Villagers: Shifting Seasons – Retailer Pledge Information

Villagers: Shifting Seasons from Sinister Fish Games and illustrator / designer Haakon Gaarder is available for retail backers on Kickstarter.

Retail pledges are only available to registered businesses with physical stores. A verifiable business address and URL (website or Facebook page) will be collected in the pledge manager. If we are unable to verify genuine retailer status, your pledge will be cancelled and any payments made will be refunded.

How to Pledge

Go to the BackerKit pre-order page and add one copy of Villagers: Shifting Seasons to your basket, then check out. Do not add any additional items. Then forward your pre-order confirmation email to [email protected] and ask to be switched to a retail pledge. When this is done you will be able to select items at retail prices.

Your full payment will be taken via BackerKit closer to the time of shipping, and we will be in touch by email prior to that so you can adjust or cancel your order if necessary. We will send you an invoice by email.

Every copy of the expansion will contain a pre-packed free Stretch Goal Pack (retail value ~£5). Each expansion will be stickered on top of the shrink wrap to advertise this.

For each copy of Shifting Seasons purchased, we will give you a free pack of promo cards at no extra cost.

The Villagers base game and the 2018 Kickstarter Expansion are already in distribution and the fourth printing will be widely available before Shifting Seasons is released. If you would like to purchase either of these items we would prefer you to use your regular supplier if possible.

The Coin Chest and Villagers playmat will not go into distribution, and are only available to retailers as part of this campaign.

* Exclusive Kickstarter discount price.
