FAQ: Munchkin Shakespeare
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Can I just back for $1 and get add-ons?

No. Add-ons are available only to backers at "Play-Goer" level or higher. While we appreciate the support, if you want to get something from the campaign you need to back at at least "Play-Goer."

Does doubling my pledge get me two copies of my pledge level?

No! This is a common misconception. For example, if you pledge at "I Want It All!" and double your pledge to $120, you don't get two of the game, expansion, and all the add-ons. You will get your $60 "I Want It All!" pledge, and then $60 you can use for additional add-ons. This goes for all reward levels.

Do I get the Munchkin Shakespeare Demo Pack and Munchkin Blank Card pack with my "I Want It All!" or "I Want It Signed!" Pledge?

Yes! You get those add-ons, including any we unlock, with those pledge levels.

Do I get Stretch Goals with my Play-Goer or Shakespearean Player pledge?

YES! Additional cards are being added to the game as a whole, and unless otherwise noted, will be included in the base game or expansion (depending on the stretch goal). The "I Want It All!" and "I Want It Signed!" Tiers include all Add-Ons unlocked via stretch goals as well.

What’s so special about a bookmark?

Munchkin bookmarks are some of our most popular promotional goodies, because when you put down a great book to go play Munchkin, you need something to mark your place.

Oh, and did we mention that every Munchkin bookmark has its own special rule? The bookmarks in this project are no exception.

How do add-ons work?

During the campaign, you can add the amount for whatever add-on you want to your pledge ($20 for a second copy of the game, for example). At the end of the campaign, you will get a BackerKit survey. There you can select which add-ons you want and pledged for. All money pledged during this Kickstarter will count toward the stretch goals. The more you pledge, the bigger and better your games become!

If you prefer, you can also order add-ons using BackerKit after the project closes, but doing so doesn’t move us closer to our stretch goals.

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://munchkin-shakespeare.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.
