Vital told us in his words that it is coming to Kickstarter November 15th.

I think that Giochistarter is nothing but a Italian board game preorder service. I am not sure though.

It's an Italian platform, that does what kick-started does but only for games.
The money funded via giochistarter is added to the kick-started campaign.
I've used it for Vinhos and Princes of the Renaissance.

Does this mean paying in Giochistarter will get you an Italian version? if not, will it then be more friendly to European shipping? "friendly" as in cheaper.

The same will most probably happen for the "German" version at the Spieleschmiede site. I backed both The Gallerist and Vinhos there. As a service they produce German rules and player aids and ship without shipping costs in Germany.

So with Giochistarter or Spieleschmiede you get English KS version with localised rules as free addons? In this case I could just use one of these platforms and then discard the addons. Might save me on shipping and currency coversion

If things are the same like the Vinhos kickstarter you can order it from Spieleschmiede (DE), Philibertnet (FR) or Giochistarter (IT). If you don't care about the translated rulebook (english one is always included [at least that was with Vinhos the case]), cheapest shipping to Finland is from Philibertnet (10€ or for free if you order over 150€).

But is there a guarantee or an news saying the Philibert is going to take pre-orders for it? I know they did Vinhos. In that case, EGG usually makes a version without stretch goals, and one with... so which one would it be?

Beat me to it.

EDIT: when I pre-ordered Gallerist at a great price, I might add, I did so because Lacerda stated Philibert etc would also be the KS version.

I would expect this statement again on the KS page for Lisboa.

There was no non-KS version of Gallerist on Philibert when the pre-order went up.

Your guarantee will be to look at the More Details section below the title and box photo on Philibert if it is announced. Gallerist, if I recall, stated it included the KS stuff but certainly the KS page would explain regarding their Partner pre-order sites in Europe.

Just as a side note: I picked up my Giochistarter copy of Vinhos yesterday, it's the KS version with english rules PLUS the Italian rule booklet and player aids.

I'll definitely go for the Giochistarter Edition, as I bid both Princes of the Reinassance and Vinhos.

The only concern at the moment is related to the MSRP: 99 euro! surprise

I do hope KS pledges will be available at a pledge way below that amount!

Do we have any clarity if there will be pledge levels that will include either Vinhos Deluxe Edition or The Gallerist? I know it has been asked for on this forum, but there has been no confirmation or denial to my understanding.

I'm going to back this regardless, but I would up my pledge if there was a way to also get The Gallerist as a package deal.

Giochistarter has funded those project as well, so I think you can complete your order with those products as well. For the Vinhos campaign you could add the Gallerist. I don't remember the prices though.

Here the page of the Vinhos proejct:
https://www.giochistarter.it/scheda.php?item=1000066
you can see that there was a possible Add-on of The Gallerist for 78.71 € (don't ask me why that strange figures).

But of course for a US buyer the only way is kickstarter.

With Vinhos, Philibert let you preorder/kickstart the version with all the stretch goals.

Well, the Lacerda/O'Toole/EEG combo is a known quantity now. We know we're getting a game with quality components from a quality designer and a quality artist.

yeah sure, but the quality of The Gallerist was outstanding already last year. I was surprised when I saw the Vinhos Deluxe price, but know it seems it's their "common" price tag. I know it will be a phenomenal game, I really like the artwork and the quality of the game components will be great again. Also, the stretch goals add a nice thematic feel and some extras to the game. I'll have to wait some days and observe the campaign..

Just to let you know,

If you use paypal, Giochistarter let you pay in 6 instalments. I backed because it helped to overcame worries about unusual prise tag.

I too feel this EGG thing is getting too expensive.
Ive just backed Lisboa, but will refrain from the next games. I'd rather buy them on the second-hand market.
