So, no Kickstarter? I ask this to be sure I'll not lose a KS campaign with additional material and rewards in the future ...

kinda glad to see the pre-order on the game salute store, now I finally have no excuse not to buy the Alien Frontiers Upgrade Pack and Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule, too bad SOS Titanic is out of stock and there are no grey/pink Alien Frontiers plastic colonies in existence or I would have added those too

Phew, I'll have to contemplate that postage fee...

No chance to have this shipped from elsewhere?

They ship outside of the US, but pricing is amazingly high. I was excited to see this one going up. Rushed to pre-order until I saw the price they asked to ship to canada. 21$! That like the price of the game alone. They really don't care about shipping outside of the US or need to find better shipping solution.

Myself, I a bit turn off by this but I might go with it, have it ship at my company US location and get them to ship it back to me. I had to do that a few times and it's amazing how they charge 20$ to ship to canada when my US location can do the same for like 7$.

Also another disappointment, they said in the past that they would include an option to get rocket dice version for this expansion. Well this is not part of the pre-order. I guess the amazing blunder that are the rocket dice themselves, running about 1 year late since he best estimate is now end of the year when it was supposed to ship last November might be a reason why.

I'll have to think about it since Game Salute is still involved. Every one of their games that I have backed on Kickstarter has been tremendously late including Alien Frontiers: Faction Pack #2, Alien Frontiers: Faction Pack #3 & Alien Frontiers: Faction Pack #4.

It's not just that they were late (that can happen to any project), but how they are late. After so many projects I think they should be better able to estimate how long production should take. Things like artwork and play testing (Storm Hollow: A Storyboard Game!) should have been done prior to launching the Kickstarter campaign. Goblins Drool, Fairies Rule! was 6 months late and it only has 20 cards!

I'm hesitant to back or preorder their products and will likely wait for it to be available at my FLGS instead.

This expansion comes with orange components for a possible 5th player. (Yay!)

But, the front page lists it for up to 6 players. Sooo, without getting further bits, I guess 6 ain't happenin?

You can play 6 players when you combine Outer Belt with Factions, and from the times I have played 6-player games, this is a must!

What's "Alien Frontiers Booster Pack #6"? Saw that mentioned in the rulebook.

I know I missed one promo pack since I was out of the country when the KS project was going. So maybe those cards are in there?

The Outer Belt board is doubled sided. The flip side uses the rocket dice ports.

Originally the game was listed as 3 to 6 players and this has been changed to 2 to 6. Does this mean it has been play tested and found to be enjoyable with just two players?

David, Alien Frontiers has always been playable as two to six players. Outer Belt also used the same scaling system and can be used in a two-player game just fine.

About US$30 to ship to Australia....shake

What are the chances of local stores (outside the US) getting these promo packs for customers who don't want to pay exorbitant shipping costs?

He mentioned Dec, but the website said Nov, so not sure.

I assume they must be printing now or close to printing to get it done by then.
