FAQ: Star Crossed
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Can I just get the rules booklet?

We have no plans for a printed booklet-only option at this time.

We spoke with many of our industry friends, and debated among ourselves, about having this option available. Ultimately, we want you to have the best experience of this game possible. The Beloved Edition is not just a beautiful boxed set. Yes, you can show it off. But you can also pack it up into one neat package. Take it to your next gaming convention. Bring it to the cottage. Take it on a date. Show it to someone you care about--maybe someone who's never seen a game like this, and will be excited to learn what it's all about.

They won't have to print character sheets, and cut out cards, and find their own tumbling tower of bricks. They can just open the box, and start playing.

We know that the price point is a bit steep for some people; that's why having a $10 PDF option is essential.

But the Beloved Edition? It’s absolutely luxurious. You'll be holding a sturdy box, matte finished to show off Jess Fink's adorable art. Inside you'll find more artwork in the printed rule book, as well as helpful tear-away pads of character sheets for both Lead and Follow roles. The scene cards are index card sized (a story gamer favorite) and you'll have an X Card included in the same envelope. And yes, you'll have a tower. We found one we love. We think you'll love it too, boxed up with everything you need to play this romantic, dramatic game of ill-fated romance.

How much will it cost to ship my game?

We won’t know the exact cost until the time of shipping, which is why we’re doing shipping charges via BackerKit. We also don’t know now what your customs charges will be. Our estimated ship date is December 2018, and shipping rates can fluctuate significantly over time.

If you need an estimate, get in touch and we can provide you with a rough approximation, based on current rates. We’re happy to chat at info@bullypulpitgames.com.

(You can, of course, always use your favourite ships as inspiration when playing Star Crossed.)

Wasn’t this called Tension before?

Yep! But we gave it a pretty name, because it is a pretty game.

Will Star Crossed be available to retailers?

Yes! We've just added the STRICTLY BUSINESS reward level, just for retailers. You'll get four (or more) copies of the Beloved Edition at 50% off of MSRP at the same time as the other Kickstarter backers.

In addition, we plan to make Star Crossed available through our usual distribution channels as soon as it is available. That includes distributors in the U.S., Canada, the UK, and beyond. If you have a specific distributor you'd like to have carry the game, or want to talk to us about a direct wholesale order, please contact us at info@bullypulpitgames.com.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
