I fell in love with this game when I saw it and played it. Luckily for me, I own a game company and got the rights when the game went out of print.

Our Kickstarter for the second edition is now live at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2125111845/funemployed-....

If you have any questions about the game, the Kickstarter, or life in general, I'm happy to answer them.

The game looks like a lot of fun! Glad to see it's being reprinted.

Is there anyway you can open up a multiple copy shipping tier to Non-retailers? I have purchased multiple copies of Snake Oil for friends and this would likely be a great gift as well but $29 per copy isn't budget friendly for me currently.

Likely to have a one-day sale on either Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday for just this event.

Curious as to what level would feel right for you?

Buy 2, get 1 free?

A 3 pack for $60 would get my money for sure as $20 seems to be good entry point for a party game like this.

Are there any new cards not present in the first edition? I managed to snag one before and it is very fun, though I'd like to have more cards for it. I also dig the preliminary art in the new edition.

Thanks on the art feedback and the pricing bundle pack.

If we can get to our goal, a likely stretch goal is to add additional cards.

I'd just like to pitch in that the art looks brilliant. June 2015 can't come soon enough...

Thanks on the art comment. You just made my wife's day as she did all the art (working with the designer, etc.)

I have a question.

You weren't keen on KS at the beginning of the year, so does this little foray mean you're still considering using KS for the SeaFall funding?

I don't mean you hated KS, just that you looked at it and said "I'm publishing and designing, I don't want to be customer relations aswell" something like that.

I've learned a lot in the past two years. I still think that trying to design a game as big as SeaFall AND do a Kickstarter AND be a publisher would be too much for someone starting up a company.

With Funemployed, the scale of the game is smaller and I'm not the designer so I can just focus (with some partners) on the publishing part of the game.

We're looking into it but Amazon fulfillment in Australia seems to be costly and logistically difficult. I'm happy to discuss shipping options but they may be steep.

Cool. Understood. And thanks for the taking the time to respond.

and if you were interested, Flip the Table just gave you a plug for your part in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Game. nice work over the long haul Rob!

I just saw it on KS, great concept and design!
That's a pity that doesn't ship anywhere though (I live in Italy), I really hope there's a possibility to open up some additional distribution down the road.

I'm a new company and the biggest chance with Kickstarter to really mess something up lies with international shipping. We are being cautious and utilizing Amazon fulfillment centers in English speaking countries (and Germany as a central EU hub). The hope was that the print and play would be an affordable back up for other backers. I'm sorry if that doesn't quite work for you. There are so many horror stories on KS about promises made that are catastrophic to fulfill.

In unrelated news, I spent a week in Tuscany last month and cannot believe how beautiful your country is. Every time I'm there I am simply stunned that it really exists.

Thanks all who pledged on the Kickstarter. We got funded but, as these things go, we now have stretch goal. If we get to it, we're adding 100 new cards to the game but keeping it at the same price. So the game goes from 300 cards to 400.

Thanks again for your support. Much appreciated.

This game seems such fun! If you start branching out with other shipping destinations and the Netherlands makes the list, I will back this for sure.

Being a cautious publisher out of the gate but looking to grow quickly and appropriately.

Did I miss the Black Friday sale for this or did you decide to cancel it?

Is it an error that the Cyber Monday doesn't ship to Germany? I'm wondering since the other levels do allow Germany as a destination, and three copies to someone I know in Germany and having her ship two to the Netherlands would be a feasible option for me.

Just in case people aren't watching the kickstarter campaign, it's great to see shipping to Australia now!

SU&SD's little nod to this game in their recent update should certainly help. It is what swayed me to back it!

Is this going to be available for purchase outside of Kickstarter at any point? I missed the window
