Hi everyone!

To help fund the new Grail Games edition of Guns & Steel, a new Kickstarter campaign has just launched. You can check it out at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1986861668/guns-and-ste...

The Grail Games edition is to be sold in SE Asia and Oceania exclusively, but Moaideas Game Design is working alongside us and has provided some copies of the game for Essen pick-up and other international backers.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Thanks for your support
David

That's probably due to exchange rates fluctuating. It was the same cost when we worked the campaign out You never know with this crazy Australian dollar

Yes it is
Both editions will be printed together, so the cards will be identical. The difference is that Grail's logo is on the box, and spelling of some words are changed in the rule book.

I confused. You are only selling 150 copies? I don't see an option for me to get the game delivered to the USA? That pledge seems to be sold out.

Moaideas only has a limited number of copies available for this campaign. Remember this is to fund the Oceania/SE Asia version of the game. If you lived there, more copies are available.

And more copies will be available for purchase in the West later in the year?

Ah... was going to get it from Essen, but if the Australian version comes with Australian spelling that would save me from translating the rule book!

SE Asia does not include Hong Kong? I cannot select Hong Kong when I was gonna pledge it.

Or what can I do if I want a copy shipping to Hong Kong?

No, you'll get the Moaideas edition. Their rulebook is almost identical and in perfect english :)

Just to clarify, David, since this seems to be a common point of confusion:

Will G&S be widely available through retailers to Europe/North America? Thanks

Before you get too mad, it sounds as if the kickstarter is for a version with alternate spellings. The English version may be just going straight into mass production. Let's just hear what the publisher has to say.

Read the campaign and you will see - this is a campaign to fund the Oceania and SE Asia edition of the game. We do not have the rights to sell the game anywhere else.
There are 150 copies for international backers, provided by the original publisher. This number was determined in consultation with their future publishers/distribution partners in the US/Europe etc.
The campaign is on Kickstarter Australia as Grail Games is an Australian company.

Campaign update #2 has a link to where you can order the game direct fron the original publisher Moaideas. Or, you can wait for it to possibly be released in your region at a later date.

Thanks for checking out the game.

I just grabbed one of the 150 copies for the rest of the world (including USA) on Kickstarter. I had been regularly checking to see if someone dropped their pledge and jumped on it when one popped up. Be patient and check - I'm sure it will happen a few more times.
