Folks, I have backed dozens and dozens of projects (25 in the past couple years alone) - and I have to say, this one feels very poorly launched and executed thus far. There has been zero communication from the creators or organizers in 5 days? Comments are being posted, ques...

I am a Japanese national living in Japan. I found this work very attractive from an environmental and gaming point of view. However, due to the large number of cards, I believe that it is very language-dependent and will be a tough barrier for multilingual users. As a Japanese...

I think my two biggest concerns for this are how to scale the difficulty of the game (solving climate change is hard, and it would be great to have an easier version than one based on reality to get some wins under our belt and encourage us to get there), plus I would love to ...

I love the concept of this game... but I am starting to think crowdfunding lost its way and become a cash grab with no tangible benefits for backers. No exclusives, opaque prices, no net discount... where are the benefits of backing this game now? Why is shipping hidden? Why ...

Hi, I think the game mechanics seem very interesting but the graphic design could be improved. Also, I think the box cover with the boat and the city on the background was much more striking than the new cover. Regarding the rules and stretch goals, are you planning to show ...

I love cooperative games, love engine-building games like Terraforming Mars, and know climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing us today, so this game was a definite yes for me. But, it seems really hard to find good games that cater to more than four players (at...

I saw that there are only rough estimates for US (<$10) and Canada ($15-20). I live in Singapore, which usually gets bucketed into a second Asia group (outside of China, which is closer to manufacturing). I'm interested in supporting this campaign -- I loved Pandemic and backe...

I'm not seeing any crowdfunding exclusive or sufficient cost saving. With the additional international shipping, it's probably cheaper and safer to wait for the retail distribution. Is it all about supporting the designer/publisher?

Why so much blank background in the cards? The beautiful art should be more predominant. Any chance to improve iconography? Different iconography styles do not look that good.
