🌶️ WHEN AM I GETTING THE GAME?
Chili Mafia is coming to life thanks to a Kickstarter project, where 743 Backers (project supporters) put their trust in us and Chili Mafia. At this very moment we are arranging for the manufacturing and fulfillment of the games. In our webstore you can still Pre-Order Chili Mafia for a limited time to receive the game along with everyone else in Spring 2022.
The process: once manufacturing is finished, the games will be put into boxes, freight shipped to the US and the EU, go through customs and arrive at a warehouse. The warehouse staff will carefully inspect and sort all games. Once inspected, they will pick and pack your purchased items, label each box, and ship it to the address you provided. Please note that there could be delays at any point along the way, mostly due to COVID-19, but we and our partner companies will do our best to make the whole process as smooth as we can. Don't forget to sign up to our Newsletter to hear about the progress!
🌶️ IS THIS GAME ONLY FOR PEOPLE WHO LIKE CHILI PEPPERS?
Not at all! Even if you don’t know the name or strength of the chili peppers, you can easily learn the rules and enjoy the game! Based on our experience, players will not just get to learn the names of some of the most well-known chili peppers but they tend to choose their favorites by the end of the game! :)
🌶️ IS CHILI MAFIA AVAILABLE IN OTHER LANGUAGES?
It's important to note that the Chili Mafia base game is a language-independent game. The physical copy of the rulebook will be provided in English. However, as several Backers volunteered to work on additional language translations, digital rulebooks are available on the lemerygames.com website in the following languages: German, Spanish, Italian, French, Hungarian, Arabic, Croatian, Danish and Dutch.
🌶️ HOW MANY PLAYERS? HOW LONG?
Chili Mafia is a game designed for 2-8 players. Depending on the number of players and the game mode you choose (individual or teamplay), a game takes roughly 20-40 minutes.
🌶️ HOW IS THE GAME FOR 2 PLAYERS?
It's super FUN and QUICK once you get the hang of it! Players can enjoy a 2-player game as much as a game with higher player counts. Check out the rulebook for more details about the 2-player game. Just bear in mind that it’s a 'take that' game 😉
🌶️ HOW MUCH INTERACTION IS THERE BETWEEN PLAYERS?
As Chili Mafia is a take that game, there is always interaction (along with a nice tension) between the players. You can increase the interaction by playing in teams, where teammates can work together (add Chili Peppers to each other’s Chili Gangs, protect each other, rearrange all of their team’s Chili Gangs etc.).
🌶️ WHAT SIZE AND QUALITY ARE THE CARDS AND BOX?
The cards are standard USA size playing cards, 2 1/4'' x 3 1/2'' (56mm x 87mm). All cards have R3 corners and are high quality 300 GSM ivory core linen finish cards with a glossy varnish.
The Chili Mafia box is a supreme quality, durable magnetic box with with UV coating on its top lid. We also want to let you know that the box is sleeve-friendly. Should you decide to sleeve your cards, they will still comfortably fit inside the box. The dimensions of the magnetic box are: 7.9'' L x 5'' W x 2.6'' H (200mm x 125mm x 65mm).
🌶️ CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT THE PLAYMAT AND PLAYERMATS?
The Chili Mafia playmat is made of a high quality neoprene material and even has stitched edges for durability. This is the perfect mat to accommodate the Draw Deck, Hot Property Deck and the Discard Pile.
Size: 12'' L x 7'' W (300mm x 180mm).
The Chili Mafia playermats were introduced during the Kickstarter campaign, and are also made of a high quality neoprene material with stitched edges for durability. These mats have just the right amount of space for all your Chili Gangs, Hot Property cards and even your Incomplete gangs. Pick your favorite design from 4 spectacular landscapes, where some of the World’s most dangerous Chili Pepper Mafiosi were last spotted: Moruga’s nest, Poblano’s hideaway, Yatsufusa’s temple, Chipotle’s playground.
Size: 19.7" L x 12.6" W (500mm x 320mm).
🌶️ ARE LOCAL TAXES LIKE VAT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
It would not be accurate to include local taxes in the price as it differs from country to country. For the US, EU and the UK, applicable taxes are calculated at checkout (based on your order), so we can comply with local tax regulations and your game won't have any holdups at the border. For countries outside these regions, we are not allowed to collect taxes as it would require us to register an entity in the given country in order to pay taxes to local authorities. Games to these regions will ship Duties Unpaid, and the recipient may be listed as the importer of record.
🌶️ WHY ARE KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVES STILL ON SALE?
Our manufacturer requires us to purchase a minimum quantity of games. Until this order is sold, we are selling a limited remainder of inventory online. We also reserve the right to sell Kickstarter Exclusive items at conventions and give them away in contests. Thank you in advance for your understanding, as we are a family business, trying to make games for you on the long run!
🌶️ WHY WASN'T MY CREDIT CARD CHARGED UPON PURCHASE?
We charge credit cards on a rolling basis, typically once a month. This will become more frequent as our shipping date gets closer. Once we transition to traditional e-commerce in 2022, we will charge credit cards immediately.
