      How can I check what address I put on my survey? I'm moving soon and may need to update this information.

      @ Jason, just messaged you about your survey!

      I don’t remember doing a survey for this and when I put in my email on backerkit for it, nothing comes up. It says I’m a backer still though. Am I good or do I need to do something?

      @ Silly Grammie, we're excited for you to play it too!!

      @ Giulio, our limited number of expansion packs available as an add-on had sold out earlier today. However, due to the popularity, we've increased the number of expansion packs available as an add-on. We can't say for sure when they will sell out again, so we recommend ordering sooner rather than later! Thanks!

      Hi, about the nsfw expansion, about 5 hours ago it was available as add-on in the bakerkit survey, I couldn't finalize the order at that time and now the option is no more available, is there an issue or is no more available?

    11. Gather Round Games Creator on November 24

      @ Sylvia, we've fixed it so backers who are only receiving digital rewards aren't required to fill out a shipping address. Thank you for bringing that to our attention. If you run into any other issues please let us know!

    12. Sylvia on November 24

      I'm filling a backerkit survey and I'm so annoyed right now. I only backed for digital rewards and the page wants me to give out my shipping adress. Fix it as soon as possible, please.

      I'm really looking forward to trying this game! Not to rush you, but is there an time frame on when the print and play is going to be released for backers? Thanks :)

    14. Gather Round Games Creator on November 22

      @ Thomas, that's very sweet of you! Thank you so much!

      Really enjoyed playing this at Pax East. Will you guys be at Pax Unplugged?

      Oh and congrats of course :)

    21. Connarhea on October 13, 2017

      I am the same as @meh and didn't realise about the expansion. Is there a way I can upgrade to it or has that ship sailed(or died)?

      Too lazy to read it elsewhere, can you add the nsfw expansion later on?

    24. Gather Round Games Creator on October 12, 2017

      @ meh, we apologize for any confusion. We very much appreciate your support!

      @ Phil C, we're sad too, but we're also super excited that we get to produce our game at all for all of you! Thanks for your support!

      meh on October 12, 2017

      @phil Confusion was on my end from the different ways used to describe the ‘stretch goal’ ‘expansion’ ‘NSFW’ ‘dirty deck’.

      Expansion should have been the text used instead of dirty deck on the stretch goal graphic.

      They did say this. Repeatedly. And in the reward description. And in the FAQ. I'm not sure what else they could have done....

      meh on October 12, 2017

      @creator

      Congrats!

      I believe more would have pledged for $32 if they knew $22 wasn’t including the NSFW expansion (stretch goal)!

    29. Bravely Told Games on October 12, 2017

      Congrats Gather Round Games! Well done!!!

    30. Gather Round Games Creator on October 12, 2017

      @ meh, the $22 pledge comes with the expanded base deck but not the NSFW expansion pack. The NSFW expansion pack is included at the $32 pledge level.

      @ Yatto, the June 2018 delivery date is based on estimates we've received from our manufacturer and shipping partners.

      The creators died???? THEN I WANT THE WILL TO NAME ME THE EXECUTOR - I give everything to me.... waughhahahaahaha

      Likely they will come back from the dead.

      Now there is an expansion - the deceased comes back and clobbers everyone for fun

      Is NSFW a stretch goal or expansion?

      Does the $22 pledge come with the stretch goals of more cards & NSFW?

      Yatto Leung on October 10, 2017

      This game looks fun...but is the estimated delivery time really in June, 2018?
      It's awfully long time to produce the card game and ship it out.

    35. Oregon Amy on October 9, 2017

      I love the quirky slightly twisted edge to this game! I’ve been lurking, and now finally backing. As a bonus, I really love that I can support a group of female game developers! Thanks for this campaign.

    36. Jean-Yves Steenhout on October 8, 2017

      Any chance we can purchase the NSFW deck in PnP as an addon? Or will there be no other option than the 38 USD version to get the expansion (incl shipping)?

    37. Jean-Yves Steenhout on October 8, 2017

      Never mind, this is clear from the FAQ. Sorry!

    38. Jean-Yves Steenhout on October 8, 2017

      Hi,

      Ok thats clear. Is the join ownership package with one or two expansion NSFW packs?

      JY

    39. Gather Round Games Creator on October 8, 2017

      @Mattministrator - Thanks for your comment. We're glad your so psyched to get your hands on the game. We do not plan on releasing the print n play before the physical game, so everyone should get access at the same time. That being said, if you just CAN'T wait, we have a prototype PNP on our itch.io page available to all. :)

      Mattministrator on October 6, 2017

      Wouldn‘t it be possible to allow backers of higher tiers access to the PnP files as well? This seems to have worked well in the (excellent) Santorini campaign and us “higher-level backers“ would have no reason to bemoan getting the game later than others. That aside, thanks for taking a really fun concept and turning it into reality!

    41. Gather Round Games Creator on October 6, 2017

      @Jean-Yves The expansion pack will NOT be included in the PnP. I'm going to add this to our FAQ section as it is unclear and we've gotten this question several times. As for the shipping, it is listed when you select "rest of the world" as your shipping option. We've kept it as low as possible!

      Thanks for your support!

    42. Jean-Yves Steenhout on October 6, 2017

      Hello,

      Sorry if it's been asked before but it wasn't clear for me from the comments below: is the expansion included in the pnp version? I know you mentioned it's in the pledges of 32 and above, but I'm not sure if that means that it is not included in the PnP. I live in Europe and I'm a bit afraid of shipping so was thinking of getting the PnP only but the expansion sounds like fun.

    43. Gather Round Games Creator on October 2, 2017

      @Muel - Hey! Thanks for your question. I don't think we will be releasing the PnP before the physical game, as it wouldn't be fair to those who invested in the physical product. However, if you'd like, we have a PNP of our prototype available on itch.io!

    44. Muel on October 2, 2017

      I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered already. When will the final P n P version be available to those who back that tier? I know it says next year but was wondering if it might be sooner. :)

    45. Gather Round Games Creator on October 2, 2017

      @Alex d'awwww thank you!

    46. 2Huskies on October 1, 2017

      Adi, Liz, and Ellie, I am amazed by your story coming together to create this wonderful game that started off as a school project. Sometimes you don't know how far you can go with a dream or idea, but you are taking every pursuit to ensure its success, and your passion and efforts are really shining through! Congratulations on this enormously successful project, and I look forward to your continued success with the remainder of this campaign and onward!

      Yes it is i agree it loses a lot of the kickstarter excitement if there is nothing to shoot for. New cards anything really would be cool

      wait are there no more stretch goals? thats unfortunate

    50. Gather Round Games Creator on September 29, 2017

      @Carissa Yes! One copy of the expansion pack will be provided with every pledge at or over $32. So that's including the SYMPATHY PACKAGE tier!
