How do I pledge for multiple items, but not everything?

Choose the pledge level that best fits your wants, then you can add on funds to cover the remaining items that you want. Scroll to the Add on section to see how to add items to your pledge. Then in backerkit you will specify what the money is for specifically!

How do Add on's and Shipping work?

You can add money to your pledge for Add On’s, just follow the instructions in the add on section. Then you specify what that money is for in the Pledge Manager Backerkit after the Kickstarter ends. Shipping will be added in Backerkit based on your total order including your pledge and Add On’s. It will be charged when we collect money for the pledge manager.

If the Mutual Stretch Goal is unlocked, how do I get the other 2 expansions?

Once the mutual stretch goal is unlocked, these items will also become add on’s so you will be able to add on the additional expansions for there Kickstarter price of $15. Follow the instructions in the Add on’s section to see how to add funds to your pledge.

What do I get if the Mutual Stretch Goal is unlocked?

You get a free expansion #2 based on the base of your pledge level. So if you pledge for Nimitz core or Nimitz expansion your stretch goal unlocked is Nimitz #2. If you pledge for Tiger, your unlock is Tiger #2, etc.

The only pledge levesl that gets all 3 #2 expansions for free is the All 3 expansions and all in levels.

Do I need any of the Errata or Upgrade Kits if I am buying the core game in this Kickstarter?

No! The various errata and upgrade kits are for those who own the previous version of these core games. If you buy the core game in this kickstarter, you will get those updates in your game.

What is different in Thunderbolt Apache Leader?

Thunderbolt Apache Leader will not be changing, except for the 3 misprinted cards in the first print run, so we aren’t even calling it a 2nd edition.

Can I just pledge for my base pledge level and then add on items in Backerkit (pledge manager)?

Yes, you can just put money on Kickstarter for your base pledge then add more funds in Backerkit for any add on’s you want just like a website shopping cart. However, that money doesn’t apply to stretch goals and funding so it doesn’t help the Kickstarter.

What do I get in my core game pledge level?

You get just the core game you are pledging for, the expansions are NOT included with the existing pledge levels and to get them you need to bump up the pledge amount by $30 and then in Backerkit you will specify what the funds are for. If the stretch goal is unlocked, you will also get the expansion #2 for the core game you pledged for.

I already have Nimitz 1st edition - If I want the Nimitz Expansions do I need the Upgrade Kit?

We are still designing the Nimitz expansion, but as of now you do not need the upgrade kit to use the Nimitz expansion because it is just cards and the upgrade kit is just the new Movement chart for the Map so they shouldn’t affect each other.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

If you have created an account and have gone through the previous steps, but are still having trouble, please reach out to us via the contact form. Let us know any important details (browser type, mobile device or computer, OS, etc).

Do I need a BackerKit account to fill out/receive my survey?

You do not need a BackerKit account to access your surveys through BackerKit BackerKit accounts help to manage and keep track of surveys and are especially helpful for folks who have backed multiple projects.

Do I have an account?

Try account recovery here.

You may or may not have an account set up, but you can access the Account Request Confirmation from the bottom of the confirmation page of any of your surveys.

How do I update my email address in my backer account?

Contact BackerKit support by signing in to your BackerKit account, and then clicking on “Need Help?” in the top right side of the page! We will ask you to verify that you are the account holder; and to provide the new email address to which you would like to update your account. You can verify by your ownership of your backer account by either of the following methods:

* Sending us an email from the old email address, specifying the new email address for your backer account.

* Sending us a screenshot of your original pledge that shows your backer number on Kickstarter (or Indiegogo, etc).

How do I delete my backer account?

While signed in to your BackerKit account, click on “Need Help?” on the top right side of the page.

If you delete your account, you will still be able to access your surveys in the future -- no account needed.

What is a backer account?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

A backer account helps backers (like you!) to keep their surveys organized. Oftentimes, people who support projects that use crowdfunding support multiple projects across crowdfunding platforms. Any project that uses BackerKit will appear in your BackerKit account, and will allow you to help keep track of updates such as address, items, timelines, support, etc.
