Thanks for sharing all the info Mikolaj! Enjoyed listening to you.

I do want to clarify one thing... we will offer 3 (not 4) new Abductor Packs as part of the Crime Wave KS.

Was not interested in the theme at first. But the more I learn about this game the more awesome it sounds. Looking forward to the Kickstarter.

This may be the first no-brainer KS project I've seen.

Really looking forward for it

As a 2nd printing backer of the original i only hope that it will be this time priced so that its actually cheaper to back it in kickstarter than to buy it online cheaper (it was bit disappointing to find it so at the time i got my package)...

People tend to forget that there are extras that come with KS and there is a cost AND added value to that. The Negotiator Cards alone added quite a bit of value. But totally understand if folks want to wait and get the game only without all the extras later.

Which hour the campaign will exactly start ? There is early bird available ? Could we have the bundle with the hostage negociator AND crime waves ?

This is now live.

No early bird. Yes you can get the original, but only if you go all in. Otherwise we encourage you to pick it up as the 3rd printing will hit distribution in the next week or 2.

Any chance of having the negotiator packs as add ons? I already own the first 4 abductor packs and thus would not need the "Captain" pledge.

Agreed, I own all previous Abductor packs and the Negotiator Series 1, but not Series 2. I would like to add "Series 2" only to the $50 level. Will that be possible?

Per comments on the KS page, no add-ons. But they'll be available at a later date to purchase separately.

What is a Negotiator Series?

Ahh - I see it now: on the Chief and Crisis Commander levels.

I wonder why they aren't available unless getting EVERYTHING.

Guess we will have to wait to throw more money at VRG when it goes up on their site...

UPDATE: As I suspected, AJ has confirmed that these are not a part of the current Kickstarter due to fulfillment simplicity. He is doing his best to keep shipping cost low and the easier it is (less a la carte) the cheaper and faster the content can be sent out. Makes sense.

I look forward to getting these later...

I also would be interested in separate options, since I have everything from the first KS except for Series pack 1.

Not to be a downer or anyting.. but what's up with the costs on this one? From what I can tell the 2nd print kick price was $20 and free shipping in the US. This one comes in at $35 and $10 for shipping making it more than twice the cost. It's a bigger box and a few more cards and bits, at least looking at the quick breakdowns on the KS pages but that doesn't seem to justify the increase... is there more to this package that I'm missing or something?

Larger box = larger shipping costs! There is just no way around that. Plus with extra tokens and dividers/insert and more cards it costs more to produce. Then there is also inflation. Given the awesomeness of the game and the extent of the replayability though I would venture to say it is worth it.

So for those of us who don't have HN but want it, we can't choose the $35 level and add on the base game? We have to go in at $90 for the whole shooting match?
