Hello everybody,

We are getting ready for our Kickstarter Campaign to go live this December 14th. I wanted to post in here to see if this is something some of you might be interested in.

We (Not-So-Bored Games) are working with Chad Hoverter (Sculptor for Mice and Mystics and the Investigators in the new Cthulu Pandemic game) and Jens Bengtsson (Character Design and Pose Illustration) to create a set of premium plastic miniatures (Board Game Quality from PandaGM). This first set will be at least 7 uniquely colored plastic pieces (Up to twelve with Stretch Goals) and it is an upgrade kit perfect for Pandemic.

If that sounds interesting and you want to learn more here is a link to our website with the project info. www.notsoboredgames.com

If this sounds like something you want to follow, be sure to sign up for the newsletter at the bottom of the site. Or, head over to our Facebook page and "Like" it there. https://www.facebook.com/notsoboredgames/

We are very open and interested in all your feedback and comments!

Thanks!

Is this an officially sanctioned upgrade kit?

No, "OUTBREAK" is not an officially sanctioned upgrade kit for Pandemic. While these pieces could be used for other purposes, our primary inspiration comes from wanted to make pieces that we could use with Pandemic. We have designed characters that fit within these same roles in this theme, and will use similar colored plastics as those colors found within the Pandemic roles.

That said, we sought out experienced professionals with the intent to make a set that would both stand out on its own but also be attractive to their fans.

Chad Hoverter has hand sculpted these pieces (that we then use to create the steel cast moldings). He was the talent behind Mice and Mystics and has also worked with ZMAN on their new Cthulu themed Pandemic board game. Here is a link to some of his work: https://www.facebook.com/DMG-Miniature-Factory-2838694618128...

But again, all of that said, this is not a licensed Pandemic product. We are hoping to provide a similar service as that of http://www.meeplesource.com/ They are widely supported and create meeples for tons of games, but are not officially licensed. But, rather than creating wooden meeple upgrade kits, we want to create a line of Miniatures Upgrade Kits, where it might make sense to do so. We intend to engage with our community, and allow them to vote on future projects (should this product even be of interest to more than just a few people).
