This is a preorder and will not ship until November 2021 when the Kickstarter is fulfilled. We will email you in mid-July to collect shipping and get your shipping address.
Shipping charges will be calculated based on your location. We are aware that for both the EU and UK there are now newly updated and highly stringent VAT rules in place. We realize there is NO way to avoid these and while these costs have increased greatly, we are committed to providing rewards to backers in both the EU and UK in a friendly manner. We are offering this as VAT/Tax friendly for the EU, UK, Australia and Canada. We realize not many Kickstarter Campaigns are still able to offer EU/UK friendly campaigns and are so excited to be able to!
Shipping rates are an estimate but should be very close to the following rates:
USA & China: $8/$12 for single/double pledge
Canada: $12/$16 (VAT PAID BY US)
Australia: $15/$25 (VAT PAID BY US)
EU/UK: $21/$35 (VAT PAID BY US)
Worldwide: $25/$40 (excluding Chile, Brazil, South Africa, Peru where we cannot ship)
Note for Worldwide we are NOT paying VAT and that you will be responsible for all customs/import duties on your end. We will collect all shipping costs POST CAMPAIGN during the Backer Kit Survey process.
Escape from the Asylum is a thrilling escape room experience in the form of a co-operative board game. The game is divided into two parts, and each part is a collection of five stories. In each story, you assume a role of a character trying to escape the North Oaks asylum. To accomplish that, you will have to solve puzzles and make life-changing decisions. Reveal more and more of the backstory and watch the stories intertwine as you play.
This is a fully-cooperative game for 1-6 players and actually consists of 5 stories per part and 2 parts. That is 10 stories total and each story will take an hour or more to play. With 10+ hours of content and scalable from 1-6 players this "escape room" style game brings some truly unique elements to the genre and is intended for players aged 12 and up.
How To Play:
You can check out the very simple 2-page rulebook HERE. The rules are quite simple but it is a hard thing to get into the details of game play without giving away too much of the game. Check out these videos for overall gameplay and theme / story without spoilers:
What's In The Box?
Check out this unboxing video but careful for some inadvertent but mild spoilers in this unboxing:
There are over 300 cards in the game along with 29 location envelopes, 2 floor plans, 6 scoring cards, 6 hint/solution books, 40+ challenges in various forms, a couple of postcard sized "locker cards" and a bunch of other components that we can't tell you about for fear of spoiling the game for you. We can tell you the game is 9.25 X 6.29 X 3.78 inches and weighs in at over 2.5 pounds (40 ounces!). This game is packed with content!
There are many reviews out there from all the different languages this has already been released in but most of those are not in English and many of the more detailed reviews contain spoilers, so we have selected just a few to present here.
Full Walk Through (SPOILERS GALORE!)
Please do consider this video carefully as it is a very detailed walk-through of the game and includes massive spoilers. We advise you to watch the very beginning and perhaps the last 5 minutes where the game is discussed if you are worried about spoilers.
This video is also a walk-through so it will contain spoilers and ruin the game for you. We advise you NOT to watch it but the first few minutes are ok for you to get a feel for the game we think?

Sleeve Kings Sleeves FAQ
I chose USPS Priority Mail Express but my package is late! What's happening?
As of October 2021, the USPS has temporarily suspended the guarantee on Priority Mail Express in the following countries:
These suspensions will be in effect until further notice. The USPS is taking all reasonable measures to minimize impact to their customers.
So how are Sleeve Kings' sleeves different from the rest?
Thicker Than Any Other "Standard" Sleeves -Most "Standard" Sleeves are 40 microns thick, a few are even 50 microns. Ours are 60 microns thick! That is 50% more than most!
10% More Sleeves Than The Other Guys -Standard sleeves come 100/pack. We are the only brand offering 110 per pack! 10% more in every pack!
The "Clear" Winner -Our sleeves are made from Cleartech™ Polypropylene. Our sleeves are made from 60 micron thick sheets which are demonstrably clearer than the other guys. You can actually SEE the difference. Just as diamonds are rated on a clarity scale, even 100% polypropylene can vary significantly from product to product depending on how it is manufactured. You will see the difference!
