Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator on December 2, 2012.
We're shutting down no later than 5:00 pm CST today. We'll change the things you have asked us to change in the next few months and we'll be back with a better presentation for you early next year. Given the interest that has been generated in this product, we expect that the next time we'll fund just as fast and begin reaching our stretch goals. This time we'll make sure you know exactly what you're getting when you pledge, we'll make far more things available at the beginning and we'll change our stretch goals to be much more traditional.
Anyone who is pledged to this current kickstarter at ANY amount will be considered a pioneer in our next pledge and we'll do some special things for them. By pledging even a dollar, you'll also make sure to be contactable by us so we can keep you in the loop as we proceed. There is no reason at this point to increase your pledge or pledge a lot. If you want to be a pioneer and stay in contact, just pledge the minimum to stay in the loop.
Our understanding is that we are able to post updates to a closed kickstarter so we'll continue to do so. But we'll also post on facebook and send you e-mails to let you know what's going on.
One of our main objectives when designing Castle! was to allow gamers to build up, to stack. But, perhaps even more importantly, we also wanted to make Castle! easily unstack for gaming access. We love pretty buildings on the tabletop but too often we found that we played around them because of their unusable interiors. We solved this problem with a half-smooth peg that allows you to pick up entire levels of buildings to play inside, just like we always wanted.
This new video illustrates how stacking and unstacking is achieved with the Castle! modular construction system:
