Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
badge
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

"An orange production game where you represent a co-op for helping orange ranchers receive support and best prices for their crops.

California Gold is a 3-5 player board game where players represent Co-Ops like Sunkist. The object is to collect the most cards which represent orange groves in specific counties. Infrastructure is necessary to compete by strategically placing Packing Houses, Nurseries, and Offices. Advertising, Politics, Railroad contracts, and growing conditions create realistic challenges. Wide open competition and tight game play encourage variable approaches to victory."

30$ shipping to Canada for a 40$ game. Seriously?

I guess I don't know what's surprising about that, since that's what it costs to ship a typically sized game to Canada.

Same here. With these conditions it is almost unreachable from Europe.

Why do people keep complaining to project creators instead of shipping companies? Why not find a more viable solution for you to use instead of just whining about it? The world isn't fair, either do something about it or quit whining.

We are not complaining, just not support the KS project, because of the high shipping cost and the double taxes.
Companies must bargain proper quantity discounts for shipping costs and avoid double taxing with batch shippings to sell his product to the European customers. That's it.

Add as many images to the kickstarter page as you can. This kickstarter looks like it's going to fail, and from the page I can't see how good I know the game looks. Three card images are not going to cut it.

Unfortunately, for Numbskull Games, showing off more artwork wouldn't be helpful, as their art and graphic design is always incredibly poorly done.

They just don't invest enough in the look of their games to be a viable Kickstarter publisher. It's a real shame, as the games look like they'd be great games and would sell well if they were done by publishers that have the skills and funds to make a game presentable. You just can't put games that look like this on the market and expect people to have faith that they're good games. They have to look the part!

I think their games are generally pretty, and this one is particularly pretty. I wanted to buy this one just based on its looks, before I even read the rules. I don't think I'm the only one.

edit: How pretty is this?



I'd be willing to buy that without even seeing it played. At least put the boxcover across the top of the kickstarter page. This game is exactly the type of niche object (because of its subject) that accidentally catches fire with people.

the game looks interesting, I just can't see it funding the goal you require without a little more effort put into the kickstarter. I mean 24k is a huge amount of money considering you don't have extra content to help understand what you are offering and unfortunately there are a ton of games on kickstarter that offer the extra needed information (and extra things people desire like reviews, gameplay videos, and extra art etc.)

I hope the game gets funded as it looks interesting, Good luck.
