Update #7

Another free bonus for USA shipments if it reaches $40,000!

9 comments

We are amazed at the response so far, the project has raised almost $32,000 in funds in 22 days!  With just over a week to go it looks like we are on track to hit $40,000!

We have been trying to find something useful/exclusive to include in the Kickstarter and have an exclusive new Kickstarter reward to die for!  Yes this will be included for all USA shipments of rewards of $12 or more if the funding reaches $40,000.   So what is it?

A Zombie Die!

One small annoyance of the game is that you have to remember how many zombies are supposed to come out each turn.  The game starts with one zombie per turn and then climbs to 2,3,4 or more as the game progresses.  We have admittedly lost track of the # of zombies coming out on occasion so thought what better way to keep track than with a Zombie Die!  Yes Die Zombie Die!  

Just start the game with the Rosie the Riveter face up indicating one zombie per turn.  Then each time you shuffle the zombie deck and move up a level you change the Zombie Die up by one number.  This way you always remember how many zombies are supposed to come out.  It is a simple, fun way to remember the zombies and really how could we say no to a Zombie Die!  Whats more, it will easily fit in the box!

Every USA delivered copy will get this exclusive Zombie Die! with every copy in your reward if the pledge gets over $40,000... which should be easy based on how it has done so far.  Note it will ship out with the expansion or on its own about 8 weeks after the game.

Update: Please note the zombie die will apparently take 8 weeks to produced so it will NOT go out with the game, but rather on its own separately or when the expansion is shipped to you for those with the expansion coming.  For those picking up at Essen we will NOT have the die in time for you.   We can ship it out with the expansion for those ordering the expansion, or with any other purchase on our website for free, but we can't ship these internationally on their own. 

If anyone getting the game internationally shipped would like to wait to receive the game until the die is released we can do that for you, but it will put your shipment back about 6-7 weeks.  We will email you at the end of the campaign to let you know.  Sorry for the change here but we do NOT have the ability to internationally mail these die separately.

Tell your friends about the Eaten By Zombies infection, get a 2nd copy for your friends/loved ones/undead or use it as a door prize at your upcoming Halloween party!   You will have it in plenty of time as the game will be shipping around the end of September or early October!  Yes it is en route to us now!

Please spread the infection and help us get this over the $40,000 goal! 

Be sure and check the last 24 hours of the campaign too for one last surprise for all existing backers ONLY.  Yes the special offer will only be for backers that are already pledged!

      Yes Mark, but you need to add $2 to your pledge for the international shipping of the die separately. If you want to wait until the die are in stock we can delay your shipment by 7 weeks and send it all together at no extra cost too. Thanks for your support!

      I'm doing what Troy did and adding $2 to get my die shipped separately :D thanks seth

      Not a problem. So if I add 2 dollars to my current pledge you'll ship it seperately when it is read? Sounds like a deal. I'll add the two dollars to my pledge (since I'd like to get the game before I get the die) :) Thanks for the option Seth.

      It is a question of price... shipping internationally for the item will be about $2. We are giving away a $1 die already on a $25 priced game. The international game shipping is actually about $13.95/unit and we are only charging $32 for the international shipping option. This means after shipping and Kickstarter fees we are down below $18/unit already. Taking another $3 off of the revenue for this small first run of the game is just not possible.

      Anyone wanting to have us ship the die separately is welcome to add $2 to their existing pledge to cover the extra international shipping of the die and we can then ship it separately. If you want you can get the die shipped with the game, it will just delay the shipment by about 7 weeks. It is an option though for sure. We're really sorry about this Troy!

      Why can't the zombie die be shipped seperately to international buyers? And does international include Canada? :)

      It is so exciting. On track for the zombie die and there is also the final 24 hours secret bonus for existing backers. Also with shipment in early October I will likely see this game in my hands even before projects that were successful in June.

      The first one was the Promo Cards included with every copy of the game on Kickstarter and not included in the general release of the game.
