More player characters?
I’d love to see more than 4 choices for player characters, so one can choose your favorite person to be, rather than being forced to pick a guy for example if you have 4 players.
Project Update: 🍃🌰Update #8- First Look at Solo Play! 🍒🧄
It has been 21 days since I gave you my feedback on the Marketing for this campaign and asked if you could publish the Rulebook, even if it is a rough google doc. Have I missed any updates on the Rulebook, I rechecked, and can't find any. It would be be appreciated, if we could read the game materials. I wish the game had gotten better traction and more backers, the Pledge page in Backerkit needed a tweak in organization and more copy. Alas, the Campaign is closing.
Project Update: 🌾🥕Update #6- Final Results for the Community Chosen Ingredients!🧄🫐
Plushie, book, and expansions?
Are there any previews for the plushie, book, or expansions? The details are a bit vague. Any chance there will be recipes in the book?
Project Update: 🍒🧄 Update #3-What Ingredients Would You Like to See in the Game? 🍃🌰
Is there a way, that we can get shaped deluxe wooden components like in creature comforts? Maybe you can make the components a little thiner, I think they are very thick. And does it really need two separate components for the main board and the ressources? You can place also a normal ressource at the main board.
Project Update: 🍃🌰Update #5- Vote for Your Favorite Ingredient!🍄🌱
Shipping to Kuwait
Hello, I would like to start by saying Wow, what an amazingly gorgeous game you have here !! May I ask if you can ship to Kuwait and in case you can what would the shipping rate be for my pledge. Thank you
Art cards/postcards as add-ons?
I would LOVE to see some prints or postcards of some of the beautiful artwork in the game as an add-on for the project. Is that at all possible?? I want this art on my wall and want to put it in frames!!
Project Update: Update #4- Join Isaac and Lindsey for a Live Playthrough of Wild Gardens!
Recipes on the recipe cards?
I didn't notice anything about this (and I apologize if it has been asked or stated already), but we are wondering if there wilp be actual recipes on the recipe cards? Just a thought, without any knowledge of spacing, backs, etc. Thanks, and we're REALLY excited for this one!
Just edited my pledge level
Hi, I just edited my pledge level from 1 dollar a minute ago, because I want to join the contest. However, does that affect the original 72 hours promo gift? thanks.
How will I know I got the Early Bird Promo?
I’m pretty sure I got the early bird promo (pledged the second day of launch on Thursday the 23rd), but it’s no where shown on my pledge. How will I know that I got the early bird promo?
Project Update: 🌺🍃Wild Gardens Has Funded!!!🌿🌻
Player token and board
I just backed but I would like to use the little cute spirit as player token and on the player mat. Is there an option to use the cute spirit to do so?
Marketing, Rulebooks and Pricing
Ok, I have pledged in Backerkick, unfortunately it still hinges in being able to read the rulebook as it stands right now. I have watched the few videos available, and I know that they have a nice looking rulebook. Please post the Rulebook, even if it is a temporary google doc. Unfortunately, I only pledged for the game ($50 plus $16 delivery to the US), since the game gorgeous wood pieces are PRICEY! They are priced between $0.22 - 0.25 each. Wood has gone up in price and this game has very few backers, yet the BIG deluxe games we recently received and/or pledged were less dollars and they contained a huge number of meeples. Games like La Granja Deluxe, last 3 deluxe KS from KTBG [Power Plants with 72 wood tiles and meeples almost has 300 pieces], Septima Deluxe, CoMKL Royal Collectors, were much less and have a huge number of heat printed, silk printed and plain meeples plus metal pieces, they were All-in less than $125. Perhaps, the price of those add-ons could be lower with a greater production number? The pricing of the main game at $50 is attractive, as well as the art book price for $30. I have gotten several art books (in particular Flamecraft Deluxe and Everdell Collection), and they are much liked, yet I would also like to know details like size, paper stock, binding, number of pages. The number of pages of the Flamecraft book was almost doubled and it was a nice surprise. The books needs better marketing, more photos, more details need to be posted. Every Crowdfunding campaign should study the campaigns for Flamecraft, Isle of Cats Big Box, and KTBG campaigns (Helaina makes them fun!). Those campaigns were able to engage and excite their backers so much, that it was fun to participate in them, and post in the comments daily and share in social media. Lots of backers became cheerleaders, spreading the awareness of the campaign by participating in the daily challenges, posting fan art related to the games, exchanging ideas about the theme and creating stories. Oh the stories from Septima were awesome; the participation and competition in selecting the final look of Power Plants was ferocious; Flamecraft daily posting was pure cute overload (the excitement was insane) and the wealth of marketing materials kept trickling down; Frank West (The Isle of Cats) was a charm monsters with daily comments, podcasting, games and personally responding to every comment and engaging with every backer was amazing. If there are campaign masters, the Flamecraft team, Frank West and Helaina Cappel are "IT". The amount of dates and events lined up for each day of their campaigns reflected a lot of hard work and deep connection with their backers. The Comment sections here and at BGG should be filled with engagement from the creators and cheerleaders. I think Wild Gardens has the same potential as those amazing big campaigns of 13k to 2k backers. Just like those other games, the art in Wild Gardens is spectacular, the graphic design seems solid, and if the game play is engaging, this game should gather similar attention, it deserves it. Good luck to the Creators of Wild Gardens, and I sincerely hope to see more than paid crowdfunding previews. I want a photographic tour of your work, rulebook discussions and tons of varied videos like in the campaign of Septima. In the crowdfunding page I need a wealth of information and photos like Frank West included in the last The Isle of Cats KS page or how clear Mindclash presented Septima in a KS page. Where's my designer diary? Where is my cute swag, ok I always buy stuffed animals, last one I order was for Collab Deluxe and I cannot wait for Cathulu and the included Art Prints. We have our collection of Art Prints from board games in an album at home, waiting to maybe be framed. You got me covered with the plushy, so where's my metal pin like those of 25th Century games, or cute stickers, maybe more bookmarks with your excellent art. Where is the All-In Package and I can't say NO to? Ok, maybe I need to back a bit less... so $50 plus shipping it is, afterall it is only your 2nd campaign, but what a cute looking game it is! Yes, I will get my heart broken once it will be available in online retail shops for less and free shipping, it always happens with some publishers. Best of luck and don't forget to motivate us to forage. It is Spring baby!🌷🌻🥀
