Good and evil; there never is one without the other.

I felt this was a weird campaign. Clearly successful, but I really thought it would do even better. But, in the end I think it was solid enough, even at the Sumo level. Here's why.

We get 6 extra monster groups including the huge dragon (that's 100% more monsters than in the base game).

We get 2 extra heroes -- Sumo and Trederran Veteran (that's 50% more heroes than the base game)

We get 75 extra cards (about 25% more than in the base game).

All of these will add a lot to replayability, even at the Sumo level.

Not to mention we also get alt gender figures for 5 6 of these heroes (these don't really effect game play like the rest, but they are a nice touch)

If you max out the estimated shipping, you are getting all this with the base game for $120. Online, you can get the base game for about $70. That means you are getting all this extra stuff for $50 (and even at online or sale FFP prices, this is a good value for 6 monster groups, 2 heroes, and 5 card sets).

Personally, I don't think the add-ons are worth it. It will be shipped separately and later, they will increase shipping costs, and it will probably be available online for less (and maybe even earlier... some of the add-ons area already available).

Shogun also seems like a good deal, but I'm not willing to drop $300 at this time. So, I'm happy the Sumo value is there.

Fingers crossed we get at least one more Sumo stretch goal (unfortunately, none are currently listed, but I suppose anything can happen in the last 24 hours).

Edit: We now get alt gender figures for all 6 sumo level heroes.
