The backer survey has been sent!

Thank you so much for the fast responses to the backer survey! 380 of you completed the survey in 24hrs and that's amazing <3 Whole lots of warm duck snuggles for you~

For those who have yet to fill up the backer survey, please do check your email (both your inbox, social and spam folders) for it! It'll only take 5mins of your time to fill out and will help us immensely!

Lost your survey email or couldn't find it?

Sometimes the email gets lost in transit! So if the survey is missing and you'd like to get one, please do use the survey recovery link here -

Did you know? You can get extra copies of the limited Ducklings game through the backer survey!

Thank you so much to the 21 backers who opted to buy an extra copy of Ducklings through their backer surveys! You're so awesome! 

We only have 180 boxes of ducklings left! Each of these boxes will be the last of the limited Kickstarter edition of the game (and as it stands, we may not be producing another edition for quite some time), so this would be the best time to get another copy of Ducklings! 

The extra copies of Ducklings are on sale through our survey for a special backer price of $20 (U.P $40), so do pick up a copy for a friend, family member, loved one, for a present, or perhaps as a keepsake!

The survey will be the last opportunity to get an extra copy of Ducklings for the special Kickstarter price of $20!

Ducklings are gonna be on their way home!!! 

Here's what you're gonna be looking at soon:

To send you the game and make sure these ducklings get home safely, we need your shipping information! Starting today, we are sending out the BACKER SURVEY for your to verify your Ducklings, tell us your mailing address, and even add more to your rewards. 

Not everyone will get the survey today. We are sending out emails slowly so that the Spam Gods wont smite us. If you don't get a backerkit email by Friday, check your Spam folder. If you still don't see the email, then you should email Deck Head Games support: :')

Please fill out the form by December 22nd so we can ship it to everyone as soon as possible!

Ducklings is an exclusive, Kickstarter-only game. We have 200 boxes left from our 1st print. If you helped back our game and would like to get one for a friend, loved one, or just to keep for yourself/future kids, you can purchase some extra Ducklings! 

Here's what that's gonna look like:

Our Ducklings Game funded $28,000 and became a "Projects We Love" by the Kickstarter editorial team in under 30 days. 696 backers helped us make our dreams come true and finally, Ducklings are flying to their new home!

All our best,

Aimee, James, & Tim

And because so many people asked, we've made it so that you can order MORE DUCKLINGS. That's right-- if you purchased a copy of Ducklings and supported our team, you will be able to order even more copies of the game, with all Kickstarter exclusive rewards inside!

This is so magical. Thank you all again. ✨

Much love,

Ducklings was an IndieCade 2017 Official Selection!

 Hi everyone!

We hope you're having an amazing Thursday. We wanted to update you on how fulfillment is going. In terms of getting everyone their games by December, everything is still right on schedule. We're currently waiting on our manufacturer to send us another revision of our box as we previously weren't satisfied with some of the cropping on the cards. We've fixed our art templates and the new prototypes should be coming in right on time! :)

We're almost done painting everyone's duck miniatures!

 We spent hours finishing painting the duck miniatures and only have a few more gray ducks to complete. We can't wait to bubble wrap, envelope, and send all these babies out. We're so excited to finally have people playing the game we so passionately worked on for over a year and can't wait to hear people's feedback on their experience!

Thanks again for all your support and patience. This truly becomes a dream come true when all our wonderful backers receive and play Ducklings. We will send another update when our prototype boxes return from our manufacturer, when all boxes are finished printing, and when we officially ship out every copy of the game!

Much love,

Aimee, James, and Tim

We are so excited and honored to announce that we will be at IndieCade to show off Ducklings! We will be there for IndieCade LA's Friday Fight Night, demoing Ducklings and showing off our custom, 3d printed, hand painted duck miniatures for the first time! 

Please feel free to stop by our booth-- come talk to us, ask us anything, and play our game! :) We don't bite and we are very excited to meet you.

 To update on how fulfillment is going, things are going very smoothly. We can definitely meet our December deadline goal based on how things are looking. We may even be able to get everyone's boxes to them as early as November.

Thank you again for supporting our game. We hope to see you at IndieCade!
