    EARLY BETA ACCESS: For $10, you not only get the digital image from the previous tier, but you'll also get early beta access to our digital card deck (database of book cards) when it goes live, and your name listed on our website as an early supporter of the project. Not only will you be able to help us refine how The Game plays before launch, but you'll be able to start claiming your levels before any of your friends. Any pledge above $10 also earns an invitation to our celebration party, which will happen when The Game of Books launches (we'll likely have food, but you have to get here yourself).

    GIVE YOUR FAVORITE BOOK A BADGE!: Show your appreciation for a loved book by buying them a special, "Somebody Loves Me" badge! For every $10 you pledge to this reward, you receive 1 vote to cast towards any book you like. Doing so will forever earn it the "Somebody Loves Me" badge, making it more attractive to point hungry readers! The more votes a book has, the higher the point value its badge will be worth when The Game goes live. Pledge any amount on this reward, and at the end of campaign we'll send you an e-mail telling you how many votes you have and asking how you'd like to vote (I'm personally buying a badge for Gom on Windy Mountain by Grace Chetwin, which I loved growing up). As a special edition, this badge can only be earned by a book through this reward.

    Any pledge above $10 also earns all the rewards in the $5 category.

    PLAY THE GAME + GIVE YOUR FAVORITE BOOK A BADGE! (BY POPULAR DEMAND): This reward is identical to PLAY THE GAME, but also lets you give your favorite book a "Somebody Loves Me" badge! The rules for the badge are the same is the GIVE YOUR FAVORITE BOOK A BADGE! reward; for every $10 that you pledge above $13, you can give any book of your choosing in The Game a special badge. Books can only earn this badge through this reward in Kickstarter (not after we close). The more badges a book has, the more points a reader will earn by reading it, so feel free to give multiple badges, if you like.

    (AUTHORS ONLY) MAKE SURE YOUR BOOK HAS A GAME CARD: If you're an independent or self-published author, it's unlikely that we have you book already in the more than 100,000 titles in The Game already. We want to, though! But it will take a digital copy of your book and some time. This reward gives you the ability to guarantee that your book has a game card in The Game of Books at launch. If you can provide us with a digital copy of your book, we'll work with you to make sure it's included in The Game. That way, you know that your readers will earn points and badges from your book, either playing by themselves, or through a library or school. On top of that, your book will also receive a special, "Supportive Author" badge, as an extra bonus. You'll also get an invitation to our celebration party, listing on our website as an early supporter (as well), and the digital graphic described in earlier tiers.
