It appears there is enough interest, so I applied for the crowd sale.
I'd like to have got it before Oct, but I did not get it early enough.
It will start the 17th of October and go for 2 weeks. I'll post on here when it starts, or you can go to the crowd sale page, make an account and ask to be reminded there, and will keep a tally of reminders requested.

Re: crowd sale at the gamecrafter?
Sorry if I am out if the loop. I watched the Rahdo vid and subscribed to this game but have no other knowledge.

What is the state of the game? Are components and rules final?

Re: crowd sale at the gamecrafter?
Is this for an early prototype version? Will the game be printed any other way or available in the US?

The rules have not been professionally edited (but they are done), as well as 2 additional versions by fellow geeks to "clarify and make sense of my rule book" which some have said is hard to muster, but others have figured out the game from it with little problem. The rule book that I used to have was complained that the background made it hard to read (though it looked nice) so I went with black on white for the rules part of it, for the most part.

I have tried the publisher route, and have had little response since the video was posted, which was a clear-cut way for anyone to see it and sense if they wanted to publish it. So, there are currently no other plans to publish it any other way. TGC has now a way to cut tiles of any shape which they could not do before. Now, it can be played out of the box.

Re: crowd sale at the gamecrafter?
I did try to figure out a way for solo-play to benefit the solo players, but I couldn't come up with "do better than the last time you played", and that doesn't feel like it is really a solo-variant with tension like the full game.

Kickstarter seems like a better option. Have you considered it?

Because I am not a publisher, nor intend to try my hand at that. I've seen many fellow BGDG members who have tried that route, some to great success, others to bankruptcy. I'm not willing to gamble on something I don't have the complete knowledge of how it works.
Also, TGC are also a great bunch of guys (even a real time chat) and now that they can do custom tiles, it makes the game possible. In the last few years as it has been print and play, it has also improved through out-of-house players.

That is a big problem and I wish I could change that, but postal costs just keep going up. Only thing I could suggest would be finding a trustworthy mule from maybe BGG.con that can do a 3-way transfer.

edit: due to a lot of wooden pieces I'm not sure it would be in time for Essen-Spiel. I missed an opportunity there to make things cheaper, and give mules something to take over, rather than bring back.

Re: crowd sale at the gamecrafter?
The cheapest option shipping to Thailand cost 35usd. A little too high for total cost. But im kind of interest , will finish the rule ASAP and be right back.

Re: crowd sale at the gamecrafter?
Is there a pre-ordering system you could use?

During the week of the crowd sale, if you order, you will get a discount of $5 off the $65, so $60. But as more order it during that week, more discounts will be added, to a max of $20 off if 100 orders are met. So, the preorder idea won't work with that model. But anyone can just it at full price right now, that is the tgc preorder system, because they won't print one unless it is paid for beforehand.
