Thank you so much for your support and let's close this campaign out strong!
Take on the role of an inventor jostling with your rivals for the resources required to build a collection of the quirkiest gadgets in our latest game Gadgeteers!
In Gadgeteers, you will secretly bid on the parts you require to build your most desired gadgets. Keen planning and clever bluffing will give you the edge you need to outwit your opponents.
Once you build a gadget, you may utilize its special power to your advantage. If you are able to build the most valuable collection of gadgets, you will be the winning Gadgeteer!
This game is fun, quick, compact and engaging! Playable in 20-30 minutes, for 2-4 players, ages 10+.
*Approximate Size. Actual dimensions may vary some as the components require.

The Game Mats are a great way to keep your game organized and add an even nicer look to your playing surface. The mats will measure 14"x24", are topped with durable and vibrant fabric, and are backed with 1/16" of sturdy rubber.
There is a reward tier to include the mat with only Gadgeteers for an additional $19. Game Mats can also be added on to any reward tier for an additional $19. Simply adjust your pledge to reflect the amount (i.e. $44+$19+Shipping) and you will be all set!
A word about customs fees
This game comes in a small box with a low declaration value, so most international backers will not get charged customs or import fees.

If you attended GenCon this year we hope you all had a blast! This is just a reminder that you're not billed for your reward until the campaign ends, so you can save for your pledge deduction until then!
Mike Cofer and Dan Letzring have worked together on a number of projects (in a variety of roles), but this is the first game that they have designed together. They would not let distance get between them as they would find time to play test new ideas with each other over Skype. It is a surprise they can get anything done with all of the bickering that goes on between them, but they found a way to power through and create a great game.
Jesse Labbe (Cover Art, Characters, Parts Illustrations) - It cannot be said that Jesse is just an illustrator. He writes, creates stories, designs games, and he also draws! From creating a world in the Berona's War graphic novel series to the American Stickman Military vs. Monsters book to the Cross Hares board game, Jesse loves creating worlds for people to play in! Jesse has provided artwork for all of Letiman Games titles (Dino Dude Ranch, Dirigible Disaster and Gadgeteers!).
Alisha Volkman (Gadget blueprint art) - Alisha is a night owl of an artist. She loves making art as much as she loves gaming. She gets her artistic inspiration from friends and life. When Alisha isn't drawing or gaming, she is taking care of her many reptiles and fuzzy animals!
Letiman Games is a small board game publisher in Rochester, NY whose main focus is great gateway games that are fun for groups of just adults but accessible for kids as well. We have run 3 successful Kickstarter campaigns, with 2 of them delivered and the third in the process of delivering! We strive to deliver fun products that include high quality components and are priced reasonably. Our goal is to bring family and friends together at the table with games! See you at the table!

Risks and challenges
We have now had the experience in successfully funding three campaigns with the hopes of this being our fourth! Two of the three campaigns have fulfilled successfully with the third expected to fulfill on time before the end of this campaign!
Problems always have the potential to arise, but we have proven that honest and open communication is a top priority and we always work hard to keep backers in the loop with production all the way through to fulfillment, also posting many pictures in updates along the way. If a problem arises, chances are we have already dealt with a similar problem. If not, we have many friends in the industry that can help us to resolve any issues we are unfamiliar with.
Finally, we focus on one game at a time and we do not rush it out the door. Each project gets our complete attention before we move on to our next campaign (waiting ~8-13 months between campaigns). Gadgeteers will get our complete attention until it is in your hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
