Small update:

Added uncut sheets and dealer chips to the stretch goals list. The project is now at the 30% funded mark, and we have almost unlocked the uncut sheets. Even though we are at this point in funding, I could still use your help getting this deck a bit further in terms of backers. If you, or anyone you know might be interested in this deck, please send them my way. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sorry, not sorry, but these are just hideous. There is way too much going on in the "artwork".

You do know the definition of insanity, right?

If this hasn't succeeded through 3 previous campaigns, why do you continue to relaunch?

Yet, this statement is an understatement. The smudgy courts even repeat.

The most unbelievable fact is that there is one backer for a brick and four for half a brick. :shock: :?

Welp, she apparently has taken the money and run. I admittedly made a stupid agreement to back her project in exchange for supporting mine and naturally my payment went through and hers was declined. I had some correspondence with her on FB about 6 weeks ago where she insisted she was dealing with some issues but would refund my money within a week and then she disappeared completely after that. I've done some internet sleuthing to track down any info I can on her but haven't made too much progress so if anyone else has any useful information about how to find Mady/Madline/Madeline Watkins from Toronto, Ontario, please let me know.

Also, I can see that she is active on FB even as recently as 4 days ago:

What project did her pledge fall through for? Depending on the project and what she pledged I might be able to fill that gap.

Nothing terribly exciting...it was for the Mercury project for a brick of SE decks...no LE decks.

Woof. I've yet to buy a brick of anything, even though I love these.

I skipped them initially to remove the obsessive need to follow it all the way through the series.

Hmm, well, I was in for two. Ah well, I guess. It will not be the first or last time I get taken on Kickstarter.

Normally I would sympathize with others getting duped, but honestly, she's doing you a favor by not delivering that garbage to your mailbox/front door...

I really don’t care about the decks...I just want the $155 she pledged for the Mercury project...or a refund.

David, I wouldn't worry too much about the Mercury pledge she stiffed you. You will have no problem selling your unsold decks aftermarket.

I can't wait for my two sets when the series is finished.

David - I'm sorry to hear that it happened with you. Hope you take it as a lesson learned. Having said that, I'm not sure what you can do if a backer's pledge fall through as Kickstarter simply gets them in dropped backers list after a week. Understand you must have followed up and even reminded her but as Kickstarter is not a store, there is not much you'll be able to do in getting the $ pledged for Mercury.

On a completely different note, I can make parallels between Bicycle Imperium & MP Ultraviolet though artwise, the former was a class act. New creators, gaining support through "Printed by USPCC" tagline (Imperium got a bump when GW pitched in the forum here saying all good with the creator), low funding goal, no or rare updates post Kickstarter funding etc.
