We made it! Thank you everyone for your support, and for making the Tinker Deck possible! It’s been a great couple of weeks, and we ‘re very grateful for your support.
We do have 12 days and change left, so it’s natural to wonder, now what?
Well, we’d love to get these decks out to anyone who might be interested. Please keep spreading the word. We believe these to be a great design, and it’s been really great to hear others like it! The more the merrier!
We also have a handful of stretch goals in mind, as noted in the main campaign.
First, at $12,000, we’ll make custom seals for every deck. They will look something like this (the Rusty Tinker Deck will, of course, have its own, if we get to make that deck, too):
At $13,000, we’ll make new Gearpunk Gamer Dice sets available as Add-Ons. These are the Gearpunk dice designs from the Tinker Dice campaign, but a new batch in Black Nickel, a new finish. We ordered them in between campaigns for future plans, and this qualifies. (So they aren’t going to be draining funding from the cards themselves.) That finish looks something like this, over on the right side of the image… sorry we don’t have the production photos of the dice themselves yet:
Each Gearpunk Gamer set will have a D4, D6, D8, D10, D10 “decader”, D12 and a D20 and a random color leather pouch, for $40 (just like the other sets we have in the limited quantity pledge tiers).
At $14,000, we’ll introduce the Gearchips, which will come in two forms (unless you’d like us to make a different set available, that is). Specifically, we’ll have two sets unlocked as Add-Ons:
One, the “Gearchip Sampler”: $7 for 5 Gearchips, 39mm chips looking something like this, in five different finishes. (Chrome for white, Copper for red, Black Nickel for blue, Antiqued Bronze for green, Dyed Black for, well… black, roughly correlating with some standard poker chip colors.)
Two, the “Gearchip Playset”: $90 for 100 Gearchips, 20 of each color. (We’ve actually already ordered a production batch of these, too, so again, these are incidentals that we had paid for outside of the funding for this campaign, we’re just making them available.)
The big goal, though, the one we’d really love to see, is what happens at $20,000. It’s a bit of a jump, but it’s something we can get to if we keep getting new people on board.
If we can reach that goal, we can make the Rusty Tinker Deck happen.
This is another fully customized deck, effectively the Tinker Deck after a bit of time in the field, or after spending some time in a machinery warehouse or mining colony. All of the art will be rusted and aged, picking up some nice oxidized green, brown and red tones here and there. The silvers of the Hearts and Diamonds will be closer to the traditional reds, and everything will have a nice patina of age. They will come with their own custom tuck box and seals, just like the main Tinker Deck. We will make uncut sheets available for them as well. You can see some of the preview images over at Max’s website at this link, or in our update on the deck.
The Rusty Tinker Decks will be available as a “deck pick” for any pledge tier. If you’ve pledged for one deck, you can pick either. If you’ve pledged for two or more, you can get them all in one style, all in the other style, or half in each style.
Thank you, everyone, for making this all happen! We’re looking forward to the next week and a half, and hopefully, we can make some more awesome cards for everyone!
Also, please note that we’re still running the cross promotion with Ferrel’s Havok & Hijinks game, presently in its last two days on Kickstarter, where you can pick up a pair of exclusive Tinker Dragon coins if you back both projects; his for at least $15 and ours for at least $11.
