Frequently Asked Questions
Why can't I order Xtreme Editions of Dinosaur Island, Dinosaur Island Totally Liquid or Duelosaur Island?
Since the last Dinosaur Island Kickstarter campaign, we’ve moved to a new factory and they’ve done incredible work with us on dozens of production runs over the last two years.
However, because of that move, we would have had to reintroduce the new factory to every individual item, reproduce every mold and recreate every pack-out from the previous campaigns. Ultimately, this would have taken much needed bandwidth away from the factory to focus on Dinosaur World and Rawr n Write. After much thought out discussion, we realized it was not worth sacrificing any attention to detail that may be taken away from our brand new babies.
We spent a lot of time exploring this option, but we ultimately decided that Dinosaur World and Dinosaur Island: Rawr ’n Write deserved everyone’s full attention.
We’re very excited to be working with them on the campaign and we’re confident that they’re going to knock it out of the park!Last updated:
Will Xtreme Editions of Dinosaur Island, Dinosaur Island Totally Liquid or Duelosaur Island be available in the future?
We don’t have immediate plans to re-release these editions, but we’ll never say never!Last updated:
**Timed Exclusives** are stretch goals that will be included for no extra charge in all pledges that include the associated game or add-on (i.e. all Dinosaur World timed exclusives will be included in all pledges that include Dinosaur World at no extra cost).
Timed Exclusives will be available directly from Pandasaurus Games at a later date at limited quantities. These will not be widely available through distribution, but will be available for purchase at key conventions (such at Gen Con and Essen) and our website.
**Kickstarter Exclusives** are only available during this campaign and will never be sold at conventions, on our website or directly in the future. These are true exclusives for Kickstarter backers during this campaign. We may make them available again in a future Kickstarter campaign, but no plans currently exist for future Dinoverse Kickstarter campaigns.Last updated:
Only English editions of Dinosaur World and Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write will be available during this campaign. No localization partners have signed on either game at this time.Last updated:
We will have a vacuum formed plastic tray in the Kickstarter and retail versions of both Dinosaur World and Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write!
On top of the plastic insert we are including, we have partnered with the wonderful team at The Broken Token to design a wooden insert for Dinosaur World!
This insert will be available to pre-order and purchase directly through their site after this campaign ends, with their insert orders shipping around the same time as we are fulfilling backers’ games.Last updated:
We are still in the early stages of production, as we won’t be sending the files to the printer until after the campaign is over and the pledge manager is closed. We’ll be working closely with our factory to create a plastic insert, with the goal of having a space for every component. However it’s too early to promise that this insert will also fit the expansion items. We’ll keep backers informed throughout the process, but know we have also partnered with The Broken Token to create a wooden insert that will be designed to accommodate the three expansions as well.Last updated:
Extra paper pads will be available for purchase in the pledge manager and through our website, along with a free .pdf download on our website.Last updated:
We looked into dry-erase sheets but found that the markers would not work well on the player sheet with the level of small detail needed for gameplay. Instead, there will be a Companion App that completely removes the need for pen and paper.Last updated:
The Companion App is designed to work with the physical edition of Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write and is intended to replace the writing pads with a drag and drop interface to play the game. The app also automates some processes like calculating your income, spending DNA for making Dinosaurs, threat and security increases - among other things to streamline the gameplay experience!
A physical copy of Dinosaur Island: Rawr 'n Write is required for use. This app is not a stand-alone digital version of Rawr 'n Write and does not have AI or online play.
It’s still in development; as of right now it is for a single player. We'll explore options with the developer and assess the feasibility of other players.Last updated:
Yes, you will be able to add the Space Raptor promo in the pledge manager for $15.Last updated:
No, the unique artwork is purely aesthetic with no gameplay changes.Last updated:
Our goal is for the average shipping costs for backers in the EU, UK, US, Canada, Australia and China to be under 20 USD, with shipping for backers outside of these regions to come from the most cost-effective area for the lowest possible shipping price.
We can only give our best estimate on shipping costs as there are a variety of factors involved, such as standard annual rate increases, COVID-related fees, and final weights depending on unlocked stretch goals.
Extra weight via add-ons will increase shipping costs, but we do not expect the increases to be significant.Last updated:
You'll need to pledge at the $5 level or higher to get access to the pledge manager. Backing at least one game (DW or R&W) while the campaign is live will grant you the discounted backer pricing. Otherwise all tiers will be $5 more expensive in the PM.
Example: Back at $5 level during campaign --> "The Works" pledge level will be $130 instead of $125 in the pledge manager.Last updated:
- Set of 16 extra Jeeples for DW ($5)
- Extra pads of player sheets for R&W ($ TBD)
- Metal Coins for DW ($15)
- Space Raptor promo for Dinosaur Island ($15)Last updated:
