I am amazed at the number of free stretch goals they have added to this campaign (for outlaw sweet spot and above). Every other mini boardgame campaign I have backed has been a lot less generous with the majority being paid addons. I am surprised they haven't have been able to increase the spacing within stretch goals to $25k so far. This xxl just sweetens the deal even more.

Am I missing something? What's the gameplay element of this thing? It's a cool figure and all, but what does it do to the game? Maybe I missed an update or a comment.

Don't you just love that you hear about this stretch goal on BBG rather than receiving an official update from the company running the project?

At night it doubles the value of your worker cubes.

Really? Like during a night phase of the game? And where do worker cubes come into play?

They are working on an update at the moment. They just didn't want to delay the reveal for those who were waiting. They will also be adding some new addons today so they may be waiting on the final art for that before sending it out.

lol he was messing with you. no worker cubes in this game, and i dont believe there is a night phase although i could be wrong there.

he is basicly an enemy you can fight. shows up randomly from a deck of cards but i wouldnt be surprised if there was a mission to find and kill him too.

having said that back to the figure OMG he is awsome. cant wait to get this game!!!

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I'm guessing by his size he's going to be one tough fight! I love the tough fights...especially if you're in a campaign mode and the boss could wipe you (or everyone) out. Great risk, greater reward. cool

I'm surprised they didn't preempt such a significant goal with an update. Most of the updates are pretty short so they cannot possibly to vast lengths of time to write.

Well we have our update. Such detail must have taken 10, maybe 15 minutes to write!

Given that all the stretch goals and addons were preplanned (they've said so), presumably the text is pre-written for these?

Still no rules or gameplay evidence. If it was $50, expecting people to take a punt is reasonable. I don't think it is at the levels we're looking at.
