Any idea whether there will be a tier for people to pick up Devastation, etc., along with this?

There IS an upgrade kit already, included in the BattleCon Devastation Extended Edition, that patches the First Edition cards.

I have no insider knowledge or anything but my guess is yes, he will offer Devastation for sale along with it. I say this because A) they offered it for sale along with the last KS they did as well and B) this is the perfect opportunity to sell a bunch of copies and I can't imagine them passing it up.

Damn damn son of a bitch damn. I just bought War a couple weeks ago. Assuming the price isn't ridiculous, I'll probably get this if for no other reason than new art.

I have been lucky to play with my daughter until my schedule clears up and I can catch up with a gaming group again.

Don't feel bad man. I've been hunting the original down for months just so that I could have the artwork from the artist who won't be with this release and the few extra kickstarter characters. I'm sure the rerelease will be just as special in its own way!

Ahhhhh. I remember playing this game on iOS with my brother and we really enjoyed it since we both like fighting games, and I just finally found a Canadian retailer with a decent price tag for Devastation of the Indines.

As I understand it, they're standalone and I could add the new War of Indines reprint after right? I'm just not sure whether I should wait for this Kickstarter and THEN fulfillment before I get to play it!

Any recommendations as to whether I should wait for the Kickstarter or just grab Devastation and then add this after?

I'd go for the second options. The wait will kill you.
Instead of waiting for both games to arrive you will have time to enjoy Devastation and then dive into all "new" characters coming with War.

The Level 99 website has copies of War of Indines in stock (that's where I got my copy just a couple weeks ago).

edit: the art in War sucks! That's a horrible reason to want to get the original version.

Oh, i don't know about that. some of the illustrations are pretty good. Hepzibah and Luc look a lot better in the original than they do in the updated version, and Cadenza looks equally crappy in both lol.

If you get Devastation, you might consider getting it directly from lvl99games. They will send promo characters with it. If you get it from elsewhere, you don't get the promo characters.

If you can wait even longer, I'm sure the promo characters will also be listed and included in the kickstarter...

Yeah that's a good way of putting it. I just got the PnP Demo ready. Tomorrow we're going to give it a spin to see how it feels on the actual tabletop and that'll probably seal it.

That's a good point the difference between the price where I found it and level99 is only 20$ but unfortunately I just checked and it says 46$ in shipping to Canada from level99 so it's a bit out of my reach (it is an 8lb box though!).

Hopefully they give an option to pledge for the promo characters in the reprint for War kickstarter.

The promos are not very exciting though. A couple of them are very, very casual. Just saying in case this is bothering you due to price. I actually don't play with any of them, since they don't match the vibe and coolness of the official cast.

Mileage may vary, of course.

That's very true. The only one I like is Claus and Wynnhall.

Correct. Devastation and War both stand alone just fine.

You have your reason for wanting games and I have mine. Everyone is allowed their own opinion.
