Is it too soon to be thinking of Christmas? CRWN Studio’s Kickstarter The Adventure Box does not say Christmas, seasonal or festive, but it does have socks, a snowglobe and other snow-themed items such as dice! The reward tiers do declare “holiday”.
It’s hard not to look at this and think, “If I had this in time for Christmas… so many gifts would be sorted!” and then notice the estimated delivery date in December 2021.
Curious? Let’s take a look.
Well now. That’s a memorable pitch video for an unusual Kickstarter. We usually get one thing at a time.
It’s not quite all-or-nothing in the pledges, though. Whereas Kickstarter write-ups usually discuss the proposal before looking at costs, I think it makes more sense to unpack The Adventure Box and do tiers simultaneously.
Side Quest A
The first of three possible “side quests” costs $45, as they all do, and that will get you;
- Snow Globe
- Ugly Holiday Greeting Card
- Green Jelly Greeting Card
- Foot-Holder Socks
- All unlocked stretch goals
Side Quest B
- Dice Guardian
- Green Jelly Socks
- 2021 Collectible Ice-Jelly Enamel Pin
- Stretch goals
Side Quest C
- D20 LED Lights
- Large 25mm Snowflake D20
- Adventure Mug
- Stretch goals
Yes, like me, surely the items which tempt you the most are spread across the side goals.
The Adventure Box
It’s $100 plus shipping for everything. Or, if you have $180, then you get two of everything.
The project has set itself a target of $50,000 to fund. That seems high, but I think it’s wise. CRWN Studios absolutely need to make sure they can afford every plastic inch of this.
There are 25 days left on the campaign at the time of writing and now over 100 backers. That’s more than $10,000 towards that $50,000 goal. It might just get there, and if it doesn’t, you’ll know by the end of the month with plenty of time to find alternative gifts.
Stretch goals include Richard Lichman’s Lucky Dice and a bandana.
Shipping is expected to start at around $26 for one adventure box, $20 in the States, $23 in Canada, $26 in Brexit Britain and $62 for Asia Pacific.
