      @ Rachel, the games and the rewards are shipping out separately! The games are currently on their way to our warehouses, where they'll be shipped out to backers. We will send notifications to all of our backers once we have confirmation that the games have been shipped out.

      @ Amanda, apologies for the trouble! Your order has not yet been shipped. We've messaged you directly so we can sort this out!

      Hi, I received my postcards but I am missing my game....

      When I answered my survey from Backerit, I changed my shipping address as I had just recently moved house. As an email has just gone round to say that shipping is underway, I bought I’d double check the address and it appears not to have updated on Backerit to my new one. Is there any way to check if his has already been shipped and is going to the right place?

    4. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ Mercurius, according to our records, you added an additional copy of the base deck through Backerkit, so that's where that charge comes from. If this is an error or you'd like to remove that add-on from your order, message us privately here or email us at and we will work it out. Thanks!

      @ Thomas & Ebola Bear, we're happy to hear your postcards arrived safely, and we hope you enjoy them!

    5. Mercurius on

      I just noticed that on July 30th, I have a charge from Gather Round Games for $26 on my credit card. I looked up the vendor, and it pointed me to Someone Has Died. Considering the Kickstarter completed several months ago, I'm trying to figure out what exactly happened that created a separate charge on my credit card?

    6. Thomas Farnell on

      my postcards just arrived too

    7. Ebola Bear on

      Got the postcards, just waiting on the game ^_^

      @Prapti we're excited to hear!! We're nearing the end of production, so if all goes according to plan, shipments should go out in August! Once the physical copies are sent out, we'll be sending out the print and play to backers.

    11. aylaeh on

      Excellent! Thanks!

    12. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ aylaeh, you can review and update your survey through Backerkit!

      You can access you BackerKit survey by inputting your email at

    13. aylaeh on

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

    14. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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?

    16. Gather Round Games Creator on

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

    17. Silly Grammie

      June seems soooooo far away doesn't it?? Never have I been so anxious to play a game; I can't wait!

    18. Giulio Garau

      so MUCH love! <3

    19. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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!

    20. Giulio Garau

      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?

    21. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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!

    22. Sylvia on

      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 :)

    24. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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?

    28. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ Mattministrator, thank you! :D To answer your question, we just posted a new update!

      Mattministrator on

      Congratulations on your successful Kickstarter! Any news so far? A timeline, even? ;-)

    30. Connarhea on

      Oh and congrats of course :)

    31. Connarhea on

      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)?

      Collin Blank on

      Someone has died is live?! I can't handle this roller coaster of emotions!

    33. Cris Zehil

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

    34. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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

      @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.

      Phil C

      Congrats guys. Looking forward to this. Just sad we didn't get the handbook. :(

    37. Missing avatar

      Phil C

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

    38. Missing avatar

      meh on



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

    39. Bravely Told Games on

      Congrats Gather Round Games! Well done!!!

    40. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @ 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.

    41. Hound of Tindalos

      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

    42. Missing avatar

      meh on

      Final hours left, did the creators die?!

    43. Missing avatar

      meh on

      Is NSFW a stretch goal or expansion?

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

    44. Missing avatar

      Yatto Leung on

      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.

    45. Oregon Amy on

      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.

    46. Jean-Yves Steenhout on

      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)?

    47. Jean-Yves Steenhout on

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

    48. Jean-Yves Steenhout on


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


    49. Gather Round Games Creator on

      @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 page available to all. :)

      Mattministrator on

      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!
