Stretch Goals Speculation 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
What do you think might be the possible stretch goals?

I think I found out what one of the bonus pieces will be, a newly designed piece to generate passages appropriate to Game Tiles without the need to generate a "Game Tiles Room & Passage Set". Brilliant!

I was thinking DF might raise $250,000-$300,000, but I'm glad to report that goal might be really low now! As for stretch goals I think it could be more of the items?

I hope you are right Biowizard, but I was under the same impression Monkplayer was - that stretch goals would add more of the same pieces to each pledge level, thus reducing the cost per piece. Again, hope I am wrong and honestly, if I am right, I think it is a mistake. People like NEW stuff to be revealed and included when stretch goals are met!

Well with walls at $75k and floors at $100k, I think it is safe to speculate corners and doors are next. However, I think Bio may be right, just early. Having really cool individual pieces as a pledge add on stretch goal definitely pushed Reaper Bones pledge levels. I think DF will use any unique individual pieces to do the same. We cannot complain if they do, we will already have gotten what amounts to free sets from the prior stretch goals.

Good spot!
Looking closely again & again - I am not sure that what you see there will accomplish what you hope for as easily as you suggest.
They require angled / tapered edges. The corner room piece has no such angle / tapered.
I suspect this is a part of a future 'corridor' system. One that removes the need for 'T-sections' and 'X-roads' but uses just tapered walls & corners as shown... But without sitting down & drawing, not sure how many different pieces this would need / save...

Any chance stretch goals can include basic pieces from the cavern and catacombs sets?

Re:Stretch Goals Speculation 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
You guys caught me...those are indeed a new type of more modular passage system...it is made up of smaller pieces which saves a Ton on those expensive metal molds....but i am not sure we can include those as stretch goals, simply because we may lose a ton of money...we are trying to generate more customers and maybe make more money as well, so losing money is not a good thing...but of course, we must weigh the popularity in as that will obviously also generate more collectors and more money...it's a tough call...we are actually crunching numbers and evaluating what we can do....but at the least I can promise that these pieces and other will be made available at some point, maybe even within a month or two of when folks will be getting their Game Tiles!
These new modular passages are awesome!

I knew it!!! ;-)

p.s. Stefan, always aim long-term in your business decisions! It will make all the beautiful Sets we have in mind come true. I applaud your Game Tiles initiative.

I'm hoping to see a piece added that isn't already in the set listed on the Kickstarter.

Re:Stretch Goals Speculation 1 Year, 5 Months ago  
On to some more speculation...

In one Game Tiles Set, there are:
14x Straight Wall
12x Floor
6x Corner Wall
2x Swinging Door

It was hinted by Jeff and Thod in the kickstarter comment section that if most if not all stretch goals are met, it will actually double the actual number of pieces you get per Set if you buy 2 Sets or more:

28x Straight Wall
24x Floor
12x Corner Wall
4x Swinging Door

The revealed Stretched Goals are:
75K +4 Straight Wall
100K +3 Floor
150K +2 Corner Wall
200K +4 Straight Wall
250K +1 Swinging Door

Here's my speculative call (including some exponential increase between new steps)

300K +3 Floor
350K +2 Corner Wall
400K +3 Straight Wall
450K +3 Floor
500K +1 Swinging Door (for a total of 4)
600K +2 Corner Wall (for a total of 12)
700K +3 Floor (for a total of 24)
800K +3 Straight Wall (for a total of 28)

Welcome to the DF forum kevinrau! I hope you will like what you find in this forum, especially the "cool photos of DF sets" section.

I also hope that new pieces will be added. For now, there is already the "product" section of this website ;-)...

First let me say - I don't know myself what the stretch goals are. AND - there always can be changes. But your suggestions look pretty believable.

2Stefan

I did send this suggestion already to Jeff - but you are the man to make it happen. I know quite a few people on this boards here are glamoring to get there hands on a pdf of some of your maps.

This could be a great add on / further strech goals. You could even put these half-way in between existing ones.

Building on Biowizards list this could add:

275K - one pdf of a map hand drawn by Stefan

325K - a second pdf of another map

etc.

I think the store allows storage of pdfs. They don't cost shipping. Possibly bandwidth? But this would add something extra for a minimal cost.

Just my suggestion

2all the fans - now it's up to you to bully Stefan to make it happen. I did my part
