Well, it looks like that $40K stretch goal is just about to fall -- in just about an hour. And I was trying to be funny when I suggested that! ;-)

Fingers crossed. (65$ postage + about 45 tax and custom for a 60$ item... I know it is the current and real cost but argh.

I am looking right now at plane tickets : cost around 280 for a 1 week round trip to NY in April 2019.... Anyone in the US willing to hold onto a box or 2 ? Could be an option...

That said, having the pdf option and the worst case shipping cost know upfront... thanks for a perfect communication.
And almost 40k already !

Kickstarter finally updated -- it shows it trending towards $1.2 million. Now that might even be possible! :-D
For what it's worth and YMMV, etc.

I have found the following:

For the first two days, you will tend to get about X dollars per day

For the last two days, you will tend to get between 50-70% of X per day

For EVERY DARN DAY IN THE MIDDLE, you will tend to get from 1/8 to 1/12 X



Disruptors to this exist:

1) A stretch goal that's wildly popular hits a planned release mid-campaign, or some social media outlet catches wind and provides a note. This is basically the Wil Wheaton/TableTop effect from any source.

2) Saturation is reached midway through; for Hall of Judgment, I was ripping along at $400-500 per day for about half the doldrums, maybe less, then fell to 200-250 for the rest of it. For my case, "X" was about $3,250. So went from 1/7 X per day to 1/13.

3) Something happens to dissuade folks, or it becomes clear that something's rotten in Denmark. Ridiculously unlikely in this case given everything we've seen and activity on the forums, previews, etc.

4) There's been a recent trend of "wait until the last minute" with some KS; when it happens, you get a ridiculously awesome run-away effect. Folks "F5" fingers report for ER care afterwards.

Anyway, that little guess: 2 days of X, 2 days of about 0.6X, and "the rest of the time" at 1/10 X will at least get the missile in the right ballpark of the target.

Man, that really is expensive. I sure hope SJGs can do something to help there. (I'd hold some boxes for you, but I live in the boonies in the north of California -- don't think you can make it out here!)

Hello everyone.

New user but have been following TFT Kickstarter with interest.
Was going to get the "I Want It All" but $56 US for shipping to Canada is a bit rich for me. I noticed I'm not the only one balking at the cost.
If the shipping cost gets dropped due to heavy KS support, I'll be happy to grab it.

Looks to be going very well for the first day.

By the way, the TFT banner link on the website is broken: it has one too many h's in the address link: (hhttps:...)
Might want to fix that...

Good luck SJ and congrats on getting the game system back in your hands.

The PDF option has zero shipping. If we can find a cheaper option for shipping, we'll use it. At the moment, we've listed the best price we can guarantee.
