    There are a lot of people who have custom tiles (purchased from Etsy and elsewhere) but there isn't an option to just buy the big box just on its own. You think Stronghold Games could have included that option.

    I see the RRP of the retail version is 50% more expensive. I suppose that makes the KS much more attractive but at the same time that retail price is heinous.

    I really hoped this Covid mess would start easing up after July...but it seems chances are rather slim. I've got one KS game coming in October and if Aramex is going to be delayed both locally and in NY...then eish

    As I heard Solarpop is next expecting a shipment in August.

    Speaking of Aramex...https://mybroadband.co.za/news/busin...-outbreak.html

    The Pledge Manager for Ankh: Gods of Egypt by CMON opened last night/this morning. We are 3 people that'd pledged and we are looking to ship together in order to bring the shipping costs down.

    Are you aware of anyone that might be interested in pulling together on this? What shipping company would you recommend (preferably someone you've shipped with in the past)? Is anyone interested in any of the additional stuff that'll be hard to find once the game hits retail (playmat etc)?

    I've seen that a few KS's now just don't ship to Africa at all. And those that do charge a fortune and then it goes via the post office (EEEEK!).

    I usually ship to Aramex Global shopper address in New York and then they ship it to me - hand delivered. You pay per weight so if the box is huge and heavy it can klap you a fair bit, but the shipping is fast and reliable.

    With AGS, a 3 KG parcel will set you back over R1000 in shipping, that's the price of a big box game right there. I shudder to think how much the Ankh box will weigh in the end.

    Really puts a damper on things. There have been quite a few KS projects I would have liked to back, but the shipping just kills it for me.

    I presume this is going to be the end (beginning?) of the trilogy.
