Risks and challenges
Brain Conceptual will manufacture “The Fantasy Backgammons” collection in our own manufacturing unit. As with any Kickstarter campaign, there is a slight risk involved when you decided to support a creator. Though, we have been designing, manufacturing and distributing products since 1978 and have good working relationships with our suppliers, so we hope you see this risk as very minimal.
We are aiming to get your Fantasy Backgammons to you at the end of April 2018.
