    In pocket-sized zine format, a print copy will be sent through the mail and delivered to you, in an envelope, just like the good ole days of zines. Cost will include the postage, because, why not? If you're worried about where you live costing more, you can up your pledge if you want. If not, not a single worry. PLUS all print copies will come with an original piece of Blacked Out prose!

    We price our PDFs as much as Marco Rubio values the lives of the students of Florida: $1.05 per student from the NRA. However, for our kickstarters, we are lowering the price to $1, saving you a shiny nickel.

    Blah blah blah, Ekphrasis... but how about a print copy of Mister Density #7. Mister Density was the unofficial Crispin Hellion Glover fanzine. Known and celebrated worldwide, featured at the alt.you.media show at the New Museum in NYC, and known to Crispin himself. These have been seen on Lycos Auctions and other auction sites for more than $17, so get in on this now!

    Instead of being able to contribute $1 to us, you can let us know you believe in zines, and zine games, and throw a Grant our way. We will be most thankful, and will be in touch about how we can thank you. Obviously, you can get a copy of this game if you want, or any of our other stuff, but how about a custom Dance 'Til Dawn scenario? We will figure it out, but you rule!

    Two copies of Ekphrasis in print and .pdf, Black-Out prose, 3 books for you to Black-Out, and everything else you need to run the game out of the box (writing implements, note pads, playing cards, and even the calculations... sending a calculator through the mail might prove problematic). Maybe we will even wrap it up like a present.
