Update #5

Three Cheers for Three New Tiers

2 comments

Greetings, Monday Racers! We're launching this post a day earlier than usual in light of the upcoming July 4th holiday in the USA.

We're wrapping up our second week, and we've made it over 2/3rds of the way to our first goal. Next week, we'll give you a look at what's involved in our Hollow Earth $50k stretch goal supplement, but this week we wanted to unveil three new reward tiers to help us reach ever higher!

First up, the new STALWART level includes that much-desired Century Club brass pin as well as an all-new second patch sporting the blue-and-gold Century Club logo. You'll get that, plus everything in the HERO package, for $60. All non-retailer tiers above $60 also get the new patch added to their reward set. You can get a peek at that patch here.

Fans of dice bags and dinosaurs will want to grab the MASTER OF DINOSAURS $99 reward tier while supplies last -- this folds in the MASTER OF FATE level, and adds a second dice bag from Dragon Chow based on our dinosaur-infested Dinocalypse art. Here's a look at the four-paneled fabric pattern currently in development.

And finally, for the racer who's crazy for bags, we have the ALL THE BAGS $199 reward tier. You'll get everything in MASTER OF DINOSAURS, and a custom embroidered canvas shoulder bag sporting the Race to Adventure logo. Grab this level and you'll have something to put your game and dice bags in... not to mention something to iron or sew your patches on.

The LEGEND and FLYING ACE levels will get the MASTER OF DINOSAURS dice bag and the ALL THE BAGS shoulder bag as well.

In light of these additions, we'll also be revising the $75k stretch goal to "add a brass pin for everyone at $25 and above." That means that if we hit that goal, any tier already getting one pin will receive a second one.

We're confident we'll reach our $40k project goal and strive for the goals beyond! Our trending could be better, but every bit of support you can drum up for us will help with that -- in fact, we've made a printable flyer for you to circulate in game shops and play groups in your area, with convenient QR codes for our kickstarter and tutorial video. 

Thanks to all for your support, and a special thanks to those still working to get the word out -- like fellow backer and impromptu demo-monkey Daniel Hutchison, who's already brought new backers, including a local game store, on board.

Together, we will win this Race! 

Onward!
