$1 - Boiler Stoker Backers

There have been several questions and Comments lately about $1 pledges and what prices will be offered during the PledgeManager which follows this Kickstarter. This Update attempts to address those questions:

1) First and foremost, if you pledge at the Engineer ($67) or Conductor ($79) Levels, you will be offered the same prices for the same items in the PledgeManager that you are pledging for in the Kickstarter.  That is, if you have pledged $79 for the base game + wooden trains (or $67 for just the base game) in the KS, you will be able to buy additional copies of the base game for $67 or the base game + wood trains for $79 during the PM. The free Stretch Goals are still free and included with any additional copies of the base game purchased in the PM if you have pledged during the KS at the Engineer or Conductor Pledge Level!

2) If you pledge only $1 during the KS, you will be offered the base game  (the "retail version" with an MSRP of $90) for $70. These copies will NOT include the unlocked Stretch Goal maps.

3) If you pledge only $1 during the KS, in the PM you will be offered each dual-sided 4 panel two map combo (France/Poland; or Hungary/Finland) for $15 each (these are the free Stretch Goals in the KS).

4) If you pledge only $1 during the KS, in the PM you will be offered the new three-map dual-sided map combo (NE/Switzerland/Pittsburgh), for $27.

5) If you pledge only $1 during the KS, in the PM you will be able to buy any of the 3 offered prior map combos of China/Mexico; Moon/Berlin or SA/SA for $15 each (if you are in the U.S.); and you will be able to buy the other Optional Buys shown on the KS such as more wooden locomotives, poker chips, Continental Divide and NE Railways, and lots of ROTW-related products, where available -- all at at discounted prices.

I hope this clarifies things for you. If not, please ask questions (as if I had to prompt you to do so :) -- Rick

      If I'm in a 67$ level pledge. Could I purchase a 79$ copy with all the stretch goals in pledgemanager?

      Great news :D Thx !

      Leon -- that's what we mean by "poker chips" in this Update.
      William-- the $27 maps will be sent to Philibert at the same time as and with the games they have ordered. So when Philibert ships out to its backers the $27 map will be shipped out at the same time.

      Thank you for this update. Just a question, in France we have Philibert who will have us the Deluxe and the wooden trains. So I stay on 1 dollar, I understand that we can get the map for 27 dollars with the 3 new maps, but is the sending of this map still in EU-Friendly?
      thank you so much
