Get Bit! has been hugely popular and our new Deluxe Tin Version will feature lots of upgraded art, new innovations and a cool tin box!

Summary:  As we have had a lot of goals unlocked let us summarize what you get with a BASE pledge of $26:

Get Bit Deluxe Game 
+ Bonus Zombie Pirate Sticker Set from $15 k reward
+ Bonus Set of Stickers for $25 k reward (more customization)
+ Bonus Squid and Dolphin Mini Expansions for $40 k reward
+ Pack of Card Sleeves IF we reach the $47,875 goal

You can also add on to your reward a ton of extras, bonuses and discounted extras as a backer! Don't forget to add shipping to your pledge too!

Update #10 (Oct 9): With one day to go we have a new Stretch reward at $47,875 which would make this Mayday's top KS project ever.  If we reach this goal all backers at $25 or more in their reward will also get a free pack of card sleeves with each copy of the Get Bit Deluxe Game in their pledge.  Backers at the $25 or greater reward level can now add $42 to their existing pledge to get Eaten By Zombies, In Cahoots, We Have the Bomb Promo and Weapons of Mass Destruction Promo,  This is ONLY for the last day and we hope it will help us reach this final stretch goal!

Because this new $42 add-on will ship separately, Canadian buyers must add $7 in additional shipping for this (so $49 total), and Worldwide buyers must add $10 additional shipping for this ($52 total).  

Update #9 (Oct 5): New images of some of the stretch reward items including the pink pirate lady design and another sheet of zombie/monster stickers for all backers!

Update #7 &8 (Oct 5): 4 days to go!  We dropped the $50 k stretch reward to just $40 k to help push this over the edge!  We also just posted a BACKER ONLY update to give some seriously insane discounts on some other Mayday Items that you can add on to your pledge to help push us over the edge!  Get on it and share this projects, just a few days left!  Thanks to all!

Also we posted the details of the two expansions for the Squid mini-expansion and the Dolphin Expansion, check them out!  Both are YOURS if we get over $40,000 and if you pledge at $25 or more!  

Update #6 (Sept 27): Stretch Rewards for $25,000 UNLOCKED yesterday!  BoardGameGeek Contest is underway!  New retailer reward added!  Just under 2 weeks to go, can we get to $50,000?  Stay tuned, graphics for stretch rewards and more are coming soon!  Thanks to all for pledging!

BONUS:  All stores at the $150 level get $10 off the shipping costs, we want to support you!

Update #5 (Sept 23): Details of the two mini expansions for the $50,000 stretch reward announced! The "Get Diced" are two mini-expansions that consist of the Squid Die and The Dolphin mini-expansions.  Check out the rules and details HERE.   This means two extra dice and a full set of 10 extra Dolphin Cards for all backers over $25!  Help us get to the $50,000 mark!

Update #4 (Sept. 17): Reworked Rewards Announced and new add-ons announced for Sharkspansion & Extra Colors as follows:

Unlocked $15 k =We will be including a bonus set of themed pirate decals for the game at all backer levels at $25 and over. ZOMBIE PIRATES for all! Pictures coming soon!

$25 k = We will include another bonus decal set for all backers at $25 and over. It will be pirate themed and EPIC, but we will not announce the theme or pictures until it is unlocked. We are working on this now!

$50 k = We are working on two custom die that will add a Squid or possibly Jellyfish attack element to each round. This will include the custom dice needed to play the expansion for ALL at $25+. The dice would effect the order of the line and move players up or back based on the roll.

$75 k = LOCKED. Will announce at the $50 k mark.

$100 k = LOCKED. Will announce at the $50 k mark.

Now any backer who is at $25 or more can add any/all of these rewards:

Sharkspansion + Meat Tokens: Just $5! You can check out the rules and details HERE. Note these will be the design below with the one error from the first edition fixed. You can download the rules now HERE.

Bonus Pink Player w/ retro cards: Just $5! Get the pink player as well as cards for the pink player, all for $5. Please note the cards are in our "classic" graphics for that fun retro feel. Yes the pink player will be different and special! Check out images and details HERE.

Bonus Orange Player w/ revised cards: Just $5! As begged for by many of our backers, this never before seen ORANGE colored player and cards with updated graphics. Pictures coming soon!

Bonus full set of 6 players and 2nd Shark: Just $15! You can get a full set of 6 player pieces in Green, Red, Yellow, White, Blue and Purple, plus an extra shark! This little bag of goodies is great because it includes two colors of players not in the Deluxe Metal Tin Set, and it has extras for your own personal enjoyment. Take the with you, put them in the office, or give them to the kids as toys!

To add any of these items to your existing pledge just go to the Get Bit KS page and click the "Manage my Pledges" on the right hand column. Then adjust up your pledge by the appropriate amount, but leave the reward selected the same. At the end of the campaign we will send you a survey asking what (if anything) extra you pledged for and for your shipping address. It is very simple!

Update #3 (Sept 16): $15,000 and 500+ backers reached! $15 k goal unlocked and announcement of re-working of stretch rewards to make them more attainable.

Update #2 (Sept 9): $9,500 in pledges in just 4 days! CRAZY! More Stretch Rewards announced.

Update #1 (Sept 7): Wow! We reached our goal in just 2 days!  Congrats to all and Stretch reward for $15 k announced.

Have you heard of Get Bit!?  It was our very first Kickstarter game way back in September of 2011 (check it out HERE).  We met our goal by almost 10 times and the game has gone on to be a huge hit!  So now we are back almost a year later, launching the new Metal Tin Deluxe edition of Get Bit.   We are offering this on a very limited basis and are unsure how many copies like this will/may be printed in the future.  The only thing we know for sure is that anyone who backs this on Kickstarter WILL GET A COPY!  

We just aren't sure how many of these to make or how much demand is out there.  We do know our first kickstarter did really well in only 15 days and we wanted to give more people a chance to get this game with a longer campaign.  We need your help to properly produce this print run and help fund this project! 

"...if you don't enjoy Get Bit! as a quick-playing casual experience, than you probably just hate having fun."  -MTV Geek.com

"I highly recommend Get Bit! It's a nice change of pace from a serious session of D&D or more cerebral board game fare. Sometimes, you just want to shove your friend in front of the gaping, serrated maw of nature's deadliest predator, and this game allows you to do just that, in between snacking on Chex Mix and downing root beer." Marc Allie, The Learning DM

"Get Bit! has absolutely taken my family and friends by storm. Usually when that happens I tire of the game quickly, but with this one I am always happy to play. I love the quandaries that you'll find yourself in as you try to predict what another player will play. The game moves fast, and is even more fun with 6 players than it is with 3. This is a game that I can't imagine I'll ever go long without playing at least once. It fits into so many situations with so many groups, and gives just enough fun and strategy for its short playtime."  -BLott, Board Game Reviewer

This game was featured on Wil Wheaton's video series Table Top Games, episode #3 as seen here:

Get Bit starts at 19:27 in the above video.

Get Bit is already one of Tom Vasel's TOP 100 GAMES OF ALL TIME, coming in at #90 out of over 2,500 different games he is reported to have played!  Interestingly it also made is daughters list at #67.

The game has also been turning heads since it won the Origins Award this year for BEST FAMILY/PARTY/CHILDRENS GAME of 2012.

You can check out tons of comments, reviews and videos for the game over on BGG.

Wanna learn?  Watch a video of the game in your own language! Check out the game play in CHINESE, GERMAN, ENGLISH, or POLISH.  Or read the rules in GERMAN, POLISH, KOREAN, or ENGLISH.  

So if the game is already produced, what is this?  It is a totally new presentation on the game!  Introducing our Metal Tin Deluxe Set of Get Bit!  This has tons of upgrades and changes to it! For one we have all-new re-designed artwork for the cards themselves:

Each card has a unique image!
Each card has a unique image!

The game itself will come in a handsome tin box, with all new graphics and some nice raised lettering on the front too:

The game will also feature pirate-themed men rather than plain robots, adding immensely to the them and feel of the game!

Also redesigned in the rule book, with easier-to understand rules including nicer graphics and examples.  On the back of the rulebook will be a nice "walk the plank" graphic to act as a game play area.  In addition to this there are now some 2- and 3-player variants developed for this rulebook, making the game a blast for 2-6 players, not just 4-6 players as previously!

Note this is the French Version of the Tin Set, yours will be ENGLISH
Note this is the French Version of the Tin Set, yours will be ENGLISH

Of course you'll still get the great plastic figures that you can dismember as they get bit, and yes you also get the plastic shark! 

Also we are including the new brown colored pirate not available previously, so even if you have the original game, you will be getting an all-new colored dismemberman in this set!

So whats in it for you?  For one you will be guaranteed a copy of this fully upgraded version of an established hit game. The original game keeps selling out at $25, and you get all these extras/upgrades and more at a cost of just $1 more than the original classic!  You get all of the above improvements with a much stronger theme, all for just $1 more than the original.  But wait, there's more!

You will also get your copy of the game shipped at least 3 weeks in advance of any retailer/distributor!  Yes these will be advanced copies!

As a backer of this project we are also going to throw in a second graphics sheet for you to personalize your pirates!  That's right, every color pirate will have two choices so you can decide how you want your game to present. 

Unlocked $15 k =-We will be including a bonus set of themed pirate decals for the game at all backer levels at $25 and over.  ZOMBIE PIRATES for all!  Pictures coming soon!  

$25 k = We will include another bonus decal set for all backers at $25 and over. It will be pirate themed and EPIC, but we will not announce the theme or pictures until it is unlocked. We are working on this now!

$50 k =  We are working on two custom die that will add a Squid or possibly Jellyfish attack element to each round. This will include the custom dice needed to play the expansion for ALL at $25+. The dice would effect the order of the line and move players up or back based on the roll.

Want more?  We have a card sleeve kickstarter going right now for our new Swan Panasia line of card sleeves HERE.  If you back both projects we will waive the shipping on the Get Bit rewards since they will both be finishing up at the same time and shipping to you in one shipment!

Swan Panasia Card Sleeves Kickstarter Project

In other words you get free shipping on THIS kickstarter project's rewards if you are pledged on the other kickstarter project at any level with rewards coming to you, but you have to pay the shipping on the other kickstarter project unless that reward says free shipping.

In other words, if you are international and pledge at the $38 level on the other kickstarter and the $25 level on this one, then you pay the $38 + $25 + the $10 shipping from the other kickstarter, but NO shipping on this one. If you pledge at the $95 or more reward level on the Sleeves Kickstarter then shipping is free on the other project as stated there, AND free on this project too, so $95 + $25 + $0 shipping in that case.

FAQ

  • Wow.. you're really trying to milk this aren't you? SURE GO AHEAD... if you pledge at the $38 level or above on the Sleeves reward and the $26 or above level on Get Bit! then YES you will get FREE SHIPPING on the Get Bit project's rewards no matter where you live! Note that at the lower levels of the Sleeves KS you do have some shipping to pay internationally. At the $95+ levels there is FREE shipping though!

    Yes that means if you pledge at the $95 or above level on the Sleeve Kickstarter you will pay NO SHIPPING anywhere in the world for your entire shipment of Get Bit + Sleeves!

    Last updated:
  • Yes certainly! You will get DOUBLE the funding rewards, if there is a "sharkspansion" for example as an unlocked stretch reward, you will get 2 copies of it with your rewards. It is a double of EVERYTHING.
