Purpose: To alleviate the cost of postage on Kickstarter by teaming up to buy multiple copies

Use: Add Kickstarter games you're interested in and (hopefully) others will join up in a "bulk" buy. Always helps to contact the designer/publisher as most of them are receptive (in my experience) to setting something up if you're buying multiple copies.

Probably a good idea to work out nitty-gritty details beforehand too. Not exhaustive list below:
- who's paying and when
- how and when are the other people expected to pay for their share
- how are the special rewards (if any) going to be allocated
- who will get their names in the rulebook (if such reward is limited to one)
- how will the additional copies reach the other buyers

All I can think of at the moment but there are definitely more points that should be covered.

I've backed (and received) Flash Point: Fire Rescue, Mayday's Get Bit! +Get Bit! Sharkspansion and Eaten by Zombies!. I've been very pleased with what I've got, with Flashpoint having the best production values I've seen for a while in a game (KS or not). Still bummed I missed out on D-Day Dice so I thought this Geeklist might help.

1. Board Game: Gunship: First Strike! [Average Rating:6.28 Overall Rank:4294]

A whole heap of extra stuff already included due to smashing the early stretch goals. Initial target was $8500 and they are at over $40k with still 38 days to go.

Details on the Kickstarter Campaign. Check it out!

I wasn't uber keen at first since it was a two player game but it has since been upgraded to four players so, essentially, two game for the price of one?

International shipping is US$20, no multiple copies pledge level but I'm sure something can be worked out if
Payment: I'm happy to put up my credit card for that
Delivery: People can pick up their copies in Auckland (CBD or West Auckland). If we have a reasonable number of Aucklanders, I'll be happy to do a delivery round once the copies are in the country We'll have to arrange postage for those further afield.

Anyway, I'm looking at pledging at the Gunship Crewman level for the extra promo decks. But there is also Hangar Crew for just the game at $40.

PLEDGE $40

► HANGAR CREW - This Level gets you a copy of Gunship: First Strike! and Free Shipping to any US destination. No Promos but you WILL get any added Components due to us hitting Stretch Goals! Also includes the Wallpaper Access and an upgraded plaque in our Hall of Heroes & Martyrs on the EPG website. International Backers, please add 20 dollars for additional shipping (10 dollars for Canada) NOTE: All Reward Levels that contain a copy of the game include pre-release! You will get your game and promos well ahead of the general public and before any shows, etc.
Estimated Delivery: Aug 2012


PLEDGE $55

► GUNSHIP CREWMAN - This Level gets you one copy of Gunship: First Strike! PLUS two MINI-EXPANSIONS, Gunship: Asteroids! and Gunship: Crewmates! You can read details about these two great expansions in the left-hand column of this page. Of course, you will also be entitled to any extra Components that are added as a result of Stretch Goals, and all of the Wallpapers. You'll get an official medal next to your name in the Hall of Heroes & Martyrs and Free Shipping to the USA. International Backers please add 20 dollars (10 dollars for Canada)

The group deal isn't astounding, but international shipping only $5 for any of the levels anyway.

So this is more of a recommendation of a good buy (if you're interested in it) than a group-buy request.

Sitting on the fence on this one. Really drawn to the artwork and the interesting take on the different advancements. Would be great to make it to 8 but I'd be in for the 4 copies pledge.

Single copy (no frills) pledge is $55 (with shipping)

2 copies + 2 prints: $115 or $57.5 pp

4 copies + 4 Mini-Expansion Sets + 4 Artist Signed Prints: $170 or $42.5pp

8 copies + 8 Mini-Expansion Sets + 2 x 4 Artist Signed Prints: $325 or $40.625 pp

8 days to go

Ok, this looks really good and polished.

Can't wait to get out on my boat! Setting off with your crew, salty wind in your face, ocean spray washing on the deck. A hold full of fish and hoping to make it big once you land. Now, that's the life!

(I was going to mention something about poor fishery management, imminent collapse of several stocks and environmental damage... but i won't)

Seriously, group option at $90 for four copies of everything and free postage worldwide. Takers?

I've already got the base game of this and have pledged already for the expansion only option. Anybody else in the Auckland region (cause shipping will be cheaper if you buy yourself if you are from anywhere else) wanting to join me?

Game + Expansion = 20 USD +shipping (base $10 + $2.50 per game)

So far I two friends interested and I also want to get The Impossible Machine card game they have on offer so the shipping cost at the moment is $5 per game.

This is a light, silly, fun game. A work colleague tracked it down in Oz for his kids after looking at my copy, it's a real hit.

Ground Floor (kickstarter link)

This looks like a cool worker placement/economic engine game.

And what's more - there are PnP files so you can print it up and try it out yourself! I have already printed out a copy.

If it hits the top stretch reward of $75000, a whole different game will be thrown in as a bonus. Crazy!

Currently it is at $43,000. Closes 1:50am, Wed Jun 6 (NZ time). (Funding goal was $15000).

Bulk buy option is for 6 games (including all bonuses, and shipped) for US$260 - which is US$43.33 per game.

There is also a pickup at Essen option that I am looking at - but if we can get a group together then it is (a) cheaper for me and (b) less I have to fit in my luggage!

EDIT: Not sure if anyone still reads this list but there is 18 hours to go and the game has smashed through the top stretch goal, so another game from the same designer (Skyline) will be included for free!

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/110752?a=478717

It's an Indigogo campaign from the same company that published Drum Roll, which I really enjoy (I preordered it from Greece last year).

I plan pledge whether I find people to share with or not.

Couple of pledge options:

4 x games (combo of Briefcase or Amongst the Stars) for 55 USD each

Or

2 x games (combo of Briefcase or ATS) for 60USD

There are a few other options but I expect the above will fit best.

Indigogo pledges operate differently from Kickstarter, the moment I pledge the money is taken out of my account so don't have to worry too much about the exchange rate changing for the worst partway through the campaign.

Campaign ends July 31st but I would prefer to sort this out sooner just in case the exchange rate gets worse.

This can be yours via a great deal offered through Seriouslyboard.co.nz

A late Kickstarter for Kiwis. IF we get a number of orders


Geneva, 1920: The League of Nations convenes for the first time. Proud to be the host for this august world body, Switzerland invites its champion axe-juggling troupe, Les Bella Lieben Jolie De Von Giorno, to entertain the assembled delegates. Unfortunately, halfway through the demonstration, the Troupe goes insane and begins hurling axes into the audience, splitting head after head. The Secretary General calls for calm, but before he can order a recess, his cranium is split as well.

The remaining Great Powers use the confusion to pass the gavel between themselves, conduct international business amidst the chaos, and generally try to shift the balance of world power while escaping a bunch of armed psychopaths.

OMGTAAIMH is on its way to the printers and will be available in October 2012!
Game Company No. 3 is accepting pre-orders at their site http://gamecompany3.com/products.php and is holding a pre-release sale until September 7th: $10 under MSRP, with free US shipping.

I've been interested in picking up The Resistance for a while. This seems like a fine opportunity to do so.

The $100 level gets 3 copies of both The Resistance and The Resistance: Avalon ($30 shipping). That works out to ~NZ$55 per pair of games inc shipping to NZ.

Based on comments, Travis is open to arranging bigger orders too.

Edit: Travis replied with:

yes, add the sum of the pledges together and I will cap international shipping at $60 per order.

This game looks very cool, check the couple of videos on the KS page.
I tend not to put too much faith in the "paid" reviews but the description of the mechanics of the game is rather interesting.

I really want this but the shipping costs are just killing me.
Best offer listed is US$120 +$50 for three copies, making it $56.7 per game, which sounds a lot more affordable imho.

So yeah, I'm a total sucker (pun almost unintended) for water-related games (e.g. bought the Giant Squid expansion for Survive a whole year before actually buying the game )


The modular board looks awesome. And there is a group buy reward level that gives us four copies for $140+$50 so US$47.5 for each copy.

Any takers?

Ok I know I need to pull back on buying more games... But I was impressed by the presentation. They did a good video overview and then a long half hour one for those who want all the details! They enabled me to meet the promise to myself that I had to read the rules of a game or watch a decent video that gave me a good understanding about it before adding another to my to-be-played pile.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jameystegmaier/viticultu...

I've already pledged but can up it to a higher pledge if there is enough interest.

1 copy + 1 copy of the kick starter expansion USD69.00 (what I've chosen).
2 copies + 2 copies of the kickstarter expansion USD49.50 per person.
6 copies + 6 copies of the kick starter expansion USD38.16 per person (updated correct cost)

I live in Auckland, so even if you are in Chch and need it posted down it will be cheaper going in together than singly (like I'm currently doing).

So far the interest is:

Me x 1
Simon Woodward x 2 (only if the 6-pack)
Pierre Rebstock x 2. (but willing to give one up for a late comer to the party)
Lyz Reid x 1

Round two for this game on Kickstarter. Already funded this time

A pretty meaty group buy option: US$230 for 6 copies, free intl delivery so just over $38 each. Now that i look at it again, I'm not 100% sure that includes the mini-expansion and stretch goals. I'll inquire if we have takers.

I've already pledged on the early bird level but will change if needed.

The best thing since sliced bread, if you lived in a post-apocalyptic wasteland with no sliced bread.

This game looks really interesting - talk about a fresh new theme!

Competitive eating in a ppost-apocalyptic world - eat weird stuff for glory, but it you are forced to eat a card you don't have room in your mouth for - you spew it out and your competitor can eat it for even more glory!

The 6-bundle is the most cost-effective, works out to $30 USD each delivered.

Ok, that's one expensive beastie.... but soooo cool cool

"Best" Price is US$125 + $50 shipping for two copies, so $87.5 or NZD106 (yikes!)

UPDATE: There is now a 6-games pledge level for $390 + $30 shipping (tbc) so $70 or NZD85.

I can say i'm tapped out (finally) and can't quite justify spending over 100 bucks on a KS game but there might be others interested so i thought i'd list it here.

UPDATE: If we can get the numbers, I'm in!

Be aware that if you end up getting a copy, i may have to show up on your doorstep to try out the game

Check it out on Kickstarter

I thought I'd add that one just in case enough people are interested. I'm trying (and failing miserably) to curtail my KS spending but I'd kick (no pun intended) myself if there were actually people keen for a group buy.
And there are only 5 days to go as i post this, so i think i'm safe

So here are the options:
2 copies: $90 + $55 = $72.5 or NZD88.5 (not interested at that price)
4 copies: $160 + $65 = $56.25 or NZD68.6 (will jump in if a fourth is needed)
8 copies: $280 + $130 = $51.25 or NZD62.5
