      Hi Giraffe! I haven’t received the email with the pledge manager. Checked my spam, but no email there either. Could you send it again?

      Thanks @creator 😊

      @Padraig: the tokens aren’t necessary, just upgrades if you want them!

      @Will Esgro: I’m glad you like it! I try to make it easy for everyone.

      Sorry. I haven't been following along as much as I should.
      What's the idea of the add on book tokens? Do I need them?
      Just wondering. I haven't added them yet.😊

      I love how you are updating the image with current project progress! It's similar to the way Roxley updates, but I don't even have to click the project link. The info is right there! This is the best update system I've seen on Kickstarter to date!

      @Mini Mee That is correct that all tokens can be gotten for $25.

      We don't currently have a final side by side comparison, as the box is still being developed. The blue stain, however, will be that blue and the natural wood will look the color of the other pictures, without the stain. We hope to have the box finalized after we get back from Origins, then we'll have pictures of each.

      @Dorte Colin is correct.

      @Colin Thanks for answering the question!

      Dorte, my understanding is that the standard game comes with the mini expansion. It's just that one of the stretch goals was to make the mini expansion work with the different tokens.

      Didn't get a survey, but it worked when I requested a new one.

      I have one question, I was under the assumption that the mini expansion came with all pledge levels, but when I read closely, I have to add on some meeples to get this expansion, is this right?

    11. Mini Mee on

      @WGG - I think I figured it out in PM. While it says in the listing "laser book tokens" come with my pledge because we unlocked a SG (I had forgotten) that we actually get the Jumbo Laser or Meeple Source w/ the Ultra Edition. To get all 3 I have to add the regular laser set $10 and the one I don't pick with my Ultra $15. So $25 to get all 3 sets.

      And I did find a picture of the blue-stained box, just haven't seen the plain wood box to see how it looks. So my prior post is just reduced to 1 picture if possible. (Unless if I am not spelling out the tokens purchases correctly).

    12. Mini Mee on

      Hi @WGG! I backed the Ultra Edition with the wooden box (your welcome) and saw in the PM it asked if I wanted the wood or blue finish. Without pics to compare it makes it difficult to choose. Can you direct us to a side-by-side comparison?

      Also, with this pledge am I correct that I receive the regular sized book tokens but can get the 2 other types (jumbo laser and meeple source $15) giving me all 3 types of tokens available so we can mix things up from time to time.

      Thank you!

      @Tagapayo We'll line up a library for every gift, unless you have one you want to suggest. Thanks for checking!

      @weirdgirraffe, did we need to line up a library first to send a gift to them? I forgot how that worked now. Thank you!

      Hey all, we have a KS board game Discord with a really great community. All sorts of chatter about many KS games with people who spend entirely too much money backing KS games. If you can relate...or want to relate, come join us! Everybody is welcome. https://discord.gg/f2B69uK

      How about 'Lone Librarian' or 'Introvert's delight' for the solo variant?

      @Miles: the KS App won’t let you see everything and is very limited. You’ll have to use a computer or stick to reading the updates, where I’ll always post the latest status.

      So Im wanting to purchase two copies of fire in the library, So I've paid a total $44 and no shipping cost has been paid or added. Am I needing to manually add $10 for shipping? because it hasnt charged me for shipping.

      @Tracy Gentry You'll be able to add the add-ons in the pledge manager. I'm not sure when it'll go out, but you'll have at least a month to fill it out.

    39. Tracy Gentry on

      @weird giraffe games will there be a deadline to how long we can wait before adding the addons? I’d like to add the meeple but can’t till next payday.

      Thanks to everyone for the congrats! We're all so happy the campaign did so well and we're really grateful for all of your support. I've updated the main image with the project status so that you'll always have an easy answer for where we are in the project and I hope to get a update out this weekend!

      @John du Bois Yep, we'll have a pledge manager where you can add the things, if you want!

      @Gary Page The gifts will mostly go to libraries in the US, but if you're willing to pay a bit of the shipping, we can talk about sending some to other parts of the world!

      @METADNA There will be no score pad in the game. I can see about having the score board be double sided, but that would be an additional cost.

      @Porkuslime The Meeple Source tokens are about 20mm by 14mm and the Jumbo Laser Cut Tokens are about 23mm by 15mm.

      @Naomiooooo That's correct!

      @B The Add-Ons should fit in the box. The add-ons do require extra shipping for international backers, but you will be told that in the pledge manager and it should be more clear there. There's three token add-on options, but you don't need them to play the game. The gifts are for US Libraries. If you want your gift to go internationally, please send us a message and we can talk about adding in addition costs, as shipping outside the US is more expensive. Did that answer all your questions?

      @Cassandra McGillivray Yes, that is correct. If you didn't, it'll ask for it in the pledge manager.

      @Weird Giraffe Games: i mean is it possible to have a score pad with the same artwork (predominantly blue) as on the cards ? why not a double printed scorepad with current artwork and on the other side the card artwork. Congrats
