Hi, I have already pledged myself but I have a few friends who are in dubio of getting the Slacker Backer deal.
I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how much time they have left to decide, until the Slacker Backer option closes I mean.
Thanks in advance,

Lucky

As far as I know they havent stated till when Slacker Backers will be available. My Best guess?

At Minimum till Start of Alpha in August/September
At Maximum till official launch after Beta.

personally I think they'll keep the Slacker Backer Option till Official launch

They might give you some notice before it's gone during the weekly updates on kickstarter and hextcg.com . Then again, they may not.

I heard end of June or end of July can`t remember which "J" it was... Searching for the quote and will update with confirmation

I was thinking the end of June being the deadline for Slacker Backer and the T-shirts. (I remember thinking "oh wow, I didn't know the T-shirts were a limited thing.") I didn't have time right now to look for the quote though. Just wanted to mention I remember hearing the same thing, and I remember it being June. I thought it may have been on Kickstarter that they mentioned it.

Good call! So I am not totally crazy... T shirts end June 30th so Im sure Slacker Backer is that date too. Can`t find original quote at the moment

Yeah, I just skimmed through Kickstarter (find in page) and the only mention of a deadline is on the T-Shirts:


You can order the HEX, Ardent, and Underworld shirts through June and we'll ship in August.

So I probably assumed the Slacker Backer deadline was the same. I didn't see anything on the Kickstarter updates about a deadline for it anyway.

I seem to think it was a quote somewhere, someone official stating the T-shirts and slacker backer count towards the kickstarter goal. I am quite positive I heard it somewhere...

Maybe a deadline was given during a podcast or interview but this info is hard to track unless ur willing to watch/listen to 3 or so hours of content. So there are really only 2 options; if ur buddies are serious about backing then better do it now than later. This, or send an email directly to cze

Yeah, they said specifically that the slacker backers and the additional t-shirt orders counted towards the kickstarter goal in one of their Twitch TV streams.

I don't think Slacker Backer includes a t-shirt, so I don't think it is tied to the deadline for the Kickstarter t-shirt.

Often, slacker backer programs are good until the project launches. So I imagine that they will be available until the public launch of Hex. However, you'll want to do it sooner rather than later as it includes an alpha/beta invite.

Slacker is not that great of a deal. Since there is still time, maybe your friends could keep a lookout for anyone regretting their KS pledge.
