Have a question?
Steven, that really sucks, but we were very clear from the start that the add-on purchases would be coming from the USA and you should try to just buy them locally instead. I hope you enjoy the game!
Just got stiffed with £20 customs duty with the original game and expansion add on
Surprise delivery for me, too. for my Manhatten Project + Expansion add on!
Thanks for the surprise delivery today of the add on purchases. Was very happy to open the box and see the Manhattan Project, Chain Reaction and energy empire arrive. Yay!!
@Luiz, the PnP reward level says September. It's not done yet.
Where is the PNP ???
Ok thanks. I aslo want to thank you for not charging MSRP for addon games, out of over 60 games I've back on Kickstarter I think yours is the first I've seen not charge MSRP. I was going to get Second Stage from my preferred OLGS, but instead added it to my pledge.
@DGenearteKane, I think without the resource cards (which you don't need if you carry the bits along) it will fit the box sleeved. But you may want to buy a MTG plastic box or something to carry it all.
I'm late filling out my pledge and missed out on the Deluxe version of Chain Reaction. Will the tuckbox the regular edition has fit sleeved cards?
Thanks for answering my question - I was having trouble finding the answer online. Can't wait to get my own copy of the games, and eventually the new sequel! Good luck with the shipping work!
Oh, so I guess I now have an extra Nations pack, out 6 bucks. :/
Thanks for the reply! I'll keep an eye out.
Sorry no tracking per delivery notices. 160 orders are going out today. Many more this and next week. If you don't get your stuff by the end of the month then feel free to ask for tracking info.
@Minion Games - first would like to say that I really appreciate the effort in shipping out available add-ons ahead of project fulfilment! Will we be receiving a shipping notification for the add-ons? Of course, if not, it wouldn't be the worst case to be greeted with a surprise package one of these days :)
Sorry if it wasn't clear, but the Second Stage copies we have now should all be the one that includes the extra 7 nations cards from Nations 1.
We started shipping these out today.
If I recall correctly, the second stage has included the nations expansion since its second edition.
@Todd, I didn't get the impression they were included, so I just ordered a copy of Nations. I hope I didn't end up buying that for naught.
I added on the Manhattan Project + Second Stage bundle (and the other games - been dying for my own versions of the game). I was wondering though, do I need to also purchase the nations expansion, or is it included in the bundle?
Great. Thanks for getting back with me. I was able to checkout with PayPal, so I believe the problem is fixed. Thanks again.
@Winson, a couple people reported some error which I think was only temporary. I passed it on to their support dept and so just try again. We will start hipping add-ons tomorrow.
@Jon, the EE promo card will ship with your MtM game. But if you're in a hurry you can buy it from our website now for $1 plus shipping.
@Minion Games, thank you for clarifying that. I ordered EE via Amazon per your recommendation, and to get it sooner. Also, I was hearing about this Missle Crisis promo for EE? I take it I have to track down a copy of that elsewhere to get it? And there is no way to get that here?
Is anyone having trouble checking out with crowdox paying with PayPal?
No not the promos for EE. Promos for DMTNT if you ordered DMTNT yes. EE promo if you ordered EE. But the EE promo if you didn't order EE will come with the M2M game. In fact if you also ordered EE you'll probably end up with 2 promos in the end as it's not worth the hassle to sort them out. Just share them with someone :)
@Minion Games, when you ship the add-ons, does that mean the promo card as well? I just broke out energy empire for the first time tuesday and everyone ended up liking it, so looking forward to adding the promo to the mix as soon as possible.
The Pledge Manager will, however, remain open till closer to the final game shipping where we'll ship any additional addons with the final game.
I will post an update later today. I'm hoping to ship the first wave of add-ons next Monday (July 27th) for the USA. The EE games for the UK are delayed as they want $10 per game just to ship them there (then there will be trucking and vat and final processing and shipping- costing us nearly as much as we sold them for - the under 200 units seems to be the issue) and we're trying to work out another option.
What is the deadline for the pledge manager?
It was stated in the graphic for the add-ons. It was stated in the UPDATE. It's obvious we you add them to the cart, I don't think we need to add a FAQ. We suggest anyone outside the USA wanting anything besides Energy Empire should try here:
as that's the same company that ships to our backers anyway. The only reason the add-ons are being allowed for non-USA people is that some people just have no choice but to pay the high shipping.
Can i suggest you add EU friendly shipping statement for add ons to the FAQ,
From what i have read its clear that Add ons are not friendly and what not, but having them in there would be easier to find (was my first point of call then here then a message was coming!)
Also if im wrong please correct me!
@Felix, early August when most have finished ordering. Then probably one more time after that before the final shipment.
So when are you planning on shipping the add ons?
Sorry, been busy trying to ship my Foam Dice campaign this weekend/week. Anyway, the campaign just passed 150k in the PM so we will do cardboard player mats at least for the first printing. I'll be doing an update soon. Probably tomorrow.
@Minion any word on the player boards yet?
Sorry to confuse... there are 2 EE promo cards and we'll include both in the packing of the mini-expansion and the M2M promos.
Ah, I guess I misunderstood recent conversation, that there was another promo card. So there is only 1 EE promo card? If so, cool. Sounds good.
Jon, Missle Crisis card will be shipped with EVERY order.
Any way to get that Missile Crisis promo card added to my pledge without having to add EE to the pledge, if say you already had EE?
Thank you very much for the clarification
@Troy, the Kickstarter stated add-ons were only for USA and you should not have pledged extra there. Please contact us directly at email@example.com to adjust your pledge and issue a refund via paypal (we can not refund your credit card).
@Ian, The EE addon will include the Missle Crisis promo card from the original Kickstarter. Your Minutes to Midnight pledge includes the new Nation Mexico promo for this game as well.
Well, I couldn't decide which previous MP game to add on to MP2 so I went with all of them... Should hold me over until MP2 arrives (hopefully) later this year!
Hi, When I backed the project I added extra funds under the assumption they could be put towards shipping, but I appears this is not the case? The amount wouldn't be enough to cover the full shipping, (I have not clicked all the way through the manager/survey as the last option states all things are final, so I backed out), yet it lists the extra funds as 'donated', which was not my intention at all. Anyway to fix this issue? I am already in the highest bracket for shipping, and do not have to 'pay/donate' more on top if this. The extra was added specifically to help me when shipping came due. thanks
@Creator, sorry to hear that. The nice discount was sadly consumed by shipping, I will consider buying the game locally instead.
Upgraded my pledge to UK M2M and added EE, does the EE added in the pledge manager include the promo card from the EE KS? Couldn't see any evidence in the pledge manager but thought that copies of EE added in this campaign would include that card.
Dan, it wouldn't save any money. We pay about $24 to get the game there, have them pack it and the cost of shipping. Sometimes it's $28. Shipping them together in December may save a couple bucks ($5) at most and it's not the way things are setup.
EE adds 25$ for shipping in EU, any chance to have to have an option were it is shipped with MTM?
If you have any friends who waited on this please let them know they can late-back the campaign for only a little be more. With all the people that have had hard times getting our games outside the USA I hope some more will take advantage of this. EE is also shipping out of the UK on the PM.
Wow, thanks for the support Jonathan. We are at about $140k now so only 10k more and I'll put the thick player boards in at least for the first print run of the game for you guys!
