So every sin box has 3 dice surprise

That means you would get 28 Sin dice and 10 Hero dice with the base purchase...

Wow this is just what I wanted to see prior to pledging on massive darkness.
Thanks for posting this, it's restored my confidence back with cmon as to be honest their customer service is really hard to get hold of and I was losing confidence in them.

Really? It sours me on Massive Darkness even more; look at how much less we're getting compared to the funding amounts.

That's what I was going to say: on every consecutive CMoN campaign, the distance between stretch goals is getting bigger and bigger

And, we are comparing a completed campaign to one that isn't 1/3 of the way through.

Soooooo much better to pledge this one than buy at retail.

Man, I seriously had forgotten just the sheer volume of minis in the package. That shipping box is going to be insane. Pity they didn't fix Augustine.

Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.

I saw him in person and he is like the very first image we saw from him on the kickstarter. He has a big neck for sure, but big as that stretched picture.

Your actually getting more minis in Massive Darkness then you did in the others. 112 figures in the others (no add-ons) compared to currently 121 in Massive darkness

Breaking down the numbers:

In Massive darkness 10 are Kickstarter exclusive, The Others had 8.

In MD 11 are characters, The Others has 19

In MD 16 are big figures, The Others has 14 (the 7 sins, 5 from Hell Club (i'm pushing it there), the Mayor & Nicholas)

For variation, MD has 44 different figures, while the Others has 76.

I'll take variation and original gameplay over quantity of plastic any time...
MD does make me want to pledge, The Others I HAD TO pledge.

MD looks great of course but it is just YET ANOTHER DUNGEONCRAWLER and we've had tons of these lately, in all forms and shapes. Whereas The Others offers something a tiny bit more original, doesn't it?

Regardless of whether it's good or not; this is my most anticipated game of the year.

From the first moment I saw The Others; I was really excited about the concept of it.

I have liked most of what Eric Lang has put out there so am really happy this is on target.

July can't come soon enough .

The Others was a must pledge for me as well, while for Massive Darkness I've pledged, but apart from Heroquest, Space Crusade and Warhammer Quest (which I'm currently trying to buy the missing pieces for) I don't have a dungeon crawler. Got Conan on kickstarter coming at some point???, but Massive Darkness hopefully provides that easy play GM'less game. I was close to backing folklore, but decided it was to fiddly for my gaming group, got D&D for the fiddly dungeon crawl already.

One thing I would like Massive Darkness to copy from the Others is the variation/poses of models for the minions, The Others would have 6 minions with 3 different poses, while Massive Darkness have 10 minions and no different poses.
