Haven't opened up yet (about to leave on some errands), but wanted to ask real quickly how many bonus thug cards are supposed to be included with the kickstarter rewards? I only pledged for the expansion, not the full game with the expansion.

Just opened the expansion...Holy Big Box with Mostly Air In It, Batman!

Components:

4 Casino punch outs
12 small Entertainment Tiles
32 Casino cards


All the components look fine. Cards seem of good quality. Overall, it looks good. Mayday definitely could have used a smaller box, but I'm throwing it out anyway, and I guess it looks better on a store shelf.

Expansion arrived today in New Mexico. Very nice to finally see the expansion printed, and the quality is outstanding.

Mine was shipped two-day priority, so with the cost of shipping Mayday was almost giving these away.

Notice to 1st Edition Owners:

The promo thug cards that come with the Expansion are a different shade of blue and the writing is a different shade of yellow than the base game. It isn't too bad, but for those that have OCDs about this sort of thing might be bothered.

How large is the box?

USPS claims to have delivered it a few days ago, but I can't find it.

Time to file an insurance claim or what?

Thanks.

Let us know how you liked it when you get it to the table. Unless we did something wrong (which reading thru the 4 pages of rules 3 times I highly doubt we did) it didnt hit for us. In a 5 player game someone built the biggest casino you could build on turn 4 and cruised to victory. It wasnt close 400+k to 200+k, 200+k, 133k, 60-70k were the final scores. I have a feeling we may have missed something. She ended up having controlling interest in the first speakeasy, then buying the big casino then bough the second biggest casino. After that influence cards became virtually useless to anyone but her. We were in a tight spot due to not having anywhere to line up to sell our wares that didnt benefit her.
