We're aiming for $25,000. I don't know if that's a little or a lot, but it's an intimidating number regardless. And to get a copy of the base game, a supporter needs to pledge $85 ($79 if you're an "early bird"). That certainly sounds like a lot, but I guess I can say a couple things about it. First, I didn't have much say in that number. That's just Eagle Games crunching the numbers. Second, like most modern board games, Clockwork Wars is a quality product. The production value here is very high, and we're obtaining individual art-work for over 70 different cards and game components. Each one of those pieces costs money. There will be wooden components, tons of big hexagonal tiles to build maps with, and at least 3 unique miniatures. Since I designed this game to play very differently every time, I think you're getting a lot of bang for your admittedly high buck.
Fingers crossed! Anxiety levels high! Enthusiasm peaking! Hope to see you on our Kickstarter page tomorrow.
