Only 8 hours to go for the Kickstarter campaign. Don't miss out to back this great game, as this will be a better Among the Stars in my opinion (better gameplay, faster setup time and more accessible theme for all).

And, by the way, time to stop fence sitting and get to farming!

Down to the last hour and we still need just under $3,000 to get the mini-expansion. If you are at all interested in any add-ons or last minute pledge, hope you can commit! surprise

139K not a bad total, and a great finishing goal.

Great campaign.

Shoot!!! I didn't know about this game until seeing today's developer's blog just a couple of minutes ago!

I hope I'll be able to at least check it out via retail

I followed the campaign but unfortunately could not back it at the time. If memory serves me correctly though, there weren't many Kickstarter exclusives. We should be able to buy roughly the same game retail after Essen!

There are a good number of cards, and objective tiles that won't come in the retail edition. Those are what convinced me to back it.

However, they're not exclusive to KS backers either. Artipia will likely sell them on their website. The cost for the retail game + the extras will likely be a little more expensive than the KS price, but it's possible it'll come out about even.

This is good to hear! I checked out their site, right now there's just the option to pre-order the game, but there's no mention of the add-ons. Also, it appears they are a Greek company and the shipping section doesn't really mention international shipping, much less shipping costs.

Do we know whether they will be making the game available in the United States or to distributors in the United States?

KS edition will be shipped from Greece. Another publisher in the states will pick up the printing for other US retail copies.

I'm fairly sure the extra cards will be from Artipia though, so international shipping could be costly. (Don't quote me on that, as I'm not 100% certain.)

The answer is probably in the comments on KS if you'd like to sift through them all.

At the moment, the main concern are the backers. Most of the copies printed will be for them. Some that will remain will go to retailers/distributors afterwards.

If everything goes well we expect a reprint to follow soon within 2017 in which case the game will be widely distributed in the US (and the rest of the world)
