Lots of good points there, Bradius!

Also, I wanted to let you all know that there are 20 spots open in the $30 LE+SE tier right now. I shifted some decks from the $140 tier since nobody backed it.

I pledged for the $30 tier! From now on I'll try to be on track with the rest.

In reading the Standard Mercury decks on sale at your website, I see the run for the standard decks was 5,000. I had thought they would be 2,000. In going back and reading the campaign, I see it was listed as 2,000+. I guess I missed the plus’s sign. However 5,000 is a lot more than 2,000. I am a bit bummed by that, even if you are selling the surplus decks at $20 each.

Dammit. Wish I would've seen this comment sooner to snatch one of those spots.

As the campaign comes to a close, there will be a few that drop off. You just have to watch and be fast. I do that far too much...

Yeah I jumped on the SE+LE bundle within a few minutes, by the time I'd finished pledging they were all but gone.

Someone really needs to design a bot to notify you if a specific sold out Kickstarter campaign tier opens up, and better yet will automatically sign you up for it (or at least message you that it is open).

I got annoyed that there wasn't a link to the campaign anywhere on this thread so here.

About this deck and this series: I really liked the Mercury design, but this looks even better IMO, honestly among the best designed decks that have come out recently. And as for the series, I freaking love the idea, the ambition and going the extra mile to have every deck a different design. Deck series that have "that common thing" that makes it work as a set but every deck being different are really enjoyable.

I dream of a world where wars are fought only by having dance offs. I also dream that a Finnish playing card designer would exist. The former seems more likely to happend.

@Bradius: I initially put "2000+" for the SE quantity because I knew that would be the minimum amount required for the USPC order. Due to the popularity of the project, I've opted to print additional SE decks. Sorry if that was confusing or misleading in any way...but the point being that the Limited Edition is very much limited while the standard edition will be available for everyone to enjoy.

Also, I think it would be amazing if Kickstarter would implement a waiting list functionality so that you could get in line for a tier in the event that someone drops their pledge and maybe once you reach the top of the list and a spot opens you're given a certain timeframe to accept that spot (30 minutes or an hour or whatever).

@Räpylätassu: Thanks for the kind words! Also, I tried to drop the Kickstarter widget into the initial post but it doesn't seem to work...just displays the code string. How do you get it to work in a post on this forum?

Thanks!
