Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
Leder games Oath chatter
I didn't know it was gonna be $90 either.
- the gameplay itself looks... finicky. Cole says "like 2 root factions" but it looks like there are CRTs in there and little arithmetic stuff and mechanical "take x energy, now spend and get this y energy which can only be used for...."... this kind of thing is a knock potentially. And it uses bots at 2, and the chances of me going regularly with more than 2 -like, sometimes, sure, but not mostly, and not regularly enough for a game with finicky kind of systems .... it's disappointing but I might have to sit this one out. I was pumped too!
Don't really give a crap about the book, or resin tokens but if the coins are as nice as the coins for Pax Pamir, it'll be a nice dumb bonus.
As expected, the thing has blown past its goals immediately and everything will be at retail so there's no need to jump to ks and order it unless you love coins and know you'll be buying it anyway.
As a side note, I find Leder Games' structure pretty interesting, almost no freelancers but full time staff designers and artists like an old school game company.
"How did the world get this way?" is one of the more important things to me in a game like this. I backed it without even really looking at the add-ons, though.
I also got a ship notice today for my Root expansion, so that's pretty good. Maybe that'll get here before they charge me for Oath.
I also like their current style of "full-timers" and no KS stretch goal/earlybird bullshit.
Not Sure wrote: My Root expansion is also slightly delayed because I also ordered the upgrade kit, rather than just the expansion. (I got the game+exp1 on the original KS). But the line has been "we ship it when we have all the pieces", so I guess some more stuff has been trickling in from the printers.
Yeah, my Underworld expansion + Upgrade kit is scheduled to arrive next Thursday. Can't wait!
