I asked CMON the following question, through the Season 3 KS:

Quote:
Will there be a way for Season 2 backers who are not backing Season 3 to get the reprinted promo dashboards?


and got the following reply:

Quote:
We are still in the process of trying to figure out a solution to reprint promo dashboards for the Season 2 game.


So, whilst they clearly don't have a definite solution to the Dashboard reprint issue just yet, it is also clear that they are working on a solution for people that backed Season 2 but are not backing Season 3.

I noticed that the purple box of dashboards says it has a retail value of $75. I think $75 is ridiculous for people who already own the misprints, but at least it implies it's an item that can be purchased retail rather than a kickstarter exclusive.



*edit* Oops, just noticed it also says "kickstarter exclusive." I'm not sure how something can be both retail and exclusive...

Their solution could still end up being "print your own."

Yeah, this is pretty similar to the response they gave me via email months ago, when the misprints first came to light:

"[...] we are keeping in mind our Season 2 backers that would like to just receive the cards, and are looking into options that will allow as many of our Season 2 backers to have access to reprinted cards as possible."

What was that, 4 months ago? Surely it can't take that long to figure something out. It only took them 6 months to create, print, ship and start delivering Season 2 wave 1.

Yeah, is the exact same e-mail that I got from them last week as well. They clearly have a copy & paste response for it. It could mean they're going to sort something out, or it could mean that post S3 Kickstarter they tell S2 backers to do one (which is what my money is on!). I had a similarly generic reply to my request about what was happening with Relic Knights (it's being packed, it'll come when it comes basically).

The picture says KS exclusive, but can get it at retail later - I think the exclusive refers to the color "purple". The storage properly comes in more common Zombicide colors!

Seriously, what the heck is wrong with us? In the "real world" if someone asked you to pay that much for so little, you'd punch them in the face.

But in the gaming world? Seems perfectly reasonable.


We're fine with it right now since no one is actually paying $75 for it. If it actually hits stores with a $75 price tag everyone will just laugh.

They have more chance of me sucking their nuts than forking over $75 for that.

Plenty of folks getting multiple copies will be selling their extra dashboards on ebay... I'm sure they won't sell for $75 on ebay, don't worry.

Yes, only gamers pay insane amounts of money for little bits of cardboard in plastic boxes: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?type=4&cam...

Ya know, if it does have an MSRP of $75, why not just drop the $100 and get all the new toys (sans optionals and AN)?

At that price you could probably sell off the KS exclusive figs, take a profit, and still have your boards?

It doesn't have a 'real' MSRP of $75, CMON have set it at a ridiculously high level in order to tempt people on board to the new KS as you suggest. No idiot in their right mind would pay $75 for that.
