Have you seen our other project, Walk the Plank Tin Edition? 

 

 

Your predecessor is spoken of in hushed tones. She (or was it he?) NEVER failed a mission. Regardless of the odds, he (or was it she?) would take any mission solo, leaving not but shadows and stolen secrets in his wake. Can you become the next Legendary Spy?

 

               

 

 

  • Limited Edition backers will get a hand-numbered sticker included with their game. Only 500 copies will have the Platinum Level Backer Sticker, so back now! 
  • Early delivery to your door! Backers will get this game several weeks in advance of the release date, or even earlier! 
  • Huge Savings! We expect HIDE to retail for $40-$50 USD, so you're getting the game at a significant savings off of the retail price. 
  • Cheap Shipping! We're subsidizing the shipping for all of you so shipping is extremely affordable. 
  • Great components, including custom-molded dice and punchboard hidden bases! 
  • Stretch Rewards! We'll be doing some great stretch rewards for this campaign, including a bonus expansion and a limited edition box.

 

 

Mayday is offering Limited Edition stickers to Platinum level backers. Be one of the first 500 backers to back HIDE at the Fated or Platinum level and get a hand numbered Platinum sticker with your game!

These stickers come separately with your game so YOU can choose what to do with it. Inside of your box? Sure! On your box so your gamer friends know you supported this game on Kickstarter? Why not?!

As copies disappear, additional levels will open up; including gold, silver, and copper at 500 copies each. Once all of those are gone, too, the unlimited copies won't come with any limited edition stickers.

Shipping is calculated based on your country, so please pledge and enter the country you want your rewards delivered to.  

  • Zone 1: $5 shipping. USA, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan  
  • Zone 2: $15 shipping. Canada, EU 
  • Zone 3: $20 shipping. Rest of the World 

Due to the increased weight and size of the game compared to our typical offerings, shipping will be in a box and is more expensive.

We are also shipping all the rewards outside of the USA directly from our fulfillment warehouse in China to you. That means the rewards will get shipped quickly and efficiently.  

Note that shipping will be from the USA for all US backers and all other rewards will ship directly from our fulfillment warehouse in China. We will state the direct manufacturing replacement cost on the customs form for all non-USA shipments, which means that even on a 2-pack shipment that your reward will fall well below the VAT/CUSTOMS/DUTY thresholds for you.  

We've fulfilled several other projects in this same manner and our backers have happily had no issues getting their rewards duty-free due to the low cost of our games.  

Shipping policy for incorrect addresses  

If your address is incorrect when we ship to you due to you moving and not updating your address, we can re-ship to you, but you'll need to pay the shipping balance (and only the shipping balance) again. We'll be sure to give everyone plenty of notice before we start shipping and locking down Pledge Manager entries.  

Will my shipment be traceable? I want a tracking number when it ships.

No, your shipment will not be traceable, it will show up as a first class package through your post office and those do NOT have tracking numbers. We can say that your reward will arrive in 7-30 business days after it ships. We can send you a screen shot of the shipping notice and confirm that it went out if it doesn't show up, but there is no tracking number. That's how we are able to offer such low shipping rates.  

If you want a tracking number, you can pay a little extra on your shipping service to get a tracking number. Here are the rates:  

Tracking Number Add On:  

  • Zone 1 (See countries above): +$1 more  
  • Zone 2: +$1 more  
  • Zone 3: +$2 more  

Note Regarding Late Surveys And Shipping

We won't ship rewards more than six (6) months after we finish shipping HIDE from our warehouses. We'll be sure to make several attempts to reach any stragglers over those six months, but after that period of time, we'll consider any remaining pledges with an incomplete survey a donation to Mayday Games and any copies set aside will be sold through game stores and conventions.

On Licensed Games  

HIDE is a licensed game, so there are already copies of the game out there in other languages. This campaign is specifically for the English edition of the game, though, so if you see someone online that already has it in another language, don't worry; we didn't do another version and send it out before this one.

 

 

We've had a lot of previous successful Kickstarter projects in the past. You'd think by now that we'd be set and not need to run such a project any more, right? Well, not so much. While Mayday has been successful, we're still very small with our cash is tied up in other projects. In fact, if you look at Mayday's early publishing history, we introduced just three new games in 2010 and 2011 before we discovered Kickstarter.

Since utilizing Kickstarter, we've launched over 30 new games, and that is ALL thanks to backers like you. By using Kickstarter, we're able to gauge interest and get the game made in much larger quantities and with cheaper prices to our customers. This is a large part of why we were able to offer our last few projects at such a low price point. With this much stuff in the game and such a small company, this would only be possible with the support of the Kickstarter community.

 

Risks and challenges

This will be our 34th successful Kickstarter project, and it doesn't have any risks to speak of if we meet our goal. The factory is ready to publish and the art and layout has been completed. Any additionally needed changes should be completed prior to the end of the campaign. We've launched 30 prior Kickstarter projects.

Anyone missing anything at all from any prior project please send us a message here on Kickstarter and we'll get you replacements or other solutions as soon as possible. We've had over 33,000 backers (UPDATE TO INCLUDE JULY CAMPAIGN'S NUMBERS), so we expect a few of you may have slipped through the cracks. Thanks again for all of the support!

We have a few partially undelivered KS projects at present, but we expect to have this one delivered on time. We're putting extra time into our forecast for delivery to ensure this project will NOT be delayed beyond the estimated delivery date.
