Hi. With the upgraded components what will you be using for money (cogs)? Will it be paper money? Cardboard? Poker chips?

Also, will the Compactor card be a kickstarter exclusive?

Thanks!

Another question - the $45 funding level refers to a limited edition version. Is the only difference the outside box wrap?

Hi there Todd,

I will let the guys at Nevermore respond about the cogs components. But the $45 level and up includes the box wrap and the Kickstart mechanism, both of which, I believe, are exclusive. We promised 9 mechanisms in the Kickstarter video. The Compactor, our third stretch goal, will be the 10th. And if you backed at the $45 level or higher, you'll receive the Kickstart, too, which will be the 11th.

Hi Todd,

First and foremost, thanks for backing!

I'll mirror what Ben Rosset said first... the $45 Limited Edition version includes the Kickstart mechanism (exclusive to the campaign) and the "Space Jack" box wrap which is limited edition. We will most likely have some of those left over that we'll give away now and then for special promos, so we didn't want to say "exclusive" on the box wraps.

The cogs will be made of punch board and have a very cool design. Once we have all of the art done for those we'll post some pictures.

Thanks!

Great! Very excited. Just was hoping that the limited edition included upgraded cogs...something like the coins from Ages of Empires. Anyway, very excited to back this project.

This is NOT a Chihuahua. It is a Sphynx cat. A bald, grouchy Sphynx cat who will bite you if you mistake him for a Chihuahua.

Our current design doesn't include plastic coins (like AOE), but cardboard cogs that will look much more interesting than plain, round discs. We were inspired to some extent by the money in Lords of Waterdeep, which is pretty cool.
