A great comment just posted from a backer.... Come on out and we might be able to unlock the Female Miniature. The game plays fantastic solo, or with up to 6 players.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1545517208/run-fight-or-...

"I've played this and I can say it's wonderful--the best game I played at the DiceTower Con. An absolute gem of careful game design and full-paced fun. Come on, this one is well worth backing! .... Better than King of Tokyo. So much frenetic fun! I'll keep sharing this kickstarter with everyone I know. So close!"

Thanks Vernon. -Jason

I admit, I was on the fence at the beginning of this campaign, but I am sold now. I got on board for a few reasons. First, this game has been around for a while, comes from a great designer, and really seems like a game that has fully realized its potential. Second, 8th Summit has been amazing at listening to their backers and running a great campaign. I am very thankful they made the choice to put out of reach stretch goals, within our grasp. Lastly, the game plays in a reasonable amount of time, has depth, looks to be fun, and is not very intimidating to new gamers. I have a feeling that this may just be one of my go to gateway games for new gamers!

---Plus that card holding Boss Zombie Miniature (will only ever be available through this KS) is pretty dang cool... I hope people will take the time to check the game out before it all ends!!

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on this game! We are SO CLOSE to the next stretch goal too with just 6.5 hours to go!

I have been utterly blown away with how well they have run this campaign and even taking the time to personally answer questions. Truly a top notch company & designer!

However this plays out THANK YOU GUYS for putting out such great product!

If a person who has an evil heart gets the Triforce, a Hero is destined to appear... and he alone must face the person who began the Great Cataclysm.

If the evil one destroys the Hero, nothing can save the world from his wicked reign. Only a person of the Knights Of Hyrule, who protected the royalty of Hylia, can become the Hero...

This game looks absolutely amazing and can not wait to get my hands on it and take it to my Wen night group to share with everyone there. I know it is going to be a hit. Also thank you for adjusting the stretch goals for us. Very generous of you.

I can't wait to play this game. 8th Summit has been great in answering all of out questions and comments. No to mention ran an amazing campaign. I am happy to know I was part of getting this excellent game on the market no matter what happens with the stretch goals (although the female zombie would be awesome)!

I was so excited for this game, I made sure I was one of the first ten or so people to pledge. It has been a month now - and I am even MORE excited for the game. I am not too sure I can say that about any other project I have backed.

I am sure they are getting sick of hearing it - but 8th Summit and Jason Maxwell has sealed the deal in making a true blue fan out of me. If customer loyalty still means anything, they've one hell of a loyal one in me.

Plato's Theory of Forms rings true here: When I think of a successful Kickstarter campaign, this is the one I will think of as benchmark.

I am not one to trumpet such things usually - but that is really cool, Cole.

I can tell my wife, "That guy was one of the people that made these barricades happen, you know."

And even better: Jason is going to toss you extra copies for your friends. That is a perfect representation of Mr. Maxwell's feelings towards his fans; top notch effort on his part.

Woot! Just hit the 90k Stretch goal for Barricade location cards. We have 4hrs to get 9k more for the final stretch of the campaign! I really hope we hit the goal and get the female zombie sculpts. However, even if we don't, all the minis look amazing thanks to Chad Hoverter (guy who did the awesome Mice and Mystics minis). Don't be shy people, join in on a game that has been playtested to perfection!!

At least there is still hope! Jason just posted that if we are able to close the gap in the next few days...female zombies could be a reality!! Also those who do jump in (by going to the 8th summit website) will actually get a Kickstarter edition of the game!!....pretty awesome deal.

Count me as a late arriver to the party. I just placed a Die Harder order on the 8th Summit site. I can't read the backers-only updates on KS, but I believe the female zombies are now included, right?
