Hi Everyone,

I have been in constant contact with Karl from Commonman Games, and through his great flexibility (what a great guy!) we look as if we have managed to work out a way in which we can get a UK group order together for some of the Kickstarter add-ons.
We are aware that there are a number of Police Precinct fans over here in the UK and already have most of the expansions. This pledge is really aimed at them, so that they can get the latest expansions.

Therefore, this pledge will only be able to cover items from the C expansion (new character cards) and possible MD1 (6 custom dice set).

In order to get your special offer for the App release, the best way in which this can work is as follows -

Pledge the $25 minimum pledge on Kickstarter for the 'C expansion'. (it will ask you where you are, just leave it as United States).
When the pledge manager comes along, put in your order on Kickstarter, advising Karl which expansions from the C expansion and MD1 that you need, adding up the total value and paying that through the pledge manager. During this stage, let Karl know that this will be part of the UK Group pledge.

Let me know, via Geekmail the total value of the cardboard items which you have ordered.

I will then work out a percentage of the value of your order compared to the total, and I can work out the shipping and tax costs for each person.

Once I have the total, I will geekmail each pledger to pay for the shipping, tax and UK shipping via PayPal (as a gift to minimise fees) or as a direct bank transfer, whichever you would prefer.

If the package comes through without any taxes or handling fees from customs, then this will be refunded to you.

As a rough guestimate, using the best possible airmail prices, shipping from the USA, taxes, handling and UK internal shipping will come to approximately £12 for a cardboard order of $28 (i.e. the CC#3 add-on).

This is an approximation based on everybody ordering the same and for 20 UK pledgers.

At this time, due to the potential size of the box to get the best shipping prices, I will be looking to cap this at 20 orders, on a first come/first served basis.

please add to this forum and drop me a Geekmail if you are interested and I will add you to the list.

If we get less than 15 pledges, then the shipping may be cost prohibitive per head, but I will geekmail everybody with a decision of whether we will continue, so that Kickstarter pledges can be cancelled, if necessary. This minimises the risk to everyone involved, but maximises the chance that we can help Karl hit some stretch goals. I will let you all know with 1 day to go before the close of the Kickstarter, so that you can cancel your pledges.

I look forward to hearing from you.....and hey!, Let's be careful out there!!!

Also, don't forget about the ones from here...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1529038443/police-preci...

Can you (Dave) reach out to them too please?

I bet they feel like they are officially "signed-up" at this point.

I wouldn't want them to loose their place in line.

(Looks like: Jonathan, Paul, Chris, and Karen)



I added a special notice to alert people to contact you here about this.

Karl

(Reminder that Jonathan "Joff" Warren is playing a key role in this with his US Design partner -- they will ship the box in your direction from Denver)

I'm interested, but I'm now a bit confused as to what I've got and not got.
I think I got everything available from the 2nd edition Kickstarter - which bits of content are new since then?

If you backed the second edition and you want everything that you're missing, you'll need to back at #CC2 level ($26). See this page: http://www.commonman.com/2e/

So, this Police Precinct project was funded and I assume we went ahead with a group pledge. My pledge has been taken and I need to respond to a survey. How should we proceed?

Hey Joff!

In order to fill out the survey, you need to put some USA address, so you can use my address:

668 Ogden Street
Denver, CO 80218

then send us a message via Kickstarter stating what you want shipped to you.

Doug will also play a role in this of course, I'll let him explain what he needs from you.

Hi Joff and others who are using this group,

What Karl said!

Yes, if you fill out the Pledge manager with the details of what you are ordering and the total value, that'll get your order in place and your early bird for the app. Remember to let Karl know on the Pledge manager that you are part of the U.K. Group.

Once you have done that, please send me a Geekmail with what you have ordered and I'll work out the shipping options and cost to get them over here.

I'll then work with Karl to shipping and will only ask for payment for shipping once I have paid it out myself.

Karl,

Thanks very much for letting us use your address for the time being.

I'll be in touch soon.

All the best

Dave

Uh oh, I think I messed up!

I got sidetracked and didn't go back and do the $25 pledge (work commitments and having to find somewhere new to live !)

Is it all too late for me to get the add-ons and expansions I was hoping to get or is there something else I can do to get things sorted..?

Hi Chris,

Karl is great. If you contact him directly, I'm sure that he can sort you out regarding the pledge.

If he does, let me know as I am looking into working out shipping and weights, etc.

Good luck

Dave
