We have some big news. Many of you may be aware that we are planning on launching our next Kickstarter soon – next Monday, July 17th.
While the new Kickstarter campaign will not be live until Monday, July 17th, we are publishing this link to the Kickstarter project preview page for you. Please feel free to share with friends and any others!

Free credit for those on CW: Onslaught Two!
We want to offer you a thank you for your patience and long-suffering through the recent (and for some, still ongoing) shipping adventure for THIS campaign of CW: Onslaught Two. While much of it was due to things beyond our control - such as the month long US customs debacle or our factory misallocating various certain SKUs in the wrong containers for shipping – we are nevertheless the ones who must take responsibility.
We deliberated a long time over the best way to make this up to you, and finally settled on a simple fix that we believe you will love:
After the CW O3 KS is over, when the pledge manager opens, we will import all your emails from THIS Kickstarter (Onslaught Two). Then, we will apply a free credit to that email that you can use towards any add-on or even your shipping cost. (You can’t really use it on your pledge level since that will already be charged via Kickstarter itself).
Future Shipping Prices
We understand that there was also a lot of frustration over the shipping prices last year. As it turns out, we actually still undershot the full cost (though not by much) of shipping CW O2. Some of this was due to the re-shipment of products that is ongoing (such as sending freight to Australia from Europe and US). But even when you painstakingly account for all types of shipping costs the sheer complexity and size of shipping CW O2 made us undercount our final bills.
That said, we understand that it is never fun to pay high shipping prices on a Kickstarter, even when getting many large and heavy boxes. As a result, we are modifying how we account for and charge shipping. We haven’t fully settled on the prices yet, but you should expect shipping prices in CW O3 that are lower than you might otherwise anticipate based on CW O2.
As usual, for most countries we will cover all VAT and related expenses so you only make 1 payment to us and then it will be shipped to your door without you having to pay anything else at that time.
I hope you will join us in this next effort!
Yours in Madness,
Sandy, Ian, Arthur, and the entire Petersen Games Team!
