We did it! The campaign is over and you got us well over 17k! That's well into our stretch goals, which means that we get to add a bunch of stuff to the game! We love making games and we couldn't keep doing it without your support! We'll keep you updated in the new year as the game progresses and we go into manufacturing!

In the meantime, here are a few words from almost the whole team (missing Mike Gauss):

Happy new year Space Fleet! Your mission has been a huge success!

In the distant future, a crew of oddballs in a ship that can barely stay powered must save themselves from themselves and from, the universe. To lead a starship one must possess a keen eye, a sharp mind, and the courage to stare down insurmountable odds – or at the very least one must own a ship with enough crew to keep it from exploding.

Deep 5H.1T is a competitive, resource management, strategy game for 2-4 players. You decide how your character will spend their actions, collect their resources and ultimately build their commendations to score enough points to be considered the true 'captain' of the very first 5H class ship in the space fleet. The running time is approximately 60-90 minutes for a full four player game.

Since the quality of components is important to us, Deep 5H.1T will include custom acrylic, wooden and metal game pieces to represent the various resources in the game and will also include high quality cards with a linen finish, and solid 2mm thick character boards and game board.

Check out our early sample images below to get a feel for how the game is going to look. The problem and solution cards will let you interact with your opponents to choose the best solutions to the problems facing the ship, while earning bonuses which will help you compete in the constant struggle over resources and points. Of course, even the best solutions won't help you if you don't prepare for the Deep 5H.1T cards.

As requested by our backers, we've added a very limited supply of Albion's Legacy to the backer mix. After we added that, we've received requests to add the exclusive Albion's Legacy collectable metal miniatures as well!  SO we hear you... and now it's time to open up that option.

At the ALLIANCE GALACTIC PRIME  level you will receive everything that RANK CAPTAIN receives. In addition, you will get a copy of Albion's Legacy's Kickstarter EXCLUSIVE BOX set (Not available through retail). Finally - you will receive all of the Albion's Legacy Collectable Miniatures (27 in total) (US, Canada and EU get free shipping & customs).

Mini's ship separate and incur a $20 shipping fee for the US, Canada and EU. Other parts of the world would be $30. (These rates may change based on where you're from.  Contact me if you need to talk about it.)

Everything you can possibly get!  Limited to 20.
Everything you can possibly get! Limited to 20.

 Of course... if you don't want all of the mini's and want just the CORE miniatures from Albion's Legacy, you can simply add $40 to your pledge as well as $10 for shipping in Canada, US and EU and $20 for anywhere else in the world. We've baked in the cost of some shipping into the pledge but that's the best we can do at the moment. The mini's will ship separately.

The perfect Christmas gift! 

 FREE CHRISTMAS BONUS!  With any pledge RANK LIEUTENANT or higher...

Deep 5H.1T: Space Pirates Video Game App

The development of Deep 5H.1T is well under way and we're rigorously testing our working prototype! Check out our playthrough/ tutorial video to see how things are coming along! What you'll see in the video is our current version of Deep 5H.1T, and we'll be continuing to test and refine the game as this campaign progresses so that we can make sure that Deep 5H.1T is at its best when we send it to you!

 A little video to help understand the manufacturing, creative and game choices by the creator.

Spreading the word is important to the success of this kickstarter and we want to give back to you for supporting the cause so we're offering social stretch goals! Become a fan of Deep 5H.1T on boardgamegeek.com and like and share the Deep 5H.1T Facebook page to unlock new content which will be included with all versions of Deep 5H.1T!

We have been lucky enough to have very gracious teachers show us how to get our game to you no matter where you live! This is a fairly lengthy process but please rest assured that we are working very hard to put Deep 5H.1T in your hands as affordable as possible for everyone involved!

  • United States and Canada (free shipping): This entire process will take about 45-50 days after the game is manufactured. Because we're aiming for free shipping, we've worked some of the basic costs into our campaign goals. For those of you who are local to Toronto, Ontario Canada or in Guelph, even closer to our home, we will be hosting a backers launch party where you will be invited to meet the design team, have a drink, and pick up your copy of the game! If you can't attend, we'll make sure that your copy is shipped to you!
  • European Union (free shipping): Our shipping costs for most of the EU are covered by our campaign goal.  We'll be shipping out of Germany so most nearby countries are covered. Please note that some countries are near by geographically but are not part of the EU and, as such, we'll need a reliable EU address to complete free shipping to those destinations. For parts of Western Europe that are NOT part of the EU, please add $8 to your pledge levels and for parts of Central Europe that are NOT part of the EU please add $28 to your pledge levels. We are working to mitigate these costs so hang tight for updates.
  • Anywhere Else: It's very expensive to ship individual packages to anywhere outside of our free shipping destinations.  Some are more expensive than others so we're trying to make it as cheap as possible for all our backers - period. Sending multiple units to a single place is one method to reduce shipping. If you're from any place outside of our free shipping destinations please consider a bulk option of 2 or more copies of a game to a single location.  If you are interested in just a single copy we recommend you add $30 to your total and indicate your shipping location. We have added special reward levels for your regions to help keep all of our costs down and get the game to you inexpensively.
  • Multiple Copies: If you're looking at getting multiple copies of this game, the shipping will be dramatically reduced. At the CAPTAIN level and above, if you pledge for 2 or more copies, the shipping is on the house!  All copies must go to the same address. Just add the appropriate funds as indicated on the pledge amount and specify during fulfillment surveys.

We want to get funded fast and start unlocking stretch goals so that we can offer you even more content! Spread the word through facebook, boardgamegeek.com, and twitter so that we can get the word out to as many people as possible! Make sure to check out our social stretch goals to see what we're giving you in return!

Risks and challenges

As with all Kickstarter projects, backing Deep 5H.1T will require a degree of trust and understanding. This is our second Kickstarter project, and we are absolutely grateful that the success of https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1746391996/albions-legacy, our first Kickstarter, has allowed us to do this again.

We're making a game that we want to play, and a game that we want to be proud of. We hope that you will come to understand that our pledge to you is that every backer and future player of the game will receive the highest quality of manufactured product. If you backed us on Albion's Legacy, we're glad to have you back, and if this is our first impression on you, we're planning on making it a satisfying and safe experience.

Industry standards will be met on all levels of production. Of course there are always monkey wrenches that may interfere with the timeline of production. These conditions will be communicated to you, the backers, at every single stage of development; from art work bleed issues to a delay in shipping, if an issue becomes prevalent we will make sure you know about it.
