Title: Kickstarter Help Wanted
Post by: Khonnor on March 23, 2013, 07:16:10 AM
I was hoping a fellow Carc-fan would be able to help me out.

Especially one in the Orlando/Kissimee area...

I have a few games on Kickstarter I'd be interested in backing (and a few to come, for sure), but shipping costs to Europe are insane for some of these games! In the end I just can't justify backing these games, which is unfortunate. I'll be staying in WDW for 21 days in October/November and was wondering if someone would be willing to let me 'use' their address for the games to arrive yet, and arrange a pick-up while I'm there in Oct/Nov? I know it might be a lot to ask, but if anyone might be able to help me out, contact me so we could work out the details. Ofcourse I'd be willing to pay a small fee for any inconvenience, or take you out for a lunch or bring you a small Dutch gift, or...?  :)

I have been contacting the publishers of these games on Kickstarter, but so far they're not very willing (perhaps understandably so) to figure out a way to hold the games for me and not ship them out till October. As of now, it would be two kickstarter projects (3 games in total), so two boxes. But I'm pretty sure there might be 2 or 3 more.....if I can restrain myself... ;D

Just thought I'd throw it out there...any other help or advise would be welcome too, ofcourse...

If I lived near WDW I would totally help you out with this, but I don't.

Kickstarter is definitely the bane of my existence. My spending has gotten completely out of control. :'(

Mine too! I've pledged to Small World 2 ($49), Walk the Plank! ($30), and Flash Point ($100!!!). And I also have Gunship: Afterburners possibly in a bit (still haven't played the base game yet...lol) and D-Day Dice: War Stories in a few months. Hopefully nothing else comes out soon that I want because I'm already losing money each month and these "expenses" aren't helping.
