I backed it. Proven product, proven company, no Kickstarter FOMO bullshit or stretch goals.

And they used a pull from my review.

It sounds like the 3rd printing has all of that stuff in it. Updated boards are $5 for 1st and 2nd printing sets. I may order the base game and then determine if I need to order the boards based on what version I wind up receiving. That way I can play the base game quite a bit earlier.

Yeah, for sure. The base game on its own is still great. If you're able to nab Riverfolk expansion do so; both factions in there are loads of fun.

Maybe I'm blind, but I'm not seeing anything on the page about the updated board for $5.

Yeah, I'm doing it. I have the base game but not the first expansion and I'm very glad that they put out an update pack with this.

For me, this is one of those very easy kickstarters to back tbh beyond the expense since I need to get both expansions.

Real question is which or any add-on bits to get. Don't know if I need the automated thing but it might be fun?

Yeah, I'm in for this and the $5 upgrade kit. Mine is the original KS printing.

The bots boards I'm not so sure on. Maybe, but I'm not much a of a soloer and adding robots to non-solo games does't really appeal either.

That's where I'm at. I got Root and the exp at retail so I still need the "patch". Bringing lizards up to parity with every other faction is directly at odds with what Cole originally intended but I'm still really excited to see how that goes.

I wouldn't say I need the patch, but for $5 it's an easy sell if I'm going to do the expansion anyway. I haven't played it enough to really exhaust the potential in the last kickstarter.

So, this is somewhat of a shill post for some real-life friends of nearly 20 years who retired from my technology company and started up a board game company, with their first game on Kickstarter: Plunderbund . It's a light deck building game with some area control and a market system modeling emerging technology markets (which the designer is a former marketing executive for enterprise storage). Thematically they've branded this as black market trading in a prohibition-era high fantasy (IE. off-brand D&D). I'm backing the game for quite obvious reasons, but if that sounds like your bag, please check it out.

though i try to resist, the SeaRovers kickstarer looks like a thing i'll probably back. i guess the games been around in various forms for a long time. theres a review on BGG by michael barnes from 2007, even.

That was a really fun game back in 2007- I have no idea what has changed with it since then though. Van was a cool guy, I didn’t know he was still putting this out there.

I guess searovers got cancelled and is going to relaunch in a couple weeks with gameplay videos and stuff in place. It was kinda limping to the finish line, and people wanted a better campaign? Hopefully it's still the reasonably priced straightforward thing when it relaunched but we'll see.

Out of curiosity, I counted how many Kickstarters I pledged for and later sold. 8 out of 14. That's not a great statistic.

I've kept 4 of 8 board game KS's. I've also backed a few KS just to get expansions and have kept all of those. I only have 1 game I'm waiting on, Dawn of the Zeds, and I expect it's a keeper so soon it will be 5 of 9. Pretty sure I've bought more KS games at retail than I have from KS and I've kept almost all of those.
