    If I got the $80 reward, I didn't have to add $6 to get the Sticky Shticks expansion, right? I feel like the answer is obviously yes,* but just double-checking.

    *As in yes I didn't have to. But if I did somehow screw up and don't get it, he said there'll probably be a limited amount on Ookoodook, right?

    Just received and filled out my survey - took some calculating to answer the questions, but I got it all down. Can't wait for this stuff to start shipping, though I'm sure it'll be a while yet.

    I gots a $80 as well. No you don't have to add the $6 to the total it because it's part of the package.

    PLEDGE $80 OR MORE
    250 BACKERS SOLD OUT (0 of 250 remaining)
    JUST THE GAME: One copy of the OOTS Adventure Game Deluxe Edition (which includes the original game and The Shortening expansion), plus the new Sticky Shticks mini-expansion and a Roy Greenhilt magnet. Add one "skinny" book (On the Origin of PCs, Start of Darkness, or Snips, Snails, and Dragon Tales) for $20 or the 8x10 art print for $15; no other additions or substitutions, please. (Canada/Mexico orders, please add $22 extra to your pledge to cover shipping for any number of copies; international orders, add $37.)

    *As in yes I didn't have to. But if I did somehow screw up and don't get it, he said there'll probably be a limited amount on Ookoodook, right?
    From what I understand, yes there will be extras. Don't have the time to dredge the quote up though....

    From Update #29:
    If you're desperate for the swag, we will be putting whatever we have leftover once we fulfill all the orders up on Ookoodook, so keep an eye out for any leftover stickers, notepads, and coloring books over the summer.

    The $65 pledge is a signed pledge. None of the signed pledges have had a survey sent out yet.

    I made a mistake on the $114 "PIck Three plus The Shortening" survey where I asked if backers added $6 for Sticky Shticks. That's unnecessary; Sticky Shticks is included in all game packages, including that one. Everyone at that level will be getting it for free and does not need to have added $6 for it.
    (I was worried too)

    I have a $10 pledge and haven't gotten a survey in my e-mail or my Kickstarter messages. I have double checked the spam folder and can't figure out any other way to check the Kickstarter thing. I checked the last six or seven pages of the thread by searching 'survey,' but haven't seen an answer as to what I ought to do.

    Any suggestions? I don't want to bug Rich directly unless it's the only way to get a copy of the survey, because God knows the man has enough to do right now. :P

    Try logging in to Kickstarter (using the same account you pledged under), going to the OOTS project home (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-reprint-drive), and looking at the list of pledge rewards on the right-hand side of the screen. If you pledged for the $10 reward, then that level should have a green "YOU SELECTED" box next to it. Hopefully, it will also have a link somewhere nearby to your survey.

    New update and final pledge total:

    So we've gotten the final tally for how many pledges went through, and the total of all pledges that were dropped (due to irresolvable processing errors or the like) added up to just $3954.00 from 61 backers. That represents just 0.32% of our final pledge total, or less than one-third of one percent. That is shockingly low; you'll remember that I allowed for 5% of all the money pledged to drop out due to complications. So congratulations to you: As a group, you have excellent credit. We also have the final total for how much we paid to Kickstarter and Amazon in fees: $106,799.87, divided up among the two companies in a way that would require more math to explain than I feel like doing. It does represent 11.71% of my completed pledge totals, which is a little higher than I had counted on (10%). Still, given how much extra I had allowed for dropped pledges, it's not a problem at all.

    From the latest update:

    ... the total of all pledges that were dropped (due to irresolvable processing errors or the like) added up to just $3954.00 from 61 backers. That represents just 0.32% of our final pledge total, or less than one-third of one percent. That is shockingly low; you'll remember that I allowed for 5% of all the money pledged to drop out due to complications. So congratulations to you: As a group, you have excellent credit.
    Shockingly low? How 'bout almost impossibly low. I mean, seriously, just due to the <BLOOP> Happens and whatnot you would expect a 1%-2% failure rate. To have only 61 backers out of 14,952?? On a drive with this much attention?

    Insane.

    Utterly utterly insane.

    Now if any of the 61 backers who rolled appraently rolled three straight ones are reading this thread, I'll say that my heart goes out to you that you weren't able to get things straightened out. But for everyone else? I have a simple message:

    Go Us!

    PS: Final Totals:

    $1,254,120.00 pledged.
    $1,250,166.00 cleared.
    $1,143,366.13 raised after fees.

    Not bad. Not bad at all.

    And a good job you did too.

    Honestly, I've had a long day and math was about the last thing I felt like doing.

    And it is freaking insane that so few backers 'bounced' their payments. And it was a ludicrously small amount compared to the rest of the drive.

    I'm wondering if the Google Doc should be updated with the final confirmed totals and number of backers. You know, for posterity and all.

    Might make a nice capstone to the whole thing.

    Now that my second to last survey is done, I'm putting more thought into my crayon drawing.
    It may be unoriginal, and when it comes to posting it here, there may be 50-100 just like it, but I really want a Haley and V drawing.

    Mainly, because This is the first strip I remember ever reading. It was the strip that got me hooked.

    And it has been a while since we've seen H and V just hang out together, without existential, psychological or end of the world crisis over their head. Just two friends together. I truly hope they come out together as friends, as unlikely as it seems right now.

    Got the survey at the $222 All Books package level. Fairly straightforward - now I just have to wait for international shipping on top of everything else.

    To add to that, when you order something online, you only have to pay a state sales tax if the product is being shipped from somewhere in your state, or the company is located in the same state as you (and there is a state sales tax in that state, of course).

    However, in the update Rich says that the Kickstarter and Amazon fees of $106,799.87 amounted to 11.71% of the completed pledge total, which would imply a total of approximately $912,040--reckon the missing $230k is all tax?
