Is there a retail version of this box coming? I'd prefer to pick this up instead of scrounging for little expansions.

During the Kickstarter they said that it was a limited run and retail wasn't assured. My guess is some locations might get a few copies but there won't be very many, unless they sell very well.

It is over, but it's not due until 2016. You might try contacting the organizers directly for extra copies. I've had some success doing that with other projects.

It was 125 USD, very pricey. I find game salute amusing with their constant distribution kickstarter. I've never seen something so risk averse masquerading as a business, limit your sales to a portion in order to guaranty it all moves? Not all potential buyers will jump at the gimmick.

Yikes! With the exchange rate that puts it well out of my price range.

Just a heads up to anyone looking to get in on this post KS like I was, when I contacted michael@gamesalute.com to inquire about a late pledge/pre-order he told me it would be $175 plus $14 shipping now.

I was under the impression that this game was already pretty overpriced for the component count/quality from a different thread I had come across. Looks to me like all the components that make up the big box can be obtained on Amazon for less than this new preorder price that I was given & I'm not sure there is anything in/about the BB that makes it worth it. Anyone with some hands on experience of this game care to comment on this to sway me one way or another?

The game is fun but not ~$200 fun.

Unfortunately I came upon KS after this project, so I missed out. I've contacted Game Salute about extra prints and was informed that they are out.
If anyone will be receiving an extra copy that they wish to sell, please contact me. I work with a group of great people who volunteer our time and games to expand the betterment of our hobby. Out of the 100's of games we have collectively, Alien Frontiers doesn't seem to be one, and I don't know why?!



Thank you

At this point you might be better off buying the base game and expansions separately. Who knows when this KS will fulfill.

Over a year they have had all that kickstarter money, and now we get the update that not only are they a month late, but they haven't even bothered to try to get the plastic components printed. On top of that they don't even know where to go to have these components made.

Hilarious.
