Get a copy of the game before the rest of the world! If you don't want to keep the game for your self, give it as a gift! Backing at this tier or above gets you access to the pledge manager for add-on's.
You not only want TOP TALE for yourself, but you are the kind of person that likes to pay it forward. When you back this tier, you'll get the game TOP TALE sent to you, and I will send a copy to a school, youth center, hospital, senior center, or public institution. I won't make profit on the donated copy, but it will allow me to justify higher ordering volumes, which reduces cost.
In the pledge manager, you can choose to donate to one of the featured charities, or designate your own. Shipping a donated copy outside of the US will incur additional shipping charges, applied in the pledge manager, based on the destination country. I will not profit from the donated copies.
Get a game and give a game, then immortalize yourself through coming up with the content for a card to be sold in mass production. You'll work with the game developer to come up with a topic and a caption that reflects you. Your card will then be introduced in one of the first couple of decks to hit the market! We'll even put your name on the card! (Card content must be appropriate.... at least for the mainstream game. Your card may not appear in the first volume, but it will be in subsequent volumes of the game, which you will also receive.)
We will send you five decks of the standard versions of TOP TALE (for your friends)! After TOP TALE gets big, we will send you a copy of every deck that we produce FOR-EV-ER! We're not planning to stop at just one or two game volumes, but plan to have a long series of TOP TALE games and expansions. You'll be added to a list of those that will receive each release before the general public gets their hands on it. Who knows, with inflation and all, $250 dollars now to get every game we ever make, and all the goodies up front, is probably a better investment than hoarding toilet paper. We will even allow this to be inheritable, so you can pass it on to your spawn.
