I know it has been widely circulated that a 6 player expansion will be offered and most expect an alternate clan as a KS exclusive, but is anyone else getting worried this will not happen?

Are the Add-Ons and alternate clans something they hold back for a week or two to reinvigorate the pledges? Is this how it happened in Blood Rage?

The War Markers, Plastic Political Mandates and Daikiju all look fantastic and the other stretch goals are great, I have been counting on a 6 player game and hoping for an alternate clan as a KS exclusive. Will my hope be fulfilled in a big way or not?

The honor track on the board seems to have 6 spaces, so I think a 6th player is most likely.

Yes they hold them back so that the add-ons will fund the other KSE stretch goals they haven't shown yet. Everything (or at least 95% of the content) is already planned out. Just think of the 28 days of kickstarter as a brilliant marketing campaign.

There is nothing to worry about, the board already has a spot for the 6th player, and 6 months ago in interviews they already talked about the game playing up to 6.

This will totally happen. There is no way it won't happen.

Don't worry so much

I actually hope that there are 8 total clans to choose from for the 3-6 player game once all is said and done.

It would really give some nice variety to with the asymmetrical nature of the clans.

fingers crossed

There will almost certainly be a 6 player expansion.
Along with that, you can be 99,999% sure it won't be kickstarter exclusive.
There might be a certain clan of models that is kickstarter exclusive, but the ability to play with 6 won't be. Oh, and ofcourse the kickstarter 6 player expansion will have the kickstarter extras (tokens)

Take a look at the colours of the clans, their starting positions in the video and the number and colours of the game board areas. I'm 95% sure there will be 8 different clans in the end. Not sure if any of them will be exclusive. :-)

This. However, as far as a seventh or eighth clan - that's a lot of work in terms of art design and minis, and because each clan is mechanically unique, there's a lot of design and testing that would have to go into each and every one. That's a limiting factor that didn't apply to Blood Rage.

I believe that the 6P pack with be the Orange player based on the board layout,... and I'm sure I saw a shot somewhere of an orange mini or player board,... can't remember where.

as to 7/8 - just a hope on my part,.... It would be nice to get more variable factions,...... and these are pros; they have had plenty of time to develop them. It's some of these monsters that I worry about the chances of OP problems.

If additional clans we there; I'd pay for them even,.... but I hope that we get at least one for free.

"There will be add-ons" .. may as well be metal coins.

I just hope we don't get a multitude of guest boxes with clans for $20 a piece !! wow

Yup. I bet on that as well, similar to BR and the Wildboar clan.

Demanding money for a 6 player expansion is really shitty from CMON when the game had always been designed to accommodate 6 players...

The add-ons come about a week apart to disrupt the quieter periods of the campaign. 6th Player, Art book at the least, I'm less confident there'll be a 7th and 8th clan though. They may do metal coins if people keep asking for them.

Right, the update says that this clan is all that you'll need to play with six players. Great news!

That being the case, that means that there is a seventh clan coming which will be available at retail. I'm guessing that it will be an add-on/expansion. Kickstarter backers won't "need" it, but those who want to own it will be able to buy it during the campaign in order to get all of the premium extras like plastic fortresses, etc.

Even though I will probably buy that, too, I think making the Kickstarter-exclusive clan fully functional for all backers is a great, fan-friendly improvement over the Blood Rage campaign.
