I saw an ad link to the Kickstarter on the BGG main page, but it didn't work. Then I came here and saw that this supposedly re-implements Tower of Babel. Which is my favorite (and IMO horribly underappreciated) Knizia. I generally don't like many of his designs, but I love Tower of Babel.

So, any info on this? I'm pretty excited to see this getting a re-design.

I searched for the project on Kickstarter as well and it didn't come up. I'm guessing it just hasn't been approved yet to post.

Guessing someone forgot to pre-approve their KS page.

I saw the ad yesterday and it took me to a KS page. The campaign was not live yet and they were asking for feedback.

This indeed seems to be the case, although the KS page makes you think it's a new game. I see some changes: the buildings have fixed costs and VPs but require 1 to 4 rounds of construction to be completed (instead of always 3). The publisher erroneously insist in using the word "bidding" to describe the game, but it has nothing to do with auctions.

I like the board idea of ToB, but I like the art in Planet Rush more. Paste the art of Planet Rush onto a board and voila!
