THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
In Höyük each player represents a clan which will settle with other clans to erect a village. A replica of a Neolithic settlement will be built on the Höyük board using tiles to represent houses. Many additional pieces, such as ovens, shrines, and pens, will also aid a player in building their settlements.
The purpose of the game is to build the best settlement and score the most victory points. There are multiple paths to victory with many choices along the way. The best Clan will prevail in Höyük!
Note: The Stretch Goals have been adjusted because we were running a 2nd campaign at the same time with this one, that is why we reached the most of them faster!
Check us on Kicktraq:
Our goal is to produce this game with superior quality. In order to achieve this goal we need your support to reach our funding goal of $15,000. This will help us to cover production costs which include things such as set-up costs, printing, packaging, shipping, taxation, molds, and illustrations. You can help us not only by backing the project, but also promoting the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, Forums, and Reddit.
If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What Total Value Means: In each pledge level we state the total value of that reward. This value includes the value of that product/s and the shipping fees. This way you will be able to know the fees you save. In each pledge level we separate packs and offers for different countries, so be very careful before you pledge.
USA Backers: Shipping takes place via Fedex. You will receive your products on time, safely and you do not pay additional taxes or handling fees.
EU Backers: Shipping takes place via DHL from within Europe. Thanks to that, you will receive your products on time, and you will not pay additional taxes or handling fees.
Canadian Backers: The shipping fees we have calculated in the pledge level are based on delivery via Fedex. That means the ship fees are much less than USPS BUT most of the packs will be subject to customs so you may pay more. Of course we can change that and send your order via USPS but you will have to pay more ship fees ($10-$35) depending on the order and the final size. If you want us to use USPS just contact us before you pledge.
Australian-Asian Backers: Shipping fees takes place from China via courier in order to keep as low as possible the ship fees. This way you will not have to wait anymore much longer to receive your goods + there will be a safety regarding the products' delivery at your door.
All other Backers: This one includes people who live in countries like Brazil, Peru etc. In these regions as well as few more we use USPS. You don't have to pay any customs or taxes etc BUT shipping fees are much higher. We pay a part of these fees and try to do the best as we can for you.
Pledge Level $95: It is not available for Asian or Australian Backers. . Höyük will be shipped from China for these regions and we don’t have stock in China. The remaining stock is in Europe and USA and that means we will have to send separated packs. So the charges are much higher. However we search for a solution.
Behind this project there is a company experienced with designing, producing and delivering games. With each project we introduce new improvements in order to offer better services. Höyük has been tested by at least 15 groups. Kickstarter is the way to make this game known to the board gaming community with your help we know we can do it!

Risks and challenges
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING ON THIS CAMPAIGN.
Even though we do our best to unsure a quality product and a fast production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holidays and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. MAGE Company should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties.
When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If after you receive your order, you find out that there are items missing, please contact us at email@example.com and we will send you the missing items as soon as possible.
If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible.
Our current estimation for delivery is August 2014. We are optimistic that this campaign will be delivered sooner than that. However history has shown that no matter how well you plan things, there is always a chance of delays caused by third parties. Please understand that we want your orders to be delivered quickly as much as you do.
If a package is not delivered due to a backers fault (wrong address given, backer didn’t claim the delivered package from their post office, etc) , the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.
As soon as this campaign is over, you will be requested to complete a survey through which you can let us know which items you have ordered as well as where you would like us to ship your order to. By keeping in mind that your order may be shipped sooner or later than the estimated date, please give us an address that will surely not change. (If for example you think that you may be moving to a new house around June, please give us the address of a friend or relative to ensure a successful delivery)
Please read the Shipping section above.
Through this campaign you may receive updates on MAGE Company's upcoming projects.
BY PLACING A PLEDGE ON THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS & CHALLENGES STATED IN THIS SECTION.
