What a horrible idea! Rum & Bones is one of the most boring games I've ever had the misfortune to play.

Sure, maybe they have learned and grown since they were the assholes that stole backers money as Prodos.

Or maybe a company that has ( https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1582865/archonprodos-threatens-legal-action-against-bggBGG ) threatened to sue BGG over allowing people to discuss their past isn’t really a company that has learned and grown.


I couldn't speak to their sordid history, but my recent experience with Archon Studios has been positive. I backed their "Dungeons & Lasers Third Edition" campaign on Gamefound, and was very pleased with it. Good communication throughout, everything shipped on time, and the minis are great. I've never backed any of their board games though, just their miniatures.

Still not looking to backing anything new this year (apart from Tainted Grail: Kings of Ruin) but am thrilled that the second of probably two of the best games I have backed, Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood arriving earlier this year, is seemingly arriving next week - Aeon Trespass: Odyssey.
I'm sure that this is going to turn out to be an incredible game and experience, from an incredible young Polish company Into the Unknown - who have shown integrity on how to treat backers by sticking to their original low pricing for original backers, no additional shipping charges, and who are having to pay VAT to the UK again after agreements made with govts a couple of years ago have not been honoured.
The only downside is my game group may have to be rebuilt as one guy has been having terrible health issues over the last nine months, one guy has just been very busy with a new job and his other commitments, and another who sulked off when he was asked to stop continually being an arse in our co-op games ... but games don't go off, they will still be there in six months.

Oh man, you GOTTA drop the name just so I can watch the vids to see how dead inside the wife is or if she is a closet oscar worthy actress.

I backed Tiny Epic Crime. I like this kind of game and they really are good at making simple games. I’m simple now.

I was excited for this but LoneSharkGames seems borderline incompetent at running their last KS. It looks like prices have been jacked up and perhaps may be subsidising unfulfilled backers from the previous campaign? I applaud the mostly in America printing but decry the mostly in America shipping options. They're running a survey to see alternative shipping countries for next year but I have no faith anything will come of that. If a copy shows up locally I'll try and grab it but don't plan to spend £100+ on a game like this.

Lords of Vegas looks like a decent enough game but I don't pay $90 + shipping for "decent enough". That's some bullshit.

It's one of those packages where they're including all the stuff you don't want, and pricing to match.

$90 is just the base! That's not even all the other crap!

$90 plus shipping.

I thought it had Up in it. I didn't read in detail because I'm not looking to buy. My buddy has a copy.

It's a good game, but I didn't think there was enough interest in it to merit a reprint, let alone a deluxified giant boxed set. Hard pass.

There is some demand, because so few people are willing to buy used. And if it's going to Kickstarter they're going to do it big. Some mom & pop game might be on KS for $40, but anything from a "publisher" is going to be super-deluxe. Kickstarter is like 1990s porn. Everything is bigger than it should be. Go big or go home is their mantra.
