I suspect there will be a lot of people who will back the Black Friday Gambler's Lantern/Silver Lantern levels and not realise it doesn't include the core game.
They need to be renamed to "Black Friday Gambler's Lantern Upgrade"/"Silver Lantern Upgrade" and say "Core game not included!"

If people can't read enough to figure that out they wouldn't be able to play the game anyway.

True, but it's better to prevent these situations than have a bunch of angry people. It could be a confused parent purchasing a gift for his kid or something.

Yeah, I probably wouldn't show this game to my kids or my parents.

Fine a non-gamer buying a gift for their gamer spouse lol. Or an artist backing just to paint the minis.

It wouldn't hurt to make things clearer and more user-friendly. It just means more money (which means better stretch goals for us) and less drama.

*hangs head in shame* I initially did this, mainly because of the madness surrounding the number of pledge levels and the highly limited nature of some of them.

I am naturally suspicious though, and once I read through the (rather confusing) information, upped it to the core set pledge.

This.

All you have to do is take a moment to read the description to see that these levels don't include the base game. It's not hard. And there certainly doesn't need to be a post on here complaining about it. That's just silly.

If this Kickstarter is handled with a pledge manager as the last one was, there will be plenty of time after the Kickstarter ends for bakcers to allocate their pledges to suit their needs.

I agree. Clearly people shouldn't be allowed to vote or use their own money because they might be tricked. If only we knew someone whose broad shoulders could hold up control of all the votes and monies...hmmm... whistle

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

Everyone give me all your money, and I will distribute pledge rewards that are suitable for each of you.

I mentioned several instances in my second post about situations where people wouldn't play the game. And in this thread there is an example of someone intelligent making the mistake.
I also saw a few online posts where people were corrected about the pledge levels.

Anyways, you can't rename reward levels and Poots mentioned which levels have the core in the last update.
