Yeah. Even I only have a pipeline of 15 Kickstartered games right now (and 9 of those are all one Kickstarter)!

Anachrony arrived in the country weeks ago. Weeks! And they still haven't been posted out yet.

Mine's out for delivery too. Going to have fun punching it tomorrow, and hoping to play it Tuesday.

$100 plus shipping is just too expensive given the current exchange rate. I'll gladly play your copy though! Smile

Very kind of you to offer Paul  Smile - I'm still mulling it over though to be honest.

It's shipping from the UK, so it sounds like that will only be around $15, but even then that's approaching £100 in total, which is indeed is a fair chunk.

As much as anything its interesting for the "$1.2 million pledged in one day" factor.

I backed my first campaign the other day, for Baseball Highlights 2045: Spring Break. Although I haven't backed the main game (which is an abridged 2-player version of the original) they had a pledge for a whole load of promos too.

Saw it and thought of you but resisted dragging you into the evil clutches of Kickstarter... alas, to no avail.

Yeah it was actually Arun that prompted me. I have actually been signed up to Kickstarter for years, I've just never backed anything.

It's not a boardgame but I thought some of you might like this: For for $1AUD you get at least 3 original comics (and two of them straight away) (by pdf download)

Have you played Gloomhaven yet? Just watching reviews of them today and wondered what people thought. Gloomhaven looks awesome, not sure on Dark Souls though. Sounds like it might get a bit dull

I backed the reprint of Gloomhaven but have since cancelled my pledge. Nothing against the game, I'm just concerned that I wouldn't play it enough to get my money's worth out of it... Oh, and I wanted to back Brass and couldn't justify the expense Smile

If I said i'd play it with you would you uncancel your pledge? I'd even chip in...

Well, I haven't started it yet. I was going to ask on here if people would be interested in starting a campaign at some point in the near future (I know Arun is interested) Smile

I've not mentioned it yet down to the logistics, as it weighs near 10kg and the box is currently rather large (and flimsy!)... It would be tricky for me to bring down to Uni Arms, on the bus! I'm probably going to try to make a new smaller box for it though, if I can. Might help.

I'm not against hosting it at mine, once a month or something. Smile

Well I'm definitely interested! I'm also concerned what I would do with such a massive box on a tram, so if I don't have to buy it, awesome :-)
