As the thread title says, I have set up a group buy in order to cut back on postage costs.

This group buy is now closed

$770 pledged for fifteen copies

The price per copy will be £34.94 based on the exchange rate given by my card provider today. When the Kickstarter closes I will send all members a notification which will include payment details via PayPal. Please send the money as a gift so that I do not get any charges! Please can you try to reimburse me within 48 hours of the notification as I cannot support this many pledges on my card for any great length of time surprise

There will not be any backer only updates but I will endeavour to keep everyone notified of updates as you might not otherwise know about them as and when they happen. When the games arrive I'll send out pictures etc. and will start to box up for postage as soon as possible (I've run two other group buys in the past so I know what to expect!)

Shipping to your postal address will only be requested after everything has arrived and is packed and ready to go. Shipping will be via Collect Plus and charged at the actual rate at time of postage (currently either £4.99 or £6.29 depending on the final weight. Paul at >G has noted that the game is likely to clock in at more than 2Kg with all the stretch goal extras included so it's likely to be the higher of those two shipping rates. I am open to cheaper shipping methods but they must include a tracking service, so do let me know if you find a better option.

I will confirm the London on Board collection date once the games have arrived. Advance notice, this will almost certainly coincide with the following Sentinels game day on a Sunday. If you don't normally go to Sunday sessions I can potentially use one of the chaps who frequent both IBG and LoB to get the game into your hands (we'll work it out closer to the time)


Postal members:
SHIPPED 1. Silverleaf x2 Copies
SHIPPED 2. CRennie
SHIPPED 3. Tarnop
SHIPPED 4. Shadowruin
SHIPPED 5. tmgergo
SHIPPED 6. Palemoon x2 Copies

Thanks guys! GTG do have a habit of encouraging awesome things. My arm might also be twisted to more than seven adresses, I've just got to work out the logistics involved - I didn't expect so much interest on day one!

Also interested. I'm Sheffield-based but can pick up from London on Board fairly easily too.

We've hit seven postal addresses but please keep posting if you want to get in on a groupbuy. We may well end up setting up more than one if other people are willing to run their own alongside this one, plus the shipping hubs and collection options are still open!

So how's this going to work, then? Mezike, I presume you've backed already. Are you going to request payment from us and then top up your pledge to account for multiple copies based on actual payments received? How do you want paying?

I will keep this group buy open for another couple of weeks, closing it to new members a few days before the KS ends. At that point I will up my pledge to cover all the required copies. When the KS closes I will notify you all on the final charge to my bank account and therefore what the individual share of that will be. I would appreciate payment within 48hrs as I cannot support this many pledges on my own for any great length of time. The currency rate fluctuates so I won't ask for any money prior to the final charge being made by KS.

Internal shipping costs will be paid next year after the games arrive and I have them packed and ready to send. For LoB pickup I will take everything all on the same day, almost certainly a Sunday when there is a monthly Sentinels meetup happening. If for some reason we can't be there at the same time there are usually plenty of people who are happy to pick up by proxy so I'm sure we can work it out at the time.

So for now, just put your feet up and relax for the next three weeks

Great, thanks. In the meantime, I've pledged $1 so I'll receive the campaign updates.

Just a note that I will close this multibuy to new members on Wednesday 14th October around noon GMT.

You will not need to keep in a $1 pledge for updates as GTG have confirmed that they will not do any backer-only updates - hooray! - but I will still notify you all whenever an update comes up so that you get an alert.

I have also upped my pledge on the KS.

Direct postage will be via Collect Plus and will be either £4.99 or £6.29 depending on how many stretch goals are unlocked. Each copy will be roughly £34 for the game and share of shipping to the UK so somewhere around £39/£40 total.

If you pick up from Silverleaf in Sheffield it will probably be £37 as that would be three games I am sending there so it would go with the heavy parcel rate of £8.39 split three ways. So if you collect then you would save two or three quid yourself as well as also saving Silverleaf a couple of quid too, not to mention maybe making new gaming friends

If you go with collection now and later decide that you want direct postage instead then that shouldn't be a problem, I'm not charging for internal shipping until the games have arrived.

That makes this seem very do-able now! Where abouts does Silverleaf live in Sheffield? (PM me if it's better for privacy reasons) I like the idea of making new gaming friends as well!!

She lives in Chesterfield but her other half works in Sheffield. If you want to work out logistics with her then the best bet would be to sign up on the GTG forums and send her a PM there.

If there are postal spaces left I'd love to be in on two copies.

I'm based in Devon and happy to act as a hub for people in the South West.
