Automatically Adding "Chemist" Expansion?!

So I want to do something crazy... If we can hit 1,000 backers by Wednesday night at midnight (CST), I'll immediately add the "Chemist" Expansion with your copies. AND, I'll shift all the remaining stretch goals down to it's current level! 

Why? ...  Why not, duh! 

I’ve been reading through and logging all the data for the new molecules in the Chemist Expansion that backers like a Prof at Westminister College and a freshman studying chemical engineering at Johns Hopkins university have collected. 

There's some pretty crazy ones, and some unknown in literature actually! My personal favorite molecular name is, N-hydroxymmethanecarbonimidoyl chloride

My indefatigable graphic designer is going to have quite a time fitting a molecule name like THAT on a card :) Not only was I having a blast reading through all the molecule names and feeling grateful for the backer enthusiasm, but we surpassed 300% of our funding goal! 

You all are SO AWESOME!!!

Oh and here's another media mention this week was from, Geek Dad! Check it out, comment and share some social media love! 

Overflowing with appreciation, 

John

      Idk... Not sure how to feel about this update. I mean, yea I'm all for expansions and stuff, but not at the expense of the creator. I think that's the beauty of kickstarter, and if we all shared a little more maybe we could get some of these goals knocked out without you putting so much of your own money in. Especially since according to what you said before, we're only just past the actual base funding of this game

      You're crazy.... But good crazy :)

      My brother almost has his PHD in Bio-Chemistry, was hoping to give this game to him as a late Christmas / Early grad / Just for the heck of it present. It's looking better by the day... and more crazy...

      @ Brian - I thought so too. And we're already almost 25% of the way there, since I posted the update :-)
