Rivet Wars

First Time on Kickstarter? Here’s How it Works | Rivet Wars: Reloaded

Welcome to Rivet Wars: Reloaded.

Revitalised, Reloaded, Relaunched!

If this is your first time on Kickstarter and you are not sure what to do then this guide will fill in some of the gaps.

To remind yourself how we got here, you can read the announcement again.

How to Pledge?

  1. Choose a reward, or ‘pledge level’, from the right-hand side of the page. Every pledge level includes a list of items you’ll get if you pledge at that level. (You can find a full explanation of all the pledge levels on the Kickstarter page, too.)
  2. Confirm your chosen pledge level.
  3. Customise your pledge with any optional add-ons you’d like to buy. Some add-ons might already be included in your pledge, so be sure to check the reward description, unless you want extra copies! If you see any add-ons you want, click ‘Add’ to add them to your pledge. This will update your pledge total.
  4. Click ‘Continue’, check the amount, and click ‘Pledge’.

And with that….you have one foot clearly in the trenches!

What Happens Next?

Around 4-6 weeks after the campaign ends, you’ll get an email inviting you to the pledge manager, where you can manage your pledge.

Once you’ve accepted the invitation, you can confirm or upgrade your pledge level, confirm or add any add-ons, pay for shipping, and confirm your delivery address.

Shipping is charged after the campaign, based on your location.

For most regions, we cover any VAT duties or sales tax charges, so those are accounted for in the pledge price and shipping estimations. You’ll find more detail on this on the Kickstarter page. Backers in other regions will be liable for any VAT or sales taxes which might be applied in their own countries.

Either way, there will be no extra costs for VAT charged by us in the pledge manager.

If you have any questions, you can find us in the comments section of the Kickstarter.


What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a platform where you can support creative projects (by “backing” them) to help bring them to life. It’s a popular platform in the tabletop gaming space, and is a fantastic way to grow communities and connect backers and creators.

Is this the Game Final?

Like many Kickstarters, we’ve brought Rivet Wars: Reloaded to the platform before all the gameplay and component visuals are final, to give you the chance to tell us what you think. Once the Kickstarter ends, we’ll share the journey to the final game in the Kickstarter updates.

How Do I Get the Game?

To support the Rivet Wars: Reloaded campaign and get the game, you ‘back’ or ‘pledge’ at one of the available levels. Every Kickstarter campaign offers different pledge levels that include different rewards.

Rivet Wars: Reloaded has four pledge levels: Core Pledge, Veterans Pledge, Gameplay All-In, Deluxe All-In. To see what’s included in each pledge level, check out the Kickstarter page.

For a step-by-step guide on how to pledge, check out ‘How to Pledge’ above.

What Are ‘Add-ons’?

Add-ons are optional rewards you can choose to add to your pledge, like gameplay expansions (which add new gameplay content to your game) and cosmetic expansions (which add deluxe component upgrades, like dual-layer hero boards).

Once you’ve chosen your pledge level (covered in ‘How to Pledge’ above), you can mix and match add-ons in the ‘Configure reward’ screen.

Or, if you want it all, just choose the All-in Pledge to get everything! And if you still want extras, you can also add add-ons to your All-in Pledge.
