Will there be a level that does not include the expansion?

All levels include the expansion. As a reward for backing the campaign, all backers receive the expansion for free, months before it will be available for purchase to the general public. The size of the expansion will grow based upon the success of the campaign (more details Thursday).

Also, every backer receives the exclusive "Epic Hero Alternate Art Card Set" for free as well. This set will also grow as we hit stretch goals. Please note that the exclusive set does not affect gameplay.

Thanks,

Andrew

When the lowest tier is $80, the "backers receive the expansion for free" bit feels weird.

Well, you don't know what is in the game yet, right? That also includes your shipping, so based on those two factors let's give them benefit of the doubt for now.

You're absolutely right, and I'm ashamed of myself. Mechs & Minions has evidently ruined me.

I think it's called the "wait for Retail and get it much cheaper" level.

Hi, Christopher.

The game will retail for $80 due to the miniatures and other components, including over 200 cards and 9-10 punchboards worth of tiles and tokens.

The expansion will eventually be sold separately at retail, but the price is currently unknown because its size will be determined by the success of the KS campaign. But no matter how big it gets, you receive it much earlier at no additional charge.

Unfortunately that pledge level is only available in the U.S.

I would not be too sure about that. Several German and English importers, Brave New World say, could import it, even if there is no official distribution.

this helps. The limited information so far had me thinking this was primarily a smaller card game.

Perhaps I missed something with the Dungeon Horde level. $540 for 6 base pledges = $90 per base pledge (incl. shipping). Base pledge is $80 plus shipping ($0/$10/more for US/CentralEurope/other). So Dungeon Horde is not very attractive. Or what did I miss?

6*($80+X) is more than $540 when X > $10.

Correct, this level is a way for customers outside of the US, Canada, and most EU countries to cap the shipping at $10 per person. This was requested by Australian backers during Canterbury, and so we thought we'd make it available here as well.

Hi, Noahboa.

Unfortunately, we could not get painted samples in time for the kickstarter, but I will be posting other painted miniatures from the same manufacturer.

Hi, Giannis.

We will ship to Greece from Germany, but we were unable to bring down the cost to ship there, unfortunately.

Thank you so much for combining the shipping price in the pledge.

Most companies seem to leave that separate for 2 what I'm guessing are 2 main reasons
1.) shipping charges won't help drive SG's
2.) it makes the game appear more affordable.

For those on the fence about the $80 price tag (in the US) imagine it like this.

$40 Base Game = 17 miniatures, cards, board, tokens, etc
$20 Expansion = X miniatures, X?
$5 Alt Art Card Set for the Heroes
$15 Shipping
___________________________________
$80 Total

Looking pretty darn reasonable now ehh?




As a comparison:
Masmorra KS was
$65 Base Game = 5 miniatures, cards, board, tokens, etc
$0 Expansion(SG's) =14 miniatures, cards, dice, etc
$15 Shipping (approx for me)

___________________________________
$80 total

They've already almost got the number of miniatures beat in the base game alone and there's still more (presumably) to come in the expansion.
