Guide to Diving

Over the course of a round, players accumulate and protect cards through choice, buying, and diving. At the end of a round, players try to create "hands" to earn victory points.

Players create hands from the trash found during each round. Each item carries the theme from the room it is a part of. The base game of Dumpster Diver has 6 rooms. Rooms contain 10 cards. Players lay down Rooms (matching cards) or Assortments (non-matching cards). Players need at least three cards to play a room or assortment. 

Victory points are awarded throughout the game for playing rooms and assortments, including any extra victory points for the bonus VP card in play. During the final round, victory points are also awarded for money. 

The goal is to have the most victory points at the end of the game.

Background  

Dumpster diving is a real thing. From Wikipedia, "Dumpster diving is the practice of sifting through commercial or residential waste to find items that have been discarded by their owners, but prove useful to the picker."

In the UK and EU, it is also referred to as totting, skipping, or skip diving.

Risks and challenges

This is our fifth Kickstarter. We have produced miniatures, dice, books, cards, maps, and counters in previous games. There are no miniatures associated with this game. It is a card game.

We've done our best to minimize unknown risks as much as a company can. We will communicate all the pieces and parts through KS updates. Through the entire process of the KS (pledges, production, and fulfillment) we communicate. After the KS is complete, we put out weekly updates until the product has been delivered. The game is 95% complete, we are not worried about the outcome of the printing or delivering the product on time.

We have successfully delivered Myth, MERCS Recon, and the majority of Banner Saga Warbands. We have one project in the middle of delivery: Myth Journeyman. It is slated to be delivered in the middle of Oct. The Warbands and Journeyman stretch goals are currently in production.

The estimated delivery date for the Dumpster Diver early delivery is November 2016. We wanted to offer our take on an early bird. It isn't a discount. This date is an estimate, but we are very, very confident in its delivery.

From past experience, the more successful the KS the longer the delays, but we have always delivered. We understand that delays can and will happen with anything produced overseas, especially with logistics and customs. We also make sure we fix any issues with copies received by backers to the best of our abilities.

International backers (especially in the EU) may receive their rewards later than others.

REFUND POLICY

After the initial funding, backers have an opportunity to ask for a refund from the Kickstarter system. All refunds after MegaCon Games receives the funding are done at our discretion.

If we’ve begun packaging your pledge for shipment (usually 4 to 6 weeks before the actual shipping date), no refunds are possible.

This project is being funded in USD and any refunds processed will be in USD for the exact amount received in USD, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.
