Frequently Asked Questions
You CAN back for $1 and get access to the game later in our pledge manager, however the price will be going up. One unfortunate side effect of world events is that the Canadian dollar has take a hit and lost 6 cents last week, and since all my expense are paid in USD, everything just got a bit more expensive. So the cost will go up $2-4 CAD for the Retail edition and $4-6 CAD for the deluxe. So backing it now gets you in at the lowest possible price AND it helps us unlock the free app for solo and co-op!Last updated:
First of all welcome! I'm so happy that you're considering supporting us and this game.
Kickstarter is a crowd sourcing platform. Creators like myself make something and tell the world about it here on Kickstarter.com. If enough people pledge money to the campaign - then it funds and the 'something' will get made and exist!! In my case, it's a board game called MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage "Game". Effectively you are an investor in the game and you give me money, and in return you get a copy of the game when it is finally manufactured (in my case, either the Retail version of the game, or the Kickstarter exclusive Deluxe edition).
So scroll to the top and in the right-hand column you'll see all the different rewards. Choose Retail or Deluxe (or Brick and Mortar if you are a retailer). The project has already met its funding goal so this is definitely going to happen!
Once the campaign is over, you'll be asked to head on over to a pledge manager where they will collect any extra money for shipping and get your address.
Then we wait a bit while we make the thing, and then it's shipped to you to play!
Pretty easy once you do it! :-) Feel free to ask Jay any questions you have.

Shipping will be collected after the campaign in the pledge manager. You only need to pledge the amount listed in the reward level and then after the campaign is over, a link will be sent out for you to enter your address and pay for shipping.
You will only be charged the amount that is listed near the bottom of the campaign page, based on your location.
Shipping is very expensive so we are subsidizing shipping as much as we can to help lower the cost.Last updated:
100% yes. This was a concept that Sen and I had when designing the game. We wanted to ensure that nothing was destroyed as people played it. The concept is that the game balance should shift between the two sides as you play. Once you’re more familiar with all the components, then you can easily tailor the game to your difficulty level. You can even play with a handicap when playing against people that are really good at it!Last updated:
Hey I’m glad you asked! Being a super small publisher means I only have so much time in the day to do everything. Also, my reach can only go so far. If you feel so inclined, please talk about this game or this campaign online, or with your friends. There’s a media kit in the campaign where you can access new avatars or other images to help you out. Whether it’s on your own page/Twitter/Instagram, or if it’s in a relevant Facebook group, I’d love your help in increasing the awareness of this game.Last updated:
Yes, absolutely! One of the best comics in the last 20 years! MIND MGMT was created, written and illustrated by the genius, Matt Kindt. It ran for 36 issues and is collected into 6 graphic novels, or 3 Omnibus editions. It was on the NY Times Best Selling list for 2 weeks as well. You might have noticed, but Matt Kindt also did all the art for this game! He’s a pretty awesome guy...and busy! Matt has even written the script for a MIND MGMT TV series and it’s currently being reviewed!Last updated:
Yes. Yes it is. Packed. And they’re all well hidden. You’ll never find them. Or maybe you will.Last updated:
Yes absolutely! We love sleeves too and will make sure everything fits perfectly with or without sleeves.Last updated:
Not right now. I am looking at finding international partners to publish this game in other regions of the world. More details to come. As of right now, this is an English-only game.
While you could easily play the base game as there isn't much text needed during game play, it's once you open the SHIFT System packages where there's a lot more reading to do.Last updated:
