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.
Please consider adding your quick impressions and your rating to the game entry in our Board Game Directory after you post your thoughts so others can find them!
Please start new threads in the appropriate category for mini-session reports, discussions of specific games or other discussion starting posts.
What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?
Regarding current stuff on their webstore, they are in stock. BUT, they are holding off selling anything until the last backers of OS3 get their stuff. The shipping SNAFUs going on are incredible...some software glitch has shut everything down for both Europe and NA for over 2 weeks, with The Gods War held hostage at the same shipper. And yes, most people in NA have their OS3 orders by now. They also are saying they have lots of the factions available, so hopefully there won't be an issue picking up WW when it finally opens up. If I remember, I'll try and update here when they announce they've got stuff up on their webstore.
Regarding the two CW Kickstarters being fulfilled at the same time, it will be two pledge managers. However, if you backed both, they will give you shipping credit on the current KS to make it equivalent to just having backed the second one (and used add-ons). So you're not going to get screwed over on shipping, but will need to complete both separately if you backed both.

This is something I do know the answer to. You can download the complete rules with all the errata on the website. I think you have to go to the CW shop and at the top of the page there are three filter buttons. One of them is publications.
Edit: Bah, no sooner did I post it then see that CMD already tested that...
Creating a listing for the Kickstarter is pretty easy. You don’t even have to put in a big long description of the Kickstarter. I just throw the one sentence description at the top of the Kickstarter the summary. And you don’t even need to fill in all the fields if you are lazy.
If you’re at all interested in Vengeance, you’ll want to get in on this as Mighty Boards announced it’ll purely be a Kickstarter product from now on.
I still love Vengeance. It's definitely a game with more narrow appeal than most as it's a bit of a real-time dramatic action puzzle that's miniatures heavy. Many people dislike the Euro elements (particularly the montage scenes), but it really nails it for me.
I pulled it back out a month or so ago after not playing it for nearly a year. It delivered totally and the new player at the table ate it up.
I just crammed all of Street Masters into the giant box. It weighs 25 pounds. I have entirely too much Street Masters, which is equally good and bad.
I don't know which I would choose if I had to. That's difficult. Street Masters probably has greater longevity and would hit the table more often. I probably prefer it as an overall product and system a tad more.
I would think you could find Vengeance for trade on BGG or somewhere for a more affordable price. The expansion content is much harder to find and I imagine the director's cut will be rare. You definitely don't need any of that though.
Buh bye Siege of the Citadel
