Hi all,

With the unfortunate fall in the value of the £, it has become quite expensive to pledge for some US based Kickstarters, so I thought I would try and save us some money by setting up a UK Group Buy for the Crime Wave extension to Hostage Negotiator, and in particular, the Veteran level pledge, which is everything not already released...

So, now the maths...

A single Veteran level pledge will cost $50 + $15 ($65), which, with the reduced exchange rate, works out at £50...A bit pricey!

However, after having chatted with Angelo (the game designer) he has offered me 12 copies of the Veteran level pledge, for $40 per copy, plus $35 shipping, making $515 or $43 per copy (£33)...quite a significant saving over the $65 single copy...

On top of this, there will obviously be the onward UK shipping, which I am estimating at about £4-£5 per copy, so all in all, it will work out at between £37-£38 per copy, fully delivered to your door...

The game is fully EU friendly, so there won't be any import fees or duty, and so this is probably the best (cheapest) way to get a copy...so long as the £/$ rate remains so low...

My intention will be to pledge for the 12 copies, and pay that once the KS finishes, and then (assuming we get 12 backers) invoice each of you for the $43 (£33), by PayPal Gift or BT, but not charge the UK shipping element until the games actually arrive early next year...

As it stands, this level of discount really only works with 12 backers, so I will need to limit it to 12, unfortunately...any more, and the shipping cost increases, and any less and the unit price increases...So, hopefully we will get the 12 we need to make this work.

If anyone has any questions, then please feel free to contact me...I am more than happy to discuss any aspect of this...

So, I will start the ball rolling by putting the first 2 names in the Group Buy list...

Crime Wave UK Group Buy backers:

Re: UK Group Buy (for the Veteran level pledge)
Hi Kevin - I'm in for this if possible please? I will switch my pledge down to the £1 to follow campaign and happy to get involved with you and 11 others.


Awesome and thanks for setting this up. Can't wait for the next set of adventures. And of course, bling-related packaging, box malarkey and now, it seems, dividers hopefully. Boom.

Cheers fella.

Steve.

Hi Jesus,

I am not sure anything else can be added to this particular setup...the shipping costs are tight as they are, and anything else added will probably increase the shipping costs...so unfortunately, as of right now, I am going to keep this Group Buy purely for Veteran level pledges only...

Sorry

Cheers,
Kevin

Count me in. I was backing the project anyway but the price was too high for me really. I really need the bigger box for my sleeved cards.

Ok, thanks Kevin, I'll wait a bit for now. If you can manage to add those a bit further let me know.

I'd like to be added to the group as well, £50 was a bit of a stretch but this price I think I can justify :-)

Re: UK Group Buy (for the Veteran level pledge)
I wish there was more of this group buys in the UK, great idea. I would love to join in the buy but I am backing the $90 as I have no other HS content so I am going for the full backing.

Re: UK Group Buy (for the Veteran level pledge)
Could I be added please.

As for others, the original price was a bit too high but this outcome is great. With the shipping costs being high, will the stretch goals be included if they are achieved as that will add to the weight.

Also does anyone know how to get a copy of the original Negotiator Cards? Can they be purchased at retail anywhere?

Thanks

Hi Andrew,

Yes, the shipping cost will include any stretch goals that are achieved...

I would imagine the pricing model allows for the extra weight of stretch goals by the fact that in order to achieve those stretch goals, the total pledge amount has to increase, thus giving the project more cash to play with...

I've added you to the group buy, in slot 11...Welcome aboard thumbsup

Re: UK Group Buy (for the Veteran level pledge)
Thanks Kevin.

I've just noticed on the KS page that you can add the Negotiator Packs to the Veteran level pledge. $10 for both. Is that something you think you would be able to do as part of the group buy for those of us who need them?
I know they are not needed for the game but the completionist in me wants them

Cheers

Re: UK Group Buy (for the Veteran level pledge)
Hi Andrew,

At the moment, I cannot guarantee that I can add the Negotiator packs without it affecting the shipping cost, as the quote I had was simp,y for 12 Veteran pledges...

If you are happy to keep your slot in the group buy, I will ask the question, and see if it's possible to add the Negotiator packs (for an extra $10) without affecting the shipping cost...

I'll let you know once I hear back...

Cheers,
Kevin

Thanks Kevin. Want to keep my space in the group buy. The negotiator cards aren't that important if they can't be added.

Kevin, in that case, can you add me to the 12th spot as provisional too? thanks

Sure thing Jesus...The thing that was concerning me with your request was the Meeples that you wanted...I couldn't see them or see any way to add them...

If you are happy with the chance of just the added Negotiator pack(s), then that should be OK (I just need confirmation)...but I couldn't see any mention of the Meeples...

I'll add you as the 12th spot, and we can see what reply I get about the Negotiator packs...

Cheers,
Kevin

Perfect, thanks Kevin. In the last update I think A.J. added a note saying that for 15$ we could add the meeples if we wanted. Anyway, if is not possible probably I'll just pass on those

Ah, I hadn't seen that note about the Meeples...let me look into it for you, and see what can be done...
