I have to say it was the theme that really sucked me in to the KS page initially, but it is the intriguing mechanic synergies that are keeping me there! I am relatively new to the hobby, but I have looked at thousands of games already and have never seen anything similar to Rise of Man: Stone Age! Sure I like card drafting, simultaneous action selection, tech trees, multi use cards, set collection, & hand management but I have never really seen them used in any similar fashion, especially with the resource level flip charts. Anyone else feel this way or am I just missing something? Either way, this is a very exciting game in my KS backs!

Same here, they had me at theme.

I shared the campaign on Facebook and a couple of boardgame friends asked me why I backed it, so I had to go see. Turns out, like you, I find the mechanics interesting too and the 45 minute time-frame fits perfectly for my wife and I.

I think the game looks very interesting. I love card drafting and this looks just so incredibly thematic and intricate. I hope the kickstarter campaign will start picking up some steam soon!

Interesting looking game. Is there an ETA for this game?

It didn't get funded. Maybe they will try again at a later date.

Correct. They want to try fund a couple of different games, smaller items, and then hopefully build up a bit of a following. Then at a later date they would like to try for Rise of Man again.
