In 1775, there was a Treaty board where you placed each treaty card that was played. I assume this is the same.

Ha! Academy games think they can sucker me into buying a THIRD game on a system I think is one of the most innovative resulting in games that are fast but with many replays giving numerous hours of fun?

How stupid do they think I am???

Hi guys

I thought I read somewhere that the 879: Vikings game would be kick started and that this game (1754) would be added as a stretch goal?

Is that correct or should I pre-order this game now direct with academy and then see what happens with 879?

Love this game system.

It is a decal with artwork from the game with a whitespace at the bottom where the designers autograph it.

A few online retailers have November/December listed for a projected release, but BGG lists 2017. Any news if this will be coming out this year or not?

1754 and 879 will be printed at the same time, however, as Nigel pointed out, only 879 will have a Kickstarter campaign.

Expecting the Kickstarter to start within the next couple months, which sadly will mean the product won't be on shelves until early 2017.

I just read this in the forms for 879: Vikings. I took it as since they will both be released around the same time they will have a pledge or add-on to include 1754: Conquest.

That's what i thought as well. Being a novice at kickstarter and being in Australia delivery is very expensive. So would i be better to wait for 879 get the stretch goal and get both at the same time. Possibly with cheaper delivery? Or are delivery costs the same so just preorder 1754 and Kickstart 879.

You mean a purchase level, right? I can't imagine they'll offer a $60 stretch goal.

I have the same concerns as Nigel... but having just looked at Amazon's price, it is not an option.

As an owner of 1775 and 1812, I know this game is mechanically similar (movement cards, dice effects, etc.), except for presumably certain rules and some game-unique card text. That said, Academy does not show enough info to entice gamers unfamiliar with this game.

The Academy website offers these clues:

The latest entry in the series introduces:

*New 'Forts' mechanics which allow defenders an opportunity to negate hits in battle.

*A new muster system for Native American forces which makes strategic alliances more dynamic and game changing.

*New Harbor regions that govern regional reinforcements from British and French Regular troops.

The website also notes a "Native Alliance Expansion". Does that mean there will be an expansion for this game needed to add a Native American faction? I must be misreading something here.

I saw that as well when I pre-ordered awhile back. My assumption was that it was included in the game. I could be incorrect.... but it seems from the way the game is listed it would be.
