Frequently Asked Questions
Yes you can! For each extra set of 60 coins (20 of each colour) add $15 AUD to your base pledge level. That means if you're backing at the $45 Adventurer level, and you want two extra sets of coins, you need to pledge $45+$15+$15 = $75+Shipping.
There is no increase in shipping cost with coin add-ons, so just pledge the same $10 or $15 you would normally; Kickstarter should automatically add the correct shipping amount for your part of the world to your pledge total.Last updated:
Yes, it does! This was an error on our part, and unfortunately we can no longer edit the pledge description.
We would like to assure all backers at the Double Adventurer level that they will receive two access keys to all unlocked digital content, regardless of the pledge level description reading 'Physical only'.Last updated:
The low price is thanks to two factors; the low Aussie dollar, and the Kickstarter platform.
Dreary Hamlet is an Australian game, and as such the majority of our early backers were local supporters. Manufacturing and shipping is all handled in USD, and with the low Aussie dollar right now if we were pricing our game at close-to-retail costs for the US market it would be prohibitively expensive for Australian backers. We love our fans more than we love money, so we've kept the price as low as possible for them; the outcome of which is that for most international backers outside of Australia the game is very inexpensive considering its components.
We have made the low price point possible by only taking a very small profit margin compared to most games. We believe that Kickstarter is not a shop, and that our backers should be rewarded for showing faith in the product before it is released, so close to 100% of the funds raised here will go directly towards paying for the game; as a company we will worry about making a larger profit for ourselves when and if the game goes to retail.
This all-in approach is what has allowed us to offer our backers a deluxe game at an affordable price.Last updated:
We will be sending all EU games in bulk to a warehouse in Germany, where our distributor will break the pallets down into individual games and forward them on to backers. This means that we will pay all import/VAT fees, rather than passing them on to our backers.Last updated:
Absolutely! We are taking sleeved cards into consideration with the box sizing, however be aware that it may be a little harder than normal for you to find 3.5 x 3.5 inch sleeves to cover the large square cards in the creature deck.Last updated:
Every pledge at the Double Adventurer level or higher will be sent in the first wave of shipping; it's the least we can do to say thank you for your wonderful support!Last updated:
Update number 4 has you covered! http://tinyurl.com/DhUpdate4
This update takes a more thorough look at the rules, and spends some time covering a few of the different strategies employed by those who play the game. If it doesn't answer your questions, be sure to leave a comment and we'll get back to you with a clarification as soon as we can!Last updated:
We don't need to make the game harder, because it actually does that all by itself!
At the start of a game the creature grid is often filled with low-to-mid level creatures, however as players pick off the easy beasts the grid (and by extension the game) gets harder. With each passing day the players will find it more and more difficult to find an easy opponent, and the threat of night will become truly terrifying.Last updated:
