We were able to scrabble together a way to ensure more plastic gates would be produced than our original estimate, so they are now a simple add-on for our Orcs Must Die! Kickstarter campaign.

The Gates are free for anyone who orders the Acolyte pledge (which includes a copy of Cthulhu Wars), and are an add-on for anyone who pledges at the Minion or the Hero level.

We did discuss the possibility of doing a separate (presumably smaller) campaign just for the gates. We rejected this because before we could put it together properly, the gates would be in the pipeline, and we wouldn't know how many gates to even produce.

So for now, you can either get the gates by pledging on OMD, or of course by getting someone who DID pledge on OMD, but doesn't want the gates, to sell them to you.

That's nice for Orcs must Die supporters. On the other hand I feel a bit disappointed that this was not done for the Theomancy kickstarter too, since i just received the base game from that. I wouldn't mind the gates myself. Anyway...

Maybe a new pledge tier can be created specifically for the gates only but at a higher cost? This will allow those purchasing OMD to get a good bargain while still allowing CW fans to get the gates. I wouldn't mind paying more for the gates.

I would love to have these, but I already have Cthulhu Wars, and to pledge at that level would double up on an expensive game due just to get the plastic gates. Not sure I could justify that...wish there were another way.

Gates are a $30 add-on at the other backer levels, so you don't have to buy CW twice (but will have to buy OMD, which looks pretty sweet in its own right ).

same boat here. Realistically, I actually backed Theomachy to essentially get Cthulhu wars, with Theomachy as a cheap add-on Would love for there to be a retrospective offer to Theomachy backers, since Theomachy hasn't shipped yet, and the gates could be included with that shipment...? Pretty please? *bats eyelashes*

I wouldn't mind either. We can only hope.

We did a new add-on which is just the plastic gates.

I guess y'all can tell we're doing all this on the fly, right? Making up stuff as we go along. At least it should be obvious that we respond to you guys!

It's great that you respond to requests.. But I think there's still a lot of people who, like me, would very much like to purchase the gates without having to pledge at least the Minion level.

Would that ever be possible? Could we pledge a lower amount than $90 and still be able to purchase the gates as an add on?

How about a Cthulhu Wars Expansion Faction pack add on?
