The project page doesnt show up under "playing cards" section of kickstarter, or any other section other than "all games" could lead to issues with non forum members coming across it.

I got a half brick of the original so maybe with this one I might too to boost funding toward the third Metalluxe deck. If it's unlocked would it be an add-on or in a tier?

Mixed half brick for me! May even go higher, lets see how finances will do until the end of the project!
I'm cutting down on the majority of KS projects, but not on this one!

59% funded, can't understand how this is not yet funded, so lets get the word going... Towards MetaLuxe!! :D

They appear to have fixed it now though it is under playing cards. But the first day it was not so people who sort by "newest" may well have missed it.

I'm a little surprised that this project isn't getting more love.

Although, it *has* already funded over $23,000. Is it possible that combining the two different decks is making the goal too high?

That said, I love the added spiffs being offered to big backers. Now... how do we improve the chances of this one to fund?

My mind is boggled that this hasn't funded yet as well. Maybe Rick needs to promote this more aggressively. As far as I can tell, he's just been sending out Updates but hasn't been doing any cross-promotions with other decks on KS. I think he should hit up Kardify and Max Playing Cards for additional promotion as well. If he's able to get that limited edition deck out, I'm sure that will boost pledges as well.

This one launched the same day as Arthurian...
Arthurian has a a lot of criticism but it's still going strong up to 60k USD.
Origins with lots of positive feedback has problems to fund with 35k NZD (~24k USD) ???

I don't get it ! Image

I think one of the problems is sticker shock with the NZ dollar, especially with the add-ons. Projects that don't start in USD add an extra layer of difficulty.

It's hard to compare Jackson Robinson's reach, as he sends out an email blast to all previous backers and BOOM...funded.

This one better fund man, I'm looking forward to this more than most Kickstarters in the last few months.

I hope the limited editions help push it close to or over the goal.

I don't know if Rick is super busy tweaking the deck but I asked about adding on a Rouen booklet since I pledged for a pair and don't get the book for free. He said he'd add it to the add-on list but it's not on there 3 days later. Not good if you want people to pledge you more money.

Cross promoting should be done too. I don't know if he did this with his other decks but it can't hurt. I want this to fund.

Hey guys :) Sorry I've been quiet here, it has been a super busy couple of weeks. Yes it's a tough grind, but totally what I expected. A lot of great decks to compete with and I had the same with the first campaign. There is a little confusion with the currency and the Rouen deck is something a little different. Sticking with the USPCC makes everything tighter on budget, but working hard on finalising the custom Black Label deck which I'm hoping to launch in the next couple of days.

I have been working hard on promoting the campaign in different places, and have some cross promoting lined up. You can always do more. Rich, sorry for the delay, will have that booklet up tonight, the Black Label has been time consuming.

Thanks for the support in the campaign, you guys rock.

Rick, at this point it's super important to get the new items out there and available so you can pump up the numbers. Time is not your friend here, the sooner the better as far as that goes. With Ukraine ten days left, you need a shot in the arm...
