Does anyone else keep checking the KICKSTARTER website?


Recommended Posts

Just another 4000 till the next update (at 235k). ::D:

 

On those prepaid mastercards.. do you have to pay any sort of extra fee? Can you get one with about $500, spend it, and then pretty much toss the card?

It depends on where you buy it from. Stay away from the ones at Walmart - they essentially make you setup a non-free checking account to use them. Got one for a gift one time, and it was a freaking major headache to finally use the money on the card. Read the terms and conditions carefully of any other of the "off the rack" ones you see at other stores.

 

The best sources for something like this are Credit Unions. Most of the time they're free or very cheap to set up for higher dollar amounts. If you're not a credit union member, typically if you know someone who is, they can set the account up for you. However, there may be a wait to get the card, so be careful on that front.

Yes, but I like the illusion of control.......

It is very addictive!   It is my Big Brother show for the month...   ... Without the tramps attention whores of course.   I've never done Kickstarter before this campaign. Lots of fun.

You mean like have it open, and watch it through out the day, and log the totals I see periodically in a spreadsheet so i can see just how how far it goes while I'm working?   No, No, I don't do tha

On their facebook post: Matthew Paul Clark We are working on some sort of solution to this problem... I'll get back with you.

 

I'll bug em again about it when there's less than 15 days left to pledge. Hate to bug em much right now about it. Besides, I should be moving soon so I might need to have the minis shipped to a different address anyways.

 

Edit: Besides, I'm sure they'd want to include anyone who frequently uses their online store. They have a paypal option for their store, so why not include it in this as well? It will probably be an option near the end of the kickstarter.. though I wish I could contribute to the total.

 

Credit cards just don't agree with me. I don't like the idea of all the red tape, commitments, interest, etc..

Kickstarter doesn't care if we send a link to paypal to our users, but you're right, it doesn't contribute to the overall goal.

 

We'll have something that will appeal to you at the end of the campaign.

 

But for obvious reasons, we would prefer that people who can pledge do. It helps us and everyone else who pledges.

If I can give you guys a bit of advice do not use Paypal for pre orders. If you receive/make X amount of money withing Y amount of time your Paypal account will be locked up.

 

Use Google Check out or something else. I do not want this to happen to reaper Miniatures.

No worries. PayPal wants to keep our business. They told me so.

Good to hear!

 

Just I Stray on the side of caution... When it comes to pay pal at least.

 

As I get deeper and deeper into Kickstarter-ism (Yes it is almost a religion now)

I have to ask when will Reaper take my money?!

 

Reaper mini's this is aimed at you!

Take it all Dang it!

 

You did not take enough of MY money!

 

I know what I pledged! Just take more! I need my toy soldiers and monsters!

 

My life is complete! :upside:

 

In all seriousness - Reaper keep up the AWESOME work -

Keep your prices low for the average Joe gamer and Keep churning out those awesome minis and you will keep my business.

Kinda reading between the lines there, and the after campaign deal sounds good, but not as good as the KS campaign itself. I guess that's expected though.

Maybe I can convince a friend to let me use their debit card on Amazon. Then I could cancel the account after I get the last minis.

Contact your local bank branches and see if any of them sell American Express or Visa gift cards to non-members. You'll pay a premium upfront for them, but they are a universaly accepted at any retailer that accepts Amx or Visa. At bank I worked at we sold gift cards to members at a better fee than non-members, but we did sell them to anyone.

There are two types of cards: Pre-paid and Gift. Pre-paid are unofficial checking accounts with lots of hidden fees. The benefit is they can be reloaded and usually have a lower up front fee. Gift Cards OTOH have a one time up front fee and after that the money is on the card until it is gone. Some Gift Cards will start charging maintainence fees if the money isn't gone within a year or two, so just use the card up as soon as possible. Always get gift cards, not pre-paid cards if you're trying to live without debit/credit cards.

Visa gift cards lack fees, period. Pick one up at Walgreens. Last I saw, they were trying to put a Walgreens on every street corner on the planet...

 

And anyplace that can manage a Visa card can handle a Visa gift card.

      Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter.  Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet.  We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be.  By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet:
       
      Narglauth
      Dragon Turtle
      Agramon, Duke of Hell
      Blacksting Wyvern
      All of the Fantasy Scenics
      Thunderfoot Behemoth
      Blacktooth Terror
      Dance of Death
      Mossbeard Treeman
      Skeletal Dragon
      Nyarlathotep
      Argent
      Gauth
       
      Am I missing anything?  Any word from Reaper about whether or not these will ever be available againt, outside of the Bones 4 Kickstarter?

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.
