Can you tell us a bit more about the rubber visa stamps for the passports? How many are there in the 175 dollar pledge? Thank you, this looks excellent ( though I played Masks in 1984 when it came out and don't intend to play in the foreseeable future, the propos are too good to pass on)

There are currently twelve stamps, as well as a few different tax stamps (the sticky paper kind of stamp lol)

Radical, we just passed $9,000 and looks like we're on our way to $10,000!

Just hit $10k!

That means that the project has met 200% its goal in less than twenty-four hours.

Wow - that's amazing.  I do wonder whether this shows there is a wider market out there for props for the other big scenarios too.

I'm going to be talking with Chaosium about that possibility over the next few weeks!

If that comes to fruition, space them out a little, especially with holiday crunch on people's wallets.

Assuredly. Given what others have paid for miniatures or Cthulhu sculptures, this doesn't seem too surprising.

I hope this sort of thing tips CoC into having a more cohesive player-base. The synergy of so many people playing the same scenario at the same time could have interesting effects (like say: 600 page companion books, or Organized Play events). Well-timed, professionally made props for specific scenarios could be a catalyst.

I agree with this. 

I think making CoC a more tangible "game" really helps to explain the idea to people.

No one's really mentioned Chaosium. I think it's very good of them to, discuss, and let this project go forward. they do come in for a slagging sometimes, so thought I'd say the above!

I should say, my experience with Chaosium has been entirely positive, Mike Mason in particular has been really supportive/chill regarding this entire endeavor.

Yes, I think it will be very successful, as will others.  Just not too many close together. if there's a  big spate of Cthulhu Kickstarters, people have to pick and choose.

It's funny that this started out a few months ago with offering "a couple extra sets" and now there are already 163 people signed up in the first couple days. Congratulations. Who knew there would be so much demand?

Hmm, the goodies look good and I probably will pledge in a minute, but first a question. Have you thought about putting some of the items included in the higher tiers (poster, keeper's screen etc) available as add-ons? I love the design of the screen, but the $225 price tag instead of the $65 or $85 I'm currently thinking kind of puts me off. I'd add the screen (and most likely the poster) in an instant if it was possible to get it separately.

Me and Paul are still discussing the best way to go about creating an add-on system. It's likely that we will do so, but it won't be for another day or two at the very least.

Just to raise a point, now that I’ve gone ahead and backed, but how is all this going to be packaged? If there is of stretch goals coming, some thoughts towards maybe a box or summat to put it all in would be nice.

We have basic packaging already planned out, but if you're looking for something super-deluxe...
I have a woodworker sourced for a higher tier we have yet to reveal ;]
