Anyone know if all the kickstarter stuff for Bloodrage will eventually make it into stores? Primarily, the extra miniatures?

Thanks.

They never will. However you can usually pick them up at conventions by getting tickets from CMON. Basicaly you get a ticket for every $25 spent or sometimes from other stuff. Most figures are between 1-4 tickets. I saw Fenris at GenCon and possibly another one. I already had them so I didn't pay close attention.

Thanks for the info William. Wonder why they chose not to release certain things like that. Didn't they release all the stuff for retail from the zombicide black plague kickstarter?

No, there's always been KS exclusive stuff, that's CMON crowd funding style unfortunately. The expansions like The Gods, The Mystics & The Fifth Player expansion were intended for retail, the rest weren't.

The world of KS exclusives - they prey on you're FOMO, and get you to sign up or miss out forever.

I tried making a stand against them, but then I started missing out on things, and... bah.

(that said, I generally DON'T buy retail games that have gameplay changing - e.g. not just decorative - exclusives. Because I hate paying a premium to complete my game)

And for those that don't know it (like me), FOMO = Fear Of Missing Out.

I thought it was MOFO? Maybe I am thinking of something else?

Because they make around 5 times the amount from a KS sale then a retail sale and build massive hype for the retail release, add in the an overwhelming majority then don't even know about the KS exclusives and just buy it at retail and there you go.

because the backers paid a premium for a game they never tested or saw. This is the payoff for us as backers. honestly i'd be choked if people waited, got the base game cheaper after seeing it reviewed amazingly well, and then get the premium items for cheap.

flip side is backers pony-ing up the cash, getting a bad product (either gameplay, components or super unfortunately nothing at all) and waiting a year for others to get the same thing for a fraction of the price.

I'm quickly learning this about them and I decided I'll not back any games on Kickstarter which has exclusive content. That's my decision and others can do whatever they please. I just feel it's downright mean to have KS exclusive items. IMO, kickstarter should be about getting certain content early but eventually everybody else should have an opportunity to get those. I'd be cool with redesigning although so there's unique design to KS exclusive content and less unique design for retail, although.

I just had Broken Token insert assembled and the empty clan box and empty monster container are mocking me everytime I open the box. :-(

Kickstarter is and should be whatever the person running the campaign wants it to be.

That doesn't give you a lot of options - as I guess about 80% of the (big) projects have KSE's! We just had Mythic Battles, Deep Madness and a few other KSE heavy projects .. I think of the top-10 most fiunded KS boardgames only Dark Souls didn't have KSE's ..

Scythe didn't have exclusives and Kingdom Death won't either (at least not gameplay-wise).

But to the point of the OP, people vote on KS with their wallets, and as it turns out having exclusives tends to a good way to get a lot of votes, if for nothing else than the scalper backers. The other option is a big discount. Otherwise, if you are selling something that will be available at retail at similar price (or possibly even much cheaper), why should people risk backing it?
