The Pledge Manager is FINALLY LIVE! Periodic Wooden Samples and We're Looking for a Spanish Translator...

Posted by John Coveyou (Genius Games) (Creator)

Hello backers,

First off... a quick shout-out for help...

Could you translate Science Behind Subatomic into Spanish?!

Anyone fluent in Spanish and English with a science background who'd be interested in translating the Science Behind Periodic booklet into Spanish?

If you're interested, and could make the translation pretty quick (within a week or so), please email shelley@geniusgames.org, subject line "Translate SBP - [your name]"!! 

Periodic Wooden Samples

Guess what arrived at our office?! Pre-Production Copy (PPC) samples of the wooden pieces in Periodic!!

Receiving these component samples is critical. It's great to get my hands on physical samples early on to make sure they are exactly as we'd like them to be.

I'm pretty thrilled with how the microscopes turned out :-)

Pledge Manager is Live   

We’ve teamed up with Crowd Ox to collect your address information in order to fulfill your rewards. The invite to the survey was sent to the email address linked to your Kickstarter. 

We'll keep the survey unlocked for as long as we can to minimize address changes, but if you are able to answer asap, that'd be extremely helpful!! 

A few Important Notes:

1. You can upgrade your pledge or add additional products to your pledge!

2. If you pledge at the BULK level and wanted Collector's Editions, you'll need to upgrade your Reward Level to the 1 Case of Collector's Edition!

3. If you would like to get Spanish editions of the games: Once you're in the "Reward" section of the survey, the only way you'll be able to get Spanish copies is to upgrade to a Reward Level that says "Español" by scrolling down a bit then selecting an "Español" pledge level. (see screen shot example below)

Overflowing with appreciation,

John

      @Kory It's looking like a closer estimate for locking down the PM is mid-February.

      @Kory We don't have an exact lock-down date for the PM yet. We'll leave it open for as long as we can so you all can modify your shipping addresses - likely it will be Spring 2019 when we lock it down. We'll make sure to give you all plenty of warning!

      How long is the PM open for?

      @Panzerpod We can work it out manually on our end in Crowd Ox for you!

      @Martin We very recently released the 2nd Edition of Cytosis, which has a reduced MSRP and does not include the Virus Expansion, but we didn't yet have the box cover when the Periodic campaign closed, so we just used the 1st Edition box. Sorry! Should have clarified that more thoroughly!

      @Pablo Our Spanish partner is not offering the Collector's Edition of Periodic, so there's no Spanish Collector's Ed, but there is an Español - 1 copy of the game. Hope that helps!

      Hi John, same problem here: there is no 'Español - 1 copy of the Collector's Edition' Level :(

      John,
      Thanks for your response. We'll send it to a forwarder, then.

      The box image of Cytosis in the Science Bundle on the campaign page says, "Virus expansion included." Is this something different from the boxed Virus expansion on your website?

      @John Coveyou . I am afraid that with my pledge (Collector's Edition Science Bundle), in the Reward section of the Crowdox pledge, I only have the option to "upgrade" to "$219 BULK PLDGE - COLLECTORS EDITION (6 Copies)... When I click on Confirm I got some questions before go to Step 2, Extras... asking for Country, if we want to give any extra details (there I asked for the Spanish version, as there is no other obvious place where I can say so), and a couple of survey questions)... Just to let you know. I will contact Shelley anyway to remind her about it. At the end, with the help of my wife we offered to help with the translation to Spanish of SBP ;-)

      @Delia @Preson Thanks!! We were pretty happy with how the sample components turned out :-)

      @Kory The Virus Expansion is separate from the Science Bundle.

      @David The PM is saying that your email marked their invitation as spam, so I send you your Crowd Ox link via a Kickstarter message!

      @Alexander The Spanish versions are available in the PM. Feel free to email shelley@geniusgames.org and we can get it sorted out for you!

      @Martin You're welcome to email to shelley@geniusgames.org and she'll get you the other PnPs! As for the Virus Expansion - it is separate from the Science Bundle. The English version of the Science Bundle does not ship to Chile, but the Spanish Science Bundle does. (However, the Spanish Science Bundle does not include Cytosis, because our Spanish partner is not currently offering a Spanish version of Cytosis)

      @Felipe @David That's odd - there is an "Español - 1 copy of the game" available! You should be able to switch to that level after going in at the "1 copy of the game" reward level. If the "Español - 1 copy of the game" isn't showing up for you for some reason, or you're not able to transition to a different pledge level as you hoped, shoot an email to shelley@geniusgames.org and we'll figure it out!

      @Panzerpod There is an Español Science Bundle level available! Feel free to email shelley@geniusgames.org and we'll work it out.

      We pledged for the PnP, and were hoping to be able to get the PnPs for the other games in the PM. After downloading it from update 8, I am overwhelmed at the prospect of trying to make all those tokens, and am considering just upgrading to the science bundle.

      Does the science bundle include the expansion for Cytosis? The game on your website appears to do so, but I'd like to be sure.

      How are you planning to ship this? USPS? DHL? DHL Express? Other? We're in Chile, and need to know whether to give you an address here (and which one) or a forwarder in the States.

      Can the science bundle include the other PnPs so we can already start playing, albeit with makeshift components?

      Very beautiful components. Completed the PM.

      This is likely a mistake on CrowdOx's end (he had mentioned some trouble with this), so I'm it will get fixed.

      There is no "Español - 1 copy of the game"... For the backers there is only the option to upgrade and acquire more games (in spanish too) but I'm only interested in "Periodic"... What can I do?

      Hi guys, there is no 'Español - 1 copy of the Collector's Edition' Level, disappointing. But even worse is that I cannot downgrade from my '1 copy of the Collector's Edition' level to the 'Español - 1 copy of the Game' Level.
      Please help. Specially because you said:
      " If you want a Spanish version of Periodic, you don't need to do anything now except become a backer at the reward level you want. Then after the campaign we will ask you if you want the English version, or the Spanish version (In the Pledge manager). "

      It seems that there is no option for the Science Bundle to get the Spanish versions. I asked for it in the comment section of my pledge (and mentioned that there is no option there for Spanish). Thanks in advance (and tempted to help with the translation... unfortunately I am very busy at the moment :-( ....)

      I have not received the invitation to the Pledge Manager survey yet.

      Is the Cytosis expansion included in the science bundle or does that need to be added?
