Greetings Canberra Gamers and KS addicts alike,

I've been watching the Kickstarter campaign for The 7th Continent over the last few weeks. A mate was looking to back but has needed to pass, so I'm wondering if there were other locals that have already backed, or were looking to.

Game looks really interesting, and there about 10 days remaining on the campaign.

The cost of backing this game is prohibitive, so makes sense if others have focused on other things. I'm keen to either join existing pledge and share the shipping, or start a pledge on behalf of some keen individuals.

Hopefully this thread can generate or focus some chatter about this game.

Happy gaming!

So I just invited Geoff (squire) to jump on my pledge and was about to throw out an invitation, but I see I have been ninja'd

If you want to jump on my pledge Cameron, you are welcome, as is anyone else (up to a maximum of 7 in total).

For those considering it, the starting pledge is 59 euro, but that does not include shipping, which will be determined after the campaign. The benefit of a group pledge is simply that each additional copy incurs only half the undetermined amount of additional shipping.

1) nutjunkie (Explorer + sleeves)
2) squire (Explorer, + sleeves)
3) DrClaw (Explorer + sleeves)
4) Etims (Explorer, no add-ons)
5)

Last Orders.

This is closing off in 48 hours. If any one else is interested, or if any of the current backers want any add-ons, let me know.

Please add the sleeves for me too.

Are you happy to add things in the pledge manager later on? I'm considering the storms add-on, but probably won't get it up front.

Happy to do so as long as I can. I thought I read somewhere about not being able to do so, but I think I might be getting confused with another Kickstarter. Turns out I am backing more than one KS at once, crazy eh?

So the initial damage report came in, and after the bank had finished its digit fiddling we are in for 579.89+17.40 = $597.29. As you will be aware, this is sans postage, but I am guessing we won't find out about this until they have a prototype that they can measure up.

1) Andrew (nutjunkie): $152.10 - PAID
2) Geoff (squire): $152.10 - PAID
3) Cameron (DrClaw): $152.10 - PAID
4) David (Etims): $141.00 - PAID

I will keep you posted on postage.

So the latest update seems to suggest that they won't be finalising P&P until they have the pledge manager up and running, and that won't be until January.

So, unless it is going to cause huge inconvenience, this one might need to be done in two payments.

So this looks like it will be possible, but the pledge manager is not going out until early next year, so you have plenty of time to save up (or spend your money on other games devil)

After the dust has settled, the additional costs came in at 66.50 euro which is broken down as follows:


Explorer postage: 47.50 (= 19.00*2.5)
Weather expansion: 17.00
Weather postage: 2.00


The Explorer postage will be split 4 ways, so 11.88 euro each. I was billed $106.99 which gives an effective exchange rate of 0.6216. This leads to the following additional costs in AUD:


1) Andrew (nutjunkie): $19.10 - PAID
2) Geoff (squire): $49.67 - PAID
3) Cameron (DrClaw): $19.10 - PAID
4) David (Etims): $19.10 - PAID
-------
Total: $106.97


Somewhere I must have given my $0.02 worth.

An update was sent today. This might be readable by all on the KS page, but if not, the gist is that production has started and they are looking at a May delivery target.

They have a little schedule thingy which can be viewed at:

Fellow adventurers, the continents have drifted as far as my front doorstep and are waiting to be explored.

I am in Ngunnawal and should be around most of the weekend if you want pick up, otherwise I will be at the ANU on Monday and can probably do a meet-up at some point. Please PM me your preferences and we can sort out the details.

David - Cameron mentioned that he would be prepared to pick up your lot at the same time as his.
