Have a question?
Right. wellt hat's good for those wanting it! :)
It only affected 34 people and I am offering them some restitution. Some of them did not actually want it (it was added automatically) which is why I am reaching out. This means a few more copies will open up.
The shipping error. I mean the cool thing to do would be let it fly, but then they are eating huge international delivery charges (which is most likely far more than the game itself)
@soljah nothing needs to be changed... What's with the oh no?
Is that something that can even be changed after locking in everything?
@Adam thank you for confirming! It is funny, I usually read manual, watch reviews and then decide if i want to buy the game or not. That's what I did with Treasure Mountain. But Dragon Brew was something I first time bought in blind, I just trust August Games, am sure it will be an awesome game and I will not be disappointed. Cant wait to play both.
@Lukasz. the ding and dent is the same exact game as dragon brew non ding, minus the 4 player race expansion which it looks like you got. so it should be exactly the same.
It is probably my fault, I confused you :-) I must have missed "NON" before Ding and Dent, sorry.
Probably it was long gone when i tried to buy. Btw, Ding and Dent means that only box is affected right? All in the box is same as a regular version?
@Lukasz- Woops.. you are right. You ordered one ding and dent. Sorry. It only affected non ding and dent people.
Did I? On my confirmation I see :
- Dragon Brew race exp
- Dragon Brew Ding and Dent
- metal coins
Plus normal reward.
How come I got two copies of Dragon Brew? I wanted only one and as I recall i could only choose Ding and Dent version. There was no other Dragon Brew. That is why I didnt notice anything weird except very expensive shipping, but I understand it is because you are shipping from home.
Lukasz - It looks like you ordered one regular copy of Dragon Brew, one ding and dent copy of Dragon Brew, coins and the race exp pack. You were not charged the $60 for the regular copy of Dragon Brew.
Daniel, It seems I was charged correctly. 65$ for shipping in total.
So, I exported the shipment list this morning and found a Crowdox issue. It appears nobody was charged the $60 (plus non usa shipping) for the NON-DING and DENT copies of Dragon Brew. Did anybody who picked it up notice anything strange during the check out process?
@August Games that would be awesome!
@Soljah - Dragon Brew can be a heavy game and I wanted to make something fast and quick you could play in a bar.
@Micheal - i am going to extract the list this week since we are sold out. I am hoping sooner :)
Ding and dents should be sent out early july
When is the ding and dent games going to be sent?
find it fascinating you made a game from within your game. I did the same but my reasoning was to dumb it down a bit and make it more accessible/cost less to make :P
The game sounds awesome and fun ! Thank you August Games :)
Here is a draft of the Orctoberfest Rules - • https://www.dropbox.com/s/xrvfwfu8u8fuxi8/Orctoberfest%20Rulebook%20v1.0b.pdf…
@Solijah - This is actually a unique card game that takes the "creating brew" concept from Dragon Brew, and molds it into a fast paced card game. The theme is based around the Orc race in Dragon Brew. Rather than gathering resources first, you create the brew recipe combinations by playing one ore more cards from your hand. Each game takes about 10 minutes to play. It is very quick and easy to learn. We have had a blast playing it! I think you all will enjoy Orktoberfest. Perhaps ahead of the campaign, we'll post the rules online so you can all get a glimpse of it. The art is already done, and once again Mac has done an amazing job!
sounds great. Is the dragonbrew unique or have anything different to the current dragon brew game? Or more of a reprint?
Thanks. You would get a LOT of notice. It will be a small 16-day campaign in January or February with a VERY short turnaround. We will starter to ship 30 days after the close of the Dragon Brew Orctoberfest campaign (the printing will be done). Most likely it will be $25 + $5 shipping and there would be an "early bird" $20 + $5 shipping that only you guys will get the early announcement about. No promises - just thoughts.
I would love to be an "Insider".
I wouldn't mind an early bird jump on the new game.
yea typically there is an update posted on past kickstarters about their newer ones
You are right, @Michael, but I meant a week or two before they actually launch so we can be ready for the specific day. :)
@readytoplay considering they are already starting to give you notice 10 months in advance.... I am sure you will get plenty of time! 🙂
I would love to have a chance at an early pledge level for your upcoming game, but please give us plenty of advance notice. :)
would be a shame for those who couldn't get in though. Still wouldn't hurt. Even telling us about it gives us a lead :P
that sounds like a fair advantage! especially letting us know! above and beyond most other campaigns i have seen. there will be the few who are looking at the games for new listings that pop in! but good on them for being keeners!
Question for You All - We are going to be running a 16 day campaign for Dragon Brew Orctoberfest (Stand alone card game) in the Spring of 2019. Orctoberfest will be delivered within 60 days after the close of the kickstarter campaign as well. We were thinking of ways of offering you guys some "inside info" to get the jump on the game. We were thinking about offering an early bird pledge level with a discount while starting the campaign 4 hours before the announced time (but let you guys know the early time). Thoughts on that?
im sure your a swell guy too and you have a family aww thats nice :). and i do have a....decent head on my shoulder (_( . i just like to mess with people i always have its fun, yeah sometimes i got accidentally hit back by my friends or hurt but i still do it. i can be nice and i am but im just used to youtube comments lol you know how those are. anyway you guys have a good day a great campain i had my fun of messing around and being a butt. XP
@7pain. The team at august has been great to me from the start of this campaign and accommodated me on a few things and have been doing all they can to run the best campaign on kickstarter. there is no need for the negativity. there is too much of that in the world today it doesn't need to be on here with these fantastic folks.
you have to EVOLVE! republishing is too easy :P
I would love to update and republish RKR - So many ideas
@Greg - I hopefully will be creating one with you lot. I am excited for sure. August games (the team) seems great and Daniels passion and kate's (or was is Katie...sorry?) patience for putting up with him is mesmerizing.
@7Pain - you seem like a swell guy. Perhaps if you had a level head you wouldn't have overlooked your own error in the pledge manager. Anyways, I don't need him to be polite. I have my own children and used to their sass ;)
Hopefully you learn from this and move on! Level up in the game world so to speak.
@7Pain - I offered you a personal wrapped copy of Dragon Brew from my house in order to bend over backwards make you happy for something that was no fault of our own. You ask me to hold onto it until you have the $ to pay and I agreed. Then I ask you to please be polite to other backers and you refuse because you don’t like him? I try my best to make everybody happy. However, you sir are trying my patience. I would prefer we don’t have that negative tone in this campaign. If you honestly feel you can’t offer me civility in return for my efforts, perhaps a refund may be the best course of action for you. Please let me know. Daniel
@soljah Dan has been making games for YEARS. There are so many more fun things coming. I love road kill rally :)
for that guy.....nah i dont care about him. lol
@7Pain - There is no need for the "%& you too then" to Soljah. Please be polite.
@Soljah - that was over 10 years ago. Funny. We still play it annually.
@soljah yes i wanted dragon brew and saw that the creators made this so i hoped on to get the game if they provided it and well they did and im happy. oh and on your first comment after august. -> well f%& you too then
I just realized you guys made road kill rally o.o
It's in my closet but haven't played it more than a couple times. small world.
pay it forward*
@7pain. unless you payed for it...it wouldn't have saved your "ding copy" in cart. I don't think that's how any backerkit/pledge manager works. Once you lock in the total...you lock in the extras. The dragon brew was gone in literally 1 day.
I will say it's a little silly to request a refund on a board game because you didn't get their optional OTHER game...unless you only backed at $1 or something, even then requesting a refund is rather ludicrous.
Luckily for you August Games are mad cool people, and looks like they are hooking you up. I suggest you pay that kind of gracious treatment to someone else when you can. I get you are frustrated... but you didn't lock in, this was COMPLETELY your fault and no one elses. Consider yourself very lucky this day :)
@7pain - I have a few ding and dent copies at home (unopened). Private message me and we can work something out - Daniel
@Michael - Thanks for the kind words. We don’t want anybody to be disappointed.
