Re: Pirates-Dinosaurs-Haunted Treasure! Don't let this game slip by! 8 SHORT days left!
8 days left and 47%. It's a tough crawl up to 100% but I'll keep my fingers crossed!

One problem is that people think it won't make it so don't bother to back it, even if they are interested. I also do think the timing was poor with both the holidays and KS fatigue. I know I've backed a dizzying amount of KS projects in 2012 and definitely have KS fatigue myself so that was the original reason I didn't back it. But thought I'd help out just in case since I like to see small publishers succeed.

Re: Pirates-Dinosaurs-Haunted Treasure! Don't let this game slip by! 6 SHORT days left!
It seems like a cool game (or at least a cool concept), but I'm reluctant to back for a myriad of reasons.

Firstly, I'm a little confused by the KS campaign - they've been taking pre-orders for this for well over a year before the campaign started, and the game has had some decent exposure on BGG in that time. Is the Kickstarter make-or-break for this game? Why turn to kickstarter now?

I'm also a little nonplussed by the artwork. I own a couple of pirate-themed games already; Pirate's Cove and Jamaica have wonderfully evocative artwork, and some parts of Sword & Skull and Rum & Pirates are decent too. But the board for PvD doesn't work for me on the same level. I honestly have difficulty visualizing it as an island, because the lack of detail in the jungle makes it look like a patch of grass to me. Too bad I got told the artwork was final when I suggested some small improvements...

Lastly, the timing for the campaign isn't great. At another time of year, I might be willing to gamble $70 on a game based purely on some sample artwork and the reputation of the designer, but it's after Christmas, money is tight, and there's a bunch of other games coming into stock about which I know fr more details and am more likely to buy.

I suspect I'm not alone in my sentiments. Well under 200 backers at the time of writing suggests there's not a lot of enthusiasm for this game anymore, and the cynic in me is wondering whether the exceptionally bad timing of the KS campaign after a lengthy pre-order window is their way of quietly burying the game without looking like jerks.

Too bad the game is confined within the States, placing an embargo elsewhere (like the UK, where I live).

We're seeing some nice momentum heading into the last few days of this campaign. We just need to continue this for the next 4 days!

Yes there are a few International levels. Not sure where the "embargo" idea came from but please take another look!

International levels

$70: One copy with shipping
$100: One "Limited Edition" copy with shipping
$135: Two copies with shipping
$275: Six copies with shipping (Canada and Europe)

Re: Pirates-Dinosaurs-Haunted Treasure! Don't let this game slip by! 4 SHORT days left!
Guys,

We just had our biggest day in funding... around $2,000. Awesome!! In the last 3 days, we've had about $3,600 in funding. As most KS campaigns have their best days at the end, I'm pretty sure we can make it!

Three more days of $2,100 per day and we will all be happy campers...


KEEP SPREADING THE WORD!!

Re: Pirates-Dinosaurs-Haunted Treasure! Only 3 days left!
I'm annoyed that it still isn't clear whether or not those of us who have pre-ordered this from Jolly Roger LONG before the Kickstarter will get any Kickstarter bonuses or not, or if we're supposed to cancel our Jolly Roger pre-orders and switch to a Kickstarter backer.

While I am not the publisher, I assure you that pre-orders will get the KickStarter stuff. I will confirm with Jim (and I am sure he will agree, he has just a lot of family priorities right now), but if I have to take less royalties I will make sure you all get the KickStarter stuff. You ave my word on that.

That's the spirit! If everyone who's already backed just reaches out to a friend or three, we'll hit funding no problem!

People who preordered will get the game--and if any additions are in the 'standard' game, those are included no problem.

If 'bonuses' are limited to KS supporters only (things at the $100+ level essentially), those are for KS supporters only.

As Richard noted--I've been dealing with some family stuff. So I apologize for a tardy response--but I will ALWAYS put family first (and would expect that of each and every person reading this!!!)
