Sherm - Things are very tight time-wise, but I hope to launch by 7pm EST on May 1st (tomorrow). It's taken 8 years to develop this technology & manufacturing process for playing cards....so if it happens to slip over into 2nd May I will not be too worried (but will let you know here on this forum of course). Regards.

Hey, VXD... is this still happening today at 7pm Easter Time? Or tomorrow? Or some other time?

And... how limited will the run be (if it be limited at all)? Will there be Early Birds?

Thanks!

Hi Rousselle

Just had chance to log in. Still flat out with preps and KS building. I now plan to launch at 23.59 EST.

I appreciate most will be in bed then, but I want to launch on May 1st and that's obviously the lastest possible time I can manage and still do that.

Regards

Rousselle - Sorry just noticed I missed part of your question. There are no early birds as such, but there are limited editions. I'm guessing you'll be fine to get anything you like though, as enquiries so far into the deck have not exactly been overwhelming on here.

With a deck like this (new, innovative, etc.) I HIGHLY recommend not rushing it! I see you've changed the date a few times and I urge you not to launch this until it's ready. This deck looks wicked awesome so I'm sure it won't have trouble funding (price pending) UNLESS it's rushed and a detail or two is missed and something unforeseen happens (which, don't kid yourself, is common and almost expected nowadays with KS projects). Either way, whenever it launches I will be there.

Thanks Vasta and yes you are right about that.

Btw - A friend of mine just mentioned that I should let people know when showing the promo video that there is ZERO cgi or digital touching up etc in that video, as he said he assumed there was.

That video is only camera and lights on a table, zero trickery (excluding the obvious logo animation of course).

That was an incredible video showing the color change and great courts. I'm in when you're ready.
Move on, nothing to see here.

Thanks Rich

One other thing definitely worth pointing out - they handle really really well. Slip is spot on....they glide really nicely over each other and it's been one of my biggest concerns from conception, as I knew heavy gold foils etc negatively affect handling in all cases, to a lesser or greater degree.

I'll definitely have a cardist to emphasise this for VXD as well on the next promo vid. But people on here will know anyway, once they get them in their hands.

Who is printing these? I'm assuming this is a new printing company? Or at least one we haven't heard of?

Vasta

Lots of questions re the printing, shipping, quality were addressed in the other thread =====VERTEX DECK===== , which I'll bump up now next this, in case anyone else has more queries on these topics for VXD playing cards.

Can there please, oh pretty please be a standard tuck offered with this deck? FYI historically decks with weird tucks don't do well on KS. I beg of you, provide a standard tuck option!

This deck looks awesome. I agree with the other collectors that want a standard tuck box for display. I was looking at the other thread for this deck and It said that there would be a standard tuck inside the unique aluminum case. That would be nice. More expensive than an option with a standard tuck alone but if it can't be done with a standard tuck alone, then I'll get the deck with the Aluminum case with the standard tuck inside.

Any updates on the kickstarter launch? Will it be today?

I think there seems to be an consensus that there isn't too much of an appetite for the aluminum tuck box and most people would prefer a traditional tuck box. I don't think you ever mentioned what the price of this deck will be, which makes me suspect that it's going to be pretty high, so the aluminum tuck would just add on to that already high price. Now if that aluminum box could house and protect a standard tuck box so that it's more of a fancy storage box for the deck instead, then I can see it making sense as a special limited edition deck. Lot's of campaigns have had great success offering the option of a limited and fancy storage box to house the deck (think Jackson Robinson's Legacy Editions or Uusi's reclaimed old growth redwood boxes). But if that aluminum case is the tuck box, then I fear your sales won't be as robust as if you had a traditional paper tuck box.

Totally agree with @sinjin7 above.

@Creator - I will advise you to get the option of standard tuckbox from day 1 itself. First few days are, indeed, important and I've seen that it is better to offer from first day rather than doing a course correction later in the campaign. It is a fruit of intense labor, so please do listen to what people are saying here on UC. Secondly, do give options of standard, limited or ultra limited editions, if possible. I never tried this but it seems to work if we look at a number of successful projects. Third, cost per deck as well as shipping is always an important factor for backers, and you'd need to have a strong value proposition for potential backers who will either fall in collectors or cardists category.

Good luck.

Thanks for the messages / advice.

I have just landed in LV - after very long flights, where I am meeting the co-creator for a small promotion of the deck and psychological marking of the launch here in its place of conception. We also have a meeting set up with a very influential table games creator here in LV, to talk over the promotion / advertising potential of this deck (custom artwork / logos within the pips), for use on 3-card poker tables, which is extremely exciting :D

We hope to make the final KS adjustments tomorrow and therefore launch by tomorrow evening. But I will let people know as nothing is currently 100% certain on launch time / date yet.

I'll seek to answer all questions when I get a minute after the actual launch has happened.

Regards
