Watch it Played is doing another drive for support of the excellent video run throughs of games. Pledging support comes with perks - promo cards. This season has plenty of brand new promo cards, including one for Above and Below.

By pledging your support to Rodney, he’ll be able to keep making fantastic videos. And as a bonus, you get an exclusive promo card for the game you love!

Here's what it looks like:

Looks nice but $20 for one card is way to expensive for my taste.

Understood, but to be fair, the $20 is for the campaign and the promo is a bonus. It is not like the promo is being old for $20.

They also hit the stretch goal that allows an additional promo to be added to the pledges that provide promos. So the $20 pledge gets you two promos (or the Rodney Dead of Winter since it counts as two because of its size).

Except that if you don't like Rodney's videos, you are essentially paying $20 to get the card. (Fortunately for me I'm not a "have to have everything" kind of person.)

What trend, reviewers asking for contributions for providing a FREE service with no other compensation for their time? I think it's pretty smart: you can enjoy the service for free, or pay a little for it and get a nice bonus.

Hell, $20 for two promos of your choice is way better than the Dice Tower's policy of "pay $100 for a bunch of stuff you don't need and you can get the one promo you actually want."

I can't speak for what trend Magic Pink is referring to specifically, although I, too, despise backer-only exclusive gameplay content. Aesthetic stuff, like alternate artwork or "deluxe" components that don't have actual gameplay impact are fine, but something that has a gameplay effect? I try to avoid those kickstarters, for the most part. (There have been a few exceptions, but I've passed on far more than I've jumped in on).

Well, to be fair to Ryan, at least with Near & Far, he didn't do any kickstarter exclusives, and he did make his Above & Below exclusives available through the N&F kickstarter, too.

And I have seen another game with some kickstarter exclusives that made those exclusives available during the kickstarter for the expansion.

Still don't like the idea, but at least those two instances showed they were more interested in getting their stuff to gamers than arbitrarily limit gameplay content.

You're almost right: the coins in N&F are exclusive and in A&B the wooden tokens were exclusive and couldn't be bought through the N&F campaign. But both are only optical changes to the game.

This is one of those responses that makes me think BGG needs an :eyeroll: emoticon...

Really? You DON'T want publishers to offer additional content? This is Red Raven Games helping out someone who contributes a great deal to our hobby and it's a GOOD thing.
