ICONS Imperial Demo edition noon Friday - S O L D . O U T !!

Unread postby Mike Ratledge » Tue Nov 17, 2015 12:27 pm  

Second (non-discounted, not member-only) sale Friday at 12:01PM
See below - this will be $5 more per deck than the member / backer sale yesterday



OK, my earlier posts were confused. Until Friday, these are only available if you were a backer of the ICONS Imperial Byzantine luxury playing cards on Kickstarter.

Starting on Friday they will be available to everyone.

Even if the page is showing, there will be no inventory until noon Wednesday. Please don't try to jump the line, I will refund any purchased before 12:01

Understand that I have to load a total of 100 into the 1, 2, 4 & 6 units to make them available. It necessary I can move them around. There will only be five each of the 4 & 6 units available to insure everyone has a shot at them. If you get sent back to the page without going to PayPal, that means that quantity is sold out.

TO BE FAIR, ONLY. ONE SALE PER BACKER WILL BE ACCEPTED! PLEASE DON'T MIKE EXTRA WORK FOR ME, YOU WILL GET YOUR MONEY BACK!

It's in my signature - same as for the Carat Card Cases, or use the "Offers" link near the top left of every page. It might she was up early, but it will be Sold Out until I add the inventory at noon tomorrow.

Same as this short link : ucoffers.php

Also at the top of the page you'll see a link along with the calendar and chatroom.

The ICONS Demo Edition entries are now available on the offers page - but the order buttons will not be enabled until tomorrow at 12.01 EST as advertised.

Thanks, Joe! Even though they show up, inventory is zero until I load it at precisely noon tomorrow. Even if you try, it will tell you that it is Sold Out until then.

I will monitor inventory once the sale goes live, and move them around if necessary. Again, no more than five 4- & 6-packs so everyone has a shot at least for one. "Membership has its benefits!"

Glad I could hook y'all up with these at a discount. This version is the display decks for practical purposes, and on top of everything, just under 300 total available everywhere.

Hi Mike,

I am one of the backers for the ICONS playing cards. LEAVING THE PAGE OPEN TILL THE LINK IS READY! :D

The form requires your Kickstarter username, and captures your UC member name as well.

If it doesn't match Lotrek's records, you get your money back.

Once the form becomes visible tomorrow right after noon, it will look about like this:

Last Minute Updates

SOLD OUT AT 1:15PM

The form will become available at 12:01PM EST / NYC time. You may have to refresh the page and/or clear your browser cache to see it (usually <Shift-F5>

Only one order per person / member name. Don't forget to put your Kickstarter name in the blank, or it will not let you proceed to PayPal (pop up will tell you that the KS name is missing)

Since only one order is accepted per user, be sure to select 1, 2, 4 or 6 decks using the drop down list first!


ORDER HERE: >> ucoffers.php <<

Scroll down between Carat Card Cases™ & t-shirts


Someone just told me that you have to be logged in to see it. The discount IS a member benefit.

I added three more pairs. Everything but 10 singles and 3 pairs were gone in 20 minutes.

As of 12:45PM, there are two pairs and four singles left.

The 100 I had went in 75 minutes, but Lotrek has 199 more. If you were a backer you can still get the discount but you have to ask him directly.

Re: ICONS Imperial Demo edition noon Friday - 150 more decks

Unread postby Mike Ratledge » Thu Nov 19, 2015 2:59 pm  

Since we sold out so quickly, I will be selling another 150 decks tomorrow to anyone - member, backer or not. The price will be $5 more per deck ($40 for a single, $220 for a half brick - includes shipping), available in 1, 2, 4 and 6-deck quantities.

It will work basically exactly the same, except you don't have to be logged in, you don't need a KS backer name (actually, any member who ordered yesterday WILL be fulfilled starting on 5-December - along with any Trial edition decks that were already ordered, whether or not they backed the ICONS Byzantine luxury edition playing cards project on Kickstarter).

Same as before - one sale per buyer, you can NOT buy more if you already bought at a discount, and yes - I saw the two double orders yesterday, but decided to let them ride, since both were for single decks).

It will work the same way, only four 4- and 6-decks available to try to avoid people reselling these and also allow as many people as possible the ability to get one or two decks, with the vast majority of the inventory in the single and dual deck levels. If I need to, I can adjust the inventory "on the fly".

I've got to be in town in the morning, so the decks are already in inventory and available now.

Lower serial numbers go to earlier buyers, and these are roughly #105 to 255.

I'm not sure if this means that I can purchase one right now, but I sent in an order just in case.
Sorry if i misunderstood but considering the pre-public decks sold out yesterday, I didn't want to miss out! :shock:

Same here--interpreting this to mean that orders are open, I placed one. Actually, I accidentally placed two, clicking on something I shouldn't have when I was supposed to be waiting for the page to refresh. Can someone cancel the second order?

Apologies if I've done anything wrong here.

Already down to about 80 left.

The last three sold virtually all at once, and we are sold out!

The code is still there until Joe marks it Sold Out tomorrow, but it will just show you there is no more inventory.


Thank you, everyone! Look for these, along with the Trial Edition to ship starting on the 5th.
