Backed on KS.

Why: bought on the word of trusted playtesters and the games it reminded them of. Unique theme, well run KS campaign.

Late 2016 KS. Summer 2017 release.

Why: was an early playtester and found the decision space to be quite nice. Vital's pedigree is certainly a factor since I enjoy Vinhos and The Gallerist quite a bit.

November 2016 Kickstarter, delivery in 2017. Looks gorgeous and is reportedly a very meaty euro.

Edit: Backed at $1 level. May/may not follow through on purchase via BackerKit. Still contemplating. Went ahead with purchase. Have always been attracted to the artwork and the gameplay sounds enjoyable. Resistance was futile.

Reprint coming at Essen 2017.

Why: Splotter title that I really want to explore. Pedigree of the game is already solid.

Why: already backed KS for Deluxe Edition of the game in 2016. This one was a FOMO purchase (Fear Of Missing Out) that I may regret. Reserving judgement.

Received 4/18. Best packaging I've ever received from a US-based shipper.

Why: backed on KS in 2016. Ian O'Toole's artwork.

Depth of gameplay looks good; Solo gaming option, but could work through scenarios with my daughter and/or son cooperatively.

Why: designer's pedigree with Arkwright factors in heavily. Would like to see the rulebook though...

Caved and *preordered*

Mechanisms seem really neat.


Excellent game. Have played multiple times and would say it is in the running for my game of the year.

Why: loved Kohle & Kolonie (recent play), appreciate Haspelknecht, missed out on this one in its original incarnation (too new to the hobby and the original German title of it scared me )

Also: Clay Ross, the man behind Capstone Games, ranks the original as his favorite Spielworxx game. That's excellent validation coming from the guy who also published Arkwright in the US.

* Expect preorders to open around/after GenCon 2017 *

RECEIVED. Still need to play a full game, but from what I've soloed, looks good.

Novel dice placement based on "pip allocation restrictions" looks very interesting.

December 2017 was the goal on the KS for release.

Why: I've enjoyed Keller's La Granja and Solarius Mission, so his work catches my interest. Artwork by the very talented Michael Menzel doesn't hurt either.

Will want/need to see the rule book ahead of purchase more than likely.

Sophia Wagner's debut release, with art by two top tier artists: Klemens Franz and Michael Menzel.

More info needed, but suffice it to say, I am intrigued based on previous prototype info on the game.
