Hi everyone,

6 months ago I set up a group pledge for Santorini (London group buy 3). As I speak ive already sent out the postal ones and meeting some people in-person, to 20 other backers. With the blessing of the creators here, I am setting up a group-buy pledge of TORTUGA 1667, with the hope of banding together a team of scallywags and pirates to make this happen.

I am doing this to help get a great game funded, as I backed Salem previously and the quality of components was spectacular and an awesome game, and this game will do better with more SGs hit, if I band together a group of people for this new KS, Tortuga 1667.

https://www.kickstarter.com/…/tortuga-1667-a-pirate-game-of…

So long as I have a minimum of 10 people, I am happy to front the cost of the 20 copy pledge, with money paid to me for each copy after the campaign ends. (2 copies max per person). Its $23 plus $8 postage for one copy ($31), or $250 plus $30 postage for 20 copies = $14, plus shipping & packaging of about £5.50 with MyHermes. Postage money will be paid as soon as I have them in-hand and ready to send.

I must add that if there is any unexpected shipping/import duties, I will have to split them, but I am not expecting there to be any.

There is a possibility of meeting up in London to hand these over to save on postage, if you work around Old Street, or have Old Street/London Bridge/Liverpool Street en-route to work.

Please not that this is the sole group of 20 at this price as I inspired the new 10 copy backer level, so this is a rare group! I have been told I cannot go beyond 20, so it really is firsy come first serve!

If you are interested, please PM me, or comment below, and let me know if you want one or two copies. Any questions, please feel free to message me.

Regards


Sebastian (aka Arakin on Kickstarter)

I have pledged the full $280, so once I pay, I will see how much it 'actually' cost me with exchange rates etc. I will then divide it between the group and ask for payment by Paypal 'as a friend'. I will gather everyones email addresses and send an email around for this. I will then create a spreadsheet and as soon as they all arrive, I will work out the cost of postage and packaging and ask people for the second payment, keeping that as small as possible for everyone.

For Santoring, it was £5.30, but it might even come out at less as this is smaller.

Do feel free to PM me with your email address, as thats the first thing I need to gather.

Sebastian

Sorry for not finalising everything everyone. I have the pledge manager to do this week to confirm final costs.

Just been buying a house this past week so everything's a bit mental! Fear not, Ill get on top of this by the end of the week hopefully

Hi Seb,

Just had a look at the KS page and it looks like the pirates are about to land. Hopefully you still have a game reserved for me!

Hi all,

As I know you are eagerly awaiting news, the shipment just arrived today. I need a free evening to send out the mailer to the group for address /pick-up, postage costs etc, but just wanted to let you know. Ive got a busy few days at work, but hoping to send email out Thurs evening, with postage on Sat for super fast payees.

Im now working very near to London Bridge, as my office just moved over the weekend, so if you want pick-up, then the station there is best.

Kind regards


Sebastian

I hope Arakin doesnt mind me posting this here, but I have been part of his last 2 group buys and I am trying to arrange one of my own for the current Kickstarter campaign for: Detective: City of Angels https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vanrydergames/detective...

Details here https://boardgamegeek.com/article/27188878#27188878

Would be great to have some of you onboard

Hi Arakin, I wondered if you are organising a group pledge for their new game, Deadwood?
