The last few updates have shown some nice looking prototypes, but have unfortunately contained the bad news that they are behind schedule, and over budget.

I'm awaiting its release as well, but worried the cost will be higher than the original estimate. Really wish I would have just added it to my original Small World 2 pledge.

The kickstarter said $400, but the updates have said that the production is costing more than they thought, so I don't know if $400 will still be the price.

Ouch, we're getting into War of the Ring deluxe edition territory! I wish I had ordered that one when it was available...

There was a Kickstarter for this?
I haven't seen it. I'm sorry I missed it.

It was part of the kickstarter for the small world 2 digital game.

I pledged for other stuff, but didn't spring for the designers edition. I've been regretting it ever since.

Thanks for the information.
That's why I didn't see it, then...
I hardly look at video games.

But will they have to honour the kickstarted price for backers?

I never heard any news about a kickstarter campaign for this...are people referring to a different crowd funding platform? The only one I could find on kickstarter is a digital edition.

It was part of the campaign for Small World 2 (the digital edition you found). The Designer Edition was one of the add-on pledges.

Unfortunately for them, yes they must. It is part of Kickstarter's legal stuff that backers receive what they paid for, for the price they paid for it. While the can ask for more money, they can't demand more money. Just as they can include more than originally offered/announced, but they can't include less than promised.

What they can do, however, is make the retail price more than the $400 stated somewhere in the campaign. As stated by snowren, it will probably cost more simply because production is taking way more time and funds than Days of Wonder originally anticipated.

Yeah, I read somewhere that the "leftover" copies will sell for over 400 Euros. Yikes...

This item really deserves its own Kickstarter.

No wonder many of us missed the opportunity, hiding as it was, behind a campaign for a digital game.
