Thanks for the post ~ we certainly appreciate it.
To all…we knew going into this endeavor we were appealing to a niche group of players. Those that don't rely on gadgets for their inventory of cards and certainly those who have both the economic means and available space for these luxury items. In the end, "you do get what you pay for" and that's very true. Given some insightful feedback at our KS site, Facebook page, and our personal e-mails, we're retooling our project for a 30-day run.
What keeps us going? Well, first the nearly two dozen individuals who want to see this project succeed because they've pledged money. Also, the countless others who have loved the project ~ I've personally written to over 100 individuals on this forum alone. Finally, while in Hong Kong last week speaking with distributors both in Kowloon and on Hong Kong Island, there's actually interest in our pieces…if we can make the price point more attractive. To that end, we're working closely with our mold and casting company Valiant Enterprises to do just that. If we can tighten our collective belt, we'll do whatever we can to reduce the initial goal and bring down the costs for each Stretch Goal.
What's next? First, we'll launch another Kickstarter by the end of the month should we not achieve the initial 10K Goal. It will be a limited 30-day run and we hope to have the support of our current contributors. Next, at least one of us shall attend both Origins and Comic-Con next year as a guest of an individual who is quite familiar with FFG's line and runs a Cthulhu's Corner out in San Diego.
To those who have contributed, we can't thank you enough as you've displayed your faith in us and our project. For those who have questions, comments, or feedback, we'll certainly listen…again, this is your project too…anyone who loves the game and wants to bring more theme to the game table.
