Thank you everyone for getting behind this project and helping it fund in less than a day. This really has been a passion project of mine but I was not sure how the community would respond to the game, if it would be a niche group or something larger.

We have some really great stretch goals planned that I hope we unlock, so I hope we don't lose too much steam.

Thank you again so very much.

Are the achieved stretch goals going to be in the game sold in stores? Or will they be a future expansion sold separately?

Garry, the Kickstarter stretch goals will be available in stores, if these stores order the games on Kickstarter. Otherwise, the stretch goals are available exclusively through Kickstarter orders, since we are printing only a limited quantity of them.

Edit: Clarification - The first role cards and mats stretch goal will be included in all games. All other stretch goals are exclusive to the Kickstarter supporter. This includes the expansion Abolitionist cards, the wooden Slave Catcher pieces, the lantern, and any other goals that are met.

This information should be on the Kickstarter page.

Will the copies of 1775 Rebellion purchased through this Kickstarter campaign include any of the KS exclusives from the 1775 campaign?

Thanks!

Do the added player mats from the stretch goal enable 5-6 player games? Or is the game still limited to 4 players, just with more starting options?

The game caps at 4. The roles just provide more starting options.

According to the (now updated) Kickstarter page, only the non-gameplay enhancing Lantern upgrade is a Kickstarter exclusive. The others will be available for separate purchase by non-backers after the campaign ends.

Glaya,
It is still only up to a 4 player game, but one has more play options.

Alex,
You are correct. We had a lot of people complain that they did not have the funds at this time to support Kickstarter, but would not mind paying a lot more later to get the expansion cards. But they are warned that we are only printing a few extra sets and these will not be available in stores or online shops.
