Kickstarter has given us a great new feature, allowing us to add a little extra to cover international shipping. Unfortunately, it doesn't distinguish North America from everywhere else. We're doing the best we can within the limits of the system, but if you're looking for the best price on shipping, you may have to wait and order the game after it is printed.
Oh, yeah. The stuff that belongs on the box. Deadwood is best with 2-6 players, but has rules and components for up to 8. We rate all of our games "12+" just to be safe (small parts, some of the jokes, etc). It takes about 60 minutes and it's got a mix of luck and strategy. Fore more details you can check out the free version at http://cheapass.com/freegames/deadwood.
Thanks to a famous TV show, a lot of people associate "Deadwood" with coarse language and inappropriate behavior. But we're not doing that. Deadwood Studios USA will be playable by all ages. Difficulty-wise it is probably a "12+" but content-wise, it's all-ages. If you can say "Cheapass Games" in your house, you're over the tallest hurdle.
No, the artwork on the box in the video is placeholder artwork, from clipart.com. We are hoping to get a sketch (and maybe even a final cover) before this campaign ends, but Phil is a busy guy. Take a look at Update #2 for some examples and links to Phil's artwork. it's really nice.
We think that the "retailer" level is best suited to campaigns that are printing to order, when there will be no other way to get the final product. Deadwood will be printed in a full distribution-sized quantity, and will be available to retailers through the usual channels. If you're a retail store, you should be able to order Deadwood Studios through your distributor.
