Try messaging them, as they mentioned to @J. Brandon Massengill, and something may be worked out. I was able to add on the minis to the GSF Kickstarter late after I contacted them and worked out a PayPal transaction. Can't hurt to ask!
Very excited and can't wait to play. Way to go >G for being ahead of schedule. my last ks is about a year behind because of some financial issues.
Here's a question: For those of us who obsessively sleeve our games, how many cards are included in Flame of Freedom and Uprising? I know we get one extra per character, thanks to the promo back, but I couldn't find how many cards each character gets. I *think* I remember six being mentioned somewhere, but I couldn't re-confirm that. There are 15 characters, so assuming 7 cards per character, that's 105 cards. (Wow, that adds up!) I'm probably wrong on the number of cards per character. For size, it looks like the power cards are the standard 3.5" × 2.5" that Sentinels of the Multiverse uses. How big are the character panels? If they're 4" × 6" like the oversized Villain cards from SotM, I can use those sleeves for extra protection.
@Wazzull: On the right side of screen, just below the level you pledged at you should see Survey sent: X/XX/2014 • Your response. The "Your response" will be in blue and have a link. Click on this and it will bring you to the pledge manager. You cannot change your pledge, but can change the address you wish it to ship to here.
@ Trent Francis: I do not believe you can add to your pledge now as the pledge manager closed some time ago. With how quickly this was produced, I am sure you will be able to get the minis very soon. My guess would be around October.
Feeling a bit dumb. Where do I change my address?
@Alex Harrison: Good eye! That's exactly what they are!
Ok, is there any way to add the mini's now? I backed at the $50 level because i did not have the funds at the time. I would love to bump that up to the $100 level now. Its probably too late :(
The possibility that I may have this with me for my trip to PAX Prime this year fills me with glee. GLEE. I will be the envy of the board game room.
It's been too long and too many Kickstarters.
I was concerned because what it says in my survey response doesn't match what I purchased and I didn't take the opportunity to use the special order text area. I pledged $380. That's $30 more that the $350 listed on the main page chart of all pledge levels. That was for an unpainted Add-On Pack to go with the $100 spent for the painted Add-On Pack.
I knew there was something dodgy about my pledge, but it took a while to sort out what it was. I see the Add-On Pack isn't mentioned in this update, so it shouldn't affect anything. I want Greater Than Games to be clear on what my order consists of.
That stuff looks sharp! So awesome to get something early for a change. Great Job >Games!
@Damien, split shipment of the painted minis was always the plan for domestic backers. Also the max pledge level was $250, so the email you have shows your total pledge, including the add-ons. To check your pledge for this ks, go to the homepage of this ks. Scroll down the list of pledge options until you find the one highlighted green with a note at the top of the pledge option that says "you selected". At the bottom of that pledge level you will see "your response", it's a link click it and it will take you to your survey you completed and there will be a link to edit your address.
How do I get to the pledge manager? The KS page doesn't show the pledge level I selected. I've got an email showing I selected the $380 pledge level of for the painted and unpainted models and I'm pretty sure I added on more to get the other unpainted that wasn't included at that level. The survey didn't reflect those choices. Where do I go to confirm? It's more important to know this now that a split in the shipments is happening.
This looks so great! I can't wait to play
Woot! I can't wait to get playing!
Man, after backing so many Kickstarters that have had production issues and significant delays, the idea of getting one this far ahead of schedule is completely fantastic! Even more excited now!
@ Timothy good call. A gameplay video with the real deal would be awesome to see!
Great news! I'm so happy to be a part of this project.
This is the first sentinels game I backed. My roomie played the others then got hooked got all the sentinels editions saw this and had to back. Can't wait to get this in. XD
>Games, I have been a fan and a customer from the start, and have never seen you put out anything less than quality products. This is the first kickstarter I've been a part of that will deliver AHEAD of schedule. Not to mention that you also have a TON of minis included, which usually means about a 6 month delay. Way to go, and I can't wait for your next KS project.
@Ian: If you're a backer of any level, you should automatically be getting Uprising.
@GTG so Uprising wont have any kind of insert?
I knew it was dumb. I now remember it was a stretch goal. *facepalm*
Dumb question alert: how/where do I order Uprising?
Will we be able to pick up at Pax Prime?
From picture #10 above, it looks as though the character tiles are double sided, with character bio/universe (multiverse?) information. I'm almost as excited about that and the comic-book pages in the scenario books as I am about this game. >G's games are amazing fun, but the amount of effort they put into the backstory and into each character makes them come alive in a way few other games do, especially ones not based on an established IP (like Marvel, Shadowrun, Resident Evil, etc.). They stand on their own with their own unique, individual, rich, and varied stories, and i can't wait to see the Multiverse after the time lapse.
I love to see a game play video now that you have the game in!
I was not expecting painted to be on this shipment, but am joping that the intial estimate of 3 months behind the game would still hold true. That would put me having my game with painted minis by December. Is that a reasonable expectation?
Not necessarily. That is an entirely separate development and production schedule, and it is way to early to estimate how that will proceed.
Great news!! Does that mean the add-on pack will be ahead of schedule as well?
Awesome news!! Getting a kick starter early is just unheard! Good job guys - looks great.
@Brandon no, nowhere near as interesting as that. Just a friend's house instead
@Kim Garnett - Switzerland?
So ... pretty ...
Yay and boo at the same time :-P Yay because ahead of schedule! and boo because I'm closing on a house around the end of this month. Changed address to a neutral location in the meantime and if you've not shipped by when we get the house I'll change the address yet again.
@Brian - The molded plastic insert does have a cut-out area just for holding the map tiles. They fit perfectly!
I am so excited now! Can't wait to save(or destroy) the multiverse!
Everything looks very impressive! One question, is there an inset for the larger hex tiles to fit into? Hard to tell on that last picture.
Whoa whoa whoa... A Kickstarter campaign that might not be late, not even on time, but actually EARLY?! This is unheard of, stupendous, excellent even. I was already excited for the game but now I'm really looking forward to it! Early = good = happy.
Fantastic, really good job guys
I'm gonna be greedy and ask for a video of this unboxing :)
Hoped for as a Christmas present, but it might be here by my son's birthday.
Awesome! So excited! :)
Awesome! Great news!
Great news! Good job, everyone involved in the process. I'm so happy for my (nearer) future self!
The games are being shipped from China to the US on a boat. The EU Kickstarter rewards will be shipped from the US to the EU on a plane.
Thanks, sorry don't want to sound picky but is that shipping by boat or plane? Just really excited by this reveal.
We will be packing all of the EU rewards here, and then shipping them to a single location in the EU for dispersal. We will pay customs duties and taxes on the import, and then, since they will be dispersed within the EU, there should be no further taxes and duties. At least, that is what we have been assured multiple times...
This container does not contain painted miniatures. They will still definitely be much later than the rest of the stuff, but how much later exactly has not been confirmed by the factory.
Excelsior! Can I ask how EU shipping is being handled
Yes, when can those of us who opted for painted figures expect our games? Very excited!
@J. Brandon Massengill - Shoot us a message via the messaging system and we'll see if we can figure something out for you.
