Santorini (is shorter than 10 characters and therefore not permitted as a title!)

Post  PaulC on Thu 31 Mar 2016, 16:55

Is anyone planning on backing the rather lovely looking reimplementation of Santorini?

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/roxley/santorini-learn-it-in-30-seconds-play-it-for-life

To buy individually it comes out quite costly (~£50), but if 2 or 3 of us back it together, it drops to a more reasonably ~£40... with 5 of us, it's an even better ~£30...

Im tempted to back this, it looks good, I'd guess the quality of the components and weight mean the costs are higher than typical, if we can round up 5 of us, the free shipping would be a big save..

I was a bit torn by this too - but it was just the price that was putting me off, so I'd definitely join in if we can get 5 of us.

I'm tempted by this. There's an option for 6? will it make it slightly cheaper?

Yup, it is slightly cheaper for 6. Each additional copy works out around £25, so will bring the total down for the rest of us.

Still 26 days until it funds, so still chance to get it even cheaper!

So if there is 8 of us, that makes $270 for the first 5, $45 for each after, making $405 total, which split between 8 makes $50.63 each copy which today according to google makes £35.84 each. Ofc real exchange rates may be different.

I was looking at this - but then isn't the game itself really easy to emulate? Some wooden blocks and a few meeples? Other than looking great what does this actually offer?

So I decided against it (amazingly)

There aren't many games that can't be fairly easily emulated. Does this mean your game-buying days are over, in favour of creating cheap knock-offs instead?

Obviously... Laughing

Yeah - but a lot have cards or other text based additions, cardboard tokens etc which although easily copied and printed out would look cheap...
This I could see looking very tasteful as 1 inch home made cubes (varnished) and some meeples from Carcassonne or meeple source.

I'm a definite too.

Cheers for sorting this, just say where/how you want the money (I should be down tomorrow if you're happy with a wodge of cash)

Nice one, Paul. Let me know at what point you would like me to give you some money and I shall do so Smile

Aneurin - agree to some extent, and I wasn't going to back it originally. But with the group buy it seems like a fair price. There are some cards in there (with the special powers on) and it looks like they've done a really nice job with the production. I'm also keen to see Roxley Games succeed as their previous kickstarter was Steampunk Rally which I really like.

I'm in.

I too think it is easy to imitate, but the stretch goals are adding more and more cards, better quality components, and an expansion (which I have no idea what it is)

As above, no rush Paul. Though should ask if anyone wants to pay an additional $5 for a white box sleeve. I'm not going to bother, but happy to add to the order if required.

Agreed - if I hadn't found four other people to chip in I wouldn't have bothered.

Cool - I've backed it for 8 copies with no additional box sleeves - I can amend as necessary until the deadline.
