Both core games - $99 MSRP each

The Hero Packs contain the 16 figures as stretch goals (but will be sold separately in stores at $29.99 MSRP each - backers got an amazing deal!)

Boss pack + Minion pack are the 2 "true" expansions

plus, the 100 glow in the dark skulls, the exclusives box (Mr. Moneybags; Guardian; 100 non-glow skulls), and an extra dice bag.

That's because later today there is going to be a MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH better update on the KS with this, and more, and (possibly) container tracking info. Didn't want to spam updates two days in a row.
yuk

That said, I did post it in a comment, with a link to this image, saying there would be a great update soon.

Would you mind posting here when it goes up? I was a late backer so don't get emails when the KS updates post. Thanks!...

Absolutely!

If I happen to forget zombie then just check the KS updates, we never hide them or make them "backer only" - it should go up some time later today.

Arthur, this is pretty cool. Can I pry and ask if you folks are planning to send out copies to any reviewers or folks with board game Youtube channels? I would think this would be right up the alley of "Watch it Played with Rodney," for example.

Yes, we have several set aside for that. Any suggestions on who you'd like to see review it?

I keep thinking of Rodney Smith and the Watch it Played series because the game is so whimsical, family friendly and fun. He won't review the game but he will give it an extensive, very professional introduction and tutorial.

You already know Tom Vasel and the exposure he brings(although he has been warm and cool on some past PG games). Still, he like dice rolling and whimsical themes, so this might be up his alley?

I would not overlook Joel Eddy and Drive Thru reviews.

Finally, Charlie only offers text reviews BUT he also works now for Geek and Sundry and posts the same reviews there; that would make for great exposure.

If I had four review to copies to send out, I would send them to these three and...yes, Tom Vasel, too. It's his kind of game, so I hold out hope that he sees its awesomeness. My sessions were an absolute blast.

Are you perhaps thinking instead of Lance (Undead Viking)? There is a long running thread about that on BGG, of course. The whole nature of the way it's being discussed turns me off, but I concede that that is one reason I decided not to place his name -- just until that discussion passes.

You are totally right. I apologize. I'll remove my post.

I will say this about Undead Viking:

Sandy was asked by BGgeeks to have Undead Viking review CW during the CW KS. So, we sent him our prototype, and he reviewed it during the KS. We never sent him money for it, and he never asked. And since then, we've given him free games to review, and he's never asked for money from us, nor have we ever paid him (or anyone), for any reviews whatsoever (except for sending reviewers free copies of the game).

...Isn't Rahdo much more a Euro gamer, though? Looking at all of his ten and nine ratings seems to corroborate this and I've heard anecdotally that he has passed or been "meh" on games with too much AT dice chucking sensibilities. ...and OMD very much was that kind of game for me, FWIW.

Just my two cents; he's definitely one of the top tier reviewers with a strong following, no doubt!

Now that the game is on its way, I wanted to have another look at the rulebook. Is the rulebook that can be downloaded from the campaign page up to date?

I believe we sent the final actual PDF in a KS update a few weeks ago.

When our new website goes live in a week or so, we'll have it on the downloads page as well.
