Yes, I agree, if it were a normal game. However, I look at this like a 20th anniversary edition, and if that were the case, I think that's fine. I haven't played the originally unfortunately, but this looks and sounds the like the Tomorrow has wanted to be. Think I might be in for this...

I own the original and just about all the expansions. It is an okay game, but I own it probably more out of nostalgia than out of a love of playing the game. I cracked out my copy a few months ago with some of my gamer buddies and it really didn't stand up to the test of time. Fun for a bunch of 14 or 15 year olds with itchy nuclear trigger fingers, but truly pales in the face of modern Euros and FFG Ameritrash.

I have never played this game but do enjoy a light strategy which this seems to be, that said there is no way I would drop $150 plus $25 to ship to me on this game. Ikusa cost £55.00 when I bought it recently and I don't see twice the value in this KS.

My intention isn't to insult the OP, just to highlight my concern over your pricing. I appreciate that KS isn't a pre-order and you are paying to support the game but this looks like a cash grab, specially considering the previously failed KS was $70 for the game.

Just my opinion and once again Im not trying to get anyone's back up

I hear you. Do you think we should try to offer a cheaper no frills version?

I think so. I would like to back this game, I would like to play this game. I don't have the spare time to assemble a print and play version, and I don't have the spare money to buy this version.

That's me. I can't speak for others, though.

I was happy with the price for the components involved. This comes close to the price that I backed a lot of other kickstarters at.

I'm not sure if it's wise to offer a no frills version. While it may be nice that you can appeal to both sides, your efforts will be split between 2 different versions of the game. I don't know too much about the production side of things, but from what Jamey of Stonemiar Games said on his blog (http://stonemaiergames.com/kickstarter/, I don't have the exact one, but I recalled reading it somewhere), having multiple versions of a game can be a real headache. He had 3 versions of his game and it sounded like it was a pain in the ass for him to do.

Also, by have 2 products, you will have a lower print run for each no? Customers would be split between those two products. Wouldn't that drive up the price for both products/increase the total needed to fund the project?

Again, I don't have any idea of what goes on behind the scenes,but these are just some questions that popped into my head.

There's also the issue that the PnP is $35(!), down from the original asking price of $40.

Lets see ..

- the starting price is far too high
- its not International (EU) shipping friendly
- you have to pay extra for the unlocked stretch goal expansion

Oh well, nevermind then. surprise whistle

More like the 30th anniversary!

I paid a lot of money for my old Supremacy set and expansions - far more than $150! I recently paid over $200 for Axis & Allies Global. We're not giving our money to a big company like Hasbro. These are hard working die hard Supremacy fans doing what all die hard Supremacy fans have dreamed of for years - reviving the game and fixing the bugs. How much of this dough do you think is actually being pocketed as profit? Probably less than is deserved.

To me this was a snap buy (and I'm a working man from Eastern Canada). Kick-start is now 200% funded, so I'm not the only one!

I like the white oceans. They do what Supremacy's style did in the eighties - they make the game look and feel fresh, distinct, almost eccentric.
