I have a feeling stretch goals will mean more sculpts, and while I like having variety, I also like having more bread and butter pieces as well. It's a double-edged sword.

Here is how the KSV stretchgoals were figured out:

Design Encounter 1. Ok, cool. It has 23 pieces. Now, remove 3 pieces. Add them back in at $500,000/750,000/1,000,000. Done. We have stretch goals taken care of.

Yep. That is how it was done. Or at least I don't see a single example of when this was not truly the case in KSV.

Please... do not do that again. :)

They could have had a stretch goal of like for encounter 1 for every 500k add another straight wall. Not needed for the encounter but useful for making the room bigger or for other builds. Or, could have been regular torches but super cool bad ass torches in addition to regular ones if reach 3 million. Stuff like that.

stretch goals should be for ALL backers over a certain level

when you are only getting certain encounters and you don't have an SG to hope for for 400K it kinda takes the fun out

Maybe the stretch goals should be an extra bonus Encounter (or two), divided into utility pieces and some flash. Doesn't take away from the main Encounters this way. Won't necessarily mean lots of extra sculpts (and therefore extra mold costs).

I agree with this. Every stretch goal so be something that everyone is looking forward to getting.

That is the was it did feel. Kind of lackluster.

It is a problem with the encounter system mostly, as no everyone is getting every encounter. As I ended up with only 4 and was only getting two for the longest time, most stretch goals were meaningless to me, and the ones that did hit all or most encounters were really not very impressive.

I do think stretch goals need to be tied to backer payment, or something like that.

Make all the special “chase” pieces the SG, and base them on your overall pledge $$ amount - with no link to which/any encounters.
