I think that I read some place that it will be on kickstarter in May.


The publisher is Eagle Gryphon, so I see no reason for it to not be available in the US.

You can read a very rough draft at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gRNSppe2_ayyXlFi8Mggql1s.... Let me know if that link doesn't work. You should not need a Google account to view the document. And let me know if you (or anyone) has any questions about the rules. I'm going to finish up the rules by the end of February.

And it will be available in the US!

Rules look solid. Can't wait to get my hands on this one. Looks like lots of good smelly fun.

Vary excited about this - the first wombat-themed boardgame I can think of since the very obscure Watch Out Wombat.

Matt, any more news on the Kickstarter effort?

I had the opportunity to play a prototype of this last night. Loved it. Very fun game with good strategy but still family friendly. I love the artwork as well.

I think the replayabilty will be high with the board being randomly generated, plus there were a few variants we didn't play. At first I thought it would be to light but as we got deeper into the game I found out it wasn't going to be as easy as I thought it was. The game conspired against me so I ended up losing even though I had a slight lead at the near the end.

I for one will be looking to back the game when it hits Kickstarter, and look forward to getting my copy when it comes out.

Thank you so much! It really means a lot to me that you enjoyed the game. I think you'll like playing with the boulders variant (if you didn't play with those). I can't wait until May 15th.

We played a basic game, no boulders and no poop eating by the Dingo. I'm very intereseted to try those out.

Is this still the target date?

I noticed that this is also the end date for Xenon Profiteer, also from EGG.

I think we're still on target for that date. I don't know if the new/old rule for getting Kickstarter projects approved will affect that date or not.
