The Kickstarter for the 2nd printing is underway. I already have a copy of the game but do want to get my hands on the Abductor packs (1-4). However, I can back at the $20 level, adding $5 on for base meeples and the 2nd Negotiator pack, finally adding postage of $7 takes my pledge to $32 (which I have pledged at for now). Now, if there was a group of 10 from the UK, each backer would receive all the Abductor packs, Negotiator cards, base meeples and a copy of the game for only $36 each. I could then pledge at this level and give the additional copy of the game to my friend to discover.

So that said, who would be willing to join me. My usual group conditions are pasted below.

Here are my conditions for running this group pledge:

This is a UK group pledge for 10 persons. The pledge will be made at the '10 COPIES OF EVERYTHING at the $45 level' level. This level includes all Abductor packs, base meeples, 2nd Negotiator pack and (bonus meeples is the stretch goal is met) for each copy of the game.

The positions will be filled on a first come, first served basis, and are only open to backers within the UK. If there are less than 10 backers, I will not make the pledge (that said, there is another option, costing slightly more per copy (£28.50), for a group of 6 backers; we'll arrange details if we only get 6 backers on-board).

Each copy of the game is $36. This works out at about £25 per copy; so, of course, the total cost of each copy of the game will be about £25. There should be no customs charges on this one as it is being shipped from within the EU.

You will be responsible for paying your individual internal postage (within the UK) for me to ship the game to you. I would estimate a cost of about £3 for this (Royal Mail).

To confirm your acceptance of this agreement, I will require an initial payment of £25 by PayPal, as a gift (you pick up PayPal fees), or by Bank Transfer before the Kickstarter closes and pledge is taken. I will contact you via GM for this once the group is filled with the actual initial payment required. The initial £25 assumes a group of 10 backers is actually met.

A balancing payment is payable when I receive the games (this will be an equal division of what I am actually charged in GBP for the Kickstarter transaction and your individual internal Postage fee, minus your initial payment).

In the highly unlikely event that we incur any further charges, they will be split equally between the group.

If this is agreeable, please add your name on the list.

Edits: I have run a couple of Group Buys before. I use a spreadsheet to break costs down and keep track of everything.

I am happy to include any add-ons for the game that you might want; for this game the only add-on available is for the 5 metallic dice (extra $15 (around £10), payable with your initial £25 (£35)) as the other add-ons are actually included in your pledge.

There are a few of us on The Kickstarter Kabal on Facebook that are interested in getting hold of a copy.

I need to know those that want to add-on the metal dice to their pledge ($15 extra - an initial payment of £35 is required, rather than £25).

Also, if you're reading this, backing via The Kickstarter Kabal and have a BGG username, please GM so I can contact everybody in an easier fashion.

Please let me know if you are interested in having these add-ons.

Group pledge just about gives me free metal dice over a solo pledge so would be a shame not to

35 pounds of digital cash winging its way over.

I will open the group to 15, so there are two more places. Paul, Ian and Kevin you three are already included. I am away until tomorrow evening and I'll contact you all by GM regarding initial payment

Also, if you have been contacted for your initial payment and have not yet made it, please be aware that I reserve the right not to include you in this group pledge. To guarantee a place, please make your initial payment as soon as possible. Thanks.

Cool, thanks...but I was wondering, how are the logistics of the KS bulk ordering discount going to work with 15 orders?

The only bulk ordering (with free shipping) is the 10 x copies...

Are you planning to order 2 x lots of the 10 x copies, and sell the remaining 5 later on?

Thanks for expanding the list though...I am pleased to be on it

Cheers,
Kevin

The KS creator has confirmed that we can add further copies to the 10 pack at the same price (36 dollars). I will go to 15 for now (just for my sanity!)

NH I can probably get you in at space 14. I'll send you a mail later today (evening) when I'm back at home. I need to confirm everything with the project creator.
