I don't think I've ever seen a higher quality board game product in my life. Every single component looks and feels amazing. It's so astoundingly good, I'm 100% satisfied with the purchase before even playing my first game. Bravo Jamie and Jakub!

I agree. The whole presentation is of very high quality on a Kickstarter that completed well ahead of schedule. It's probably been the best Kickstarter experience that I have had so far. I can't wait to play it this weekend!

I could technically play around with the solo rules, but I promised my friends we would all play for the first time together.

You kept me in suspense with the ellipses in the subject line.

The solo is awesome also. But you don't want solo to be your first game witht
This one, I played solo first and I spent more time trying to understand how the automa performs a move than playing my own turn. 3 solos later its super easy and intuitive, but its not an ideal first learning experience.

I do have one minor complaint for Jamie.

Fulfilling KS orders at least a month early is causing me problems. I promised my wife I would not order any games in July and.............

Yeah, she intercepted the package. I had to explain that the nefarious Jamie Stegmaier had messed up and completed this project far in advance. She replied that no KS projects arrive early.

I don't think I'll be sleeping on the couch, but come on, in the future, could you please fulfill these projects 6 months to 2-years later like normal KS???????

Just move to a different country, I do not have mine yet, still I assume it will hit by July, so your wife would still be mad. Enjoy the couch or does the box tease you to not sleep in play

I know what you mean, my copy was at the door when I got home last night. The art, the components, everything is just absolutely stunning. I have the collectors edition and it's just wonderful on the table. The upgraded components just make me want to pick up more of Jamie's component chests. Unfortunately; I had some minor box damage which is heartbreaking given the beauty of the box itself, but is what it is I guess.

When my games arrive with box damage I burn them immediately and order new ones. How are you people so cool about crinkles?

My copy of Conflict of Heroes arrived with such a damaged box in one corner that it could barely be opened and the corner actually had to be ripped to clear the top and fully open. I was so pissed, but so eager to play that I just dealt with it. The box now stares at me from its shelf and I hate it so, so much.

Listen...everything was Spot ON with Scythe!

I received my collectors edition Kickstarter copy yesterday and had a blast teaching this game to some friends. What an experience!

This was my very first Kickstarter backed game...wow! From the moment I backed the project, to almost weekly updates with production pictures, to a website and link to watch the shipment cross the Pacific Ocean, to receiving my UPS shipping notice from Funagain, to Scythe's arrival at my door, to unboxing and my first game set up...wow!

Simply flawless.

Thank you Jamey and thank you Jakub!
