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.

I've just backed this on Kickstarter after waiting patiently since reading about it months ago. I'm surprised this game isn't getting much attention considering the pedigree of the designers and the fact that it looks solid. May 2020 can't come fast enough (well, that's not true, but you get my drift.)

Two words: no exclusives.

Also, maybe I’m just biased because of my current game selection but this genre of family-weight Euro designed for Target shelves seems kind of crowded right now. I’m sure this will do decently at retail, though.

Yeah, I think this style of game is not the type that's going to blow up on Kickstarter. I think they've actually done very well so far and am very happy they funded.

This. There's nothing that turns me off more about the current environment than how tailored it is to KS stalkers/mass collectors. I'm not even that thrilled with the whole "stretch goals that won't be available at retail for two years" aspect (Lords of Hellas, come on down!), but I'll tolerate it. Anything that lists a bonus for the first 24 hours/500 backers or whatever is an auto-pass. If I want the full experience of the game, I should be able to purchase it at my discretion. I'm not interested in spending any more time on KS than I have to (which is next to nil, at the moment.) One of the really refreshing things about Ravensburger/Prospero Hall's approach is how straight retail it is. New expansion is out? I just go down to my local store and buy it. Certainly, it helps to have the kind of licensed material (Villainous, Jaws, etc.) that the latter outfit has been pushing, since it will generate sales that an unknown like Tentacle Town won't and that's usually the argument that people will put out for a KS campaign to "build hype", but I'm not (ahem) buying it.
