What KICKSTARTER(S) are you BACKING and WHY?

Factories aren’t gonna get into the business of splitting off a handful of boxes and air freighting them. Air shipping from a fulfilling location to the end user might shave a few days but that’s about it.
Interestingly I read your post about 5 minutes after looking at the new Kickstarter from Phalanx Games, Coalition, and in the FAQ they say they will be airfreighting (using FedEx) to all backers:
"The games will be shipped from the EU using FedEx air freight, so the delivery date will be close to the production date. Phalanx will be responsible for shipping all the editions of the game."
Mark seems to have the pulse of the industry
Not excited about receiving the latest Conan KS stuff, which already takes up too much space. FOMO got the better of me a year or so ago. I'm thinking of trying to move the whole lot of it after I get the latest bit--if I can literally move it.

For a while, I've wanted to play A&A Global, and my wife has mostly enjoyed A&A Anniversary, but it's in all likelihood a toad in waiting.
War Room looks like a cool game I would never get to play.

This is a very good and versatile set of rules. You’ll find you can use it for just about any cinematic or adventure setting.
The “company” is a dad and daughter team.
