Can i pledge for additional copies of the Deus lo Vult?

For such cases, we allow adding 2 more games with the same delivery price.

It will be 29+29+29 = 87. Plus just $19 for shipping of all 3 games in one package. That’s $106 total. You will significantly reduce the shipping price per one game.

If you decide to do that — follow these simple steps: - Сlick the button “Manage Your Pledge”. - Then click the button “Change Your Pledge” and increase your pledge by the amount of games, you want to buy. Max – up to 3 games per one pledge. That’s mean 29*3 = 87+19 = $106 for 3 copies + shipping.

Why not use plastic miniatures for armies instead of tokens?

If God wills, we will make a special edition with miniatures based on medieval chess pieces. We love them too. But for now we will stay with the charm of handwritten miniatures on a yellowed parchment.

Did you take those miniatures from an illuminated manuscript, or do you draw them yourselves?

Our artist, Alex, draws them by hand. But absolutely, the primary inspiration source for the art style is the Grandes Chroniques de France, with its incredible hand-drawn miniatures and geometric ornaments.

Will Deus lo Vult be available in languages other than English? Is it language-independent?

The game rules will be in English, though we will offer rules translated into a variety of languages on our website. All other components of Deus lo Vult are language-independent.

How will worldwide shipping be handled?

Everything will be shipped to the USA from the factory and then shipped to your location from there. If there are enough backers from a particular location, then we will look at ways to get the games inside of the country first and then ship from there, but that is unlikely.

When do you get shipping information? Will I be able to update my address?

We will be asking for shipping information when we are close to delivering Deus lo Vult. If you move, you will be able to update your address, but we will wait on asking so as to reduce the potential need for such updates.

Do you have any add-ons or expansions?

We are working on a big expansion set right now, but it will be a separate product. We will share more info when we are ready.

Can you sign my game for me?

We’d love to sign your game, but only if we meet you in person. Because of our distribution system, having your game shipped to us to sign and then shipping it to you would add a significant cost that we can’t afford to incur.

What if I want to pledge to more than one reward level?

Kickstarter makes this a bit tricky. You’ll need to create a second Kickstarter account to pledge to multiple rewards or to the same limited reward more than once.

What is the age-appropriateness of Deus lo Vult?

We’ve marked the game as 14+ for two reasons: One, it’s the age that classifies Deus lo Vult as a game instead of a toy for EU importation. Two, the game is filled with illuminated medieval “cartoon violence.”

Last updated: August 09, 2018 04:38

Who are your distributing partners and manufacturers?

After the start of our Kickstarter campaign, we have already received many proposals. But we will choose partners that will help us to produce and deliver Deus lo Vult to our backers with all required quality.

Last updated: August 09, 2018 04:38

Is there anything else we should know?

We prefer to ship to addresses where someone can personally receive the game during the day, whether it’s at work, at home, a friend, or at a neighbor’s. The point of this is to prevent theft due to a package sitting on someone’s front porch all day.

Last updated: August 09, 2018 04:38

What are the box dimensions?

The dimensions are 296 х 296 х 67 mm.

How long does it take to play one round in the Deus lo Vult?

You can get the general idea of the game pace by watching one of our game stream videos, but we can tell you that one round (which is a plundering of 4 City Quarters) usually takes about 30-40 minutes. This duration is more or less the same for any number of players, for each player has 12 moves in 2p game, 8 in 3p game and 6 in 4p game.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

How do I update my email address in my backer account?

We will ask you to verify that you are the account holder; and to provide the new email address to which you would like to update your account. You can verify by your ownership of your backer account by either of the following methods:

* Sending us an email from the old email address, specifying the new email address for your backer account.

* Sending us a screenshot of your original pledge that shows your backer number on Kickstarter (or Indiegogo, etc).

How do I delete my backer account?

While signed in to your BackerKit account, click on “Need Help?” on the top right side of the page.

If you delete your account, you will still be able to access your surveys in the future -- no account needed.

What is a backer account?

A backer account helps backers (like you!) to keep their surveys organized. Oftentimes, people who support projects that use crowdfunding support multiple projects across crowdfunding platforms. Any project that uses BackerKit will appear in your BackerKit account, and will allow you to help keep track of updates such as address, items, timelines, support, etc.
