Has the survey for confirming addresses been sent out yet? No problem if not but I wanted Yo check as I’m moving house soon and need to make sure that I haven’t got the old address on any of my crowdfund pledges. I’m not very familiar with BackerKit so wanted to double check.

Unfortunately I need to cancel my pledge. I still believe in the project, but I will have to wait until retail. How do I go about cancelling, and will I receive a complete refund? Thanks.

As someone living in the EU, I've become reluctant to pledge to boardgame crowdfunding projects because of the high shipping fees and -VAT charges. Is there a way to get access to the pledge manager without pledging the full amount, or will there be a late pledge option?

Hi there, just wondering if the board and components are final or whether there'll be an opportunity to redesign them or tweak them a bit? Is there any desire to see this, amongst other backers? I'm not finding the board in particular very engaging.

Hi, love this idea for a boardgame. What is the replayability like with this game? I play mostly with 4 players but will be playing 2 player aswell. Does it just get repetitive after like 20 play throughs or is it truly replayable?

Hey, I would only ever play this with two players. How much of the experience is lost at that player count or will we be able to get the intended experience at that player count as well? Looking for an honest answer since that will inform my decision
