Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
@Michael - Just sent you a link via direct message.
I also haven't received a link for the survey.
@Sonya - Just sent you a direct message with a link to your survey :)
I don't believe I was given a survey to fill out.
All good, thanks for considering :)
@Paco - Unfortunately, since Sabotage will be released after Getaway Driver comes out, we cannot offer it in the pledge manager. The logistics of holding your copy of Getaway Driver while waiting for Sabotage to arrive would lead to too many potential problems.
@jeff any chance for us to add Sabotage through PM? I am happy to wait until everything finishes... lol
@Joe - We will absolutely send out an update several days before the survey closes. Our plan is to keep it open for as long as possible, so if addresses change, backers will be able to keep their information up to date. We won't close it before the end of the year.
@Random Obfuscation - We are still working with the manufacturer to determine if we can provide a functional and attractive helicopter stand. At this point, it looks like the cost is fairly reasonable, so as long as we can find a good shape, it will be a go. I'll definitely make a formal announcement once we arrive at a conclusion.
@Creator or whoever,
Would it be doable to release an update when the end of the survey is approaching?
During the campaign it was mentioned getting clear stands for the helicopter meeples was being looked into (as a potential add-on I think). I tried re-opening my survey (a while ago) but didn't see anything new. Is that still potentially going on, did I look too early, or was that determined to be not feasible for this project?
P.S. Really looking forward to the release!
@ekster - The tiles will be 51mm x 51mm (roughly 2" x 2")
Do we know the size of the tiles? I like things sleeved :)
@Jim The four-player variant will work with any 2 copies of the game, no extra additions required. We don't have any Kickstarter exclusives - we prefer to deliver the best possible experience to everyone :) Backing on Kickstarter just gets you the lowest price point.
Thanks...is the sleeve the only add...meaning if I later just go get a different set at retail I won't be missing anything? Other than the sleeve I didn't see any KSE stuff but I haven't been paying a lot of attention.
@ Jim Todd You can reopen your pledge and add a second set and the sleeve if you want. I'm currently trying to decide if I'd really ever play this game 4 player or not, but for now I've reopened my pledge while I decide.
Can I edit/add a second set for 4 player, or is it too late?
Nevermind, I did do it. I missed one recently and now I'm all paranoid.
Never got an email however was able to log into crowdox and got it :-)
I haven't received a survey email either. Checked spam folder also.
@Bob - Great suggestion! I'm hoping it is blindingly obvious that the pledge manager doesn't have final art :)
@Sonya - If you can't find the email, you can use this link to access the pledge manager: https://app.crowdox.com/retrieve/uproarious/getaway-driver
Dual-box sleeve order. Very nice touch at a great price! Maybe Ryan can pull off a side chase scene on the sleeve? Maybe the getaway vehicle on the right leading the way followed by every police vehicle chasing close behind?
Sonya, it should be an email from CrowdOx
I don't believe I received a survey. I even checked online instead of the app, and don't see the survey section as I do on other projects I backed.
Just seen the update. Great news!
@GSM - Just posted an update with that exact information. Dual-box sleeves are now available in the pledge manager.
Hey Jeff, if I ordered one box through the regular campaign and another through the pledge manager will I still get the sleeve/ big box? (If those are still happening)
Thanks alot, want to make sure I'm ready
Cards are typical poker size - 63x88mm (roughly 2.5" x 3.5")
Tiles are 51x51mm (roughly 2")
What are the card and tile sizes, please?
@Matthew - In order to keep shipping costs down, addon games will ship with Getaway Driver. If you are anxious to get one of the games in the meantime, you can pick them up from our website: www.fowers.games
@Henry - Thanks for the offer. We'd love your help and input. If you don't mind, shoot me a direct message and we'll discuss further.
@jeff thank you for keeping the survey up for a while. This is hands down my game. But I had to pledge for the pnp only right now. Because priorities. So thank you! This makes it possible for me to get this awesome game.
Apologies if this information was already posted somewhere and I missed it; for those of us who purchased 'add on' games (such as Paperback, etc), will those games be delivered at the same time as Getaway Driver, or will they be delivered earlier from existing stock?
I admit this is a weird request. Is it possible to see what the spot will look like that indicates one set from the next for separating cards in a combined game? I'd like to see it if possible to aid in the decision to upgrade to two sets.
@Ebran - You are absolutely spot on - the "white dot" from the rulebook is merely a placeholder and will absolutely be replaced. I like your suggestions of a heist on the tile. A few backers have recommended a top-down view of the tower from Burgle Bros, which is fun given the thematic connection between the two games. The tower would probably have to be adjusted a bit to fit the visuals of this game, but I'm if anyone can do it, it's Ryan Goldsberry :)
@Garry and Chris - You've got it - we'll release the pnp just as soon as we have all the art wrapped up (the longest pole in the tent). Our current estimate is to have it out by late November.
Hey @jeff. I couldn't find anything relating to this in the thread so far but my apologies if it's already been thought up.
Will the starting tile be using the "white dot" to identify as per the rule book, or is there room to adjust it? I was thinking it would be lovely to have a starter tile with a crime scene on either side from which we are getting away. Toppled brinks truck, bonds flying in the wind, broken jewelers storefront. Or maybe a where's-Waldo like heist collage tile with any number of heist aftermaths. Each city corner another crime scene.
Can NOT wait to play.
@Garry - Four days ago, Jeff commented “As the print and play will include all unlocked stretch goals and final art, we don't anticipate it will be ready for a few months. We will send an update out to all backers as soon as it is.” That suggests the pnp will be made available around six months before the physical release.
Is there any chance the pnp will be ready/released before March when the game itself is released?
@Scott - The extra cars are available at the request of several backers. They are completely optional - everything you need comes in the game.
@Rasmus - We'll keep the survey open for as long as possible - probably through the end of the year.
Awesome - thanks, Adam!
Not been following the campaign closely and just looking at my survey...
For what reasons might one want extra cars?
Do anyone know the deadline for the survey?
I'm, asking because I may want to add a few extra things, but I need to talk to some of my friends first (Wouldn't want to gift them a game, they wont want to play)
@Jeff Beck - Thanks much. It's now been added to the list.
@Ed - Sorry about that. It looks like your still on the "Hit the Gas" pledge level, which did have the old, more expensive shipping to Canada. I've gone ahead and issued a refund for the difference.
@Adam - Final count is 8 police cards + 11 driver cards + 5 event cards = 24 cards total. Cards will be standard size (63mm x 88mm). Thanks!
@pagoda79 - I'm still working with the manufacturer on the specifics of the 2-box sleeve. It will definitely happen but will probably need a few more weeks before I can make it available.
