The KS prices include shipping (I've been burned on this before)?

Woot! #12 here.

I'm not super excited about Ship Naked handling fulfillment though. Anyone had any experience with larger games they've shipped for KS projects?

I had Tiny Epic Galaxies and the Ancient Terrible Things expansion come from them, both in just a bubble mailer (which was then furiously crammed into my mailbox by my less-than-eager-to-get-out-of-the-vehicle mail carrier).

But it automatically adds it to your pledge so no need to add it to your pledge total yourself.

Secrets of the Lost Tomb was packed fine, but that was a huge box with many additional boxes as expansions. The only other game I've received fulfilled through them is Tiny Epic Galaxies.

Many of the other Kickstarter normal-sized box games I've received, not fulfilled through Ship Naked, have been minimally protected. I feel lucky that more of them haven't arrived damaged.

Of course, it would have been much more expensive using our print-on-demand model. This game will be printed overseas as most games are, which is a consideration.

We feel there is plenty of "there" there for you money, as we build from the gameplay to the components (and not the other way around).

I wonder how many backers will get the laser-cut counters add-on, when it is characterized like below in the campaign. I agree with the characterization, and it had me laughing, having recently punched Darkest Night and getting Darkest Fingers. I expect many at VPG have a love/hate relationship with the laser-cut counters of the print-on-demand process.

The laser-cut counters have a soot residue from the laser process. They also have a slightly higher raised edge since the material isn’t compressed for cutting like with the die-cut process. We offer the laser-cut counters for our friends who have a preference for them and who “enjoy the campfire smell” that comes with these counters.

I simply LOVE these counters (and I'm glad for the opportunity to order these BEAUTIES and that SUPERCOOL looking dicetower).

I had done the keyflower kick starter, which used Ship Naked. The game came in a nice sturdy box and was well packed (Amazon quality or better).

maybe it's the way i am subscribed around BGG, but for me this was one of the most hyped kickstarters i've seen. reviews and videos seemed to be everywhere. of course, my being a curmudgeon put me off it all, but i have to admire the planning VPG has done

Looks like a nice KS project and I have been waiting for it

but

Shipping to New Zealand is $43 , thats obviously a mistake or some cruel joke as shipping to Australia is only $28

that is a total of $99USD or $150NZD which would get me a copy of Twilight Imperium 3rd Edition shipped to my front door which is a very big game.

What are the dimension of the box and approximate weight?
and
Is VPG offering a cheaper postage option i.e. a Polybag

Thanks
Bruce

Super excited for this one. Nothing like a solo game that is specifically designed for solo play and not some kludgy bolted-on affair. VPG do nice games, but the components have always been a little suspect. It's nice to see this get the component love it deserves. Add in a great theme and meaty game play, and I'm S-O-L-D.

We will look into that, but we got the shipping prices directly from Ship Naked. Check here:

No; there will not be a polybag edition!

@Alan
Thanks for checking shipping to NZ

I guess with production moving to China, there is always a compromise re making your games available at a reasonable price. Every one of the VPG games I own (about 20) I received in a polybag to reduce postage costs.

I will keep playing Nemo's War edition one and hope there has been a mistake re postage rates to NZ

Thanks

I agree, VPG are lifting the bar higher and higher for quality. I regret missing the Dawn of the Zeds 3rd Kickstarter. I may have to miss out on this one too because of the terrible AUD to USD conversion. May have to budget this in, but if I do not end up backing it is not because I did not want to - this looks fantastic!

NZ is a stones throw from AU, so that is odd. The only thing I could imagine is Ship Naked's distribution agent is in Australia who is then shipping the game again to NZ, but this is a massive guess.

Nice! Only exclusive is that neat little pin, and backers get a discount as an incentive/thank you. Excellent campaign, happy to support. And I had a good laugh at offering laser-cut counters, but I think I'll stick with the die-cut for this go-round.
