Surveys Close 8/3
4 months ago – Mon, Jul 31, 2017 at 08:08:08 PM

Attention Resistance Soldiers:

Hope you all are doing well! We delayed the closing of the last Terminator surveys because we had quite a few requests to extend it. So on August 3rd is when we will be locking down the rest of the surveys.

  • On August 3rd we will be locking down everyone’s survey who has completed it and hasn't had it locked down. Your credit card will be charged the balance of your shipping and any other add-ons you wanted to add. 
  •  After this point, you will not be able to change what you ordered. You will be able to change your address all the way up until we ship.

After August 3rd, you will not be able to add optional buys to your pledge. Only the items included in pledge levels will be available. We will also be limiting pre-orders to only the core game. So if your friends want a copy or some of the optional buys and haven't gotten them yet, now's their chance!

If you haven't gotten your survey, here are ways to retrieve it:

  • First off you’ll want to check your spam folder, it’s possible it got sent there instead of your inbox. If you signed up for Kickstarter with Facebook, your survey will have gone to that email. 
  • You’ll want to check any alternate emails you have in case it went there instead. If that doesn’t work, you should be able to recover your survey here: https://terminator.backerkit.com/ 
  • Finally, if all else fails, you can contact Backerkit here for support: https://terminator.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us

That also means that this is last chance for the Torso Endoskeleton stretch goal! We need 1000 follows and we'll up the number of Torso Endoskeletons to 6 in the Termination box! Follow us on Board Game Geek while you can!

 

Tune in tomorrow for our production update! 

We'll be back, 

Team Space Goat

SDCCI Incoming!
4 months ago – Sun, Jul 16, 2017 at 12:36:53 AM

Come in, Resistance. This is Away Team, do you copy?

Space Goat will be attending San Diego Comic-Con International at booth 1707! We have a display copy of Terminator and will be showing off full and jumbo size 3D prints of some of the coolest figures. We'll be taking game preorders at the table, as well as selling our Evil Dead 2 and Nerd Boss merch. Swing on by if you're there!

With the full, final copy of The Terminator with the design team, our display copy isn't fully playable. You can still peek some of these print files the it's made from:

 

 

Each 1984 location hex has an original illustration of one of the film's key settings.

 

We'll make sure to share plenty of con photos of the figures! While the Away Team is working their butts off at the booth, the Home Team is doing the same back at HQ. We—and folks who know a lot better than us—have been scrutinizing the 3D models for optimization and those results are in on Monday. The team of sculptors will immediately go to work adjusting, tweaking, thickening, and improving everywhere possible.

The survey has closed, so hopefully you grabbed everything you wanted! If not, you have until July 28th before it's closed for good. The percentage of backers who still need to submit their survey is pretty small, but we leave no soldier behind. After this final closure, the number of optional buys will be greatly limited. That is, most of the extras that aren't going to retail will be unavailable.

Subscribers have gone up to 771! Closer and closer!

We still have one social stretch goal left! There's still time to get those extra torsos before everything gets locked into place. Just head on over to BGG and subscribe to The Terminator—and maybe spread some love by becoming a fan, following SGP, and talking about how excited you are in the forums.

See you on the other side, troops!
