Deadlands Double-Shot Kickstarter—Wow!

Deadlands Double-Shot KickstartersSeriously. Wow. Your support and enthusiasm is really exciting! For many Kickstarter projects, this is the point where the project team starts really trying to ramp up participation—but you’ve gotten us way, way past that.

The Kickstarters were fully funded in less than an hour—that’s less time than combined early episodes of Gunsmoke and The Twilight Zone!*

The $200 Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition Boxed Sets sold out immediately, we opened more, and now only about 25 are left! Best hustle on that deal—it won’t hang out long. Over on the Good Intentions Kickstarter campaign, two new reward  levels opened to help those new to Deadlands Reloaded get started with the basics ($200, pay for shipping after the Kickstarter), or to get the ENTIRE Deadlands Reloaded collection in print, PDF, music, and miniatures ($900, free shipping to the contiguous United States).

For those embracing our digital future, Good Intentions offers the PDF for $20 and the entire Deadlands Reloaded digital collection for $150, and the Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition—now in color!—is available in PDF for $25.

Be sure to visit the Kickstarter project pages for both Good Intentions and Deadlands Classic 20th Anniversary Edition for full details on available backer levels and rewards and for ongoing updates.

And share the news about both Kickstarters to your fellow friends of the Weird West. Safety in numbers, you know!
