How does BackerKit crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding is a collaborative way to bring ideas and projects to life. Project creators post their idea for a project, and backers pledge money to make the project possible. Backers get behind the scenes access and backer-only rewards, which can include exclusive products, special pricing, creative input, content, and more.
To become a backer, select a pledge level that features the reward(s) you would like to receive when the project is successfully completed and make your contribution.
All-or-nothing crowdfunding model: The creator sets a funding goal and a deadline to raise funds. If the project does not meet the goal by the deadline, backers credit cards are not charged and no money changes hands.
Crowdfunding projects can happen at various stages of the creative process. Make sure to check the estimated timeline of when rewards will be delivered. Project creators will keep you updated on the progress toward completion and delivery of your rewards.
Backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing an item from a store. When you back a campaign you are supporting the creation of something new. Rewards are almost always delivered, but are not guaranteed.
When will I be charged for my pledge?
Your payment method will not be charged right away. You will be charged for the amount of your pledge when the campaign ends and the project reaches its funding goal. You will not be charged if the campaign does not reach its funding goal.
What happens after the campaign is over?
The Creator will send out a survey that will ask you for more information about your pledge, your shipping information, additional items you may want to add to your pledge, and collect shipping fees if applicable.
The survey will be sent to the email address we have on file with your pledge.
Any additional payment will be charged when you complete your survey and confirm your order.
Will the Black Cube be available at retail if I don't pledge for this campaign?
We intend to make the Black Cube available from the MCG Shop, and it will presumably be stocked by retailers who back this campaign. We don’t anticipate that there will be a large quantity available through standard retail channels. And given our experience with the prior two printings, we don’t expect it to be available for long—through any channel—after this printing reaches us. The best way to be sure to get a copy is definitely through the campaign!
I already have some of the supplements, so I don't want to back for all of them. How do I get just the ones I want?
Some of the existing supplements are available on the MCG Shop (www.montecookgames.com/store) right now—you can simply head over there and purchase them! Those not currently available on the MCG Shop should come back into print in 2024, as we reprint those titles following this campaign.
How long do I have to adjust my pledge after I back this campaign?
We intend to keep the pledge manager open for several weeks after the campaign closes—at least into December. (We have kept the pledge manager open for longer periods for prior campaigns, but because we’ll begin the reprinting process immediately after this campaign closes, we won’t be able to keep the pledge manager open for an extended period.)
When will my rewards be ready, and how will I get them?
Check the Timeline section of the main campaign page for details of when we expect to ship rewards. And be sure to read the Shipping section of the main campaign page. There’s a link there to a detailed description of our fulfillment process.
