As far as I understand it, just the "Scythe" text-logo will be that way.

We won't lose any of the box art. It's going to make it look more brilliant by highlighting elements, such as the title. From my understanding, it is similar to what was done for the Between Two Cities cover below. Take a look at the gold outlining. I just got my copy of this and it looks amazing!

May they turn orange in hue, and may their heads fall off at an awkward moment.

They were probably running out of ideas...

"We need something quick! Someone speak up!"

"Um... foil box top!"

"YEAH!"

(I feel slightly dirty making this, because the foil lettering will be a nice touch, and I'm cool with the way Jamey is running this... All in good fun, right? )

The expansions aren't made yet. Can't release something that hasn't been made.

Adding the expansions would delay the project by months and since they're not made yet we can't know for sure which and how many components will be included and thus we don't know the cost.

Finally, economies of scale won't make enough of an additional difference to cover the cost of adding the expansion.

Not sure if you were trying to say something here but sure. I'm there everyday anyway.

*checks*

Yep. There it is. I have comments there and it also says I'm backer #26.

Was there something you wanted me to see there that I haven't already seen?

All the stretch goals, thus far, were planned well in advance of the campaign. Any of the stretch goals related to game play have been thoroughly playtested. The foil was used in previously for the Between Two Cities Special Edition packaging to great effect and was not an afterthought for the Scythe campaign.

They were referring to "Can't release something that hasn't been made" statement, which is essentially what Kickstarting a product is doing.

I ma wondering if there will be any stretch goal that adds more mechas... I've seen more designs on the art and it would be realy cool having some more variety on that!
