    Hard Copy + PDF - At Cost Global Option

    You get the full color PDF and, additionally, you get a coupon to purchase the POD book at cost. (That way the shipping costs are determined by where you are, instead of being based on where I am.) While this may look cheaper than buying the book, in the US I believe it's basically a wash. Elsewhere, it's the only way to manage shipping uncertainties.

    You also get one of the limited edition "Spruce Goose" patches from season one of the podcast. It's small enough we can mail it globally. Note that the added shipping costs are for the patch ONLY!

    POD Color Copy At Cost

    OK, if you really want a tangible, print book with full color interiors, this is the way you get one. You pay us twenty bucks, and then you get a code to purchase the print-on-demand color book at cost. Current estimate is, that would be about $17 US, plus shipping and handling to wherever you are. It's not cheap, you pay twice... but it's the full color option.

    Hard Copy + PDF + AN ANSWER (Global)

    You get the full color PDF and, additionally, you get a coupon to purchase the POD book at cost. (That way the shipping costs are determined by where you are, instead of being based on where I am.) While this may look cheaper than buying the book, in the US I believe it's basically a wash. Elsewhere, it's the only way to manage shipping uncertainties. In addition, with this tier, you get to ask the game's designer for advice via email and get an answer within three days (probably sooner!) You can ask about TERMINATION SHOCK, about gaming, or about anything you think a hermit-like American man in his late forties would have insight about.

You also get drawn in to one of the illustrations in the book itself! You may be pictured giving a speech or having an alien spit on you, or something else entirely. Exciting!
    Naturally, at this level of investment we'll send you one of those Spruce Goose patches on our dime, even if we don't draw an alien spitting on you.
