Just so everyone else does not have to repeat the cost analysis, I've compiled the prices from a well known OLGS and the Blood Rage KS for comparison. Obviously Rising Sun is a different thing all together, but I figured this will shed light on CMON's pricing structure and help you make an informed decision when Rising Sun hits KS.

This is not an endorsement of any OLGS or the CMON KS. Do your own research and make your own decisions.

OLGS Prices
$59.99 - Blood Rage: Core Game Box
$15.99 - Blood Rage: Gods of Asgard Expansion
$19.99 - Blood Rage: Mystics of Midgard Expansion

$23.99 - Blood Rage: 5th Player Expansion

Free Shipping over $100

OLGS Totals:
$119.96 - Core + Expansions + 5th Player
$95.97 - Core + Expansions
$59.99 - Core Box Only


Kickstarter Prices
$75.00 - Blood Rage: Core Game Box ($70 Early Bird)
Included - Blood Rage: Gods of Asgard Expansion
Included - Blood Rage: Mystics of Midgard Expansion
** Extras ** 4 Monster Sculpts, 1 new Clan (+shaman), 3-D Tokens

$30.00 - Blood Rage: 5th Player Expansion
** Extras ** 3 Alternate Monster Sculpts

$10.00 Shipping to U.S.

KS Totals:
$115.00 - Core + Expansions + 5th Player
$85.00 - Core + Expansions


Early Bird KS Totals: (Gone in less than 2 min)
$110.00 - Core + Expansions + 5th Player
$80.00 - Core + Expansions

Thanks, this is the first CMON game I might be interested in so it's helpful to see the numbers in once place A correction though--I looked at the KS page for blood rage, and I see a $70 Early Bird rather than $75. Also, if shipping is $10, where is the extra $10 coming from in the KS totals? Was shipping $20?

Prices of KS vs Retail is basically the same with KS being slightly better, but the big difference being the exclusives.

If it turns out to be a game you like, you get a better value by backing

Thanks, for the catch! Updated above.

To be fair, purchasing the Core Box only will cost the least of all options if you don't need the exclusives and expansions.

With that said, I think I will be trying to hit the Early Bird with Rising Sun.

Anyone know how long the Early Bird usually lasts?

A few minutes...at best.

Check out Clockwork Wars. It's a pretty darn good dudes on a hex map Euro'ish steampunk game. Quick and fun.

A few minutes minus one second, because I'll be ahead of you in line.

One minor correction - there were four bonus monsters for Kickstarter, not three.

Given what those Blood Rage KS monsters sell for on their own now, it was definitely worth backing!

Save yourself the aggravation and wait a couple hours after launch. CMON mega-projects always overwhelm the KS servers and people have pledges in limbo for hours, sometimes days, when they try to get in during the opening minutes.

Don't stress about the early bird, I've never been quick enough to get one as the campaign starts, but they are easy enough to pick up later as people are constantly dropping out over the life of the campaign.

Same here. I snatched up a stray early bird late during the Rum & Bones Second Tide Kickstarter, and I saw another one randomly pop up later. Keep a vigilant eye on it and you stand a decent chance of snagging one when someone drops out.

Blood Rage Core Box was recently 39.99 at CardHaus. Problem is, you would have needed to wait a year to get that price.
