Making good progress on Kickstarter.

Re: 30% of the way there!
For some reason the rules still haven't been approved here on the geek. I am already a backer but it seems a lot of other potential backers are waiting to see the rules. Is there a way to post them on the Kickstarter page?

Re: 30% of the way there!
After reading the description and watched the introduction video, this reminds me the recent released game Flash Point: Fire Rescue. Actually, this game may include more fun stuffs (e.g. different random events) than Flash point which has fire/smoke/explosion.

However from the posted pictures, somehow I feel that quality of the components are not too good...

Re: 30% of the way there!
So...yeah

but...putting water on a fire is a bit different that dealing with thugs, car accidents, investigation scenes, etc.

As for components, it is hard to be critical of that based on prototype component pictures.

As well, the traitor aspect adds that funky uncomfortableness (is that a word?).

Re: Re: 30% of the way there!
I thought for a prototype it looked pretty darn good. I'm hoping they go with a more cartoonish art style (ala Grand Theft Auto or Max Payne or even rotoscoping). The image on the front cover is good but the text is painful to look at. It seems out of place. If they need ideas for over funding goals how about stickers for the meeples like they did for Carcassonne (which I think are available from the Geekstore).

Yes with the international shipping as high as it is for the Kickstarter project, there's no way I'm taking a chance to back this without first seeing the rules.

This will need a different supporter tier level before I am ready to back. I will need to go in with two or three supporters to make this cost effective. Having said that I see that pickup at Essen is available, this might be an option if a tier level was for three or four copies.

Re: 30% of the way there!
The Madmen Deck is a small pack of Event Cards with dangerous desperadoes for the police to deal with. To be mixed in with the Event Card to add (even more) challenge and variety :-)

Failing to effectively handle a Madman with send you to the Hospital, with card penalty, as usual (+ the difficulty of the Madmen is very high).

Cheers,
Ole Steiness

The box cover is probably prototype as well. I agree, painted art is always better for games than photos. This game looks interesting, I am going to keep an eye out on this.
