Gunship: First Strike! A hit on Kickstarter and soon available as a PreOrder!

OK, International guys - I think I have a plan.

I can send 4 copies of Gunship together for 55 bucks each plus 10 bucks each shipping. A lot of you have asked me about this and I finally have the numbers.

This was based on going to the UK - I assume other European countries are similar but we will check on a case-by-case basis. I downloaded stamps.com and it is a simple matter to check it for your country.

Grab 3 friends and geekmail me! I will start adding the levels on Kickstarter if we get interest in this.

Thanks!

Steve

"Buck" = ? USD or GB pound?

So, a 4 games bundle costs 55 USD * 4 + 10$ = 230$?

I think the sum should be $55 + $10 *4 = $260

The question is, do each of these copies come with the two mini-expansions (Asteroids and Crewmates)?

Castef had asked if the cost per game was 55 dollars each plus shipping.

I replied "Yes - same as the Gunship Crew level"

Then while I was typing that, some more posts were added

By the time mine shows up, it is not clear who I was saying yes to

lol

So, the right price is:

a) 55$ per copy plus 10$ for shipping for EACH copy (so, a total of 260$ for 4 copies, shipped)

or

b) 55$ per copy plus a total of 10$ for shipping (so, a total of 230$ for 4 copies, shipped)

?

Just "a" or "b" and we are done.

I think you should just add the bundles as reward levels now instead of waiting for people to request them. Maybe add a Europe level, an Asian level, and Australian/New Zealand level etc... If they are already available it would probably be more likely that someone would do it.

Also maybe a US bundle as well.

Another option for a new level would be a limited edition signed and numbered. Just like 100 of them that you will sign and number.

Good ideas on that second part.

The only trouble with a "Europe" bundle for example, is this:

Shipping is a LOT different between say, France and Romania. Not sure if local governments charge more for various reasons or what.

So by creating Europe bundles, I would be OK for most but would lose around 40 or 50 bucks on each bundle sold to the more expensive countries.

This shipping thing has really created a mess for me. Can't you people just come to my house to pick these up? I have cookies.

Steve

He DID offer the pizza party... maybe he should open up a few more of those?

A month-long pizza & Gunship roadshow!

But we like Steve. Why would we kill him by making him eat pizza for 30 days straight? Such a pain full way to go. He may not be recognizable be the end of it. Or maybe something strange will happen to him as he finishes the last piece of pizza on day 30 (thinks about fry and his 100th cup of coffee)
