Yep I backed it. And, from what I hear, it's about 30% 4X and 70% Euro fun. Should be right up your street, Karl! Looking forward to it arriving.

Monkey Butt game :)

Post  MonkeyButt on Mon 13 Jun 2016, 16:52

Hey guys,

if anyone wants to have a play with one of the prototype decks of Monkey Butt, I will bring a couple down tomorrow evening. Equally if anyone wants to have a chat about it/my experiences of running a Kickstarter/etc just let me know.

I know several of you have already pledged and that is greatly appreciated, but if anyone else wants to then we only have 3 days left and are currently at 92% Smile

It looks like we are making some upgrades regardless of stretch goals, but will announce officially once I have run the figures a dozen more times Razz

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monkeybutt/monkey-butt

If nothing else, you can have a chuckle at mine and Chris' cringe worthy performances in the video Very Happy

Cheers,

Anthony

PS. For those that don't know me, I will be the one wearing the way too small Monkey Butt t-shirt, assuming I don't manage to get my laundry done before tomorrow, in which case I will be the one wearing the fairly normal sized Monkey Butt t-shirt :S

Gloom

Post  William_ on Thu 14 Jul 2016, 16:24

I'm not sure why it needs a electronic version but I know it is played by a few: Gloom digital edition launched today and there are still some early bird ($10) options available so you might as well save yourself $5, plus your relationships are safe as it won't take up shelf space Smile

Hmmm, Kickstarter have emailed me to say "Congratulations, you're a Superbacker on Kickstarter". I don't think I want to know what the criteria for that are. Anyone else receive this "honour"?

Apparently I will get invited to events with the Kickstarter team. At least I guess I can just hand my credit card over to them in person ;-)

Just you, I imagine Paul. You are single handedly keeping Kickstarter running. Smile

I've got that honour today too...

Found the criteria, and its not as bad as I might have guessed Smile

How can I get a Superbacker badge?

Glad you're interested! These badges are added to the profiles of backers that have supported more than 25 projects with pledges of at least $10 in the past year.

Yeah, I guess that's not too bad... unless I try and guess what my average pledge has been (probably a bit more than $10) and multiply that by 25... nope, not going to do that.

To stop me backing yet another game... Lizzy, can I assume that you're going to back (or but at retail) Near And Far?

Ooh, that's on my radar too, but if someone else is going to back it...

Since we're asking about games:

Is anyone backing the walking dead game (No Sanctuary)?

I'm tempted, but haven't been swayed yet.

It does look pretty good, but I've already backed for too many miniature games so far.

Also... unless I'm missing something, no Carol, Carl or Michonne?.. That's a total Deal breaker.

EDIT: Oh I see now, they must be in the expansion.. That sucks..

I love Above and Below and really like the look of Near and Far, so I plan to back this at the "Quest" level (Near and Far, A + B expansion tokens and book). If I read the page right, you can back it at a specific level in multiples of 2 to save on shipping, so if anyone is interested in pairing up with me to back at that level to save us both a (probably pretty small) bit of money, let me know.

Near and far does look good. Not played above and below though and I'm fairly picky with story/rpg games. Can anyone bring it in one Tuesday to play?

I'm more than happy to bring Above and Below, Carl, but I'm visiting family in the US for the next few weeks, so I probably won't be attending SBGC again until September 6th. But if you're still interested to play at that point, I'll bring it along.

I'd be up for that Andy, i'd be backing the same level.

I can bring above and below one week Carl. I'm busy this Tuesday, but can do the one after?
