Tales of the Caribbean Kickstarter

Post by Nvision » Wed Sep 09, 2015 12:00 pm

It's live now! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/go ... -caribbean Despite the terrible state of the Canadian dollar, this is a must purchase for me. They've got scenarios set in both of my parents' homelands, Jamaica and the teeny tiny St. Vincent (I might even try to get them to sit down and a play through a game). There's also the chance to pick up the previous books if you missed out on 'em!

The shipping costs to Canada are putting me off, as much as I would like to patronize this project.

Yikes...based on the pledge descriptions it looked like shipping was included. For the smallest physical pledge, with the dollar as it is, it works out to $80 :? Also, there's no POD option for Canada. Guess I'll have to wait on this one.

Didn't the fixing issue sort of get fixed for Oz and the EU? I'm not sure about Canada.

I just backed this yesterday. Its my first time backing a kickstarter. I'm excited. I have all of the other Tales books including De Horrore Cosmico (I know its not a Tales but it might as well be). I hope it can get backed to the next stretch goal. Its about 1000 away. The next goal is the Guidebook to the Caribbean. Come on guys, help promote it. I know I put a few tweets out and facebook posts. Fingers crossed, 4 more days.

Less than $300 now. They will likely make this one and possibly the next.

So I thought I'd give you guys a heads up. The stretch goal for the Guide to the Caribbean has been met and Mr. Rios has updated the campaign with a new add on. For $18 US you can have the Guide as a physical book via Print on Demand. If you've already backed, I would greatly suggest this add on or if you haven't back, you can now get two books (not counting the other tales book levels). Let's help make the guide even better (and possibly add yet another scenario to the main book).
