About

5 Stack is a chip stacking game with the perfect balance of strategy and chance. It is designed for 2-6 players and can be played by both young and old. Players score points by creating stacks of 5 or more chips by either moving chips on the board or rolling the dice to place new chips. 5 Stack is a relatively fast-paced game and rounds can be as fast as 3-4 minutes for the speed demons and 20 or more minutes for those that like to chat and "cut up" while playing board games.

5 Stack is a captivatingly simple to play board game. When we developed the concept for 5 Stack, I wanted to create a board game that was simple enough for our daughters to play and understand but also interesting enough that I could invite adult board game veterans over and still have a blast. 5 Stack achieves both perfectly.

At 5 Stack's core, lies a straightforward but interesting game mechanic that contains the perfect balance of strategy and chance. The strategy element creates a meaningful game-play for those that like to dive deep into a game and try to outsmart their opponents. There is also enough chance to make the game exciting and surprising, allowing for some unexpected twists and turns. This combination means winning can be up for grabs for even the "I never play board games" person.

Whether you are young or old, new to board games or a seasoned vet, you will have a blast playing 5 Stack.

*Plus Shipping

Calculating shipping is hard to during a project as we do not have your specific shipping info until the project has been successfully funded and ended. Additional shipping for any add-ons will be calculated after the project has been funded using a post Kickstarter pledge management system called Backerkit. At that time any additional shipping will be calculated based on your specific shipping address. It is hard to create a "one size fits all" shipping cost that fits everyone appropriately. Thank you for your understanding. 

 Final Game Board and Packaging may differ than featured in the video.

 Special thanks to my brother and Six Foot Five Productions for creating our awesome Kickstarter promotional video. Six Foot Five has created numerous Kickstarter videos for me in the past and does a stellar job every time!

Risks and challenges

With any Kickstarter project, there are always risks and challenges, especially because the final product has not been produced yet. This will be my 25th Kickstarter project, and I will do my best to be completely transparent about any aspect of the project. I have done my very best to represent the final product as accurately as possible but there is always a chance that the final product might vary slightly or substantially based on unforeseen production issues. While we do not foresee this happening, it is important to know this going into this project.

REFUND POLICY

We can refund you within 14 days of the campaign’s end, fees included. After that, we have a policy of no questions asked, though that’s minus Kickstarter and payment processing fees (which we can’t get back from them after 14 days). However, if we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 4 to 6 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. If a component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we refund that completely, including fees.

All refunds after the 14-day close of the campaign may be processed via Paypal or reversed via Stripe to your credit card at our discretion. Refunds within 14 days are reversed via Stripe to your credit card.

This project is being funded in USD and any refunds processed will be in USD for the exact amount received in USD, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By pledging to this project, you acknowledge that the final look, materials and content of the rewards (and the project) are subject to change and may differ substantially from what is presented while the Kickstarter project was active.

We will be using a post Kickstarter pledge management service called Backerkit. If you do not log in to Backerkit and confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email to confirm your pledge, you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after the 8-week window has elapsed. Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics and lead to project delays. For this project we do not intend to allow this to happen, which may mean if you confirm your pledge too late, exclusive items may not be produced in sufficient quantity for your pledge.

If you confirm your pledge within 8 weeks of our notification via email, you agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager system, that title and risk passes to you upon delivery to a common carrier for such shipment, and you are responsible for import duties or any other duties that may be payable to the relevant tax authorities, providing correct address information and ensuring this address is deliverable by normal methods. We regret we are unable to ship to PO Boxes.

If you do not accept these terms, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.
