So, does this mean they have resolved issues with Donald?

I guess I'm asking, Hey Donald X., are you good with Queen, can I back this KS without feeling guilty, or is this one going to fall apart like the first one did?

I threw in a dollar to raise this topic on the KS comments.

Without a statement directly from Donald X., this Kickstarter should certainly be avoided (or badgered).

I would love to know that as well, although personally I am not going to back anyway because I already have the extra Queenie expansions so there is zero incentive for me to back. All I am doing if I back is buying the expansion at MSRP and getting it at the same time the stores are.

With the original, I would have backed for everything, but since then I have bought everything, so I'm in the same boat as you!

I won't Kickstarter (never have before), but I hope this does mean that they've worked out the contractual issues (and DXV got paid!) so that this can make it to retail.

Well, this was posted as an update to the Escape Big Box kickstater:
Quote:
We have found an agreement with Donald X. Vaccarino to publish the third boxed expansion for Kingdom Builder – Marshlands. Now, we have launched the new Kickstarter campaign for Kingdom Builder – Marshlands, by Donald X. Vaccarino.

So it appears they have a deal with DXV.

Still, will probably just get this when it comes out via retail.

In the comments now Queen has stated that the MSRP will be $40. So given the typical Coolstuffinc discount and $8 shipping the price comes out to about $35. So if I back now or wait for the store I will be paying essentially the same price.

Here's hoping they start adding pledge levels to get some extras beyond the game and queenies, like an empty big box.

People still pay for shipping? : P

I have in fact signed a new contract with Queen for the 3rd and 4th KB expansions, that Addresses Some Issues. So I expect they will both come out although the future is as always unknowable.

And they told me the Marshlands kickstarter would be happening soon and then that it would be today and here it is.

Any clue what language this expansion is in? Is it English only? In that case, I'll definitely pass as that doesn't really fit in with my Big Box (I use the Dutch cards from that).

Good luck with getting a Queen KS game the same time as retail, the retail stores tend to have it earlier; you've been warned.

I too was looking forward for a pledge level which would include an empty big box like last time.

Do you guys have any idea if the components of this expansion would fit in a big box?

They added to the FAQ section that it will indeed fit in the Big Box box with everything else

How do they not have a pledge level for people who bought the big box at retail? Seems ridiculous. (one that comes with the Island, and Marshlands, but nothing else)

It was going to be $60 Canadian, paid in January, to get just the retail expansion delivered in July.

...

I pledged briefly, but got better.

You could just buy the Island here, then pledge for Marshlands if you wanted. http://boardgamegeekstore.com/products/kingdom-builder-queen...

Everything so far (without Marshlands) fits in the original box for the base game! But I think Marshlands will end that for me.

I have everything in the original box with the expansion boxes tossed. Marshlands will be tough to fit in.

I'm attracted to the differently shaped huts but it isn't going to happen for me.

They said Marshland components will fit inside the big box

Donald X said there is a 4th expansion that may come in the future so who knows if that one would also fit in the big box

I'm all for big boxes, but am a bit puzzled why there often is an new expansion released after the big box.

I'm glad this is coming again, but even more glad that Donald is happy with the new contract. thumbsup

I might wait until the retail edition is out since I don't feel a burning need for the custom wooden pieces, but I'm sure I'll buy it eventually.

I am very tempted to back this one. But the last time I preordered a nomads from queen it was in stores a couple weeks before I got my copy and queen never responded to my emails.
So I will just wait.
