Someone mentioned in another thread that there will be a KS project for the Big Box. Anyone have any news on when this will happen? Thank you for your time.

Probably before the end of the year.

I suspect end of this month or sometime next month.

I preordered it through Amazon Germany and I received the following message a couple of weeks ago:

"Queen Games 6113 - Fresko Big Box, Brettspiele"
Voraussichtliches Lieferdatum: 26. Februar 2014

It will be delayed until February 2014.

cry Was hoping to see it this year. As a stained glass hobbyist, i love the idea behind this game, but have been holding off on purchase, ever since i heard the big box was coming.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop. The info is much appreciated!

Any more news? Is this definitely going to be on KS first, or is it going to just go straight to retailers? I'm hoping for the latter as I've wanted Fresco for a while, but held off waiting for this box. If it's going to KS first, that's going to mean a longer delay. Bummer.

You and me both. I've wanted this game for awhile now, but have put it off because I want the big box so much more.

OLGS has the game and the separate expansions coming in at about $100 (after the 30% off). Through Kickstarter it is $70 ($60 for early bird, tweet-tweet ) and the goal was met so a new free board with different art has been included. Free shipping and before retail stores have it. Did you want it cheaper? I feel like I'm making off like a bandit!! ninja

After reading the details of the KickStarter campaign, I'm a little confused about the release date.

Estimated Delivery says May 2014. Right before the Risks and Challenges section, they have a disclaimer stating that games will be available in North America 6-8 weeks after the EU. So does that mean the game will be available in the EU in May and not available in North America until June/July? Or will it be available in the EU around March/April and available in North America around May?

the big box will be sold by OLGS in the $55 range, and is already available for preorder at a few of them. Shipping to US backers will not be that much earlier than when available to retailers, if you read their disclaimer about staggered shipping times. what you will get is the extra board. so IMHO to give Queen Games a $60 or $70 interest free loan (with the possibility of defaulting on it) for 5-8 months, to only get rewarded with an extra board - no thanks.

Queen Games has been doing that for a long time.

And remember, their KS projects are pretty much univerally train wrecks. Missing components, delays, damaged components that are never replaced, outright lies, replacements of promised rewards with cheaper substitutions and some of the worst customer service out there. Think twice before you support this.

Gotta disagree with you here. Spending an additional $5 for an extra board sounds like a good deal to me.

This.

I think Fresco seems like a game my parents will like (they love Carcassonne and Alhambra sorta games), so I want the Big Box, but my experience with them sofar has been horrible. They promised me replacement parts for the Alhambra Big Box I got with their Speculation KS, but nothing yet. Not even an update after I asked for one several times. I just commented on the Fresco comments section about this issue and they just don't respond. They do respond to others though.

I am already worrying what will be missing/wrong with the Fresco Big Box when it arrivés, if I decide to keep my pledge.

Test
After reading all of your comments and seeing them ignore Khonnor's legitimate question in the comments section while quickly answering others questions I decided to cancel my pledge. I only have so much money to spend on games and I'm not risking it on a company with, at best, sketchy customer service. Especially in an industry where so many companies are so excellent in their treatment of their customers.

It's a pretty solid gateway game, but not necessarily with expansions, so you don't really need big box for that purpose..

Is there enough value in the expansions? Are any of them 'must have' - otherwise it is cheaper to buy the base game.

I have most of them (expansions)...I would not play without them anymore but with new players its better IMO to play base game then bring the expansions in a little at a time....but as a gamer I would think you would want them all....

My question is....will this last expansion be released as a stand alone...so people like myself that have everything but the 7,8,9 or whatever its call expansion will be available to us...I have no need to buy everything again.....
