At last, Print & Play are doing a Kickstarter for DarkStar! The plan is to have one version (deluxe), and then stretch goals to get more deluxe versions of the parts. Having played several games with the deluxe version I heartily endorse this approach because - with Ilya's art - it is highly satisfying to use.

I've urged Print & Play to use the better card stocks and such because the tactile experience of play is important (IMO) for boardgames. Especially now that so much can be accomplished with videogames in terms of brokering opponents and automated bookkeeping.

I'll link the Kickstarter page here once it's up. DarkStar is a niche strategy game for gamers. It is pretty dynamic and relentless and pits player directly against player. Please let those friends who like that type of play know about the Kickstarter!

I've got a very early preview link here: http://tinyurl.com/darkstarpreview
This is a super early preview link, I just dashed together some stuff.
Feel free to follow along and see how a kickstarter is put together.

On the other hand, it is 135 for Europe in its cheapest form.
Let's see what the game contains, but I fear I might also settle for the PnP version (no pun intended).

That is why I am so happy about the PnP price, the other prices I can't
afford.

Yes, the deluxe version with a fancy box, wood blocks, mounted board, cards, dice, rules, player boards, etc ; It's going to cost $50 to ship worldwide.

I decided to add a regular version, the majority of the components will be the same, but the counters will be thinner (cheaper to ship) and the board will be thinner as well. Comes down to $95 international. Still quite a bit, but less than the deluxe. I will research and see the exact price for shipping so I can make sure to get international shipping as low as possible.

I realized that today was still Essen, and I'm waiting a few days for that all to settle down.

Backed for the PnP, purely on the basis of seeing Klaude talk about Dune. ;-)


(Well, mostly on that basis; to be fair, I'm also a huge fan of Ilya's artwork and design!)

Nice try Tullsen, but I am not letting you put stickers on my deluxe early copy. ninja I get to put on the stickers...

Those pictures of the standard and deluxe sets look NICE, if you have not already submitted a higher res version of them on BGG, you should. Can't hurt.

Haha, okay, fine, put your own stickers on!

I'll submit a picture to BGG, thanks for the reminder! (so many things to do!)
