No problem for me either - better to have a finished product (and what game this one has become!). Kudos to Isaac for telling it like it is and being straight-forward - he's just as keen to get it right as we are to get a good game!

Looking at my personal KS list, Original Estimate was May.
If we get this in January, that is 8 months delay. Progress is being made, and folks are being kept up to date.
Serpent's Tongue was 18 months delayed (July 2012 -> Dec 2013) and it turned out to be an amazing game.

Word. Kickstarters are late. Often without communication. Not everyone can be Jamey Stegmeier and the Miracle Crew.

Oh no!! =(
I certainly do not regret backing this project as I´m really sure that for me it will be one of the greatest board games ever designed so far. It´s never good to read about delays but this board game seems to REALLY be worth the wait. I will be so happy when it finally arrives.

Really?

I'm not bothered by the delay at all. Have you seen the size of the box? Have you seen the amount of components? And all of the Legacy content? I never expected the game any sooner than 2017 tbh.

Retail price of the game appears to be $120 btw...

Shit happens, we all know it.. there's a reason most companies don't announce dates until the products are already on the boat. Isaac has been very communicative and always up-front about the status. Very few KS backers, in my experience, are all *that* worried about delays in general... it's when the creator just drops off the face of the planet for months at a time or outright lies about the status, etc. Then beyond that I'm getting a copy at $64 shipped.. retail is looking to be 100ish even after discounts.

Not really sweatin' it, I must say.

Great communication just makes the wait not seem so long.
Besides with essen just over and a bunch of games coming out I got plenty to do.

Delay in this one doesn't faze me as Isaac is doing a great communicating what all is happening...contrast that to the DrawLabs/Artipia shipping fiasco with Project Elite.

Did you see the game in Essen? If you had, you'd preorder right away. Believe me.

With this particular game I knew going in that it was going to be at least six months late and backed it anyway. There was simply no way he was going to get all of the scenario content done on his original timeline. Add in a few manufacturing issues and here we are. Not a big deal at all to me. The jury is out on whether the game tells a compelling story and I look forward to finding that out.

LOL. No. Some KS projects are delayed by years. A few months is nothing.

Word on the street, is it.

Yes. The best games are quickly made and delivered.

..Why come here and rub it in our faces..?

Uhh.. yeah, dude. We backed the game on kickstarter. It's because we believe in it. But this is probably not the same crowd that backs the ones that you do. Because we didn't care about exclusives, we just want a great game.

So any amount of time it takes, to get that great game, the most of us are willing to deal with.

And yes, you'll be able to buy it when it hits retail, with no sweat off your back. You're welcome.

He also seems to be frustrated with the delays and working hard to make sure that we have a massive, finished game with quality components. I was late to the party and didn't back the Kickstarter, but I didn't hesitate to pre-order.

+1. I'm also backing Masmorra. CMON hasn't updated the project since mid-August and it was originally scheduled to ship next month. THAT'S a shitty way to run a Kickstarter.

This game is looking like everything I hoped it would be and I'm very happy with my decision to back it. Isaac is a perfect example of how a small publisher should handle a large Kickstarter and the bumps incurred with such a project. As another good example, take a look at the Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game campaign. Tristan is handling that delay exceptionally well and there hasn't been a single dissenting voice in the whole campaign.

I'm another who didn't back at kickstarter, but preordered as soon as I could. I'd have loved it for Xmas, but I have no regrets.Good information has been forthcoming as well.

Less happy with the Nemo's War campaign. Not so much the delay, although I seem to recall they didn't want to go to kickstarter until the art was mostly done, but more the late update that thing changed and their would be a delay. But instead of frontfooting it,the delay seemed to come out of the blue after months of happy sounding updates from VPG. I have more of a problem with that approach which feels a little deceitful -although I don't think it was deliberate.

My only problem with Isaac's updates is I hate bolded or underlined sentences in text. Grrrr, but that is a different axe....

I'm glad this KS seems to have avoided attracting the impatient type. Its got one of the few comments sections that aren't a chore to read.

I never pay attention to delivery dates on Kickstarters I back. It comes when it comes. Kickstarter is nor a pre-order - you're fronting money to allow someone to make a game you want. It's much more important that the game is done well, play-tested well, and fabricated with high quality.
As an extreme example - Kingdom Death: Monster was 2 years late, and it's awesome!
