Are these actual physical cards?

Yes! The spell decks are real, physical objects that you hold in your hand! Unless, of course, you back only at the PDF level - then you will just have static images, with no animations!

Why is the shipping so expensive?

We’re shipping the decks from Canada which means we don’t the sweet sweet rates that teams fulfilling directly from the states do.

Why aren't the discounts as good as the last Animated Spells Kickstarter?

After wrapping up the last Kickstarter we noticed we had undercharged for our pledge tiers. The current price is a more accurate reflection of what we are able to offer.

Where are the spells from Xanathar's Guide?

We are working within the Open Gaming License, so for now, only the spells from the basic rules will be animated.

If we should get a full license down the line, we for sure will be releasing the Xanathar’s Spells!

Why did you choose to release the spell decks by level and not by class?

Several factors went into that decision - the cost for a Wizard set would be quite a lot more Paladin deck, and the stretch goals would mean that certain classes may not get funded, and we didn’t want anyone feeling left out.

We intend to animate all the spells - and we are considering also making them available by class, down the line.

Absolutely! We will have pre-orders as we did in or last campaign, as well making it available through our site - just like the original Deck Of Many Decks!

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.
