About

....TARIFF MONSTER  EDITIONNNNNNNN!  We're going to Washington on July 24th to fight the tariff monster for crowd-funded board games like ourselves and this great community!  We're also trying to raise money for ourselves through this campaign to pay our own surprise taxes.  

YOU can help us tremendously by following and supporting this campaign, and you can keep up with our road trip to Washington.  War for Indagar is currently in-fulfillment and guaranteed to deliver.  Every new backer we get for the game goes a mile in helping us out with costs while we are spending our time fighting the tariff monster!

Roaming the shattered lands around the ruins of Konagara, the twisted monsters of Indagar have only one goal: destruction. Warped during the Cataclysm, bodies twisted and mutated by the massive infusion of Spirits, they each have their own grotesqueries and magical abilities.  

60mm+ scale, high-detail resin sculptures!
60mm+ scale, high-detail resin sculptures!

These are the prime monsters found in War for Indagar who wreak havoc on players, dramatically changing the strategy of the game, and can even win it all for themselves!  These four beautiful, high-quality, miniatures are large scale, 60+mm, and they will be manufactured by our professional miniature casting partner in high-detail resin for this campaign only.  These monsters will replace the 4 monster chits in the original game box, giving your monsters a towering, menacing, and life-like appeal on the game table.  They are an awesome upgrade to your War for Indagar box, and even stand alone as just amazingly badass models.  Backing these miniatures will also help us cover some of our tariff costs to boot!

If you didn't get to order the full game before, now's your chance! This will ship at the same time as our original campaign - we're selling our surplus to cover the tariffs; bad for us, good for you!

War for Indagar is a fast-paced, 4x strategy game that includes four distinct factions for 1-4 players, along with an engaging AI. Players select powerful heroes to represent their armies, choose unique strategies to tailor their gameplay, and use spells and abilities to gain control over the battlefield and — ultimately — the Spirit Well at its center.

There we are! Scheduled for Monday June 24th!

The Pledges

War for Indagar Game has been manufactured and is currently in transit to the US, hence the need to deal with the tariffs!  Boxes will be shipped out at the same time as boxes for the original backers, coming from Quarter Master in Florida.  

For the Monsters, we will be manufacturing them on demand via Nuclear Shrimp Games in Greece, receiving them in the US, assembling them, and then shipping them directly from us to you.

Shipping

For shipping, we try to be as economical and fair as possible.  There are two different products you should consider:

1) The Game

For the game, as stated, it is already inbound via ship to the US.  EU backers from the previous campaign were shipped directly to the UK for distribution and have already set sail so cannot be added to.  Therefore, we have the following:  

For US:  Shipping will come from Quarter Master in Florida, and we expect about $15-$20.

For EU:  Customs friendly.  Cost of shipping is directly related to the number of cases we send (going down significantly as the number of cases goes up). $31 - $45 depend on volume.  

For Rest of the World:  We will ship gladly from the US to you, but it will be very expensive and not customs friendly. Expect large numbers anywhere from $60-$90, or higher.  Wish we could do better, but there are no viable options to us. 

2)  The Monsters

The monsters are produced by Nuclear Shrimp Games in Greece.  This opens up potential options for shipping to the EU.  We can have options for shipping the miniatures directly from Greece to avoid VAT and international costs, but the monsters will come unassembled.

For US:  Monsters will come assembled   Estimate is $8 - $12.

For EU:

Option 1)  Receive assembled.  This will come from the US via USPS Flat Rate international. Expect ~$35 for shipment.  This will not be customs friendly (meaning VAT will be due upon receipt, expect about $7).

Option 2) Ship from Greece.  Receive un-assembled.  No VAT and normal parcel shipping rates apply.  We expect around $8-$15.

For Rest of the World:

We will ship via USPS Flat Rate international.  This price can fluctuate wildly from as low as $27 (CAN, MEX) to as high as $80+.  This will not be customs friendly, meaning duties are due upon receipt.  You can estimate from your country via the USPS calculator for Flat Rate Small Box International.  (e.g. Most of EU is $36, AUS is $37,  CAN is about $27, etc.)

Translations

Translated rules and cards for our game will exist on our website for French, German, and Spanish, free to download and print. 

The Story of Tariffs

To fully describe the Tariff issue and why this campaign exists:

Tariffs are taxes placed on goods at the time of import.  The US government is instituting a 25% tax on all goods imported from China.  Since our game was manufactured in China, this will apply to us.  These tariffs are NEW, meaning we had no way of anticipating them, and especially, at the time of our original campaign (October 2018), no one was expecting a serious trade war between the US and China.

With the money we raised from the original campaign, we funded the manufacture of War for Indagar.  Payment in full for the manufacturing process was made almost 2 months ago at the time of this writing, and the games are done.  There is no way for us to cancel or refund the project in light of the new 25% cost overrun to be caused by these tariffs.

Therefore, we are proverbially stuck between a rock and a hard place.  We can't refund or get our money back.  We can't cancel.  We want to exist in the future in good standing with our backers, meaning we won't simply pass the cost onto our backers whom we've already promised we would deliver at the cost we declared in 2018.  We, therefore, need to raise capital!

Many campaigns are handling this differently, and there are so many variables that go into the best choice for creator as to how to handle these tariffs.  The biggest factor for us is that we are a true, crowd-funding, success story, meaning we are so tiny we have no distributor options, retail options, or a bank account with cash in it to absorb extra costs Upon reviewing all the myriad options, for a tiny, crowd-funded company such as ourselves, we believe this campaign is the best choice to help us do right by this wonderful Kickstarter community.

Thanks for your support!  It is much appreciated!

Risks and challenges

Risk on this project is extremely low, almost non-existent. This is because:

1) The Game Boxes are already manufactured and are on a boat to the US as this campaign is ongoing. Thus, the only thing that would prevent delivery at this point is if the boat sank, or a warehouse caught on fire, or some other similar type disaster.

2) The Monsters are produced via ad hoc order from Nuclear Shrimp Games who have been amazing with our miniatures in the past. They will produce orders on demand, meaning no required minimums or other upfront costs. Thus, since each order is made on demand, there is no risk that they will not be made or delivered outside of un-foreseeable disaster. Even in the event of such an un-foreseeable disaster, payment is made upon completion, so we could always refund. The worst that realistically could happen is your miniatures are somehow damaged in transit, and as such, we would handle this on a case by case basis up to re-shipping or a refund.
