This started out as a group pledge I was managing but I've since realised
I am better off going solo on this one.However, it may still be beneficial for others to be part of a group or at least pair up.

Others potentially interested in participating in a group pledge are:

Base
1.Michael

Expansion
1. Dave
2. Michael
3. Simon
4. Cameron
5. Murray
6. Tim
7. Kon
8.Paul

I have sought information about shipping rates for pledges above 10. Gamelyn has indicated that each additional box will add roughly 1/10th of the shipping cost for 10 boxes - so about $9 per extra box.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

Thanks, Rob.

Happy to be a part of this and, of course, please note my pledge is 'deluxe'.

I'm happy to go just for the expansion instead of base+expansion, it might nudge us closer to a 10 pack.

I've got the retail base, and apparently I can get the missing parts to make it deluxe through the geek store.

Edit: http://boardgamegeekstore.com/products/tiny-epic-galaxies-sa..., only $3 shipping.

Up to you Michael but I don't think it will impact our ability to get 10 pack of expansions either way. I think that there might be other things in the base deluxe package but I doubt it would be worth paying an extra $30+ USD for.

Thanks Murray for reminding me - I'm assuming everyone wants deluxe unless stated otherwise.

We just pushed it to $200,000. I may have timed my pledge update deliberately to do so.

also backed this, so it might be a good idea to see if he wants to go in a group pledge.

Have been doing some digging and just confirmed the deluxe content of the base game is just the "Satellites & Super Weapons Mini Expansion", the rest of the stuff is the same.

Not sure if you already have the base game but I'd consider just upgrading via the BGG store if you do, $11USD including shipping vs $30+USD like you mentioned.

As previously noted, I'm in for the deluxe expansion.

Also, I'm happy to take over responsibility for the deluxe expansion 10 pack pledge, Rob, if you do decide you want to split them up.

Another small consideration is that the base game available through this kickstarter has some minor changes from the original, as described in the FAQ section of the campaign page:

"the changes are minor and do not constitute it being sold as a second edition. The tweaks include spot UV on the box, adding a "once per turn" restriction to planets Nagato and Zavodnick, the yellow player bits have black screen printing now, and planet cards display the planet's influence type at the bottom of the card."

Ugh, now you've done it! Sorry Rob, do you mind bumping me back up to deluxe base+expansion?

I was thinking about this based on discussion in the Unfair thread.

Let's give it a bit more time to see how the numbers work out but at current numbers it doesn't make much sense for me to manage a large pledge. As I'm after base and expansion I don't save much by being part of a group pledge (the biggest saving is going from 1 box to 2) and I often have trouble getting to GLOG to hand things over.

I'll leave mine in for now in hopes of getting us to 10 expansions and everyone getting a bit more of a discount but if it doesn't look like we'll make 10 I might withdraw from the group pledge if you or someone else is happy to take over. Happy to add a straggler or 2 of course but don't want to worry about getting games to 10 people for the sake of saving a couple of bucks each.

Ok everyone,as i mentioned above, I realised that the effort greatly exceeds reward for this group buy for me.

I'm going to pull out of managing a group pledge and (if I continue to back following some other purchases) get my two boxes delivered directly.

I'll update the main post so that it makes more sense but is still useful if someone else wants to manage a group buy or people want to pair up.

Apologies for messing people around.

Righto then. I'll make a pledge for 10 pack of Deluxe expansions. I'll work on the assumption that the list below reflects who wants what. Please let me know if it's not an accurate reflection of what you want to do. I'll report back later on how much it's going to cost each of us.

Base Game (Deluxe)
1.Michael

Expansion (Deluxe)
1. Dave
2. Michael
3. Simon
4. Cameron

6. Tim
7. Kon

Thanks for picking it up Simon and thanks for doing the initial organising Rob. Correct for me (base deluxe + expansion deluxe.)

It's not too late - but are you located in the ACT?

I can deliver to Civic during working hours, including the Wednesday lunchtime games meet-up. I could probably ask someone there to deliver to GLOG and I'm happy to make personal deliveries in the Belconnen area. I'm sure we can make other delivery arrangements for other parts of the ACT.

In terms of working out costs - The offered pledge levels are quite limited but all give access to the pledge manager afterwards. I have made a basic $36 (=24+12) single expansion pledge and when the pledge manager becomes available after the campaign ends, we'll be able to work out exact costs including postage for the things we want to buy.

I'm hoping we can get the price down to US$30 per game, but we might need a couple more takers for that and it also depends on how they treat a mix of expansions and base games. I'll divvy up postage on a per box basis, so people buying a base+expansion will pay more than those buying just the expansion. Exactly how I work that out will depend on how the postage is calculated in the pledge manager.

I hope that all works for everyone. As always, if you have any concerns please speak up. Otherwise I'll continue as planned.

I am in the ACT, near Belconnen. I have just started going to GLOG and going to KLOG tomorrow for the first time too. I am fine to pick up from anywhere in Canberra though, that's not an issue.

I've started another thread for this group buy, so we can keep the buyers and what they are buying in the top post easily. It is here:

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1642801/tiny-epic-galax...

Bethany, I've added you to the list.
