Now that we´ve played a couple of the scenarios, my group an I agree: This game is a gem!

I really regret that I didn´t pledged for the big expansions. Back at the time of the KS it was just a too high investment (on top of my King Pledge) for a game I wasn´t sure if I will like it.

Now that the Expansions are postponed to wave 2 next year I asked Monolith if it would be possible to late pledge for them. Sadly they replied that it won´t be possible.

If Monolith reads this: Any chance that we get a second chance? Maybe as a kind of compensation and goodwill for the rulebook issues we early adopters and fellow backers are going through currently.
Or at least confirm that we can pick them up in retail later on.

If the game does well in sale, there will be addons available at you FLGS for sure.
If you can't stnad waiting anymore, trying a reseller could be a good idea I guess?

The big expansions are all going to be in retail.

Might take a while to get everything sorted, but that surely is their plan (they even listed retail prices with them during the campaign).

Also, some of the small (non-exclusive) expansions are listed in their shop, already. Prices are slightly above what was listed as expected retail prices during the campaign, so I would expect that for the bigger expansions as well (likely $60+ for those).

Good to know. My last info was that the retail availability isn´t sure at all.

If they don't change the retail box artwork it will be a fail. There is not a single miniature printed on the back of the boxes.

There's another thread with those who have buyer's regret and they are talking about selling their copies. eBay or direct contact with the disgruntled is probably your best option for the near term.

I would be very surprised if a lot of potential buyers would make their decision solely on looking at the box. I think most people wanting to buy the game will go in a stores having already looked at all the available info online and will know what is in the box. I agree that for a small part of the potential buyers DISCOVERING the existence of the game in a store, it might be problematic, but again, everyone has a smartphone and can check additional info online (reviews, pictures) while in the store, before deciding on spending 100+ bucks in a game. I really don't think this would be a major factor in the success of fail of the game sales in stores.

Apparently this is not true, according to some other posts I've seen. The KING pledge box does not picture the minis, but that will not be sold at retail.

The BARBARIAN pledge box does show the minis, and that is the retail version.

I don't have first hand knowledge of this, but that is what I've "heard".

Ah ok, but the addons are also without pictures. The guest boxes are even without artwork of some minitures.

Good points--the King pledge is what most people are looking at, and it's purely for Kickstarter. The Barbarian box is what will hit store shelves.
