Hi,

I found out about this game and the Kickstarter campaign yesterday. I've never backed a project though and was unaware it was ending so soon so I slept on buying in last night. I went back to back it this morning but I think I missed out by about an hour. Pretty bummed about it, and was wondering if there would be any way to purchase a copy now.

(Also new to BGG so Im not sure if this is even the right place to post this. Apologies if it is not)

It is the correct place to post and I'm sure Brent will post soon. Alternatively, you can message him on kickstarter

Welcome to the Hobby!

Lesson Learned about Kickstarter:
If you're inside of 48 hours of the campaign ending and are still "thinking about it", WATCH THAT CLOCK!

I've missed several Kickstarter projects because I got the 48 hour notice and said to myself, "Heh, I still have 48 hours to think about it."

So you put it on the "back burner" (only for a few hours, right?) and the next thing you know, normal life takes hold of your going thoughts. Later you suddenly remember about that Kickstarter game and pray there's still time left, as you "just" decided you want to back it after all!

So you run to the computer/lap top/smart phone/etc to check the Kickstarter page only to find that the campaign ended 25 minutes ago! Argh! I hate it when that happens. And it's happened several times.

Though on the bright side, think of much money I've saved!

I just got my field & scorecard files approved and there are Print and Play (PnP) block players in the files area as well. You cant least cobble together a basic game to get the feel.

I'm sure that there'll be extra copies available after the kickstarter batch is made, it will just depend on how much investment Brent can make to get the higher volume discounts. Runs are usually in multiples of 250 from what I've seen in previous campaigns.

I jumped in at the $10 Pixel Pack only due to timing issues indwell eventually pick up a physical copy.

Good Luck!

Were you following me? You described my experience with this game. Still, it might be for the best since I had doubts about getting it played.

I'll be offering those that just missed the Kickstarter a chance to preorder and secure a copy of this version of the game once I know exactly how many are being produced and have calculated what I need to hold back for extras, reviewers, awards, etc. Follow here on BGG, on Kickstarter, and on my site to make sure to get the alert.

Don't be late this time! You missed all the fun!!meeple

Hello,

I just found out about this game and would be interested in learning more about it and taking it for a "test drive." Is there anyway to buy the "pixel pack" that was available on kickstarter?

The pixel pack will be available for purchase soon! Stay tuned here on BGG, Kickstarter, and my site for updates.
