BGG is breaking your KS preview link (it's stripping out the ?token part). I ran it through bitly, this one should work.

Looks good - even the postage rates to my little country meeple

Just one thing I noticed: the dice are obviously not engraved (which I assumed is pretty much standard nowadays), so there could be a problem with the paint wearing off after a number of plays ...

Re: Flippin' Fruit - Let's Get Juicy!
My bad, I will fix this. It should be +£3 and +£5 as the official line says.

Thanks for the interest

Re: Flippin' Fruit - Let's Get Juicy!

Hi I am not a hard core gamer, neither am I a designer-these folk will likely weigh in with all the techie advice soon.

But just having had a look at your KS and web site I think I am your target customer, I play with both gamers and non gamers and this looks like it would be a fit for a mixed crowd.

* I like your site its easy to navigate and it made me smile ( I want my experiences to be fun )

* your KS prices are fair and reasonable-I could afford 2 sets!! and shipping is great!

Just a note on the shipping-I know you will edit the KS page again but the pledge level have 2 different prices for shipping on them, £2&£3 on each.

Having the rules already listed is a bonus, I liked what I have seen and will be notified when you go live.

Best of luck.

Re: Flippin' Fruit - Let's Get Juicy!
The prototype dice I have are in great condition after months of playtesting so I don't see this as an issue. Unfortunately engraving is not an option on the 12 sided dice, so hopefully the novelty of the 12 sides and full colour design will be appealing enough.

Really appreciate those comments Trace. As for the pledge postage, I realise some of them are different - the +£2 postage is for dice only, and takes into the account no tube or cards to be shipped - lighter means cheaper to ship I will review this all again when I can weigh the final prototypes.

Good lot of info on the kickstarter page, good pricing, definitely has got me interested.

Just a couple of questions, what is the weight of the game? - would it be playable for kids and if so what ages would you anticipate would be able to cope with it on average (my 4 year old likes games and also anything to do with food and cooking so this would potentially be her perfect game - I like to think she's pretty advanced as with help she can play Flashpoint, Dungeonquest and Carcassonne).

The boxed game has an 8+ on the tube and not suitable for under 18 months (small parts) - but it depends how many rules you wish to use. By just using the smoothie cards and dice, you could easily have a game suitable for general 3-5 year olds. The full rules can be found on the website www.flippinfruit.co.uk or on the facebook page, but are quite flexible depending on how advanced your child is - it's pretty simple and straight forward

Thanks for the feedback!
