as soon as they are reprinted.

    Oh, what the heck. I've offered this sort of reward in previous kickstarters and no one took me up on it. For $1500 you get everything in the $600 reward PLUS I (Rick Loomis) will fly to your city on a mutually agreed upon date, delivering your goods to you, and will run a Nuclear War tournament for you and your friends. I'll even give away lots of cool prizes. It can't be during Origins or Gencon or Essen Spiel or Dundracon. If you'd rather have Doug Malewicki, we'll work on it. I can't promise he will be available. (But depending upon your location, he might). I'm not even going to put a limit on this selection, as I doubt anyone will pick it. If it is during a game convention of some kind, I'll give you lots of publicity.
