Are the rules definitive?

The game is mechanically finished, during the campaign we will update all the elements of the rules to give definitive ones that are as clear and correct as possible. At the moment these are not the definitive rules and are in the process of translation. We ask for understanding in this section and we guarantee to fulfill any expectation.

What is the cargo tower?

This is no dice tower, its a cargo tower. This tower adds a new mechanic to the game related to combat. When a ship is destroyed by cannons, all its thrown cargo will be placed in the tower. Then the tower, which has two exits for the loaded cargo, will randomly distribute the goods. One of the exists means the goods are lost in the deep sea while the remaining other is floating ready to be picked.

Can I pledge a $1 and pay the rest through the pledge manager? Will there be a late backer option?

Yes - we will be using a pledge manager that allows you to upgrade a $1 pledge, and will accept late backers for a period of time after the project ends. Please note that there is a time period for completing the pledge manager, after which time some items and/or shipping to some regions may no longer be available. In addition, the price of Captain’s Log may increase.

Can I add extra copies or change my pledge after the campaign ends?

Is Captain's Log really 1-4? How does it work?

Yes, thanks to the NPCs it is not necessary to create an automaton for the solo mode.

We are proud of the rules as they are not affected if the number of players varies. The only change is the number of NPCs that each player will control.

Why is the water not so blue?

The idea is to incarnate a captain on his cabin, the colour represents the maps that this captain can observe and decide his adventures.

Durante la campaña actualizaremos todos aquellos elementos de las reglas que puedan ocasionar ciertas dudas a la hora de jugar, de forma que podamos ofrecer un reglamento lo más claro y bien estructurado posible. Pedimos paciencia en lo relacionado a este apartado y aseguramos cumplir cualquier expectativa.

¿Qué es la "Torre de Mercancías"?

La “Torre de Mercancías” no se trata de una torre de dados tradicional. En este caso, añade una nueva mecánica al juego, relacionada con el combate. Cuando un barco sea destruido por cañones, todas las mercancías que normalmente serían arrojadas al mar, serán lanzadas a través de la “Torre de Mercancías” en su lugar. En ese momento, la torre (que cuenta con dos salidas para la mercancía introducida) repartirá aleatoriamente la carga. Dependiendo de ese reparto, una parte de la carga se considerará perdida en las profundidades del mar mientras que el resto, quedará a flote a la espera de ser recogida por otro navío afortunado.

¿Cómo de necesario es la dependencia del idioma del juego?

El uso del idioma se limita exclusivamente a los manuales de reglas, por lo que Captain’s Log puede jugarse con independencia del idioma.

¿Qué dimensiones tiene la caja?

How can I buy an add-on?

1) Click on the blue “Manage” button on the right side of the project page. 2) Select the “Change your pledge” button. 3) Here you will be able to change the amount of your pledge by increasing it to include your add-on.

Eventually, you can also wait for our pledge manager about 3-4 weeks after the campaign ends to add them directly there, which is much easier.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
