September 21, 2019: Autoduel Weekly: Estimated Kickstarter Schedule

Last week, we gave you a rough idea of the cost of the upcoming Kickstarter campaign. The numbers in that post are estimates, and may change, and do not include add-on costs. 

Today, we're ready to announce the tentative launch and end dates for the Car Wars Sixth Edition campaign on Kickstarter. Please remember that these are estimates only; dates may be forced to change if we do not feel 100% comfortable once the calendar flips over to November. All that said, here's the latest schedule estimate for the project:

  • November 29, 2019 (Black Friday) – Project launch. If everything goes well, the Car Wars Sixth Edition page will go live on this day. There will be a small number of limited reward levels, for those of you who like special goodies.
  • January 6, 2020 – Project close. We're running this campaign longer than some of our other projects to give everyone time to join in. We know from experience that some of you won't notice the campaign until it has closed; we're hoping that a longer running time minimizes the number of "how do I get this?" messages once the project ends.

We are not yet ready to set an estimated delivery date. While selling Car Wars Sixth Edition at Gen Con next year would be amazing, it is highly unlikely. Both between the work necessary to complete the game and the time required to fulfill Kickstarter rewards, the calendar simply doesn't leave enough time for a Gen Con release. We will know more before the Kickstarter campaign is live.

Note: To receive email notification when the Car Wars project goes live, please follow both the Steve Jackson Games and Warehouse 23 pages on Kickstarter.
