Background: My kickstarter copy was missing the space leeches. Stronghold Games will happily fix things for me, but their replacement part stock won't be in for 3-4 weeks, since they sent out all the games to backers as quickly as they could, and have nothing left. NO worries, I know they will fix me up.

Problem: My gaming group runs a boardgaming convention that is happening next weekend, and I was hoping to demo and play SC:AM, but will find the lack of leeches lessening my leisurely lesson and leave me longing for lost ...ummm leeches. (I would use proxies like beads or paper scraps, but in demoing the game, I would like to give the full effect.)

Solution: Someone who got a painted set of minis, and isn't using their non-painted leeches, could loan me theirs. I would ship my replacements to them (or their originals back if they can tell the difference) in 3-4 weeks after stronghold finishes their grueling plastic leech breeding program.

Or,

You may have to settle with lessening your leisurely lesson by simply sticking with the scenarios that don't use the leeches, or by simply omitting the leeches for those scenarios that call for a random draw.

On the outside looking in, it seems to me that your demonstration of the game will be just as effective, for the purpose, sans leeches.

Thanks! PM sent!

(You saved me from serious consideration of attacking some bugles with a can of spray lacquer...)

I know I could use beads or cubes as a proxy, or avoid leeches altogether, but this is a pulpy retro space game. You have to have that visual POP of the minis to really send the theme home.
