Zestrea is a marriage negotiation board game inspired by Romanian traditions and village life. Zestrea is ready for commercial print and we recently hosted a Kickstarter campaign to secure just that. Thank you so very much to everyone who backed us, allowing us to reach an amazing 220% of our goal and secure a much better print quality! Zestrea is currently in production and will be ready to ship this spring.
We will distribute about 650 Zestrea copies in English and about 400 in Romanian directly to our Kickstarter backers, who will get credits here as detailed below. We will, however, print 1000 copies of each language so if you missed our Kickstarter campaign, you can now pre-order your Zestrea copy as detailed below. Pre-orders are limited by stock and will likely be distributed fast.
We prepared several shipping options for you, too. So please scroll down and read about the credits for our Kickstarter backers, about new pre-orders and about the available shipping options.
Kickstarter Backers Credits
If you are one of our Kickstarter backers, first and foremost: THANK YOU!
As soon as you log in with the same e-mail address you used when you pledged on Kickstarter, you should already have credits on Gamefound. The amount of credits is according to the amount of games you selected from the Kickstarter campaign, as well as the extra cash you added to your pledge. You should have a minimum of 25 euro credits per ordered game, or 40 euro per RO+EN option, which covers the cost of the games.
To retrieve your Zestrea copy on Gamefound, please choose the appropriate product(s) and then, at checkout, you will be able to choose a shipping option, which you will pay via STRIPE (the same payment system used by Kickstarter).
If you missed our Kickstarter campaign, we are happy to inform you that you can now pre-order Zestrea
here. You can find videos, images, information and beautiful Zestrea
art on our website
or on our Zestrea Kickstarter campaign page
To preorder, simply select the Zestrea game version(s) you want and Add to cart. You will be able to order additional copies during your checkout. You can also order multiple versions of Zestrea - for example, a copy in English and one in Romanian. You will then be able to select your shipping options.
We promised to keep the shipping costs under 20 Euros, which is why we collaborate with two shipping companies and why you may choose the quality of the shipping you prefer. You can also pick up your Zestrea game for free from selected locations.
For worldwide shipment, we collaborate with a German fulfilment partner that was recommended to us by other game board creator friends - so we trust them to deliver in good time and good quality.
They offer two shipping options: the cheaper one is through Deutsche Post and will be under 20 Euro. This option provides a tracking number and collaborates with national postal services. This option does not include insurance, so if your national postal service is unreliable and your Zestrea copy will be lost or damaged, there is no solution to go to. We recommend that you use your own wisdom and experience in relation to your national postal services if you choose this option.
The more expensive shipping option is in collaboration with DHL and it includes tracking and insurance. This option exceeds 20 Euro in many cases. However this guarantees that if your Zestrea game is lost or damaged, the shipping company takes full responsibility and you will get a new Zestrea copy shipped to you at no extra cost.
For shipment in Romania, we will use Poșta Română since it is the absolute cheapest option we could find. This will, of course, cost way under 20 Euros.
For free pick-up, you can get your copy of Zestrea from Cluj, Copenhagen and Stockholm, as well as Bucharest in certain occasions. This has a very wide time limit - the games will be in our homes and offices - so you can pick it up at your convenience. Stay tuned for exact addresses for free pick-up - we will provide additional information as soon as we get the copies. For Bucharest, we will announce in time the events and occasions where you can come and pick up your copy.
