FAQ: Reissue of Deep Space D-6 and new Mini-Expansion.
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Where are the stretch goals?

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to fund a reprinting of Deep Space D-6. The original Kickstarter saw a large number of stretch goals already unlocked. As a result, there are no plans for any additional stretch goals.

Can I just get a revised rulebook? Or can you include a revised rulebook with an expansion?

I am currently considering offering stickers for people to place in the rulebook to cover the changes and add the clarifications. A digital rulebook will be released upon completion.

The expansion is just a new deck of cards. There's no easy way to fit a new rulebook in with the expansion given the size and shape of both items.

Why is the price higher than the first printing?

Unfortunately, the price of paper has gone up globally since the first printing. Also the original $15 price point (based on the cost of an old rpg game from 1970, pre-inflation $2) was just unrealistic.

How do I add items like additional copies to my pledge?

If you would like to add an extra expansion or base game, simply increase your pledge by the amount shown on the pledge item you want. You do not need to add the shipping cost again. Additional items have a limit of 2. If you want more, please contact me for special rates.

Will this game be available at retail?

Small publishers like myself have a difficult time getting into stores. The first print run was available at retail globally but it is ultimately up to the individual stores to determine if they want to carry it.

Because I print close to only what I need for fulfillment, I highly recommend obtaining a copy through this Kickstarter.

If I sleeve the game cards, will it fit back into the box?

That depends on the sleeves. You can fit the base game contents into the box with sleeves if you split the deck up. If you add the expansion, it becomes a tighter fit, but it is possible.

Will a campaign/pledge manager be available after the Kickstarter?

Campaign and pledge managers are 3rd party services and not native to the Kickstarter platform. They are ideal for projects with numerous add-ons and getting more backers after the campaign has concluded. At this moment, there will be no post-campaign manager of any type.

Is there a pledge option for retailers?

Please contact me for retail pledge options. We offer a discount to retailers for 6, 9, or 12 copies. You will need to provide proof that you are a retailer with a brick & mortar location.

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://deep-space-d-6.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.
