Why no stretch goals?

We understand that there’s been an expectation that’s created for stretch goals during a campaign. What we don’t like about that system is it doesn’t allow you to present the game as complete from day one. Instead, it forces you to bleed pieces out a few days at a time. We wanted to show our backers real value right from the start, so we put a vast majority of things we had tabbed for stretch goals into the box from day one (including the free Capital City miniature pack!).

With the help of many, we believe Pest to be something truly special, and we want to show everyone how special it is right from the start. We do have some upgrades we are already considering for the campaign, and we are still waiting to hear back on costs. If we can fit those upgrades in under our budget, we’ll add them directly to the campaign with no stretch goal mark required. We hope you trust us to be able to decide what’s best for the game.

Do you ship to my country?

YES! We will attempt to make every delivery possible for this campaign. We do have hubs around the world that will help make this possible. If you don’t see your country listed, it falls under the Rest Of World shipping rate. A reminder that the price you see are estimates, and the final shipping charge will be calculated in the pledge manager.

Will VAT be collected?

Yes, as mentioned in the campaign, in compliance with the EU and UK laws, VAT and UK tax will be charged in the pledge manager after the campaign ends.

March of 2024? Why so long before we get Pest in our hands?

We love your enthusiasm. However, the manufacturing chain is still recovering from the past two years. We are trying to be realistic rather than make promises that are more like hopes. There are also two Chinese New Year windows during our fulfillment timeline, so we tried to take this into account.

“That's a MASSIVE board!”

Yes, it is! We wanted to show off the empire in as much detail as possible. However, we are aware of the “table hog” concerns, and we are working on finding solutions regarding this.

What about the rulebook?

We have shared the rulebook in the campaign, so we can continue to gather feedback from important people (like our backers!) as we continue to refine it and make it as great as possible. It’s definitely far from a final product, so please do take a look and share your thoughts with us!

Will there be a Solo Mode?

We know there is a vibrant and enthusiastic solo gaming community. Because of this, we are investigating the possibility of a solo mode. It’s a bit too early to tell if it wil be possible (we want to make sure it’s a GOOD solo mode, not just one to lure you in), but we will keep everyone in the loop if we reach a point where we feel it’s a possibility.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
