Adventurer, Premium, Deluxe and Collectors - What's the difference?

A few people have been asking about the different tiers and for more information on the Kickstarter packs and dexterity micro expansion.

I have created a full breakdown of the items in each tier here:

Will there be a pledge manager? | Can I pledge £1 for access?

Yes! We will be using a pledge manager when the campaign ends.

Anyone who backs at the £1 tier or higher will have access to the pledge manager and will be able to upgrade their reward to a higher tier.

Are there any Kickstarter exclusives?

There are 2 Kickstarter packs which are included with the Premium, Deluxe and Collector Editions of the game.

These packs will only be available in a limited form at an increased price after the campaign ends, so whilst not exclusive, if you would like them it is certainly advisable to get them during the campaign.

How does the game scale from 1 - 4 players

The City of Kings contains 3 sets of creature stats

1 for 1 & 2 players 1 for 3 players 1 for 4 players

So as more players join the game, the creatures increase in difficulty to match, providing the same core experience regardless of the number of players.

Will everything fit in the box?

Yes! The box has been designed to hold everything, it's 280 x 380 x 82mm. The only thing that doesn't fit inside is the art book. Sleeved cards will fit just fine.

Card sizes

Please note. The quantities are only estimates until the campaign ends due to stretch goals.

44m x 67mm = 28 70mm x 120mm = 53 63mm x 88mm = 152* 70mm x 70mm = 28

*if you purchase the Kickstarter armour set, this will add 4 additional cards (63mm x 88mm). *if you purchase the Deluxe edition, this will add 9 additional cards (63mm x 88mm).

Multi-language support

I'm sorry, but The City of Kings will only be printed in English for this print run.

The City of Kings is a story driven game with a lot of narrative throughout.

Due to this we had to make the decision to only have an English version for our first release, as multi-language support would require printing multiple copies of a lot of the components.

We certainly hope to look into prints in other languages in the future, but can't guarantee when or if this will happen.

Shipping Updates No shipping updates are provided.
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.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

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.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://the-city-of-kings.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

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.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

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.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
