Wow, shipping is expensive. Looks great but I'll have to pass. Good luck though.

I'll say. The game costs us in Europe twice its retail price. That's harsh. It's getting too much for me through numerous campaigns, unfortunately.

I understand. Shipping is expensive. But maybe I'm missing something?

To get the game in the UK or EU is $29 with shipping. The game retails at $20... so, that's not twice retail. We're doing our best, guys.

If you can manage to get a group buy sorted - even at the x2 level - the price drops considerably. Just try to convince one of your gaming friends to join in or keep the second copy as a gift. I wouldn't mind getting this for my birthday whistle

Looks like a great little card game. Reminds me of something Sid Sackson would have come out with. Backed and proud

I based my calculation on the pledge asked for the base game, which is $15, so with shipping ($14), the cost is twice the price of the game in this pledge tier.

Sorry for not being precise enough

Got my 48 hour reminder from Kickstarter yesterday.

Were the PnP files pulled? At launch I saw a "coming soon" message and now I do not see anything at all.

Hey there, they were never pulled. I'm sending an update about this today. They are going out to backers after the campaign ends. Just trying to get everything done. Sorry!

I was under the assumption that they would be available as low-art or something to play before backing the campaign.

Apologies for my misunderstanding.

We weren't very clear, and I apologize. I can certainly send you the rough files if you'd like them. The campaign ends tomorrow though.

The rough files would be great! My wife and I are both off work tomorrow and I can get it crafted and a game or 2 in before the campaign ends.
