Just curious to know how much interest there is from non-backers of the TS KS. Many are aware of the quality (based on pictures) of this CE and there are a couple people who are not satisfied with the overall product.

However, it is possible that the complaints may just be coming from a few people, but in order to know if this is true, I am just wanting to know how many of you would be willing to buy a CE from one of the backers who is willing to sell it. Apparently, there is a line of people waiting to get extra copies of the CE.

I think it retails for $200.

I know that, based on what I've seen, my copy looks headed for the marketplace.

After the pics, I'm glad I didn't buy a copy...But I didn't really trust GMT to come up with an awesome graphic layout ... especially when they posted no mock ups during the kickstarter... Make great games yes. Make them look pretty... not so much...

My Deluxe edition is presold. It might be too early to say for sure, but I think I will try to sell the CE instead. I am not really convinced by the pictures.

I'm very happy I didn't back this. No discernible improvement over the Deluxe version except for the wooden box, and seems to be outright worse in key aspects (graphic design, control cubes).

I guess I'll be the first vote of confirmation that I, even despite some of the graphic choices, would still love to have a copy of the CE.

So it looks like you're the only one so far. I'd be happy to sell you my copy. Name your price.

I'm still keeping mine. My big disappointment is with the wooden markers. I was hoping for embossed or laser-etched instead of stickers.

Agreed, Pete. If these wooden blocks make this a CE, then does that mean that every Columbia game is a CE? They all have wooden blocks.

What a terrible idea. Why break a good thing and make it fiddly?

I don't think it looks that bad. I'd be willing to trade my Deluxe edition and throw in a few bucks...

I wouldn't get it at their retail price, but if a backer wanted $150, I'd pick it up. My deluxe board came apart, and I'd be playing it quite a bit anyhow.

I had a bit of no-buyer-remorse on not getting the CE, but after the latest pictures, I'm weapons grade meh on their production. It's not bad (and the new card backs are beautiful), but it's not worth $130... (never mind $200...)

My reasoning, and it's purely my own situation, is that there are some games that I like enough to be fine with spending some cash on to make them a little better and I don't have a great copy in our circle of friends currently. I have upgraded copies of other games in the last in a DIY way and if I don't like the cubes et al, I don't mind doing it again for this. That said, I'd be a little more hesitant except our group is using an old edition with worn paper maps and plexi and stuff, just haven't gotten to working on TS since I knew this was coming. It's very functional, but a far cry from what most are using now so I'm less bothered by some of the short comings.

And yes, I think I'm taken care of now.

I want a copy, but mostly for collecting purposes. If someone wants to get rid of theirs, send me a message.

Boy it is really hard to judge the supply-demand ratio on this one! Anyway, I'm interested in a copy of the CE if any backers are ready to jump ship. GM me.

Thanks,
Joe

Edit: I was able to get one!

Evidently, some people think the deluxe edition is better than the CE. So as a service to the community, I would be more than happy to trade my unpunched Deluxe edition for a CE.

Of course there won't be any takers because of the 2nd market difference, but I think many people are over reacting here.

I want to sell my CE edition.
I offer the exchange. You sending me gift voucher from philibertnet.com on 140€(~160$), and I change delivery address in my pledge to yours(free shipping all around the world). So you will get CE when GMT start to send it. GM me if you are interested.


Sold
