Have a question?
The pledge manager is via BackerKit.
Once you have completed your survey it will become closed and you will only be able to edit your shipping address.
The "staying open" update is for those who have not yet filled it in.
Is the pledge manager via Backerkit? I got an email for a survey which directed me to backerkit and filled out my order. But now with the update saying the pledge manager will stay open I am a bit confused since when I go to Backerkit it's closed.
Hi Justin, the next charge date will be Friday 29th June.
So is there going to be another date that Backers get charged again?
The latest version of the Vadoran Gardens rulebook is now online and feedback would be appreciated! It wont be long until this goes off to print and we wont be able to make any further modifications.
Zac Nelson: So if your card is charged on Friday can you still buy things from the pledge manager
If your card is charged, then your account will be marked locked by default. However I am able to unlock accounts and add items after this if you message me, so it would still be possible to add more.
Note. If you've not yet completed your survey then your account wont be locked.

Hi Marco, The KS pack is included in the Deluxe Edition. So it would only be the Big Box / Art Book from The City of Kings, and Vadoran Gardens which is our new standalone game.
If I have a deluxe first ks edition and world pack, what am I missing to have all content? Ks pack, big box and art book only right?
Leonardo Russo: hi frank, i had update my pledge few days ago buying the delude base and the side quest pack, but the amount has not been charged in my credit card... is this normal?
Hi Leonardo, this is normal. BackerKit don't charge credit cards straight away, the first payment will be processed on Friday 15th June.
Thank you Frank! I‘m convinced now and PM is done 😁

and thank you Ronald!
Thank you Blaine !
Sandra: I still don't know if I want the bigger box. I pledged for the World Pack. Does it come in 6 different boxes as shown in the pictures? If so, I'd rather get the big box that can hold everything.
The world packs come in 4 boxes, some of the photos show both the front/back of the boxes as they are double sided, but it's 4 in total.
@frank west. Thank you! Hoping until July because batman's all-in shipping cost killed me.
So I just got the base game and the side quests pack. Being Canadian, the deluxe upgrade and extra characters really added up so I figured I’d save $140 and “make due” with the base game stories and scenarios. Adding in the PNP scenarios from this campaign bumps up the content too. If I’m really into the game when I get it then hopefully I can order this stuff later.

@Frank, it would be great if you teamed up with e.g. Folded Space for a customized insert in your next Kickstarter project. I would happily invest in it to get everything nicely organized. :-)
@René Schultze Yes, the trays are part of my pledge. I went all-in! I'm really excited to get it to the table in early 2019.
@Vince: I played TCoK once solo and it was nice. But I played it multiple times with four players and I like it much better because the coop factor of the game is brilliant and more fun with other player. I wish you therefore luck that you will get one of your players at the table. It’s worth the effort. And if you have the trays the game didn’t look so intimidating anymore ;)
@René Schultze Good to know. I'll be more likely playing this game entirely solo (with multiple characters) but i will present it to my gaming group and see how it goes. Hope they won't get too intimidated by the amount of content and complexity, but one of my group is an avid MMORPG fan (like me and Frank) so this could punch a lot of his buttons and bring him to commit some gaming sessions into learning it. That would be great.
@Vince: It was only a joke. You don’t need more dice. Ok, I‘m the Bringer of Dice... ;)
But as you said the game is a big beast and with more dice you can put one set on one end of the table and on the other end. It could be more comfortable.
@René Schultze Sorry. Didn't mean any offence. tbh, i am seriously considering getting an extra set of dice and Vadoran Gardens. This little game looks very good and at that point with all the money i invested in TcoK, i'd rather have everything, if only for lore and easter eggs (and the great art!). Perhaps if my wife plays vadoran gardens first, she'll want to play this majetic beast that is TcoK. Question is, through regular sessions of TcoK, does it occur often that certain rolls require more dice than those that come with the game? or perhaps it is best in a game with the maximum number of players so we don't keep passing the dice across the table.
@Vince: Only almost? ;)
Those dice, they look great. I almost bought an extra set.
@frank Perfect! Thanks again! Congrats on the amazing campaign, can't wait to play!
Hi Jenna, I am happy to send out an update on Kickstarter before we do the first charge to make sure people are aware :)
For the people who added on items on backerkit, will we get some notice on when our cards will be charged, I didn't realize they were not charging right away.
Justin "Vex" Brissette: So Frank after the PM closes what is the timeline for how soon until the games are going to be shipped out to us, the backers?
The current timeline puts shipping at January, and I am confident we will hit this. The next few weeks are the busy/hard part of the project as we get all the files to our manufacturers and checked. By the end of June I will put out a more detailed timeline showing the various points we need to get through and keep people updated as the year progresses!

@Cosmic: Dice! You want to have them! :)
Frank: oh I see. Thanks for confirming then.
Done! Thank you very much! Can’t wait to get my table ready for this! Woot! 🤓
Duncan Chua Han Kiat: I just upgraded my city of kings and world packs to city of kings deluxe and world packs on the backing kit but it doesn’t show the extra items I will be receiving. Is this normal? I would really like to have the extra items on the that pledge level. Do let me know so I can complete my backing kit as soon as possible :) thanks!
Hi Duncan, your shopping cart on BackerKit should show you the items you have purchased. When you get to the "Confirm" screen where it asks for payment information and shows your balance, scroll to the bottom of the page. It will say "Pledge Items" and "Addon-on" items and show everything you have selected.
As long as it says "The City of Kings + Deluxe Upgrade + World Packs" then you have the right items, it wont always show the breakdown of the contents.
Cosmic Beard: Can anyone who's played comment on if the extra dice are needed/improve the game/are worth it?
They aren't needed, you wont have a situation where you need to roll more dice than our included in the game. Some people however like to have multiple sets of dice on the table, which is why the extra dice exist :)
Jérôme Quelin: Uh? World pack afaik is a pledge level that includes the minis...
There is a "World Packs" tier which includes all 4 world packs, but the 2 Character Packs, Side Quest Pack and Hero Pack are all individual World Packs you can pick and choose as addons.
Jérôme Quelin: Just to be clear: I have a create your own pledge with the 2 character packs and the side quests. Will it come with upgrade pack?
Yes, you have selected 3 of the 4 world packs so you will receive the upgrade kit.

Hi Jérôme, as long as you are choosing at least one world pack then you will get the upgrade pack. It sounds like you are (if you're choosing all but the minis) so you will receive it :)
Franck : in last update you say that every world pack will get upgrade pack automatically included but what about create your own pledges with everything in the world pack but the minis?
Hi Jacek Bolisega,
They have all been sent out, if you check the update I just sent out (update 16) there is some information on what to do.
I did not receive e-mail with BackerKit link yet. Is sending those emails still on-going?
Justin "Vex" Brissette: Sadly I wish the PM could stay open until July 14. Is there any way that the PM could be extended another few weeks or so?
Currently we can only confirm it will be open until at least the end of June. Towards the end of the month we will be able to let you know how much longer it will stay open. You'll have at least a weeks notice before it closes and most likely more.

Lionel Rode: Hi Frank, I have received the survey however the shipping cost is not correct. I live on the Isle of Man and shipping should be very similar to the UK however these pledge managers always seem to quote IOM as a "Rest of the world" location as the costs is £40.00. Could you please get this amended on BackerKit? Many thanks in advance 😀
Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I wasn't aware that BackerKit didn't include Isle of Man within the region. I have now updated BackerKit's shipping settings and this should be corrected for you.
I'm very sorry for any troubles caused!
Ronald L.: I don't know if this has already been asked but how long will the PM be open? Tnx
Until at least the end of June, once June finished we'll send an update with a better idea of the closing date.
