Pricing Information needed for Caverns KS Add-ons! 8 Months, 1 Week ago  
On the last KS, Add-on packs had consistent price, but so far the packs for the Caverns KS prices have varied.

I've seen a fair few questions about what the price is for various Add-ons that are announced but not unlocked yet.

This was a big hurdle for me as well, so I suspect a lack of pricing information is making people less inclined to "preorder" by pledging for Add-on packs that they hope to unlock but which aren't unlocked yet.

More generally, the inconsistent pricing is making it hard for me to budget overall.

Technically, the addons you're talking about aren't even "announced" yet. They're previewed and hinted at, but we don't know how many of what pieces are in them, nor when they'll be unlocked. In cases like the rivers and passages, I suspect Jeff and Stefan don't yet know those things either, which makes it hard to set a price.

I'm sure that when the addons are formally revealed, they will have prices. And I'm sure that they will be revealed as soon as their exact composition is nailed down (or at least very soon after that).

That said, I share your curiosity. I want to know how much I should increase my pledge! :P

The hard one is on things like Passages.

But more generally, I think it would help people commit to adding more money if Add-ons did have a consistent price, or fell into a couple of consistent prices.

So consider this a comment in favor of that. "Well, I dunno what the price might be, so no sense speculatively pledging more money..." is just another way for our fundraising to slow down!

Look on the bright side. This way, the boost of pledges when an addon is announced will be that much bigger.

I sure hope many of us have not pre-pledged for a bunch of add-ons that are not even unlocked. If too many of us have pre-pledged for the next add-on that has not even been shown then we will not get to the next add-on unlocking amount.

This is exactly why i haven't pledged anything yet. The add-ons listed aren't what i'm wanting, and i'm not going to pledge until things are closer to the end so i can decided on how many sets i'm buying based on how many add-ons i'm getting and the prices not being consistent doesn't help.

I've got about $400 overpledged just for add ons; I don't know what they will go for yet. Don't know if I can go higher. But we'll see what Jeff and Stefan make me do!

I have pledged for 10 sets, plus 6 sets for friends and 9 addons thus far. I will have to ad $ if the $/addon is higher than my estimate and/or the addons call out and demand more than 2 sets of each.

I wuld not be surprised if, at the end of the KS, the addon budget doubles when my friends include their requirements. especially if there is an opportunity to increase addons in the final purchase fundafill process.

THAT was a very dangerous step for my wallet. Last time I increased my order by 5 sets and 5 addons.

I fear the water tiles. They call out to me to obey and buy 2, no 4, no better make that 6!
