About

The goal of our 2019 fundraising campaign is simple - to keep The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast moving 'Full Steam Ahead' with weekly tabletop gaming audio and video media. To do this to full capacity, we need to raise enough funds to keep Jamie in the full time position of producer and editor of our content. Please check out the video below for a full explanation of our goals!

At our "Full Steam Ahead" goal, the Founders and Lords will continue to create weekly audio podcast content releasing like clockwork, waiting for you before you get out of bed every Wednesday morning, featuring board, card, miniatures and role-playing game content that's entertaining, informative and irreverent, just like we have for the past 8 years.

 In 2018 the gang listened to your feedback and kicked the YouTube channel into high gear. We're dedicated to bringing you high quality, entertaining and informative regular video content each week on YouTube. From the wacky nonsense of the Steve and Friends Show,  bringing the podcast to you in video form with The Chris, Jamie and Steve Show, to lists, reviews and video essays, we will continue to produce it all and more.


In addition to a year's wealth of content from The Secret Cabal, we have a plethora of awesome physical and digital rewards you will receive for pledging to our 2019 fundraiser. Many of the pledge levels include bundles of these rewards but nearly all of them will also be available as add-ons in our pledge manager that will release after the closing of the campaign. 

There is a pledge level called "Add-on's Only" for those who would like to create their own bundles of the rewards. 

To best aid in the funding of this campaign to it's "Full Steam Ahead" status, it would help us if you added funds to your pledge here on Kickstarter during this campaign. The added funds will be applied as a credit when the pledge manager launches. But no worries, if you'd prefer to wait, you can always add more in the pledge manager post campaign. It just helps us achieve success more when done here.

The Legacy Promo Pack includes a bunch of the promos from our 2017 and 2018 Kickstarter campaigns. All of the below promo cards are available at the $45 Legacy Promo Pack level and as an add-on item (but not included in the higher pledge bundles).

Gen Con Dinner Details!

The Gen Con Dinner will be held Friday, August 2nd in Indianapolis, IN during Gen Con. The location has not been selected yet. I will keep backers updated as location and times become available! 

BGG Con Dinner Details!

The BGG Con Dinner will be held Friday, November 22nd in Dallas, TX during BGG Con Prime. The location has not been selected yet. I will keep backers updated as location and times become available! 

WHAT ABOUT DELIVERY DATES?

The delivery dates for pledge levels may vary based on the reward being provided. We set the delivery date of all physical rewards to January 2020 as in the past 2 years, that is when we were able to have collected, packaged and shipped all items. Though we are beholden to the timetables of manufacturers and publishers providing promotion items, we will do everything we can to expedite the rewards fulfillment and get everything out sooner than quoted.

Some deliveries dates will be sooner:

  • Gloomhaven Digital Scenario "Secrets of the Lost Cabal" will be delivered immediately following the closing of the pledge manager. (Likely June 2019)
  • Grand Adventures Digital Edition will be delivered immediately following the closing of the pledge manager. (Likely June 2019)
  • Gloomhaven Digital Scenario "Revenge of the Lost Cabal" will be delivered as soon as it's complete which will be prior to physical rewards fulfillment. 
  • Game Topper Cabal Game Mats will ship following the closing of the pledge manager. (Likely July 2019)

WHAT ABOUT SHIPPING COSTS?

Shipping is the most difficult part of running any Kickstarter. We are running this project to facilitate making as much content as we can and too many campaigns have been sunk by botched shipping. Each pledge level including physical rewards will have a shipping and handling cost added to it. 

  • US Shipping: $5 ($4 for just promos)
  • Canadian Shipping: $13 ($10 for just promos)
  • Everywhere Else: $15 ($14 for just promos)

Shipping For Add-Ons
    In the post-campaign pledge manager, shipping costs will be added per add-on item based on size and destination.

We very much appreciate your understanding as we are attempting to minimize our risk and make sure you get all your goodies! 


NOTE ABOUT BACKER LIMITS: So you may notice that there are actually limits on a the backer levels. The reason this is is that the reward promos are donated by publishers and they only have the ability to provide a certain number of them to us. We cant exceed those limits. So we have those limits imposed on all the levels that receive promos and the Game Topper mats. If by some strange and amazing circumstance we completely run out of the items during this campaign, we will continue with backer levels sans-promos. It's a good problem to have I suppose. 

Risks and challenges

Really the only risk involved with any of this are your normal every day risks of life. I fully plan to continue working day in and day out on the content promised in this Kickstarter but health, accidents or general emergencies are the only things that I think could stop me from the duties I've chosen to take on with this project. Honestly, I'm stretching here to find some risks involved with backing this project... but you know... the "Risks and challenges" section was here with an empty form field so I filled it out.
