Add-on Assistance and a Dark Emcee

Posted by Laboratory (Creator)

Well alllllllllrighty then... that happened... fast? That's probably not a strong enough word. Sportily? It's 4 AM, so let's just leave it at 'sportily'.

$16k SMASHED open! So that means PennyGems, Mega Cards, and the new playmat design are all available as of right now! Pledge away!

A special PennyGems note: If you live outside the US and order PennyGems, you will receive the pennies as well so you can make use of them!

ALSO! I misstated the price of the Mega Card set as $28 dollars in the last update. That's wrong. It's actually $24. It's four cards for the price of three cards. Some of you commented on this, but it's worth clarifying since now you can actually buy them! Also, please see the add-ons section below for international shipping costs!

We just might get to $18k! If we do, we'll unlock a NEW card. We're going to open it up as another Design-a-Card, so if anyone has been sad that they missed their chance to make their indelible mark on Shift, you may still have a chance! But to be clear, EVERYONE will get another new card if we get there. You all become too awesome to deny. So if no one has a hankerin' for that Design-a-Card, we'll take care of it.

And if... dare I speak it... we get to $20k, we'll do a triple unlock: The Golden Die of Destiny, a final playmat design option, and inject downloadable cards into the app. Utter. Madness.

So as things are soon to wrap-up with this campaign, we wanted to help make sure everyone has a clear understanding of the add-ons. They're becoming more common in KS campaigns, but we've received a lot of questions, and we want to clear up any lingering confusion that may still be out there.

The table above contains the prices for all of the stretch goals and their respective international shipping costs. If you would like any of the items listed in addition to your physical goods pledge tier, just increase your pledge to the cost of your tier plus the add-ons you want (and any additional shipping if you live outside of the US). Once the campaign is over, we'll send out surveys that will allow you to choose the specific items that you want to include before we begin fulfillment.

Hopefully that is helpful! You know what else is helpful? Mysterious circuses!

In small towns like yours, when things get too dreary,
a circus will appear in the dead of night.
And though this strange big top may seem quite eerie,
the three rings provide the most incredible sights.

Juggling curios, on highwires they sway.
Performing feats that risk their very lives!
But if you think to be out of harms way,
you may be in for a shocking surprise.

For this circus’s mistress, a strange one indeed,
though you may think you’re on the attack,
she commands the spirits of her and her patrons
and, at will, can turn your once white heart to black.

      Daniel Fernow: Probably at the same time, but that's not final. There's some logistics stuff to figure out related to how we're going to manage that, so stay tuned to future updates for more into.

      Quick question: Will the P&P set of cards be released at the same time as the physical set? Or will we have access to it at any point before then?

      George Gibbs: As of now, just the original smaller 2 player mat formated for consumer printers. The pro mats are MUCH bigger.

      Joshua Stark: It's one card. If no one else is interested in that Design-a-Card will make a new card via our normal process for doing so. If anyone else wants the Design-a-Card, like the others, we'll work with them to design a new card. Either way, the card happens!

      Now that a 2nd playmat design has unlocked (and there being the possibility of a 3rd), which PDF Mat(s) will be included with most pledge levels - just the original, one we select from all mats unlocked/available, or will we get PDF copies of all the unlocked/available mats?

      In this update, you said that the $18k extra card will be available as a Create-a-card but if no one wants it, you guys will take care of it yourself. Does that mean that there will be one card, either made by you or whoever pledges for the Create-a-card, or does it mean there could be two extra cards, one by you and if someone buys the Create-a-card?

      I didn't understood the add-ons International shipping.
      If I want to buy the game with playmat and the mega cards the International shipping will be combined(5$+10$+6$) or just the highest one of them because it's one order??

      Hi Joe,
      You got the right idea. We aren't the only campaign on Kickstarter doing add-ons. Hopefully Kickstarter will add official support for this soon. All you have to do is click "manage your pledge," and then add the price of the add-on you want to your current pledge level. Then once the campaign is officially over, we'll send out surveys where you can choose which add-ons you bought!

      So if you've pledged 15 dollars, and you want the dice, just add 5 more to your current pledge (for a total of $20).

      I hope that answers your question.

      I don't understand what you guys are saying - we have to add onto our initial pledge in order to reep the benefits of some of these stretch goals? That's cool, but what? - we just those amounts from the little table together with our initial pledge and then I guess you'll sort out later which things we actually want? Is that right? Just makin ser
