The Gambler's Chest Expansion is scheduled to arrive at our fulfillment centers, starting the end of this month and will start shipping out to backers in AUGUST (barring rail-yard / customs delays)!!!!
We will follow up with backers that have failed payments in the following weeks.
The GCE is Huge.
Due to the staggering size and weight of the completed Gambler's Chest Expansion, we are adjusting the shipping rates from their original estimates.
I apologize and sincerely thank you in advance for your understanding.
GCE Shipping Costs in Backerkit.
In your backerkit account you will see an order total that reflects the final cost of the GCE shipping. This is the amount you will need to pay for GCE shipping.
Base Shipping Rates for GCE
USA - $39
EU - $29*
UK - $29*
Canada - $60
Australia - $55
New Zealand - $70
Europe (non taxable) - $67
Asia - $73
ROW - $120
*This rate does not include VAT. Your final shipping charge does.
For EU/UK regions wherein VAT is required, the VAT has been calculated based on the amount you paid for the GCE and added to your total shipping fee. You will not see a separate line item for tax. If you need an invoice, we are handling these on a case by case basis, so please reach out to us at support.
Gambler’s Chest Expansions that were added to backer's rewards as a preorder or add-on included a shipping fee based on their region. This is now being applied as a credit towards the true, final shipping cost of this item.
A lot has changed since the Gambler's Chest went from being a bonus box to the largest Kingdom Death expansion to date (LARGER THAN THE CORE GAME). A truly tremendous amount of talent, effort, and work has gone into creating what we feel, is the successor to our core game and sets the stage for all the new content to come.
GCE Previously Collected Shipping Fees
We cannot accommodate shipping the GCE with only the previously collected shipping fee. The world has shifted and we must account for it. Shipping fees that were paid are now a credit towards the final shipping price of the GCE.
I take full ownership of my choice to greatly extend the timeline and scope of the Gamblers Chest Expansion several times. It has grown far, far beyond its initial pitch.
I wanted to get it “right” and take the opportunity to fully realize the ambition of the GCE regardless of sanity, resources spent, and time. I am sorry that it led to higher shipping label costs. Creating the best thing we could muster reflects the true spirit of kickstarter, crowdfunding, and was the best way to show my appreciation for having this unique opportunity to do something I love, making Kingdom Death content!
If you have a Blackest Bundle, you have paid a shipping fee, consider this a shipping credit. The GCE shipping price will be subtracted from this credit and the remainder will be applied to future rewards (this is not currently reflected in backerkit but will be noted internally). If you have a 2017 Blackest Bundle, you have received Expansion of Death Vol 1 and are preparing to receive the GCE. These rewards are included in your shipping fee. Future rewards will incur additional shipping costs.
If you have already paid VAT through backerkit on your GCE your shipping price reflects this.
a warm, awful feeling says it best
@a warm, awful feeling, Thank you so much! Here at the studio we have adored the videos you have made! Their enthusiasm and thoughtful content has made our hard work feel appreciated and we appreciate it.
Not Even the Full Cost
Despite the increase in shipping rates from what we estimated in 2016, we are working very hard to bring everyone the lowest possible rates and are absorbing costs wherever we can. The burden of the full cost of shipping is not entirely on you, the backers, bakcers, and fans.
As a small gesture, there are two surprises in the final package that we have mentioned before, one in the form of a miniature and the other in the form of a box that will help your settlements.
I'd like to share our recent webstore releases and community spotlight! If you are not subscribed to our mailing list and would like KD updates (beyond the kickstarter), you can sign up here. Thanks!
We can’t wait to see you at Gencon! It’ll be our first trade show since 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited to meet you there. Friendly reminder that community members who happen to don Kingdom Death cosplay are very likely to be featured and tagged in the community spotlight.
This month we’re showcasing a fiery fist, a sword savant, our favorite lagomorph, and an abundant celebration.
Out of the ashes of a settlement consumed by a fuming foe a crab spider became a fiddler crab. That fiddler crab inspired a survivor to encase their swinging fist in armor. Gustavo Munoz’ Monk has a fist of of furious flames, the paint is a perfect reflection of Lokman Lam’s original art. Eyes detailed with determination, this monk locks in on its target as it readies a haymaker.
Willow is the most skilled swordmaster in generations of lantern years, the Hand (both canon and mandible) has taken a keen interest in this testing the talent of this prospect. Zel_lab’s paint is as refined as Willow’s lantern sword with its flawless lighting effects on her metal breastplate and boots.
Got Any Eggs?
Lagomorph survivors are hasty survivors that steal and gobble up eggs. Lolowen is a particularly impatient survivor with a penchant for raw eggs. U/Leviathan’s gamer scale Lolowen leaning on her studded kanabo making subtle eye contact while playing with her longer left ear. Tight lines and elegant colors on this paint make her a treat to look back at.
Fishing Under Fireworks
PHDAdd’s Twilight Knight is here to celebrate the first new moon of the year. Framed by a beautiful night sky littered by celebratory fireworks, the Twilight Knight is dressed in a traditional festival red dress with elegant floral art woven into the fabric. She wades in a splashing pool hoping to catch a tasty fish of abundance.
