The Sydney guys have a great plan where they organise Kickstarter orders via geeklist. I'm not too proud to say I copied this idea from them. I imagine most orders will come to Brisbane, but Cairns etc are welcome to join us here.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2012515236/coup-bluff-an...

Looking for 5 others to get a 6 pack of coup going on. Regular amount through kickstarter for international backers is $29.

With a 6 pack it comes to $18 - which is a bit closer to what I's like to pay for the game.

If you're up for it send me a geekmail or reply to this item.

Kickstarter ends in 7 days so get in quick.

--edit--
Added kickstarter link

Also if we get to 6 or 10 pack you can add a copy of resistance or resistance:Avalon for $20. You'll also get promos for those games if you order them with the kickstarter.

And the older you get, the fewer things you really love. And by the time you get to my age, maybe it's only one or two things. With me, I think it's one.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2061897488/promised-land...

I think I'm going to back this regardless but I thought I'd check to see if anyone wanted to join in.

Add 5 pounds (per game) for the wooden bits & another 5 pounds for the additional cloth map.

Then the split (with shipping to Australia) is like this:

1 copy: 60 pounds (+ 10 pounds for wooden bits & extra cloth map)
2 copies: 76 pounds (38 pounds each + 10 pounds for extras)
3 copies: 100 pounds (33 pounds each + 10 pounds for extras)
4 copies: 124 pounds (31 pounds each + 10 pounds for extras)

Let me know if you're interested.

This looks interesting:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1438045410/xia-legends-o...

3 copies for $81.60 each
4 copies for $78.75 each

OR

3 copies + exclusive kickstarter NPC ship for $106.60
4 copies + exclusive kickstarter NPC ship for $103.75

Unlocked stretch goals so far are a "smugglers den" (I'm guessing a new map tile) and an extra ship.

Future goals are 2 extra ships and a support for a fifth player.

Funds on 22 June 2013.

Let me know if you're interested (geekmail or reply to this item)

The Kickstarter campaign ends on 9 March (Sunday)!

Here's the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1016374822/kingdom-build...

They will ship six copies to Australia for $90 USD each (so around $100 AUD each; maybe just a few dollars more to cover the bank's conversion fees).

I've already organised one group of six and I have a slot (or two) available for the second group!

The details:
- I'll collect payment from you via cash or bank transfer shortly after my credit card gets charged by Kickstarter (when their campaign finishes).
- When the game arrives, I'll let you know and you can pick it up from me at my house (Fitzgibbon), work (Brisbane CBD), or game group (Critical Mass at Chermside).

If you would like to obtain a copy at this Kickstarter's good price (especially since it includes a NEW mini-expansion and differently-shaped settlement pieces!), let me know as soon as possible.

As always: First in, best dressed!

The short version: You can get the new Donald X. Vaccarino game, Greed, for about $36 AUD, including shipping!

(And, hey, it's like 7 Wonders!)

The longer version:

Donald X. Vaccarino (DXV), designer of Dominion and Kingdom Builder and others, has a new game coming out called Greed. It's being published by Queen Games and they are, of course, running a Kickstarter campaign for it:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1016374822/greed

It's priced at $35 USD, but there's currently a second-level "early bird" for $27 USD. HOWEVER, the cost of shipping to Australia is $30(!), which obviously makes buying a single copy cost-prohibitive.

But if we do a group order, that shipping charge is spread out among all the copies. So I'm organizing an order for a six-pack.

If you choose to participate, your copy will cost $31 USD (plus 3% currency conversion fee charged by my bank; so, more like $32 USD). Obviously, you will pay in Australian Dollars (AUD), which should bring the total to about $36 AUD.

(Note that, in exchange for organizing this group order, I am having the participants pay my share of the shipping. That is, $1 USD of your amount is going toward my share of the shipping cost.)

As usual, I'll ask you to pay me via bank transfer when my credit card is charged at the end of the Kickstarter campaign. And, when the games arrive, you can collect them from me at my home (Fitzgibbon), work (Brisbane CBD) or the Critical Mass game group (Chermside Library).

If you're interested, please let me know as soon as possible. As always, first in, best dressed!

(By the way, I probably will not be at Critical Mass this Friday.)

I am keen on joining a group to bulk buy 6 or 10 Tiny Epic Empires Deluxe Editions.

The Kickstarter is about a third through so far.

I live in Brisbane.

Anyone interested?

EDIT 11 March 2348 AEST: Pledgers at the 3 x Special Edition Bundle level:

XB_XB
Sithchean
LineOf7s


This Pledge is Full!! If you are still interested, and don't have your own KS account and want to join with others, let me know and I'll see what we can organise, otherwise please feel free to start another bundle.

The latest Stonemaier Games release.

Looks an interesting game, and being a Stonemaier Game I have no qualms about quality.

There are two game options:

Standard edition @ USD29 or the Special Edition @ USD39. In both cases shipping to AU is a flat USD9 - how good is that!!

Between Two Cities wrote:
The special edition of Between Two Cities features a limited-run version of the game. The game itself is the same, but the box will be embossed in gold foil highlights and will be stamped with a number unique to your copy of the game (e.g., "1287 / 4000"). The special edition also includes rules in French and German (in addition to English rules).

The special edition will also include 7 additional pairs of city tokens. When we were designing the city tokens, we designed 14 of them and had e-newsletter subscribers vote on their favorites. The top 7 were selected for the retail game, but we liked the other 7 so much that we decided to include them in the special edition for extra flavor. They do not expand the game past 7 players or impact the gameplay in any way.


There are no add-ons.

I can add up to 2 more copies (1x Special Edition plus 1x Standard edition OR 2 x Standard Edition) for no additional shipping cost. So theoretically one could get a copy for USD3 shipping if there were another two folks who also wanted one.

I have pledged for the Special Edition. If you are interested and want to join in, let me know and I can adjust my pledge to add you.


EDIT: Only just noticed that there's a pledge level for 3 x Special Editions for USD108 which works out to USD36 per copy - even better!!! I have changed my pledge to this Bundle.

This game was on KS recently and is designed by a guy from the UK. It looks like it could be a decent light game with some nice thematic figures.

I spoke to the designer in depth about how his campaign was being run because I believed it deserved more attention than it got. He agreed with my suggestions and so temporarily cancelled the campaign and will re-launch in about a month with a better KS page, more info, reviews, etc.

I would be happy to organise a group if people are interested.
So this listing, at the moment, is just to gauge early interest.
Please add a comment

How good does this game look - great, quality components, interesting mechanics and great player interaction.

Rahdo's run though and Undead Viking's review show a really clever, stimulating game and I'm definitely on board.

There are no EB's, add-ons or variations in games (ordinary vs special editions etc), and some modest stretch goals. Game is US$64 (US$39 + US$25 shipping).

I have pledged but if you are interested there is a pledge level for 3 x copies for US$99 and shipping remains at US$25, which works out to US$41.33 per copy. I will happily change my pledge to this bundle if anyone else is interested.


Far Space Foundry wrote:
Far Space Foundry plays 1-4 players at 20 minutes per player. What makes this game unique is its interesting implementation of a rondel as its core mechanism, but it also blends worker placement and spacial management on a double-sided game board to provide a streamlined and strategic playing experience.

In Far Space Foundry, you will lead a team of pilots through two distinct phases - Space Foundry Alpha and Space Foundry Beta. At Space Foundry Alpha, you will manage the transit, storage, and processing of asteroid ore in your warehouse -- all while swindling with the Galactic Traders and hiring the expertise of veteran pilots from the Alpha Cantina.

At Space Foundry Beta, you will utilize the ore you transported from Space Foundry Alpha to manufacture and charge finished products, as well as upgrade your fleet. The recruit that can best load their freighters to supply our peacekeepers on the front lines will lead our mission to success.

Welcome to the Federation, Recruit. Your mission begins now.

Federation is unity. Federation is peace.

TIMES UP - KICKSTARTER HAS ENDED

Everything in one box.
I mean literally every expansion and the base game:
- Alien Frontiers
- Alien Frontiers: Factions
- Alien Frontiers: Faction Pack #1, #2, #3 and #4
- Alien Frontiers: Expansion Pack #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6 and #7
- Alien Frontiers: Outer Belt

I have checked on Amazon to see what the REAL value of this compilation is and it came in around $175 USD which was what the game came to after postage to Australia was included, so not great.

BUT WAIT, so many people complained about it they re-launched the campaign and about halved the postage cost. Now this is a great way to get this game as a whole. Included are a larger updated base game board and an updated board for the Outer Belt expansion. Also they will be including a re-themed version of the rare Space Crane card.
Maybe even more because if funding goes well they said they will put in stretch goals.

For a group we need either 4 or 8 to save. All prices are in USD.
1 game = $125 + $32 postage
4 games = $399 + $64 postage = $41.25 off each game
8 games = $750 + $89 postage = $52.10 off each game

Great savings to be had.
But get in quick as there is only 12 days left as I type!

Here's a link to the Kickstarter campaign for the Alien Frontiers Big Box.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamesalute/alien-fronti...


EDIT: COME ON PEOPLE, GET IN ON THIS!
Less than 48 hours left.
This is a decent deal for just one game, but when buying in bulk it is an awesome deal. Don't miss out!

Mix One Night Ultimate Werewolf with The Resistance and what do you get..... One Night Resistance.

Quote:
One Night Resistance is a super fast game of secret identities for 3 to 10 players that combines all the deductive and chaotically fun elements of the One Night Ultimate Werewolf series with structured game play of The Resistance. The result is a very addictive game that is easy to learn and will be played over and over again.

Every player starts with a specialist role and an ID (either spy or resistance). At night the spies reveal to each other (if there are any, as at all player counts there are between 0 and 3 spies in play), and then all players complete their specialist action in a clockwise order (removing the need for a rigid script/app and reducing the potential to accidentally reveal your role). Specialist actions include information gathering and role switching, helping players in their attempt to identify the spy before the the day is over. If a majority of players identify the spy, the resistance wins - but if the spies remain hidden, they win!



Copies are US$35 for one and additional copies are US$25. I've already pledged, so let me know if you want to tag along...

Update as at 14/4 - Currently Pledged for 10 copies: Cindy Games x 5, Skasian x 3, XB_XB x 2
